I decided to make my first day of fall break all about ME. I got up, had breakfast, showered, and went to do a little pampering. I didn't go overboard by any stretch, but I enjoyed every second. My first stop was at Starbucks for a venti caramel machiatto. Then I headed to the nail salon for a nice, relaxing hot stone pedicure. Oh my! That felt SOOOOOO good! The massage chair was especially nice since I wrenched my back in the shower. Having back spasms probably kept me from doing more than I might have done otherwise. (Much to John's delight. LOL) After having my toesies pampered, I made a quick stop at Ulta. I've started using the Ulta brand mineral makeup, and I LOVE it. The shade I had gotten is really more of my summer color, so I got a lighter shade for the fall/winter. My last stop was at Four Paws to get Ali a new collar. It has lady bugs on it, so it's perfect for the Bug. :)
Speaking of the Bug...we were at the lake this past weekend, and she found something. We have no idea what, but she must have rolled around in it a time or twelve because she stunk. Before we left to come home yesterday, I gave her a good bath. I don't think it would have been possible to ride for three hours cooped up in the truck with her.
I had to take them to the vet this afternoon for their shots. Their appointment was for 3:30, but about 2 Amanda called and asked if I could bring them in then because they had an emergency coming in. It's so much easier when John is here to go with me, but I managed. Bama did better this go round than he usually does, but Ali was a squirmer. Everything was good for both of them. Except for Bama's weight. Dr. SanMiguel said he is a "little pudgy" and that he doesn't need to get table scraps anymore. (JOHN is the one to blame for that!)
We're going back to the lake tomorrow when John gets home and we're staying until Sunday. We have some yard work to do, but I'm hoping for a lot of time to porch sit. :)
I guess that's about it for now. Have a GREAT day, and
ROLL TIDE! What...did you think that because my guys lost on Saturday I would suddenly stop showing my love for them?? :)
