The very END of JULY 2015!

Got up at 8:00. It was already warm.

Helped hubby made eggs.

Took dogs for walk in park along Gun Shooting Road.

Then brought dogs back. to house.

Went down to eat breakfast at Grey Goose. Ran into Burt Willis there and talked to him.

Came back and got Bud for his 11:00 nail trim.

Got Anbesol for me at Lil Town Market. Picked up a latte for hubby (they had been closed this morning when we went by the building).

Then came back to house again. Had a snack. Then hubby took me to Deralee's at 2:00 to get my nails done. I had a couple Mike's hard liquor drinks.

Came back to house again and took naps until 6:00PM. Fed deer.

Found a Garter fish swimming around in the fish tank. Hubby cut down all the vines around the tank so the snake cannot climb them.

The Jeep hits 9000 miles.

A Near Perfect 86% in A&P



Got up this morning and started studying.

Dressed for school and put on makeup. My contacts are still not working, so I will have to go to Eye Doctor again.

My new teeth are bothersome. Will have to go back on Monday to get them fixed.

Left the airconditioner on a timer for the dogs today. Supposed to be a high of 90 degrees.

Drove to school at 9:00; stopped at Jitterz in Rathdrum to get a latte.

At school, I studied some more.

I got a 86% on my A&P Chapter 5-8 test!

Drove home. Was very tired.

Ate some of my pita. Then I took a nap.

Hubby came home at 7:00. Brought apples & grain for the deer.

Hubby said his dad had gone into the hospital earlier this week for congestive heart failure. He is back home now.

He had dinner. Watched TV on the couch. Deer came about 8:30.

I did my homework for A&P.

Wednesday, July 29, 2015



Hubby got up at 6:00. I actually slept last night after taking TWO painkillers.

Hubby left for work. Lil Bit stayed in bed with me. I fell back to sleep. Was going to get up at 7:00, but slept until 7:30. Wish I could stay home today.

I dressed, did my hair, put in my teeth.

It is cold out today, only 60 degrees when I get up.

I packed a blanket to take to school today in case I am cold.

Stopped to get yogurt & Anbesol at Stein's. The yogurt we could not find is called Zoi.

Then I got a latte at Jitterz.

Got to school at 8:45.

I did REALLY crappy and missed 5 out of 20. That is not normally like me. I thought I had done really well on the test. Must be the drugs.

Found out what everybody's birthday was.

Done at 12:45PM.

I went down to get a Pita. Saw Mark down there.

Left and drove home. Picked up mail.

Unloaded car from all my stuff I took in; then I took a nap.

Monday, July 27, 2015



Got up at 6:00 this morning. Petted Lil Bit on his belly.

Dressed and started laundry. Took blankets & pillows. Hubby drove me to Spokane for Implant Surgery.

Left home at 7AM; stopped at Dagny's in the Valley to pick up latte for hubby.

Got to Dentist at 7:45AM. Hubby stopped at Taco place to get a burrito for breakfast. I got a rotten iced coffee. Instead of drinking that, he took me to Starbucks and got a hot latte for me. We had to wait to go into the office. Parked by the school and watched the Seagulls in the baseball field.

I got in to the Dentist promptly at 8:15. They did impressions, then mocked up the dentures.

I had to run out to the car to get my old dentures. Hubby was NOT in the waiting area, he had wandered outside to make a phone call to CDA Metals.

To waste time, we went over to Albertson's to go potty, I had to poop. Then we looked at magazines and wine.

We came back at 9:30 to get the Implants done. The Dentist applied LOTS of novacaine. Then he drilled holes into the bone. Placed the implants. Then added the Screw heads. The Assistant was very dumb. He had to reprimand her several times. She almost drowned me with the water she was spraying. She gave the Dentist the wrong implant heads. The Dentist had another visiting Dentist go get the experienced assistant so that they could find the correct screw heads. Dentist said "This is not Rocket Science!" I started laughing.

After getting both uppers and lowers done, then doing impressions again for the implants onto the mocked up dentures, I was free to go. It was about Noon.

I was in a lot of pain. We drove to Walmart to shop. I stopped to get Frozen Peas to apply as ice to my face. Then we took my prescriptions to the Pharmacy. We got there at 1:00 and by 1:15, I had my painkillers and took a couple. Some older lady that was sitting at the Pharmacy was concerned that I was tired from shopping when I sat down next to her. I explained that I had just had dental surgery and was waiting to get painkillers. Hubby and I checked out with a nice older lady that was obsessed with putting our groceries in order & then packing them into the cart.

We sat in the parking lot at Walmart watching women take their dogs to potty in the field next to Lowe's. Hubby had some cheese & deli meat for a snack.

He drove me to Dagny's to get an iced latte so that I could apply the ice directly to the implants. At first, it gave me brain-freeze. But then after a while, it started to feel good.

We went back to the Dentist and drove around the parking lot. Gave bread to the Seagulls that were hanging out.

Finally went back into the Dentist office at 3:30 to get my dentures. The bottoms fit, but the uppers were crooked. The dentist suggested that I come back at 8:00 tomorrow morning to get more impressions, then pick them up again tomorrow afternoon. What a pain.

We left with the crooked dentures still in my mouth. They hurt.

