Monday Musings

Another weekend gone!  I spent this weekend resting!  Muffin, on the other hand, was riding his bike like crazy.  He's training for a century (100 mile ride) in September and is riding hours upon hours each day to get ready.

Here's our weekend in review:


On Friday, I had to go to my orthopedic doctor to have some pain in my elbow checked out. Turns out I have tendonitis in my right arm and had a necessary and painful shot in my elbow.  The best thing, however, is my new attractive accessory:  an armband!  I get to wear it every day to help me do tasks like writing, typing, cooking, etc. for 6 weeks!  Anybody have a bedazzler to make this thing cuter?

Friday evening, Daniel and I attended Katilin's (our 13 year old niece) marching band preview. I'm really impressed with her drive with band and loved getting to see the group perform. They did really well!

If you can't tell, it was slightly overcast!  But the weather held out for them.

We all went out to frozen yogurt afterwards, and I FINALLY decided to try Boba Poppers on my mango sorbet.  They are always at frozen yogurt places, and I know that they are in bubble tea, but I've never given them a chance.  I was pleasantly surprised!

I love spending time with my nieces, so this was a fun evening!


Saturday is where it all started going downhill for me!  I didn't believe the nurse at the orthopedic office when she told me this would be the most painful shot I've ever received.  I've had two knee surgeries, shots with both, and have a high pain tolerance.  She had to be kidding right?  WRONG!!!!  My arm was basically immobilized by pain!

Luckily, we invested in a really neat ice pack that wraps around your arm like a bandage.  Muffin was wonderful and helped me open drawers, doors, and cabinets because my dominant right arm was useless.

You can find one here.
I took this opportunity to have a serious House marathon. I'm addicted, and though Muff acts like he's not, he will sit down and watch a few minutes and ask me to recap the entire plot line.  Mr. "I hate TV" always wants to know about the stuff I'm powerstreaming!

I know I'm late to the party on this one, but it's just SO GOOD.  I am watching house via Netflix.  If you don't have Netflix, you should check it out here.


Sunday I continued taking it easy.  I had some more great snuggle time with my sweet puppies, and was able to work on some "tricks" with Luna.  She's working on Sit, Free, Loose Leash Walking, and I've snuck some Downs in there as well.  She, like Lucy and Lola, is attending Puppy Class at PetSmart.  Luna has tons of energy, and I'm proud of her progress.

We continued our House marathon and got some serious family snuggles with all 3 puppies!  It was wonderful.

Yep, Miss Lola needs a SERIOUS BATH!

We ended the night with some Smoked Salmon.  You can find our recipe here.

I hope everyone else had a good weekend!
