POOOOOOWWWWWWEEEERRRRRR DDDDAAAAYYYYYY

My fave!


The weather has been absolute shit. Didn't ride bikes yesterday. Chris rode the trainer, but I didn't.... instead I ordered and picked up dinner for us. Had every intention of folding the MOUNTAIN OF LAUNDRY that is in our living room, but I didn't do that either. The mountain remains and rises ever higher... like some sort of real time sweat-wicking geological marvel emerging from the floor. If we took the time to dissect it, we may be able to identify different strata. 


9 years ago today, Chris and I got engaged at the finish line of IMWI 2011; in an effort to TAKE BACK THE DAY!

Those of you following the Tour may have seen Peter Sagan's maneuver at the sprint end of yesterday's stage. He came in second on the stage, but due to his "argy-bargy", he was relegated, lost whatever points he won, PLUS he lost an additional 13 points. He was ALSO fined 500 CHF. I agree that the move was... questionable. Peter doesn't usually operate that way, but I'm wondering if he's becoming desperate. I am also wondering why the fines are in Swiss Franks v. Euros, but, I guess that's not my problem. It's PETER'S! 

My BFF here is quickly running out of real estate and time. If he thinks he can win the green jersey this year he's going to have to be in every break away for the remainder of the tour. Let's go Peter! 

Who? Me?

Yes. You. Green Means GO!

Endurance. I think being lighter is making running easier. Who knew...? I mean aside from every single paper thin runner?

Molly has her follow up appointment regarding her heart meds today. A non emergency pre-scheduled appointment. 

Where you takin' me, hooman? 


I had to give Molly Gabapentin again in preparation for her visit. She was SEDATED. I gave her 1/4 of a capsule (which is HALF what I gave her last time). She's just too small. The vet told me she needs the diuretic again and we're going to supplement that with Vitamin K (Potassium). She doesn't have a pleural effusion, she has an effusion in her body cavity, so this COULD BE making it difficult for her to breathe. I have not noticed any strained breathing and I count her respirations nightly. Anyway, I started the diuretic last night along with her other pills, and she wet the bed (and me). The diuretic flushes all of her potassium and makes her weak. This combined with the Gabapentin made it nearly impossible for her to get up to pee in the middle of the night. I think we may only do the diuretic therapy once or twice a week. And only in the morning. 

I woke up with wet sheets and thought it was from a hot flash. LOL. My first response was not that Molly peed on me. #thisis50

So many steps all over the zoo.

So.... today's the day! I met my brother and his family. I don't have words that accurately describe how I feel about it all. All of the regular English words sort of fail. We didn't take as many photos as I would have liked, but we got some... 

Molly even sat on Avery's lap. ---------------------------------------------------------------^^^^^^^^^^^
