signing off

by Danica on August 22, 2013

Good morning!

I just got home from dropping Zida off at the vet.  She has her “big 6-month appointment” – rabies and spaying surgery.  Poor thing :(  We won’t get to see her until I pick her up tomorrow morning.  It’s too quiet around here without her!

Zida - 6 months

I woke up to a thunderstorm this morning.  Love that…it’s so relaxing!

Unfortunately, it doesn’t exactly bode well for the last run I have scheduled (last one before the race on Saturday)!.  It just quit raining though so I’m hoping that by the time I publish this post and do 30 minutes of yoga, it’s dry enough out there to jog 2 miles.

Anyway, the point of this post is to just let you know that I’m signing off from the blog for the remainder of the week.

I have a full day today (lots of studying, work, etc.), followed by a busy day of cleaning this house tomorrow before my mother-in-law and brother-in-law come to visit (yay!), and then it’s race time early Saturday morning!

Before I go though, you should definitely check out this post from Lindsay: 35 Bloggers I Love

I feel so honored to be a part of this list!  Lindsay’s easily one of my favorite bloggers/”blends.”
And though I already know most of these blogs well, I found a few new-to-me to read!

Alright, I’m out of here!  I’ll check back in to let you know how the race goes on Saturday!
Send some good vibes my way if you think of it!  :)

Have a wonderful rest of the week, friends!

Poor baby, Zida! She’ll be fine but it’s hard to know she’ll be in pain for a day! And I sure hope you don’t spend your whole day cleaning…that’d be a drag! I’m SO looking forward to seeing you!

That’s just it – I hope she’s not scared at all! I kept looking for her today, quickly remembering my buddy wasn’t around :( What’s pathetic is that I got teary when I left the vet. oh vey…how do new moms to actual babies leave their kids, anyway?! ;)

Can’t wait to see you tomorrow!!

Thanks, Becky!
Whenever I got nervous today I reminded myself about the FUN part of racing to try and forget the nervous part :)

The best part is bringing them home when they are all doped up LOL. It was the only time Elmo didn’t have puppy energy and would lay around with me! Good luck this Saturday!!!

haha I’m really excited to see how she’ll be tomorrow morning – doped and sleepy or so excited to be home (like usual) but has to stay still?! It’ll be interesting! :)

Jesse and I were jokingly telling Zida this morning, “Just remember that we love you! Don’t forget that in a couple of hours!” haha

I MISS Thunderstorms SOOO much! It never rains here in LA. I know, you might be thinking, “wow, she’s complaining about constantly sunny weather” – but honestly, it can get quite annoying!!!! LOL
