  1. Road Map/To-Do List for the Day - March 3, 2011

    by , 03-03-2011 at 06:43 PM
    Oops, totally forgot to post this morning!! I had to run the puppies to the county first thing, then stop and pick up some meds for the finches. Then, my oil light came on, so I had to go to the mechanic to check it, since I just got it changed. While there, I got a call from my vet wanting me to pick up some other kind of meds, so I drove back and got those. Stopped at my EQUINE vet to pick up donkey meds, the feed store to pick up more bird food, and Raley's to pick up food for me!!

    Off to court early this morning, and that will be at least half my day. Then I am driving down south about an hour to pick up two little terrier puppies that are being brought up to our shelter from a high-kill shelter in the Fresno area. I can't pick them up until late this afternoon, so it will be evening by the time I return. Don't expect to get much done on the list today, but I'll try to get through as much as I can!

    Another day of appointments, I have to be in Sacramento for a 10:00 am interview. I am going to try to get out of here early enough to drop Crash off for day care and a bath, and still shoot for being at the office by 9:00 am, so I can walk to the court house (where the meeting is) and get some exercise! That should last a couple of hours, then walk back, get my travel voucher turned in, a few admin things, check my email, then back home (picking up Crash on the way) to meet my avian vet, who is ...

  4. Road Map/To-Do List for Today - February 28, 2011

    by , 02-28-2011 at 10:25 AM
    My day is bracketed by medical appointments: I have an eye exam at 10:30a and a dental at 2:00p. My hope is to get all the animals fed before the former, then to get to the gym and make all my calls before the latter. I am having a filling re-done, so nothing major, but I will want to come home afterward, at which time I will hopefully have some time to do some reading, beading, etc before everyone wants to be fed again!

  5. A week on the ranch (February 21 - February 27, 2011)

    by , 02-28-2011 at 10:11 AM
    I have been thinking a lot about vision this week.

    I went to the doctor, mid-week, for an eye exam. It has been two years since I last had my eyes examined, and I suspected I needed reading glasses, so I decided it was time to get a full medical exam and proceed from there. The last time I had my eyes checked, the nurse performed a vision exam and noted that I had lost a little of my peripheral vision on my right side. She wasn't concerned, and she put it down to just age, as my eyesight ...
