Questioning whether little me (all of 5' almost 2" tall) can handle three dogs whose combined weight is significantly more than my weight is common. People ask me all the time how I can handle that much dog on a walk. Simple (grinning). I'm the ALPHA, and they all know it only too well. Although they each know they are loved and I tend to spoil them with kindness, I can also be stern and demanding of them.

(I know that's not what you meant, but I get it a lot and it fit with my ING word.)

Picturing you with your two calm dogs and a huge puppy! Great Pyrenees are supposed to be very sweet, but boy, do they get big. Also, they're not hypoallergenic--had to laugh when I read that. Funny word to use for a dog.

Opening my browser to SparkPeople is less frequent these days. I'm currently house-sitting/pet-sitting for a 6-month old Great Pyrenees puppy. If you don't know the breed, at 6 months, he's the size of a Golden Retriever or a Labrador! Real sweetie pie.

Making plans for Shenandoah is fun. My daughter and I will be there for a week. My daughter's boyfriend and his two daughters will join us the first two days. I'm excited!

Loving the little bit of the fall color we've been getting. My husband says that Shenandoah hasn't been as dry as it has been here, so they may have more color for longer. We tend to have color here and there instead of spectacular color all at once. Fall is my favorite time of year and here, in the Charlotte area fall lasts a long time.

Judging for the trees around here, you may just miss most of the autumn color. The dogwoods are starting to turn already, even with the hot weather we've been having lately. I was thinking you'd still have more color. Of course, my weather man says it's not a matter of temperature, but rather, a matter of light. We'll just have to cross our fingers and toes and hope that there are no big wind storms or heavy rains to take down all the leaves.

Hoping you have wonderful fall color and the weather is perfect for hiking! Hmmm, partial kitchen . . . should be fine for lots of yummy fruits and veggies, though.

Going to Massanutten Resort! The condo we're getting has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a partial kitchen. Not sure what partial means, though I think it doesn't have a full stove, just a hot plate. My daughter in DC is single, though she does have a serious boyfriend who has two daughters. He & the girls will join us on the weekend, though they'll not be there during the week. A nice balance. :D

Finding Massanutten Resort on Google was a snap. Don't know if you're staying there, but their site had some beautiful pictures of the area. Their condos sleep 8, so you could even invite your daughter and her family to stay with you. Lucky you, what a treat!

Enjoying reviewing my Shenandoah photos from May, 2013, while I consider my visit this coming October. It will be near the end of the month. My boss gave me a week's time share at a condo in Massanutten... lucky me!

Doubting that you'll have any problems finding fall color. When we lived in northern New Jersey we were usually good through the end of October. I can't remember when you said you'd be there other than that it was in October. Sometimes it's cold and stormy and the wind brings down the leaves, so if we have nice weather in October, you should see wonderful foliage.

Buying a new phone meant I had to type in all my contacts again because my old phone was so old it wouldn't download the backup program! Ha! My husband pointed out that I could use the contact list from our email account. I don't think so. There are hundreds of useless contacts in there, plus, most of those contacts just list the name and email address.

Yearning to take "y" off the list because there are very few "y" verbs to begin with and even fewer appropriate ones!

Arranging your commute around flood zones would be extremely frustrating! Lucky you don't have to do that. Oh, that and the idea of losing electricity during the summer in the heat also doesn't appeal to me, either.

Watching the rain come in was so uplifting! Fortunately, I live in the center of the metropolis, and we typically have no flooding issues. I'm just happy we actually participated in all the rainfall, as it sometimes hits the edge of the city and misses us entirely.

Thank you for inquiring -- I'm fine, no flooding, no commuting issues to work.

Transcending labels and delving into personal values here. I'm pro-choice, which definitely puts me outside the conservative label. Then again, I believe in the right to carry arms. I also believe that prayer in school or anywhere else should be okay. I can't seem to agree with either Democrats or Republicans. I find both parties seriously lacking. I think America should be a democracy and not a socialist state. And if we must have universal healthcare why would we ever let the insurance companies be in charge (I refer to them to the mafia, since we pay them protection monies) and have it policed by the IRS? Seriously? That's insane. Oops, already there.

Promising myself to be better about answering these. I always seem to get stuck on p-ing words. I wonder if words ending with "ly" would be any easier.

I used to be a liberal. I'm becoming a conservative liberal. My family would be distraught by this news. I've come to despise political correctness and I'm beginning to wonder if America should stop trying to be everyone's friend and return to bullying everyone again. Oh, and when did we start making guilty criminals, victims and assuming that only white people can be racist? Hmm, apparently I'm ranting, I'll stop now.

