Today much of my TThinking Out Loud centers around Chester, which I suppose is only natural. Except there was that little side trip into s’mores land . . .
Don’t search for healthy smores mug cake on Pinterest
Trust me on this. It will lead you down a rabbit hole you really don’t want to go down (not if you’re really interested in healthy mug cakes, that is).
The night I kicked Chester out of bed
I’m not quite sure what happened Monday night. I remember I was trying to get my foot out from under the covers and the next thing I knew I heard Chester hitting the floor.
No, he wasn’t hurt.
Did I actually kick him out of bed or did he just take it as a signal that it was time to go outside?
We’ll never know.
It was only midnight, by the way. And we ended up going out again in about 3 hours. Then getting up (and him going out again) another hour and a half later.
I still don’t see how new mothers do it, but they’re usually not in their mid 50s, either!
Tuesday it was supposed to be freezing rain in the morning, turning to rain in the afternoon. Except it never warmed up enough to turn to rain. I wanted to take Chester in, but I really didn’t think it was safe enough and this was the text exchange between me & the vet assistant:
Who knows; maybe a drink would do him wonders!
Staying up to midnight?
I never stay up to midnight. Normally I’m up by 4 am, so really, what’s the point in exhausting myself?
Except lately I’ve been up at 2 am and 3 am with Chester most nights.
I’m trying to work out if I stay up til midnight and keep him up til then whether he’d let me sleep later.
But who am I kidding, I would never last that long and he’d probably still wake me up at 3 am!
A 31 Minute 5k is a 10 mm pace
Well, d’oh! Why did it never occur to me that 3.1 x 10 = 31 minutes? So why is the 30 minute 5k the holy grail, or so it seems?
So now that I’ve thrown out that that’s my goal, it’s a bit daunting, I must say. But I have been close. And if I’ve been close, that probably means it is doable.
Finally, of course, Happy New Year
Wishing all my blogging friends a happy, safe New Year’s Eve and a fantastic 2016. I’ve so enjoyed connecting with new people over the last 6 months!
Do you stay up to midnight? Go out? Celebrate at home?
I’m linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for her:
