Random things and a Ca-nine one one

Yesterday I was craving spaghetti all day, seriously.  And for once in my life, I had all the ingredients, including the gluten free noodles.


Hallelujah!  Clearly Jesus loves me.

So, I laid out all the things I needed for later when I would actually make the spaghetti and then went back to work.  MacGyver got home around 5:30 or 6:00 and as luck would have it, he was craving something all day too.

beer and wings

We made a compromise and I cooked the spaghetti and we ate a very small amount and then we went to Smokey Bones so MacGyver could have all you can eat wings.  I had a baked potato and broccoli because wings, uh, no thank you.  Especially at 9PM!


Afterward, we came home and little Hank was trembling.  He wouldn’t stop and we couldn’t figure out why.  After we went to bed he made the most horrible sound and then threw up all over the place.  It was horrific.  I felt so bad for the little guy and we were worried sick.  He didn’t throw up anymore but I stayed up with him until 3am just to make sure he was okay.  He seems fine this morning but if he seems at all sick at any time today, I’m taking him in.

Baby Hank

I can’t have my baby sick.

Because I didn’t want to leave Hank alone for too long, I went for a fairly short run this morning.  I ran down by the park where we located Baby P’s mom and reunited them and I was so happy to see the family this morning.  Look how big Baby P is getting.

I also thought I got really lucky because I saw something sparkly on the ground so I picked it up, put it in my spibelt and then kept running.  When I got home I took a closer look.


Nope, not the hope diamond, it’s a piece of glass.  Son of a bitch.

Our weather here has been pretty hot and we’ve had a ton of rain lately.  It seems to come every day around 11 or 12am and since I didn’t get to lay my mulch this weekend, I had to do it this morning before the rain came hence the delayed post.

What do you think?



And now, even the gnomes are happy.

That counts as a workout right?

Is there a particular food that you crave more than any other?

Do you have any pets?

Poof, weekend gone!

Good Morning!  I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that it’s Monday already.  I mean, we hardly did anything this weekend and then poof, it was over.

Weekend gone

I know a lot of people look forward to having weekends off and not having to do anything but I am NOT one of those people.  I like getting shit done.  The weekends are when I do yard work and house projects and if I don’t accomplish something every weekend, I feel like I’ve wasted precious time.


Yes, but I didn’t do anything I really love either…well, except running, I did that.

I ran 14 miles total this weekend, 8 on Saturday and 6 on Sunday.  It was awesome.  I planned on lifting weights too but I never got around to it.  I haven’t gotten around to it in months really and sadly I have a plan all typed up with an excel spreadsheet so I can track my results and it’s empty.

I have youtube videos saved and bookmarked so that I can easily get in an afternoon workout while watching the TV but apparently being prepared is only half the battle because I haven’t gotten around to making a full commitment and it’s starting to show.  You know, in the region I typically sit and the area in which I bend, and other areas.

thigh gap

Yes. This is my life.

I’m gonna get on those weights, stat!  I really need to do some weight training but wouldn’t it be a lot more enjoyable if I could somehow include the dogs?  I mean, Boomer could use it and Hank’s getting a bit of a belly and since his nearly drags the ground as it it, well, we need to get them involved.

This is the workout!

Tell me about your weekend, did you run?  Did you do any other workouts?  Did you get projects done around your house?  (Maybe you shouldn’t tell me because I might hate you, purely out of jealousy obviously.)

Birds of a feather flock, wait don’t tell the dogs….

It’s still raining here.  Mind you, I’m not complaining because just last month it was me who was saying that we desperately needed rain, it’s just that it’s sort of miserable when it rains all day and we don’t really get a break from it for several days.  I mean, I need a little break.

girl in rainNope?  Okay then.  We’ll move on.

Or not….because this morning MacGyver and I took the dogs for a walk in the rain for the second day in a row.  They hate it too.  Woody also hates rain.  He just sits on top of his cage and looks outside as if he wants to go out but he isn’t going to because dry is soooo much better.

It must be hard to learn to fly in the first place but imagine trying to learn to fly with soaking wet feathers.  Not gonna happen.  This morning we took Woody with us along with the dogs on their walk.  He rode on Boomer’s back.

Woody and Boomer

What?  Like you never seen anything like that before?

The neighbors think we’ve lost our minds.  Obviously they’re new to the neighborhood.  They’ll learn.  At least it’s interesting around here.

How’s your weather this week?