Drove to Rathdrum and got burgers at McDonalds for the dogs. Then stopped at Stein's and I ran inside for my Almond milk.

Drove to Spirit Lake to get gasoline.

Drove home and unloaded groceries. I took another pain killer and drank some Kahlua & Cream to kill the pain.

Printed out Pathology notecards.


Kicked hubby out of the bed first thing. He was snoring.

Got up and was not feeling well at all. Did not get any sleep last night.  I was taking painkillers all night and putting ice packs on my face. I had to pee every hour. The pain was worst on my lower left jaw.

Hubby called in to work so that he could take me to the dentist again.

We left at 7:00. Picked up breakfast sandwiches at McDonald's. I ate a tiny little piece. Then got lattes at Jitterz.

Drove to Dentist and got there right on time. I got in a few minutes after 8AM. They did more impressions. Then told me to come back at 11:30.

We drove up to Harbor Freight so hubby could get some parts. We back promptly at 11:30. Then I waited FOREVER to see the Dentist. They finally called me in around 12:30. The nurse told me that I did not tell the front desk girl, Becky that I was there. I told her that I DID tell Becky that I had arrived, but that she had been on the phone. She had told me to sit down!

Dentist did even MORE impressions with a mocked-up wax part of the denture. Then they told me to come back at 3:30 for the final. I was so tired & upset with the painkillers.

Hubby drove over to Horizon Bank to deposit money so that he could order stuff on Paypal.

He picked up parts at Central 4WD. Then we drove to Denver Mattress company to check out the couches. We slept on a couple for quite a while. It was comfortable, airconditioned, quiet.

Hubby wanted donuts, so we had to go over to Krispy Kreme and pick up some for him. The place was CROWDED with tours! We had to wait for filled Raspberry donuts for him.

Finally left there and drove to Walgreens to pick me up a heating pad.

Then we went back to the dentist parking lot to wait. I finally realized that it was 3:00! We could go pet the kitties at the Kitten Adoption Center. So we went over there. We saw a black cat, Olé , that could fetch a ball. He kept doing that over, and over. It was cute. Wish we could get him.

Finally went over to the dentist, got in right away. My teeth were ready. They looked bulky & heavy, but they fit. The backs rock and I told this to the nurse right away, but she said that I have to give them a few days and get used to them.

I got notes to excuse me from school from Becky at the front desk.

Then we left. Hubby wanted a pizza, so we picked up an Angus Steak & Roasted Garlic Flat Bread Gourmet pizza at Papa Murphy's Take & Bake.

Hubby drove home. Unloaded everything. Fed ham to the dogs.

I did laundry, put away dishes. Took a hot bath. Watched the stars with hubby. Took more painkillers.

Watched Archer until time to go to bed at 10:30.

sunday and no rain


I can't believe that it is almost the end of July. 1/2 the summer is already over and we have done nothing!

Got up at 8:30. I had gotten up at 3:30 in the night and could not fall back to sleep for about an hour. Had vicious nightmares all night long. Hubby made eggs for the dogs.

I cleaned the house. Filed receipts & paperwork. Did more notecard homework for Pathology.

Hubby watched car shows on TV from 9:00 to 12:00.

Washed Ben's bedding because it stank so bad.

Then we took the dogs for a walk in the park from 12:30-1:45. Walked on the far side of the park past the wedding day-use area.

Came back to town and hubby went to Lil Town Market to get milk while I waited in the truck with the dogs. An old man pulled into the parking lot with an old truck and a HUGE black poodle.

We came home, fed the deer. Made lunch. I had the rest of my Pita. Hubby had one of his pre-made Burritos.

Hubby called and made reservations at Ainsworth Hot Springs for our anniversary.

I spent most of the afternoon cleaning the house. Vacuuming, Washing the floors, Cleaning the sinks, Cleaning the dog food bowl, Cleaning windows, Cleaning the sinks, Cleaning the dog door.

Hubby put duct-tape on the dog food bowl where it was falling apart.

We washed the dogs on the back deck around 5:00.

He watched tv most of the day.

Then Alicia & Cliff came to visit around 7:00. We talked with them for quite a while.

I sat down to do Medical Terminology paperwork at 8:00.

Saturday, July 25, 2015



It rained in the night. I got up to the sweet smell of rain outside. The deck was soaking wet. Yippee!

I am so deadly tired and exhausted anymore. I wake up sweating, clammy, and headachy. My joints ache.

Lil Bit slept with us all night long. Hubby got up at 7AM and made breakfast for dogs. I slept until 7:45AM.

Then we got dressed and took the dogs to the park for a walk. The Fire Camp is all gone. They left it very neat & clean.

We also drove around Bayview and out Cape Horn Road to see all the devastation from the Fire.

Then we drove Perimeter Road around the Park and came back to Athol. Hubby had to stop and get a latte.

Came home and people were already turning around in our driveway looking for the stupid Garage Sale across the street. I hate stupid people. And WHY do they think they can turn all the way around in a u-turn in our big driveway. I hate stupid people. It is a PRIVATE DRIVEWAY, FUCKWADS!

I told the hubby that we need to get our NO TRESPASSING, PRIVATE DRIVEWAY, and TRESPASSERS WILL BE SHOT signs up again!

Worked on homework for the next 3 hours.

It rained at 1:00PM.

