quick-fire updates

Happy Monday, everyone. I'm trying to ease back into blogging after my recent hiatus. I promise to stop by and catch up on everyone's adventures this week. In the meantime, here is a quick update on all-things Rae:

1. Tito is on the rebound
We haven't had any further episodes since last week. We've been monitoring him closely and have been encouraged to see him get back to his old tricks this week. Rather than putting him on some hardcore seizure meds (ie. phenobarb) we are hoping this was a one-time thing that won't appear again. Hubs is convinced it had something to do with his vaccinations, which just so happened to be given the day before his seizures. I dunno. We'll see what happens. In the meantime, Tito has been relaxing and taking it easy.

2. I'm a Godparent!
My niece Savannah was christened on Sunday. What a beautiful day.

3. Wine & Cheese
We hosted 50 people at our house on Saturday for a 40th Anniversary party for my inlaws. It was a wine & cheese. I managed to navigate the spread while keeping my snacking under control and enjoyed 1 glass of wine and some sparkling water. Most important: I was able to keep my sanity while entertaining this huge crowd.

What a weekend. I'm wiped! I'm looking forward to getting back to my routine. First on my agenda: meal planning & grocery shopping. Oh, and a date with my running shoes. :)


  1. Yay, I am so glad to hear Tito is doing better!

  2. Glad your doggie is working hard at recuperation 8)

    "...and work towards my goal of running 5 miles comfortably (at whim!) by May 2011."

    Dudette. It's May. Do you have the whim?

  3. I'm so happy to hear good news about Tito! Hopefully he's all in the clear now. How cute is he just basking in the warm glow of the sunshine??

  4. I've been missing you bloggy bud =) <3 hugs your way <3

  5. Sounds like an action packed weekend indeed. Hope the puppy heals, the god child flourishes and that the wine & cheese were tasty.

    Have fun with those running shoes!

  6. Glad Tito's on the mend. What a wonderful weekend all around. :)

  7. a day after vaccinations... that's really strange. i hope the little fella's all better real soon. that wine and cheese spread looks fantastic. my sanity would be under threat with anything over 5 people. 50 people, well done.

    quick fire... mmm, top chef.

  8. I'm glad to hear the little guy is doing better! Our furry friends are family, after all.

  9. So sad when our pets are sick!! Glad he is doing better!!

    Wow looks like a fabulous spread. Way to go on resisting!! Don't think I would have done so well!

    The baby is adorable!!

    Keep focused!
