Only four more days of work, then I’m off for nine days. I can’t wait because I’m off to Lincoln for a long weekend to visit family.
In other news, I’m feeling a lot better which means the meds must be doing what they’re meant to. I do have a bit of pred-face but that’ll go down, and although I’m still bloating a bit from my food, it’s not as bad as it was. I have managed to go over my daily calories a couple of times this week but that’s not a bad thing; I figured it’s best I go over than under. At least I’ll have eaten enough to not lose any more weight. I’m staying about the same at the moment, going up or down only by a couple of lbs every few days. I’m trying not to weigh myself more than once a week but it’s hard when you think you’ve eaten too much and want to make sure you haven’t put on too much. It’s probably a bad thing that I’m keeping track of my calories; before May this year, I never used to care and just ate if I was hungry or wanted to eat the thing!
For those of you interested, the rats are fine. I’ve moved their cage around a little and cleared out most of their poop (they still haven’t found one consistent spot). They have a litter box but they weren’t really using it so I’ve moved it to one of their more obvious pooping spots in a hope they might actually use it for it’s intended purpose. They have a little igloo for nesting, which they have yet to really explore, as well we a cardboard box which I’ve cut holes in and put some bedding into so they have another nesting spot if they want it. Currently, they’ve taken to sleeping inside the lining of their hammocks (one week in and they’ve already chewed through them!) so it might be a while before they do any real exploring of the new layout. Hopefully, they like it.
