10 Things that Made Me Happy this Week 41


10 Things that Made Me Happy this Week

[Note: This is NOT in order of importance.]

1  Charlie’s new bag that we can carry him around in without having to worry about his legs for the time being.  🙂  Jeff picked me up from the train on Friday night after work, with Charlie in a bag and it was oh-so-cute!

2  Last weekend was a weekend of pure indulgence and just relaxing.  I haven’t had a weekend like that in a long, long time.

3  Orange Is The New Black.  Yeah, season 3 is long since done.  When is 4 coming out? lol

4  Visiting the Dog Park with Baxter.  Little man still has to get out, even if Charlie can’t romp around like he used to.

5  Jeff’s AMAZING ribs and pulled pork.  AH-MAZING!

6  Pole dancing on Monday night – yet another fun night.  Christ, my calves, my ribs, my abs AND hands all hurt!

7  Making plans for our wedding anniversary (28th) that’s coming up next weekend.

8  Seeing my Momma this week.  I just love her to pieces!

9  Good News: Surgery is officially scheduled pursuant to the pre-op yesterday!  I just want to get this over with already and get on the road to recovery.

10  Turning on our A/c units for the first time in 2015.  I $hit you not, angels were singing.

11.  And one more for good measure – To everyone that has written to me this week, thank you for being there.  I’m not always like this, I promise.  You guys have been far more supportive than anyone else has been and I really appreciate it.  *big hugs*

I will be pet sitting this weekend so I will be back on Monday with my usual pet sitting weekend recap!

What made YOU happy this week?

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!!

  • I love Charlie’s carry bag.

    Sorry you had a rough week. May you be soothed by the lovely pets this weekend.

    My BFF has the same anniversary.

  • Have been thinking a lot about you this week and hope all is well with you, momma. Sending so much love and good wishes for you. Hope you have a relaxing weekend and that the dogs are cathartic for you to hang around with (I find they always are for me).

    And how is Charlie doing? He looks so cute in his little bag 🙂

    Eeeeep, I haven’t finished watching this season of OITNB yet…. but I like what I’m seeing so far (but have heard mixed reviews… what do you think? I’m only about 3 or 4 episodes in, so no spoilers!) 🙂 XOXO

  • Good luck on all the preps for Charlie’s operation, and wow, you’ve been married for 28 years? You look too young to be married 28 years!

  • Thank you my friend. It’ll be a relaxing weekend, even though I’m working. And I get to soak up as much Charlie as I possibly can before his surgery Monday.
    Nice. 🙂 Can’t believe we’ve been married for 7 years already.
    Have a wonderful weekend my friend and thanks for everything this week. xo

  • Perhaps I should have said (ON the 28th). 🙂

    Thanks a bunch. I’ll be posting updates next week. I got briefed on the pre-op consult with the surgeon and what they’re doing is pretty remarkable. They’re using 40 lb fishing line to secure everything into place!!
    Have a great weekend Lisa!

  • Thanks love… totally appreciate all the lovely thoughts and well wishes. xox The weekend will be nice, despite working and I’m going to lap up every possible second with Charlie, as he’ll be going to my mom’s late Sunday night and then taken in for surgery at 10:30 am Monday.

    Charlie’s doing fine. You’d never know he’s hurt. I feel like he’s trying to squeeze in as much silliness as possible this week, he’s just full of beans! He’s doing great though. 🙂 Now, next week, try asking me that. LOL. I’ll post updates on him once he’s out of surgery.
    OITNB was good. A bit slow the first couple of episodes but good. I actually want to watch the last episode again because I don’t remember what happened and I think I was in the kitchen or something. Finish that up this weekend if you can. 🙂

  • amethystmoon

    This is a great post idea! It is so important to remember all the happy things so the negative don’t take over. I, too, finished OITNB and am impatiently waiting for season 4. I had an awesome weekend and went to the Rolling Stones concert in Orlando! It was AWESOME!!

  • Sue Oxley

    Does Charlie like his new bag? My daughters yorkshire terrier fits in one perfectly for travel but our Brinkley is a little too big at 21 lbs and has a very long body. Happy wedding anniversary, hope you managed to plan something special.

  • Ashleigh

    I’m with ya on the OITNB… when is season 4 lol I love that show and it makes me happy, too!!

  • Macy Browning Lane

    Great list! Love #8.

    Happy this week? LOSING WEIGHT!! I finally had my come to Jesus talk with myself and made some changes in the things I was putting into my body. My body is already thanking me. Also happy that it’s Friday and the hubster will have some days to relax and play with us. I’m happy that I am alive and healthy and the ones I love are too.

