5 Things Friday

5 Things Friday

1. The puppy is high maintenance for the next two week. She got herself an ear infection, and also apparently dogs get seasonal allergies just like humans do. So we have an ear cream, a special shampoo, prescription pills and Benedryl. And most of those have to be attended to twice a day. Yeah. Fun times over here. Sienna is not loving it. I keep telling her she’ll love it after her ear and itchies are all better. She remains unconvinced.

2. She is not the only one who has had an un-fun doctor appointment this week. I had my annual lady check-up this week, and the doctor uttered the words no one ever wants to hear: “I feel something weird.” Cue more people poking at me and having to wait for an ultrasound to see just what that something was. Scariest 2 hours in my recent history. Luckily it’s nothing bad, just a harmless cyst that has decided to hang out for awhile. But this was the same day as all of the puppy news, so after that I was Done. I bought wine, cake, and salty snacks, and camped out on the couch with Netflix the rest of the day.

3. We’re making crepes tomorrow, and I’m a little annoyed that the boy is better at using our crepe pan than I am, seeing as it’s my family that has a crepe tradition. I may need to get in some covert practice.

4. This week has been mostly rain and clouds, and while we needed the rain, I’m over it. Give me back my sun. Clouds make me tired all day.

5. We will be spending the weekend before my birthday next month in San Antonio, and I’m looking for suggestions for things to do. Any ideas?

How was your week? Any plans for the weekend?


  1. Aw, poor Sienna! Yeah, our kitties also get allergies, and Wedge had a gland problem recently so we had to give him liquid medication twice daily. He hated that, but he’s done now – and feeling better! Hopefully Sienna will feel better as soon as possible!

    Ugh for 2, how frightening! I’m so glad you’re okay!

    I want lots more clouds! We slept in our tent during a storm last night and it was perfect! ~

    1. I like falling asleep to rain/storms, but clouds & rain during the day seem to tank my productivity and energy. I miss my sun. 🙁

      And thanks! I can tell Sienna’s already feeling better, and believe me I was uber relieved about my own situation too.

  2. So sorry to hear about Sienna, hope she starts feeling better and yikes I would have been so afraid too if the dr told me that… Glad it’s not anything serious… I also love the rain but when it’s like a whole week with rain everyday I just get annoyed with it and want sunshine back… Cloudy rainy days make me lazy and all I want to do is take a nap lol


    1. Thanks! Her ear already looks 100x better. And she seems less itchy, which is good.

      I’m the same way with the rain. Last week was basically just me trying not to constantly nap. 🙂

  3. I just want to give you a hug! What a week you’ve had, medically. I’m so glad that everything’s O.K now and that Sienna is on the mend.
