Puppers, Presents and Black Ice - Oh My!

Hi, Friends! Thank you for your comments and support of my little sesamoid issue and now, my need to switch it up and find some new cardio for 2011 - woo! I'm already excited about classes. I just need to do it - and with an HRM I can still figure how hard i'm working which helps SO much. So... here's some pics I took last night!

my babies
Little Remy shows off her new outfit I found in Chicago (best place for winter dog clothes BTW)
She considers jumping off of the chair
She settles in next to brother Reuben - happy to be near him....
he doesn't exactly feel the same way... hehe

So he gets down and of course now she wants to get back down again!
Austin is a poodle whisperer (check out Reuben's tongue hehe he LOVES to give kisses)
I mean really - the poodles adore him
We wrapped all of our presents. Now we're excited to give them out!!

Here's yesterday in a nutshell:
  • Running late for work and get there... no laptop! (first time in 5 years of working there that I left it... wow).
  • Austin meets me with laptop and I get to work 1.5 hours later than normal. AWESOME.
  • I work.
  • I take a late lunch and walk 4 miles.
  • I work late (until 6:30) to make up for the time I lost in the a.m.
  • I drive through LOTS of black ice. I HATE feeling out of control behind the wheel. And even though I left long after rush hour, it still takes me an hour to get home. Glad i'm enjoying my audio book! (James Patterson's Beach Road)
  • It's now 7:30, not going to the gym, going to EAT instead.
  • And wrap presents.
  • And take pictures of my puppers.
  • And enjoy the fire.
  • And have a couple of beers with Austin.
Another GREAT family night!

Q: Have you ever driven on black ice? I'm sure it's happened before my but new car terrifies me with this orange button that flashes confirming my fear that yes, I have no control over the vehicle! Scare Bear!

Q: Have you wrapped your presents yet? Do you enjoy wrapping? We divide and conquer - Austin usually wraps and I do bows, ribbons and name tags. Or we wrap together - me doing tape and then us each taking an end! :)

We get a lot of black ice here and I agree completely - so scary!

Black ice freaks me out!!!! I hate driving when there is ice. I'm definitely one of those nervous GA drivers.

And exciting about the new workouts.

Sounds like your day was about like mine yesterday... so hectic! I was running late as well and stayed late, only to find scary weather when I left. Yikes!

Oh my gosh I love those puppies! They are too darn cute. I hate black ice and I am so glad I don't have to drive in it anymore. And, I am proud to brag that all my presents are wrapped!! Woo hoo!

Anne Marie said...

I hate any kind of ice. It makes driving very unenjoyable. I would freak out if my car confirmed my fear too!

Mica said...

I have not driven on black ice. I had an ice-related accident a few years ago, and I'm terrified of winter driving.

I just ordered a lot of presents, so let's hope that they arrive in time for me to wrap them!

The pups look great!

Gabriela said...

OMGosh little Remy in that dress....I die. And I haven't even gotten the gifts, yet alone wrapped them!! Eeek!!

Hope said...

Oh my! The puppies are BEYOND cute!!! I want one so bad!! :)

I hate driving on black ice. The worst part like you said, is feeling out of control. I don't like loosing control while driving. It is really scary.
