Critter Problems
Thursday, February 19, 2009      0 comments

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

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

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

Wind Chill

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

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

I'm exhausted. Another short-staffed night (only 8 hours for me), sick people, great co workers. If there were any fairness , our butts would be smaller - we ran them off again. Got home and decided to stay up for the dog class when I couldn't g... Read more
The Night From Heck
Saturday, February 07, 2009      1 comments

Another bad night. We were short handed as one of the techs called in. Busy, busy, busy with a lot of sick people. The not so sick ones were irritated that they had to wait 6 or more hours to be seen - even when we explained we had a couple of p... Read more
Disco Walking

Busy busy night at work - worse than last night. But - we were very careful to keep the similar named people straight, and harmed none. I like to think we helped many. Anyway, got home this morning and was really tired. Reluctantly started ... Read more
Another Night, Another Dollar
Friday, February 06, 2009      0 comments

Last night was busy-busy-busy. Ran around trying to put out fires. No beds to admit to, until the night supervisor came in and miracle of miracles, we had beds. After midnight, we really settled down. Tonight is better, so far. Got home and... Read more
