    Thank goodness it is Friday, right?

    Ugh, so sorry, what a frustrating day! At least you have a beautiful weekend ahead of you to relax and snuggle that pup of yours.

      It was very frustrating!!! Not how I wanted to end the week/start the weekend for sure.

    Poor Bella. But it looks like she handled herself with dignity and so did you! What a day! I hope the weekend is good!

      She’s been napping most of today and just chilling. When I take her outside to pee she lays down in the grass and enjoys the sun. She is doing ok, just slow and lethargic. πŸ™

    Poor puppy! My kitties both have reoccuring stuff and it’s so annoying. They are both allergic to fleas so if I’m even a day late defleaing them they are not happy campers.

      Poor babies!! Bella is allergic to grass. She gets goopy eyes and a rash on her belly but she LOVES rolling around in the grass.

    Poor Bella! You were probably more freaked out about her toe truck ride than she was though. I would have been freaking out big time.

    What kind of flower is that? It’s beautiful!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      I think it might be a poppy.

      She’s ok and doing much better! She was racing around the yard in circles yesterday so I don’t think her paws hurt her now.

    I’m catching up on all my blogs now that I’m back in town – such a bummer about your car situation! And yeah, I hit the exact same wall with the c5k program. Someone really made a bad choice when setting up the end of week 5 and I found it really discouraging (and impossible to do). So I’m going to reset my c5k program and go back to week 2 or 3.

      It was very discouraging!! I couldn’t believe it. But oddly enough, I skipped ahead to another week and it seemed to go back to normal. Will let you know next time I run because it SHOULD be an ok pace and not just “run for 30 minutes”…what?!
