Today was a pretty good day at work. I sometimes get really annoyed by certain phone calls. Today that kind of call happened late in the day & i threw what i call a mini-fit (you know...like a tantrum...but not an all-out one. No cursing, no tears, just some loud venting with a lot of "good grief!" & the word "ridiculous". After we hung up, i mean). But i accomplished a ton at work today & that always feels good!
After work i headed to pick up Fievel from the groomer. MAN, he was filthy! And stinky! That may be the longest we have ever gone without getting him groomed. Fievel has gone there his whole little life, but everytime i've moved, i've tried to find him a place nearer to me. I always go back to Petworks. They rock. I think i will stop trying to find someone near me. Unless we move an hour away or something. Ha!
When Fievel gets groomed, he comes home EXHAUSTED! He'll eat, pee, & then sleep. That's it. He spends a lot of time bugging us in the evenings. Mainly because he's been home sleeping all day while we've been at work. I think at the groomer's there is a lot of action & him probably freaking out watching the other dogs. HA! He is sleeping right now. Yay.
After i got Fievel, I had to run by my parents to drop off a gift for my sister's fiance. Mom & Dad are going to Mandeville tomorrow & Mike's birthday is today. It was great running over to mom & dad's...i haven't been there in awhile & haven't seen them since our anniversary! Too long. I missed them. Mom & I talked for a little while. I was staring at her tree...it is the perfect size. It's what i want for next year. We have a mini-tree, which has been just fine for our first 2 Christmases together & i love it just as much this year - but i've started wanting a regular size one. Not HUGE but a regular sized one. Mom's is tall but narrow (like yours, Patti!) & i LOVE it. It's perfect. I was staring at it, thinking all this, & mom said, "I want to get a different one next year. A huge one. So you could have that one next year if you want it." Um, what? HAHA. She read my mind. She also said i can store it there. We have noooo storage, so this is a very good thing! After Christmas, mom & i are going to go shopping & maybe i can find some ornaments for next year's tree on sale! :)
I leave you with some pics. I love our tree & stockings. And our wreath is kinda cute, too. :)
i think mom gave me this a few years ago. i heart it.
our little mini-tree! this was brad's actually, but he only had lights on it! i added ornaments & the ribbon. the red balls came from potterybarn. they were really inexpensive (believe it or not!). The other ornaments are tiny things like stockings, nutcrackers, gingerbread houses, etc.
our stockings! i got them at potterybarn, too, with a giftcard i had for a wedding gift. They were on sale for like 5 bucks. I took them to The Creative Touch where i used to work & had them monogrammed. I absolutely love them. As you can see, they hang on our hutch. No mantels here!
Have a great weekend!
