Wow. I can't believe it. I lost 2.5 pounds last week. My official weigh-in day is Mon morning - nude, having voided, pre-coffee. Since I had a secret goal of breaking 220 in Feb, I popped on the scales on Fri, 27th. I was 219. Then I lost anothe... Read more

Yea! We passed. It helped that the trainer was pretty lax. We did the loose leash walk, come when called (Samurai did the fastest come of the class), sit-stay, down-stay, and doggie push-ups (sit-down-sit repeat as fast as possible for 15 second... Read more

Good thing I don't have serious chronic illness! The modern sympathy with invalids is morbid. Illness of any kind is hardly a thing to be encouraged in others. - Wilde, Oscar I reckon being ill as one of the great pleasures of life,... Read more

Got up at O- dark hundred yesterday (Wed) morning . Got all my little tasks done, but threw up a couple more times. Tried medicating myself and sleeping it off, but got sick again in the late afternoon. Called off from work. Naturally, I felt a ... Read more

After a good start yesterday, things didn't end so well. Got home @ midnight & slept a few hours. Went to the dentist and got my crown replaced, then to IHOP for an omlette and pancakes (which weren't as high calorie/carb as I'd feared). I brou... Read more

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

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

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

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
