What do these four foods have in common?
They are all foods that Hazel ate yesterday, without my permission, of course.
Yep, I sure am the pack leader.
She has learned to paw open the cupboard. On the bottom shelf we have cooking supplies, and some bulk stuff for the kids' lunches. Her first steal of the day was the flour, which she quietly extracted from the cupboard and brought to her crate.
You can imagine that mess. Nothing like flour licked into a dog bed. The flour was caked onto her nose, too. It was nasty.
I cleaned that up.
Hours later, it was the sugar. Then a carton of chocolate milk.
At lunch, I warmed myself up a piece of lasagna, and placed it in front of the computer so I could eat while I maintained my active, but nevertheless slightly pathetic, online life. I forgot a glass of water, so I got up to get one. When I came back, the lasagna was gone. She didn't even spill the plate on the floor. She simply sat in my desk chair licking her lips. And my plate was licked clean. I was gone all of 30 seconds.
So, I got myself another plate.
Lest you think I am intelligent, I will now prove you wrong. Once again I got up after placing my lasagna down, this time to get a scrap of paper on which I had scribbled a list of new swim workouts I had created to be entered into Training Peaks.
And once again I came into the room to find Hazel licking her lips. ARGH!
I think Hazel and I need a little intervention from Cesar. I'll let you know if we get on the show.
In other news, I am attending my first yoga class tonight with one of my athletes, Linda. Linda is a big time yogi. I'm definitely worried about looking like an ass. But I'm desperate to work out, and yoga is permitted! So here we go.... Full report at 11.
I wrote a couple of reviews on my Reading It blog. One is on The Rules of Survival which is a young adult novel, so probably not of great interest to you all. The other review is of Raymond Britt's Qualifying for Kona
Check it out!
I am steadily making it through a list of books I created for my November and December goal of reading a book every 48 hours. If you have a suggestion to add to it, let me know. I am currently truly a nerd. I miss my athlete self.
I want to publicly thank those friends/sister who have reached out to me in the last week, worried that I have completely gone off my rocker. Thank you.You know me well.
