If you live in the area I live in chances are you've probably seen me before, but you probably don't remember. I'm not someone who stands out because I don't scream for attention and I'm very good at not tripping over things in public places (most of the time). But for about 30mins this last wednesday I was sure, if you saw me you'd remember me.
Have you ever tried to rollerblade through snow, ice, and slush well being pulled at a million miles per second by an excited black lab who is dead set on going through EVERY puddle she sees? Okay, well even though I may have exaggerated the speed a little... It's TONS of fun.
Maybe a little risky... Forget to jump over a clump of slush... and... I wouldn't know. (insert embaressed face here).
At least I didn't fall on my face...
I call it AWESOME ROLLERBLADING! Mostly because I can't think of anything else right now... I'll get back to you. (i'm accepting suggestions)
So last week, I mentioned I helped with Bella (the black lab mix up for adoption with 4 Luv of dog) at Adoption days. Well, after seeing her with obviously way too much energy to handle all the excitment of new dogs and people I decided I should probably try and commit more time to make sure Bella gets excersize even though I'm usually dead tired by the time I get home and have a dog of my own to take care of. (why do I have to be such a good person?).
So, due to lack of time and energy and I decided that spring was here whether it looked like it or not and I was bringing out my rollerblades, ignoring the looks from my family, I went to take Bella out for a run.
First 15minutes? Holding on for dear life.
Apparently I held on well enough because I'm telling you about it, though I wont lie, while one half of me was having a ton of fun, the other half was saying "How stupid are you? Rollerblading? NOW? There's snow on the ground for goodness sakes!"
I ignored my sensible thoughts and swerved to avoid another puddle while Bella splashed through it anyways.
Here is Bella on the last 5minutes, the slowest she went the entire time. it's a bit dark out when I took the video so hopefully you can see it okay:
I want to end this post with a picture of my killer dog and me, though I hate pictures of me... I want people to understand a little better why I put up with him, because you don't see who he really is.
I am joy in a wooly coat, come to dance into your life, to make you laugh!-Julie Church
