Work It Out: Alarm Clock!

Workout: 2 mile run in 19 minutes

Check it out bloggies, my new alarm clock!

I finally got it yesterday! However, it was only after I was about to step out of Walmart (without a lot of unnecessary stuff) and head for my car. I had to go back and get it, luckily there was no line!

I also picked up some new shoes for my BB.

The sandals weren't doing their job and she was able to take them off as soon as she set her little mind to it - the socks never stood a chance. I went with sneakers instead, we shall see if they work any better!

Any tips for keeping shoes/socks on babies?

I was all excited last night when I was setting my alarm, but then I realized that I may need to return it. It's missing the tab to cover the battery and the radio picks up absolutely nothing. The only reason I got it was because it was mp3 ready and had the alarm wake-up to radio setting! Fist pump!!!

Note to self: check the volume of the alarm when setting it.

That's right, I didn't wake up until 5:30 and when I walked in to the bathroom I could barely hear the alarm still going. Oh well, you live and you learn.

I was still able to get outside and run 2 miles in perfect weather! I've been running on the treadmill so this was a very welcome change!

On a totally different subject, I got roped into watching the second showing of Marley & Me last night because you just can't say no to a cute Lab!

Specially since I have had my fair share of Marley moments, including one last night. This brings us to my second note to self: don't buy any squeaker toys for Abacus!

Abacus was playing with his new rubber duck, which he loved! It stopped squeaking for maybe 10 seconds when I noticed he had already ripped the little beak off when I got to him. I couldn't tell if there was a squeaker inside or not, but if there was, it was nowhere to be found.

I had learned (from a previous Marley moment) that you can give dogs some hydrogen peroxide if you want to induce vomiting. Trying to give peroxide to a 90+ lb dog is not fun, trust me! What's a gal to do? Must.use.trickery!

I soaked two pieces of bread and layered some turkey and my poor Abacus ate it! He threw up twice but no squeaker could be found, so we're officially on the poop watch. Fun, fun, fun!

Have you had any Marley moments?

ADios :)

Your new alarm clock is so sassy - love it!

We've had plenty of Marley moments. Denali has eaten a bubble pack of Claritin, a half-tub of margarine (the giant size) and a bottle of green food coloring. We've learned to just let things work themselves out:/ Hope Abacus does OK!
