This has been one of those weeks with a lot going on, but nothing really happening. Do you ever have weeks like that?
I’m winding up my Sally-sitting this week. I can’t believe it will have been three weeks on Friday! Time flies when your days are centered on walks, feeding, tummy scratching, and tug/toss with the ball.
This is Her Highness playing tug, or as I like to call it, Cammy Rows a Dog. Yep, in lieu of official gym workouts this week, I’ve substituted dog rows. I just pull the ball toward me and use her not insignificant body weight (I’m not judging!) for resistance. It’s especially difficult once she plants her butt on the ground.
I also had some work assignments this week and accepted a “special project” that will complicate my upcoming days. From what I understand, I’ll be visiting a national drugstore chain (rhymes with “Tall Jeans”) to demonstrate the proper usage of a new piece of book binding equipment. This will be interesting for several reasons:
a) I’ve never bound a book with anything other than staples and construction paper, and that was in the 5th grade. (Book report, if you were wondering.)
b) I’ve never seen the equipment in question.
c) I’m not particularly crafty.
But I’m pretty good at winging it, and as evidenced by this blog, I really don’t need to have expertise on a subject to discuss it.
Beautiful packaging, but I found the yogurt to be both grainy and watery. The taste wasn’t bad; it was the texture that killed it for me. Maybe it was because I bought the plain variety? I dunno, but I think I’ll stick with my yogurt trinity: Fage, Chobani, or Stonyfield/Oikos. (But boy, is that last one pricey!)
By the way, I’ve been meaning to ask if anyone has tried any new-to-you yogurt brands lately? I generally buy plain and add my own…stuff.
Finally, here’s one of those things that would be funny if it wasn’t so wrong. I received this email from AARP a few days back:
Not a nice thing to read and I was all prepared to rant on it, but then my friend Beth did it (and in a brilliantly constructive way) so I don’t have to. I can just say, “Ditto Beth”.
Needless to say, I didn’t click on the AARP link. I don’t give clicks to people who call me fat. I do give clicks to Beth.
That’s it from me this time around. Hope you’re all having a great week!
And if you have a Powerball ticket, good luck! You’ve always been my favorite reader!
