Dreaming in the desert ...

I share my home and life with 4-footed friends - 4 cats (Sahara, Shasta, Starkist & Shadowspawn), & 3 dogs. My 3 little dogs are smallest dogs I've ever had - Shalako the Pomeranian, Samurai the Papillon, and the newest one, Spartacus the rescued chihuahua. We've been walking about 30 minutes to 2 hours daily.

I got the lap-band surgery in Nov 06. So far, I've lost over 120 pounds (3/9/10). Recently changed my end goal to even less. (155). Sigh ...

I'm an RN ...

I'm an RN and work 12 hour night-shifts - boy, does that throw your metabolism off! I have things planned in the daytime for my days off, and have to sleep in the daytime on work days. All the tips for improving sleep say "set a routine and stick to it". Uh, huh - that'll work.

My Program:
Walking my little dogs every day. Throwing in strength exercises while I wait for the sniff breaks for them.

Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.

If man could be crossed with the cat, it would improve man but deteriorate the cat.
Mark Twain

I always like a dog so long as he isn't spelled backward.
G.K. Chesterton

I'm a reader. Can't go to the bathroom without book in my hand (even if I don't open it in the little room). Love my cats and dogs.

When you don't think the program will work, remember the motto: Try it our way for at least 6 weeks and if you are not satisfied we will gladly refund your misery

I used to watch Duke of Hazard a long time ago but can't tell you much about it either except for the two boys and their cousin I think, Daisy Duke, who always wore the EXTREMELY short shorts. And an old uncle I think. And, like you said, the car flew along with it's confederate flag painted on. But where they went or why I have no clue. Strange what I watched when I was younger!

Regarding my blog....the missing part of what happened: I clean the refrigerator often - it needs it! LOL Gourmet cooks can be messy. I thru away 2 items that where expired by at least 30 days. These were pricey $30 each. They needed these for the gourmet meal they served. Unfortunately it wasn't HIS decision to get rid of them. Of course you know who got "talked to" about this....ME.

I feel I did him a service because he was building up his angst regarding the party and needed to vent. LOL

I am here to serve. emoticon

Yep I did. When I changed it to THINFITKIND I knew it was missing something. I just changed it on Friday I think.

(And Special thanks to BARBIEE52 for the basis of this lovely comment today!! She's my comment mentor and I appreciate all her help and being able to steal her great ideas and craft them into my own!)

I took Grace and Gus (aka Ding and Dong) for a walk today and they get just panicked when other dogs bark at them. We need way more practice at it!
