All the editing yesterday! I am finished editing chapter 1, chapter 2, and part of chapter 3! I am hoping to finish chapter 3 edits today, and then just have references to work on while in Colorado. My first chapter needed the most work. I think when I started writing it, I was all over the place. Luckily the second one was a little better. I'm hoping the third on is about the same!
Life is real glamorous when you're typing all day...also, I'm always cold.
This is Aspen's chair. She sits in it ALL the time.
Started to get packed for our 3 week trip! I won't end up taking all of this, but I always set more out and then dial it down before I pack it into a bag.
I feel like this sometimes when I pack...
This is Lu's favorite spot...she usually has her head or her butt sticking out.
I haven't bought many groceries, just because I don't want things to go to waste. I cooked up some chicken breasts for my lunches this week. I put ground mustard, garlic powder, honey, and black pepper on these. They turned out REALLY yummy!
I also had a sweet potato and half an avocado. Mmmm!
I have no idea how this is comfortable, but she slept like this for a long time. My mowing shoes have been in that spot for 4 or 5 days now...maybe I should move them.
I ran some errands yesterday, which included picking up dog food. I got the girls some new toys too since I feel bad we are leaving them for so long. I also need to brush Lu's teeth, so I got some doggy toothpaste. My Dad is a dentist, soooo I might just wait and see if he wants to brush his granddog's teeth. ; ) Deal, Dad???
Then I teased them so I could get some cute pictures. You gotta do what you gotta do!! ; )
They were not pleased about posing for this...but I think it's so cute!
Then they ran away from me for the rest of the day. Eye-roll. Feelin' the love, ladies!
Okay, I KNOW this doesn't look appetizing, at all, but it really was! It's rabbit. It cooked in the crockpot for about 3 and a half hours and it was SO good. I had a front leg and a back leg, and Jake ate the REST! No joke. To be completely honest, I don't really like looking at this picture, but I wanted to show everyone what it looked like.
Much better! Jake gets really into presentation, which I love. He's good at it, too! This was my plate. Yum!
Lu eats SO fast. Then she just stares at Aspen while she eats at a normal pace. This happens EVERY time we feed them.
Guiltyyyyyy. She knew she wasn't supposed to have both toys. Also, still haven't moved those shoes!
After dinner, we met some friends to celebrate Scottie's birthday! It was so good to catch up with them!
These two are so much fun!
We were at Mother's, which is a brewery in town and they had some AMAZING live music. It was the perfect night to be outside and hang out.
Our fellas carrying our purses/wallet. So sweet. ; )
I could NOT get out of bed this morning. I slept in until 6:15, then I just couldn't seem to find anything that matched. It was one of those mornings. I was REALLY dragging. I had a pretty hard speed workout, too, so I wasn't really looking forward to that. I definitely need an early bedtime tonight.
This view. <3 Views like this make running when the sun is up so fun! It's usually dark when we run during the week, so this was a nice change.
I seriously almost died during my workout today. I did a 2 mile warm-up, then 5 by 1 minute at max speed. Ugh. It was SO hard. I had a 90 minute recovery in-between each max minute, and by the 4th one, I was struggling. My 5th max minute was a little slower than the rest, but I managed to keep my pace pretty high during the first 4. Jake writes some hardcore workouts! I had planned on doing a 2 mile running cool-down, but ended up running a slow mile, then walking the last mile back home. It was nice to relax a little and enjoy the morning. I'm looking forward to doing this workout again when I don't feel so blah in the morning. Maybe in a few weeks!
Can you tell we love Altra?? Jake laid out all our shoes this morning and they're all Altra, except my road shoes (which are changing back to Altra when I'm done with them) and Jake's cycling shoes. We might have a slight obsession...they're just SO dang comfortable. I've missed them during my runs lately. I'm also excited to break in my Altra boots!
Breakfast! Still trying to use up all our groceries, so I had two eggs scrambled with half a zucchini, half a jalapeno, some onion, and some turkey. I think we will use just about everything before we leave tomorrow.
I'm going to knock out chapter 3 today! Then I have a couple of errands to run before I finish packing. We are going to finish all the packing tonight, then go grab dinner somewhere to relax a little. We leave tomorrow when Jake gets off work! We are both excited to get to Colorado!
Happy Friday Eve, everyone!! I hope your day is wonderful!
I write about whatever is going on each day. I want to use this space as a place to document my dissertation and training journeys.
