Monday was a work day so not much was done other than reading. Today I did a 30 min ride. It was challenging and felt pretty good. I was mostly able to keep up with the instructors cadence and resistance call outs. This is a pretty decent improvement for me.   New heart rate monitor works wonderfully.  

 

Well well well, didn't you just come back with all of the grit and determination!  B)

LOL   Thanks but…

 

 

well… today was a flop.  Woke up with plans to workout right away but life decided other things were on tap.  Discovered, as I went to grab my workout clothes from the drying rack, that the sprinkler was still running about an hour after it was supposed to shut off.  Could not turn it off without shutting off the water to it.  Valve box was covered in some out of control weedy vine, so started tearing that out to get to it and found some leaking sprinkler thing I know not what to do with.  Went inside to have a break and spilled my coffee on the carpet and remembered we needed a new carpet cleaner and headed out to grab one and the day just went downhill from there.  By the end of the day 3 of the 4 adults in the house were emotionally wrecked over cancelled puppy plans. 
 

someone spread on the butter because im toast.  


tomorrow is a new day.  I now have no new puppy to prepare for so at least I’ll have the time to get some actual things done!!

Blargh, it's Wednesday already?  Yikes! Puppies take up so much energy.  I think I'll be lucky to even partially complete the next few weeks.  I need to figure out a situation where I can ride my bike and workout safely.  This little man is my shadow.  A shadow with sharp little teeth and paws!

 

1/3 bike rides

1/3 workouts

3/7 reading (puppy training book.  🤣 )

 

Wish me luck!

Congratulations! Eddie is adorable!  It will take time but I bet he becomes an amazing workout partner.  

 

Thanks!  So far, he has me doing lots of work on hands and knees with a scrubbing motion.  😝  It's a good thing he's so cute!

Today we finally got our sprinkler problem fixed.  I'd forgotten how much work it is to water the lawn manually.  It's been out for a week (and new puppy week at that!).   I can now set it and forget it.  Bliss!  It's been over or near 100 degs here for most of that week too and things are suffering.  I've lost several of my new perennials in the process.  Boo!  

 

This week has been the first BLTs of the season.  j

Honestly, there is nothing like a fresh garden tomato sandwich. 

 

My son got his first job and this is his first real week at work.  He had to get up at 8 am and let me tell you the sky was falling over that.   :D

Otherwise, things have been pretty much the same, waking up a few times at night with the puppers, lots of house training trips outside, less cleaning up of house training oops inside, and still lots of being used as a chew toy.   Eddie's first vet visit is tomorrow.

My husband is the same way.  I have to sick dogs on him and rip covers off and all that jazz.

I've never been big on tomatoes, but as a kid I loved fresh garden spinach & mayo sandwiches. And fresh peas right out of the garden. 

 

I really need to figure out where my veggie garden is gonna go and a plan to actually, you know, garden :P

I feel like @DJtrippyT might want to jump on board here, since she also recently got a dog to go with her cats.

Ha. I was just coming here to moan and whine. Puppies suck. Everyone here loves him but I have to do all the work and I’m the one he bites and humps. I’m pretty over him at the moment.  It may be one of the only times I’ve ever wished I didn’t work at home.  No working out has happened. No work has happened.   It’s miserable.

Keep these updates coming! I started getting a little puppy crazy and my boss just brought home an adorable Bernadoodle and need reminded that puppies are work and I am not ready for that kind of additional work until at least next spring

Maybe you need to have a conversation that the minute other people get home you are OFF puppy duty and get to relax and do something nice for you :)

My daughter is asking for a puppy as well.  She wants to train it as a service dog, but I totally know that if we get a dog all the training will fall to me! 

 

So glad that you are doing good in all the heat!

Still nothing happening on the challenge front.  Puppy is a full time job it seems.  Unfortunately for my sanity, it was just rough timing a bit.  Daughter started a new job right after working more hours and husband has a big to-do at work that he is dealing with at the moment.  It'll all work itself out, but getting on the bike or getting a workout in has been next to impossible.  He spends some time in his crate every day, but that's when I get basic home care done.  These clothes arent going to wash themselves!  Dinner needs to happen!
