Friday Five

TGIF!! This week has been warp speed and somehow we landed on Friday again. Now it’s time to share five random things about our week. Here’s mine:

  1. So last week I went shopping for tops. I found some at Macy, then went to pay and discovered they were having a “presale,” which meant that in order to get the 30% off, I had to pick up the clothes at a later date. I agreed, and save $40.00! I also had to drive back out yesterday to pick them up. But Wizard came with me and we went to lunch so it turned out to be a nice time.
  2. This week has been a bit of juggling with medical stuff (it’s boring to talk about) and changing pharmacies because our old pharmacy closed. But both Wizard and I got it all organized by the end of the week! This is a big win. My frustration is trying to get through to my ENT’s office, but once I do, they are super helpful, so I’m not complaining. I understand they are juggling a lot more than I am!
  3. I listened to the book IT’S ONE OF US by J.T. Ellison. I really loved the book, but didn’t love very end. Still it was a good book and I’m looking to read more of her work!
  4. I worked my first volunteer shift at the animal shelter. I have a lot to learn, and definitely need more experience getting the martingale collars on. I had one mishap (not the dogs fault!) that left me with a scratch on my arm. I don’t consider that a big deal, but my arm had to go the drama queen route and bleed a lot. I cleaned it up, it’s fine. I had a more experienced dog walker collar the dog (she even struggled!), and then I walked him and returned him safely to his kennel. He was a good boy once we got going and I didn’t have any more problems. I’m going to order the arm guards the other dog walker suggested. By the way, she wanted to give me her arm guards to use right then — these are really nice people who were so very patient with me. I will get better! Last comment — Wizard had a moment when he saw the scratch, but quickly recovered and realized I was fine. It’s going to happen and Wizard knows that, he’s just been a little protective of me lately.
  5. This weekend we are going to see Turbo play baseball on Saturday and Sunday, I’m having lunch with a friend while Wizard goes racing. It’ll be a fun and busy weekend.

That’s my five, and now I’d really love to hear yours! Happy Friday and I hope everyone has a great weekend!

    1. Score for you! Saving an extra $40 is fantastic! Having lunch with Wizard is another win.
    2. I’m sorry your old pharmacy closed. It’s always a hassle getting things transferred. Good thing you’re organized and have it all settled.
    3. I haven’t read any of J.T. Ellison. Sorry the end wasn’t as likeable as the rest of the read.
    4. Oh no, I hope you scratch isn’t too bad. Wizard’s a really good hubby. How nice of the other walker offering you her arm guards. You’re right, things like this will happen and you will do fine. I’m glad you are ordering your own arm guards :).
    5. Have a fantastic time at Turbo’s game and a great lunch with your friend.

    1a. I got my hair done today. I realized yesterday that she booked me a week ahead of my normal schedule. It worked out okay and I’ll be back to five weeks now.
    2a. It’s getting warm here so this Sunday the down comforter is coming off the bed. I’ll leave the down blanket on for hubs. He gets cold.
    3a. Next weekend our township does a collection of all the stuff we can’t throw away, like computers and paint cans. So I’m going to go around the house this weekend and put together a collection to take to them.
    4a. Still haven’t been able to read much. That really bugs me because I have so many books I really want to read.
    5a. There has been a bear in our area and we think it was actually over at C’s the other night. He said there was something BIG and making noises off his deck. The dogs were going nuts. Two nights ago, hubs got to see two bucks going at it in our back yard (we have about 10 feet of lawn before woods) just in the woods.

    I hope you have a really wonderful weekend!

    Viki, thanks. I’m sure my arm will be fine, but I made sure to wash it really well and put some strong antibiotic ointment I have from my doctor as a precaution. I have the arm guards in my cart. And now I know how I should handle it next time! And thanks on Turbo’s game — the weather’s a bit wonky, but we’re going to go anyway and hope the kids play.

    1) I got my hair done this week too. Hope you’re happy with yours!
    2) Hope the crazy weather doesn’t decide to test your decision to take the down comforter off!
    3) We have that collection now and a again too. The trick for us is not to forget to take the stuff on the right day! Good thing you’re planning ahead.
    4) I’m with you on reading. I hope it gets better for you.
    5) I’m so glad C didn’t let the dogs out! Hope the bear moves on (I never want to hurt them, I just don’t want to tangle with them!). Seeing the two big bucks is cool! I’d still want distance, but it’s so awesome to see them in person.

    I hope you have a good weekend!
