Tuesday! Popcorn, Movie and Cokes!!

Today was a good Tuesday all the way around! After a lazy morning I enjoyed a trip to my favorite store - HEB - while Amber got a massage. Since her headache had eased up some we decided to grab some Wendy's burgers and fries. They start out as Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers! Then she and I do what we have ALWAYS done! Amber takes off her lettuce and tomato and gives them to ME! I take off the meat patty and cheese and give them to HER! I end up with a great BLT and she has a  double cheeseburger! Win! WIN!!

Since we were on a roll.....and Amber needs to get out of the house while she can....we decided to take in a movie!! After all - it IS Tuesday!!


This was our movie of choice! Amber and I have both been to Hawaii a number of times - once she and I were there together for 17 days! We LOVED the scenery, the music, and of course GEORGE CLOONEY!! The story line was sad but even that had a silver lining. Amber leaned over and whispered, "I'm glad to be dealing with THIS instead of THAT!!" So true!
It was a good day. Amber is always saying if we lived closer she would go to the movies with me every Tuesday.

 Another blessing from this day - Amber got the blood results from July's trip to the vet yesterday!


It seems that her soon to be 20 year old cat is actually getting healthier!!
Her thyroid was DOWN and her kidney functions were UP!
AND she had gained a pound and a half!
She is good to go! A follow up visit in a year!
The vet said she may live for years to come!

Have I said this already?
It has been a GOOD day!!!

What good times you gals are having. Food, movies, fun... A happy Valentine's Day to you all...

That cat is 20 years old? I'd never know it to look at her. She's really looking great. Glad that her report was so good.

So glad y'all able to get out and Amber is feeling better. July may change her mind about sticking around when those little quads start walking. July will be hiding under the beds full time. LOL
