What Day Is It?

feels like a monday, pretty sure it's wednesday, i'm hoping for a friday but my head is all over the place so it could be sunday, november 4, 2018 for all i know.  my schedule is all screwed up and i haven't had my usual post schedule to keep me focused.  but i mean, does anyone actually notice when you don't post something to your blog for a week and half besides you?  probably not.  let's skip the apologies and pleasantries and get straight into -

things i've been up to: 

pet sitting my parents dogs, moving things out of my current apartment, scheduling steph and tara show podcasts, watching the blackhawks play dismally, helping holly with her podcast, celebrating betsy's birthday, attending john's cousin's wedding up in wisconsin dells, celebrating our 3 year anniversary, taking a friend to surgery, going to doctor's appointments of my own, planning hawkeye's 7th birthday which is one week from today, you know, life.  i enjoy it being almost street fest season but part of me also hates it because i have way way way too much to do.  everyone wants to make plans when the weather gets nice.

this is from her 3rd birthday and now she's up to 7 candles?! i just can't.

random thoughts and questions i've had lately:

1. we're going on an alaskan cruise in august, i'm excited.  you obviously know i loathe flying so i'm not looking forward to the getting to seattle and back part of the trip, but alaskan cruise has been on my to do list for awhile.  in fact, i searched the blog archives and realized i've been talking about it since at least 2013.  but i know it's longer than that because my law school friend did that for his honeymoon right after our graduation in 2010 and it looked so cool.  have you been on one or been to alaska?  102 days until cruise time and i'm already planning itineraries and making a packing list.

2. i always try to avoid sad stories about pets, but i ended up reading one and the dog died because it got poisoned by the neighbors' kids.  and people call for punishment but straight up - if you mess with my dog, i will murder you and whoever raised you.  whatever age you are, if you harm my animals, i will kill you.  period.  i will go to jail for life or accept the death penalty, no regrets.  that's how much i love my dog.  neighbors, consider yourselves warned.  but our neighbors also have dogs, a pit mix and a little schnauzer-y something, so they're cool.

3. neighbors, you say?  yes, i did say neighbors because... they accepted our offer on a house.  which has also taken up most of my time lately.  i don't want to be posting my address all over the internet, that's crazy.  and obviously i know enough not to post photos from the listing, because google image search, duh.  but a ton of you are close friends, like we send each other christmas cards of our dogs and you'd have my address anyway, so if you're a total home interior stalker, leave me a comment that you want to see and when i e-mail you back i'll tell you the address so you can look it up.  anyway, we're super excited, inspection went well, now it's just getting to the closing date that's stopping us from moving in, so i felt like it's an ok time to mention it on the blog.  any earlier would have been a jinx, of course.

yep, i just snuck that exciting news in there at the end.  see who's reading without a click-baity WE BOUGHT A HOUSE title.  happy whatever day of the week it actually is.