At 3PM, Ben and I went down to get the mail. I rode my bike and Ben ran beside me. Hubby was not there. He & Mark drove in with the Tan dually a few minutes later. It started raining lightly.

Hubby came home and we took all the dogs with us to the dump with the house garbage.

Then we came back and I did MORE homework. I got done about 4:30PM.

We watched The Cowboys on TV.

It really started raining a lot around 4:30-5:00. We lost the satellite channel for a while.

Pathology Quiz & Planks


Another day closer to my demise. Whoopie!

Got up at 6:30. Hubby had already gotten up at 6:00. Lil Bit had come up at 4AM to get into bed with us. I am already tired when I get out of bed. My arms were going numb in the night. Probably too many Ibuprofen and sleeping pills slowing down my heart, not pumping enough circulation.

Dressed and then came downstairs to get ham slices to dogs. Sat with hubby on the couch watching the morning local news. Then we did dog hugs and hubby left. He briefly came back down the drive because he forgot his cell phone. I went outside to water the plants.

We have a real mole problem. Already had to cut down one of the expensive evergreen trees because moles ate the roots and it died.

I came inside and studied for Chapter 9 quiz and Chapter 10 pop quiz.

Made green tea. Got my books loaded. Drove to school.

We were dismissed early at 12:45.

I drove to Deralee's to get my nails done. I incorrectly thought I was supposed to be there at 1:30, but I was actually supposed to be there at 2:00. Hannah was there. Some skinny guy in a weird outfit kept running by the place in 95 degree weather. We were watching him. Deralee was going to call for a welfare check, but he finally went back to his camper behind KKJ's.

Got done with my nails and I drove home to dogs.

Did homework.

Started not feeling good. Took a nap on the bed. Was coughing and achy all over. Very stressed & tense.

Tuesday, July 21, 2015



Got up and studied some more. It just seems to go in one eyeball & other the other. Into the brain and then out again. I cannot retain the I/O and Actions of muscles. It is irritating.

I do so well on the Quizzes, then the Tests over a whole chapter bring me down...

Hubby left for work at 7AM. We did dog huggies before he left.

Then I studied some more. My back was hurting.

I drove to school and took Ramsey because they are still working on Clagstone.

Half way there, I realized that I had forgotten my cell phone. What a pain. My whole life is in there. Schedules, Music, Communication.

Got to school and studied some more.

Took a couple breaks, then left at 1:00.
I drove to CDA and washed the Jeep, then drove to my Facial appointment. I sat there for 30 minutes rather than go shopping. People on the roads are just insane the way they drive. I was so upset & frustrated.

Jill had me come back and did the Facial with Microdermabrasion. It was nice. Then I gave her a couple hints for doing back massage on people because we talked about how I was in school. I gave her a sample as she reclined on the massage bed.

Then I paid and returned home. Got the mail, petted Jack at the shop. At home, I unloaded my books and gave pieces of ham to the dogs. They were happy to see me home. I ate my pita, made tea, put away dishes & laundry. Took the garbage out. Fed the deer.

Studied for tomorrow's quiz & pop quiz in Pathology.

Monday, July 20, 2015



I got up at 6:50AM. Hubby was already up. He was watching news until I got up. I kissed him goodbye as he left for work. We gave dog hugs to all the boys.

Then I got dressed & ready for Clinic Work.

Left at 7:45. I had to go out of my way on Remington because Clagstone is getting chip-sealed. I will have to be leaving early for the next month because I do not want chips in the Jeep.

Got to Clinic at 8:20. The doors were locked. I sat outside on the picnic table and they finally unlocked the doors at 8:30.

After I was done, I left Clinic and purchased a couple Pitas for $3.99 special pricing for 20 Years of Pita Special. Drove to KoKoPelli to get a strawberry smoothie. It was awfully hot and I was dry. Also drank all my water.

Then drove to Metro Express and washed the Jeep. Got gasoline at Costco.

Drove to my Chiro appointment. Had heat applied to my back, then got fixed.

Afterwards, went to Albertsons to get some groceries & apples for deer.

Drove home. Lots of idiot drivers on the roads.

At home, unloaded groceries. Ate Pita. Made tea. Studied.

Makeup Class or No Makeup Class


Got up at 8:00. Hubby had already been up for a while.

Back was not hurting as much, but I had taken several pills last night. Tramadol & Muscle Relaxant.

Hubby made eggs with cheese for the dogs. I cleaned out the dog bowls.

We got ready and took the dogs for a walk. Had to stop and get hubby a latte in town.

At the park, we went to the Camper side of the park and on the High Point Trail. It was shaded. Ran into some people walking and a biker that got WAY too close to us with the dogs. People use no common sense. They get too close...what if the dogs had been startled and attacked? Dumb people.

When we returned to the truck, the dogs drank a lot even though we had already given them 2 bottles of water on the trail. It was a hot day.

We drove down by the Boy Scout Area on the other side of the park. Almost all the Fire Camp had been disbursed by the Feds. There were only a few tents & several vehicles left. They were tearing things down.

Returned to town and stopped at Lil Town Market to get milk for hubby. I got a cookie. Ran into Earl and talked to him for a bit. I had to go move the truck because the dogs were getting hot. People were smoking right while standing right next to the truck. I moved it over to the shade.

Came home and hubby made lunch for me while I studied.

