Yesterday I had mentioned how the day was already shot due to not having any sleep, well that continued.
Every time that I could get a moment to try and take a nap things went wild as Lilith would bounce off of the furniture, she even got into our cabinet that holds Marley’s remains; that was upsetting. A little bit later I started to doze off since they had fallen asleep to wake to them wrestling in the litter box with both of them covered in litter and cat poo. I never did get to get any rest until the day ended as the whole day just sort of went like this over and over.
I tried to stream a little on Overwatch but the nasty language with people in chat made me turn it off. Every attempt to do anything yesterday was compromised by anything that could happen. I even went to take a short walk to run into a neighbor who was having a bad day that had a nervous breakdown right in front of me; yesterday is a day I could’ve lived without experiencing. I’m hoping today is a lot better, the munchkins are awake now so let’s see the pictures of them after their first bath.
Adventure’s of our Little Munchkins (Our Furry Critters)
Giving a bath to Pugsley wasn’t so easy. First off the bath was done with them in the tub while I gently poured water on them so that they wouldn’t freak out as bad, it was quite cute and funny. Pugsley held onto me like his life depended on it as I talked to him about not eating the brown cat cookies from the magic dispensing litter box. The easy part was drying him off as he loved playing with the towel. Lilith I expected to be difficult just chilled until it was over and then when trying to dry her is when she lost it. After giving these munchkins a bath and cleaning up the lovely mess they had made, I took out the trash. When I came back into the house they were at it again.
It took until late in the afternoon for them to settle a little bit and then when Annika got here it seemed to start back up. It was animal Wrestle Mania, lol. The upside is after a very long day of playing these two slept like no longer stinky babies. Pugsley and Lilith slept through the whole night and now the madness may begin again. Oh, and a quick update on Pugsley, he is able to get his shots this weekend as all looks great from his results.
Adventure Cycling / Zwift / RGT Cycling / Peloton / Fitness
This morning we’re getting back on the horse. A Peloton workout to start out our day should get things rolling in the right direction. Today I am hoping to get about 20-30 miles in on the Peloton bike and I do want to get on Zwift and RGT Cycling for a few miles each just to do some testing. Annika is in the process of setting up her workout once the munchkins start to settle a moment.
Once Annika heads out the door and Pugsley and Lilith take their first nap, I’ll begin my workout. Maybe two hours to do the Peloton workout and then attempt to set up on my Wahoo Kickr Snap to do the Zwift and RGT Cycling. Starting July 1st I will be doing at least 1 century a week outside as long as things don’t continue to go in the same direction that they have been going this year. I really hate attempting to make any plans since thing things out of our control seem to keep jumping in the way but I have to try. Fingers crossed, oh man do I need a break from things for a bit. Maybe a week on the bike would do it.
PC Gaming and our Twitch Channel
As for our PC Gaming and Twitch. Daily Twitch proves itself to be a worthless outlet. No matter how much work goes into it, nothing has come well out of it. I do turn on the stream here and there however no one shows up unless they’re there to say “Hi I’m a streamer”. Twitch has lost so many users that Twitch employees who stream and Partnered streamers are using viewbot to fluff the numbers. One of our friends works at Twitch and as long as we’ve known them, 10-25 people, max would be in their channel and then one day we were in their channel chilling and over 1000 viewers popped up with absolutely no chat. Now their channel has between 400-600 viewers with no chat going on the entire stream, and this is a Twitch employee’s stream. We left their channel never to return again.
As for PC Gaming, we love to play our games however Overwatch is so filled with trashy people it does make it upsetting to play though we still do as long as we can take it.
Movies, TV Shows, Concerts and Outings
We finished watching Paul (2011) last night, we’re so busy it takes us two days to finish one movie lol. I didn’t get any time to watch any movies or TV Shows yesterday as every time the TV was on we would have to continue to push pause so that we could stop Lilith from climbing on the cabinets, or keep Pugsley out of the litter box; or, well… you get the point. Puppies and kittens are fun for the most part, thankfully we love them.
Today’s Adventure and/or Plan
Today I have many plans and I hope that somehow some of them are possible. Daily we’re training Pugsley and Lilith however each day depends on how well things are going. My hope is that things can settle a bit so that by July 1st I can go outside and ride a few times a week. Feeling trapped with them each day is taking it’s toll very quickly.
Today I am looking to get my legs warmed up on the Peloton, afterward setup Zwift for a few miles and after that setup RGT Cycling to do a few miles. I want to get a nice muscle burn from all 3 of the platforms to get a nice feel of the differences between them. I’d like to get Kara (my mountain bike) cleaned up as we plan to add a basket to the front for Pugsley to go riding. There are the normal things that need to be done around the house and it’s a laundry day as well since the munchkins have gone through some towels.
Hopefully today also I’d like to get a few good matches in on Overwatch and if that doesn’t happen I’ll create a new toon on World of Warcraft and go fishing, haha. Fingers crossed for a better day with hopeful possibilities.

We like to keep in mind daily that not only are we always focusing on riding our bikes long distance but also that many people we know or even do not know are out on the roads and trails traveling. So if you’re out on the road driving a car please be extra cautious and watch for cyclists who may be on the road with you day or night.
We are working on a project called #AZBIKEANDHIKE. Currently, we have a Strava Club set up for #AZBIKENHIKE‘s Cycling and Hiking. We’re working on the website as we plan it to be a community for the people in Arizona that love to ride bikes and hike. Our goal is to also share great places to get gear, trails to ride or hike, and just awesome fun places to enjoy the outdoors in Arizona. More details to come as this project progresses, we can say at this time that this site will not rely or have profiles on any social media such as Twitter, Facebook, or other.
