Weekend Updates – Vet Visits, House Sitting and More

Happy Monday, friends! Welcome to another edition of Weekend Update!

Friday
Friday after work, I hit up CrossFit, which was both wonderful and hard, as always. This was my first time going to class twice in one week in a while, and I was FEELING it.

After class I headed home to quickly pack my overnight bag for house sitting, and then zipped the 10 minutes down the road. I was greeted by two friendly puppers, and proceeded to spend the rest of the evening ensconced on a comfy couch, enjoying puppy snuggles and cable TV.

Saturday
First thing in the morning, we took our kitties to their annual vet visits. Creemee has a little skin irritation on her neck that we got some ointment for, and otherwise they are in good health. Hooray!

After dropping the kitties off at home, we headed out to look at a couple of houses, and, well, we kind of fell in love with one. So much so that we immediately scheduled a second viewing for Sunday so that we could bring my in-laws for a more critical once-over.

In the afternoon, Ben headed off to play disc golf with some friends while I headed back to the house and took the pups for a walk, threw in some laundry, and watched Halloween movies.

When Ben got home, we headed over to our friends David and Alex’s house for a low-key Halloween party. We had some drinks and some snacks, and were home in bed before midnight.

Sunday
We had a bit of a lie-in Sunday morning, and after breakfast headed out to our second viewing of the house we liked. My in-laws both gave double thumbs up, and we coordinated a meeting with our Realtor for today to put together an offer package. Eek!

We spent the rest of the afternoon at our buddy Pete’s house watching football, then headed back to our house-sitting gig for supper and an early bedtime. Unfortunately, northern VT was smacked with a crazy strong wind storm, and I had a VERY hard time sleeping with the wind howling around the house.

The power went out overnight, which meant no shower, no coffee, and no breakfast. AND there were major road closures due to downed trees and power lines, so I was over an hour late to work this morning. Happy Monday!

Did you experience the wind storm in your area?

    We ended up a bit better – we got heavy rains off and on for >24 hours and strong winds, but not too much down.

    Good luck with the house! It really is exhilarating, exhausting, energizing and terrifying all at once!

      I’m having a REALLY hard time focusing on work today. I’m also VERY grateful that my realtor’s office is in the same building as my office, so I can sprint down there for our meeting this afternoon!
