    Look at that! Way to find the loophole, Peek!
    C/P from other thread:
    Mine was not nearly restful enough. We spent all day Saturday moving DB from one end of campus to the other without the benefit of a pickup, large vehicle, or cart to haul his belongings. Why does everyone in my family drive compact cars?
    Sunday we were at my parents' home for Mother's Day and my birthday. I got a yarn ball winder, and now I shall WIND ALL THE THINGS! And it will be glorious.

    I hate yo stinking guts. ;P

    Lol. Tiring. I try to take advantage of my weekends and enjoy myself, but less and less they're feeling like weekends. I seem to be obligated to do something every weekend (I'm kind of a doormat :/). I did get to go on a nice long hike in the canyon, get some cleaning done, and I made dinner for BF's mom for mothers day (mine was out of town). Overall, it went well.

    I overslept this morning by an HOUR (woke up at 8:02. Supposed to be here at 8.) so that sort of threw my morning in a funk.

    Aaaaah way to beat the system.

    I did absolutely nothing yesterday.  I don't think I ever even put on shoes.  I also ate everything I could find, so that was... awesome.

    I'm off today, too, so I'm going to try to go for a long run to make up for some of that.

    I just did this in my month board before coming back over here!

    This weekend was an over all great week.

    Working on Friday went by pretty fast with the party of 25 we had. Some of our regulars from BWW came in and saw us (my bff and I bartend together and worked at BWW together).

    Saturday was even better. Got mani/pedis, went to dinner (was told I had a fake ID, come on I am 27), then we just went out for drinks. I cannot tell you the last time we stayed out until bar close. It definitely showed on Sunday.

    Sunday we didn't do a whole lot. Went to my grandmas for a cookout for lunch and then went to FSIL's for dinner for mother's day. Oh and FSIL said happy birthday, right in front of FILs, did they bother, nope. Typical of them. They do the same for Dan on his birthday. I think I passed out on the couch at 7:30 last night.

    What system did you beat?

    My weekend was good. In bed by 7p Friday night, cause I was EXHAUSTED. Cleaned 80% of our basement on Saturday which felt so good. It was such a minefield. Plus, I found my wedding pictures, which I hadn't seen in 6 months. Saturday night we took my parents out for their anniversary and Sunday we went to breakfast for mother's day. It was a good mix of productivity and relaxation.

    Saturday was good. Sunday I had to work all day...which I'm really getting tired of. How was yours?

    I was going to post a thread about what everyone was making for dinner tonight...I've been at work since 5:30 this morning so I'm already thinking about dinner. :)

    I'm thinking this plus seared scallops with butter and garlic..

    My weekend starting Saturday night was good. Everything before Saturday pretty much sucked beyond belief but it's all good because life has bumps in the road and we just got to get through them. FI and I celebrated Mother's Day with his family this weekend which was nice to see both of them. My parents are at the beach all this week so we will celebrate my mom next Sunday. 

    This week I'm looking forward to getting things back on their normal schedule at work and getting little things done that I've been putting off because of exhaustion. I just need a vacation and I need it now. I can't wait for August so I can go to the beach and lay there.

    Friday night BF helped me move some furniture to Savers, then we went to the store to get me a sandwich, Django Unchained, some BL Staw-beer-ritas and an Ice Cream cake, then headed back to my house. I feel like I never get to just relax with him at my house, and it was a nice change of pace.

    The movie was also pretty stellar.

    Saturday I worked at the grocery store, ran a few errands, then went to BF's - we had Chipotle and a few more Straw-beer-ritas. I got sick after eating Chipotle leftovers before, so I'm always super apprehensive when I eat there now :(

    Sunday I made my mom breakfast, and then we headed out to my cousin's son's First Communion party. I got to see some awesome family members that I don't get to see often and my cousin's mom sort of told BF that he should reconsider giving me a hard time about going to church (he's undecided - not Athiest but doens't follow another religion).☺.

    I must say, though, I'm pretty P.O.'d at my mom over yesterday. Her BF wanted to buy her lobsters for mother's day. Nice. Great. He can't afford to get lobsters for everyone. Totally fine. My mom said that if we wanted lobsters too we could give him some money.... Unfortunately I was the only one who didn't have money for lobsters. So I ate one meal while everyone else ate something different. I mean, if you want to buy her a lobster dinner, great, but don't do it on Mother's day at her house while her kids are there. Why couldn't they do it at his house on Saturday night? Or tonight? Or tomorrow night? Or Friday night? Whatever.

    Worked both days this weekend. BF brought over Chinese on Saturday night. Didn't get to do much with my mom for Mother's Day on Sunday because she works nights at the same place I do, so that was a bummer. I brought her a card and her favorite ice cream for the few minutes I actually got to see her between our shifts. I will take her out to dinner this week and that'll be that. After she left for work, BF and I watched the documentary "Earth" and I squeeed over all the cute little baby animals. I am off today, so there will be friends and food and possibly shoe shopping.

    @minskat30, no suggestions, but that recipe with your additions sounds delicious!

