  • Walked Liam
  • Lunch with Mom was lovely!
  • We had Tex-Mex since I can't yet convince Mom to try authentic Mexican and the males don't like Tex-Mex
  • (Both had work today)
  • So it was a tasty compromise!
  • I walked Liam because Dad was  super busy today
  • The funniest thing?
  • At the one house, there's a dog I've personally never seen before
  • It made sure to let us know it was there, defending its house
  • It was a mini dachshund
  • No lie, I'm almost positive Liam's head is bigger than the entire dog
  • Even the dog's owner was shaking his head!
  • Silly little pup...
  • Bills won!
  • That was close, though!
  • The Ravens are a great team!
  • Liam was good and quiet all day
  • I rewatched Hocus Pocus 2
  • I... have questions...
  • Apparently Disney has been floating an idea of Hocus Pocus 3 already!
  • Whether that actually happens?
  • 🤷🏻‍♀️
  • (I would actually adore a series. Think of the kooky possibilities!)
  • So, whom is Liam's favorite?
  • Well, between me and Mom?
  • Sorry, Mama!
  • (He ignored her almost entirely...)
  • Good: that walk was eminently pleasant
  • Happy: puppy kisses! ALL the puppy kisses!

  • Liam barked some this morning, but I was able to fall back asleep!
  • I slept in more than I wanted to
  • But that probably means I needed to?
  • Eh. It wasn't too late, really
  • Chemical cleaner seems to have worked!
  • My sink is finally draining well
  • And I'm giving it through tomorrow on the tub
  • But that's because I have to deep clean the bathroom
  • And I didn't want to do that today
  • Dad was in and out of the garage and Liam knew that
  • The  whining
  •  So loud!
  • I'll post a video on insta tomorrow if I remember
  • Why is it that cereals have to contain so much additional sugar?
  • I was looking at one and in one serving, it contains 20g of additional sugars!
  • 20!
  • That's insane!
  • It's a good thing I don't eat cereal often
  • Good: grocery shopping
  • Happy: no more clogged sink!!

  • Didn't do much today
  • Tiredness made me chilled
  • So I curled under a blanket for most of the day
  • My feet are no longer cold!
  • Liam did not get enough attention when I came in
  • He  ran to give me kisses
  • Always a delight!
  • (Whining pup? Don't have the volume too high, he gets  loud.)
  • Short people problems?
  • I had to close the attic hatch
  • I had to jump to get it fully closed
  • Anyone else in my house?
  • Nope.
  • At least I was able to jump!
  • (Gotta find those silver linings...)
  • I get to clean my bathroom tomorrow
  • Joy
  • Good: exercised
  • Happy: the  smile on Liam's face when we all have him attention? Beautiful!

  • Dad and my brother both came home and ignored Liam
  • So my alarm was a barking pup
  • Whose barking was his crying
  • Thanks, males
  • He calmed down when I gave him kisses, though
  • He just decided to bark at almost everything today
  • At least it means he's sleeping deeply now!
  • Also, I think I may drink too much tea
  • Liam had the zoomies and was not letting me by him
  • (He lunges, jumps back, drops his front half, leaps into 2 circles, and starts again
  • It's both amusing and annoying)
  • I managed to get a mug and he acted like I was holding a force field!
  • Cue endless circles
  • Weird pup...
  • (One of these days I'm going to have my phone in hand and record the madness)
  • So, yeah, I think my regular tea consumption has equated a mug with caution and respect in his mind
  • I am not complaining!
  • I can safely say the exhaustion and chills are this month's side effects
  • Not my favorite, but they'll only last another few days
  • Better than the insomnia!
  • Good: the bathroom is done!
  • Happy: Dad walked Liam so I was able to have some peace and quiet!

