Five on Friday #63
UNOI posted about this on Teh Blog page, but I'm going to repost it here because it's pretty serious to me.
It's no secret how much I love dogs. In addition to all the adorable dog photos and the FB Trending section telling me it was #NationalDogDay, THREE people asked me if I was aware that it was Dog Day yesterday (I assume because my lack of dog posts).
What I hadn't realized was that it was also the anniversary of the 19th Amendment being incorporated into the Constitution, something that is pretty near and dear to this female-parts-owner.
When I saw #WomensEqualityDay was the 26th in TODAY'S (the 27th) Trending section I was sad. #WeCanDoBetter #YesAllWomen
I feel like a feminist failure for not even realizing. Then again, I live in a bubble, so it's really not surprising. Additionally, if it's not on my calendar, it doesn't exist in my life. I was pretty proud of myself for my restraint on posting dog-smut. I posted my daily dog photo on instagram and that was that, I didn't even use the dog day hashtag.
We live in a world that dogs > women's rights remembrance. That makes me sad on the inside.
DOSI went to my first chiropractor appointment (of many more to come) yesterday. It was soooo good. All the right pops, in all the right places. Since it was my initial visit, the doc also chatted with me about my issues and took some xrays. Not only did he compliment me on my ability to take awesome xrays, we got along swimmingly.
When he was going over my xrays (btw I love looking at any type of "imagery" I can analyze. Thanks, Navy) he explained where my problem spots were.. which was more than just my bulging disk in my lower back, to include my mid-back, some spots of arthritis forming, and my neck not having a curve like it should. After going over my xrays and lots of jokes, he adjusted me and oh my all the pops. Soooo loud, soooo good, sooo many.
I'll be seeing him on a weekly basis for the near future and I'm excited about all the pops in my future. That said, I feel pretty achy today. I'm just hoping that my runs this weekend will feel good after the adjustment and my shoulders stay loose.
TRESTeh German and I are still doing our thing. Besides his adorable accent, I'm also smitten with the fact that he does the dishes if I cook dinner after we finish eating, he uses hashtags, he makes me feel sexy (remember when I was worried that wouldn't happen again?), we workout (sometimes together #win), he is accepted by the dogs, his friends told us to get a room, we make a great team, we frequently think the same thing at the same time (which is simultaneously creepy and cute), and he continues to quiet my brain and make me laugh constantly.
Not that I checked (ok, I totally did), but the 2nd will be 1 month since
All that said, I'm constantly fighting the "is it too soon?" battle in my head. Is this love or lust? I know that no one but he and I can answer those questions, but I still struggle with my past sometimes and I've been burned before trying to talk about these things so I hesitate to discuss/bring them up. I know I need to better about moving past that, but I give myself the excuse it's only a been a month and Turbo, here, needs to slow her roll.
QUATROI signed up for the Reddit Teacher Exchange and was super pumped to get matched. The teacher I was matched with had a pretty generic list of things she wanted (pens/pencils/dry erase markers/cleaning stuffs) so I messaged her and asked if she had come up with more specific items she was looking for. After 2 days of getting no response, I went ahead and ordered $50 in stuff from Amazon that she had listed.
2 hours after I placed the order, she finally responded to my message, listing different items than in her original request. I was straight up with her and said I had already ordered the stuff a few hours before but hopefully she still enjoyed it.
This is 2015, when someone messages you, respond promptly. 2 days isn't prompt. Because of her delay, she will not be receiving my annual "special" gift of mini liquor bottles to get her through the tough days. Also, I'm poor. So 2 reasons for that, but mostly because lack of proper communication skills. If I had signed up for free stuff, you better believe if I got a message about it I'd be looking at it asap. Few things in life are more important than free shit.
CINCOI'm BSing cinco because I've been sitting here for over an hour pinning sappy stuff and I can't find anything funny enough to share and I think it's past time to get this posted. I have weekend to get to! Yay for a possibly lazy weekend, even if it rains, that means lots of naps.... :)
Happy Friday, Gentle Readers.
Linking up with these ladies since it's FFFFRRRRRRIIIIIIDDDDAAAAYYYY!!!!!!!!!