    @sydiaries- That is BS about the lobster.  I mean, come on!  Django Unchained was an awesome movie though, wasn't it?

    @amapola- Was the documentary sad at all?  I can't stand little furry animals dying...even though I know it happens every day.

    @Liv- Sorry to hear about Ty and feeling sick!  Hopefully everything checks out at the vet.

    My weekend was long. Work was crazy busy and of course we were short people again. :( I got a lot of wedding stuff sort of figured out.

    @cu97tiger - it wasn't letting us post new "discussions" this morning.  So I opened a poll to get around that.

    My weekend was exhausting, but good.  Mom and I walked a 5K on Saturday with the dogs, and then I spent the day at my parents' helping them clean and get stuff together so they can hopefully put the house on the market soon.

    Sunday I slept in and then went for a 6 mile run on a new trail, and I'm kind of in love with it.  It follows a river for most of it, so it's absolutely gorgeous, and I rescued a turtle about 15 seconds in because he was just sitting in the middle of the path, and I didn't want him to get stepped on or run over by a bike.  I tripped over a big rock on my way back, and I'm feeling that today, but it's nothing a little advil and some ice won't fix.  

    This is a picture I stopped and took on the trail:

    @peek- I can't see the picture but good for you for the turtle intervention.  That was kind of you.

    Thursday FI had surgery on both of his feet...so I spent the weekend playing nurse. His surgery went well and he's already doing a lot better, so I think he'll have a pretty quick recovery time.

    Friday we spent all day in bed watching movies. It was nice to have such a chill day.

    Saturday I cleaned the house and ran a couple errands.

    Sunday we hosted a Mother's Day Brunch so I was busy with cooking and entertaining most of the morning. Then we had some friends over for dinner - leftover white chicken chili.

    All in all, pretty relaxing.

    I actually had a really good weekend despite not doing much :)

    Friday night I had the apartment to myself, so after getting my eyebrows done and taking a quick trip to Target I drank half of one of those big bottles of Barefoot Moscato, ate junk, had a long phone conversation with my old roommate, and watched old episodes of The Office.

    Saturday I got serious and tried out my new Jillian Michaels tape, which totally kicked my ass (can we still curse?).  Then BF and I took a nice long walk and wandered over to his friend's house to meet their new puppy--I am now obsessed.  Afterwards I snuck in a nice little nap and then we had taco night with some friends.

    Sunday we went to brunch, saw Iron Man 3, went shopping, and made pizza for dinner, which we're getting really awesome at (I must credit my pizza sauce, which I think I have now perfected, yay!).  We also re-watched The Hunger Games before bed.

    Now I'm just sad because it's Monday and I'm back at work :(

    @Belle- What did you think of Iron Man 3?  I was a little disappointed in it to be honest...not as good as the last one I thought.
  • Options

    I just c&ped this from the other thread:

    "My weekend was good, the parentals camped out in my neck of the woods so I got to spend the weekend with them. Got lots of lectures, guilt, Judge Judy and finally found a decent boxed wine thanks to them. Also, the campground had little to no wifi as well as crappy cell reception so I really felt like I was roughing it.

    Sunday I came home, bf and I had lunch went to Home Depot and then some other stores to get pool supplies and flowers for my flower boxes."

    I also wanted to add that I had a really hard time this weekend seeing my parent's 13.5 year old golden retriever. I love animals more than anything, but when she needs to be carried up and down stairs, can't see or hear, covered in tumors and can't bark because they think there's a tumor on her throat/larynx/whatever I just don't think it's fair for her to live. My parents are going on a cross country trip with her in two weeks and they're just prepared for "whatever happens, happens". She's in pain, it's time to let her go. I said my goodbyes to her hoping (yes hoping) that it would be the last time I saw her. She wasn't the same dog I saw six months prior. Usually when she sees me she gets so excited. This time, she didn't even recognize me until early Sunday morning. I think that's when we said our goodbyes in private. She let me pet her for like a good hour and I gave her a few treats.

    Sorry for being a Debbie Downer, I had to get that out. Now I'm crying at my desk.

    At least work isn't so bad today!

    @minskat30 It was okay, but I did find it pretty predictable.  I pretty much knew exactly what was going to happen from five minutes into the movie...

    @buddysmom80 - That breaks my heart. When I worked at the vets office there was a lady that came in a lot with a 17 year old Husky. She had spent her life savings on replacing all his knees, his hips, removing tumor after tumor.. His quality of life was awful. She just carried him everywhere. That was when I realized that 1. Some people have a hard time letting go and can't bring themselves to do it 2. Quality of life is everything. I'm so sorry that your parents are being selfish (sorry if that offends :/ ) and that your pup is having to suffer. Hopefully she goes soon, and peacefully. Sorry you're hurting (((((buddysmom)))))

    @kmbryant2413 you broke my @ cherry! Hahahaha! I saw a pop up box, I go "wtf is this nonsense?" I don't know how I feel about the new forum changes, but that was pretty helpful.

