Dreaming in the desert ...

I share my home and life with 4-footed friends - 4 cats (Sahara, Shasta, Starkist & Shadowspawn), & 3 dogs. My 3 little dogs are smallest dogs I've ever had - Shalako the Pomeranian, Samurai the Papillon, and the newest one, Spartacus the rescued chihuahua. 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 ...

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.


Current Status:
DESERTDREAMERS is tired. Between walking 3 miles to the State Fair, 5 miles all around there, 3 back, and 1 with the pups, my feet hurt! Think I'd better take tomorrow easier

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

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

Actually a lot of the kids movies I watched with my grandkids at home LOL. I did see a couple of movies in TX with my grandkids here but don't get to see them very often since I'm not living with them now and their mom and dad are both so busy. But when I was living with them we did see LEGOLAND and also Mr. Peabody and Hermon several months ago. I remember Mr. Peabody and Herman from watching the tv show years and years ago! It was pretty much along the same lines as the old shows. Don't sneak in, show yourself proudly at the movies! You have just as much right to be there as the kids do LOL. They are for kids at heart aren't they!

That is a lot of miles by anyone's standards. It was raining when I took Cooper out for his last walk, so we went about a quarter of a block. Little stinker doesn't want to get wet!
