First off... we all need to laugh today. Next... some Dawg-style motivation. ... Read more
It's a Dawg Life, Catch up
Sunday, July 22, 2018      14 comments

I'm going to try to squeeze in a "catch up" blog before Jane decides that she wants to go down for breakfast. I haven't blogged since late May, but I've been sparking all along. I got sloppy in late June about recording my food and it shows... Read more
My Life as a Dawg, Vacation Plans
Saturday, July 21, 2018      15 comments

Sorry, Sparkers. I have been gone an unconscionably long time. But I'm still sparking. Today is the first full day of vacation with Dan and my mother-in-law Jane. Jane is Dan's stepmother and she is a candidate for The Most Wonderful Woman ... Read more
My Life as a Dawg, they are making me a hard a$$

So, I invited my Spectrum friends to come to my agency's gala. We sat at the same table... well, they sat at the same table. I was busy thanking all 240 people who came to give my agency money, so I wasn't able to sit with my Spectrum friends un... Read more
My Life as a Dawg, I'm back
Sunday, May 20, 2018      16 comments

I'm alive, Sparkers. Nothing dramatic kept me away. Just life. May 11th was our annual gala for work. It's like planning a wedding every year. It was a huge success. We raised a ton of money (for us), had lots and lots of guests, amazing auction... Read more
My Life as a Dawg, productive weekend
Sunday, April 22, 2018      15 comments

This was a fun, productive weekend. Dan and I went to Boston Friday evening to see a play. There's a theater group that performs three shows each year. The plays are pared down and simple. They ask for a free will offering. This was the sec... Read more
My Life as a Dawg, work out updates
Saturday, April 21, 2018      14 comments

Well Sparkers. I'm not going into the nutty details of my convoluted brain. Suffice to say that I finally got out of denial and made an appointment to see about this blood sugar thing. I got a referral to a new primary care who works with an end... Read more
My Life as a Dawg, working the plan
Wednesday, April 18, 2018      13 comments

Quick blog, Sparkers. I'm still following the FIRST training program to improve my running pace. I'm in the middle of Week 3. So far so good. I missed one run, but I also have extra time in the plan, so I'll eventually make up that run. Th... Read more
My Life as a Dawg, Marathon Monday and Spark Meet

Well, Sparkers, as you all know by now, it was the annual Boston Marathon Spark Meet Weekend. This is the weekend when ONEKIDSMOM, MOBYCARP, and OVERWORKEDJANET come to Boston. I am grateful that MOBYCARP (Kevin) qualifies for Boston every years... Read more
My Life as a Dawg, Dawg Tired.
Wednesday, April 11, 2018      17 comments

So Andrew left for Aruba on Monday. He and his sweetie are gone for 10 days. Of course, we are all happy that Andrew is actually going away on vacation for more than a long weekend, but there was some good natured joking among the 6 AM Crew abou... Read more
My Life as a Dog, Leptin Voo Doo
Tuesday, April 10, 2018      15 comments

I'm only 2 days in following the leptin diet rules and I'm convinced it is witchcraft. (See Mastering Leptin, by Byron Richards.) For the last 2 months my weight has fluctuated between 174 and 178 with the occasional appearance of 172. I re... Read more
My Life as a Dawg, On being a Byron (Richards) parasite
Sunday, April 08, 2018      15 comments

Good grief, Sparkadelics! Where has the time gone? The days just fly by. Quick visit to the Homeland (aka, New Jersey) for Easter. Ate all the good Polish food. 'Nuf said about that. Work was ridiculous. Didn't get enough sleep all week, but cau... Read more
My Life as a Dawg, First Day of FIRST Training
Saturday, March 31, 2018      19 comments

Goodness. I thought I was out of the woods after Monday's arms/back workout. After more than 2 years with Andrew, I am still amazed that he can come up with a new trick that makes me sore. Wednesday's trick? Lunges. But a new-to-me lunge. I... Read more
My Life as a Dawg, post-arms workout day.
Tuesday, March 27, 2018      17 comments

Dan insisted that I give my legs a few days to recover from Sunday's run. Since I had to agree if I was to have any peace in the house, and since it is impossible for me to lie (especially to Dan), I asked Andrew if he'd go easy on my tired legs... Read more
My Life as a Dawg, Ran my own private 5K
Sunday, March 25, 2018      14 comments

Today was the day that Dan paced me for a 5K race pace. I finished in 33:52, or a 10:55 pace. (Actually, I ran a 10:31 pace, but because I didn't run the tangents, my race pace is slower.) My personal record was January 1, 2017 at 9:39 pace. ... Read more
