We meet again. I’ll be honest, writing these weekly wrap ups feels very deja vu when there’s so little changing from week to week, but I am trying to keep as much consistency in my work and life as I can. Cabin fever has absolutely hit over here, but we can always find some things to chat about, right?
I shared Wednesday that I finally painted the laundry room. I knew I wanted to paint it when we moved in, but we painted and touch-up painted so much that I gave myself a break. I called the paint store and they were mixing colors, taking payment over the phone and would deliver your paint curbside. So I painted the room Benjamin Moore White Dove, got my magic eraser after all of the cabinets and built-in desk and plan on buying a cork board and doing this DIY. It feels so fresh and clean in there now. I’m so proud! I also want to paint our bedroom, but it’s obviously a bigger space and I’m going to be honest… my back hurts. So I bought the paint for it, but I’m giving myself a breather.
Bailey’s 13th birthday is actually this Sunday. I can’t believe I have a teenager, ha! Although in big dog years she’s around 96 years old. God bless her. She has lived in Oxford, Mississippi + Jackson, Mississippi + Santa Ana, California + Orange, California + San Francisco, California and now Athens, Georgia. It’s not always easy moving and driving all over the country with an 80+ lb dog (perhaps a large dog wasn’t Christian’s wisest choice), but she sure has had a lot of adventures. Lakes, beaches, dog parks, vacations, cross country drives and now that she finally has the big backyard I’ve always wanted for her, she just wants to sleep! I usually bake her this doggie cake, but this year Christian is grilling her a steak. I think she’ll love it.
Do you do anything special for your senior pets? Once Lula passed away, it really made me look at Bailey differently. As much as I wish pets could live as long as humans, we don’t have forever. So I try to sneak her some extra treats!
