Grabbing the bull by the horns.

I am managing to get a lot of things done these last couple of days, and that is a good thing, because I turned out to have to make all sorts of last minute arrangements. This came at the same time that I had some other commitments, so the last few days in my agenda have been filled up with notes and reminders.
I keep thinking now that I am forgetting something, and I am sure I am, and that it will come back to me when I can't do anything about it. My mind is not always as sharp as I'd like it to be and sometimes crucial "to do items" slip through the cracks. Since they are not matters of life or death, I will not worry about them too much and figure that, in the end, everything will land on its feet.
I am in the process of changing banks and it isn't as simple as it sounds, although my new bank has a way of making it as easy as possible. I've still got to keep my wits about me and make sure I transfer my money from one account to the other at the right time. I've got a booklet with a step by step description of how to go about it, so anyone can do it, but I am not just anyone and mistakes can be made.
The bank I chose is a bank that invests in environmentally and socially and economically responsible projects and I thought it was about time that I got away from the big mega banks that have all the wrong kind of super power and gave this bank a chance. I had given it a lot of thought and made the decision when I saw another commercial of them on television and became convinced that I should do this.
Tyke is doing a lot better and walking much more easily. I can tell that he still has some pain, but I think the medication that I gave him this morning does help him. He is more alert and I am also happy to say that he likes his new food and eats it without making a fuss. I thought he would complain about it because it's a special food that is very low in calories. Apparently it is also very tasty.
I am glad to see that some clouds have drifted into the sky and are blocking the sun. It will be a bit cooler when I take Tyke for a walk in a while. Luckily, there is a bit of a draft blowing through the apartment because I've got the windows open and I am sitting right in the way of it here at the computer. Tyke is lying in it too, so we've both got the best spot.

So glad that Tyke is doing so much better. How is your leg?
