I slept in a little bit and then made some coffee and of course called my mother. She spent the majority of the phone call talking about government take over and the patriot act (but that's a whole other story) so that was a fun way to wake up.... B and I then had our weekly date of taking our 9 month old Pit Bull puppy to doggie school. It's pretty fun and even though Shilo (our pup) usually embarrasses us with her complete disobedience and obstinacy, I enjoy spending the time with her and B. Our dog trainer handed us chocolates for mother's day and told us that we are parents to our pets and should be acknowledged for the love and care we put into our animal babies....I thought that was really sweet.

After doggie school I decided to go to target because among other boring household items I needed to buy yet another box of OPKs. Today is CD10 so I am supposed to start peeing on the sticks again. I hate how expensive they are! I always cruise around to just see what they have (I never just grab what I came for and check out, it's always at least an hr and half affair) and guess what I found? The most awesome Pit Bull drink cup with a straw! And I actually was looking for a drink cup with a straw because B just bought a juicer and we plan on drinking a lot of juice for the next long while. I used to work in a vegetarian juice bar/restaurant and I still remember a ton of the juice recipes. I also found Pit Bull air freshener that I am excited to hang in our cars! I scored 2 pairs of sunglasses for summer as well. I have to buy sunglasses every year because I always buy cheap glasses from places like Target or Fred Meyers and they inevitably get scratched in my purse or the kids I nanny for step on them, etc.

After shopping I came home and forced myself to go on a run. We live 2 blocks from a beautiful running trail and I am trying to get back to the running routine I had before I broke my foot in Nov. I was in an air cast boot for 2 months and when I got out of it all the bones in my foot were frozen in place. I have done a ton of physical therapy and soft tissue massage since Jan. It got in the way of fertility treatments because I had orthopedic Dr. appts., Physical therapy appts. and massage appts. taking up all my time and focus. Anyway, that's over and I am now back to dancing and running at pretty much the same level I was before my injury. So I took Shilo for a 4 mile run (we stopped a lot to work on some dog training) and got some exercise which ALWAYS makes me feel better about everything!
Now my husband is begging and whining for me to give him a hair cut and I guess I have to since he gave our old senior dog a bath and that was our deal. Do I know how to cut hair? Nope. He is just too lazy/cheap to go to a salon/barber shop. I have been cutting his hair for almost 11 years and so far there have only been a few really bad cuts, ha ha!
p.s I tried to get B to let me take a picture of his new hair cut but he denied me....sorry! It turned out to be a pretty good one!
