Day 208


Not as hot today, but, still did not get much done when I was home.
I was reading where they consider Louisiana the laziest state in America because of the depressive humid heat makes people there move slower. I can understand that. We do not have the humidity, but, when its hot I slow way down.

Day 206


Another hot day here. I'm still making jewelry and catching up watching some shows I recorded.
I watched to great shows on PBS yesterday. One was a concert of 3 Canadian women acts. Dala, Oh Suzanna and Good Lovelies. Awesome music if you like women singer/songwriters. So I went a searching on emusic and sure enough they had all three and I had 50 downloads to use. Everytime I think about non subscribing to emusic something like this comes up and I'm glad I didn't. So, new music to listen to at work on Monday.
The other show was Dr. Neal Barnhart on Reversing Diabletes. He made it sound uncomplicated. I bought his book from BOMC2 a while ago. I need to pull it down from the shelf and give it a read.

Day 204



I haven't posted very much this week. It's been a crazy time. Between my mother-in-law who is not doing so well to Sammie going completely blind has taken alot of my attention. Lil' Sam was so depressed. But he seems to have started becomming adjusted to his new situation in small ways. There is still alot of crying and barking when he gets lost and cannot maneuver where he wants to be. He is eating and drinking well, so that is a good sign.

BJ, M's daughter, was here the beginning of the week and it was a great visit. She is such a lovely woman. She was always the sweetest child and now in adulthood she is what every parent would want for their children.

I have been slowly getting back into making jewelry. The creativity comes and goes. I have alot of orders that are needing to get done. This weekend will be a perfect time to spend catching up.

Went to the doctor who has now bought my doctor's practice. The new doctor I chose, who was perfect has quit to become a businessman. I was quite dissappointed in this new doctor. Another pill pusher pushing the pill of the week. Do you think for an allergic rash I need a mood elevator drug and a stomach pill? So I'm looking for a new general practioner.

New to the DVR this week: Animal Planet's Last American Cowboy. Awesome show! Hard life. Gene Simmons Family Jewels is back for another season.

I watched a very interesting National Geographic special called The Real Slumdogs. This weekend I am going to watch the movie Slumdog Millionare. We are officially hooked on Deadwood. What a great series. We been renting the series through Netflix. And I found out today Dexter, season 4 is being released in August. Awesome!

Day 197


My friend, MJ, is getting me hooked on a new way of eating. You must eat every 2 hours and not longer than every 3 hours. 3 meals, 3 snacks and 6 to 8 glasses of water per day. You must pair up a carbohydrate with a protein. It is suppose to give you more energy and make you lose weight. I'm for that!!
So happy it is Friday. Looking forward to this weekend. Michael is off tomorrow for a change. We are going for pedicures and then do some geocaching up north of town. The weather is going to be scumptious too.
And there is always house chores, laundry and jewelry making to keep me busy. Movies for the weekend are Inglorious Bastards and 2 discs of Deadwood.
I hope everyone has a great weekend too!!

Day 192


I always wonder when I see this painting is the girl on the ledge waiving at the encroaching city telling them to come on or is she telling the city to stay where its at and not gobble away more land.
I am still not feeling very well. I should feel alot better than this. Sure did not get done all the things I had planned this weekend. I will be calling the doctor's office tomorrow.
Carol and Roger are here from California. We had a nice visit with them. They will be returing to the golden state tomorrow.

Day 189


Had my second cardioversion today. It was a success, but, such a long day. I'm praying this time it will stick.
I'm taking a four day weekend to relax and recooperate.

Day 188


First day it is really going to feel like summer. They are predicting close to 90 degrees. I am hoping today will be a better day than yesterday in alot of ways.
We need to start getting this house ready to sell. Clearing out all the unneeded items, fix what needs fixing and paint what needs painting. What sounded like a good idea at the time is now becomming a money pit and a burden.
Tomorrow is my second cardioversion. I hope this time it sticks. It is scheduled for first thing in the morning.

Day 186


Is this July? The weather was cool and windy. We went out geocaching and by the time we were driving home it was raining.
But because our BBQ is on the deck under cover we bbq'd the short ribs and had a nice dinner with the folks.

Day 185


Spokane has a serial garage arsonist. Why in Hell are they not reporting about this.
The arsonist was pretty active last year and seemed to have gone away. But he's back. 2 more garages torched. One just a few blocks from where I live.
He's active in the early morning hours. So policemen put the paperwork down and drive around and see if you can find him.

Day 182


Today is my boss' retirement party. This will be so hard to accept that she is really retiring and won't be there anymore. I am truly heartbroken and terrified of the future. I feel just like this picture.

Sammie is having a hard morning too after getting 9 teeth pulled yesterday.
