    I understand that having a family member with anger issues can be frustrating. I hope you'll have the opportunity to go to therapy yourself, with the right help a lot can change. And setting boundaries to family and friends can also be very stressful, I've dealt/am dealing with this still sometimes. But things can change and you will stay strong. (:
    And cute doggo pictures help a lot!

    Daily Exercise: 40 Lunges, with EC

    Thanks, Anek!

    I had plans today. And then I finally opened my birthday puzzle and got a... bit sidetracked. It was only 4 hours! After that my back was really unhappy with me, so I kept it as light as I could with 220 high knees and climbers.

    I'm only doing the daily exercise tomorrow because I'm seeing Bernice and Dr Tyler at 9 in the morning. Yay and ugh.

    The pictures of Liam! That link should work. Yesterday won on best match. It's great to see what time works best with the light reflection on snow. That time is between 10 and 11, and it doesn't have to be fully clear, because yesterday was actually a bit overcast!

    ​​​​​​​I have so many new pictures. It's lovely!

    Daily Exercise: 30 Raised Leg Circles, with EC

    Today was not an easy day. My brother does not know how to control his anger (specifically, how not to take it out on others; really sick of not being allowed to have a good day if he's not) and I stayed quiet on the couch to not provoke my own anger.

    He is going to a therapist, but this one is probably not going to be the one he needs. Which, of course, makes things much worse. I understand he needs the help of a therapist (I do, too), but my empathy is usually pretty broken and I have none for someone who doesn't even try.

    The simple pleasure and joy of this site helps enormously. You Bees are the best people.

    Kept it super simple with the exercising and didn't get to any baking, but there is always tomorrow! (My motivation is so high at night. Why do you forsake me in the morning?!)

    I may have the perfect picture! I will try once more tomorrow, but of the three I took today, one is now my background, so it's good! Once I have everything, I'm going to try my best to make a shareable google doc so nothing gets lost in shrinking. Liam is so cute!

    Just tried Aloha Protein Bars and they're not bad! Vegan is best with my lactose intolerance, but finding good vegan protein bars is not easy. The fudge brownie wasn't unpleasant, but I'm not overly fond of the mint chocolate; it tasted too much like toothpaste when I finished my tea. Still, a decent snack!

    Daily Exercise: 2 Minutes High Knees, with EC
    Assassin's Challenge: Day 23 & 24

    Yesterday I was a sloth. I finally remembered to exercise just before bed, so I only did the daily exercise. Super easy, thankfully!

    I was back in action today! And neither days of assassin's had high knees, so that was very nice with the daily exercise!

    I found a recipe for carob muffins a while ago that will convert very easily to sugar free dog treats. My hope is to use the leftover blueberry mass as a filler for the muffins. Fun experiments for tomorrow!

    The snow is marvelous and not melting any time soon! Which means the comparison picture from last year may be perfect! I have several already that aren't bad, but my hope is for tomorrow at 11. I'd take Wednesday, too, though! That'll be exactly a year! (I somehow caught Liam blinking again. So darn adorable!)

    ​​​​​​​Thank you for your reply, DorothyMH!


    I'm alive! I did the daily exercise and assassin's challenge every day and the Primal workout (which day? I don't actually remember...). Kept it super light and easy.

    I have slept more in the past four days than I have in the past few weeks. Obviously needed, but really rather unwanted.

    No playing with Liam in the snow. We had a cold snap come through that has had it cold. Even Liam isn't spending too much time outside. (By that I mean 30 minutes at a time instead of 2 hours.) It's averaged about -10, though the coldest at night was -20 (celsius). So, yeah, the snow we got is still here just... frozen...

    ​​​​​​I did get to the blueberry gummies! I didn't use enough gelatin, though, so made blueberry jello. I bought more frozen and will try again!

    The new bakery opened Friday. They have online ordering, so we got almond croissants! We were disappointed, though. They were definitely a bit overcooked, and hard on the outside instead of just flaky. That's a bit sad...

    ​​​​​​​Pictures next post!

    I would not mind it, as long as my doggos liked them.

    Considering how much I dislike burpees, that workout was not a present! Glad I remembered it!

    I did go and buy a cake after it, though...

    ​​​​​Snow! I do love it, Gandhalfit! I hope to get outside with Liam tomorrow and really play with him. Last time I did that was last year and he was half his size!

    Regarding blueberries: the gummies are hopefully setting. It's probable I didn't use enough gelatin, in which case I'm taking everything out and adding more tomorrow. The carob confections turned out really well! Liam quite likes them!

    That's filling, covered, and for size comparison. All of the treats I've been making are that size.

    Serious question: if you were going to buy specialty dog treats, would you mind the fact that they'd need to be refrigerated? Delivered to your door cold, but they'd have to remain that way to stay fresh?
