It's Kind Of Looking For Glasses When They're On Your Head And Other Menopausal Moments !!

Realised last night, that I'd forgotten to do my 'Weighty Matters Monday' post.

We went fossil hunting, on Sunday, in the bed of what was once Lake Lahontan, which was a large lake that covered much of Northern Nevada over 9000 years ago.

I was pretty tired and actually slept in till 9:27, Monday morning. Probably fortunate that I didn't have school and wasn't scheduled to pick up Taylor till 3pm. :-)

Finally remembered to weigh myself, sometime in the afternoon. I remained the same as last week.

Wasn't too surprised, as I got pretty dehydrated on Sunday.

There ain't no toilets out there in the desert, baby, and my injured knee doesn't do to well with the squatting thing, so I wasn't sure how I was going to manage the peeing thing. Men certainly have an advantage, in that department !! :-)

I've noticed that whenever I get dehydrated, I retain water like crazy the next day ... so hopefully, that will come off in the next day or so and I'll have a good weight loss next week..

Okay ... now to the title of my post and a quick explanation about the accompanying video.

The first part of the video, shows my feet crunching through gypsum flakes, as I walk back up a slope, after taking photos of an old ruin.

Then I realise that Sparky, one of my dogs, was not right at my heels, like he's been all day.

Look back down the slope and there he sits, looking all forlorn. Poor thing was really pooped out and obviously decided he was going to not climb up that slope !

Sent Taylor down after him. She gets down there and starts yelling up at me to take a picture. You can hear her faintly on the video if you turn it up.

I couldn't figure out why my stupid camera would not take a photo. You can hear me on the video, telling everybody that it wouldn't 'take'.

In the meantime, Taylor's yelling at me to 'Take a picture' and Sparky's just sitting there, obviously wondering why someone didn't just pick him up and carry him up the slope!

Finally I give up and turn the camera off. Once I turn it back on, it takes photos fine :-)

It wasn't till I got home and found this video, that I realised, I must have accidentally hit the record button, when I started up the slope ...

So I had video evidence of one of my, what I like to call, 'menopausal moments' !!

Sorry about the choppiness and wild swinging and the views of my feet, but when you don't know you're filming then that stuff happens! :-)

Sparky, watching me trying to figure out why my camera won't fire, decides he may as well take a short nap. :-)

Taylor, carying him back up the slope....
