Icky-poo
Wednesday, June 03, 2009      0 comments

I called in sick this morning for tonight's shift. Every time I tried to eat or drink anything, I'd get cramps, abdominal pain & back pain, and puke about an hour later. About 1000, I decided I'd go ahead and walk the pups, slowly. I'd not eaten... Read more
The day started well, but went downhill
Wednesday, June 03, 2009      0 comments

I got up @ 0330 this morning. Got a lot of stuff done, including walking the pups before 1000. Knocked out 5K steps, and the quickfire challenge by noon. Tried to nap in the afternoon but was awakened a couple of times by the guy that's going to... Read more

Last night, my cat Shasta sat on my open laptop. I had been using the laptop, got really sleepy, and put it to the side without turning it off. I kinda chuckled sleepily to see her all nestled up on it ... Read more
Sunday Musings
Sunday, May 31, 2009      0 comments

There I was, thinking I was looking OK (from the neck up, I don't have full length mirrors), and then I saw the picture of myself. Over time, I think I've lost a thousand p... Read more
ZENN

These are not my dogs, but Shalako and Samurai have tussled like this a few times. Walked the dogs past a car dealership this morning. They have ZENN cars - Zero Emission N... Read more
Munchies
Friday, May 29, 2009      2 comments

For some reason, while I was driving home from work, I got the munchies. Now, this is only a 10 minute drive. I knew I had a Nutrisystem chocolate dessert bar in my bag. At a traffic light, I dug blindly into my tote bag. Came up with a blueberr... Read more
Famous Quotes That Aren't Right
Thursday, May 28, 2009      2 comments

I was watching a TV show the other night about famous TV lines ("Missed it by THAT much" One of them was Ricky on the I Love Lucy show - the most quoted line from that show is "Loosie, you got some splainin to do!" He actually never said that. ... Read more
Late Memorial Day Holiday
Wednesday, May 27, 2009      1 comments

Since I'm off Mondays, my holiday for pay will be tonight. Weird. I'll wear my flag scrub top, earrings and socks. Got up at 0400 so I could get the dishes washed, get groceries, amd make the fruit salad. Cheated this time - found a frozen... Read more
Routine Checkup
Tuesday, May 26, 2009      2 comments

One good thing about being a veteran is the health care. I just got a six month checkup. My labs were good, blood pressure OK, no real problems. She was very impressed with my weigh loss of 30 pounds since mid-December. I told her about Spark P... Read more
Adding Strength Training
Monday, May 25, 2009      1 comments

I decided to use the SP strength training planning program. Picked M-W-Sat for my 3 days to work out. Clicked it today, and WOW! A little more than I thought it would be, but not killer. I warmed up by biking on my stationary bike for 15 minutes... Read more
In the Jungle...
Sunday, May 24, 2009      2 comments

I took the pups to their dog class today . We walked about 2.5 miles to get there, so Samurai would be less hyper. I always try this, and it does work to some extent, but it tires me & Shalako out more than it does Samurai. They both passed thei... Read more
Another Rainy Day, but Goals Met
Sunday, May 24, 2009      3 comments

Wow, we seem to have storm clouds and fronts moved in. Good, we need it - we were 3 inches of rain behind our average for the year. Little fluffy dogs don't do well in the rain, wet streets or puddles. Not that Samurai cares- he just doesn't lik... Read more
Bad Planning
Friday, May 22, 2009      3 comments

I was tired this morning, and it was raining, so I deliberately planned to sleep earlier than usual and get up at 1630 (4:30P) to walk the pups and do my video workout. Best laid plans and all that ... Got to sleep fine, but had a package deliv... Read more
Things we don't hear much in the Emergency Department
Friday, May 22, 2009      5 comments

I'd refreshed my "natural red hair" yesterday morning, and used a creamy conditioner on it. When I went to work, it kept slipping out of the barrette. I commented to one of the other nurses that it was "too clean". She replied, "that's something... Read more
We do more before sunrise ...
Wednesday, May 20, 2009      3 comments

than most people do all day. That used to be the US Army motto. Way before "Army of one" - which I never understood. Anyway, it's kinda cheating if you work nights. Of course I do more before sunrise - my "yesterday" is amost over, and my new ... Read more
