Ode to my dog

I'm slacking.  I know I should blog more than I do.  I don't want to say it's laziness per se... but that's probably what it is.  Even Miss SuperMoM, Jen, keeps up with her blogging with two widdle baybees vying for her attention.  I have no excuse.

One of these days, I will write a meaningful post.  Everyone in the blogging world is posting these amazing, heartfelt posts that make me cry, and I'm over here like, "Let me tell you more about my vagina."  Sheesh.  Awe-inspiring post coming soon.  I promise.

I'm just so burned out with school.  35 more days, but it seems like it's much more.  Take today.  What should have been my day off, started out with an hour and a half commute to school in a blizzard, class all day, and now I am supposed to be working on my last paper tonight while Chris is in class.  April 22nd needs to come NOW.  Will I work on my paper tonight?  I'm still debating.

In news about my fatness, I am down 4 pounds.  I'm not quite comfortable prancing around in my lingerie or anything, but it's a start.  I have maintained, and gained this past year, but never lost.  So that's quite an accomplishment for me. Chris and I went to the gym this weekend for the first time in forever three months.  I ran the track for a half hour.  Seriously, I don't know why I am so lazy when it comes to going to the gym.  Really, has anyone ever came home from the gym and said, "Well that was a complete waste of time!"?

"Let me intimidate you with my snow-face!"
We did get a chance to get our snow dog out for a few walks this weekend.  Seriously, this dog loves the snow.  We have a big park a few blocks from our house with a quarter-mile, or so, walking path.  There is rarely anyone out there, so we let Toby loose, and let him run, pee, snort, paw, and sniff in the snow to his heart's content.  Man, this dog loves snow.

Walking with my husband is my stress-reliever.  We usually go on walks for an hour every night and it's our time to reconnect with each other.  We talk about our treatments, but we also talk about other things too.  There may be a foot of snow on the ground, but it doesn't stop us from planning out the details of our garden expansion, or the vegetables we will plant this spring.

Gazing into the abyss?... or... sees a bunny.
These pictures weren't actually taken this weekend.  This was from another equally snowy walk from two weeks ago.  But I thought the icicles hanging off his chin gave a good illustration into how bat-shit crazy this dog gets in the winter.

But I love him.  So very much.  He's my fur-baby.

Sorry this post is all over the place.  Nothing much goes down in the 2WW.

Still remaining positive though.
