Elsie is obsessed with ball chasing, and can be a tad nervous about things.
(although you'd never know it by this picture)
Bosco is a ladies man and could care less about chasing balls.
He flirts with customers in my store, and holds the couch down.
Not a day goes by when these two do not make us laugh.
Our home is a happier one with them in it.
In other news, I finally feel like I'm getting my creative mojo back! Yippee! I went through a bit of a dry spell as of late....tired, unmotivated and unfocused. BLECH. Some big things have changed in my life over the past few months. I started playing roller derby last fall! As a result, I'm healthier, stronger (lost 25 pounds and counting), and having a blast! My team is the Cedar Rapids Rollergirls....check us out!!!
Here's a picture of me in my jersey before my first bout....I was excited, and nervous as hell!!! Ha! But it is such a fabulous group of women, who have taught me so much. I would never trade this experience for anything. We are all so different....our backgrounds, our lifestyles, etc. But it's yet another example of people coming and working together for a common goal.
In addition to all the skating, I've been doing a lot of strength training, running and other activities that have me feeling the best I ever have. Grateful for this body that is working and cooperating, with the exception of a little ache or pain here and there! Lovin Man has really taken off with getting fit too....and we plan to run our first 5k next weekend....a COLOR RUN!!!! Is there a better 5k for a color loving girl?? I think not!!!!
We are excited to see family and friends this holiday week. There will be some grilling, some playing, some sparklers, fireworks, a baseball game....We love the 4th!!! Wishing you and yours an excellent holiday week!!!
