Annoying Dog is Annoying

He's snapping his teeth at us, his indicator that we have failed him utterly. I put on the coals this afternoon and cooked up some BBQ chicken, but it took longer than anticipated and so he didn't get his full-length walk. Woe is dog.

I had dug out my old Sharper Image stair-stepper exerciser, and did 25 minutes on it yesterday. I was pleased with myself, so I took it out to work out again today. I did three minutes and then suddenly the hydraulics failed and the steps dropped, never to rise again. Well, phoo. It did last many years (of course, when I belonged to a gym I didn't use it often), as indicated by how long it's been since Sharper Image went out of business, but still -- annoying. So I'm poking around on Amazon to see which ones get the best reviews. It looks like none of them are destined to last forever, but one that I can shove behind the couch is the only way I can go, since we have NO PLACE in this house to put a real ellipsis (which I'd love, if only we had the space).

I can't think of what to dress as for Halloween.

I find more and more that despite a vast collection of cookbooks, these days I tend to reach for the computer and just Google a recipe (or find one I downloaded and never bothered to print).

Suddenly I'm exhausted and my brain just stopped working. Maybe it's time for bed.

Animals think we do nothing for them at all.

Oh don't I know it. I'm waiting for the histrionics when I don't make it home until bed time tonight

Well, our problems are very small compared to the Dangerous One!

Hugs!
