Friday's Lessons Learned: It's Friday again already?

I'm not complaining that it is Friday again, I just can't believe how quickly this week went by. I only managed one post between last Friday and this. I hate when that happens. OK, on with this week's list:

  • Losing weight feels really good, but having your "skinny" jeans (not as in the style, but as in the ones you can wear on your skinny feeling days) be too big feels downright amazing. I'm just about to start the 6th week of the competition at my gym and it has been a wonderfully motivating experience.
  • Nothing scares me like a sick or injured Zoe. On Wednesday of this week she did something to her neck. It hurt her so much that she was crying and couldn't really lift her head. At first I thought it was a muscle strain and then when it wasn't better in the morning my mind started to jump to all kinds of worst case scenarios like meningitis or something like that. I took her to the pediatrician and luckily it turned out to mild whiplash. I have no idea what she did to herself, but I think it was either from jumping on the bed or Chief pulling too hard while she was holding the leash. She's feeling much better now. Phew!
  • Saying "Calgon, take me away!" does not actually magically transport you to a luxurious bubble bath, no matter what that commercial says.

  • Chief likes to carry a tennis ball in his mouth where ever he goes. And sometimes around the house he will drop it out of his mouth and let it bounce up so he can catch it. I never saw a dog do that before. Have I mentioned that he's a great dog?
  • Meteorology is a lost art.

Congratulations on your weight loss! Of course, I think you're beautiful no matter what you weigh, but I'm worried I might not recognize you, mistaking you for Kate Moss next time I see you. And damn those Calgon ads for giving us all false hopes.

Aw, my dog does that too with his raw hide bone. He will drop it, then run after it, then run away from it - it is hilarious. And it's not like we don't play with him - he is just he is very good about playing by himself as well. Dogs are the best!

He is following in great dog footsteps! Rosie used to do that too- watch out though, sometimes they get a chew chew chewing and end up with bloody gums. Can't wait to to meet him!

Emily -- I don't think you are in any danger of mistaking me for Kate Moss, but thanks!

Courtney -- I'll have to get Chief a raw hide bone and see what happens!

HT -- If Rosie did it, then it must be the sign of a good dog!
