Eventful Night

Last night was a really rough night. Diesel was up until 5am moaning, shaking, and just couldn’t get comfortable at all. You could see the discomfort in his eyes, which was heart-breaking. We needed to take him to a vet, yet none were open and at that point we had about 18 inches of snow on the ground with more on the way. Our roads weren’t plowed and our cars would not make it. The snow was falling at a rate of 4.5 inches per hour! There was no way we were getting out, plus all the highways and roads were closed. High fines were given to people traveling them.

This morning he woke up and he was a whole different dog. He played in the snow and really enjoyed our 25-minute walk around the neighbor where he had to jump through feet of snow! Here’s a few pictures of his crazy self:

I had to share the picture above. I think he looks so cute! I took this one before the snow really got started, but you can see it definitely started to increase in depth.

The following pictures were all taken this morning. Diesel’s first real snowstorm!!

As you can tell, he loved every bit of it. Too bad he wasn’t at his prime to enjoy it but I really think he had a great time!

Let’s back up to eats from yesterday. After work I came home and wanted something sweet and quick. I bought two boxes of this Fiber One Chocolate Cereal when they were on sale for $1.99. I’m so glad I did because it’s so good! You can’t really even taste that it’s Fiber One!

cereal

I had 1 cup with 1/2 cup Almond Breeze milk. Super satisfying and under 125 calories!

A few hours later, Jhon and I didn’t know what to make for dinner. We ended up with healthy loaded sweet potatoes.

dinnerOn top of my sweet potato was:

  • Sautéed onions and mushrooms
  • Mozzarella, tomato, and basil chicken sausage
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce
  • sprinkle scallions
  • sprinkle parmesan cheese

This dinner was fantastic! Made us super full and content.

Before the snow really got bad, we stopped by a wine/liquor store for some wine since we knew we’d be spending lots of time inside this weekend. The store was packed out with people stocking up for the storm. I picked up this bottle because I love sweet white wine, specifically Riesling. This one hit my taste buds in the right place!

While playing board games with Jhon’s sister, I drank about 2/3 of this bottle! I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes sweet white wine!

That pretty much sums up our night. I definitely went over my calories but it was worth it. Until Diesel became restless, we were having a great Friday night in. I felt so bad for the pup, but hopefully we can get this situation resolved soon! We have a vet appointment Sunday at 10am if things don’t turn around.

After sleeping 3 hours last night, I wasn’t very hungry this morning. We spent a good hour and a half outside and then I finally realized I needed something in my belly. I reached for a pear.

After a 4.5 hour nap, I woke up and kinda threw random things together.

cereal

I had an apple, a cup of Fiber One chocolate cereal with Almond Breeze milk, and about 2/3 cup Kellogg’s blueberry Special K that needed to be finished.

Now I need to get started on my homework assignment due Sunday night. Jhon is resting since he only slept for 3 hours last night and has been up with the pup each night this week. He’s such a trooper but I can tell it’s taking a toll on him.

And for the dog, he finally ate various things today. I have these all-natural bones about the size of a half dollar and he scoffed 10 down. He also had a cup of plain cooked brown rice (in 1/2 cup servings at different times) with some chicken broth. Hopefully this helps move things along and he will poop!!

I just realized how long this post it! If you made it this far, give yourself a pat on the back!

Later!
