Sunday, March 28, 2010      3 comments

So, being on Spark People and reading The Spark gets me thinking about my improvement plan. It's not instant gratification - it takes work and time. ... Read more
Grinning Into The Wind
Friday, March 26, 2010      6 comments

Another day of high winds in Albuquerque and across the state of New Mexico. Steady winds when I was just walking the pups of 15 mph, with gusts up to 40 or 50 mph! Whew. We stayed in the neighborhood, so most of the way we were sheltered by the... Read more

I don't drink alcohol very often - but this night is setting out to make me want a drink when I get home! Staff fussing at each other, crowded Emergency Department - some ... Read more

I finished my taxes tonight in a marathon on Turbo-Tax. I HATE doing taxes - Federal and State - even tho I usually get refunds. Just something about the whole thing. I lo... Read more
I'd Lose My Head, If It Weren't Attached
Tuesday, March 23, 2010      4 comments

I wear my pedometer nearly all the time - changing it to the pants I'm wearing at the time (including my pjs). So, I got up from a nap, put on my slacks, checked the reading (3500 steps). I planned to feed the critters, then walk the pups to Pet... Read more
Songs to Walk the Pups By
Monday, March 22, 2010      4 comments

As I was dragging the pups out this evening, they were pulling their stop-and-sniff every few feet. Quite annoying. So, I sang to them: (to the tune I'm a Little Teapot) I'm a little pee-pot, short and stout. Here is my tail and here... Read more

Snow, Again!!?!!
Saturday, March 20, 2010      4 comments

I knew I should have taken a longer dog walk yesterday. Shalako must have been taking acting lessons from old "Lassie" episodes - "ow, mom, my paw's hurt!" "Oh, I'm soooo tired" yada-yada-yada. Gorgeous weather yesterday. ... Read more

Itty-Bitty Dog Fight
Wednesday, March 17, 2010      5 comments

Had to laugh today - during the dog walk, I'd called in an order to Dion's for a take-out salad. I had them put the croutons on the side, and forgot about them. While I ate my salad, the pups got into it. Took me a while to figure out what they ... Read more

Spring, Where Are You?
Monday, March 15, 2010      3 comments

This morning started out clear - by the time I was ready to walk the pups in the afternoon, there was big fluffy snow falling from the sky and immediately melting on the ground. The temp was about 45. No walks then! ... Read more
Allergies
Sunday, March 14, 2010      2 comments

So, I made it thru last night, counting down the hours until I was on vacation. I don't know if the people were more irritating because I was counting down, or if I was more irritable because my brain was half on vacation. Seriously, one guy cam... Read more
