DAY THREE HUNDRED OF THE HAPPINESS PROJECT

DAY 300.  Yay!  Happy Gay Pride!  I was up early and out the door.  I was a bit rushed at the end and forgot my borrowed boa.  I realized I left it about 4 blocks away, too far to go back.

I got to the meet site and we had to wait.  And wait.  And wait.  It was such a long wait.  I could have gone back for the boa 100 times.

I got to meet some nice people from the foster/adopt agency that I was marching with.  One guy in particular who was really great.

Finally we started marching.  I marched and danced and gave out beads.  I was the only person dressed up in our contingent.  I was the only person dancing in our contingent (except the dancers from the dance studio).  I was going to have fun!  Life was good!

I had a good time.  I came home and took a long bath to ease those aching muscles.  I was happy that I did the walk and the wait with little problem.  I am in better shape than I thought.  Oh, so happy!

Then I watched the Game of Thrones finale.  

Until tomorrow...

DAY TWO HUNDRED AND NINEY-NINE OF THE HAPPINESS PROJECT

Day 299.  Today was Pink Saturday. That is the day before the Pride parade.  I was invited to a Pink Party.  First step I had to find something to wear.  I don't have really any pink.  I finally found this t-shirt that I bought as a gag years ago.  It says "Girls Just Want To Have Fun".  It is bright pink.  Perfect!  Add some pink beads and I am ready to go.

The party was fun.  I always have a hard time at parties where I don't know anyone.  Especially when I am one of a handful of women and there are almost 100 guys.  It is daunting.  My friend finally came and rescued me until I found someone to talk to and then he went off to talk to his friends.  I had a great time.

Until tomorrow...

DAY TWO HUNDRED AND NINEY-EIGHT OF THE HAPPINESS PROJECT

Day 298.  This is the start of Pride Weekend.  I don't have anything planned tonight.  I wanted to order food but everything is such chaos that I gave that thought up.

I decided to march in the Pride parade.  I tried to buy some rainbow flag items for marching and everything was sold out so I put out an SOS to my neighbors for some help.  I needed some clothes or items.  The offers came in.

One neighbor offered some pants.

These are actually fuchsia and blue.
Look at little Lucky
Another neighbor offered me a rainbow tutu.  I borrowed a boa from another neighbor.  Then some beads.

I wore the swirly pants with sneakers for comfort.  The organization I marched with gave me a t-shirt.  I was going to wear the boa but I ran out and left it on the table!  I had my beads.

Until tomorrow...

DAY TWO HUNDRED AND NINEY-SEVEN OF THE HAPPINESS PROJECT

Day 297.  Today I went to see my Primary doctor.  I had a form for him to fill out for my foster/adoption process.  I had to get a TB shot.  I am allergic to the TB test so for 40 years I had to get chest x-rays.  About 10 years ago I learned about a new test called the Gold Test that is a blood test that tests for TB.  Now I don't have to get chest x-rays anymore.  That makes me so happy.  I don't want to glow when I get older.

Until tomorrow...

DAY TWO HUNDRED AND NINEY-SIX OF THE HAPPINESS PROJECT

Day 296.  I got the results from Happi's tests.  Her tests came out fine.  She doesn't have a urinary tract infection.  I am so happy.  The vet also said they were able to x-ray her organs and her spine.  Her organs are fine.  Then her spine looked wonderful considering she has 3 legs.

This is good news.  She has the ulcer and that is bad but not as bad as I could be.

Until tomorrow...

DAY TWO HUNDRED AND NINETY-FIVE OF THE HAPPINESS PROJECT

Day 295.  I took Happi to the vet today.  Happi has been having problems for a few weeks and I felt like it was time to check her out.  She has been vomiting, peeing, and crying.

Yesterday I got home and she was on my bed crying.  Very unlike her.

I was worried something was really wrong with her.

The Vet thinks she has an ulcer.  Happi has been put on Prilosec and some anti vomiting medicine. The poor baby.  Hopefully this will make her feel better.

The tests will come back tomorrow and we will see if anything else is wrong.  The good news is the x-ray they did showed that her organs are good and her spine is in better condition than I thought.

Tomorrow I get the results from the tests.

Until tomorrow...

Until tomorrow...

DAY TWO HUNDRED AND NINETY-THREE OF THE HAPPINESS PROJECT

Day 293.  Today was clean the house day.  My friend H is coming over later on and I want the house to look nice.  Plus it needs to be cleaned and picked up.  I also did laundry.  It was one of those domestic days.

My friend H came over in the afternoon and we hung out in the backyard.  It was nice using the backyard.

Until tomorrow...

DAY TWO HUNDRED AND NINETY-TWO OF THE HAPPINESS PROJECT

Day 292.  Today I cleaned out the pond.  All the water evaporated so there was this film left in the bottom.  I climbed in and raked up all the stuff on the bottom.  The leaves and stuff.  I took apart the pump, filter and hose.  I cleaned most of it but threw away the stinky hose.  The pond is empty except the cement blocks.  The plan is to fill it in with sand.


The remaining fish are in a fish tank and today I cleaned it out and moved it to another location.  They look so happy.


Until tomorrow...

DAY TWO HUNDRED AND NINETY-ONE OF THE HAPPINESS PROJECT

Day 291. I have not had much time to do much soul searching this month.  Not too much relaxing or meditating.  This has been a big work month.  I have been working a ton of hours and can barely keep up with all the work.  I am not complaining but it is a bit exhausting and it makes it hard to complete my goal this month.  I am supposed to be getting enough sleep and meditating and taking quiet walks.  Yeah, not so much.

Until tomorrow...
