How was your weekend? Mine was good. I’m back at home and if I didn’t mention it before, my Mom is also here, yay! We’ve been having a really good time hanging out in Venice, boating, fishing, and maybe a little shopping…okay a lot. I can’t lie, you know me better than that.
We also have another guest in the way of my Mom’s dog, Shakespeare. Shakespeare is my fur brother my Mom’s dog. He’s a Pomeranian and also a male. So, we now have 3 male dogs in the house. Shakespeare and Hank have NOT been neutered and they’re acting like
typical men testosterone induced, crazy freaks! Shakespeare marks and then Hank marks, or Hank marks and then Shakespeare marks and it’s driving me insane.
All the years of potty training success go right out the window as soon as another un-neutered male comes to town and then it’s a pissing contest, literally. If you want to save Hanks balls, please give me advice on how to keep un-neutered male dogs from pissing on carpets, otherwise, I’m pretty close to calling the ball chopper vet.
On a side note, I googled ‘dog shaming dog pees on floor’ and over half of the pictures on the first page are dachshunds, I’m screwed.
Over the weekend, Mom and I went to a few garage sales. At one of them there was a cute basket with three compartments to put pots or plants in, or whatever. It had ceramic tiles on the front of each compartment and I really lliked it. Unfortunately, it didn’t have a price, so I asked the lady what she wanted for it and she said ‘make me an offer’. My Mom said, how about a dollar? I swear to you this lady started horse laughing. And then she said, I’m sorry but a dollar, really? I need at least five dollars, that was a very expensive basket and it’s special. I can’t believe this bitch just bargain shamed me at a flippin garage sale!
I’ve never seen a special basket before but if I’m paying five dollars for a used, banged up garage sale basket it better talk to me or do some tricks! My Mom and I politely said thank you but no thank you and then headed toward the car. My Mom then whispers to me that she had a similar basket that she had brought down to sell in my garage sale next week, and then she went to the trunk of her car and produced said basket, only hers was cuter, and new! I swear! My Mom is magical….
While we were in Venice, MacGyver and I decided to go out on the boat with Mom and the 3 dogs. We did a little fishing and let the dogs swim a little. It was a beautiful day and even though the water was a little chilly, I knew it would feel great on my hips so I figured what the hell, I’ll jump in with the dogs.
Now, if you follow me on instagram, you probably saw this picture already so you may have figured it out but just in case you aren’t one of the cool kids, here’s what happened.
I was jumping around in the water because it was only knee to thigh deep; and I took all three dogs in and paddled around with them. I threw a water plastic water bottle out for Boomer to retrieve and we were hopping up out of the water and jumping towards the water bottle. After a few feet I came down on my right foot and instantly felt searing pain. I knew I had hurt my foot but I didn’t realize it was cut until I got out of the boat. Someone had thrown a broken beer bottle in the water and I guess it was my lucky day, because I found it.
MacGyver would say it’s merely a scrape and Mom would say it’s bad but didn’t warrant any trips to the emergency room. However, if you ask me, I probably could use about 15 stitches, narrowly missed an artery, and I’ll be lucky if we don’t have to amputate the lower half of my leg.
It’s not pretty and it is quite painful to step on so I definitely didn’t run anymore over the weekend. I also dropped a landscape timber on it Saturday and then Mom accidentally stepped on it Sunday so it’s probably broken now too.
The good news is, I have a new survival tip for you:
1 Paper towel + 2 feet of electrical tape = Redneck Bandaid
So that was the gist of my little vacation, and here’s to a great week. I hope I can run some and I hope you can too!
What did you do this weekend?
Did you run?
What are your workout plans for the week?
