The Rain Washed Away My Plans
Thursday, September 23, 2010      8 comments

I knew a rain system was moving in - they'd talked about it on the news yesterday. There was so much rain, the officials closed the State fair today! Jiminy Crickets. That's a lot of rain. I'd had one of my "can't sleep all night" frustrations l... Read more

New TV Season

Wow, it's finally here - not that I was waiting with bated* breath or anything. I haven't been paying lot of attention to it, just seeing the previews. I caught the last half of "The Event" when I finished walking the pups - hmm - confusing - m... Read more

I Don't Do Sports
Sunday, September 19, 2010      4 comments

Even as a girl, I didn't do sports. Couldn't run, catch or throw. Turned out, I was really near-sighted in my right eye. So much so, that even today, people can quietly come up from behind me on the right side, and I won't notice them at first b... Read more
In Like Lambs, Out Like Lions!
Saturday, September 18, 2010      9 comments

I took the pups in to get groomed today. Both were sadly overdue for baths and trims - everytime I'd think about bathing them in the sink, I'd think about taking them to the groomers - then I'd did neither for 3 months. Shalako looked like a flu... Read more

Dinner and Massage
Tuesday, September 14, 2010      5 comments

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

It's not that I'm being so awful - just that I can't seem to get back to the gym. Last week, I had an excuse - sick on my days off, and I never go when I'm working. So, I've ... Read more

I decided to go to the State Fair today and see the Creative Arts things today (sewing & other soft goods, baking, etc), and wander around the demo building (Shazam towels, cookwear, etc). I know I'm going again next Sunday, but with a group, an... Read more

Night Shift Blues
Friday, September 10, 2010      4 comments

Night shift ... night crawlers ... children of the night ... graveyard shift ... third shift. Whatever you call us - we work opposite of most people. I'm awake (or supposed to be) while you're asleep. That means I'm supposed to be asleep when yo... Read more

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
