Jury Duty...yes...that's right...jury duty again.

I got called, AGAIN, for jury duty and i was there all day yesterday. The first case was a DUI case and a hit & run. The defendant was totally pretty. I thought all criminals were ugly!

Needless to say it came down to the guy beside me as the one and only alternate and the rest of us were excused. I thought I was able to go home but when I check in they said “be back at 1:20”…fuck. But I came back and was called again at 3:00. They picked their 18 and half of them want hardship excuses so I’m hoping I get on this one because it is another month and a half case! My boss will be miffed but what can i do? I'm a popular juror!

And it’ll get me out of secretarial duties for the next 6 weeks : ) Everything happens for a reason.

Off to the 2nd week, my friends...i'm doing good. I even made a friend there!

Any time I'm away from home and return, I always go crazy when I see Kody. I get so excited that I beat him on his ass and then mimic a chirp that he might do if I really hurt him.
And I'm REALLY good at this dog chirp. I sound just like a dog would if you stepped on his foot.

This makes me wonder, sometimes, what the neighbors might think. Do they think I abuse my dog? What if they call animal control and file a complaint?
I'd be so ready. In fact, I'd probably laugh at the officer on my doorstep, at the silly idea that I abuse my dog. In double fact, I'd invite him/her in to show him/her how abused Kody really is...

Here is my book that I refer to often when Kody is 'under the weather'. Or when he's eaten a shoe:

And here are his preventative meds and stuff I use to keep him free of ticks & fleas when i take him on any of his many hikes all over California:

And before we GO on those hikes, this is what I use to prepare his pads for the rugged terrain:

I started using tough foot when his $85 shoes kept ripping.

But if Kody is not in the mood to go hiking, then he's free to play with the many toys littered all over my...excuse me...his house:

Playing with all those toys can be exhausting, so I gave him a way to go outside and relax whenever he wants by cutting a hole in my house. Just for him:

And when he comes back from sunning himself, sometimes he likes to go for a bike ride in his very own, custom-made Kody Carrier:

(It's up for the winter)

Then there are the days when Kody just wants a good swim in the lake while his mommy kayaks. Just to be cautious I make him wear his life vest:

All this activity makes Kody hungry. He likes to stand by HIS cookie jar until I figure out he wants a cookie:

And when it's nap time, he's free to sleep on MY bed, littering it with tons of his hair. Which i eventually end up eating in my sleep.

While Kody naps, I have to get busy cleaning his house preparing for his next adventure:

So yes Officer...cuff me now becuase this is ONE abused boy:

I've decided to remove comments because I feel bad when I don't respond to those that comment and then I feel like a greedy unimportant child when I don't get many. I know...but I AM getting better :)

So now I blog as sort of a diary for myself and if I never get a visit again, that's okay. I just want to write...and when i want to write. As you know, blogging can become cumbersome.

I've been blogging for a few years now and how many diets have I been on? at LEAST 10. The last one being Weight Watcher Point system. Well that was too much work. I hate counting and i hate being responsible for ensuring i don't go over my measly 20 points. Now i'm on a low carb diet and I swear...i HAVE to stay on this fucker until i lose all my weight because i am going to be 42 in 3 months and i'm sick of ringing in each year with a ring around my pant line.

So, yesterday i got up at 5:30, had my coffee, loved my Kody and then went to the gym. Now THAT i really loved...I had planned on visiting the steam room but I forgot a towel (no friggin way i'm walking anywhere in public without a towel to hide my hideous lower half) and i forgot to shave my legs. So i headed to the dry sauna, fully clothed, and meditated for 5 minutes in there. what a great way to start your day.

Today i walked Kody for 45 minutes and tomorrow it's back to the gym.

With a towel and shaved legs.
