My Weekend So Far

Well,

I have had one strange and traumatic weekend.

I write this as I lie on the couch, with the husband sleeping at the other end, and the dog asleep on the floor. The teenager is in his room on the computer, and I am just gathering my thoughts on what was our weekend. I have been spending way too long dwelling on the bad things, so I am gonna condense it all in to easy to read points.

I will get the cons out of the way first…

 

CONS

teenager has been fighting at school

dog ripped open paw while digging in the yard and had to have staples under anesthetic

my attempt at bandaging her foot – ended up being too tight, poor love.

we are exhausted both emotionally and physically due to the above

feeling the affects of the drugs. Lots of crying and zoning out…

I pulled my calf muscle while doing 30 day shred (it’s okay now though)

Nic’s credit card snapped

 

PROS

I start my new job tomorrow

I figured out how to use the train for the first time on Friday

I drank a lot of nice red wine

The sun has been shining

I got to eat eggplant parmigiana and poutine

I have played 3 sets of tennis in the last 3 days

We picked our first Christmas tree (and mine ever), and even though I don’t ethically agree with it, it was pretty exciting

Nic with our tree

I had a mammoth 2 hour skype call to my friends last night and it was SO good to talk to them!

I am up to day 8 of 30 Day Shred and I am getting some muscles!

 

SO, in creating my list I will leave you with a song:

Have a great rest of your weekend!

xx Em.

Oh. My. Dog.

This is really just a gratuitous “look at my dog, she is so cute” post.

 

Take one Cleopatra dog.

Add sleepy human head

 

Place Cleopatra dog on human

Wait a few seconds until dog discovers stinky human face

Continue to take photos while human struggles

Wait for the dog to settle and start looking cute again

Then reward it with treats and love and kitty bunts, too.

I love out pets (represented by 2/3 pets)

Love from our fur baby family to yours.

Labour Weekend

Well,

The boys went away to a medieval camp up north, and I am stuck at home. Boo Hoo.

As much as I am going to miss them I have got my plate full: dog sitting. Cody, the boxer we are going to be looking after for 12 weeks over summer is having his first overnight stay this weekend. We are on day 1 now and so far I have discovered;

Cody loves Cleo

Cody wants to either play or eat our cats. Cleo sits by with a confused expression on her face, while Cody stares at the cats and watches them wherever they go. It is my mission this weekend to make him a bit calmer around them, and for the cats to feel comfortable with having yet another slobbery face in the house.

But wow Cody is cute. and SO slobbery. And it is so great to see Cleo sprinting around the yard with an equal sized playmate. needless to say they are tuckered out, although Cody is still staring at Arlo while he pretends to sleep on the couch.

Tomorrow we are going on a 10km trek to Te Horo to go and visit Nic’s Mum and Step-Dad and maybe the dogs will get to play with their little dog, Ness. In the meantime they will have a big huge yard to play in while we try to be civilized indoors.

Have a wonderful long weekend!

xx Em.
