Ahem. Happy Tuesday! Err, at least it's not Monday, huh? Today feels like Monday to me because I have several things to do today that I'd rather pass on.
The day did start off well, though, since not only did I make some berry oatmeal,
But Haruki made nice with a neighbor dog named Chance.
"Nice" for Haruki is relative to her trying to kill the other dog, since she still has some...behavioral issues. Mostly, she's just a spoiled, adolescent brat when it comes to playing. Here is Chance:

Here is Haruki not understanding that having friends = sharing:
I think she has some kind of dog Only Child syndrome. We are *this* close to medicating her:-)
After watching Haruki taunt Chance, I headed down to town for a Body Pump class at my gym. Then, I ate lunch in my car
Seriously, how do you save face when you're sucking marrow out of a cow bone? This seems like the kind of activity that would automatically make you seem out of place in a swanky restaurant.

*What do you all think about the name Oliver for a boy? I am _not_ pregnant, but David and I are discussing baby names. I like Oliver because I want to have a chubby toddler who I can call "Ollie" and dress in slightly too-tight navy blue corduroys. Is that selfish? Will an Oliver get beaten up in middle school?
