The juniper pollen count is up. The city of Albuquerque posts a pollen count every day - over 100 is considered bad. Juniper was 800 today. I took my claritin (generic) this morning, but I think it's surrendered. Just finished a 45 minute walk w... Read more
Dog Class Disappointment
Sunday, February 22, 2009      1 comments

Took a couple of hours nap after working last night - got up and harnessed the pups, then I started puking. Dogs are looking at me with big eyes, "when we going?" I called Petsmart and told them I couldn't make it. Very disappointing. I'll try ... Read more
Mark Twain Quotes

Humor is the great thing, the saving thing. The minute it crops up, all our irritations and resentments slip away and a sunny spirit takes their place. Do something every day that you don't want to do; this is the golden rule for acquiring... Read more
Reminder: I love my job

This nonsense has to stop. Running all night again last night, no beds to admit to, and patients needing admission. Family members and patients all upset. Sigh. Better tonight, so far. It's almost 2100 (9P) and I have 11575 steps on my ped... Read more

Another night from Heck. Hit the ground running, staff shortages, patients backed up in the waiting room and ticked off, patients in the rooms waiting for admit beds and ticked off. Oh, joy. I usually say one of my daily gratitudes is my job - s... Read more
Critter Problems

This morning, a couple of stray cats came over and had a hissing contest with my cats that were out in the outside cage. Much hissing, yowling, and thumps. I actually went out to check out the noise with my cell phone in hand to call 911 if nece... Read more

A co-worker friend & I went out to lunch today before class - we ate at a sushi restaurant. I used tips from the SparkPeople site to try and make good choices. Then we had a 4 hour continuing ed class this afternoon - managing emergent airways. ... Read more
Walkies

I've been working with the pups off & on today - reinforcing the come, sit, sit stay, down, down stay, and crawl. Each if them has his/her strengths and problems. Samurai gets involved in checking out the world, and doesn't come as consistently... Read more
Dog Tricks

We had a nice long walk before dog class, then we did a lot of walking in the class. Today they learned "Sit to greet", shake, and "sneak". Sit to greet is where they have to be in a sit before someone greets them, and either they get petted or... Read more

Tired this morning when I got home after a hard night. My pedometer read about 11000 steps before midnight, and about 7500 by the time I got home. I usually walk the pups before I go to sleep when I get off work - I was Soooo tired, I just fed e... Read more
Walking to CCR

My MP3 player was up to Creedence Clearwater Revival. As I walked the pups this morning, it started slow, so I warmed up to it, then hit a string of faster tunes to keep me at a fast pace. The last 5 minutes were slower again. What great timing... Read more

I wear buttons on my name tag at work. Change them up occasionally. Here are some of them: Our National Health Care Plan - don't get sick. The lunatics are in charge of the asylum. There are more of us than you think. No whin... Read more

Another lazy day. Really thought about blowing off the dog walk, but their little faces got me again. It snowed very early this morning, and off and on through the day. No build up here in the Duke City, too warm to stick. By the time the dogs g... Read more
Furr's Cafeteria Feast or Frolic
Monday, February 09, 2009      0 comments

Slept yesterday from about 6p until midnight. I was exhausticated. Let the pups out & back in, then slept more (off & on) until 0630. Had my massage this morning - forgot we'd changed it to 10 from 1030. Oops! Afterward, I went to Furr's C... Read more
