Got back to KR's house and hubby changed his clothes.

Hubby was hungry, so we stopped at Sonic Drive In for food. We drove over to Spokane for the concert. Parked across from the concert hall, then had to change parking places to behind the Bus because the parking lot would not take our credit cards.

Got into the Knitting Factory as they were opening the doors.

Chris & KR were there to see the concert. Hubby went to get drinks. They were $12 each. Very expensive. Got a table in the back. Uncomfortable high chairs. Lots of drunk people were in front of us. When the concert started, Chris & KR went down front to be in the crowd.

We drove up to Hope to meet Dave & Vera. Got gasoline. Hubby talked to Dave & decided to meet them at the yard in Pendoreille.

I drove the Jeep back to Pendoreille. We picked up Dave and Vera. Then I drove back up to Hope to drop them off at the Boat.

 Taking Boat from Hope to Farragut

I had to go potty, cleaned off the windshield. Then drove back to Farragut Park. I had to wait for them for about 11 minutes before they got there.

It took about 4 tries to get the boat on the trailer. Dave & Vera were a lot of help.

We saw several dogs there, and one guy had 2 cute Boxers that he was walking.

On the way home, hubby had forgotten to put down the antenna and it broke as we were going under the Hwy 95 Overpass.

At the RR tracks, he finally pulled over and put it down. Too late.

When we arrived home, I took Vera to the house to see the kittens. Zim was acting drugged and blind again. He is not using his right paw. I was very concerned about him.

Then the guys brought the Dually up to the house and then we all loaded into the Jeep again. It was getting dark already. I drove up to Sandpoint and we ate at Lou's. I had chicken fried steak. It was good.

It was raining and horrible. Hubby had no rags, no gloves. I had to help him drag the rear- end on to the trailer. It was awful backing it into the yard. Katie's boyfriend helped him put it on the trailer. We gave them some extra money for helping.

After we loaded the cabinet into the back of the Dually, we finally left.

Drove over to Office Max to wash our hands, use the restroom. Order my business cards.

KR called and said that she had been involved in a rear-end accident with a delivery truck. They had hit the back of her Jeep when she had been taking Beebo to get groomed.

She said that she was ok. We did not need to come get her.

We left at 1PM for the drive to Kellogg. Took the Jeep.

It was awful driving up there in the rain. Of course, I was the first one to get there. When Elsbeth got there, I finally called the person in charge; Jordan. She came over to tell us where to set up.

They put us in the front area.

Amber finally got there about 20 minutes later. She told us we were charging this year. $10 for 10 minutes. Supposedly, according to Admin, all our tips were supposed to be "donated" for MS instead of using them to pay off our tuition. Strange.

It kept raining the whole time. Brittany & Larissa went up to room 410 to massage a whole bunch of girls in their room. I went upstairs to make sure they were safe.

We got done and the girls went to get dinner.

Beebo was still upset from the accident, but he was very well groomed from Apryl's.

We went for a walk in the park on the road near the Gun Shooting area. Walked too far. I was hurting again, and Bud was panting.

Drove back home. Talked to KR for a while, then she left with Beebo. She had to get all her meal prep for the week done, and go to the Immedia Care to check out her pain in her neck. Her neck was all tight and while we were walking at 11PM, she experienced pain in her lower back.

Street lights at Prairie were not working. Traffic was backed up badly because they had 4-way stop signs there. Kim called me on the phone to talk with me.

I stopped at the Jitterz in Post Falls to get a latte.

Kim had wanted donuts, so I was behind her at the light at the bottom of the hill, but turned into the gas station to get Krispy Kreme donut holes.

Class was unfortunate because Pam was absent and Lydia was teaching Pathology. Our whole class was sitting in for make-up time.

Lydia refused to let us work on our projects, so we just sat there for 3 hours, totally bored. We had all come expecting to work on our projects.

After class, I bolted out the door and drove to Spokane for the Outside Event at the Insurance Company. I was the only one there early. 12:40 was when I arrived. Parked in the basement. Valet parking. Got a ticket to get my car. Went upstairs and set up. I did one girl that had been waiting first before any of the others arrived. The Supervisor arrived last. We had no music for the first 20 minutes of massage. The Supervisor had to massage because one of the students did not show.

