Quiet Day

Tuesday, January 31, 2012      6 comments

I spent a quiet day at home - finally getting out in the late afternoon to walk the pups. I was thinking about how I'd wasted the day, then remembered the last couple of weeks when I felt so sick. Not so bad a day, after all! These quotes are fr... Read more

Healthy Thoughts

Friday, January 27, 2012      7 comments

From another forwarded Email my friend sent me. As I was lying in bed pondering the problems of the world, I rapidly realized that I don't really give a rat's hiney. It's the tortoise life for me! 1. If walking is good for your health... Read more

Solar flares have produced some beautiful views of the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) this year. Some news sources say this is the biggest series of flares in 7 years. The lights are visible much lower in latitude than usual. Some predictions... Read more

Computer Blues

Wednesday, January 25, 2012      4 comments

So, there I was - had walked the pups 2 hours (11500 steps! First time in 2 weeks I've hit 10K) Feeling good, playing online. Suddenly, no sites would open. Not SparkPeople, Yahoo, the game sites, or my Emails. Hmmm. Phone wouldn't go online, no... Read more

My Get Up and Go Has Got Up and Went

Friday, January 20, 2012      8 comments

Urgh - I called off work again last night. Had walked the dogs a very slow 2.5 miles (usually takes 1 hour, took 75 minutes). Got nauseated at the end, then the belly cramps again. I have no stamina, either. Being sick bites (I'd use another wor... Read more

Fame

Wednesday, January 18, 2012      9 comments

I'm still dragging after being ill last week. I was going to blow off the pup walk tonight, but they kept looking at me ... This song pumps up energy (just don't go jumping in the air, yelling "Fame!" as you walk on the street or work out) Oh, a... Read more

BACKFIELD IN MOTION

Tuesday, January 17, 2012      6 comments

I noticed yesterday when I pottied the pups that the fuzzies, Shalako and Samurai, had dirty butts. I tried to clean them off with tissues, and it was dried hard. Yikes, they've been sitting in my lap with those dirty butts! Off to the groomers ... Read more

More Random Thoughts While Ill

Sunday, January 15, 2012      6 comments

I think I'm about over the crud - at least, I hope so! I've been thinking about pudding - craving it. Gotta pick up some sugar free mix. Also, with the crud, I've been hungry, but getting belly cramps when I eat. Reminded me of the Pelican poem.... Read more

I've Got the Bug

Friday, January 13, 2012      9 comments

I've got the stomach bug - haven't walked the pups in a couple of days, definitely not meeting my 10K steps. I went into the Emergency Department (where I work) Wed morning... Read more
