The Weekend Just August 23, 2010

I swear two day weekends are just too too too short. On Sat we attended Growing Up Gifted’s trial class, I’m pretty happy with it, the teachers are nice and they speak well. Rylen also connected with a lil girl there… till she pulled her hair :(.  A few minutes at the play gym and then we headed for lunch. It is a joy to have lunch with her these days since we can give her a lil of something or another from our plates and it keeps her happy.

Dropped her off at home for her nap and we head down to Middle Road to get party supplies, it’s not easy this Minnie Mouse theme, everything is MICKEY! Blah. Had about 15 minutes to lie in bed before she got home from her trip to the park and the madness starts again :).

Sunday, R dragged me to Orchard to help him get pants and he decided that nothing was to his liking and/or everything was too expensive, sigh. We did get her stuff:- her own fork and spoon, crayons, a stuffed unicorn which for some reason I want to name Unagi could be due to this *click* har har heh.

Did manage to get in a nap, oh bliss… till the rag and bone man came *honk honk honk* so annoying and if that doesn’t get to you, Deza stomping around and singing will, sigh. A walk to park with the two mad dogs and the very quiet baby girl and I was soooo tired.

It’s still not over cos I had promised Axl Liver Treats for his birthday, so while cooking dinner I’m blending stinky liver, adding oats and wholemeal and eggs and oil and then kneading the smell mixture into little balls, gag. I really do love my dogs. They (the dogs) then spent the rest of the hour watching the oven and Stomper was left to ‘guard’ the treats and Axl was sent to beg.

Did I mention that Rylen’s 6th tooth is making an appearance so she woke up at 10pm, 2am and 5.30am oh and that I had/have 2 boring meetings to attend…zzzzzzzzzz. 5 hours sleep is just not enough.

Steel took his last breath this evening. He’s been skin and bone this past year having lived way above the lifespan of a Great Dane. While at T’s annual Christmas Deco Party, I insisted on taking a photo with Steel, hugged him and kissed him goodbye, I think deep down inside…. He vomited blood a few days ago, his family was in Perth, he waited for all of them to get home first and died at home, I’m sure feeling more loved than any dog out there.

Say hi to Brandy for us.

Doggy Day Out August 24, 2009

Axl’s 1st Birthday is this Friday and there were plans for a small ‘do’ but frankly in this current state, I’m just too tired. So instead, we woke up early and took them to East Coast and as usual they had a blast. It’s such a shame how gross our beaches are.

Some videos of the madness

Stomper managed to get the coconut to shore then…

My Spoilt Pets July 31, 2009

Just ordered 12 cans of dog food, biscuits and 2 types of snacks for the furbabies. I know they are spoilt and I’ll share their schedule :P.

AM: Vitamin (plus a lil treat from me), Walk, Biscuit, Breakfast (1 scoop dry and wet food mixed)
NN: Short Walk, Lunch (1 scoop of dry food), Treat.
EV: Walk, Dinner at 7pm (2 scoops of dry food and fresh minced beef, pork or salmon, sometimes with brown rice and veg).
NIGHT: Walk, fruits (shared with us) and maybe a biscuit or a treat.

I know they have to wash their feet 4 times a day, after each walk and sometimes they get 5 walks!! ahaha. But it means no pee or poop in the house.

I still don’t know what to do for Axl’s birthday and I know it has to be celebrated early… however, I believe Axl enjoyed himself more during Stomper’s birthday than Stomper did but I have no intent on revisiting the Dog Run, Stomper slamming into my belly every time a dog comes too close is just not funny right now. We need to make some time this weekend to groom both dogs and the weekend after (National Day weekend is just not dog friendly, blah) to bring them to East Coast. Between looking for a place to stay, getting baby stuff sorted and keeping sane, my days sometimes feel wayyyy too short.

And just in case I forget…

Giggs has Lymphoma. We don’t know what to do.. the vet says she’s old and doesn’t recommend treatment but according to websites this cancer is very treatable but… how will we know how much pain she’s in receiving chemo, should she just be made as happy as possible for as long as possible? She’s already 12/13 years old!! I know that the ex is hurting and is looking to me for answers, treat or not to treat… most of me is leaning towards making her comfortable… I mean in human years she’s over 80! When I’m 80, I’d want people to just leave me be.

Stomper turns two today and I’m like REALLY? Then it hits me in less than 2 years, I’ve managed to get a darling puppy; who to me is the best puppy ever! Get married to an amazing man. Get another puppy who is still a work in progress but a gem for sure. AND get knocked up… in less than 2 years!! Whoa! I’ve been busy!

Friday Couldn’t Come Soon Enough! April 17, 2009

Took a short walk with the dogs last night cos I had worked late and R had gone to the gym, we were both soooo tired but I feel I have to personally take them out at least once a day, just have to.  It was worth it. Went to a nearby tiny lil park and Stomper and Axl went crazy with a coconut. I wish I’d brought my camera. Two tired and very thrilled puppies happily walked back home while R and I had grins on our faces… our furry clowns.

I hope I’m not jinxing it but Axl didn’t do anything stupid or nasty last night or this morning! Yay! First time since we’ve gotten back!

This weekend is kinda packed, just the way I like it… pizza with Flo and her new baby, gyne visit tmr, gym and then the Treetop walk on Sunday.

Note 20 April: I jinxed it.

Tomorrow is My Birthday March 31, 2009

Still waiting for Ann’s pictures from my b’day dinner so I took 2 pictures off Pris’s facebook :).

Flower Powder

How Old!?

Things I need to learn…
1. Out source dessert? Cooking everything myself wasn’t easy even when I have a helper cos I’m a control freak. On the menu was Rocket with Parma, Calamari, Mushrooms baked with Chery Tomatoes, Spiced Potatoes, Curried Prawns, Meatballs (pork & chicken) with mint yogurt and Fajitas and then Puff Pastry (kinda) wih Chocolate and Cherries.

2. Hold a knife the right way so avoid sprains?

3. That I’m always grateful for the lovely gifts my friends get me

4. That my husband is always there for me… I wanted to KILL the pastry

5. That I should get my own birthday cake but then it wont have Princess Supastar on it *Sulk*

I am....

I am....

Another Weekend February 16, 2009

The weekend was nice enough, I guess. Was feel a lil out of it but on Sat, I managed to get my lazy ass into gear and got my new phone the Nokia E71 in sexy black. Yes, Nokia is a hard habit to break, bite me. I love it. Then went for a really nice dinner at Esmirada with R (he’s never been before!!), we don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day but I made him wish me anyways. There was a hen night and many broken plates. Fun.

On Sunday, I got my tired and sniffy ass up early in the morning so that Ann and I could get them to the beach. Many scratches (on me) and a very wet … well, me and 3 dogs (Stomper, Chutney and Axl) we headed home at around 11am and the dogs and I were out for the whole afternoon. I woke up and I felt like crap, had a cold and it just got worse after dinner … I hope I’m not falling ill. My throat’s all itchy but at least the cold’s gone. Crosses fingers.