We watched some show called HUMANS on tv and I studied some more.

Drove to Rathdrum and picked up a latte from Jitterz.

Then I went to a make-up class hours held today from 3:30-6:30 at a Supervised Student Workshop designed to reinforce massage skills.

Worked thru our breaks and got out at 6:00. I picked up a couple pizzas that hubby orders from Pizza Hut in Rathdrum

At home, I ate pizza. Made tea.

Hubby had disposed of the front driveway posts that were knocked over. He also put away laundry, put away dishes, and emptied the trash.

Later, we went out to feed the deer some more. Quite a few came tonight. Some males with huge antlers.

I watered some plants, hubby cleaned my windshield on the Jeep, and got my shoes out of the Jeep for clinic work tomorrow.

Watched Family Guy. I got tired and went to bed.

Saturday, July 18, 2015



Got up. After sleeping on heating pad all night, my back felt somewhat better.

Hubby got up early and I slept in a little.

Not feeding dogs any eggs this morning because Lil Bit has been pooping too much.

Hubby received a phone call from people in Deer Park wanting to see the boat. We went down to take out the bedding, and then cleaned it up a little. Hubby put gas in the forklift so that he could pull the boat out. We drove to town in the Dodge with Buddy so that hubby could get a latte. Then we came back. The people were just pulling into the drive. I came home with Buddy.

Studied and put away laundry. Started dishes. It was really hot outside.

Hubby came up to the house at 2:00. He was all finished in the shop. Then he had a snack and watched TV.

I studied some more.

Friday, July 17, 2015



Hubby got up early and made eggs for the dogs. I remained in bed and listened to them eat for a while.

I got up and could barely move my back hurt so badly.

Took some muscle relaxants and got dressed. We took Lil Bit into town with us. Hubby stopped to get his latte. We got to the Chiropractor by 10:00. Hubby paid the bill while Kevin worked on me.

Then we got a latte for me at XXX. Drove downtown to eat at Hudson's Hamburgers, but hubby went in and said there were about 15 people waiting. So we drove over to eat at the BBQ truck on Best Avenue. We took the food to the park with the big Fire Hat. Gave most of the chicken which was SO dry to Lil Bit. Hubby had ribs which were dry, but he ate it all. The BBQ Beans were also dry. It was horrible.

People here do NOT know how to do BBQ. They pour BBQ sauce over the top of the dry meat. It is gross.

Then we got dog food & deer grain at Big R. Drove thru the Car Wash with the Jeep.

Drove to Rathdrum and picked up my antibiotics for my eyes. Got some groceries at the store next door.

Went home. Picked up junk mail. Then unloaded groceries. I had already taken pain pills in the Jeep on the way home and was gettng woozy. Went to bed to take a nap.

Hubby watched TV and called his dad.

I got up at 4:30 so we could take Ben & Bud to the Vet to get their nails clipped. Bud had a weird black thing on his belly that Dr Mike had to diagnose. Then we left but forgot to get Bud's nails clipped! We drove back, but they were closing. Now I have to take Bud in again.

Drove home and watched TV. Fed the deer. Two male deer with beautiful antlers came at 6PM, & then another deer came around 8PM.

I had to email KRN's vaccination info to her so that she can submit it to the College.

Went to bed after taking a hot bath.

Back still hurts.

Thursday, July 16, 2015

BEST A&P Class Ever


Got up and my back was still hurting. I was tempted to not go into class today, but I took a Tramadol and started to get ready for school.

Hubby had already left at about 6:30. I caught him before he left and he came back inside. We hugged & he gave me cash for my latte today. Even squished Buddy this morning.

I studied and did homework Checkpoints.

Then left for school at 9:00.

Stopped to get a drink at KoKoPelli.

At school, I was early. Talked to the teacher for a while.

We were having fun and taking notes for the "yearbook".

Dismissed at 12:30.

I drove to Pita Pit and got a pita. Then I drove to Rathdrum and picked up cheeseburgers for dogs.

Drove home. Gave 1 cheeseburger to Jack. Picked up the junk mail. Gave other burgers to dogs. I made tea & ate pita. Then took some Ibuprofen. Took a nap until 5:00. My back was hurting so bad. I don't think the Tramadol are helping anymore.

Hubby came home after 7:00, we took the dogs down to the park for a walk. The park is fixing the road on the Horse side of the park.

Came home and went to bed early because my back was hurting.

mid-term PATHOLOGY test 90%

JULY 15, 2015

Ben barked most of the night at something outside. I finally had to get up at 1:30AM to close the dog door. Then I took a hot bath & went back to bed. Back still hurting. Tummy upset.

Got up at 6:15AM when hubby when into Athol to get gasoline in my Jeep. Lil Bit jumped off the bed with me.

Gave the dogs pieces of ham. Bud received his Tramadol in a piece of ham. I took a Tramadol, also.

I put in 1 contact in my left eye, and did not put any make-up on.

Made tea. Studied for Pathology test.

Got dressed.

Hubby took $ to deposit in the bank from the sale of KRN's truck, so that I could write a check for her.

Drove into school at 9:00AM.

It was warm this morning, but not extremely hot. Closed the mini-blinds and left the swamp cooler on. Gave the dogs bones so they would occupy their time.

