One of this afternoon’s highlights involved a lot of veggies for lunch.
Spinach, spring mix, cucumbers, red, yellow and green peppers, chick peas, black olives, sprouts, Parmesan cheese, and ground pepper drizzled in oil and vinegar.
Another included this crazy guy tearing into a new toy out of my hands before I could even get the groceries out of my car.
He absolutely kills me.
Backing up to this morning, I spent the majority of it at Starbucks after I dropped Scott off at work. After blogging, I needed to do an email overhaul and study, and knew getting out of the house would be the only way that would happen.
I ordered a skinny vanilla late and an egg white, spinach, and feta wrap for breakfast. It’s so darn tasty, but looks pretty undesirable when I try to take a photo of it, so I decided to leave it in the sleeve this time. You’re welcome.
After a couple of hours, I packed up my things and ran some errands. The first stop was to make a return to Wal-mart (they will seriously return anything…), followed by a trip to PetsMart to get Roadie a new tag.
Apparently, he lost his while we were gone. He’s such a nut.
I also restocked in dental treats for him and the girls, since we all know how those pet teeth cleanings go…
After a trip to the grocery store, I came home to quickly put everything away before needing to get back out the door with Cali for an appointment at the vets.
I swear if it’s not one animal with issues, it’s another. She’ll be okay, but we have had some trouble with her using the litter box over the past couple of months. I thought it was behavioral until she started walking and acting weird the last couple of days, and as it turns out she has a bladder infection.
Poor girl. She’s at the vets right now getting some other tests done and I will be leaving to pick her up as soon as I publish this.
All of this animal stuff got me thinking… they’re kind of like children. People constantly ask us when we are going to have kids, and on some level I feel like we already do. Three furry ones.
Aspen, Cali and Roadie are all very needy and have had a past full of health issues. I feel like we are getting to know our vets office too well, and it gets me worried to think of how it will be to juggle them and children one day. Not counting the incessant need for attention all three of them seem to have, their bills make me want to get a job outside of the house sooner than later.
How do those of you with children and needy pets do it? Are there special money trees and extra hands out there that I don’t know about? Because I truly applaud you.
Anyways, there’s your answer… in case you were wondering about our timing for future family planning.
One day soon when we figure out how to kick the spontaneity and travel habit, we will revisit the thought. Maybe. For now, these guys feel like our children and keep us plenty busy.
Time to get back to the vets, then grab this one and head out for a run!
After playtime, of course.
