I Didn’t Forget About You, I’m Just Boring

I know I didn’t get a blog posted last weekend.  It’s not that I forgot, I just haven’t been up to anything very exciting so I honestly didn’t know what to write about!  We spent the last weekend of January being lazy at home.  I think every weekend of February has something going on for us, so The Engineer and I just vegged out and bummed around.  I did give the house a good scrubbing, and worked on a couple little projects, but by and large I didn’t do much.  See….I told you….not very exciting

I have a couple little craft and house projects that I’m working on, but I though that instead of giving you little mini blogs about a dozen things I would just wait and do one larger post.  Much like what my Grandma used to say about hair when my sister and I were babies…..”Ya gotta wait for the good stuff!”  Likewise, I have a couple new recipes I busted out this week, but wanted to try them out before I shared them.  More waiting for you I guess! 😛

 

We did have a doggy related incident last week, I guess I could tell you about that.  My poor puppachino sliced her paw open!  Turns out that the metal frame of my couch is broken, and my little’s paw found the hole and the nasty metal.  She ended up with a pretty deep slice between her large foot pad and her ankle.  Think like right where our wrist crease is on your hand….owwies!  We spent most of Tuesday night trying to get the bleeding to stop, but she was such a brave girl about it.  It’s just in a not great spot.  We’d get the bleeding to stop and she’d get up and take a step and poof….more blood.  Pro tip…if you need to get blood out of something you can’t wash…aka my area rug…..warm salt water will do the trick every time!  It’s super science-y, but the salt basically explodes the blood cells and therefore the stain comes right out!

The pink “Stocking of Doom”…..she wasn’t at all a fan.

She spent most of Wednesday with a sock on just to keep her from licking at it all day long.  She’s been good about leaving it alone mostly, but it isn’t healing up very nicely.  It’s right where her foot bends and moves when she walks, so it’s broken open a couple times.  She doesn’t seem very bothered by it, and runs and bounces around like nothing is wrong.  She’s pretty hesitant to let us look at it, it’s hard to get a view at and we usually have to move some fur and sorta really get in there……but we’ve been checking it every night.  I’ve made the executive decision that if it doesn’t seem like it’s healing up by next week I’m going to take her into the vet.  I’m not sure there’s a ton that can be done, based on it’s placement, but for me it’s worth taking her in and just making sure that things will be alright with it.  I’ll keep you updated on that, but hopefully it just heals up on its own.

Puppy Problems and Other Random Events

Lil B came to visit!!!

It was a great long weekend!  Plenty of drinks and good food….with some homework sprinkled in for good measure.  Thursday night we watched the BFB and the Hubby in Law play volleyball.  Actually B, ended up playing too.  Thank goodness they didn’t need two extra girls because my sport skills are probably not where they should be.  After volleyball came dinner and drinks.  B discovered Ace Pineapple Cider, and that might be one of her new favorites.  Over the weekend she also discovered Moscow mules…..because The Engineer and I are mule people after all.  Friday, B and I did homework while everyone else went to work or slept after their night at work.  We had a big family dinner of spicy chicken tacos at BFB’s house Friday night.

Sadly, Saturday wasn’t very warm.  We had visions of going to the pool, but the wind made that sort of miserable.  I mean we went……but it was less than stellar.  Had the wind been calmer I think we would have been fine…..but it was gusty enough that it was moving lounge chairs around the deck.

Bikinis and blankets…..dedication!

 

Saturday night we had another big family dinner at BFB’s house to celebrate Lil B’s birthday last week.  Steak with shrimp and alfredo anyone?!  The Hubby in Law makes a restaurant quality pan seared steak and it’s always a nice treat.  It’s usually our ‘super fancy’ celebratory dinner.  Generally, we celebrate at home anymore.  No one has to tipsy drive home, and between all of us we can cook pretty much anything we would want to order at a restaurant anyway.

Sunday was a lazy and casual morning brunch on my patio before B had to take off for home.  The only person who didn’t get the lazy memo was Scout.  Even though she had spent all weekend with everyone, apparently the excitement was just too much for her.  In a confused state of panic about whether to sit outside with everyone or follow BFB to the bathroom…..she ran full speed into the screen door and plowed right through it!  Ughs……needless to say I was a rather annoyed Fur Momma.  Eventually The Engineer and I did get it bent back, put back in it’s track, and it’s mostly functioning like it did before.

Scout-a-Roo rounded off her naughty weekend by eating my newest bikini bottoms.  The bikini isn’t exactly new, I bought it last year before that vacation that will not be named, but I like the way it makes my ass-ests and twins look, and it’s only been wet maybe twice….so I was way less than amped.  Thankfully, I found an identical pair of replacement bottoms on Ebay so I just have to wait for them to be delivered.  Since Victoria’s Secret is no longer making swim suits, I maybe should shop around Ebay for a couple new ones before they become impossible to find commodities.  Of course, how many bikinis does a nearly thirty year old need?  Not like I get to put in that much quality pool/beach time anymore really.  Adulting sucks the fun right outta everything!

Speaking of the Scout-a-Roo….she got to spend the first part of the week living her best puppy life with The Engineer.  I was in Minneapolis Monday through Wednesday for the annual Fuel Ethanol Workshop.  Don’t even get me started on the ridiculousness that was me going up there to sit and hand out swag in an expo booth for 3 days….but whatever I guess.  The Engineer agreed to puppy-sitting duties….probably mostly because my house as central AC and his apartment does not.  I think she likes him better than me anyway.  Come to think of it….maybe she ate my swim suit out of anger because she’s now forced to hangout with me again.

oh hey

Well that’s a weird good morning picture…..