Gave a bone to Jack on the way out of the driveway. Mailed KRN's check in the mailbox.

Got a latte at KoKoPelli on the way to school.

I got a 90% on my test. I missed 5 questions. I should have done better. I REALLY NEED TO SLOW DOWN AND ABSORB THE QUESTION.

I went to Walmart after class to get groceries & Nair. Got eggs, bananas, and cheese.

Then drove back to school. Got a massage.

At 2:30, went to get a pita from Pita Pit.

Then drove home. Unloaded groceries. Did laundry. Refreshed dog water & food. Put away groceries. Studied.

Took at nap at 3:30. My back still hurts.

Hubby came home at 5:30. We took the dogs for a walk in the park at 7:00. The Fire Crew is still there, but some of them were leaving.

Came home and fed deer. There was a deer at the pond, but Lil Bit barked and scared it away. We went out to put water hose in pond. I watered my plants. It is SO dry outside. I put out apples for deer & gave them grain.

I did homework and hubby watched TV.

Went to bed at 10:00.

Tuesday, July 14, 2015



Got up at 6:30, hubby had already gotten up at 6:00. He was pretty chipper!

My eyes really hurt, so I took off all my makeup with coconut oil.

I had to take a hot bath. Then he left for work at 6:30. He had to stop at the shop in order to find a part for Mark today.

The dogs were fed a piece of ham. I forgot to give Bud his Tramadol.

Lil Bit was rubbing his butt on the floor this morning. I took him in the bathroom and wiped him off. Maybe I have to take him to the vet...

I fed the fish.

Then I went upstairs to dress. Just as I bent over to put on my jeans, my back seized up. I don't think it is the muscles, it is the vertebrae.

I could barely move. I went downstairs to take a Tramadol, some muscle relaxers. Sat on a heating pad for a while. Then I could move.

So I did my hair. Had already taken out my contacts because my eyes were dry and it felt like I had infection in them.

I studied for the Kinesiology test while sitting on the couch.

Finally, I could start to move but was still in a LOT of pain.

Did not put on any makeup.

I left for school at 8:00. Put a portable heating pad that I had purchased for massage into my Jeep. It made my back feel better.


Then we had a break. I heated my massage pad in the microwave. Made a phone call to the Salon and let them know that I could not make the 1:30 appointment for my facial.

I also called the Kootenai Vision clinic so I could make an appointment for 2:00PM to get my eye looked at by the doctor.

We received our Certificates of Completion for the weekend classes in our in-boxes today. That was exciting to see.

We left at 1:00. I drove to get a iced latte at KoKoPelli, then drove to the Vision Clinic. I got in early at 1:30. Yippee. The doctor (Johnson) actually said there was a contact in my eye and it looked like it had been there for a few days. I just opened a new package the day before. He said that sometimes they have two contacts stuck to each other in the package and when you put it in your eye, you don't notice. Then take 1 out and leave the other in. Gross. It was slightly infected.

The doctor said that I did not need antibiotics, but if it got any worse that I was to call them and they would give me a prescription.

I drove to get my Jeep washed. Then drove back to AICM to copy my quizzes for Pathology.

Left AICM at 2:30 and drove home.

At home, I gave ham slices to dogs, gave Bud his Tramadol.

I took more Tramadol for my back, more Ibuprofen, and more muscle relaxants.

Hubby finally got home at 8PM. We sat on the deck and talked for a while. Then re-posted boat on Boat Trader & dually on craigslist.

Monday, July 13, 2015



Got up at 8:30AM. Hubby had already left for work at 7AM. Dogs kept walking around and not letting me sleep.

Lil Bit had finally come upstairs at about 5AM, so I put him into bed with us. He woke up and let me kiss & rub his belly without wiggling around. He was very tired.

Refreshed dog water & food. Turned on fans & swamp cooler by 10:00.

Fed fish.

I started putting things away. Made tea & juice for breakfast.

Started washing dishes.

Did my homework for A&P.

A hummingbird got stuck in the house.

Picked up dog poo. 3 bags full. It started raining while I was out there.

Went to Athol to get my nails done by Deralee. Had to wait for a train.

Painted them purple because I do not have Clinic this week.

Came back and found that the Hummingbird was still stuck in the house. It keeps squeaking.

Arranged all my homework in order. Put papers in folders.

Started studying for Kinesiology quiz tomorrow.

Hubby got home early, but his hand was swollen from wasps stings. So he did not feel like doing anything. He had a little snack, put on his shorts and sat on the couch, watching tv.

Then he took several allergy pills. I think he took too many on an empty stomach. I made him come outside and walk with me to see if the deer needed food.

We came inside, and he fell asleep on the couch from about 7PM until he went to bed at 9PM. I watched tv, studied some more, and went to bed at 11PM.

Sunday, July 12, 2015


JULY 12 2015

Got up at 7AM even tho I was dirt tired. Rubbed Lil Bit for a while on the bed. Got up. Hubby was putting away the toilet paper that we had purchased from Costco.

Then hubby made eggs for the dogs while I got dressed, fed the fish. Got pillows for today's class. Put them in the Jeep.

I am exhausted. I want to spend the last day of hubby's vacation with him. But I have to go to class. Tomorrow, I will not have to work clinic or go to school, but I have to study for the big mid-term test in Pathology on Wednesday. And study for Kinesiology quiz on Monday. Too many tests every week. It is stressing the mind.

