I don't know how much the average person knows about Lovebirds....or just birds in general....Louie normally lays a clutch...4-6 eggs which REALLY depletes her little body of calcium. So....I give her calcium drops in her water and she eventually recovers. This time it appears she has stopped with just one egg....better for her and (ultimately) better for me as she has the tendency to be Vewwwwwwy quiet wjile laying on her eggs. Normally she is very vocal, not so much a squawky bird but she chatters and whistles and talks to herself. Not so much when she is laying and setting. So....in about a week I will disappear her egg and she will get back to normal....such as that could possible be with Louie.

She just won't listen to me....including the fact that she has no mate so the eggs just SEVERELY deplete her clacium levels.....so I have to give her drops...."It's all about YOU, Louie!" She now has ONE egg....usually followed by 3-5 more........

It has been a HECK of a Thanksgiving weekend....been sleepin about 9-10 hours a night. Normally I'm lucky to get 6-7 hours...I guess I'm trying to catch up from the Thanksgiving Day from Hell. Watched the Browns lose miserably today....so what else is new? Ready to start the new week at Kohl's....can't wait to start the week......

After 10 BLESSED hours of sleep (I usually average 6-7) I got up....took care of Louuie & Mackie and headed out to George's Kitchen on Triskett for breakfast. George's is the BEST, HOT, FAST & FRESH breakfast in town. You can't beat it but if anyone has a better place just let me know and I will try it out....or WE can try it out...I'm up for anything these days. A VERY good friend (Thanks, Arlette) gave me some advise not too long ago which I kinda discounted at the time...she said "Don't limit yourself, Barbara" and I have thought of that and tried to follow that ever since. I intend not to limit myself in whatever I am thinking or planning....whatever is possible IS possible.

OK....I'm alive...I'm Alive.....I'm ALIVE!!!!!!! OK, a little dramatic but you get the pic. Kohl's was as busy as expected but not (I fear) as busy as the corporate-powers-that-be hoped....at least not at MY Kohl's. (Notice I say MY Kohl's as if that implies I have ANY ownership....but I digress). I DO believe that all day it should stay pretty damn busy (open until midnight...yeah, I know) and maybe turn out pretty well for said powers and we are stuck with this midnight opening forever. Oh well....I just hope it doesn't change to a 9:00 p.m. opening, I think the midnight idea worked real well.

10:20 p.m., Thanksgiving night....and it's off I go to work! Tonight is Kohl's Midnight Thanksgiving Sale which I understand is HUGE for the Corporation but sucks the big one for us mere cogs. So much for the huge dinner we scarfed down.....all I have now is a knot in my stomach and exhaustion....which....come to think of it is how I live my life now all the time. So what am I complaining about? I DON'T want to go to work! (And my point? I guess I don't have one).
Many things good came out of my life with Ed....top among which are the members of his family who have adopted me as their own. They include: Tracey, Cole, Richard and Dina. Went to dinner for Thanksgiving with Tracey, Cole, her sister, Nicole, husband Kevin, HIS father and Nikki and Kevin's children...what a great family dinner, full of noise, love and of course FOOD! Fabulous dinner Kevin!
I begin recreating my blog on Thanksgiving Day, a new beginning for me and (hopefully) a fresh outlook on life. This year has been horrible so far....my Sweetie of 23 years passed, I lost my home, I'm broke.......but I still have my health, my dog, my bird and my job and therein lies the truth. Life goes on, seize the day, move 'em along dogies.......whatever....I will persevere.
