Goodie Jar – Check In #29

I just looked at my notes and it has not been as long as I thought.  I thought we started confining her at the beginning of July, but it was the beginning of August.  So it progressed faster than I thought.  Either way, I think she was tired of having to stay in one room.  Although she does it anyway on her own, not having a choice is always frustrating — even to a cat.

Anyway . . . . this long story just to say that last night was the first night since the beginning of August that we let the cat stay out.  She was free to roam the house.  I doubt she did much roaming, but at least she had the opportunity.  So far she has not thrown up and I think we are on our way to controlling her symptoms.  She has been eating a very healthy amount and I do believe gaining some weight.

So I have a few things to put in my good jar.  In addition to our cat improving, the Nia class the Nia students asked for which started two weeks ago on Thursday mornings is doing well.  Our weather this summer has been awesome.  Although it is going to be hot over the Labor Day Weekend least it has not been hot all summer long.

So how is your Good Things Jar doing?  Is it getting full?  

Let me hear it. What have you got to say about this post?
