The rollercoaster continues.
Remember the ups and downs I wrote about yesterday? Well, I guess it’s just that kind of week!
Not-so-little Cholula had a date with the vet this morning. As adorable as she was when she was tiny, we don’t want multiple mini-Cholulas running around. An extra early wake-up call had all three of us on the grumpy side today- especially Ms. Lazy Bones.
John and I both felt bad, being uber-sweet to Cholula while secretly plotting to leave her in a strange place to have unpleasant things done to her during the day. She totally sensed our feelings and seemed anxious all morning. Look!
As a side note, she only weighs 47.4 pounds. I was way off. Probably because anything over 20 pounds feels like ONE TON on a 7-hour road trip in your LAP. Moving on…
We gave her kisses and left, opting not to stop for breakfast in Salt Lake and head back up to Park City. Not two minutes after we walked in the door, the vet called. Cholula’s doctor was ill and would have to reschedule. Now, I know these things happen and are unavoidable. But our vet’s office is 35 minutes away. I headed back down the canyon and after two hours puppy-shuttling in the car, my day was off to a rough start. (Cholula, however, was happy to be riding shotgun toward home and NOT being poked and prodded by strangers with the office’s cat peering down at her from the top of the cabinets.)
I went about my to-do list for the day and managed to get my Honeymoon Hundred in before the early morning started to wear on me. Maybe I need a nap.
And then the rollercoaster headed back UP! My new friend Emily at Adventures of a Dog Mom nominated me for another blog award!
The rules for these awards are similar.
- Showcase the award.
- Thank the person who nominated you.
- Share things about yourself.
- Share the blog LOVE.
I’ve shared all sorts of randomness about myself in past posts (here and here and here). It’s hard to come up with interesting things to ask myself, so I put my fate in the hands of Google. A search of “10 random questions” actually gave me 50. I’ll compromise with the first 20. (Blame Google if these are lame. Hint: They are.)
Where were you three hours ago? On my physioball trying to read Bon Appetit and count to 100 at the same time.
Who are you in love with?
Is there anything pink within 10 feet of you? I’ve never liked the color PINK until recently when the meaning changed a bit for me. Above my desk, I did spy this magnet.
Are you wearing socks right now? Just my flip flop tan!
Do you have a car worth over $2,000? Yes. I finally drive a safe vehicle. But I miss this:
Have you been to the movies in the last 5 days? No. I am months overdue for a movie night OUT!
Are you hot? Nope- it’s a lovely 84 degrees and breezing in Park City. SLC is the hot spot at 101.
What was the last thing you had to drink? Black coffee. All day long.
What are you wearing right now? A tee-shirt that says Peace & Love, man.
Do you wash your car or let the car wash do it? Drive-through car washes are brilliant!
Last food you ate? Leftover veggie pasta from last night’s delish din-din.
Where were you last week at this time? I was in the kitchen making these for our party!
Have you bought any clothing items this week? Pass. Next question.
When is the last time you ran? Probably yesterday. And definitely after the dog.
What’s the last sporting event you watched? Le Tour! Viva Le Tour!
What is your favorite animal? All of the BABY ones!
Your dream vacation? I’ve gotten to go on some pretty dreamy vacations in the last handful of years. With a honeymoon to plan, the dreaming quotient is increased! We are leaning toward the British Virgin Islands… purr.
And now for a little bit of BLOG LOVE. I have listed many of my favorite blogs when I received other awards. Check them out! I have a couple of new blogs on my list of happy reads lately, and I hereby pass on the BLOG AWARD NOMINATION (choose which award you’d prefer!) to:
Shannon at Dirt N Kids
Alisa at No I Will Not Carry That Rock
Stacey at A Goode House
And my last UP for the day? It’s date night, you guys. Stay tuned for that!
But first, that nap…