Went to class. Then we broke for lunch at 12:30.

Hubby came to pick me up with the dogs - Ben, Bud, and Lil Bit.

We went to get iced lattes at KoKopelli. Then we walked the dogs at the High School.

Stopped to get burgers for them at Wendy's where I went potty. Then we drove to Walmart so that I could buy Cotton Candy & Birthday Cake ice cream for Katie.

When hubby dropped me off at school, I got the leftovers from Toro Viejo out of the fridge that school and gave it to him so he could take it home.

By 5:30, we started cleaning up. Then we put away tables. Most of us left by 6:00.

I drove home behind some really slow cars on 41. They were only going 35mph. OMG. I wanted to get home so badly!

At home, I had snack food - turkey sausage with cheese, tuna with feta & sundried tomatoes. I made tea. Changed dog water & food. Hubby had mowed the backyard around the dog water tank.

We went out and fed the deer.

Took the dogs to the park & walked them in the horse area because the park was still closed on that side. We drove to the far end of the park to see just 2 small little fires still burning. We saw the Fire Camp that they had set up by the Boy Scout area.

Then we drove home.

I did some cupping on hubby as he sat on the massage chair.

We watched TV news and went to bed.

Another weekend day that we are not out on the boat. I won't see my family all day. Boo.

It rained last night. Woke up to wet everywhere. Now it is even more hot & humid.

We watched tv for a while, I got dressed & ready for class - Ayurveda. Hubby drove me to school. On Diagonal Road, I remembered that I needed underwear & a notebook. We had to drive back home.

We stopped for a lattes at KoKoPelli. I texted Katie and asked her to save me a seat.

Got there about 9:05.

We took lunch at 12:30, I went with Mark to Toro Viejo.

Hubby came to pick me up at 6PM. We drove to CDA to wash the Jeep. Got drinks at Jitterz. Drove home. Stopped at Lil Town Market to get milk. Hubby ran into Bruce and talked to him for over 20 minutes while I sat in the car. I finally got out to find out what had happened to him.

Talked to Bruce at the Jeep.

We drove home. Got junk mail in the box.

Fed deer. I took a hot bath. Had a snack. Made tea.

Watched tv & went to bed.



Got up at 9AM. Finally slept in late with hubby. Then we watched a movie on TCM with Jane Wyman. Holiday For Lovers.

I hurriedly got ready and left for Clinic at 10:00. Clinic from 11-12.

Drove to Rathdrum and picked up lattes for hubby and myself. Stopped to get gasoline. Then got burger & fries for Mark at shop. Got burgers for dogs.

Came home and gave Jack a burger. Gave lunch to Mark.

At the house, I gave burgers to dogs.

The printer died at 2:00. I worked on it for 1 hour. It is trash.

Hubby came up at 3:00.

We went into town and shopped at Costco, picked up a strawberry smoothie at Dutch Bros., got baby powder and some groceries at Walmart, picked up Stress Relief spray at Bath & Bodyworks in the CDA mall, purchased a new printer at Office Depot for $169. Went into Target, but could not find anything, so we left.

Had lunch at Costco. Hubby got a hot dog, I had a chicken wrap. Somebody from BC called about the boat and talked to hubby, but the guy did not want to buy it.

Came home and unloaded everything. Hooked up printer. Hubby watched TV. It was awfully hot and humid, so we did not go to the Racetrack for the Drag Races like we had planned.

Watched Archer and went to bed.

WHAT? Another A&P Test?


Got up by 6:45 and dressed. Ready for school. Makeup and hair.

Hubby was watching Antiques Roadshow when I got up. He gave the dogs fresh water & food.

Then he left at 8:00 to take Lil Bit into the groomer to get shaved. Lil Bit has been quite hot this year in his long hair. Beebo's shave was so cute that I want Lil Bit to feel that good, to.

I studied. until leaving at 9:00 for school.

I got a 25 out of 28.

I was totally lost. Maybe hubby can explain it to me. Need to watch the videos at home to comprehend.
Got a Pita at Pita Pit. Then drove to pick up Lil Bit at Apryl's Grooming. He had been shaved. He looked cool, happy, and wonderfully handsome!

We stopped at the Car Wash to run the Jeep thru. Lil Bit was nervous, but the people there just adored how cute he was!

Then we drove to Wendy's and got hamburgers. Lil Bit enjoyed a hamburger on the way home.

Bit fell asleep in the seat after he ate his hamburger.

 Lil Bit Sleeping in the Jeep

At home, I gave a burger to Jack & Mark. Picked up the mail; just junk mail.

Gave burgers to Ben & Bud.

Hubby came up after talking to some guy at the shop. We were both dizzy. Hubby almost passed out when he bent over Bud. I was very dizzy. Maybe smoke in the air is too much for us?

We both took a nap while watching Seinfeld. Then we got up at 4:30 and took the dogs up to Round Lake for a walk again. Just a 1 mile walk this time. It was awfully hot - 96 and humid - 20%. Picked up our lawnmower $66 for repair every damn year.

Drove home. Hubby dropped us off and went over to see Charles & talk to a customer.

I vacuumed the house, did laundry, refreshed dog water & did more homework.

Lil Bit is shaved!

