I know that I said I wouldn't mention my websites anymore for a while, but I have to share some good news - I finally got in touch with Dave who updated the DNS info on kevinearley.net and I was able to upload my files to the new server! :) Kevin's site is online again! :D Thanks so much to everyone who put up with me while I was trying to deal with this for the past few days. :)

In Sydney news, Mark & I have been putting VitaGravy in her dry dog food on the weekends. :) We bought a bottle at the last Pet Expo that we went to because we thought she'd enjoy a little variety every now and then. She LOVES it! It normally takes her a while to eat her regular dry food because she'll sniff it, eat some, walk away - try to beg for our food, then when she realizes that we won't give her any, she'll reluctantly eat it. We were happily surprised when her food was gone within a matter of minutes when we used the gravy!

The only problem is that we're afraid that she'll start to expect it every meal. :P Tonight when we put the dry food in her dish, she looked at it for a long time, then up at us as if to say, "Hello? Gravy please?" ;) We'll probably only use it on the weekends sparingly or she'll never go back to eating plain dry dog food again. ;P

In other news, I've been eating WAY too much! With all the stress-eating we've all been doing at work lately AND the no exercise evenings I've been having, I've been fitting into my "pre-diet" clothes again! :( I know that I have to turn my eating habits around soon, but with Mark's birthday and the conversion at work coming up, I don't know how I'll be able to. :P

Speaking of Mark, he's going to be away in Las Vegas next weekend with my in-laws on a family trip. Unfortunately, with the upcoming conversion at work, I wasn't able to go with them. :( I know he'll have fun though since he's more of a Vegas person than I am (I enjoy gambling, but he LOVES it) and it'll be a good chance for me to catch up with some work around the house while he's gone. It might also be a perfect time to start my new "healthy eating" plan (since when he's home we always end up eating out on the weekends). :P

Hope you all have a nice evening! I'm off to tweak the Bets site a little more. :D

YAY for getting intouch with Dave!

Thanks Stacey! I was SO happy to receive his email! :D And the DNS info propagated VERY quickly - I was SO happy! :D

It's so nice when things get moving quickly. It's just a big sigh of relief.

Glad your site is back up and you got everything straightened out!!

Thanks Ashley! The poor hosting company that I was with is still having server issues. :( I feel bad for them, but I just can't wait around with no idea how long it'll take for them to restore their servers. :( I'm glad that it all worked out and that Kevin's site is back online in time for his big concert this weekend. :D

Me too! ;) But I know what a busy guy Dave is, I'm just very thankful that he was able to change the DNS info as quickly as he did! :)

Haha about Misty and Tytan! :) I know a guy who used to microwave his food for his dog... It got to be such a habit that when he'd try to feed his dog room temperature dog food straight from the can, the dog refused to eat it. ;) Gotta love them! :D

Yay for you getting back to your diet in such a strong way! :D I think that I'll wait until after this week to start my diet back up - with Mark's birthday this week, it'll be impossible for me to start too soon. ;)

Our cats are like that with Fancy Feast. They started expecting it every single day - now they only get it on weekends.
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on July 27th, 2005 05:30 pm (UTC)
Haha! Your cats are too cute! :) Sydney's been snubbing her dry food a little more than normal recently. Hopefully it's only because she's waiting for the gravy. ;)

I'm glad to hear that Kevin's site is back. :)

Sydney knows what is delicious, right? :) But yes, I too know that from Micki who is not such a good eater - if you once started ...

I'm sorry to hear about your diet. But I'm sure that you will be able to go back to your "healthy eating" plan.

Big *hugs* to you, Sheri.
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on July 27th, 2005 05:33 pm (UTC)
Thanks, Sabine. :) I felt a HUGE weight lifted off my shoulders when I uploaded the site to its new server. WHEW! :D

That's very true, though - once you start something with these dogs, they definitely grow to expect it. Remember the applause for Sydney walking down the stairs when she was ill? ;) :D

I'm thinking I'll use the weekend that Mark is gone to start my healthy eating plan again. Hopefully I'll be able to get back on track again - I've been just horrible lately! :P

Big *HUGS* to you, Sabine! And please give one to Micki and Garry for me! :D

SADI pretty much eats the same way. Takes her sweet time. Walks away, etc. Unless the cat is sitting right there in the kitchen where her food bowl is. ;)
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on July 28th, 2005 08:33 am (UTC)
Haha! Sydney is the same way when my Mom's dog Yuki is around. I've never seen her gooble food as fast as when Yuki's trying to get some. ;)

Sheri, I feel guilty - this past week has been busy, and I haven't been able to comment in ljs the way I would like to! But I'm glad you got things sorted out with Kevin's site, and I hope you're having a good week. :)
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on July 28th, 2005 08:35 am (UTC)
Thanks Karen! :D And please don't feel guilty! :) I've just gotten back into commenting again too. I hadn't been commenting as much as I would've liked too because of my hectic schedule.

Hope you're well! And I have to say, I LOVE your icon! :D

I'm glad the site is back up!!
Leilani is like that with wet dog food (canned food), she wants it all the time! I am not sure what it is about gravy that dogs love so much hehe
ooo Vegas!! I like all the casino buildings there! there's just so much to see. and the buffets...mmmmm! :)

I hope you have a good weekend! :)

Thanks Andrea! :) I was so happy when I could finally upload Kevin's site to its new server! :D

Sydney loves canned dog food too! When she was ill (and getting better) we'd give her canned food all the time... she got so used to it that when we started giving her the dry food again, she'd snub it for a while. ;)

The buffets are SO yummy in Vegas!! Plus later this fall they'll have Avenue Q there! More incentive for me to want to go. :D
