Dinner and Massage

Started out the day by ending last night at 0100 or so. Had my alarm set for 0700. Urgh - dragged myself up and took a quick wake-up shower, then took the pups to the Vet. Shalako was due for her rabies, but Samurai did a ride-along. There's a n... Read more
Trying to Get back on Track
Monday, September 13, 2010      6 comments

The Advantages of Being Sick
Wednesday, September 08, 2010      5 comments

Trying to put a positive spin on the last few days - I have lost a couple of pounds. When you're outputting more than you put in, that happens. Hope it's not just water weight. Haven't made most of my minimums for the nutrition tracker for the l... Read more
Urg, I Hate Being Sick
Tuesday, September 07, 2010      1 comments

Thought I was getting better, but had a relapse today. Stayed in bed most of the day, and walked over to the Walgreens this afternoon and got over-the-counter anti-nausea & a... Read more
