Dear Weekend of Mine

September 11, 2009

Just when I thought I was going to catch a break, a moment.of.rest at work, all hell breaks loose…again…and the race is on…again.  I really did think I had this case I am working on all summed up, but I think it’s that attitude that jinxed me, and now I’m starting over from square one.  Nothing I did, not my fault, but still…argh!  Let’s just say that, when you step out for 30 minutes to chainsmoke get some fresh air and clear your head, and they STILL call you on your cell phone, and have security trying to track you down, there are issues. 

But that’s ok, because I only have today, and then there’s the weekend.  The beauty of working at the prison is that, after the day is done, there’s not a lot to fret about because, let’s face it, they’re still locked up and it really becomes not-my-problem. 

Dr. Love worked on the rock patio last night.  It’s not completely done, but it will need to be before tonight, save from putting in the polymer sand.  That’s per the Big Dog, who let me know in no uncertain terms that we were going to have hard rains this weekend and all of that work would be for naught if the few stones left did not get laid and sand put between the cracks.  I’m tempted to wake Dr. Love up to inform him of such, but I think I’ll just call him constantly starting at 9:00 a.m. until he wakes up, answers the phone, and gets to hear all about it.

Kizzer Wizzer finally had her bath last night.  I really don’t know how she gets so dirty, other than perhaps rolling in dirt/mud/sand/grass all of the time and jumping in QoB and Big Dog’s pond anytime she gets the chance.  She is looking much better and seems to be less itchy.  Giving her a bath used to be a huge T/D for me, but now Dr. Love helps and she is very calm.  I think it’s because he watches the Dog Whisperer all the time, really do.  She has turned from an all-the-time rebellious dog into a dog that is somewhat manageable, as long as Dr. Love is around.  Really, she even acts better with me, but she’ll do anything (almost anything) for him.

We don’t have any big weekend plans and I would like to keep it that way.  My dad wants me to go by and feed his cat because they will be out of town on Friday and Saturday.  My thinking — it’s a friggin’ cat…put down some extra food and move on!  I still need to call him back and let him know my thought-process on that, however, and hopefully he doesn’t learn of my feelings by reading this during the morning hours today.  Hi, Dad!  🙂

Other than doing some family visiting, namely drinking mojitos and daquiris in the backyard at QoB’s, I plan to not do much this weekend other than rest.  The past few weeks at work have been really stressful and draining, and we have also stayed really busy on the weeknights.  I think it’s time to take a hint from my dear buddy buddy from high school, Adriana @ From KS to PA (a lady who sometimes does not take her own advice) 😉 and sit on my butt a little bit.

DVR-list, here I come!

Working for the Weekend, Loverboy


  1. Ahem…. you bring the mojitos (THAT I LEFT AT YOUR HOUSE) and we’ll cruise on into the weekend.

    Have you ever considered that when you get really itchy, so does the KizWhiz?? LOL In the kitchen-variety psychopop-psychology, we would call that transference. But noooooo, no one would DARE second-guess the Scotch-Taped Princess… Not even the QofB who has hella years more of angst. 😀

    I’m with KSinPA (Hi Adriana)…. time to chill. Have I mentioned we’re talkin’ ’bout taking the camper out for a camp fest this coming week?

    …Kizzer… feel the love, feel the soooooothing ssssshhhhhhh of the dog-whisperer. Can he come teach my pup to quit sh*tting in my kitchen???

    Love ya… MTLI… QofDN a/k/a Madre PS Check out the awesome avatar.

    • I really DID have extra mojitos and daquiris. I will be bringing over what you left at my house, leaving the ones I bought at mine.

      KizWhiz may be itchy because I am itchy, but I never thought about it like that. What I do know is that she has little scabs all over her from scratching so much. Poor doggie!

      And yes, your avatar is amazing. I’d be jealous, but I know it has taken you a long time to find yours, and mine will come. 😀

  2. Bwwaaahaaahaahaaa… I think the “extras” are now at my hacienda. 😀

    Having seen KizWhiz’s “hotspots” I believe she really does have an issue. But we’ve conquered that goal for now, right? 🙂

    What matters right.this.moment is that the Scotch-Taped princess can move to the fore’, and take on not only her own issues, but those of others. Which is very, very much appreciated.

    Sometimes hard to sort it all out… but I think we’re overall doin’ a hella good job. And there’s always manana. (((((Rose))))) Thanks for bein’ with me. Sometimes even the QofB needs a shout-out. And DrLove can just continue to be a rock. Hella good rock.

    I love ya, MTLI……XOXO PS Cats are not only nocturnal, but highly overrated. They can very well take care of themselves, unless someone has decided to project. 😀

  3. I had a dog once that itched all the time. Turns out he had allergies and dry skin. The vet prescribed a steroid cream and it worked wonders. Funny since it’s very similar to the over the counter cream that I use on my youngest who breaks out in heat rashes all the time too. When life gets to be pretty crazy (like mine has recently) I have to schedule in time to relax. If I make plans to watch a movie I don’t try to squeeze something else in it’s place.
