back to reality (kind of)

christmas came and went like one night stand, and now it's back to reality for most of us.  i'm not quite back in reality yet, though because I.HAVE.THIS.WHOLE.WEEK.OFF!! :) i know, it's okay to be a little jealous.  but don't worry, next monday morning's going to be a rude awakening for me and i'm already dreading it... anyways, enough of that.  i hope everyone had the merriest of christmases and enjoyed their time with friends and family.  i definitely did, and i'm extending my little vacay through this week and getting stuff done that i never have time to do while i'm working and taking care of my fur baby - i.e. lots of kickass classes at the gym with some of houston's hottest housewives (i keep thinking, if i could just be a housewife for the rest of my life, i would have the best damn body!), shopping and errands (even though my bank account hates me right now), meeting up with old friends, lots of walks and play time with bailey boo, laying around watching terrible tv, reading some new books i got for christmas, getting my nails and hair did, etc.  you get the idea.  it's going to be a great week, i can tell.

my little gremlin, bailey, on the other hand, isn't so stoked about this week.  she thinks it's so great that her mommy's home and playing with her all day, but little does she know, she's having surgery tomorrow morning.  you know "down there" kind of surgery - the kind of surgery that will prevent her from having other little gremlin babies.  i have to be honest with you guys, i know dogs are neutered/spayed everyday and vets know what they're doing, but i am kind of freaking out.  not only are they cutting her open and she's going to get stitches on her cute little tummy, but she has to stay over night all alone in a strange place!!!  :(  i'm really having anxiety about the whole thing and kind of nervous and worried.  i know she's going to be fine, but it still worries me.  i'm going to have to be a brave mommy tomorrow.  i can't imgaine what a wreck i'll be when i have kids!! 

i'll let you know how it goes tomorrow, and in the meantime i'll leave you with this little photo of my little brother, my little gremlin, and me with a cute boston terrier ornament from christmas morning:


{we're still working on how to take pictures with her.  she doesn't quite get it yet.}

good luck to little bailey- it will be fine, but you can't help worrying when you are a mommy.

my dog refuses to have his picture taken. i think he thinks we are stealing his soul or something.

What a cute picture! And seriously, I can't believe how fast Christmas went!

My mom's dogs name is Bailey too!

I still don't think my cat has forgiven me for having his balls removed. Oh well.

Hope it all goes well tomorrow!

Leesie said...

I'm off work all week too and I'm not looking forward to next Monday already. You'll just have to explain that it's for her own good about the surgery, she'll understand eventually :)

Cee said...

First of all...I am super jealous of your week off!

Second, I know how you feel about Bailey...I was the same way when Hanna got fixed in September. She had to stay overnight too and I was so worried, but everything was fine! It actually got annoying after a few because she would not stay calm!

my name is lauren. said...

your week sounds like it will be awesome and i am totally jealous.

also...bailey will be ok...if not a little drugged out. but you're a good mommy to be concerned :).

oh...and p.s. thanks for becoming one of my newest blog followers and leaving me a sweet comment. can't wait to read more of your blog too!

Poor bailey but just think...its permanent birth control and that is a good thing. Wish this was mandatory for some humans...

Anyway, good luck! Hope its an easy recovery.

Cathy said...

Bailey might take a better picture if your bro wasn't choking her.

I love getting my hair did, mainly because I get a scalp massage. JOY!

Meredith! Just discovered your blog via Facebook! Super exciting. I have one too but it's not near as "professional," haha. This is Stacy Zane, FYI. Anyhoo...when my little baby nugget head had to go in for her surgery (and keep in mind she got spayed, microchipped, AND had an umbilical hernia repaired), I begged the vet to let me take her home that same day. Most likely, no one is there to care for the little doggies in the middle of the night! Not to scare you, but if she's doing well enough, they should let you take her home at the end of the day. Just ask. My baby was super funny that day though - very drugged out! She fell asleep and rolled off the couch, only to awake when she hit the floor. Poor thing. But funny, haha. They recover so quickly though, the next day, she was running around! So no worries!

Shandal said...