It got quite hot in their break room. It was nice, on the 8th floor to look out the windows across the city while massaging.

I validated my parking on the 8th floor and then went to the basement to collect my Jeep. I drove home on Trent because traffic & construction was so very bad at 3:30PM.

Got to KR's work around 4:10. Cops were EVERYWHERE. I saw more cops today than I have in the past year.

I then drove to pick up Greg at his work across the street. Traffic was horribly backed up just crossing the light on 95 & Prairie.

Picked hubby up and then we drove over to Katie's dad's house across from Costco. Looked thru his tools & cars. Hubby bought a Napa parts box.

Then I was hungry, so we ate at Red Robin. It was not so good, and very expensive. When we left, we drove past Anthony's Seafood and it was PACKED. Over 200 cars in the parking lot. WOW.

We washed my Jeep at Metro Express. Then got gas at Costco.

I drove hubby back to his truck. We drove home.

Gave dogs leftovers from Red Robin. We watched the Finale of Harley and the Davidsons. It was a good show.

KR went home. Hubby said that he wanted the Lexus. He will give to KR.

Then Bruce & Barb insisted on coming out to see me to say goodbye. Hubby drove his own truck home.

I was exhausted. It was more than an hour that they kept talking. Finally, at 9:30, I told them I had to go to bed.


Got up at 6:30. Hubby was already up and making eggs for the dogs.

I drove in to school. It was raining very hard.

At school, we were in Medical Massage today. Elsbeth was "the body". We worked on Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and upper body.

Katie and I worked on Kim.

Then at Noon, I went to put on my outfit.

Hubby came to see me. We went out to lunch at Del Taco.

Came back at 12:30.

I finished folding laundry.

Then I did phone calls.

Talked to Jackie about my hours to complete.

Clouds in Post Falls

Drove home.

I was exhausted. Hubby had left the house a mess. I had to clean up breakfast plates, put away laundry, put down dog food, clean up cat litter.

Hubby had stopped at Bar in town to have a going-away party for his boss. She was leaving early.

Hubby got home around 8:30.

We watched tv for a while, then went to bed.

Wilson woke us up by stealing the toe ring on the window sill in our room. He ran outside with it and I ran after him. As I was in my bare feet, I had to go put on shoes while hubby watched where he dropped the thing in the grass. I went outside and picked it up. Bad Dog!

He then proceeded to vomit on the dog bed, which I had to clean up. He also brought poop inside the house and put it on the dog bed, which I had to clean up.

Hubby made eggs and gave it to the dogs.

I worked on my business cards & business brochure.

Sunday, September 04, 2016



Wilson jumped into bed with us at 5AM. He would not settle.

Hubby woke up at 6:30 and went downstairs to watch TV quietly. It was cold, so he turned on the heat.

I had woke up, but went back to sleep and did not get up until 8:30AM! OMG I slept late!

Hubby made eggs for the dogs. I cleaned up. I put away laundry. Started dishes. Hubby watched tv some more.

We went downstairs with food for the cats & hubby cleaned up the litter.

We took the dogs to Farragut to walk on the triangle walk by the sewage treatment area after hubby got a latte on the way.

Came back and hubby texted his brother. Then he sat on the couch for a nap before Bruce & Barb drove up.

Day on Boat


Relatives visiting.

We got up at 6:30 and gave ham to the dogs.

Took them for a walk in the park around the water tower.

Hubby got a latte on the way.

Then we drove into town. Hubby had to take customer's truck to the new shop; I went to pick up Bruce & Barb. Stopped at Jitterz on the way.

Barb came out of the hotel, we picked up Bruce as he was walking back from Walgreens.

Drove them to the new shop.

They looked thru the shop. Then we drove them to our house. Showed them the house.

Then we drove up to Sandpoint. Hubby was driving. It started to rain.

Got to Hope and ate lunch at the Floating Restaurant.

Boat was filthy. Somebody had tried taking down the ripped zipper canvas.

Bruce took the boat out of the dock. Hubby let his drive it around. Midway to Sandpoint, the canvas ripped out, so we took the boat back to the dock slowly.

