Sit - Stay- Ruff!
Sunday, February 08, 2009      0 comments

I'm exhausted. Another short-staffed night (only 8 hours for me), sick people, great co workers. If there were any fairness , our butts would be smaller - we ran them off again. Got home and decided to stay up for the dog class when I couldn't g... Read more
The Night From Heck
Saturday, February 07, 2009      1 comments

Another bad night. We were short handed as one of the techs called in. Busy, busy, busy with a lot of sick people. The not so sick ones were irritated that they had to wait 6 or more hours to be seen - even when we explained we had a couple of p... Read more
Disco Walking

Busy busy night at work - worse than last night. But - we were very careful to keep the similar named people straight, and harmed none. I like to think we helped many. Anyway, got home this morning and was really tired. Reluctantly started ... Read more
Another Night, Another Dollar
Friday, February 06, 2009      0 comments

Last night was busy-busy-busy. Ran around trying to put out fires. No beds to admit to, until the night supervisor came in and miracle of miracles, we had beds. After midnight, we really settled down. Tonight is better, so far. Got home and... Read more

New Year's Resolutions? I don't got no stinking resolutions ...
Tuesday, February 03, 2009      0 comments

I gave up making formal resolutions several years ago. I always made the same vague promises to myself - lose weight, get fit. Without specifics or a plan, I never seemed to improve. Gosh, I wonder why that happened? (Duh). I had lapband surger... Read more
Lazy Day and Night Walk
Tuesday, February 03, 2009      0 comments

I think I overdid it yesterday - just lazy lazy today. I fell asleep watching TV before the evening news came on - woke up, pottied the pups, and spent the rest of the night dozing , waking, and reading. Oddly enough, I didn't want to get up, ge... Read more
Training Class
Sunday, February 01, 2009      0 comments

Had a plan today - I took the pups to the dog park for an hour walk, then to dog class. I was hoping to tire Samurai out so he'd be less crazy. It did help a little, but it really tired me and Shalako out more. Today's lesson - Come when ca... Read more

Long Slow Walk
Friday, January 30, 2009      2 comments

Good night at work - interesting cases but not too busy. Since I have to go back just before midnight, I had time to take the pups on a long walk. Took them to the dog park. Since I'm a little sore from over-doing the strength exercises yesterda... Read more
Tired Today
Thursday, January 29, 2009      0 comments

OK, trying to sleep first and get up in the afternoon yesterday wasn't such a bright idea. It was major cold for this delicate flower to be out walking the pups in 21 degree wind chill. I decided to get to bed early & get up in the afternoon to... Read more
