*Update* It's Tuesday

7:45:  Alarm went off. Seriously - my alarm wasn't supposed to go off until 8:45.  Apparently it didn't know that.

8:15:  Crawl out of bed unwillingly.  Decide I showered last night and so just throw on jeans and a t-shirt.  Head to the kitchen to eat a banana.  Take Rory on a short walk

9:30:  In the car on the way to the vet

10:00:  The vet looked at Aurora's head and said everything looks okay.  She was more concerned with why the little miss got hit. They did an eye exam and found some spotting on her retina and so they ordered some pretty extensive blood work (at the tune of $115).  We should have the results back from the lab by the end of the week.  Depending on what results say our vet may be referring us to a Doggy Opthamologist.  Oh my.  Does anyone have any idea how much that is going to set us back?

11:30:  Finally home - and of course my little girl needed all sorts of loving.  Between blood work, deworming, a fecal exam, and all of her one year boosters she is a bit traumatized!

12:00:  Catching up on all your blogs

1:00:  Lunch

2:00:  Stop at the library to return my due books and pick up the ones I have on reserve.  So excited about a few of the books I'll be reading over the next few weeks!  But not all.  One of the books I placed a request for was a recommendation from amazon and I made the mistake of not reading the full description.  Never again!  Lets keep it PG and I'll just post the last sentence of the book cover:
"Secrets of Housewife will you moist from start to finish." 
What must the librarians think of this crazy girl who apparently just checked out a porn novel!!

2:30:  Run by the tailor to pick up my jeans.  Did I mention last week that I bought a pair of 7 jeans for $11 at Marshall's.  Even with the $5 to have the altered they are such a bargain!  I don't normally buy 7s but these ones fit me really well.  And I've lost enough weight that a large portion of my closet doesn't fit!!

3:00: Head to the nail salon for a much needed mani/pedi.  After spending all day yesterday painting with my SIL, I have paint all over my fingernails and toenails!  Ick.

4:30:  Home to start cooking dinner.  I am trying the Southwestern Pot Pie that Glamorous Life of a Housewife posted last week.  It sounds so so good! If you haven't been by her blog in a while you should go stop in and offer her a big congrats.  She just found out that she is pregnant!  I can't wait to follow along with her over the next 8 months.  (A part of me is so jealous.  But Casey and I just aren't ready yet.  I'm ready to be ready!  But for now I'll keep faithfully taking by BC every night.)

6:30:  Leave the house to make it to Book Club on time.  We are going to discuss Love Walked In by Marisa de Los Santos.  It was a good read and I certainly recommend it!

9:30ish:  I figure I'll be home in time to enjoy a little Banana Pudding and maybe watch a show with my husband!


  1. Sounds like a fabulous day!

    I'm so glad to hear that your little sweet pea is ok (per the vet) :)

    (I'm most jealous of the mani/pedi you're going to enjoy!)

    I was inspired by your "what i'm reading" link so i made one of my own! (trendsetter!!!)

    I'm still so flattered by your award. TY again!

    p.s. would love to have you as a follower! :)

  2. I'm so jealous about your mani/pedi! I hope it's as wonderful as it sounds...ahh...

    Have a great rest of the day!!

  3. *eep*

    you've been tagged on my blog!


  4. Fun day! I am also jealous of your mani/pedi! And I hope your dog is feeling better, poor thing!

  5. I need a mani pedi soooooooooooo bad it's not even funny. So, I'm slightly jealous. I, am also slightly jealous of Miss Whitney of the Glamourous Life of a Housewife--but, still, widly excited for her!

    Anyways, we have never used a doggy opthamologist, but, I'm certain we will in the near future--my little girl has cataracts and they are gettign worse--apparently, they can do doggie laser eye surgery... Is it sad that I know this??

    Hope all checks out with Rory!

  6. AHHHHHHHH you've been busy in blog land..

    1. Glad Rory is ok...she's just too small for her own good
    2. your needle situation = not good
    3. have fun at the Dg event tonight
    4. congrats on your award
    5. did i miss anything else???

    not sure about lunch yet since I have been gone for a while and I may have a meeting...will have to let you know

  7. Congrats on your award!
    I am sorry your doggy was sick..
    Oh, how I need a mani/pedi.. STAT.

  8. Good luck with the pup situation! Hope it doesn't set you back too too much. Nothing's more important than a healthy baby though!
    That is hysterical about that Housewife book. I'm sure those librarians have stories to tell about people. But hey..they have it on the shelf right?!?

  9. I'm sorry but I could not help but laugh when I read the part about you checking out the porn novel at the library. Oh my! Too funny.

    I would be happy to take pictures of you guys if I lived closer. I need the experience. :)

  10. I love reading your schedule! Totally living out my housewife desires vicariously through you ! :) Fingers crossed that the puppy's bloodwork goes well!
