I cant believe my baby boy is 2 years old. How fast did that go. I always cringe a little at each of my dog's birthdays. I dont want them getting older!!!
It worked out perfectly that Ernie's birthday fell on his agility day. He just LOVES when we pull into their driveway because he knows he gets to see all his human & fur & feather friends. He even got to do long jumps on this day - nothing Ernie loves more than to SKY through the air. Maybe his name should have been Superman! :)
Surprise Lunch Date
Yep, most of you know that Wednesday is my lunch date with the hubs - but on Tuesday, it was so nice out - so FALL like - that I was planning on walking a bit for lunch. I happened to call Ricky to tell him something & he said, "I'll call you back, I'm here to order my lunch" - I asked where he was & when he told me, I was only 2 block away... DETOUR! I ended up surprising him & we had an extra little date day thrown in. That was fun. Always like getting a breather in a work day with him.
I'm telling you - when every 6 weeks comes by, I am in such need for a refresh on these gray hairs that are wagging war against me. It's crazy what winning this battle over them does to my spirits - at least for a few weeks.
New Car Gas Tank
OK... I'm used to a tank of a car with a V6 Engine... & with that, comes paying for fuel & doing it frequently. I had to fill up my car minimum every 6 days - could never make it a week on a regular schedule - & it was a hefty price to fill up too. When gas was at its highest, it was nothing for it to be $65.00 a week to fill up.
Cue to now & my new 4 Cylinder car... Ricky told me I'd save money with this car but OH MY GOSH! I'm now 12 days out from my last fill up & even when I do fill it up, its so much less out of my pocket too! ... This is a nice side effect of a smaller car!!!
The birthdays just keep rolling this month & this is a double decker in one day. My twin nieces turned 15!!! They can get their drivers permit now y'all.... nope nope nope & nope. I'm not handling this well. I'll be sitting up with their mom & dad worrying now.
Julie is an ULTRARUNNER!!!
She did it - a 50k! I can't believe it... so proud of her. It took her 9 hours & 5 minutes but she finished 55 minutes before the cut off time & her goal was 9:59 - to eek in at the end. She had plenty of time to spare. She's never even done a full marathon before - but she had devoted so much time to training for this & has herself in the best shape ever - what an example of a momma she is for her boys. I told her I'm in total awe of what she's accomplished. I'm glad she crossed that finish line - but more so, that she crossed it healthy & strong!
Feels like Fall
I am so glad that we finally got FALL FEELING DAYS!!! Not only for us, but for the dogs & for the horses who got to stay out & enjoy all the fresh air! Now, if only winter will give us a little bit of time before it moves in.
Tell me something GOOD about your week
