I really did go to bed early last night. As soon as the Voice went off, I went to bed, and woke up at 2am.
This is the way it goes.
So maybe I will lay back down soon. Hoping the sleepiness comes back around.
I finally got some walking in this week, Sunday for about 40 mins and Monday for an hour.
The foot was really bothering me Monday night, I had switched back to my older shoes and put my ortho inserts in them.
My walk went well, no pain, til the end, then I felt some sharpness in the foot.
Just hoping its from lack of walking and not anything to worry about.
I sure do hope the weather improves soon for more walking days.
Yesterday I was exhausted, I dont know why, I spent the whole day in the salon chair.
Then picked up a few items at the store, came home, ate some Subway and didnt do another thing til bedtime.
Here I sit, shopping online for some type of doggie play pen.
My puppy is so mean and wild and tears everything in the house up, her favorite seems to be shoelace ends and almost anything plastic.
Fly swats. Paper of any kind, but especially paper towels. The living room is NEVER clean, no matter how much I pick up, she drags something back out.

And her new favorite thing is jumping up on the couch. And crawling up on my chest and just standing there.
I hate leaving her in the crate for so long when I go anywhere, yesterday she was in there for at least 5 hours.
But if I dont, she will have the house destroyed before I get home, I have baby gates up to keep her from going anywhere but the living room and kitchen.
But I am thinking the doggie play pen will allow her a little more freedom to move around while not being so confined in her crate.
Now the problem is, finding a place in the house to set it up.
We are currently under a winter storm warning.
So far I havent seen any. and sure hope that I dont.
Yesterday was a kind of an off day for me, I ate a butterfinger in the car driving home from the beauty shop.
I guess that will teach me to skip breakfast, especially when I know I am going to be unable to eat for several hours.
It was 3pm before I had a chance to eat anything, and so you see, I went straight for the junk.
Then I bought a sub at Subway, came home and ate that, then I had a skinney cow ice cream and several glasses of milk.
That was the extent of my nutrition yesterday.
No veggies!!!!
Bad day.
But my hair looks pretty good.

    I have had the same problem with puppies we have raised over the past 30 years. It is a pain!! I found out what to do though and thought i would pass it along to you. Have at least 4 toys that the puppy is allowed to play with. Everytime the pup gets something they are not supposed to have, take it away, pop them on the nose ( not to hurt, just to startle) , tell them NO and then give them what they are supposed to chew on. It will take a few weeks, but it works. :) I have a chihuahua that is almost 3 months old and he is going through the training. A puppy playpen is an awesome idea!!
    My baby is so little, he is in a clear rubbermaid container with his bed , food and a puppy pad ( big container lol). Oh, a helpful hint... never ever ever let pups bite on your hands and don't let people wave their hands in front of the pups mouth to play. They can wave toys, but not hands. This way, no one will ever get bitten by accident ;) Good luck with the pup and your hair looks great!!

    Your hair looks great!

    I haven't really heard of a doggy play pen. Is there one room you could block with a gate and empty of anything chewable but dog toys? How long are puppy's that playful?

    I got my dog from the shelter when she was 7 months, and I do remember crating her when she was alone.

    Your hair looks fantastic. Good luck with the puppy. I believe in exercise. A worn out dog is less likely to destroy things. Of course, it's hard to wear out a puppy. I hope the play pen works!!
