Distraction

The past two mornings, I've felt pretty nauseous, so it's been walking not running that's been on the exercise agenda. Walking allows me to get outside, get a bit of fresh air and exercise, but it doesn't exacerbate the pukiness. It's not as satisfying as a run, but I do what I can.

Evening running this time of year begins to diminish as a possibility since it gets darker earlier, and by the time Norah's in bed (granted, she goes to bed blessedly early), I don't much feel like going for a run. To the contrary, most evenings, I only want to put on pajama pants and slip into a TV coma.

So, that means I don't have much to share right now in terms of running. Instead, I figured I'd entertain you with a few of Norah's more interesting exploits as of late. She's an active little nugget and every time we turn around, she's climbing into or onto something.

Here she is trying to climb through the bar chairs: I have no clue WHY she'd be attempting this maneuever, but she got stuck in the attempt. That's all I know. Then, here she is "helping" me unload the dishwasher. I imagine her to be thinking: "Well, how else am I supposed to get to the top rack?"
And, here she is sitting in Scooter's toy basket. He was not too pleased about this. It seems nothing of his is sacred anymore. Poor dog.
He makes up for it by stealing food directly out of her hands. So, I suppose it's an even trade.

Cute!

I've been wondering, do you have blonde hair genes in your family? I apologize for my ignorance of genetics.

Scooter's angst is a front. He's probably enjoying the distractions and taking advantage of every opportunity

:-)

That bar chair photo is so funny. Why do kids try to cram themselves into odd places? Maybe they are part cat? without the whiskers.

I find the picture of Norah to be so funny in the dishwasher! Eli is obsessed with touching the dishwasher everytime it is open! Of course never when it is clean....