  • Quiet day
  • Dad has a really bad habit of letting Liam outside if he's barking in the morning
  • My windows open to the backyard
  • So he becomes my unfiltered alarm
  • Thankfully, if it's early enough, I can fall back asleep
  • As I did today
  • Liam was also feeling playful while I was in the kitchen
  • When your back is to my playful pup, the closest thing is nipped
  • He got my butt
  • Twice
  • It never fails to make me giggle, though!
  • Good: playful did not become zoomies!
  • Happy: leftovers! They make lunches so much easier

  • Basics
  • I had a thought as I was eating lunch:
  • Broccoli leftovers is nice, but if the family had let me know, I could have eaten it last night!
  • It's broccoli!!
  • (Why I don't just buy twice the amount in the first place...)
  • Liam fell asleep outside yesterday
  • Full 2 hours, completely asleep
  • I woke him up
  • That was actually a mistake
  • He honestly thought I was an intruder
  • So... no more sleeping outside for the pup!
  • (He was only territorial, thankfully, but I don't need those eyes just before bed!)
  • (The adrenaline shakes? This is the reason jump scares don't work on me!)
  • So, of course, when the pup was being naughty and stealing things for attention, I wanted nothing to do with it
  • Shakes in one day are  plenty
  • Otherwise, Liam has been wonderful! Almost no barking!
  • The parking lot is being used for a fundraiser tomorrow, though
  • So I get to look forward to that...
  • Strangely, this month has me craving soda? Which I never drink?
  • So weird...
  • Good: all chores complete!
  • Happy: my shower draining perfectly is honestly lovely? Made my shower quite pleasant!

  • Early post today!
  • Basics
  • Minus the kicks or stretching
  • My achilles and hamstrings don't love me right now
  • I'll catch up tomorrow!
  • We just planned the yearly visit to see the foliage!
  •  Love living around forests!
  • I doubt I'll get pictures, but hope springs eternal
  • Bees, I have  news:
  • MY SISTER IS ENGAGED!!!
  • They met at and got to know each other at work, he asked her out in one of the aisles, they shared their first kiss in that aisle, and HE PROPOSED THERE TOO
  • He got her manager (they work in different departments) to bring her to the aisle
  • (She honestly thought she was in trouble)
  • And her manager got all the pictures!
  • There is a little person jumping up and down and screaming in my chest
  • To offset the joy is Liam
  • I expected barking at the setup
  • Instead I have a pup who knows Dad is outside but can't see him
  • So he's whining
  • It makes the delight all the sweeter
  • Good: managed what I did of my routine
  • Happy: AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

  • Thanks, @Sif_Shepard, @DorothyMH, @CODawn, @Anek!
  • We're all just so happy!
  • Basics
  • My legs were much happier today!
  • I was just finishing my exercises when the game started
  • That... that was one way to start it!*
  • I was literally jumping
  • The things I'll do if my heart rate is already elevated...
  • *(98 yard touchdown followed almost immediately by a fumble)
  • I really hope the Steelers' rookie QB manages better later in the season
  • It was his first career start and we're in a great place right now
  • I didn't think I was out of sorts today
  • And then I realized I hadn't yet taken a shower
  • ???
  • Liam was as quiet as I suspected he'd be!
  • So that was very nice!
  • Good: it wasn't too late to shower! (can't sleep with wet hair)
  • Happy: I had a very big salad for supper!

  • Always great when it happens, @CODawn!
  • Basics
  • Liam's barking woke me again
  • I again forgot my alarms, though, so it was good!
  • (And he let me sleep in almost 2 hours!)
  • Don't know where my head was yesterday, though...
  • Mom was proud of me
  • (Almost as much as I was of myself, tbh)
  • All because I remembered to buy Gatorade with the weekly grocery shopping
  • I have forgotten that just about every month since I started drinking it after seeing Bee
  • And then had to ask Mom to pick some up the day before
  • Silly thing to be proud of!
  • Liam was so tired when Mom came home that she had to go to the back door and call his name
  • He was obviously still out of it when I got back
  • But I did get all the kisses when he finally noticed me!
  • Good: managed grocery shopping in a  busy store
  • Happy: puppy kisses!