Business Class


Got up and could not wake up. One Unisom pill and I was out for the night. Dressed, did my hair and makeup. Refreshed water for dogs. Hubby was watching news. Slept on the couch from 7:00 until 8:30 and then finally got up off the couch to leave for school.

At school, did a Business Class.

Left school late at 1:02. I hurriedly drove over to Hayden for my hair appointment with Rachelle. She did really good. I believe the other girl was not doing it correctly. I really enjoyed the time with Rachelle.

Afterwards, drove home. Saw guy with dog on motorcycle on Hwy 95.

Poodle on Motorcycle

Picked hubby up at home. He had sold KRN's Truck! So we drove into town and deposited his check from old man the other day and then money in bank for the Paypal parts we had gotten for him last night on eBay.

Went to park in Post Falls to walk dogs, but it was too hot. Too many dogs there, also.

Drove to CDA to go visit Heritage Meats that the hairdresser was telling me about. Got honey, eggs, custom garlic feta cheese, and some custom turkey meat. Yum.

Saw Deralee on the Hwy 95 while driving home. At home, I made tuna with the custom feta cheese. Made tea. Hubby sat to watch tv. I studied.

Tuesday, July 07, 2015



Got up and dressed. It was still really smoky in the air.

I studied from 7:30 until 8:30. Pretty good. Got the info and I can understand it.

Hubby stayed home with the dogs. He was supposed to get the lawnmower to the fix-it guy today, then meet me after he went to CN. Hubby was still wandering around in his underwear when I left.

Drove to school. Picked up a white coffee latte with almond milk at Jitterz.

School from 10-1.

On the quiz, I deliberately slowed down and analyzed each question. I got 24 out of 25 correct! I only missed one which was something that I probably should have understood.

Hubby met me as I was leaving the school, we both drove down to Pita Pit and got Pitas. Then we ate them in his truck. He had no napkins in his truck and I got mess all over me.

He left to go to CN Diesel, and I drove to CDA to wash my Jeep at the drive-thru car wash. Then I stopped at the Honey Place in Hayden to get a gallon of honey.

Drove home. Made tea for myself at home. Ate my pita. Gave the dogs fresh food & water.

Hubby got home and brought me another latte from Jitterz. He watched tv & ate lunch. Then we loaded the dogs up in the Dodge and drove to Round Lake. Dropped off the lawn mower to get fixed up there. Then walked the dogs 3 miles around the lake. They were hot & tired by the time we were thru. Stopped to get water in the campground and they drank for QUITE  a while. Buddy was hurting. We need to shorten the walks because he cannot tolerate them anymore.

Death March 3 Mile Walk at Round Lake

Drove home via Perimeter Road around Bayview. There was a Sheriff's car there to prevent anybody going into Bayview. Could not see the fire, but saw & smelled lots of smoke.

At home, dogs had more water. We went out to feed the deer, I watered some plants.

We rested & I studied.

Post Monday Blues


Got up and felt like sleeping for another hour. This is the last day of our four day weekend.

It smelled like smoke again.

At 8:30, I got dressed and started to close up the mini blinds to turn on the Swamp Cooler. Hubby made eggs for the dogs.

I helped feed the dogs.

We went into CDA and took a truck to drop off on Wilbur Ave in Dalton Gardens.

Stopped at the dump in Athol before going into town. I drove the Grey Dodge while hubby drove the guy's truck.

The people were nice and had us look at their new camper trailer.

Then went to get groceries at WalMart. Got grain for the deer. Stopped at Jitterz on the way home.

Unloaded groceries at home.

We worked on the information for the tax audit.

Hubby mowed the rest of the frontage with Chris's tractor. He came inside and took a shower.

We worked on the information for the tax audit again.

The Fed Ex truck brought Maggie's URN at 6:00.

Maggie's Urn

Hubby took a shower. He was covered in dust.

We watched news for the coverage of the Fire.

Fed the deer before we left.

Then we loaded the dogs up and took them to the National Wildlife Area on Diagonal and walked them. It was fine powder dirt there and we all ended up getting dirty. But we walked for over 30 minutes and got sweaty.

Dogs were very thirsty and drank SO much when we got back to the Excursion. Then we came home. Had to rinse the dogs off on the deck. I went downstairs to take a shower.

Had to dry my hair. Studied for tomorrow's Rotator Cuff quiz.

Sunday, July 05, 2015



Got up and immediately had endometriosis pains. I took a hot bath & lots of aspirin. Tried to rest on the couch, but it hurt too much. Hubby covered me up with a blanket.

Went back to bed until 10:00.

Hubby had already fed the dogs eggs for breakfast.

Then we watched Elysium on TV.

Bathed Bud & Ben on the back deck at 2:00.

We watched The Men Who Made America on TV for a while, then I typed up Notecards for Pathology Chapter 9.

At 7:30, we drove down to the park to walk the dogs. However, we noticed A LOT OF SMOKE coming from Bayview.

Apparently, there is a 600 acre fire that started in Bonner County and crossed over to Kootenai County. It is now burning on Perimeter Road. We contacted #3 and he said they had evacuated. We were worried about him.

Bayview is burning

Walked the dogs on the road behind the Park Entrance. They would not let us on the other side of the park.

