I’m all about the no drama
You guys!! I am loving your responses to yesterdays post. Thank you all so much for sharing a little about yourself and leaving links to your blog so
I can stalk you others can check it out. If you haven’t linked up yet, head on over and do it!
Today’s post is brought to you by yesterdays craptastic run.
I really wasn’t feeling it at all, but just forced myself to do just 3 miles. Heck if I can run a half marathon, I can at least do 3, right?
Bahahaha….nope. Okay so I did make it to 3 miles but my legs and arms felt like lead and I just felt weird the whole time.
Anyway I busted through the door and declared to Mike “that was the worst run ever.” He didn’t even know what to say because I usually come back high on endorphins wanting to ninja kick everyone out of excitement, so he just laughed. I don’t blame him.
The bright side is runs like these make you appreciate the good ones even more.
So I made a huge glass of Nuun and sat with Bam in the community back yard while he ran around hunting for squirrels. Although he’s kind of bitter he can’t climb trees.
I love sitting outside in the shade after a run or ride. It’s so nice & refreshing to chill, recover and let Bam stretch out his leggies. Our patio is tiny so he really loves the open space.
“So much space, so many activities”…..
That was until a neighbor brought her dog out on a leash (her dog & Bam love to play together) and told me “you should put him on a leash.” I looked at her, said no and took Bam home.
I don’t think I ever told you guys, but before we went on vacation, I took Bam out back and didn’t realize another neighbor who has 2 vicious dogs were out there. They attacked Bam (5th time this has happened to Bam & 3rd incident with others) so I jumped in the middle, picked him up and one of them bit me.
As I was holding Bam the dog started jumping on me, biting Bam’s paws so I kicked it. Not enough to really hurt it, but enough for it to stop. Then the owner yelled at me to stop kicking her dog. Let’s just say there was a party at 7am and the whole neighborhood was invited because I let her have it.
Here’s the ring leader. The other is the same breed but black & white.
Bam is a very balanced dog and has never had an issue with any other dog, but for some reason these two gang up on him. If you knew the owner, this would probably all make sense. Ha! Man, I wish I had the time to tell you all about her, it’s quite the story. But I don’t want to waste my time either, so let’s just say that Mike & I get a lot of entertainment out of “nature girl.”
Anyway long story short, because of that the HOA created a new rule that all dogs have to be on leash on the entire property including the fenced in back yard.
Since Mike & I aren’t followers like sheep, we don’t follow that rule. Bam wears a shock collar (which we hardly ever have to use) so now it’s become a big thing that we aren’t following the rules.
Ahhhh we’re renters, and didn’t sign the contract so what are ya gonna do about it!? And let’s face it, Bam can’t read anyway.
I went to Costco to pick up a few things and saw these tanks. Has anyone tried one on? I love the fit of the tanks they had last year and I’m curious about these. I’m digging the bright colors.
Because I like it when others post a pic of their shopping carts, here’s mine. Margarita lovers, Mike loves that Margarita mix and it’s only 10 buckaroo’s.
Apples & celery are for the juicer which is going really well.
Ever have a craptastic or workout?
Have you ever had an odd neighbor?
This lady takes the cake. I swear we live in a vortex of control freaks who are retired and have nothing better to do. Ha!
What was in your cart the last time you went grocery shopping?