Opening my mind to understand viewpoints different than my own is sometimes challenging. I tend to be very open-minded and quite liberal and find it difficult to understand some of the very "conservative" ideas being bantered around. However, I do try to understand we all see our world from different eyes.

Looking at the clock and realizing it's much too late for political discussions, still I find I'm surrounded by people who know for certain what's wrong with the government, when I can't see absolutes. Has the government ever been so polarized? Instead of sitting down and finding solutions, everyone would rather point out who's wrong. What if no one is right? What if there is no one answer, just a series of compromises? What if politics were set aside? See, I have more questions than answers.

Keeping the news on has become such a habit for me. However, I actually prefer music and to ignore all the political nonsense. It amazes me, for example, the Republican Congress has voted to sue our President for delaying provisions of the Health Care Reform that they voted to oppose over 30 times. Completely illogical.

Jigsawing means using a jigsaw, when what I really want to say would be jigsaw puzzling. Not sure if that's right, either. Hmm, well anyway, I've become addicted to doing jigsaw puzzles on my Nook (e-reader). I know it's a total waste of time, but I can play with jigsaw puzzles when I watch the news or any TV show where they suddenly decide to show blood and gore.

Having just come out of drought conditions this year, you have my sympathy! People got so good at conserving water in Charlotte, the water company had to raise their rates in order to make enough profit! Our water company here in Monroe didn't do that, thank goodness.

Generating an answer to your Phoenix rain question: we typically have some wet weather in late July, August, and maybe September. It's called our Summer Monsoon. We also have winter rains, usually in January or February. So we have rain in both Summer & Winter, though not much. However, this year, we are so far behind our normal rainfall we are in a drought. I hear next year will be an El Nino year, so hopefully, we'll have more rain.

Being in pain is no fun! I got the pain in my shoulders to go away, but can't make my lower back stop going into spasm. For my shoulder (it's mostly my right shoulder) I finally put the heating pad on it for 10 minutes, then a bag of frozen peas for 10 minutes--doing that twice in a row. I just wish it would work for my lower back. My chiropractor says I should get a massage, as well. I've never had one. I hate being touched by strangers. It's difficult enough just to go to the chiropractor or the doctor.

Waiting for the firm's receptionist to return so I can take my lunch break! Tummy is starting to rumble. She doesn't usually leave the office, so I didn't plan for a later than normal lunch break. Ah well. :D

Venturing into my husband's nightly domain--the study. I had my laptop set up on the kitchen table. I decided putting on my desk in the study would be better. I'm not sure how my husband feels about sharing the space with me, but I do have my own desk. I have a desktop computer but It has a XP operating system. My laptop has always problems with the video drivers and we can't seem to fix it. It's getting worse and I'm afraid one day it will just decide not to work at all. I miss having the computer in the kitchen. It made tracking nutrition easier. There is a desktop counter, but it's too high for me to sit at comfortably and it kills my back and shoulders. Sure is nice to have the kitchen table back!

Using the fitness tracker for small bits of exercise still works. :D Sometimes I just enter my dumbbell exercises singly and call them at 3 minutes each, i.e., 2 sets of 12 biceps curls = 3 minutes.

Trying to get my back better, still. I like the chiropractor very much. This is just going to take time. I'm hoping to be able to start walking on the treadmill again. I've been doing some strength training--things that don't aggravate my back. I really should put that in my fitness tracker. It's just that I break it up throughout the day, so it's hard to track the time.

Sitting is hard on my back, or so says *my* Chiropractor! He recommended I obtain an adjustable desk, so I can stand or sit to work. Of course, I'd have to wait until my foot is back to 100%.

Good luck with your chiropractor visit.

Resting hasn't helped my back at all, so I'm on my way to the chiropractor this afternoon. I'm a little nervous. This doctor was recommended by a friend. I haven't been to a chiropractor since we moved here in December 2007. I was really hoping my back would get better on its own. Oh, well.

Questioning why you don't get a letter about your tall bushes? You might be right about the rest of the landscaping looking great, so they leave you alone. :D

Proving that you and I are on the same wavelength! How I wish I could get rid of those bushes, but my husband likes them. I can't understand it. I think it's his rebellion. Not against me, but against our very strict neighborhood. They send letters if your grass gets too high or if you don't trim your bushes. He seems to love that they cover the back steps. Worse, I find this humorous. We have yet to get a letter telling us to trim those bushes. Maybe it's because all the other landscaping looks okay? The bushes do give us privacy on our deck, but summer is too hot to be out on the deck anyway, so what's the point to that?

Opening my eyes to which plants I want and which I don't! I think you should tear out those bushes at your back steps and replace them with something you're not allergic to!

