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.

lmao! Oh man I wish I could comment about the corn dogs, but since it made it around through the grapvine, I don't want to throw my friend under the bus (the one who told me). But her DEAD giveaway was today as she got weighed in she said "My body is fluctuating so much. I don't understand, I used to be able to starve and the weight would fall right off of me." So you are admitting you starved in the past and it worked, and you are starving now but it's not working. Well she's starving part time and binging part time, my guess is it's evening out to a maintenance level. She makes my skin crawl LOL!!

Thanks so much for the goodie (umbrella) it is much needed and I certainly used it yesterday (Sunday).

I'd gone to church (and it was raining when I got there) - so I used my handy-dandy umbrella while walking into the door.

At end of service, it was raining even harder, so I blissfully walked to my car, umbrella in hand, more or less nice and dry when I got into my car.

I then drove to Wal-Mart to buy groceries for a client, umbrella still in hand. Once out of the store, a bit more problematic: it was pouring and the rain was going in at a slant, so my back and front were somewhat damp.

Got to client's house and unloaded groceries, and got wet again.

But on the positive side, I would have been SOAKED if I hadn't had the brolly (British term for umbrella).

I did bring an extra t-shirt with me, but unfortunately, not an extra pair of pants (I'll do that today, Monday, because we're expecting rain through this Wednesday).

To console myself and cheer myself up, I was able to watch Roger Federer at the French Open. He won in straight sets: 6-3, 6-3, 6-4.

Hope your Sunday was better, and the coming week is WONDERFUL!

Annie
