Mon, 11 Jul 2016 02:04:17 EST National Pina Colada Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6197875 After last night's exhaustion, I got home, fed and pottied the critters, and fell asleep about 10A. Cracked an eye open a few times to look at the clock, wonder what on earth the pups were barking at now, but mostly slept until 10P. Too late to feed the pups again, change out of my jammie's, and walk the pups, so I broke my streaks of walking them, exercising for at least 45 minutes, and getting 10K or plus steps. Oh, well ... <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/691cc204-342...

Then, the fit hit the shan and continued throughout the dayshift. We walked back into a real mess, and it has continued all night. All of us are staggering around, rubbing our backs. I plan to get home, take a hot shower/bath, and sleep - then walk the pups after dark. I'll work in a better blog, I hope, later. <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/150f5390-6f19-4706-add0-b65b9c77...
