Dreaming in the desert ...

I share my home and life with 4-footed friends - 2 cats (Starkist & Shadowspawn), & 3dogs. My little dogs are smallest dogs I''ve ever had - Shalako the Pomeranian, Samurai the Papillon, and Spartacus the rescued chihuahua (also known as "the little weasel"). We''ve been walking about 30 minutes to 2 hours daily.

I got the lap-band surgery in Nov 06. So far, I''ve lost over 120 pounds (3/9/10). Recently changed my end goal to even less. (155). Sigh ...

I''m an RN and work 12 hour night-shifts - boy, does that throw your metabolism off! I have things planned in the daytime for my days off, and have to sleep in the daytime on work days. All the tips for improving sleep say "set a routine and stick to it". Uh, huh - that''ll work.

My Program:
Walking my little dogs every day. Throwing in strength exercises while I wait for the sniff breaks for them.


Personal Information:
Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.

If man could be crossed with the cat, it would improve man but deteriorate the cat.
Mark Twain

I always like a dog so long as he isn't spelled backward.
G.K. Chesterton

I'm a reader. Can't go to the bathroom without book in my hand (even if I don't open it in the little room). Love my cats and dogs.

When you don't think the program will work, remember the motto: Try it our way for at least 6 weeks and if you are not satisfied we will gladly refund your misery

Between all of your abbreviations and starting your workweek on a different day - can you say Confusion!

That's a funny image of your pups not realizing they're getting wet just because of where they're standing. So cute. And as for raincoats on dogs, sometimes I feel embarrassed to take Joey out in the rain because all the Japanese dog owners use raincoats for their dogs but I don't. I feel like I look really selfish wearing my own raincoat while letting Joey get wet. But he refuses raincoats, too, and would apparently rather get wet, shaking off the excess water onto my shoes and lower legs. Unpleasant, but somebody's gotta take the dog for a walk, even when it rains!

I don't know if it is nationwide but to renew a drivers license in NJ you must go in person. Don't know if they allow you to do that anywhere but the DMV...which is something I am curious about because I can't fathom rich people putting up with that nonsense....and I live near a town that caters to multimillionaires. I need to investigate

emoticon Great to see your Spark Friend, emoticon SEMISWEETCHICK is the Motivator of the Day. What an honor for her.

(My son took his motorcycle to the car wash and forgot his cell phone was in the glove box and washed it. It was ruined, but he had paid for insurance so they replaced his phone. I read that 3 million phone are ruined or lost each year.)
