  • I like the idea of the "meet and greet" with the vet. I did that at the kennels. Left them there for an hour and then went back and got them. They like the dogs to get the idea that they know you're gonna come back. I imagine if Josie just meets the vet and doesnt have anything dramatic happen she might be quite happy with another visit when necessary.

      Thanks. I've heard about DAP - maybe I'd better do some research...

        • Quick update.

          People spend a LOT of money playing BINGO!!!
          A LOT!! Like between $40 - $100 each.

          It's also either crazy busy or insanely boring working at a bingo.
          The last time I worked at one was at least 10 years ago. Its changed, there's more electronic stuff. One good change is its smoke free now.

          I stopped at a grocery store before I went. I bought a pint of blueberries and some raw macadamia nuts.

          I ate all the blueberries and a couple handfuls of nuts, BUT I did NOT eat anything from the snack bar

          • Good for you! I went bowling the other night for the first time in long time. I was impressed with the electronic score keeper. My daughter laughed at me and told me I live in a bubble...

              • 30 DONN
                Day 9

                Food

                L – an avocado and two hard boiled eggs chopped up with lemon juice and almond oil, small left over chicken drumstick, 2 oz of macadamia nuts, about 3oz of coconut milk
                D – spaghetti meat sauce over fried zucchini, with a spoonful of coconut oil, a few pistachios, Tazo Chai with coconut milk

                Avoid Poisons & Stupid Mistakes
                Successfully avoided!
                I even avoided talking myself out of skipping my run!

                Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint
                C25K – week 2, run 2
                I did two 10 second sprints during this

                Sleep, Sun, Play, and Use Your Brain
                Home from Bingo at 12, bed at 1am, up at 6:30am! Not much sleep
                I got ready fast and raided the fridge for a quick lunch and packed my running gear.
                I had a supply teaching job an hour away, classes started at 8:45, but I like to be at the school hour earlier.
                Usually I need that time. Especially in a new school.

                The teacher had left about a hour of work for each class. Classes are 75 minutes long…

                After work (Ha! That sounds so strange, and so rare…) I drove to the city with the indoor track. (I was teaching in a town just past it) Before I went to the track, I stopped at a sports store to try on track pants…Somehow I’ve lost mine…I’ve been using a pair of yoga pants.

                Here’s my track pant problem. I’m short. 5’ ” . Regular women’s track pants are way TOO long! My “lost” pair are actually an ADIDAS boys XL. Perfect length. Anyway – I tried on the ONLY boys pair this store had, but the style had tight calves. YUCK! And I wasn’t paying $45 for something I didn’t like.

                I decided I’d just have to use the yoga pants. Then I realized that I only had knee high black dress socks with me. My yoga pants have slits up to mid calf. I was gonna look BEAUTIFUL running. I decided to go anyway. In the parking lot, I broke my thumb nail down low and jagged and SOMEONE had taken my nail clippers out of my purse!! Grrrrr. I almost aborted the run. I HATE jagged nails. Luckily, even though I’m presently alcohol free, I hadn’t taken the corkscrew out of my purse. (Yes, I carry a corkscrew…) Anyway, it has a really sharp foil knife. So there I was, sitting in my Beetle outside of the arena, trimming my nail (my RIGHT nail) with a corkscrew foil knife…

                (I just realized that there is also an extremely sharp jack knife in there as well - I'd forgotten about it)

                I ran week 2 of the C25K program, looking weird.

                Home for supper that my Farmer had made

                I’m gonna try to catch up on some MDA journals, and then someone (probably me) will have to drive 25 minutes to the train station to pick up University Son at 10 pm. He’s coming home for the weekend.


                Hey, does anyone know where TAWFUNGUY is???

                • Hey W'n'C, I'm sure you didn't look that weird. Besides it's only those annoying Lorna Jane ads that make us feel like we should be all prettied up to exercise. One of the reasons I do it at home is so I can wear my oldest cut-up tracks and paint splattered t-shirts. I've never seen the point in specialised gym wear. Mind you I'd probably change my tune if I worked out in public.

