I am so tired! I decided last night to let myself take a day off from exercise today and sleep in a little, which was kind of nice 😀
I was out late last night doing dog training and then shopping for that last minute outfit. FYI – we don’t own a dog, just this goober:
I am helping my sister do obedience with one of her Clumber Spaniels. I somehow volunteered myself for this…. It’s every Wednesday night. My parents are also there with their new lab Lizzie.
I made up pumpkin custard oats for breakfast today. I will do a step-by-step post for this on Friday.
Yum! Worked in the morning until it was time to meet the photographer. I have decided not to post actual photos of the shoot itself, as I don’t want the publisher to get upset. They did not tell me not to post anything, but probably prudent not to. Here are just a few of getting ready:
Colleen met me there to take pictures for me! Yay! John came as well. 2 ladies in their early 40s, can’t you tell?
The photographer, whose name is Sara, brought along a makeup artist 😯 Wasn’t expecting that. I was freaking out that it was too much makeup:
Eeek! I’m all worried here.
I put my foot down on the lipstick, though. Who wears lipstick to the gym?
I had a very good time – it was fun when we got started. Once the issue comes out, I’ll share pictures of the goings on. Sorry! Here I am chatting with Sara:
I’m talking to her about taking pictures. I was drooling over her camera! Sara does a lot fitness editorials, although much swankier than my gym based on her website! She was fun to work with and very nice. I think she is someone I would like to hang out with if she didn’t live in NYC!
Then it was back to work. Although I never look like this going to work:
Could I make my eyes any bigger? John was saying how strange it looked to see me so made up. I am an au naturale girl, for the most part.
Sigh….. Hopefully things will calm down a bit now. Life has been topsy-turvy since the end of January! Trying to work full time on top of all this has been really hard. I am going to have to work on Friday, which means another short weekend for me.
John was given the message to take me out to dinner because I was all tarted made up. So we went out for a super expensive cheap pizza joint dinner:
Broccoli and cheese wheat pizza wrap. Yay! I got in my broccoli 😀

Routines are good and it is going to feel really good to get back into my normal. My life has been so incredibly full lately. I am really looking forward to just going out for some coffee with John, sitting quietly and talking this weekend.
Need to work for a while tonight, then it will be electric blanket, flannel jammies, and the olympics! How’s that for relaxation?
Question: How do you relax?