    Anyway, yes, I agree, you're not offending at all. Where my parents live now, their vet told them as long as she's eating, drinking, peeing and pooping she's okay.

    I think my dad is the one who's having the hard time letting go. They have their little morning routine and I think that he has this whole: "she's fine, the vet says she's fine, so she's fine" as he's carrying her up a flight of stairs lol.

    Yeah, the more I think about it, it's definetly my dad who's having a problem with this. I won't see them until October and he told me to make sure I find a pet-friendly hotel for them near me as my mom rolls her eyes behind my dad.

    @buddysmom...that just made me tear up in my office.  I'm so sorry and hope she goes peacefully.  It is hard to say goodbye to our fur-babies.  Many years ago when I was in my early 20s, I had a 13 year old cat I ended up having surgery on because the vet said she would make it through and she might have another year or two with me post-surgery (she didn't live for more than a day).  In retrospect, I wish I had never put her through it and feel terrible about it to this day...I also am still mad at the vet for giving me hope.  Hugs to you and to your parents, who I'm sure are struggling with letting go.  Is she on pain meds at least?  Is the vet telling your parents the same thing you realize (i.e., its time to let go)? 
  • Options

    @minskat30 I'm sorry about that!

    In regards to the vet, my parents live in a very rural area so they go to a vet that specializes in farm animals, horses, etc so I don't know what their opinion is on quality of life whereas my vet would've probably told my mom it was time to let her go. Also the closest "specialists" to my parents would be Cornell which is a two hour drive for them so any other treatment (ie: biopsies, surgeries, etc) would end up taking a lot of time and money.

    She's not on any pain medication she gets a pill for her thyroid and a glucosamine supplement.

    @minskat30 - Yes. Total BS. There's a way to do it without being rude. When they're together they get selfish in a rude way. You want lobsters for just you two? Go somewhere else! It's not hard.

    @buddysmom - it is hard letting go. My dog was 16, blind, deaf, incontinent and had a few tumors also. We didn't have the money to take care of her.

    @Buddysmom80 I'm sorry about your puppy :( We had golden's growing up and its hard to see them suffering. FI's parents are going through something similar with their cockapoo right now. He has liver cancer, and slows down a bit more every week. FI's dad is ready to let him go before the worst of it sets in, but his mom's just not ready to let go. FI's just kinda of in denial about the whole thing, and siding mostly with his mom. I'm staying out of it, but I'll say here (amongst friends) that I agree with his dad that its time to start talking about letting him go peacefully. I know that I'll be a wreck when its time to put one of our kitties down, but I hope I can be strong enough to let them go before they are in pain...

    Other than that, I had a good weekend. We had some issues to resolve with the house (what the fuck else is new...) but *fingers crossed* they seem to be working themselves out. We went to see Iron Man 3 also, and I really liked it, but I LOVE RDJ, so I might be biased ;) 
    Sunday we went to brunch at a local brewery with FIL's which was a blast, then had a power nap and went to dinner at my parents, which was fun also.

    @peekaboo2011 That trail looks lovely, and your turtle rescue reminds me of walks I used to take with my sister by our dad's house.  We rescued several turtles in our teens!

    @Buddysmom80
    So sorry to hear about your parent's dog!  It is so true that some people can't let go, and that kind of selfishness really bothers me, when you know that an animal is in pain.

    My weekend was good.  We visited about 12 picnic shelter/pavilion sites in 9 different parks, and narrowed it down to our top 3 for our wedding ceremony and reception.  There is a definite frontrunner!  The venue is listed as being "outdoor," but is fully enclosed.  It also overlooks a lake in the front, has a marshy view with possible space for a ceremony in back, has an epic playground right next to the venue, so kids could run and play and parents could keep an eye on them through the many windows.  It is bright and large and rents for cheap by the day.  Basically it has everything we were looking for, is in budget and is only about 25-30 minute drive.  The only downside is that we can't reserve it until January of 2014 for Spring/Summer of 2014, and the time we are looking at is very popular.

    B took me out to a lovely breakfast for mom's day and A made me a few adorable gifts:
    A puzzle that said "You Rock!"
    A layered hear shaped card
    A "coupon book" for such treasures as a 15 minute massage, 20 hugs, and so on.

    Edited because I can't tell one cat icon from another.  ;)

    @buddysmom80 So sorry to hear about your pup. :( It's so hard when you can see that your fur-baby is ready to go and either you or your parents (in your case) just aren't ready to say goodbye. When our first golden passed it was a really difficult decision even though everyone in the family agreed it was her time and the vet basically said she only had a couple weeks left to live. Thinking about it still brings tears to my eyes 7 years later.

    My dad was doing a lot of the same things... carrying the dog up and down the stairs, carrying her out to the backyard, etc. One day he took her outside and all she wanted to do was lay down. I think that told us more than anything that she was trying to say it was her time to leave. I'll be thinking about you and your family and your dog. I hope she goes peacefully on her own without pain and that your dad is finally able to see that she is suffering and not living the kind of life any dog wants to live.