  • Right?! That’s why I do this weekly post. In a world full of crap and life getting in the way sometimes, it’s important to express gratitude.

    The Stones concert must’ve been amazing, I had no idea those old farts were still touring! First time seeing them??

  • He looks happy as a clam in the bag. I think it reminds him of when he lays in these huge blue ikea bags that I fill with freshly dried, warm laundry. He likes to crawl into tight cozy spaces so this is right up his alley. Although we’re not taking using it daily, it’s an option. Might take him out for a walk tonight with his brother… 🙂 I love the idea of having your small dog in a carry bag, IF it works, but most dogs are too heavy or it would end up hurting your arm/back. Love when people carry along their little pals.

    Thank you so much! I’ve planned nothing – this is all my husband. 🙂

    Have a great weekend Sue! xo

  • I watch a lot of marathon TV and then inevitably when it’s over, I’m left with nothing to watch and on just eager for the months to roll by so another season comes out. 🙂

  • Those are all wonderful things to be happy/grateful for abd to celebrate. Good for you Hun 🙂
    Have a fabulous weekend my friend!

  • Bethany Magnie

    Haha is that Baxter!? Very cute. We had pulled pork this week too, I am not ashamed to say I pigged out… Pun pun pun!

  • Baxter is the one on the wooden bench. He’s entitled to sit up there you know lol. You can usually tell who is who by the funny feet Baxter has, as well as the bouffant was, big fluffy head. 🙂
    I had pulled pork on Sunday I think it was and boy was it ever good! 🙂

  • Charlotte Marie Whitehead

    Cute dog! I LOVE Orange is the new Black!! What made me happy this week was cleaning and organizing and writing.

  • Heather Serra

    My mom is obsessed with Orange Is The New Black! It didn’t appeal to me when it first came out, but there seems to be so much hype around it. I should give it a try…so afraid I’ll get sucked in! Sounds like you’ve had a pretty good week. Best wishes for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery!

  • You know what, I wasn’t on board at first either. I don’t think I watched season 1 until season 2 was online and Jeff had already watched it, but I gave it a chance since the hype about it was crazy.

    Thank you so much love!! I hope the recovery goes smooth and QUICK!! 🙂

    Have a great weekend! Xo

  • Thanks Hun! Cleaning, organizing and purging make me a happy woman too! I have to check out your blog later!

  • amethystmoon

    They were actually the first band I ever saw without parents, but that was 25 years ago! But they were just as good and had crazy energy!

  • Aliyyah

    Love #6 and congrats on #7!! Great quote by the way!

  • I have not watched a single episode of OITNB, but I am curious to see what all the hype is about.

  • That’s awesome!! 🙂

  • Karissa Ancell

    Great list of happy things. My husband and I are almost done with season 3 of OITNB is job gets in the way of us watching it.

  • Thanks Aliyyah 🙂

  • Watch a few at a time so you get a reality or feel of what it’s about. 🙂

  • We watched it all last weekend – first weekend we didn’t have anything going on so we figured just marathon it.

  • leah herring

    I’ve heard so much about OITNB, I wish I had more time to watch TV!

  • claire

    I loved OITNB and yeah want the next series. 28 yrs! I bet your little man loves his wee bag he looks comfy, but hopefully he will get sorted soon 🙂

  • Yeah he’ll be fine, just gotta get past the surgery. Not 28 years, the 28th of June lol

  • claire

    Ha! I wasnt thinking properly, you would have got married when you were about 10 lol!! Xx

  • No if we were married 28 years, I would’ve gotten married when I was 3. I’m only 31 lol!!

  • I know this must be incredibly difficult… But Charlie has such a wonderful support system and people around him who love him so much–plus it sounds like he’s full of piss and vinegar, which is always helpful for a full recovery 🙂

    I hope to! I’m still at my parent’s house but leaving sometime today (when I can figure out a ride situation. May spend the afternoon tomorrow in New Hope, PA for Father’s Day with Bryan’s family (though part of me wants to soak up the apartment and Buster since I’ve missed him all week, LOL!) XOXO

  • Awww, all such wonderful news. #2 sound especially nice!

  • It was a glorious weekend 🙂

  • You’re all right on on all accounts. So much support, and that’s making all the difference. And yes he’s so full of piss and vinegar lol

    Sounds like you’ve got a lovely little weekend planned ahead. Hopefully you have some nice weather too!

    Aww, give Buster lots of snuggles xoxox

  • claire
