You all already know that I have trouble warming up in the Winter months.
What a shitty week for weather. I hate to say it, but my doc appointment on Thursday was the first time I actually left the house since seeing Zero Dark Thirty on Sunday.
Yes, it sounds (and is) sad, but in my defense, I do work from home and did have to open the door often to let the dog out to do his bidness.
It's frigid out there!
I know Petey wanted to go for a walk, but in other ways, he wanted right back in after 52 seconds. ....and I wasn't taking him on two or three 1.5 mile walks per day.
I'm a freeze baby.
I felt so bad when I was going to the doctor though. He saw me put on my boots and coat and he was SO excited. He thought it was go-time, but it was not.
Yesterday I made a concerted effort to get him out. I took 30 minutes from my work day and froze my face for an around the long block walk. It was all of 13 degrees - not including the wind. I had my YakTrax on for good measure. I can't afford another fall.
Allegedly it is getting up into the 20's the next two days.....and then to almost 40 by Tuesday.
Yeah, it's been a brutal week, but I have to remind myself: it is January in Cleveland. Usually it will be like this for three weeks in a row - and even colder and with more snow. It's still be a decent enough Winter. Though I do hope this was the worst of it.
