Long Day: Fun was had, calories were sacrificed.
Sunday, July 22, 2012      19 comments

Sorry I wasn't around at all yesterday but I had a very full, and very wonderful, day. It started by leaving the house at 7 am. We went for breakfast (healthy omelet at a local restaurant). We were on the road by 8:30. We were going ... Read more

I spoke to the vet yesterday and Tazzy is cleared to walk. She doesn’t have any swelling and the wounds are closed. Vet said to finish the antibiotics and then she is ready to go. We will be able to walk, with vet permission, Sunday morning. ... Read more

Time is up and I am done with this pity party. Yes, grief is normal and natural. Yes, I'm hurting. But good gods woman - enough is enough. I'm sitting here this am reading my responses to yesterday's blog. I'm posting sad faces to my gr... Read more
Good walk today with Ramblings.

I got two walks in today. It's not perfect but I'm trying to get my groove back. It's not back yet but soon I think. It took less pushing to get out the door tonight. I had a real "Ah Ha" moment walking today. I was doing the route I no... Read more
Pledge of Self-Allegiance
Tuesday, July 17, 2012      17 comments

I read this on a friends blog and thought it was fabulous. It is very on target and something we should all at least think about, if not do. With her gracious permission I have joined her in this pledge to myself and thus to those around me. ... Read more
Even Peacocks Molt.
Monday, July 16, 2012      16 comments

I received a message this morning from a wonderful and wise friend. Even peacocks molt. Molting is just something a bird has to deal with. It is irritating and itchy and usually occurs when things are good. The bird becomes grouchy and u... Read more
Indiana Dunes helped clear my mind.

Well, hubby gave me a rare treat today. We got up early and headed out to the Dunes. After breakfast, he decided he didn't want to hike. He wanted to sit in the woods and meditate. Just relax. So I should go by myself. REALLY?!? He made m... Read more
Why I'm where I'm at right now.

Those of you who know me know if I miss a day of blogging it’s for one of two reasons – I’m swamped or depressed. Sorry to say yesterday was because of the latter. I don’t know how coherent this is going to be. I will try, but bear with me. ... Read more

Walked - alone.
Tuesday, July 10, 2012      20 comments

Well, I got two walks in today - both by myself. Normally I have two walking buddies at work. One forgot her tennis shoes (she wasn't going to walk in heels) and the other got in late because of a doctor's appointment. I was walking at work o... Read more
Tazzy is side-lined
Monday, July 09, 2012      27 comments

Well, I've lost my walking buddy for a week. The fuzzy personal trainer is on R&R for the next 4 to 5 days per vet's orders. It is a pretty deep puncture but no signs of tearing or infection. The muscle is inflamed so they want her taking it ... Read more
Dog attack - a battle of conscience.
Sunday, July 08, 2012      41 comments

I had to do something today that is really causing me some distress (that's not the right word, but I can't come up with it). Tazzy and I have lengthened our walk by starting closer to Lake Michigan. Our route takes us through the neighbor... Read more
Able to do things I couldn't before!
Saturday, July 07, 2012      17 comments

I had to take the girls to get weighed this morning (need to order meds that are based on weight). My big girl (Gypsy) is down over 20 lbs - huge deal on a big dog. Tazzy is down from her heaviest but put on .5 lb since March. I'm guessing mu... Read more
Hard to Strut when your are Melting!

Today was my last day off of work. Hubby had to work so I was REALLY looking forward to getting outside today. I got up late so we got ready to head out at about 11. It was warm, but not too bad. Or so I thought. By the time we hit the trai... Read more
It started as a day off.
Thursday, July 05, 2012      9 comments

I always take vacation on July 5th. Our neighborhood becomes a DMZ on July 4th and my dogs keep me up all night long. So we got up a bit late today. I planned a real "day off". We went to see Spiderman with the boy child - ... Read more
