Weekend Roundup

Good weekend! But tiring. I spent hours cleaning up the blog and FB. A lot of posts are gone, but those are the past anyway and we’re all about the future here, right?  I’m not going to get into a big discussion about the why of it, except to say this: I believe in doing the right thing :-)

On Bailey News–I had this on my FB but it vanished. Here’s Bailey after getting into a box of donuts:

Bailey is fine now but he spent the night getting his stomach pumped.  He somehow jumped up and knocked the box of donuts off a table  (this is at Bailey’s house, not mine) and wolfed down four before he was caught. Unfortunately, two of them were chocolate.  Bailey’s fine, my sons’ wallets however, are suffering.

I’m feeling better and better.  It’s up and down, but that’s normal with what I have. Wizard keeps telling me that I can call him anytime and he’ll come get me at conference if I don’t feel well.  I rolled my eyes and said, “I’ll be fine. I can rest in my hotel room.”

“Well you do have a birthday coming up. A big one.” Okay he didn’t say a big one. He yelled out how old I’m going to be. And he laughed. Went on teasing me about getting old.

Then I tried on my gown for the Awards Ceremony at Conference and showed him.

He was working on the computer, looked up and froze. “Holy shit. Forget me picking you up, I”m coming with you.”

“But Wizard,”  I said innocently, “What are you worried about. You know I’m getting old now. No one will even notice this old gown on me…”

He narrowed his eyes. “You’re screwing with me, aren’t you?”‘

I laughed and headed up with the stairs. “Every chance I get, Wizard, every chance I get.”

Yeah…I may be old but I still know how to get to Wizard :-)

How was your weekend?

    Wizard is so funny. You got him again :).

    I’m so happy you’re feeling better but keep up the rest so you can have tons of fun this weekend.

    When I saw cone head Bailey I about died. He is so cute – I just love the expression on his face. Good thing the boy caught him eating the donuts. Poor little guy getting his tummy pumped.
    I showed hubs the photo and the first words out of his mouth were, “He looks like PeeWee.”

    Have a great day!

    It is always a good karma thing to clean out the old clutter. To bad I have have such a hard time convinicing the hubby that most of the clutter is his. My stuff is oragnized chaos. Yes that is possible if you see my things. I can find anything in under 5 minutes. I have my own tools- had to get 2 of everything because I could never find his.

    He on the other hand curses, yells, tosses things and than asks to barrow my stuff. I stand and wait until he is done with it than take it from him and put it away immediately. :lol:

    Yeah, the mass deletion this weekend pretty much blew – for all of us. I wonder if we can still post links to pictures or if that’s verboten, too. Wizard deserves whatever you give him after the birthday remark. Poor Bailey. He deserves the cone of shame for eating all those donuts. What was he thinking. Sheesh.

    The weekend here was spent doing pretty much nothing, which means my to-do list for today is gargantuan. But I got an early start and I’m hammering tasks out. I’m also ready for a nap and it’s only 7:40. Bleh.

    Have an awesome day, and big fun at RWA. :hugs:

    My weekend was very tiring. I worked, 9 1/2 hrs Friday, 10 hrs Saturday and only 8 on Sunday. Today’s my only day off this week. We have extra freight coming in for the next few weeks and everyone’s working extra to keep up. They expect us to be working 10 hr days every day for at least the next 3 wks. Good for the checkbook, not so much for the body.

    Hope you feel better soon. Have fun @ RWA!

    Viki, he totally looks disgruntled there, doesn’t he? He doesn’t seem to get that eating 10 percent of his body weight in donuts isn’t smart.

    So cute that Bailey looks like PeeWee!

    I really am feeling better. But when I do too much, the (mild) pain starts and reminds me :-)

    Kat, I’m thinking you’ll never convince him!

    I’m desperate to clean out clutter too. We were making a real dent in projects before I got sick. Now…it’ll wait.

    B.E., so sorry you’re Monday is starting out so busy. Hope you get everything done!

    Bailey was channeling Homer Simpson, “Mmmm Donuts!” :-) I doubt he’s ever had a donut. The boys are pretty strict with his diet, which keeps him very healthy and playful.

    Wow, Dawn, I got tired just reading that! The money is good, but man, you’ve got to be exhausted!

    Poor Bailey! We’ve had our share of dog halos here, so I sympathize. Mass cleaning, organizing, purging…..please send that vibe my way. I had been working on it slowly, but it stopped when all the craziness started in May.

    BTW, I love the expression Bailey has in the picture. My dogs have sent it my way a few times. I call it the “Bad human, what was I thinking when I chose you” look.

    Enjoy the RWA convention. I’m sure you’ll have a great time, even feeling under the weather. And, it’s always nice to have a dress that Wows.

    Julie, thanks on RWA, I’m looking forward to it.

    How do we collect all this stuff we need to clean out? It’s amazing.

    Bailey definitely looked annoyed. But he didn’t have to wear the cone very long and he’s back to his normal self now.
