Boomer update and Opensky Deal**

Thank you all for Boomer’s well wishes.  We were both nervous parents last night.  She was so loopy from the medicine and just wasn’t herself.  She had to be knocked out which worried Mike like crazy.  She’s 11 years old and not a spring chicken.  I got home from work and could tell Mike had …

Guest post: Boomer

My eats for the day: I start my day off with a vienna sausage.  I love when I hear the sound of the garlic press.  Mom doesn’t know that I know she crushes a pill up in  my sausage.  It tastes so good though I don’t mind. . Then it’s off to eat my food.  …

I’M ON A BOAT

Have I mentioned I LOVE 4th of July weekends?  Dang, I have to go back to work on Tuesday.  I guess a 16 month weekend is coming to an end. Can you see Boomer?  She was excited…until we actually got on the pontoon. Ahhh….how relaxing.  Then I remembered my body hasn’t seen sun since my …

Changing it up

I love having a change in my meal plan.  I admit I get a little anxious about it sometimes.  It’s nice knowing I CAN live without yogurt and cottage cheese but i’m happy to eat them again.  I love cottage cheese, yogurt I can do without and may replace it with a coffee toffee twisted …

Cabin Fever be gone

Good Morning!  I wanted to just lay in bed but I got my butt up.  I took a complete rest day yesterday despite walking to the Redbox with Mike and Boomer to rent Saw VI.  I found a free code on http://www.freesnatcher.com/ .  We just saw the fifth one Friday so now we are all caught …

DOG DOWN!

OMG…I just had the scare of my life.  Boomer and I were playing “toy” and she ran into the kitchen to pounce on it like normal.  One of her old lady legs slipped and she went flip flopping all over the place.  She just sat there and looked back at me like um…what just happened.  …

X marks the spot and possible diagnosis?

Good thing Boomer has long legs.  The poor girl spent 20 minutes trying to find a place to poop this morning.  She is smart, she uses the tracks she’s already made to get back to the deck. . The doctor’s office has been trying to get ahold of me to make an appointment.  I’ve missed …

Picture this but with snow and ice everywhere 🙂  Those of you that live in warm states don’t know what you are missing.  Snow walking is a GREAT exercise…can you sense the sarcasm here?  No, it really is.  Boomer bit it a couple of times and it makes me laugh.  She looks back at me …

Snow days and good eating!

My mom had given me a bag of cole slaw mix and I just had to use it.  I know they say cabbage gives you gas and I don’t need that but I made it anyway.  Wow this was so good!  I fried the cabbage with broccoli until it got a little toasty and then put …

Verdict is in…Opinions?

First off, rest day was a success!  This morning I slept until 645a and didn’t really want to get on the treadmill.  I did and went 4 miles in 40 minutes.  I normally do walk/runs but jogged the whole time and ran a few minutes.  It felt great!  I guess I needed the rest.  Next up …