                  Btw, Tawfunguy is on a road trip atm. He's also working on getting his flight certification again so has been studying hard for that. That's why he's MIA a little around here.

                    Nice . A girl's gotta have her important tools handy... I hate jagged nails too.

                    Good job on the run (and the day's work too!). A good end to a good week for you

                      Thanks, but compared to the 'pretty girl' running, yeah, I did.
                      Thanks for the TAWFUNGUY update.

                      There's been a couple of times when I've had to buy a corkscrew, and one time when I used a nail and a power drill!
                      Its easier to just keep one with me

                      Thanks. Yeah, I guess it was a good week

                        • Some Rastafarian Religion info our Rastaman tour guide told us:

                          They are vegan. "If it grows above the ground we eat it raw, if it comes from below the ground, we cook it"
                          and "If you see a Rastaman coming out of McDonalds, he's NOT a Rastaman"
                          They can't view the dead. If they do, they need to do penance, which includes shaving off their dreadlocks.
                          No blood transfusions, amputations, etc.
                          They do EVERYTHING for their wife during her period. She's not to do anything. No cooking, laundry, caring for children...
                          They "smoke" for their communion, and they sip on a "herb" tea. Our guide had his in a water bottle.

                          Bob Marley info:
                          His mother was 18, his father was a 50 year old English captain.
                          He died from cancer because he refused an amputation.

                          We were told to have an "open mind" while we were on the tour..

                          In the store we bought $1 candles to light in the Mausoleum

                          Captain Crazy was our tour guide. He was a Rastaman.
                          "We don't drink and drive, we smoke and fly!" followed by his crazy laugh.

                          K, I gotta go shovel some snow...

                          • Snow shoveled.



                            Notice how the snow in the yard is higher than the deck...

                            Saturday, 5pm.
                            Normally time for a glass of wine while I make supper and stare out the window at the falling snow...

                            No wine in the house to tempt me.

                            I'm not sure what to have instead...

                            Coconut water?

                            But there's that lovely bottle of Jamaican Rum Cream in the fridge...Argggg

                              I think.

                              I had a coconut water in a wine glass.

                              Nope.

                              I'm now having a Chai with coconut milk.

                              It's better...

                              • 30 DONN
                                Day 10

                                Food

                                L – 2 egg western, mushrooms, onions, and pimentos, cooked in bacon fat. A few pistachios.
                                5pm – coconut water, a few pistachios, a few almonds, a few macadamia nuts…a Chai with coconut milk
                                D – Texas Longhorn roast beef, baked acorn squash, carrots, cauliflower, a small bowl of frozen berries and a kiwi. There was butter on the squash and the cauliflower.

                                Avoid Poisons & Stupid Mistakes
                                So far, so good.
                                But I really wanted a glass of wine while I was making supper…
                                Instead I poured some coconut water in a wine glass, and ate some nuts.
                                That didn’t quite do it, so I had a Chai with coconut milk.

                                Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint
                                Almost a rest day, but then I shoveled the deck.

                                Sleep, Sun, Play, and Use Your Brain
                                Bed at 12, (even when I’m dead tired, I can’t seem to go to bed early) up at 10.
                                Cleaned my kitchen.
                                Surf MDA, laundry, dishes…
                                I lead such a boring life.

                                Uploaded some photos to Flickr.

                                Got some groceries. I hate buying cereal and cookies.
                                I split a small 6 oz box of blueberries with my daughter on the way home from the grocery store. I’ve had better.

                                University Son might have to go back early tomorrow, so we had a Texas Longhorn roast beef dinner tonight.

                                Shoveled the deck. I’ll have to do it again.
                                It’s snowing like crazy out. Tons more than what fell on the “blizzard” day…


                                Lily and a stick she somehow found in all the snow.
