Slow night so far. Usual mix of patients, plus just a few with sniffles, cough, etc worried about the flu. Two possible cases in New Mexico today, not verified yet. Not near here (yet). Everyone at work is washing and rewashing hands more often,... Read more

Got a lot of stuff done last night, slept all day again. Got up in time to take the pups down the Long Leash on Life - wholistic pet foods, toys, and gadgets. It's where I get their Primal food - based on BARF (bones and real food). They love it... Read more

Didn't gain or lose any weight this week. Boo. Fell yesterday walking the pups (never walk on gravel roads without paying attention to the potholes). Not hurt bad, just aches here and there (which are worse today than yesterday, but still not b... Read more
Heeling VS Loose Leash

Took the pups to dog class today. They actually walked over on the coupler. Using the twitch to keep Samurai's attention really helps - he doesn't lunge forward so much, and Shalako doesn't lag as much. Today's lessons were on heeling with... Read more

Man, I was tired this morning when I got off. It was a really good night last night, but my legs still ached from the previous 2. Fell asleep when I was online at home. Slept, woke up, slept, woke up ... finally got up at 1800 (6P). Mostly beca... Read more

Whew - the bad nights seem to be over. The nurse I didn't want to work with, hereafter referred to as Character Nurse, or CN, worked the first few hours of thei night with me. I use "worked" loosely. CN was there, but kept dumping the work onto ... Read more

My usual coworker buddy is off on vacation. A nurse we work with frequently was scheduled to work with me tonight, but she got pulled to another area. I'm going to have to work with a real character tonight (and I don't mean that in a good way).... Read more

Came back to work tonight and it's the night from Heck. Sick, sick patients, no where to admit them to, everybody is anxious, antsy, and snappy. I need another vacation!!! Before that, I slept in the daytime, got up at 1600, walked the pups... Read more

Took the pups on a walk this evening. Swung by Petsmart to get them some water and to pick up new treats for them (either they're finding and eating them, or I keep losing them, or... Read more

The day started so well. Had a massage this morning, ummm. I'd only had a couple of hours sleep before-hand, so I tried to nap when I got home. Didn't happen. Oh, well. Beautiful day outside. Changed to shorts & tank top and took the pups for a ... Read more

Walked the pups over to Petsmart today for class. The other 2 owners didn't show up, so we had a private class. Practiced making right hand turns while they stayed close to me. Trainer says go straight, then tell them "faster!" as you make a rig... Read more
Fruit Salad
Saturday, April 18, 2009      2 comments

I don't know why I buy fresh fruits and veggies and leave them in the fridge so long. When I go out to eat, I love a mixed green salad, bowl of fruit salad, and side dishes of veggies. I think part of it is living alone - whatever I make, I'll h... Read more

Today was "take your pets to the vet day". 3 of the 4 cats were due for shots and annuals (Starkist had his in Jan). Tried to catch Shadowspawn this morning. Real dramedy. Chased him into the bedroom and got the door closed. The king-sized bed f... Read more

So I had my third dental appointment for this week. Got my temp crowns off, a second small filling done, and the permanant crowns placed. Since she was drilling, the dentist let me have nitrous again. Woo-hoo! Partied in my head for almost 2 ho... Read more