  • Basics
  • I am so glad I'm seeing Bee in two days
  • My poor upper torso!
  • I'm certainly feeling the combination of pushups and weights
  • But she'll put me right back!
  • B&G guys were clearing broken branches this morning
  • Half an hour before my alarm
  • Liam did not want to stop barking
  • So that was
  • Just was
  • But I needed no nap!
  • Absolutely adorably amusing?
  • Liam came back from his walk, thought I was still out back, went running
  • Saw me out of the corner of his eye, did a full sliding stop, turned, and all but lunged at me
  • I got  all the kisses!
  • Then, when he was barking outside, Mom came home
  • I literally just have to say, "it's momma" in a higher pitch and he runs
  • So Dad was completely ignored in favor of Mom
  • That combination of "it's so-and-so" and high pitch works every time!
  • Good: mowed the lawn!
  • Happy: that perfect reaction!

  • Completed today and tomorrow
  • Hoping the daily exercise is quick and easy tomorrow!
  • The weather can stop spiking
  • Cold mornings, warmer days, cool nights sound lovely
  • Until you're sweating in the afternoon and needing to go outside to feel cool again
  • Managed no caffeine until a needed nap was cut short
  • Not much, though!
  • (I'll be having plenty tomorrow morning)
  • B Dylan Hollis was on The Kelly Clarkson Show
  • Did I watch strictly for him?
  • Yes
  • Was it perfect?
  • YES
  • Someone needs to give that man his own show!
  • Jay mowed the lawn
  • Liam barked
  • At least it was in the morning and didn't interrupt Liam's nap!
  • Bee and Tyler tomorrow!
  • I desperately need them
  • Good: completed chores
  • Happy: BDH is the best thing social media has given my serotonin!

[*]Silly little pup...

Little pups think they are the biggest dogs! This reminds me of the time we took my mom’s dog with us when we went to my aunt’s house in the country. On the way home, there was a cow blocking the street. He was growling his head off!

We also once had a friendly pit bull just walk in our house once and he thought he would be able to take it. Nothing bad happened, but it was scary because while the dog was very sweet, we weren’t sure how it would react to our dog’s growling.

Belated congrats to your sister!!

  • Thank you, @LizardFriend95!
  • I guess they feel they have more to prove when they feel small? Pups!
  • Daily Exercise and Push-ups
  • Glad it was only 50 lunges!
  • Especially glad it was only 10 push-ups!
  • That visit to Bee was  so needed
  • I look like an octopus hugged me
  • But feel  much better!
  • And Bee is doing very well with life right now!
  • Slight change to our park visit
  • We were going to go on Tuesday, but the forecast now shows snow
  • So we're going Sunday instead!
  • But!
  • SNOW!!!
  •  So looking forward to it!
  • It'll be flurries and none will stick
  • But the first snow of the season is always a joy
  • And Liam will be in raptures
  • Good: enough sleep, so no nap needed!
  • Happy: Theo gave me all the kisses!

  • I thought you'd appreciate it too, @TheLibrarian !
  • Basics
  • Today and tomorrow
  • Decided to push through so I don't have to try exercising without caffeine
  • Even if I get enough sleep
  • (Which I probably won't, to be honest)
  • Getting up even just an hour before my usual time will make me incredibly groggy
  • There may be a nap before the blood draw...
  • I hit my elbow ( hard) while exercising
  • So that's fun
  • Ibuprofen helped, thankfully!
  • It is making a cracking sound when I straighten it, though...
  • I'll see how it feels tomorrow
  • Liam heard sirens this morning
  • I was woken by ah-woos
  • Not the worst since it's a pretty funny sound
  • Just heard about Robbie Coltrane
  • He will be missed
  • Good: completed chores
  • Happy: got home at the same time as Mom and Liam pushed her  and Dad aside to greet me!

  • Daily Exercise
  • Pushups
  • Well, I didn't get enough sleep, did get a nap, and drank so much water
  • I also filled the bag almost a minute faster than usual
  • So...
  • The technician was wonderful; she worked harder than anyone before her to pull my vein
  • (Apparently I have "hidden veins"? News to me!)
  • She did great!
  • It literally spurted when she stuck the needle in
  • That was fun!
  • (I can't watch as the needle goes in, but after? Fascinating watching the blood move!)
  • It's also the first time I've felt at all light headed
  • It was  very mild and went away immediately
  • But I'm thinking it's because of how fast it pulled
  • My elbow still hurts a bit, but that's all
  • I'm waiting for the puncture to heal a bit before using the gun
  • (Because of course I hit the elbow I prefer to have blood drawn from. At least it was the back of my arm!)
  • Liam decided to bark a lot
  • A lot
  • He wasn't happy I was in the shower and no one else was home
  • Turns out, when I  really yell, I lower my pitch
  • I went down at least an octave earlier!
  • (It stopped his barking. That's all that matters!)
  • Good: blood donation
  • Happy: 2 naps! And Liam let me sleep through both!

