I'm Back... for now! August 23rd

I've decided to come back to blogging... I may not be able to update everyday like I used to, but I still want blogging to be a part of my life, so I will try to update as much as possible! Anyways, a lot has been going on in my life since I last posted on this blog... I am losing weight again (not good, I know), but that's mainly been due to stress, not my eating disorder. Peanut has been doing well though, and I'm sure you're all wondering what he's been up to! Well, let's see...

He's been helping us play Scrabble by curling up in the Scrabble box!

Peanut is learning to climb up high, and now he can climb onto the kitchen counters (goodie gaydrops! lol). So he has recently discovered the kitchen sink, as you can see! :)

And I just made another trip to Petco today and bought Peanut a new chew toy (because he is teething like crazy now!). He seems to love it!

Peanut also turned 5 months old on August 13th, and he'll be 6 months old on September 13th. So I decided that it was time to make Peanut's neutering appointment... The big day is September 16th. I know I'll be a nervous wreck, but once a kitten is 6 months old, it needs to be done... I'll definitely keep you posted on how Peanut is doing on that day! While I love and trust his vet, Dr. Sane, I'm not looking forward to dropping him off at the vet's office. It brings back terrible memories with Cloudy (see below).

And now to the "Daily Eats" portion... I don't plan on featuring all my eats anymore, but I plan on featuring some of my eats each post. Anyways, I decided to treat myself to brunch at the Blue Water Grill today... it's a famous restaurant in Union Square.

I usually don't bother featuring what I drink... but you get a complementary drink with brunch, and I chose orange juice, which was awesome... fresh squeezed and all!

For my entree I had a delicious egg white omelette with portobello mushrooms, tomatoes, and low fat muenster cheese. It came with a side of potatoes.

Instead of spending $10 on one of their fancy desserts, when I came home I had a piece of pineapple upside down cake that I got at the Whole Foods Market the other day...

Today is also a bittersweet day for me, because 13 years ago to the day, on August 23rd 1996 we adopted my Cloudy, who was just a 7 and a half week old kitten at the time. I miss him so much, and it's hard for me to grasp that his life is over now... he came and went much too soon. He would have been 13 years old this July. :(

But having Peanut in my life has helped me cope so much after experiencing the terrible loss of Cloudy last year. I also want to thank everyone for their kind words about Cloudy, Peanut, and this blog... And again, I really do appreciate all the comments... I read each and every one!

P.S. Can anyone tell me what happened to the Peanut Butter Swirl blog?! :(

So glad you're back! I kept checking back periodically to see if you were back :) And now you are!! I honestly think that Peanut is the cutest cat, and he seems like such a nice one. I'm sorry about Cloudy, but he'll be in your heart forever :)

I never did the what I eat in a day type posting.. I always felt like that would be too time consuming. But anyway, I hope your stress-level goes down. Take care, Marina.
