Can you believe it? Two posts in one week! It’s like I’m a real blogger or something. Here’s another list of Friday Five for ya’.
1. Molly is famous!
She’s been featured on a blog that isn’t mine! The amazing Lea at Running with Ollie has featured me and Molly as part of her Furry Friday Feature series! If you landed here via Lea’s blog, thanks so much for coming over to say hello! And to Lea, big thanks for sharing our profile and making Molly famous!
2. Injury update
Molly thinks this injury status is
bullshit tolerable; she misses running and playing but the cuddles are a pretty decent trade-off while we live our life in 10 minute increments of icing. So far, all imaging has come back normal. Another MRI tomorrow; if it’s normal, we may need to reassess the current course (image after image after image is getting old).
3. Mutts & Life Lately
Despite my injury woes, we’re still having some fun around here. Last week we went to the Mariner’s Home Opener. We usually go to one M’s game each year and I’d never been to a home opener. It was a little too crowded to become an annual tradition for us but it was definitely fun!
The mutts have been livin’ it up too! Tony went on a field trip to the local brewery with us last weekend to enjoy some sunshine and treats. Look at that tongue, he loved his tasty snacks! And Diamond is the first mutt in the house to discover the new, extra plush bathroom rug. Pretty impressive considering she’s the only dog that can’t see it!
4. The Importance of Hydration
I may not be running but I’m still drinking!
I’ve just traded some of my water and Nuun for some wine, beer, and cocktails. It’s tough being on a strict rest-and-recovery plan.
5. Home Improvements
With a little extra time on my hands (several hours a week, that aren’t being spent pounding pavement), I’m trying to tick a few items off the never-ending home project list. I’ve got the living room/dining room/hallway repainted and decor put back together. And I built that ikea bookcase all by myself! Which freed up the little bookcase to move to the living room; it’s a work in progress.
This coming weekend, we’re hoping to build a ramp from our deck to the lawn. Tony has been struggling with the deck stairs, so it’s time to do his little
old body a favor. I’ve sketched up a general plan… Stay tuned until next week to see if I’m still married. Kidding! Sorta. The husband and I work great together usually. And this project is way less complicated than several others we’ve conquered survived.
What are you up to this weekend? If the weather is nice, will you be running or gardening (another task that I need to start getting on top of!)?
