We opted for a menu of mostly seafood this week and I think that will probably help as well because seafood has good fats and amino acids that are good for boosting the metabolism. The grocery list cost about $20 more than usual but that's really not that bad.
Oh by the way, is that not just the cutest kitty cat picture you have ever seen?! I had taken like three pictures before that one but there is such a delay on my phone between when you hit the button and when it actually takes the picture that I kept getting blurry pictures so I changed the snap shot sound on the camera phone to make it sound like a monkey. Thankfully the sound happens about half a second before the shutter snaps the picture so I got the expression that you see above. *melts*

Busy day! We went, after work, to look at puppies. We weren't really planning on getting one until after we moved but we found a deal on craigslist that was just a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and had to check it out. We caved. After that we took the pup over to our friend's house because they wanted to meet him, then we hit PetSmart to get some essentials, and then home to cook/eat dinner. I am, admittedly, the better disciplinarian in this family so it fell on me to show the pup where to find food/water, where to sleep, introduce him to the cats, teach him what he can and cannot chew on, and take him potty every few hours. I've done four very slow, very patient flights of stairs as I tried (with a lot of help from Piper) to show him how to climb them and actually even broke a sweat. No kidding! Not a big sweat ... but there were dribblets falling off my chin. It's not quite the super activity that I had planned for today but the pup is going to need leash training before he gets too big to handle, and lots of exercise to prevent destruction so I've got my work cut out for me! YES!!! When Snackers gets back I get to help him haul the couch down the stairs to the dumpster (it's a piece that we picked up for free and never use because it's so uncomfortable so we're replacing it with a large crate for the pup) and that's going to be one hell of an awesome work out!!
