Working out with...

Every Monday morning I head to Edmond for a workout class taught by my good friend Elizabeth. All of the ladies have a good time in the class and we often get to make fools of ourselves in front of everyone else in the gym and this morning was no exception. As it was my turn to do froggers (imagine a frog on a bench). As I walked toward my station to do the exercise I couldn't help but pray that the two men directly behind the station would hurry and leave. No luck! So, they got a nice view of my rear end during this exercise and the next couple of ladies after me. Apparently men have no concept of making women feel uncomfortable in the gym. We got to workout with an audience this morning.

embarrassing exercise to do in public:

1. walk like a monkey
2. pull a sled like a pack mule
3. climb a rope with Elizabeth yelling "come on" so everyone in the gym will watch
4. froggers

Book junkie!

I found out today that one of my favorite books "The Host" by Stephenie Myer is going to be made into a movie. Love it! If you like Sci-fi this is a great read and unlike most adult books is very clean. I had Todd listen to the book when we traveled to Arizona earlier this year and he really like the book too.

I have become quite the book junkie so if anyone has info on more good reads send it my way. I would love to write a book. Maybe someday I will get my act together and work on one for fun.

Dogs have a wonderful little ways to make you feel loved. I took a nap the other day on the couch and woke up to find three dogs snuggling with me. Reese was curled against my belly, Seida was cradled in the nook of my bent legs and Chloe was pushed up against my feet. I couldn't help but smile when woke up. I hope you are cherishing little moments like this with the people and animals in your life.

Mud, Mud go away!

Well, we are definitely not short on rain around Oklahoma. We have had rain out here at our house everyday this week. Let me just say that it is a mud pit around here. I have spent a lot of time lately cleaning mud off the floor, dogs, and everything in between. The rain doesn't seem to dampen the dogs fun though (as long as there is no thunder). Days like this make me very grateful when the sun makes its appearance again.

Thursday night

Thursdays I have agility class with Miss Chloe but decided to take Seida and Wicket along too. Reese had to stay home with Dad and his crazy itchy self. Last night was the first time we pulled into the drive at the field and Wicket squealed because he was so excited to be there. Seida got to go on a walk with me in the big fenced in field all by herself and had a blast. Miss Chloe was wonderful in class, she is such a fun dog to work with. Then of course there is Wicket the wild may that when let out flies at 90 mph around the arena. We did tunnels with Wicket for the first time and he loved it. FYI, if there are extra letters in this post Reese is helping me type.

Labor Day Lazy

This Labor Day I stayed in town. The last few years I have gone to MO for part of the weekend for an agility trail. Since I am going to be gone or busy every weekend from here til next year I decided I wanted to spend one last lazy day with my hubby Todd. Unfortunately, Todd ended up with a cold and wasn't up to doing too much. Todd had his 31st birthday on the 6th! His Mom and Dad got him a very nice old man rocker for our porch. They like to tease him about being old now. :) We went and watched GI Joe. It was a good action movie (we like action). The rest of the time we just hung out being lazy, working on a few things around the house, and hanging with our four favorite dogs.

A friend did some pictures of all my dogs last week. I thought I would share them with you.
