Day 8: Walking Down the Street

leave a comment »

Instead of my customary walk around the ‘hood, this morning I rushed over to my friend’s place, where I’ll be puppy sitting until Monday, and took out all 3 dogs for a walk.  As soon as we crossed the street, doggie #1, did his business.  I discovered that we were short on doggie bags, and turned around to get more bags from the house.  That’s when doggie #2 decided to take his turn.

If you’re keeping score: 1 bag + 2 stops = A short walk

With only 1 dog left, I thought I’d be safe grabbing 2 bags.  I was wrong.  After doggie #3 went, doggie #1 decided he needed to go again.

Updated score: 3 dogs + 4 bags = Walking down the street and back again

The Bangles: Walking Down Your Street



Know that the best therapy is?  Going to the hairdresser, having a great conversation, and getting a great new ‘do.

I walk in feeling frumpy and leave feeling brand new.

Seriously the best place:


Sleep Study

The sleep study was weird but not as bad as I thought it would be.  They try to make you feel as comfortable as possible but you definitely know you’re there for testing.

My technician was nice and friendly, and just happened to grow up about 20 minutes from where I did.  Small world.

After my sleep study his comment was that I was a restless sleeper.  At some point in the middle of the night, he came in and turned a fan on.  I have no idea why, and I’m not sure if I want to know why.


Here’s a list of books that I’ve read and really enjoyed (in no particular order):

After I Do by Vicky Gemmell

The Fire Watcher by Chip Hill

Ferris’ Bluff by Fred Limber

The Test by Patricia Gussin

The List by J.A. Konrath

A Cold Day for Murder by Dana Stabenow

The Girl In The Italian Bakery by Kenneth Tingle

Sleeping Roses by RaShelle Workman

Irrefutable by Dale Roberts

Death by a Honeybee

Death by Drowning

Death by Bridle

By Abigail Keam

Dark River Road by Virginia Brown

212 by Alafair Burke

Deadly Stillwater by Roger Stilljes

The Killing Room by John Manning

Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire

Simon Said by Sarah Shaber

Dark Bayou by Nancy K. Duplechain

I’ve also started to like books by Barbara Freethy and Barbara Samuel.  The books remind me of Danielle Steel books, in that you know what you’re going to get but they’re enjoyable, easy to read, and a great way to escape for a few hours.
