A great night with Bill and Layla,,, and a gorgeous bulldog face!

We went to a monthly event downtown tonight.  It's called Third Thursdays and they shut down main street and have vendors and bands and all the shops opened and out on the street.  It's quaint and an awesome way to spend time from 5:00 to 9:00 on a Thursday.  We of course were home by 8:00.  I just can't stand in one place for long and there wasn't much seating so we walked around.  Blocks and Blocks... I laughing told Bill it felt like I walked miles and he counted 18 blocks that we walked.
There were some really good bands though.  2 Blues bands and a couple old Rock and Roll bands.  The crowds in front of each kind of reflected the age group of the bands playing.  Oh yeah... on a side street there was a hip hop DJ spinning records and a big group of the youngsters there.  God... I sound old!

Bill and I counted over 20 "you poor thing" looks I got.  He was never really aware of them before.  I asked him a while ago when we would go shopping to watch peoples reaction to me.  It's not like I watch for them, it's just almost sad how even old people will clear a path for me to walk, or parents will grab their kids from my way.  It's a half way smile crossed with a little touch of pity.  I  can't stand it!
If it weren't for the heavy O2 tank in my purse that becomes miserable to carry around, I would forget I had on a cannula.  If my feet and legs didn't swell (which is a new thing) when I walked I might not remember I have health issues.  There really are moments that I don't have lung pain, and my breathing is comfortable, and I just think I am me.  Then I am reminded I am not like everyone else and that bothers me more than you could imagine.

Any way... Bill and Layla and I had a lovely evening.
Third Thursday, Klamath Falls downtown
Bill's oldest daughter Cari lives in LaHabra in Southern California.  She has 2 English Bulldogs and someone brought over another year old girl that had been abused.  I have always wanted one but couldn't afford the cost, anywhere from $500 to $2k.  So, we are meeting her about half way between us and she is giving me the dog.  She has been with Cari for 2 weeks already and gets along very well with her dogs.  Has been looked over by a vet.  Needs some medical attention which our vet said she would do for us.  She is a year old and lived most her life in a kennel.  When she was taken out the other dogs there would fight her.  She has scars.  From what Cari tells me she is just a baby.  I am very exited to have her and baby her.
This is Priscilla.  I just love that face!!
Because of being kept in a kennel and not exercised her back legs are bowed quite a bit, and she is very over weight.  She weighs 90+ pounds.  Cari has been walking her and going a little further every night.  It will be something we need to continue.  We'll do awesome together.  Cari says she gets tired and just lays down to rest and won't get up till she is good and ready!  LOL
So, on September 2nd we are going to pick her up.  I just can't wait.

As for my new diet plan.  I am having a terrible time getting started.  I need to rid the house again of all crap.  Cookies, biscone's cookies, cheese... you know ... the good stuff.

I had Britt come over today and measure me.  I was surprised at a few of the measurements and shocked by others.  Let's just say I have my work cut out for me again.  It seems since the end of April I have been on a downward spiral which really needs to stop!

I have been to Curves Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday so far this week.  And, jumped on the trampoline a grand total of 5 minutes every day.  I just have lost all progress and am starting out at the bottom and working up again.

Tomorrow I will consider being brave and posting my measurements and weight so I can document a beginning marker.  Even though it shows on my BodyBugg program... If I am being "open and honest" with this blog that probably should include all things.  I'll think on it tonight and get my nerve up to post it tomorrow.

Now... there is a really exhausted little girl asleep in my bed that I want to go snuggle with.  Until tomorrow.
