I haven't had a pepsi in a while and kind of craving one but I probably shouldn't drink any caffeine today. I kinda pushed my luck with coffee, it was decaf though but even that I technically should not have.
Pepsi is shit.
Drink Coke.

Or better yet a local premium root beer.

I'm not too fussy about pop, I don't mind coke either, but given the choice I do like Pepsi more.

Overall been drinking less pop though. I used to drive several a day it was bad lol.

I can't believe how freaking pale my chest is. It was not noticeable before with all the hair lol. I assume that will grow back fairly quickly, I hope lol.

Need to babysit my sister's dog for 2 days since they're out of town with my parents. Should be interesting... As much as I like dogs they are so much work I would not want one of my own. He also tends to just randomly run off and it's very hard to coax him back, so I don't trust him if I bring him to the park off leash but that would be a good way for him to burn energy.

Dog goes nuts when he sees another dog ended up with a huge burn from the leash. now I'm at home and pretty much need to constantly keep an eye since he's into everything. omg going to be a long 2 days. Just glad it's only 2 days and not the whole time they're gone. I can bring him back at like 3. They got a sitter to stay at their house but it's just for 2 days where she can't be there.

This is why I am a cat person. They are way less work.

The dog is terrified shitless of the cat, tail under the legs and everything. It's actually hilarious lol. He came on Christmas and we let him see my cat to see what he does.

My finger was hurting too much from when he pulled hard on the lesh, since it zipped through my skin and gave me a burn, so I did not want to try to deal with it otherwise I would have let my cat come out of the room to see his reaction. Pretty sure I'm going to have a serious scar from that. I put it in ice water most of the day.

I somehow managed to get a hair trim with all this. I brought the dog to my sister's house and stayed there for another hour, just wanted to give him a change of scenery so he's not as antsy. He was better there. Then had to go water my mom's flowers and at that point figured I'd pickup food at the mall as I had not ate yet. There was no way I was going to try to eat with the dog around.

Lol just ordered a Ryobi 18v pump and a grinder. In my defense, they have a sale where you get a free battery and charger, can never have too many batteries lol.

Thinking of cashing in some of my ESPP soon. I think I will give it a month or so to see if it goes up a bit more. It's more or less around pre covid levels at this point and I have like a 20% return. So I can't get too greedy. I also can't cash it all at once or I will get taxed to death so I will probably cash like 20k and then I'll see how bad of a hit I take and if it's not bad I will cash more next year.

Basically if I play my cards right I can pretty much pay off my property in the next few years with my ESPP.

Need to babysit my sister's dog again today since her regular sitter can't for the whole day. This time I'm just going to stay at her house, way easier. He's a handful and it just made things worse at my house since he was super antsy. He's near impossible to take for a walk too, minute he sees another dog he just darts for it and he's like 110lbs. Still have a huge burn mark on my hand from the leash when he did it last time. They really need to figure out a way to train him to stop doing that.

I really don't know what they are going to do if things go back to pre-covid normal and when they can't work from home anymore.
