I have not posted an update about what is going on with life in awhile, so I thought it was about time I got around to it.
Chris and I watched the season finale of Game of Thrones last night. It was not as epic as I had hoped, but it was rather good. It would have been hard for them to live up to the quality of the penultimate episode, even with an unlimited budget. Though, I do wish we could have seen more of Danny's storyline. Unfortunately, we have to wait until next April to see the third season. For those who have not seen the series yet, Game of Thrones: The Complete First Season is for sale on Amazon at roughly half price.
We are anxiously waiting for the arrival of our new puppy. We are adopting an Alaskan Klee Kai from a local breeder in Maryland, and the litter will be born around the beginning of July. We will not get to bring the puppy home until roughly the end of August.
In the short-term, we are waiting to find out when Chris will have his hip surgery. He had his knee surgery in March, but the recovery time for hip surgery is a lot longer. I believe it is something like three weeks non-weight-bearing and then up to a year of physical therapy.
In other news, I am really starting to see results from working out. I can increase my reps and/or weight with each workout now—I attribute it to finally getting a relatively good protein intake daily. Of course, I still struggle to reach the 175g of protein per day I should be eating. I am thinking about adding a kettlebell workout to my routine, but I need to purchase one first. I really like the look of these cast iron kettlebells from j/fit, so I think I might nab the 35 lb. option. Of course, I will also pick out heavier kettlebells in the future.
I am still working on the corporate identity for my newest client. So far, I have the logo and business card design finished. Next up on the agenda is to finish the letterhead and envelope design. I will post it to my portfolio when I am finished, so be on the lookout for a future update.