  • Always great to know like minds, @Sif_Shepard!
  • Basics
  • Am I a bit upset leg day is tomorrow after the walking today?
  • Little bit!
  • So, Letchworth Park
  • Stunning!
  • The trees had much more variety on the drive in, but the gorge was even more beautiful than last year!
  • Though it looks like the snow is not coming Tuesday (😭), it is expected to only be 7°
  • So today was the best day to go!
  • I'll go through and post the pictures tomorrow, probably through a Google attachment
  • I also had a few moments of almost nausea from raised heart rate
  • I can only assume that's from the blood donation yesterday
  • I came home and ate a huge salad
  • So I feel excellent!
  • Regarding the Bills game:
  •  VINDICATION
  • Ahem
  • We needed that one
  • Good: lovely workout from the park!
  • Happy: Letchworth, salad,  and puppy kisses!

  • Basics
  • Only feeling the hike a bit today!
  • We're all feeling a bit off here
  • Rain is scheduled for the rest of the week
  • So our sinuses are complaining
  • Fun times
  • Liam may be understanding things more
  • Mom spelled out walk and his head immediately came up and tilted
  • So we may need to come up with a new word...
  • Good: slept in!

  • Basics
  • Mom and Dad both had off, so we had a quiet day in with movies and tv
  • Did you know that Little Shop of Horrors has an alternate ending?
  • 23 minutes of the original play ending
  • Audrey II wins
  • We were not expecting that!
  • Thor: Love and Thunder was enjoyed
  • (Did I miss most of it? Yep. Loved the ending, though!)
  • Finally convinced Mom to watch She-Hulk!
  • (Thank you, Disney, for recommending it!)
  • I had to stop the show to get Mom to go to bed!
  • So it's going well!
  • Liam decided to be awake for most of the afternoon
  • And a little bit of a brat when he didn't get attention
  • He was also singing this morning
  • Didn't figure out why on that one...
  • Good: simple, fun family time
  • Happy: watching my family enjoy one of my likes is always great!

"ad astra per aspera"
I am loving all the shows, it's hard for me to pick a favorite for all the new stuff; I haven't disliked anything other than What If, and I did actually like some of the episodes. She-hulk was so good, I especially loved the ridiculous episode with the magician in the beginning of the series with Madisynn and Wongers :D My wife is a huge fan of Tatiana Maslany from Orphan Black, we had a lot of fun with this one. The other recent ones like Moon Knight and Ms Marvel were really fun too. Daredevil is my all time favorite and for the movies I think everything with Cap in it after his first movie is S tier. (I could geek out about the MCU for so long lol, I have a lot of other favorites).

I've long preferred the shows to the movies, @Sif_Shepard. I could go on an hour long rant about the movies (Stark is the villain? Without the mutant background Civil War made no sense. Please,  please don't get me started on the pure, nonsensical fan service End Game was. CAROL WAS RIGHT THERE). But the shows have had major high points.

She-Hulk has managed to blend serious and humor brilliantly. I never sat down and watched Orphan Black, but I saw enough of it to know that when Tatiana Maslany was announced I was supremely happy!

I might actually say I like She-Hulk more than Moon Knight. And that's pretty huge!

Madisynn and Wongers are just pure brilliance. I didn't like her at first, but the more I saw of her, the funnier the scenes became. Also, Luke? Hysterical!

