pretty busy week at work. 3 down, 3 to go.....

Hope you all have been doing ok and are enjoying the New Year ! I'm hoping we go camping next week when we're off.

34 outside and clear. Yay !

Cowboy ~ stray dog ~ is doing well. I just love him..... so sweet and gentle :0

Night all ~

It is so nice that you are taking care of a stray dog and I love the name "Cowboy." That is awesome. Hope you have a great time camping!

Hi Gail !

Morning friends

Yes, cowboy is a sweetie. :0 He's so cute, needs a bath BAD. lol !

Woke up feeling much better mentally today ~ slept much better so that's probably it. Beautiful day outside. 47 and super sunny. Would have been a lovely day to be off, but off to work I go..

Cooking sausage/cabbage right now. Have yogurt at work..
Will finish my coffee and make myself finish getting ready. Snuggled with blankie checking in on you all and pretending I'm off.

Have a great day !

I am jealous of your 47 degrees and sunny weather. We are in a snowstorm over here...third day in a row, although it's starting to slow down now. My toes won't warm up lol. I love the name cowboy too. Like a little plains roamer that finally found you

Cowboy! One of our horses goes by that name. Good name for the little trooper that picked you for his pack. I wish I could see him. After that bath, can you take some pics?

I agree with GG. It's well below zero wind chill today and I have to work. I'm assuming the horses will be inside but the manager doesn't like to keep them confined too long. They might be out. I won't know until I get there, but if they are out, they're going in.

Have a great day at work. I'm glad you got to catch up on your sleep by ducking into your son's room. It's hard when you're both on different shifts. Are you always on different shifts? Now that I'm thinking of it, it's usually a rule that a husband and wife duo can't work the same shift in the same department. That's how it's been in hospitals I've worked in, anyway.

morning !

Yes, Cowboy has stolen our hearts He's just too gentle and sweet !

I have some pics ( he's pretty scruffy ) but when it's warmer and we can bathe him, I'll post before and after pics. lol !

Can't wait to be off. 2 more shifts..... pretty good day yesterday. I just feel really tired. I guess all the holidays and company on last days off made it where I don't feel rested.

64 degrees right now, saying it might get into 20's by tomorrow night ! That's Texas weather for ya !

have a great Saturday friends !

I saw on FB yesterday that you wrote "What a beautiful day!" I wanted to say something cause it was the opposite of beautiful here but I didn't want to rain on your parade. Wasn't that thoughtful of me? I'm glad you had a fabulous day.

I would be seriously drained after having company and the holidays and then right back to work, too. You definitely need real "down time" to make nursing work. I think that's what ruined it for me; having a husband with severe disabilities. I was always on duty.

I hope the rest of your days on are kinder and gentler so you can coast on into your next stretch of days off. Where do you plan on going camping? I laugh as I say "camping" knowing the lap of luxury you'll experience as you camp.

I hadn't envisioned Cowboy being scruffy. He must have really been neglected where he lived before, being tied out the way he was. Good for him for breaking away and finding you! When his coat grows in and he's healthy as well as happy, he's going to be a beauty. You can post pics when that happens. No hurry and no worries.

*sigh* 64 sounds Heavenly. Enjoy it for both of us! God bless TX.

Thanks Cheryl. I plan to .

Was taking a nice long HOT shower and decided I will make a broccoli/cheese soup .... easy peasy and we haven't had that in SOOOO long ! Sounds yummy

Will just throw roast ,onions,mushrooms, beef broth in pressure cooker and that will be super simple too Save chili for tomorrow.

DH didn't feel good at work last night, still sleeping now. Hope he feels better, we planned to take off maybe Wed for a few days. We'll see.

Cowboy isn't here so much last few days. Have bed in garage and big bowl of food. DH thinks he is going home and coming here to play with Allie. ;/ Not sure. Allie sure stinks !! She has been playing with him and rubbing against him ~~ washing our sheets and she is getting a bath today !!! Yuck ! ;0

be back later.......

I'm glad he's feeling well enough to still allow you guys to go camping. I didn't realize Cowboy was coming and going. Sounds like he's a "lone wolf" type. Sorry he's making Allie stink! All your meals sound so yummy. Tis the season for soup, for sure.

It's brittle cold out here and I have to go do my last day of work out in that. I will be dressed to the hilt, including my ski mask. Again, the paddocks are going to only get the scantest of going over.

Have a great day!

Sounds good! You guys work so hard, its wonderful that you can have enough time off to do something. Glad DH is feeling better.
Cowboy... maybe put a collar on him with a message & phone # ??? See where he's going? It may be he has a few homes that he is enjoying their hospitality!
Both my kids have Golden labs... both have neighbors that feed & walk them! Can't put 'em on a diet!

Good idea Deb, still haven't seen him

Feeling blah today, really tired and cold all day ~ heat was on and wearing sweats.... don't feel sick, just prob a little run down. didn't buy groceries and still haven't made chili. I will here in a bit.

We will decide in the morning where and when we are going camping. Watching lots of TV and took a little nap. Boards are super quiet !

Raining lightly right now. Back is really stiff and sore, will go for quick adjustment this morning and see if it loosens up. DH found a nice RV resort at New Braunfels that will be nice ! 2 hot tubs and heated pool We love that area too, lots to see and do !

Having coffee and chilling right now. bbl !

Stil drizzling outside, decided we will go tomorrow for 3 nights. Can't

Going to make some "zoodles" and jalapeno poppers later... have plenty of meats already cooked. Easy day

I New Braunfels. That's my old stomping grounds. I lived in Cibolo/Marion, between New Braunfels and San Antonio. Two hot tubs and a heated pool? Sounds Heavenly! Don't forget, young lady. You wanted it to get cold. Enjoy it while it lasts.

I'm glad the adjustment did the trick.

lol ! Hot tub is for my back silly ! But, it is supposed to be like 60 tomorrow and 70's for a few days after that . I think I'm the only one I know that enjoys cold weather. Everyone else complains. ;/


i love that area too ! We decided to leave in the morning, since it's rainy and would get dark pretty soon after we got there today.

Well, what a day........

Rained all morning and all the way here.
Park says it's a "resort" , but it's really wall to wall with workers and snowbirds who LIVE here ~ at least that's what it looks like ~ they are all visiting and seem to know each other. Can hear the freeway from inside the camper and cars going by constantly ! No view ~

DH feels bad, he picked it out online ~ I wish he would cancel the next 2 nights and we could head off somewhere else. But, I don't want him to feel worse than he does now.

If we stay here, will take Allie and go to a park or something to fill the day. Don't even want to sit outside here ;/

Eating lots of crap today..... was craving really bad last 2 days and I gave in. ;(

Going to get a hot shower now, DH and Allie are taking naps lol ! I have been sleepy all day too, guess it's the weather... muggy and 68.

Oh that SUCKS. I don't think cancelling and finding a better place is the worst decision you can make. I think he'd feel worse if you stay! Shake the dust off your feet as you drive out of sight. Just caulk it up to experience and go enjoy the rest of your time off.

Woke up to coffee maker not working That's an emergency in my book !

DH tried and tried to get it to work ( it's new ~ only used last 2 times we went camping ) and he went to Walmart and got us a Bunn like we have at home.

Called office , no refunds So we are staying here and making the best of it ! Sun is coming out now and we will take Allie and piddle around

Hope you all have a great day ! Back on track food wise
