I should be heading out to the hospital to visit Dad right now. Instead I'm going to write a quick entry here before going.|
This morning I drove out to the far away pet store that sells the kind of food Fawn eats. Fawn's vet recommended a bit of change in her diet. While I am running low of her old food, I'm not yet out of it. I figured I'd buy the new stuff and gradually change the food over in the next week or two. I actually bought a small bag of the old food too so I could be sure the change happened gradually. I remember the last time I tried a sudden change in Fawn's food she stopped eating almost entirely which caused me to search and find this pet store that sells the kind of food Fawn's used to eating.
I think I mentioned that that pet store is near a major book store. Given everything I've been through lately, I figured I'd treat myself to some audio books and bought two. One of which was far more expensive than I had planned on allowing myself to buy. Ah, I'll survive on eating chicken feathers instead of the chicken for a time. Although, I'm already getting used to feathers. Gotta change that.
I'm finding what I've written amusing because it is giving me an almost perfect segway [<--how do you spell that? My spellcheckers aren't figuring out the word I want, and I don't have time to look it up either right now] to one of the audio books I bought which deals with how to handle change in one's life; Who Moved My Cheese?
I just finished listening to the introduction and story. There is also a section where they recorded a discussion about the story at the end of the CD. I haven't listened to that yet. I want to think about the story itself for a time before I hear other people's opinions.
There seems to be a theme going on here. Some time ago I wrote something along the lines that perhaps I should compare and contrast responsibilities vs limitations. That ties in with wanting to change but being held back. As I said when I first mentioned it, that's a whole book if I plumb those depths, and right now it's time to head off to see my Father.