  • Basics
  • The neighbors who share the parking lot are having a deck installed
  • It made Liam bark and whine for a while
  • Then the chimney cleaners came
  • Liam got a walk, I got to see some interesting tools, and we got some upsetting news
  • Not a bad morning!
  • Bad news: there was definitely a fire in the past, the terracotta is obsidian in color, also cracked, and the mortar is missing in places
  • So no using it!
  • (And an estimated $9000 to fix it)
  • Good news: insurance! It'll be fully covered and fixed by an excellent crew
  • We finally turned on the furnace the other day
  • Even I admit waking to 17 is a bit too cold
  • But I have the family satisfied with 20 at the highest!
  • (It's 19 at night!)
  • We're coming into cat cuddling season
  • There is no down side
  • Good: talked to strangers
  • Happy: my Liam was in the kitchen for the last bit of the cleaning and was an excellent boy! He barked and whined, but wasn't aggressive at all!

  • Casper cuddles for warmth, @CODawn, not so much affection. Cold weather has him hiding under blankets with me!
  • This was apparently a cold snap, @GentleOx. It's going to be 21 through Tuesday.
  • Liam is a warm, furry beast during the cold weather, though!
  • Basics
  • Didn't use weights because my back is hurting? Don't know why...
  • (I probably slept wrong. Liam woke me with barking more than once.)
  • The deck is done!
  • Planning the menu
  • Dad wants to know what I'm making from the Indian cookbook
  • Oh, it's just for me?
  • (They have a convention supper next Friday)
  • Well, I can just adjust the heat for Mom and do it another day!
  • It's vindaloo
  • No
  • (I'll save him leftovers! It's better the next day, anyway!)
  • Is Liam learning how to howl?
  • Maybe
  • It's an undulating sound, not the typical howl
  • Rather pretty, actually!
  • There's a reason I call it singing
  • He was doing it earlier
  • It's becoming more common
  • It only took him... 2 years?
  • Oh, pup...
  • Good: left over pork for lunch!
  • Happy: Liam was a very well behaved pup today!

  • Thank you, @NancyTree!
  • Unfortunately, we just got rain. But! It did get down to 6°! So it wasn't all bad!
  • Basics
  • Walked Liam
  • Dad had a meeting and Liam was whining, so out we went
  • He wasn't great - pulling a lot - but wasn't actively difficult until the dogs
  • Two women walking three dogs, specifically
  • All of them wanted to play!
  • And then the two police officers in their parking lot
  • Liam  really wanted to play with them!
  • Finally got us home in one piece!
  • Mom tried a new recipe
  • It wasn't perfect, but that just means more garlic bread experiments!
  • Much happiness with that!
  • The pain in my back yesterday was just a small spot out of alignment
  • It's back in now, but the surrounding muscles aren't best pleased
  • That's fun...
  • Good: taking that walk
  • Happy: had an apple cider fry cake* for the first time!  Super yummy!
  • *Apparently incredibly common in Rochester, NY, from the Dutch settlers?
  • A fry cake is a yeast donut, but not allowed to rise before frying
  • So, dense, but  good
  • (I had 2. Shh.)

  • Basics
  • Ran some chores with Dad
  • As directionally challenged as I am
  • (Give me a map, verbal instructions,  and a helper, please!)
  • Dad can beat me on occasion
  • It's a trip we've made countless times before
  • Even I know where we're going
  • And yet...
  • Dad and Liam took a nap today
  • Dad can be forgiven for missing Mom coming home
  • (His hearing aids don't help much when fully asleep)
  • But Liam?
  • He slept through Mom coming in
  • Madness!*
  • (There were kisses in the end. After some prompting. Puppy was tired!)
  • He had been awake early though
  • Woke me after 4 hours with barking
  • Dad calmed him down, thankfully
  • Good: chores completed!
  • Happy: chores completed! (There was human interaction; that I managed it with a smile is very happy!)
  • *Look at them! She was able to get changed.

