Welcome to the shortest week ever!! I work on Monday and Friday only!! This weekend was filled with a lot of errands and I took almost no pictures!! I know, right? I failed majorly. Though I got a lot done. Bare with me while I bore you with the details.
Saturday: I had to get an oil change and repair a flat tire that I got on Friday so I headed over to Meineke at 9:00 am. They tried to rope me in to getting all my tires replaced and wouldn’t fix my spare unless I paid for 4 new tires to which I said peace out!!! The guy came over and showed me my air filter to which I said “Yeah, I know that is why I am here.” So when my car was ready I confirmed they replaced the air filter and he said No?! Say What?! Why the hell show it to me then. I said I wanted it done. So then he looks and finds they don’t have one and needs to have one sent over, which should take another 30 minutes. Womp Womp!
The whole time I am there I am calling my Dad and the Animal Shelter because my Dad saw blood in his dog’s urine so he needed to get his dog to the vet but he was busy all day (he referees basketball). I had said I would take the dog for him so he wouldn’t worry all weekend. They weren’t answering their phones though so I called like 20 times.
After I finally got the air filter put in I had to stop at another car shop to get my tire fixed. They of course didn’t have the size tire I needed but he could order it. It would take an hour or two, so I left my tire there to be fixed so I could head south to pick up my Dad’s dog. The vet still wasn’t picking up the phone so I just picked up his dog and took her to the vet. They had reduced hours but open. Since I didn’t technically have an appointment I told them I would wait (which ended up being an 1-1/2 hour wait) and once the vet saw her confirmed it was a UTI and kidney stones. Poor pup will be on antibiotics for a month or more and will have to pass the stones. This is the only pic I took.
It ended up being just around 3:00 pm before I headed back home. I should mention I live about 40-50 minutes NW of my Dad, I hit some traffic on the way back thanks to the fact that just off my exit is the mall. So I ended up getting home at 4:30 dropped off my Dog at home and then headed to get my tire from the shop put on. I then went grocery shopping and to the Dollar Tree to pick up some more tins for cookies I made as gifts. Then to the liquor store to pick up some gift items.
Needless to say after this I was exhausted when I finally got home around 7:30 or so. I ended up watching some Christmas movies with a Redd’s Strawberry Ale.
Sunday: I want to say that it was a nice relaxing day but after a ton of laundry done, cleaning my spare bedroom, changing the sheets on my bed and putting away all the laundry. Then I started a baking marathon.
I started with prepping some fruit salad for the week and even had some for breakfast.
Then I baked 4 dozen chocolate chip cookies for my co-workers gifts.
I had to head out for a few more ingredients so I hit up Wal-Mart which wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I got Seamus a few toys and when I got home I wrapped them but he heard a squeak and he started to play with it, so I decided to let him go ahead and open them tonight.
I baked another 4 dozen chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. Then I baked some puppy treats for Seamus. Then a guest post recipe I was working on.
I didn’t finish baking till about 8 pm and the only thing I had the energy for dinner was some grapes, 1/2 a banana and some cheese. It was good though.
I am really ready now for three days of
How was your weekend?

Holy crap you needed rest. I hate when days go like your Saturday went.
It was a crazy weekend! Sunday was crazy too. I am so glad to be having the next few days off. I need it. Hope the rest of the week is restful for you too!!
Melissa @ Loving Life Moore says
After a weekend like that, I’m sure you NEED a short week this week! Thank goodness you have one! Can you believe Christmas is in two days?! Enjoy your relaxation! xo
Thank you so much! I was actually thankful to get back to work so I could rest!! Haha! I can’t believe it is 2 days away, but so excited for it!! Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
All the fruit you posted on Instagram looked so delicious. I’m taking a trip to the store today to buy some!
I am hoping it will keep me full and head off any holiday weight gain! 😉 Eat all the fruit!!!! Haha!

REST UP! that was one busy day! and yay to short work weeks!!!
Thanks, girl! I am going to try. I am sleeping over at my brothers tomorrow so I should have some monkeys jumping on my bed! 😉 Should be fun!
I am so jealous you have so much time off!!! I’m working today and tomorrow and I’ll be back at 8am on Thursday!
Ugh that really stinks! It is always pretty quiet here so I always save a few vacation days to take off. Hope it isn’t too busy.

Kerri @ Simplicity Interrupted says
Girl, you are a busy bee! Enjoy your two-day work week! 😉
It was crazy for sure! I would have loved a break in there somewhere but it was not to be. 🙁 I am very excited for this week especially since I am spending it with my nieces on the South Shore. Hope you have a wonderful week celebrating!
Enjoy your short week of work and have a very Merry Christmas Kerry!
Thank you Angi! I hope you have a very Merry Christmas too!

You were in my dream last night. We were waiting in line for something (I think non blogging related?) and we were eating Christmas cookies. We eventually got split up. You got what we were in line for, and I ended up in ballet class.
…I need to stop drinking so much alcohol and reading blogs before bed. HAHA
Haha!! That is priceless!!! The eating Christmas cookies part makes sense. Once a ballerina, always a ballerina. Haha!
Poor puppy sister. 🙁 Hope she gets better quickly. I always feel so bad when animals are sick because they don’t know what’s going on, just that they don’t feel well. :/
Seamus squeaking his toy is so damn cute!!!! hahah 😀
I know I feel bad too because my Dad is struggling to give her the medicine. I will hopefully be able to help when I am down there today. He loves his new toys I have been in squeak hell, but he loves it so I am trying to tone it out! 😉

Who wouldn’t love to receive some sweet cookies?? Always good 🙂
Thank you! Homemade cookies are always the best treat. 😉
I love apples! That looks gooood 🙂 merry Christmas, girl!
Thank you. It was so easy to make too! Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!!

I wish I was your co-worker so I could get some cookies 🙂 Glad your dad’s dog will be okay… sounds scary.
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and thanks for linking up!
Thanks! They seemed to enjoy them! It was really scary and she is on the mend now. I did have a great Christmas, thank you. Have a Happy New Year!
From all of that, I am now craving grapes and cheese!
Car places are seriously the worst! They want to add everything on and rarely do what you came in for in the first place. Good for you for getting it all done like a champ, though!
I felt very French with the grapes and cheese. Can’t go wrong! I hate to feel like they are trying to take advantage. I know I will need new tires this year, but for them to refuse to fix the tire without replacing them all was ridiculous.
