Don’t you just hate it when you’ve imagined what you’re day’s gonna be like, and then the day passes without it happening that way?
I was supposed to be in a meeting again today, the second meeting in preparation to the youth camp we’re having this weekend. I had to skip that because I needed to take Zune to the vet this morning. He had diarrhea all weekend, you see, and we just want to make sure he’s okay. But when we got to the vet’s it was closed; the doctor was on a house call.
After lunch, I was supposed to see my own doctor to follow up on my case. I don’t think this one’s going to happen today though – I may not have enough time left in the afternoon. I fell asleep you see.
From the time we got back from the vet’s at around 1130am, until my brother got home from shopping at 230pm, I did nothing but sleep. Okay, I also tried to blog and I did successfully install McAfee on my PC. But I was suddenly sleepy, which is a surprise because I had a long sleep last night. I tried having ice cream to keep me awake, but it was of no help. So… instead of heading to my doctor at 1pm so I could still have enough time to take Zune to the vet again, I’d have to choose one task. So we’re going to see Zune’s doctor and maybe not mine.
Bongga yung dance number/entrance ng 26k girls for today’s show. Apparently, it’s their last. It’s our local Deal or No Deal’s last airing, how many seasons did they run? Lately, it’s been really nice watching how Kris has been more comfortable and enjoying her time – dancing with the 26k or with her contestants.
We’ve been hearing about the new show (Bingo?) that’s coming soon, but I thought that DND surely will be back in a few months. But as today’s show progresses, it looks like they won’t. The other Kapamilya game show hosts are today’s contestants – Game Ka Na Ba’s Edu Manzano, and the Singing Bee’s Cesar Montano. They’re playing for a community of aetas in Tarlac, who were affected by the Mt. Pinatubo eruption that happened a decade ago, but continues to cause challenges for so many families and communities.
There was a fire drill at ABS-CBN this morning, and well, Mother Ignacia was blocked off because there really were fire trucks (or maybe just one) for the drill. My dad was picking me up and I had to meet him at the ELJ drive entrance instead. Received a message from one of my agents saying he’s stranded outside the building until the fire drill is finished. Ugh. Had to call Workforce to let them know.
When I finally got home, I realized that not only was Inday here for ironing day, there was Milo and his crew outside working on the roofing for our back porch. I had anticipated some noise that will keep me up, but surprisingly, I fell asleep again on the couch without any effort. Another welcome surprise is that it wasn’t so hot this afternoon, definitely due to the rainshowers.
We’ve had roofing installed on our doorstep and over the steps leading up to it, and then at our porch. But after all these improvements we’ve not thought to finally put railings on the stairs. I guess it’s not that important now since mom’s potter plants serve to block any of the kids from getting too close to the edge. Good thing I was blogging this because I just remembered that we’ve been meaning to have Zune’s fence properly made. I’ve just asked dad now to ask Milo tomorrow how much it would cost to include fence installation this week. Maybe we can finally give the makeshift fence some rest after two years of service. Besides, it’s high time we get something that people can open and shut conveniently when they need to pass, rather than step over like we do now. Haha.
I was at a leadership training all day at work, and I didn’t expect to, but I totally appreciated the theme of that particular training program. If things like these are made available to more employees, NCO will really be loved better by it’s people. All day I was thinking about how I was going to blog about the experience, but too bad I didn’t take note of my thoughts and now I just can’t remember what they were! Haha. 🙂
Oh I did take a photo of my name tent. One thing that NCO invests in is an ongoing learning and development program for it’s managers and employees. I’ve attended a lot of these trainings and everytime, without fail, we are asked to make name tents. It’s become a tradition that starts from Accent/Foundation training. I would write my name in so many different names, and include doodles. Today though, just a simple smiley was enough.
Mom is home from her work trip in Hong Kong. But you know what? I was more excited about having the camera back than the shirts she bought for us. LOL!
I took this photo before going to bed this morning. It’s been extra cold these past two days, and though Zune doesn’t seem to be complaining, I figured he’d appreciate a blanket. I covered him with this towel and he didn’t try taking it off or anything!
Esban also took photos today, and I’m thinking of having him start his own Project 365. I can setup a blog for him, and post the photos myself, along with whatever he wants to say. I don’t have time to post them up right now, but he took great shots of dad’s toy cars. I promise to put them up tomorrow.
These are Zune’s vet vaccination/deworming records. In my excitement to pick him up and take him home yesterday, I forgot to bring the blue one with me (the original which I even got from the breeder). So the doctor we went to gave me a new booklet.
The little puppy with Zune on his picture on the previous post is named Sharpay. We lost her yesterday. Sharpay is Zune’s puppy girlfriend and Esban’s and Dalnes’ pet. It was suspected that she died of the Parvo virus. According to the vet they saw on New Year’s Eve, he has seen to five other dogs who died of it just this past week.
Because we want to be safe, we took Zune to the vet this morning. His regular vet isn’t available, the clinic is closed for the holidays. So we took him to another animal hospital nearby. The doc checked his temperature and he is apparently running a fever. We left him there for further tests and observations.
We all pray that he is well, and that we can take him home this afternoon.
Please pray for him too. My family would be very thankful for your prayers 🙂
We just got back from the vet’s – Zune tested negative for Parvo! Thank God! 🙂 He’s fever has died down too – that may have just been psychological after all.
He does have worms though so the doc went ahead and dewormed him. He also recommended that I give more multivitamins than we are already giving him daily. Plus cod liver oil for his coat. The woman there this morning is apparently from PAWS, and she was giving me tips too. She recommends that I add in malunggay leaves and virgin coconut oil to Zune’s food.
I am so relieved! Thank you so much TRACY for the well wishes, I knew I could count on you 🙂
