Not a Happy Puppy Today

Saturday, February 15, 2014


So I went searching for a picture of a sad puppy and came across the
(approximately 4 minutes of very funny dialogue) on the link below

and SAD CAT DIARY is even better (3:20)

My brief stint of shoveling yesterday earned me a sore back this morning.
Back to the drawing board.
I'm dying for ice cream to comfort me...
{...I know, I know...back away from the dark side...}
I'm grabbing for a banana instead
{'s not the same...but anyways....I'll behave...}

I took a bread quiz on and learned something new
"If you eat toast in the morning, a sandwich at lunch, and a roll with dinner, you're not just loading up on carbohydrates.
You're also eating a lot of salt.
Most Americans get too much salt.
And bread and rolls are the No. 1 source,
BEATING out chips and other junk food. "

{...and for those bragging about mild weather you are enjoying in your area...}

Remind me about how bad this winter was when I complain of heat this summer.

Drive Safe...stay warm

    Fantastic like always!!!! No more snow!!!!

I generally stay away from bread. Mostly because I believe I am allergic to gluten and partly because I love fresh baked bread too much!

Warm thoughts going your way!!!!

    The sad cat and sad dog diaries were hysterical! The writer and the narrator did great. "Like Sisyphus, I am damned to hell." Perfect.

Sorry your back is out, but, really, SHOVELING? What were you thinking?! Sigh. It's too cold for ice cream, anyway. You need something hot.

Loved your thinking of you card. Thanks for thinking of me! Our snow has melted except for some spots on the grass. Yeah! They were forcasting 80 degrees for Thursday in Charlotte, NC, but that was obviously a mistake. Now the forecast says 71 degrees. I'll take it.

    2 days at a tournament and staying at a hotel that gives you free fresh baked cookies and cupcakes does not add up to healthy anything...I'm a sad puppy/kitty too! The rest of this week will be much better, but will in no way make up for my indulgences.

    We had a few bad days, but the snow is almost all melted now. Took people hours to get home on Wednesday. I know I'll hate the summer more. There are only so many clothes you can take off! Thanks for the laughs!

    Wow, thanks for sharing that info about the salt content of bread and rolls - more than chips and other junk food - did not know that. I don't add salt to my food, but it's the hidden salt that's getting me - yikes!!!

  Hi Sheryl........
You will have to buy an ergonomic push, but don't lift. I really don't mind shoveling, but I pay for it EVERY TIME with a back that quite literally screams at me. A few nights ago, Ken and I sat down to watch the Olympics and realized after a few minutes that we were BOTH plugged in to our heating pads. I am so glad that we can still laugh, but it is still another sign (of the many we have seen lately) that we are OLD!!!
Take care of yourself. Our warm-up was short-lived and we have more snow coming tonight and LOTS more on Monday...........NO PINS for me!!!

    I smash bananas, freeze them, and puree them in food processor and they are like ice cream. Try it, you will like it!

Yep, bread sucks!

We are having horrible weather so we can still be buds. LOL.

    I hope your sore back will go away. I seem to have developed some bronchitis from hiking all those bags of pellets to their rightful place. If I still feel unwell on Mon. it is off to the Dr. I go. Today we have a late valentines party at our place and I hope I make it through the day. The turkey is roasting etc.

    What a great blog!!! Thank you for all the laughs at the expense of your sadness, but I know you will remain on the sunny side of life and that your sense of humour will see you through. Give that back some rest in case more shoveling is required because this winter ain't over yet! emoticon

    If you freeze the bananas and then run them in the blender with just enough milk to make it go, it's makes a pretty fair ice cream substitute. emoticon

    Sorry about your back - love the Voodoo doll. We had great hopes of snow this winter in Albuquerque and New Mexico - started out strong and barely bothered to tease us the rest of winter. Wish we could have adjusted the jet streams to bring a little precip here.

OMG - just watched the sad diaries. Too, too funny!

Another @#$%$%&%^*%^ foot of snow?

Retiring to Florida sounds really good!
Too bad I can't afford it.
Maybe I'll eat Ramon noodles and Mac & cheese for the next 10 years.
