Yes, moving all that bark was great exercise! Thanks for the reminder, sparkfriend TIRED49! I've been looking for more projects like this around the property since zumba didn't work due to arthritic knees and since walking didn't work due to sev... Read more
I think my guess of "at least 1,000 pounds" of bark in the woodshed was a gross underestimate! I toted 8 wheelbarrows full to the burn pile, and then Phil and I filled his truck bed with the stuff!... Read more
My chore today is to clean all of the bark out of the woodshed. That should be enough of a physical challenge for today! I bet there's at least 1,000 pounds of red fir bark! ... Read more

I made the decision to put Rusty down this afternoon. It was the right thing to do; I'd read a ton of advice and watched him struggle the last few days, but it was still awfully difficult. Phil was really helpful and demonstrated with his tende... Read more
I took today and tomorrow off from work to spend with my sick boy. Good decision...I wasn't getting anything done there anyway. Rusty perks up occasionally, smiles and wags. This morning on our second very short walk, he smiled, stretched, gave ... Read more

I Ate Everything!
I'm on a business trip, eat everything in my motel room, wash it down with a bottle and a half of wine, and run downstairs to eat more snacks. Bummer. The good news is that I had a great workout after the training session today, and I'm just not... Read more
A Lesson in Patience!
This week has been ultra busy. Grades were due on Monday, and I had to prepare lessons for a sub so I could go to a training conference. I've been running, getting everything done, so I could leave this afternoon at 4:30, drive 2 1/2 hours south... Read more
