Here are the attempted assassinations of my good mood:
- My cousin called me several days ago to see if DH and I would be interested in joining them at the Culinary Vegetable Institute near Lake Erie for an amazing culinary experience. Every month they bring in a guest/celebrity chef and they make a fabulous 4-course meal using fresh ingredients grown on their farm. DH and I had nothing planned, and after I spoke with DH he gave me the green light. For some reason unbeknownst to me, I waited until yesterday afternoon to call and reserve/order the tickets. $55 per person, so not exactly cheap. Then, last night at around midnight, DH gets a text from his brother saying that on the same day as that dinner, BIL and his friend will be having a joint 30th-birthday celebration. I hate disappointing people. Let that be known. So, either way we go here, we are disappointing someone! I think we are going to opt for the dinner since we already have the tickets bought, and try to make it up to BIL at some point.
- I'm fairly certain Kelsey has a urinary tract infection. She had to pee way more than usual last night, and two of those urinations (is that a word? I don't think so, but I like it!) were giant trails of pee, as opposed to just puddles. She is almost potty-trained, but when she does pee in the house, it's a puddle. Well, these were rivers of urine, one stretching across the kitchen floor, and another stretching from the kitchen into the living room. This behavior concerned me, as I've not seen her do this before. After way too much time spent on googling, I determined that either she has a UTI or she is almost in heat. I called the vet, and they seem to think UTI. I am taking her to the vet in a couple hours, so we shall see.
- My friend/co-worker and I like to spend our lunchtimes either walking, shopping or eating. This week I have not been a good lunch-buddy. I had to bail yesterday because I came in to work late and was spotted by my boss, which forced me to eat lunch at my desk. I promised her that today I would bring my workout clothes and we would walk at lunch. Well, I forgot to get them ready last night, and in the mornings I'm always running late, so of course I didn't get them packed. I felt awful about it, but we decided to go to TJ Maxx and Target instead (not a bad swap!). We typically leave at 11:30. DH wanted me to call him at 11:30 and wake him up, which I did. Then he tells me that his back is killing him and really wants some Dr. Scholl inserts for his steel-toed boots. I told him to stop at Walgreens on the way to work. He responds with, "And purchase them with what money?" Well, yeah. I have all the cash right now. So, I had to email my friend and disappoint her yet again. I feel like such a flake, and I hate it! Sometimes there just aren't enough hours in a day!
On a good note, however, my MIL would like to keep Kelsey overnight tonight, which is great because DH and I can sleep in and spend some "quality time" together! I miss him so much since he has started this afternoon shift. Every morning when I wake up, I go to the living room, turn on the laptop, and record my temperature on Fertility Friend. Well, when I did this today, I find this artwork left for me (click to see the larger image; you can read the fine print this way!):
Thank you all so much for the lovely compliments on my bangs! I really appreciate it :) I'm really liking them so far, which is great because I was pretty nervous.
And without further adieu, I give you Monsters by Band of Horses:
