Hump Day

Took Dakota to the doggy doc yesterday for her check-up and shots and was shocked to find that she's lost six pounds. SIX. That's like me losing 15 - 20 pounds. First, I asked her what her secret was (*G*) and then decided to increase her food a bit. She HAD been getting heavy (was 52 pounds and should be 50), so I'd cut it just a tad, but apparently it was too much. She's 44 pounds now.

She should be a little on the thin side due to her breed, but I don't want to starve her either. Plus, the weather will be getting nicer and we'll be walking more, so she'll need a bit more food.

In other news, DD and I have been watching Lord of the Rings over the past couple of weeks (about an hour a day after school). She's really enjoying it, though she doesn't understand some things and misses small, subtle references that I have to explain. I was worried the uri-kai would freak her out, but so far the only thing that she wanted me to fast forward past was the spider, Shelob, in Return of the King which is funny since she's not afraid of spiders IRL.

Otherwise am still working on the cover for "Now and Forever". Found some stock pix and have an idea, so have sent to my cover designer, Judy, and we'll see what she comes up with. I also have one scene I want to add in, so am trying to make the time for that.

And such is my life. :-)


You Are the Middle Toe

You are naturally very aggressive and competitive. You go for what you want.

You like to get ahead, but there is nothing traditional about your approach to success.

You use your creativity and your wit to your advantage. You are a flexible thinker.

You have a lot of inner fire and strength. You harness your passion well.

Mostly right.

I fast forward past Shelob, too. That part is just gross. The part that freaked out Josh when he first saw it was when they catapulted the heads of the dead soldiers over the wall in Gondor. He was in 7th grade then, I think, and couldn't sleep.

Six pounds! She's awfully good for not asking for more food.

The boys will tell me if I skimped on their bowls. LOL.

I'm in the minority, I'd rather read the books than watch the movies.
Wow, but Dakota is healthy, yes?

You Are The Fourth Toe:You tend to be a cooperative and social person. You like being around others.
You are pretty attached to your friends and family... but only in a healthy way.
Love and relationships are the cornerstone of your life. People come first for you.
You are independent when you need to be, but you prefer not to travel solo. You like having your support system.

Pretty spot on, though I am usually the support system not the other way around. *g*

I hope your day is enjoyable!

I'd fast forward past the spider too. Or I'd just not look at the TV. LOL
