Friendly Fill-Ins

Hello and happy Friday, friends! It's time for the Friendly Fill-Ins challenge, and we'd love for you to join us! My amazing co-host Ellen of 15andmeowing came up with the first two fill-in statements, and I came up with the second two.

1. A veteran I would like to thank today is _________.

2. I can't go a day without _________.

3. _________ is my most frequented _________.

4. This time of year, _________ is _________.

My answers are below in bold.

1. A veteran I would like to thank today is my paternal great-grandpa, as well as my maternal grandpa.
(My great-grandpa served in World War II. He was present at Normandy, and throughout the war he drove a tank. My grandpa was in the Korean War, and if I'm remembering and understanding correctly, he was in charge of climbing communications poles. Or something along those lines. I remember stories about how it understandably worried my grandma that his role often elevated him into the view of enemy soldiers. I'd like to thank both my great-grandpa and my grandpa, though they have passed. I'd also like to thank all of those who have served, past and present. Without them we wouldn't know freedom the way we do today.)

2. I can't go a day without my furbabies.
(This is why I don't enjoy vacations. I'm more of a staycation kind of person. I neither like traveling nor being away from my kitties and pup.)

3. Chewy is my most frequented online vendor these days.
(I do a lot of online shopping, but these days it seems like I'm on Chewy's site making purchases all the time. I think this is currently because a bunch of my fubabies' food and other goods keeps going out of stock, and so I stalk Chewy waiting for it to go back in stock when we need more. It seems like I've constantly got orders going with them lately. Hopefully my shopping with them can become more controlled again when, or if, the supply chain situation improves.)

4. This time of year, my to-do list is daunting.
(I always look forward to the last quarter of the year and the holidays it provides. But, all of those happenings also means the to-do list can get a bit scary at times. I know I'm not the only one with this issue. That said, I always try to make sure I enjoy the holidays for what they are meant to be rather than get bogged down by to-do lists and such. It's not always easy, but I try.)

Flashback Doodle of the Day

Tip of the Day

We're still in the midst of our National Pet Diabetes Awareness Month tips. On this topic, yesterday we discussed observing your furbaby and knowing visible signs of illness. In addition to this, if your furbaby has been diagnosed with diabetes, consider monitoring their blood glucose at home. This is of course not always an option, depending on the furbaby and the situation. But, if it is possible, do discuss this with your veterinarian. Your veterinarian can help you learn how to safely check your kitty or pup’s glucose at home, which can be done simply by using a vein in your kitty or pup's ear and the same type of glucometer a human would use. If nothing else, it is of course advisable to take a diabetic furbaby to the vet for regular glucose and/or fructosamine checks, as well as frequent urinalyses, especially in the early stages of their diabetes treatment.

I'm much more of a staycation person too. I love being home with my furbabies. I have used Chewy for similar reasons as you have. Have a happy Feline Friday! :-)

Have a great weekend!

Such a cutie pie! Your #4 is so true. I already feel like I'm running behind with my decorating because other "things" have popped up...

What a cute pic of Eddy!
Grampa was a communications person in WW11. He repaired the radios in the planes and stuff.
This year the peeps bought a fake Christmas tree so they don't have to wait till the last minute to put up a tree. The cards are designed and purchased. The candy is purchased but they'll fall behind since those cards won't be filled out and mailed until Dec 21.

Eddy, you're a wonderful goof, and that's meant in a good way.

The to-do list does get a bit expansive, doesn't it.
