His Identity Crisis

I think if Cecil could talk and someone asked him, “what are you?” He wouldn’t say a talking cat. He would say “I’m a peanut, sweet potato, muffin, honey bun, tiny baby.”

At this point I’ve definitely given him an identity crisis.

Last night when I got home from work I was feeling pretty good so I took myself out for a walk.

Putting on my running clothes I almost felt normal


I walked for about an hour so I got through an episode and a half of the Missing Maura Murray podcast. When I said I was missing my running podcasts the other day Megan asked if I can listen to them in my car — and I CAN’T!!!

I have specific podcasts that I listen to during my commute and specific podcasts I listen to while running :). I also have specific songs I can only listen to while running!

Me before snapping the selfie: look alive, Kristina! Did I do an okay job? 😀

Even though I have run in this park hundreds of times I just noticed this mile marker for the first time ever. I tried to find the others but I couldn’t find them, wtf?

So, I might try to go running today. If not today then definitely tomorrow. I feel really good except for this lingering cough that comes around when I try to talk too much.

When I am sitting in silence or sleeping at night I barely cough at all. Since I run in silence I think it’s worth a try to see if I can do it… wish me luck!

What nicknames do you have for your pet and/or significant other?

    Aw Tiny Baby is the cutest name. Lately I’ve taken to calling Mitten “little.” It used to be little mitten kitten and somehow, instead of going back to her real name, it has been shorten to little.

    My cats are often called “zozo” (Zoe) and “looney” (Luna), but honestly, a lot of times I just call them the black cat and the gray cat because we’ve had 6 cats since we have been married and had kids, and at the snap of a finger it’s hard to remember their names!! That sounds terrible, but I still love them dearly 🙂 hey, at least I get my kids names right!

    What an odd mileage marker. Like, if there’s only going to be one marker, why 1 1/4 miles? No one is ever like, “Hmmmm I wonder if I have run 1 1/4 miles yet???”

    Oh man my kitties…. Here are their names. Are you ready?

    Christmas: Chrissy, Kissy, Chrissy Boy, Kissy Boy, Baby, Buster, Busty, Buzzy
    Jelly: Jelly Boy, Jellers, Jeller Boy, Jell Jell, Baby Busty Boy

    What are your commute podcasts?

    Haha I could totally get what you’re saying about Cecil. If my Mom’s Cat could talk, she’ll probably answer: “I’m the queen of these humans” (my family). However, they also call her little cow.