Then we drove home. Stopped at Lil Town for hubby to get sour cream for his baked potatoes.

Took the water hose out of the fish tank and put it in the pond.

The deer came to eat. 

Saturday, July 04, 2015



We both actually slept until 7:30. Hubby got up and had to go meet a guy down at the shop by 8:00.

I got up and dressed. Closed the mini-blinds. Made eggs for the dogs. Picked up the old dog bones and disposed of them. Vacuumed.

Hubby came back from the shop with Ben & Bud.

Fed the eggs to the dogs. Had made egg sandwich for hubby. Hubby got bacon out of the fridge and cooked it in the microwave.

We took a nap on the couch from 11-12. Then we drove into town to get hubby a latte. We took the Jeep. Hubby wanted groceries, so we went to Spirit Lake and picked up some groceries. Came back and unloaded groceries.

Hubby cut down the dead tree in the circle driveway that the moles had eaten the roots. He mowed the back yard. It was really dry & dusty.

It is very hot & dry.


I put the water in the fish tank to clear it out. Then I put water on a tree in the circle driveway.

Put fish rocks in the fish tank.

We took the dogs for a walk in the park at 8:00. It was getting dark. We walked down by the Shooting Range road.

Came home and watched a little tv. I went to bed early.

Friday, July 03, 2015



Got up at 7:30. Hubby was already sitting on the couch with Bud and watching TV. He had been up since 6:00.

Hubby made eggs for the dogs with ham & bacon.

Maggie ate quite a lot.

We watched a little of a James Bond movie on tv; then got the dogs ready & went down to the park to walk them. Hubby got a latte on the way.

Walked them at Gun Shooting Road, but Maggie could not walk very far. We gave her water. She was already panting. We turned around and went back to the Excursion.

Maggie has to rest during the walk 

On the way home, she barked at some bikers & some people walking on the road.

At home, hubby went down to talk to Mark at the shop while I did more homework.

Maggie sitting by daddy after walk

Then we took Maggie down to the Beach at Farragut Boat Loading dock to walk her in the water. There were WAY TOO MANY PEOPLE & BOATS there. Boats were parked up the road leading to the dock area. It was awful.

She swam in the water for a while. 

Maggie Swimming

Then we drove down to Bayview, but it was even more crowded. They were having Bayview Dayz. 

We went to CDA to see the Model Home, but it was closed. We drove around the neighborhood and looked at what they were building & went inside the same model, but in the process of it being built. Maggie stayed in the air-conditioned truck and waited for us.

Model Home

Then we drove over to Wendy's to get her a burger. She did not want to eat it. I had to break it up into little tiny pieces for her.

Maggie's Last Car Ride

We drove home. Got her favorite red blanket. 

Hubby met the guy that is supposed to detail the boat. He was in the driveway outside the house.

Then went down to the Vet's and sat in the shade of a tree on the grass until they called us in.

We weighed her. She was only 118. She had lost over 20 pounds in the last 2 weeks.

The assistants took her into the back room and gave her an I.V. while we paid for the visit. They did not want to move her into a room because she was so big. So we laid down beside her. (some FAT assistant was trying to hold her down and was in our way...) Maggie went awfully quickly. Her head dropped. Hubby was holding her head and he caught her. She was gone. The Vet listened to her heart. Then he told us she was gone. We left. Hubby was crying. 

 Maggie is Gone

We went home. Had a little lunch. I made tea. 

Went to feed the deer. Lil Bit escaped and ran into the woods. Had to put Bud, Ben, and Lil Bit back into the house. Walked down to the big shop and closed the doors.

Came back to the house and watched TV. I felt bloated and uncomfortable. Lots of diarrhea.

Thursday, July 02, 2015



Got up and decided to stay home with Maggie. She was getting so much worse last night.

I did homework, and housework.

Went down to get my toenails & pedicure at 2:00 with Deralee.

I stopped at Lil Town on the way home to get half&half for Kahlua.

Hubby got home at 6:30. We watched TV and enjoyed time with Maggie.

Went to bed at 11:00. I was exhausted. Hubby took a shower and then helped Maggie upstairs to bed.

JULY 1 2015

Got up and started to get ready for school. Laid down on the couch for a while.

Maggie refused to come downstairs. She hid in Ben's bedroom beside the bed.

I cleaned out hubby's ear hairs.

Hubby left for work at 7AM.

I refreshed all the dog water & food. Fed the fish. Studied for 2 hours.

Drove to school, drive was uneventful.

Picked up a soy latte at KoKoPelli.

Arrived at school.

 Got the bonus question! So I got a 95% on the quiz today.

I left and drove to Rathdrum to pick up groceries. Hurriedly rushed home and put away groceries in fridge.

Then I drove down to get my nails done at Deralee's. I took down some Frank's Hard Lemonade Black Cherry that I had purchased at Super 1.

Got my nails painted pinkish mauve. Then made an appt for tomorrow at the same time to get my toenails done.

I drove home afterwards and refreshed dog water. I was very tired and took a nap until 6PM. Hubby texted that he was working OT for 2 hours. Then he came home and was down at the shop. I took Bud, Ben, and Maggie down with me to meet him.

We came home and watched tv. Then Josh came over and hubby had to go down to the shop to meet him.

Then hubby came back home and washed the Jeep windshield. Took out the garbage.
