Everything is going well over here! Well, for one of us, at least. Little Miss Sadie had a vet appointment this afternoon.
(Sadie and the vet aren’t exactly best friends.)
Ryan and I are flying to Chicago on Friday for my friend Kristen’s wedding and since we’re going to have to board Sadie, we wanted to be sure she is healthy and that all of her shots are up to date. She needed a couple of shots today and handled them like a champ. The part of her visit that did not go so well was the basic examination of her ears, teeth, eyes and body.
When the vet approached Sadie, she hit the deck and then wiggled around and tried to hide behind me which had everyone laughing and calling her “Slink.” She’s ridiculous.
Also, how do dogs always seem to know they’re at a vet’s office? Within two minutes of our arrival, Sadie was shaking in my lap in the lobby and we had never even been to this vet’s office before. I think maybe the office smells too sterile and feels too cold. Or perhaps the German shepherd wearing a “cone of shame” in the waiting room gave it away?
Before Sadie’s vet appointment, I took her for a lunchtime walk on a shady path at a local park.
We stopped a few times to check out the lake and Sadie splashed around for a bit as she tried to coerce me into a game of fetch. Unfortunately no swimming is allowed at this particular park, so Sadie had to stay on her leash which I’m sure made her think I am super lame.
After our walk, we headed to the vet. We were there for longer than I anticipated but I left feeling good about vet we chose. (Thank you, Yelp reviews!)
Lunch today included a Subway club salad served with a side of chocolate-covered pecans.
After lunch, I started sorting through the box of giveaway clothes I had leftover after I sent a batch to Twice before our move. (Speaking of Twice, I’ve actually purchased a couple of “like new” Lululemon tops for less than half of their retail value from the site and have been quite impressed with the quality. Thought that might interest some of you!)
Anyway, thanks to your recommendations, I looked into ThredUP, another clothing resale website, and was happy to see that they accept even more brands than Twice. After requesting a free shipment bag last week, I filled it up today and plan to drop it in the mail tomorrow.
Thanks so much for the tip! I’m hoping they accept some of my stuff!
Question of the Afternoon
- How often do you clean out your closet?
I think I go through my closet four times a year. I read somewhere to go through your closet at the end of each season and get rid of whatever you didn’t wear that season. This didn’t really work or apply in Florida since we basically had one season, but I still thought the idea was a good one!