Nothing better than perennials that need little maintenance! We've got these bushes on either side of our back steps that I hate, though. I don't know what they are. They bloom, little white flowers that I'm allergic to. If you don't cut them, they don't grow too big. Wish we'd know that before we cut them. They have to be trimmed every month in the summer to look nice. My husband trims them once a year. I can't trim them. They're just too big. I'd like them to be cut down!

Making the right plant choices in a desert environment can be challenging! I have potted herbs in the back yard and a few small flowerbeds in front, which receive heat-tolerant perennials.

Looking for more rain now, but it's not happening. I hope we're not going back into drought. Since you don't get rain in the summer, that means you have to water your gardens. So what do you plant? I plant herbs in containers. Perennials are planted in the big gardens. I have a little garden under the front window with marigolds and begonias this year.

Knowing which flowers like the summer heat and which don't is key to keeping a pretty garden. I'm putting in some thai basil this weekend, to replace the pansies.

Judging by the way I feel right now, I'm hoping I won't get sore after spending a couple of hours gardening. It used to hurt my knees to kneel, but since I started Sparking my knees are so much better. I hated pulling up my beautiful pansies, but they won't survive the heat.

Finding the right orthotics and shoes is difficult! My chiropractor did a pretty good job, but my knee was bothering me. Now I'm okay, but dreading summer. What will my new orthodics be like in the hot and humid weather? At least I know I can go back to my pedorthist and get an adjustment if I need to.

And, yes, I enjoy our conversations, too.

Enjoying our conversation, as I learn new words! I looked up pedorthist, as I'd never encountered the word before. Orthotics are wonderful! I have a pair from my chiropractor. They do make a difference. (They didn't fit in those darned high heels I wore, though.)

Deciding to make an appointment with the pedorthist at my local family shoe store made a big difference for me. I really do understand how the joints can bruise. I've had foot problems for years. Having custom made inserts for athletic shoes made a huge difference. The pedorthist at the shoe store did a better job than the podiatrist!

Chatting with my doc, I told him it came on gradually. It wasn't actually the toe that is bruised, but the joint where the toe connects to the foot.

Achieving boot-free walking should take place the middle of next week. I somehow inflamed the joint where my big toe connects to the foot. It was swollen & bruised. The swelling & bruising is gone; however it still feels uncomfortable when I walk without the boot. Therefore, he said, wear it another week then try.

Viewing the list of what I've eaten over the day and the previous week and checking the nutritional info helps keep me balanced. I didn't track on Easter simply because I didn't weigh and measure everything. As usual, I ate really healthy food in a mindful manner. It's the next day that I fall apart. Oh, well. This time I'm limiting it to just the one day! Maybe.

Noticing the changing weather patterns, too. I'm just wondering what the summer will be like. We had a wet Spring last year, that helped keep the ground moist and Summer cooler. But if there are fewer tropical storms and drought to the west of us, I'm not sure what the weather will be. I'm hoping it doesn't push us back into drought conditions.

Looking out my window at the beautiful day. The trees are really starting to green up. In fact, we're having pollen alerts for the week--tree pollen. It's supposed to be 80 degrees today, but dropping into the 60's for most of the week. I'm sure your weather is warmer. Did you get more rain or are drought conditions worsening?

Joining the land of the living again today--I've been so sick. I feel okay this morning and I'm hoping it lasts. I want to be able to get some kind of exercise!

Tracking really does help. I've lost weight from being sick, but I'm not sure that it'll be permanent. One can only hope!

Hoping it goes well for you! I had a bad night last night and slept until 9:30, failing to get out of bed at 8:00. At least I got 6 hours of sleep. But overall, I'm doing better. I'm getting to bed at 10:30. I set this time limit because I want to be able to get up earlier in the morning and function! I just have to keep working at it.

Tracking really does make a huge difference, doesn't it?

Creating personalized methods to improve your fitness is what SparkPeople is all about. I love your 14-day challenges. I might just have to join that theory. :D

Beginning to feel motivated again with these silly mini streaks. It's nice not to have to commit to something for forever. I can try different strategies and decide what works best. That two week time period is just enough time to push myself. I know Spark has 10 day Challenges, but I don't use social media.

Anticipating positive results from keeping on track with SparkPeople motivates many to plug ahead one day at a time.

Yauping (wail in self-pity) because there are so few ing words that begin with Y! I read an article that said that maybe they were wrong about saturated fats. Oh, boy, this could get interesting. Perhaps, it's just a matter of all things in moderation? I do like the Spark articles. They cover a wide range of topics in a clear, concise, and specific manner.

Waking up to the value of healthy fats vs. unhealthy fats is made easier with SparkPeople. :D

Vilifying fat isn't my intention, but I'm not thrilled with greasy food. I know that fats are essential to good health. Here's to nuts!
