Today my boyfriend turned 30… on the 30th. Kind of a big deal, and a great coincidental date too. More exciting things from today: Calli (my older cat) went to the vet, and I finally finally finally got my new glasses! Yay!
I was going to try and organize this post, but I think chronological order is the best way to go…
Calli is allergic to plastic, and a good traveler, so she wears a harness and leash when she leaves the house instead of going in a carrier (I know there are fabric carriers out there, I just don't have one). Here is Calli getting ready to leave the house:
As I was getting dressed today, I noticed there is a giant bruise on my thigh, I have no idea where it came from, nothing in my house is at that height on my leg and I do not remember running in to anything. It is a mystery.
It was way too foggy for me to take any pictures on the way to the vet's office in Athens, it's a shame because I changed clothes several times today (due to the cat hair) and totally missed this outfit, lol.
|Yay! My left eye's not blurry anymore. My right eye still is, but it's a bit better.|
Once I made it to the eye doctor's office for my appointment, I got my new glasses before my appointment because they were running behind.
While I was waiting at the eye doctor's office, I played a round of What's the Phrase? and won, and it was the best phrase I've seen on there.
After my appointment, I finally made it to my boyfriend's house.
Here is a picture of his birthday present, it is tied together since I knew I was traveling with Calli and didn't want to be picking up his presents from my floorboard.
Here is a picture of him opening his presents… with a pocketknife:
After he opened his presents, we went and played with his dog Lola, who is still very much a puppy. I brought her a new toy, and the two of them played with it for a while before we went out to lunch. Here's a picture:
Lola was madly in love with her toy. She even took it in to her crate with her, and she never ever takes toys in with her, they have to be given to her.
After playing with Lola, I went and picked up Calli from the vet's office. The vet did all sorts of blood work on her since she is getting up there in age and she has lost a couple of pounds (which is a really big deal with you weigh less than 10 lbs.). Everything came back totally 100% normal, he even told me that she's much more healthy than most house cats who usually have something outside of normal parameters due to their diets and lack of exercise (just like humans). All of this was a huge relief for me.
Here she is when we got in the car:
Here's a video of her talking on the way home. It's not that great since I was focusing more on driving than I was on taking the video.
Once we got home, my boyfriend met us there and walked up to my car, Calli growled at him when he started walking up and then she got really excited when she recognized him. It was totally cute, she hopped out of the car and just let him walk her on the leash.
Here is the exterior of Turner Field....
The Braves won, the Nationals lost, and it was really great.
I ate way more junk food than I should have, including:
2. Frozen lemonade
3. Some of Kendall's french fries
4. Cotton Candy
5. Dippin' Dots Ice Cream - bought when I couldn't find funnel cake, but then...
6. Funnel Cake (which we took about two bites of and threw away).
