Weekly Wrap-Up

Happy Friday, y’all! Have you had a great week? Mine has been a steady kind of busy but not as chaotic as I thought it might be so I’m thankful for that.

Brianna has been slowly packing away and moving things that she’s not going to need over the next few weeks and taking them to Andrew’s apartment. {sniff} Josh has been chomping at the bit to move into her room. Because he works third and Brianna’s room is in the basement, I understand his impatience. It’s a lot quieter down there during the day.

My niece and my little old lady dog were really enjoying each other’s company.

So, last Friday, he moved the rest of her stuff out of the room. The plan was to move his stuff in, then put her stuff in his room. It will be our guest room when Brianna and Andrew come to visit.

Unfortunately, he only got most of his stuff moved in before he ran out of time in his crazy schedule.

So, on Sunday, Brian and I finished moving Josh’s stuff out of his room and got it ready to move Brianna’s stuff in. By the time she came home Sunday night, she had a nice, comfy place to sleep. I told her to just not open the closet. {grin}

Tuesday, my mom, sister, and I got together to nail down reception food details. Since we’re just doing finger foods and my mom, sister, and aunt, along with Brian’s mom, volunteered to help, we decided to do the food ourselves.

Have I mentioned how much I’m looking forward to April 29?

She just wanted someone to play with her. Plllleeeeaaassseee.

I was really dreading Thursday. I had a lot on my to-do list and I wasn’t sure how long a couple of the errands would take. It was a pleasant surprise when the whole day went more smoothly than expected.

I had a health risk screening for our health insurance at 9:45. It was about 25 minutes away from the house. I was back home sometime between 10:30 and 10:45. See? Pleasant surprise.

Then, I had to round up 3 of the 5 cats to take them for their rabies shots. Two of them were in the house. I coaxed the outside kitty with treats. They were not liking me too much.

I wound up chatting with a sweet older lady while I waited at the vet’s office. I should have known something was up when I saw she had her sunglasses on inside. She was there to have to her 16-year-old cat euthanized because her health had declined quickly to the point that the cat couldn’t even stand up anymore.

Oh, y’all. My heart just broke for this lady and I was so glad I hadn’t pulled out my phone as soon as I sat down. She needed someone to talk to. {sniff} She was having such a hard time saying goodbye to her fur-baby.

This one forgave me pretty quickly for the whole vet incident.

I’ve had to wait 45 minutes or longer just for rabies shots (no office visit) before, so I had my second pleasant surprise when I only spent about 20 minutes at the vet’s office. That gave me time to go home, eat lunch, and jot down a grocery list before picking up my niece and heading to the grocery store.

Then, it was back home to put away the groceries and fix dessert to take to my mom’s for dinner. See? Busy day, but, thankfully, not chaotic.

Today, I think I will once again endeavor to be a hermit. That worked out quite well last Friday. {grin}

  1. So close to the wedding!! Seems so strange – and I’m not even related. 🙂

    Here’s to smooth planning and no crazy hectic weeks.

  2. I don’t know if this would work in your situation but for my wedding reception I had a potluck. Our reception was held at my grandparent’s farm and on the way to the church people just dropped off their food. My grandmother has lots of sisters so they went to the farm right after the wedding to set things up while we took pictures. The food was delicious and it saved us a ton of money.

    1. That sounds fun. I don’t think it would work in our situation because the groom lives in another state so most of his family will be traveling in for the wedding. I bet that was fun, though – and tasty!
