I’m a bad blogger.

Category house stuffs, retail therapy, the cats

I know, I know…I’ve been less than active in the posting department.

So, what’s new? My weekend at home was AWESOME. I slept in, got the house clean…and laid around. It was heaven.

Friday, I found my Halloween costume, at last.

And other accessories, of course. I’m very excited. I’m planning on doing up my neck, decapitation style. So I’ll be sexy AND gory! The best of both worlds. :)

Hmmm, what else. My poor sweet Milo (the cat) spent the night at the UofM Small Animal hospital, in anticipation of some procedures he’s having done today, like a CAT scan (ba dum bum) and a rhinoscopy. His poor sniffer is still not working right, so hopefully they find something, and not something too serious. I kept having dreams about taking him to kitty chemo. :( I’m still waiting to hear from them about what time he’ll be going in, as well as waiting for the findings and when I can pick him up and bring him home.

What else…tomorrow is tattoo day. I’m a little nervous, to say the least. I’ve heard foot tattoos hurt pretty damn bad, but I figure, if I survived the walk, I can survive a tattoo. I’ll fill in how that goes tomorrow. I’ll take a picture too. :)

This weekend, a wedding, corn maze, and birthday party.

At least my house is clean.

Category house stuffs, I am awesome, the cats, The Hubs

Not what I wore while cleaning.

Four hours of non-stop house cleaning and my abode is ready for a parental pop-in.

I vacuumed, mopped, straightened, dusted, arranged flowers, did dishes. I should have taken some pictures. Something tells me once I get home from work in a few hours that the husband will have somehow undone some of my hard work.

The parents will be here in about 7 hours.

Things I have to do before they get here:

Take kitties to the vet to get cathader-ized. (Pee-ers begone!)
Go to grocery store.
Go to home improvement store.
Clean bathroom – again (I can only assume).
Drink copious amounts of wine.

I’m in a surprisingly good mood today. Probably because I woke up to a home worthy of a spread in some home magazine. Certainly not Domino. Maybe Better Homes & Gardens if they had a sloppy 20-somethings issue.

Taking a quick break…

Category house stuffs, the cats

…from losing my mind to update my blog. Martini’s been on my case. :)

This week has been retarded. And I’m not apologizing for using that word. It has been nothing short of RETARDED. It’s already Thursday. I have no effing clue where the week went. This is problematic since I have 9,358 things to get done before noon tomorrow and no time to do it. Mostly work stuff. House is in shambles. Laundry needs to be done. Yard needs tending. Cat(s) have decided to ruin our lives by peeing in places in the basement that don’t include their litter box. Carpets have been torn out.

I feel lightheaded and craptastic today. I would love to go home but our internet at home has been less than spectacular.

My parents will be in town in about 28 hours. I’m looking forward to this, but feel as though I will not get my house in the shape it needs to be in for a parental visit. Especially since our entire basement reeks of cat urine.

God help me.

Category house stuffs, RAD

(Don’t ask me who those women are. I heart Google Images.)

This may have been the longest week EVER.

Today is the summer solstice, so it SEEMS like the longest day ever.

Coincidence? Maybe.

After working a 10 hour day yesterday, I don’t even feel like I should be here today.

The hubs and I have a big weekend of home improvement planned. I’m going to replace our doorbell while he attempts again to grow grass in our patchy front yard. I have a couple big walks this weekend too, a 10 mile one tomorrow and a 6 mile one Sunday.

That’s all for now. :)

Sorry it’s been a while…

Category cancer sucks, house stuffs

Lots of things have happened in the past week and a half, some good, some bad. I haven’t been blogging because I’ve actually been quite busy at work, if you can believe it!

So, a quick wrap up.

We bought a grill this weekend, and raked leaves for HOURS. But we had a little BBQ on Saturday night and enjoyed our newly raked yard. Ahh, homeowner heaven.

Training starts today for the 3-Day. I have to walk 3 miles. Not to big of a deal. I can do it! (Mental note – need to buy new lock for locker at the Y.)

And the news that is mostly consuming my mind, and has been since Friday, is my auntie Julie. She’s really sick. Turns out cancer is not only in her breast tissue, but in her lungs, and more than likely her brain as well. She was in the hospital over the weekend with pnemonia – I think she’s heading home soon with a hospice. Mom said her husband said she might slip into a coma. It’s so scary. I didn’t hear anything yesterday, I guess no news is good news…but…I don’t know. It’s getting hard to keep doing this, obviously hardest on her. She doesn’t want to give up – but her body is saying otherwise. It’s just been super sucky. So far, I’ve cried or teared up in Target, on the train, and while trying to sleep (which I haven’t been doing very well at the past couple of nights).

Anyway, I don’t want to make this a depressing blog or anything – just having a hard time with everything. 😛