Everybody was thirsty again, so we stopped for drinks at the Floating Restaurant again. Waitress never came back to refill anything. Horrible service today.

Drove back to CDA and drove them around. It was almost dark.

We decided to eat at Fedora because Bruce wanted BBQ, but there are no BBQ restaurants in CDA, then he suggested Italian, but no Italian restaurants in CDA except for chain restaurants.

We listened to a very nice singer at Fedora, I got his CD.

Drove Bruce and Barb back to their hotel.

Then hubby wanted donuts. We drove to Dugout Donuts that is open 24 hours, but has no donuts at night!

Drove to Walmart. Got some groceries. I got cupcakes.

We drove home.

It was cold in the house because we left the A/C on. We turned off the A/C. Gave the dogs fresh water. Went to bed at 11PM.

Friday, September 02, 2016



Got up at 7AM when hubby left for work.

I gave ham to dogs. Changed their water & food.

Put away dishes. Put away laundry.

Gave cat food to the cats. Changed the cat litter.

Called the Vet at 8AM. Dropped Invader Zim (black kitten) off at the Vet's to have them look at his right front leg. He has not been using it.

I drove to get my nails & toes done with Tracey Lee. Was there until 2PM.

Went over to the new Espresso stand on Government Way because Tracey Lee said that it was really good. Got a small latte.

Drove home.

Called the Vet from home. He said X-rays were inconclusive. Said he gave Zim an antibiotic shot for possible infection. Might be a shoulder or knee strain as it was imflamed.

I went down to pick him up at 2PM. Stopped at Post Office to let them know that we had not gotten hubby's business cards as it said that they were delivered on 8/31 via the USPS website confirmation tracking. The Postmaster is on vacation for a week and will check when she returns.

When I returned home, I filed a claim with VistaPrint that we did not receive the business cards.

I also called NW Plus Credit Union to let them know that I did not receive the credit card, even tho hubby got his. They will send another one out for me.

Worked on business plan & business cards.

A&P FINAL, Medical Massage & Invader Zim Hurts His Leg


Got up at 6AM.

Fed the dogs. Fed the cats. Cleaned up after Koda kitty.

Studied for upcoming test.

Put away laundry & dishes.

Drove to Rathdrum and got groceries for Taco Feed potluck. I brought Taco cheese, sour cream, and hard-shell tacos.

Stopped to get a latte at Jitterz, but ended up getting a chemical-tasting granita. What a rip-off for a free drink.

At school, studied some more.

Then we put away everything and took the test for over 1.5 hours. It was 200 questions.

After handing in my test, I went to talk with Christine. Then went in the office to talk with Jackie about my hours. She said that if I do not miss any more class time, I will be able to graduate with MCP20.

Went back to the classroom after everyone was done taking their test. Had tacos while Jen graded tests.

After she was done grading, she handed back the Tests and we added up our points.

I got 80% which is pretty good considering that A&P was not my strong class.

I helped clean up and drove home.

Did some cleaning at home. The carpet installers had come and poured out some leveler cement to take out the dips in the basement floor.

I got ready about 4:30 and left for Clinic. Tonight is my last night in Clinic. Brittany and I were the only ones in Clinic tonight. 

I got finished with my shift from 6-9 and drove home.

Was exhausted. Hubby had just gotten home after riding his Harley from the new shop. Talked to hubby and then went to bed.


Got up at 7AM after hubby had left for work.

Put away dishes & laundry.

Fed the dogs, fed the cats. Cleaned up cat poo.

Drove to school.

Had Medical Massage. Learned shoulder work. Mostly lecture. Sam was the body today.

Went to Rathdrum Super One to get groceries on the way home. Needed cat food.

At home, I unloaded the groceries.

Did some more cleaning.

I was tired and took a nap.

Hubby got home at 5PM. He loaded up the wood from the front porch basement and took it down to the shop.

There was a woman dropping off her truck, so he gave her a ride to Spirit Lake.

When he came back, he had Mark help him load up the donation stuff for Goodwill so he can drop it off tomorrow.

He came in the house and we went down to check on the kittens & Koda. Invader Zim had injured his right front leg, he would not put any weight on it.

Went to bed, worried about the kitten. Have to call the vet in the morning.
