The weekend we all are falling apart....

I'm dragging...

It's Monday.

& I'm late at blogging this morning.

But the good news is because I'm doing it from home & woke up at 8am & just now getting my coffee & sitting down.

.... & I needed that coffee...

I just got done cleaning up a load of doggie diarrhea.

Yeah - Monday is still Monday.

This week is going to be weird being on vacation & trying to get my house Christmas decorated (I cant believe its that time of year) & trying not to throw up (Thanks antibiotics - more on that later) & life is just tossing stuff around at us.

So just a quick weekend recap...

Friday night around 12 I woke up with the most excruciating gum pain I  have ever felt. What do you do at midnight when you have pain like that?  I just cry really hard.  That usually makes things better - right?

I ended up going to Google & looking what to do in an emergency & had my counter top full of everything to swish in my mouth... & then took about 1200 mg of Advil ... luckily, it got me to sleep.

But then we had to get up at 6am to get the dogs to the groomers.  These 7am appointments are crazy but the hubs always wants to get it over with.

Harvey Dent, not so much.

He's not a good traveler - he is a homebody.  He even hates being in the front yard with us - he just wants to be in his home, in his back yard, in his world.  So when we got to Pet Smart & we're taking him to the groomer's area, it wasn't too surprising to see him freak out & walk a whole aisle squatting with doggie diarrhea.  Hello 7am ... that's how you are welcomed.

Ricky & I ended up just going over to Panera for breakfast & then over to Walmart where I was excited about picking up some adult coloring things.

We had a few appointments we had to take care of & when it was over, Ricky went to pick up the dogs & I was finally on my way to ImmediDent - where their logo says, "You're Walk IN Dentist"...

... except when you walk in, they tell you they are full with appointments & they can't see you.

WHAT?  Why does your sign say, "walk in"?

I was so upset thinking I was going to have to go through another night of pain & just drove home a sobbing mess... & then thought, I'm going to call them & see if they have an appointment.

Yep... they had an appointment an hour later.

Thanks so much for letting me know that when I was standing in front of you crying.


But I ended up getting home & cleaning up my face & then heading back down to the dentist.

Leave it to me.  My back tooth that has already had a root canal & has a crown, apparently has an infection in it & needed to be retreated.

A root canal tooth that needs a root canal.

perfect.  Just what I wanted for the holidays.  Who doesn't love dental procedures & dental expenses?

So the rest of Saturday night just had me popping antibiotics & more Advil.  Good times.

But the rest of Saturday also had us watching Harvey because when Ricky went to pick him up from the groomers, Harvey got sick again in the back of Ricky's car.

I'm telling you, this weekend was NOT the best.

BUT....the rest of the weekend, Harvey has been trying to go to the bathroom & can't.  Someone has suggested that he ate something that has messed up his system.

Really?  Odds are favorably high on this.

So we're keeping an eye on him right now & I'm getting an appointment for him to go to the vet.

... but it was Bruno who got sick this morning....


So I'm wondering if the dogs have some sort of virus happening?  I don't know what's going on.

... back to the weekend...

Sunday, we ended up just lounging around & we totally missed church.  I used the time to catch up on my wedding editing because I was heading out to a friend's house to take family pictures.

This precious couple had all their family in from out of town for Thanksgiving & it was the only day we could take pictures.  It ended up being 38 degrees for the day & I thought it was going to be miserable.  It actuallly wasn't too bad really.  Of course, I had on 3 layers of everything...& the family was great & cooperative & we banged out a load of pictures in less then an hour.

So the rest of the night left me editing editing & editing...

watching The Walking Dead (FINALLY an answer!) & the American Music Awards....

& watching dogs & their pooping habits while I'm sick to my stomach because of antibiotics (I HATE antibiotics)

I've had better weekends - that's for sure.

How was your weekend?


  1. I hope everyone gets better at your house really quick and that you can enjoy this week off.

    By the way, I love that headband and the fingerless gloves. Did you make those?

  2. Yikes, sounds like a bad weekend :( I hope the tooth pain is better and the dogs are recovering. I spent the weekend sick too. It seems to be going around right now.

  3. Oh gosh so sorry to hear about your tooth - that is really the worst pain! Hope you feel better! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. Wow, that sounds like a doozy! Hope you and the pups feel better soon!!

  5. Boo to a bad weekend! Hope your vacation turns around and is much better! (And no tooth pain!)

  6. Oh dear Lord, doggie diarrhea and emergency dentists...these are NOT a few of my favorite things. Hang in there lady. I hope every being under your roof is on the mend by close of business today!

  7. Oh man... I get SO overwhelmed when my dogs are sick (love the names!), or my teeth hurt, or I have an ear infection. You had TWO of those things in one weekend. Rough! Hope your week off is a good, relaxing one!

  8. Wow, what a weekend you had. Hope you feel better soon! Praying you get your decorations done and have a lovely Thanksgiving.

  9. blech!! i hope things turn around soon!!! hang in there!

  10. Dental stuff is just the worst!!! The WORST!!! I feel your pain girl and am sending you all kinds of hugs because that is just awful.

    On a brighter note, I had seen on Instagram that Walmart was carrying those coloring books so I obviously need some. Though to be honest, I am not above coloring a Scooby Doo one too! Hahaha! Feel better!

  11. Boo :( Poor pups and poor you! Hope you're all on the mend soon!

  12. Oh bless your heart! Sounds like you need another weekend to recover from this crappy weekend. (No pun intended) I hope you and the doggies feel better soon!

  13. ugh you poor thing! I had mouth pain when we were in New Zealand and it was AWFUL! No fun when you can't get into a dentist either. So glad they could see you!

  14. "I just got done cleaning up a load of doggie diarrhea." BAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! I legit BURST out laughing at work when I read this!
    Tooth pain is awful. :(

  15. Sounds like a rough weekend all around. Hope the week gets betters for you.

  16. Girl I've been dragging for like a week and half now....Just seem to be off my game.

    I hope your teeth get better, root canal are no fun from what I've heard. And seriously girl, I hope your family feels better. I think pumpkin helps? Or am I wrong on that I hope he can go poop too.
