Riley the Helper


30 minutes on stationary bike @ a snails pace/ Abs

My glute isn’t really feeling much better/different than it did last Monday… even after a freakin week of rest. SO. I have decided to try and incorporate super light exercise. I know biking for 30 minutes at a leisurely pace isn’t going to build any fitness, but the point is to gradually introduce the running movement back into my butt’s life. Hopefully, this will help, but who knows. If anything it will help keep me sane, haha.


Today, Riley and I got a lot of chores done around the house… I unloaded the dishwasher, cleaned the sinks, swiffered the floors and vacuumed the house, while Riley hid under the bed, haha. I don’t know why she is still afraid of the vacuum.


Umm ya… so Riley ripped apart the underlining of our bed years ago and since it’s UNDER the bed, no one sees it and we aren’t fixing it. Anywho… we then headed outside to sweep and pick weeds. Riley took this time to chase lizards out of all the bushes. One of them ran up the house and she literally backed up and jumped up the side of the house. I wish I could have gotten a video of it! At least I got a lot of weeds picked πŸ™‚


I really wish Riley could chase away the damn mosquitoes! I swear they are attracted to me like ants are to candy. Todd never gets bit, but I get eaten alive πŸ™ I think I have a mild allergic reaction to their bites. Seriously, look at how huge they swell up… and NO, I don’t scratch them… too much πŸ˜‰ And don’t mind Ry’s toy under the chair. OH! I read a status on FB that dryer sheets can help detract mosquitoes but I forgot to try it out. Dang it.


Since we were already sweaty and gross, we headed up to a near by school to play. The drainage there is HORRIBLE and she loves splashing in the water!


Riley likes to pose for the camera, too. Not. I was just lucky enough to catch her in the act of eyeing a squirrel!

IMGP0097I love my dogter!

Are mosquitoes attracted to you?

How obsessed are you with your pet/s?

  1. Ohhh my gosh Riley is SO cute and I’m not even really a dog person!! LOVEE these photos. I am obsessed with my cats, but you already knew that..bahaha.

  2. What a cutie! My dog isn’t afraid of vaccines but he hates the staple gun. He hides under the bed whenever he thinks I’m using it.
