People, where has the week gone!?!? I cannot believe it is already Saturday! So here’s the deal, this week was made of lots of awesome! Here’s what went down:
Saturday was full of nothing special. I had work and that went about as good as work could go which is to say it was mediocre at best. But after work I was treated to a dinner date with three of my favorite people: Kari, Zack, & Zeke. We went to Buffalo Wild Wings which has precisely two things on their entire menu that I can eat (For the record, BWW is NOT the restaurant for vegetarians.)
Sunday was a glorious, glorious day because I had it off from work. Hurrah! I used this time to clean and do laundry because seriously, I have been putting that off since before Christmas which is not good for my clean-freakishness.
Monday was my very first day of classes! I woke up late, my car doors were frozen shut, my windshield wipers refused to work, and I basically froze my butt off walking to class at a very brisk pace because as I’ve stated, I was running late, but it ended up being a really great day! I have three classes from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with just enough break time to make a pit stop at Einstein Bros Bagels or Starbucks (or both!) and make it to class on time.
Monday night was when all hell broke loose at home. My stepmom was locked up in her room with the flu, my dad was working out, Kari was MIA, I was attempting to help Zack with his homework, Zack was attempting to push every one of my buttons while I helped him with his homework, and Zeke was busy climbing in his closet (none of us knew this at the moment). In the midst of a screaming match between Zack and I, Zeke fell from the top shelf of his closet. This resulted in lots of panicking (from me) and screaming (also from me…and okay, Zeke too.). Zeke, my dad, and my flu-stricken stepmom, ended up in the ER room for a full 4 hours that night waiting to get Zeke’s wrist in a cast. I felt sorry for all of them because honestly, the ER room during flu season…not exactly the place I’d want to be hanging out in.
Tuesday morning I relaxed while Zeke stressed, something that has never and I repeat NEVER happened before. I’ve never seen a little kid so concerned on how they were going to pee & eat with only one hand. At least we know where his priorities lie. Tuesday night I went to my 4th class of the week; it went really well!
Wednesday was classes yet again! With bagels and coffee as a possibility, I was in some sort of uber good mood which is often times rare when school is involved! I ended the day by ordering books for school….eww, just eww.
Thursday was a rare day off for me! Lola and I laid in bed for a full two hours. She slept while I read, and it was pure bliss <3 I then had to take Lola to a vet check up which wasn’t quite as blissful as the lounging around in my bed. For the rest of the night I was the true definition of a lazy butt. I watched TV, snacked endlessly, read, and even napped a bit. I need every day to include little moments like that.
I had work all day on Friday which again was an “eww, just eww” moment. We were so slow I considered taking a nap on the floor right in the middle of the store. Unfortunately, my boss wasn’t quite as fond of this idea as I was. Instead I organized like a champ and then went home to hang out with the siblings and the kitten.
Now that it’s Saturday, I have another day of work ahead of me but maybe I’ll luck out and my manager will change her mind on the whole “napping on the floor” thing. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
PHOTOS OF THE WEEK:
Lola has had a great first week in my house! She was really mellow and timid the first few days but slowly she has allowed her sassy little personality to show through and I just love it! She is so funny and playful but she also has her uber sweet and cuddly moments! Her vet visit went good aside from the fact that I need to fatten her up some more. As for what new things she has learned this week: she loves to interrupt my typing/texting. She will either sit directly on my keyboard or phone causing me to send messages a bit premature with plenty of spelling mistakes, or she will swat at my hands until I show her some love. Lola has also gotten out of my room a bit to explore the rest of the house. I have a sneaking suspicion she likes it if the running, prancing, and jumping have anything to say for it.
