I'm Alive!

I have survived! To be honest, I wasn't sure if I would. Yesterday was pretty bad for me. I was afraid to eat anything yesterday, but I felt like I should so that Little Major wouldn't suffer. My back was killing me, I didn't get much sleep, and all I succeeded at doing was making a HUGE mess in the living room -- blankets, heating pad, chapstick, water cup, magazines, laptop -- all strewn all over the place!

I still felt pretty terrible last night, and I hadn't eaten any real food (crackers and chicken broth don't count in my book), so I crashed on the basement couch and decided to stay home again today.

I woke up this morning feeling like a new person. What a relief! I even ate a real breakfast today!

But, I know I wouldn't have recovered as quickly if I didn't have my sweet Colonel to rub my back last night or my 2 buddies to keep me company today...




And the normal ONE perk that you sometimes get out of being sick - losing weight - is not so welcome at this point in my life. I'm sure that the 1.5 pounds I lost yesterday will come back quickly to me next week as I make the rounds of my favorite California restaurants.

Hi "Sally",
You don't really know me, but I am a friend of your sister. I think I probably met you when Jana and I were in high school, but I wouldn't expect you to remember because I don't honestly remember when or where. Anyways, I just wanted to say that I love your blog. I found it via Amy's blog, first, and then realized who you were...So, I am introducing myself, officially, so I don't feel dumb for commenting on your blog in the future. I love that you update your blog so often. Congrats on little Major.

SCHNAUZERS!!!!!!

I love my mini, but she's kinda big for a mini. (She's 21 pounds).

I just think schnauzer are some of the cutest dogs ever, and they don't shed. Neal told me B had schnauzers but I forgot. :)

Rachel O - Rerun, the one in the top picture, isn't exactly mini either...he's 25-29 pounds! Lucy is 18 pounds. Their dad was all white and about 30 pounds! I've always had schnauzers, and I LOVE them!