  • Liam was naughty this morning
  • (Early enough that I slept through it, thankfully)
  • Dad left the jar of peanut butter out
  • Liam got it
  • Liam ate a lot of it
  • It wasn't great coming out again
  • And he didn't want  any treat for most of the day
  • But otherwise he's fine!
  • (I blame Dad more than Liam. You do not leave jars on the counter. ESPECIALLY not peanut butter!)
  • We walked to a local restaurant for lunch
  • One of the last few days of high weather
  • So .2m/.3km was a very pleasant walk!
  • We then came home and watched movies
  • (The things that happen on a bye week...)
  • Good: walked to lunch
  • Happy: my usual* veggie burger had 4 times the amount of hummus!!
  • *It's incredibly hard to find good veggie burgers around here, so though I could have tried something new, I went with this option. My taste buds thanked me!

  • Yes, @Anek! I thought it was weird until I tried it!
  • Basics
  • My head did not like those burpees
  • Last five had a minute break before them
  • Liam allowed cuddling, though!
  • I'll be  very glad when these weather changes stop
  • Liam was in a  mood
  • He woke up when Dad came home for lunch
  • Then wanted a walk, but Dad went back to work
  • So Liam whined for the larger part of 3 hours
  • I ignored him, not wanting to give in
  • But it was annoying
  • I'm hoping sleeping well tonight will have him in a better mood tomorrow
  • I've lost a cookbook somehow...
  • I'm going to take apart the mess on the bookshelves tomorrow
  • Hopefully I'll find it!
  • Good: grapes! Lots of grapes!
  • Happy: those 30 minutes Dad had Liam out for a walk were delightful

  • Liam was much better today!
  • A little whining, but every time I told him it was bedtime he settled right down!
  • (It annoys me greatly* that my brother regularly uses 'go lie down', which Liam doesn't know. It's been 2 years.)
  • *Infuriates is a better word some days...
  • Dad has been putting Liam outside and then going to the kitchen in the morning
  • Now, even I have trouble hearing Liam in the kitchen
  • And Dad's deaf
  • I've been waking up before my alarm too many times
  • Resulting in a nap today!
  • Of course, I was woken by Liam barking
  • Because of course I was...
  • Good: Liam was a good boy!
  • Happy: the quiet times  and that nap!

  • Walked Liam
  • We went the opposite way I originally planned
  • A couple were walking their dog and I didn't want to fight Liam
  • Still had a bit of a fight
  • Puppy wanted to  run
  • So there was some tugging
  • And the umbrella was fighting me
  • Because of course it was raining, too
  • But I did see Tyler!
  • And it was lovely
  • My sacrum region has been tight, so he stretched me some before realigning
  • I thought my horizontal splits weren't as good as I wanted
  • Then he stopped the stretch before I actually felt it
  • So it's going well!
  • Liam woke me with barking again
  • I managed no nap, though!
  • And not too much caffeine!
  • Good: Tyler
  • Happy: the kisses I got after my appointment? His whole body moves with his tail!

  • Well, today the wakeup was from Dad's forgotten alarm
  • Gentler, but still not fun
  • There was a nap today
  • I didn't let Liam outside when I got downstairs
  • He pouted, but gave in
  • It was a much better morning!
  • I adore that my family knows and understands me
  • I'm writing this at the restaurant table and not talking
  • And they're just talking over me
  • They're the best!
  • (It's my sister's birthday. She's 23. My baby girl is growing up!)
  • They have decided on a date!
  • It's in September 2024
  • His brother is marrying October 2023, so they're pushing it a year later
  • Good & Happy: seeing my sister and her fiance again!

  • Basics
  • 500 punches!
  • Liam was a very good boy for me today!
  • The vindaloo was exceptional
  • But my spice tolerance has apparently gone up?
  • Because that really wasn't that spicy
  • More peppers next time!
  • (The first time I made this recipe, I removed the seeds and we were all sweating and crying. How far I've come!)
  • Do I mow the lawn tomorrow?
  • It doesn't  need it
  • Minor dress drama:
  • The wedding dress my sister bought for her ex was bought for her ex
  • She wanted a different dress, but he insisted
  • (Yes, we're all  very glad he's gone.)
  • Well, the store has the dress she  really wanted on clearance
  • Problem?
  • It's a size 6
  • She's a 2
  • If it can be tailored, without being hideously expensive, it is her literal dream dress
  • So fingers crossed!
  • Good: Liam was very good
  • Happy: I can still taste the vindaloo (after brushing my teeth!)
