Sunday Update – January 19, 2020


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.


My biggest news for the week is that I’m now 44 years old! My birthday was yesterday, and despite the weather not cooperating and delivering snow, we had a good day. My husband ran interference on the puppy so I could have a puppy-less day (Really, caring for Lulu is a full-time job right now and it’s exhausting). We managed to make it out to dinner even since all the snow plows were out and keeping the roads drivable.

Other news for the week…

Lulu went to a doggy day care for two days in a row! I got her in on Wednesday for a 2-hour temperament evaluation. She did great, even if she was shy and wasn’t sure what she should be doing. I brought her back in on Thursday while I was at pottery class, and she warmed up to the environment. She played more and had more fun.

This was an important step in our dog-owning journey. I spent a lot of time looking into day care/boarding/grooming places and this was my top choice. I want a place she’ll be comfortable in, that’s flexible enough to take her whenever, and she can be boarded there when we go on vacation. Plus, we’re having our bathroom remodeled soon, and I want to be able to take her there for when we’re going through demolition and having other very noisy work done. She can go play with the puppies, and I can go to Panera. Win win! I’m glad it worked out for her, and I hope it continues to go well. We’re still in the early initial stages of this.

My husband was also gone most of this week, so we basically did all we could to get by without him. I didn’t sleep much so I’ve been catching up this weekend.

What else happened this week?

Lulu missed my husband when he was away so she curled up in his spot on the couch.

Someone is REALLY tired after doggy day care.

I cut up a bunch of citrus fruit and dehydrated them for water.

I test drove a Tesla on Friday! I’m shopping to get a new car in 2021-ish and I want to consider electric vehicles too. I really enjoyed my driving experience in the Tesla, but there are lots of vehicles to consider!

I crossed the 10k mark on Flyght Book 6 and kept going.

Lulu loves her donut toys and they make good pillows too.

I’m finally switching over to loose tea with my favorite morning tea, Stash’s Super Irish Breakfast. I got a few extra teas to go with it.

And here I am at 44 years old. I have a ways to go to recover from the broken leg but I’m making good progress!

Have a great week everyone!
