When the financing on our first house fell through, I was most disappointed forâ€¦ the dogs. After five years of living in apartments, we were excited to finally â€˜giveâ€™ the dogs a yard. I had promised James, in particular, that he would be able to play outside all day long, and I feel a little guilty that I didnâ€™t come through on my promise.
Instead, Iâ€™ve been waking up a little earlier every day so I can take James on a nice, long walk. We used to do as â€˜long as necessaryâ€™ in the morning and a longer walk at night, but now we do a longer walk in the AM and the PM. Good for me, good for James. Everyone wins.
I think I walked him a bit too long today, though (40 minutes â€“ Go James!) because he was pooped when we got back to the house.
In case youâ€™re thinking that Iâ€™m playing favorites, trust me â€“ Maggie doesnâ€™t want to go on 40 minute walks. Her legs are too short.
Remember the SAT analogy questions?
And I donâ€™t do ultras.
Before our walk, I had a glass of orange juice, a cup of coffee, a cup of water, and a cup of coconut water. Holy hydration.
And afterwards, breakfast, which was prepared by the Husband.
Over easy eggs on toast with Mmmm Sauce (obviously), fruit, and Field Roast sausages, which I kind of picked at. Sometimes I love faux meat and sometimes it grosses me out.
Have a wonderful FRIDAY!
