Feel Better Noah

I'm too lazy to write in paragraph form so here's a list of how my day went.

  1. Noah has a cold; he's teething a molar; and he's not sleeping well.
  2. The fact that I am writing this is a testament to my survival skills when living with the Beast.
  3. One of the Beast's toys was not so lucky and will probably not make it out of the toy hospital.
  4. I was itching to workout since I hadn't been to the gym in a few days so I decided to go for a run on the treadmill.
  5. Dakota came to the basement with me to keep me company.
  6. I love my dog.
  7. My basement is creepy, especially when I'm home alone.
  8. Dakota was looking out for me; and I think he's also kinda scared of the treadmill.  I don't know if he thought I was trapped, but he kept coming as close to me as he could, as if he was trying to figure out a way to get me off of it.
  9. I ran a mile and a half then started feeling chest pain and couldn't breathe.  I wanted to keep running, but I thought passing out in the basement from an asthma attack while home alone was probably not the best idea.
  10.  I need to teach Dakota how to dial 911...or give CPR. 
  11. Currently I'm wearing a hoodie, my fluffy pink robe and some sweat pants.
  12. I'm still freezing.
  13. I'm not sure I'm going to survive winter.
  14. The fact that The Farmer's Almanac is throwing around words like frigid and numbing cold doesn't give me much hope.
  15. I'm almost done Christmas shopping.
  16. I've very excited about the babies Christmas gifts.
  17. I'm not excited about wrapping presents.
  18. I get stressed and frustrated and my presents end up getting shafted
  19. But it's what inside that counts right?  When you see a balled up mess of wrapping paper and tape, you might think you're getting the worst present ever.  But maybe you're getting that espresso machine you've been longing for or a giant Nerf football. 
  20. I'm going to curl up on the couch with a cup of hot tea and my blanket.  

Have a great weekend and stay warm people.  Oh, and please keep your furry pets inside where it's nice and toasty.

 Sad Beast

 Picture is blurry.  I was trying to snap a picture quick before he moved.  I love it when he sleeps with his paw over his face.  It's so stinkin' cute.

He wasn't impressed that I woke him up.  Sorry, Dakota.  Go back to sleep.
