Hi, friends!

So, this is actually the second time I am writing this blog post since the first one got eaten up by the WordPress app on my phone/it doesn’t agree with the server at Dreamhost. I don’t know what happened exactly, but I finished this post at 3:45 AM this morning and when I went to publish it this morning, it reverted to the old version. *Sigh* It was super annoying. Anyway…

On Monday, I ended up having a super active day! Q and I ran 2.5 miles at Southfield and then we went for a 45-minute walk with Murphy (it was such a beautiful day) and then I went to CrossFit that evening. Holy activity, right? And, of course, I stopped for an iced coffee on the way home. Local readers: The White Chocolate Chip (milk, one sugar) at 1st Stop Coffee on route 18 is the BOMB! I think it’s even better than Marylou’s!

After a super active Monday, I decided to take it easy on Tuesday, so I took a leisurely 2-mile stroll with Q and Murphy at the dog park. I listened to podcasts and enjoyed the morning. It was quite a lovely way to start the day!

On the way home from the park, I grabbed an iced coffee and then spent the rest of morning hanging out with my favorite little dude, who turned 3 months old yesterday.

Unfortunately, the afternoon actually ended up being kind of stressful for us since Q had a meltdown (thank goodness for strollers and nice weather!)…


And Murphy had to deal with the mailman and the FedEx guy. I know, I know… his life is so hard.

Mail deliveries to our house are quite stressful for the pug.

When Murphy hears the FedEx/UPS truck coming, he immediately runs to the door and starts barking like a freak. Mal and I have tried so many times to correct his bad behavior, but it hasn’t really worked. Murphy just gets SO EXCITED and won’t listen. The mailman actually seems to like Murphy and sometimes gives him a Milk Bone, but the poor FedEx and UPS guys… I feel so embarrassed every time they come to the house and Murphy spazzes out. So, yea, that was the most stressful part of Murphy’s day.

Please note the bottom two photos. Murphy is STILL barking at the FedEx guy even as he drives away. What a freak.
