and to top it off!

Then I was working late last night at the office and had to go to the bathroom. Got in there. And... NO TOILET PAPER!

And no one around to ask/yell at to get me some. And no extra rolls anywhere in sight. So I had to use the paper towels. I messaged the girls this morning and told them if the toilet stopped up, I had no idea who did it. I'm at the PA Conference the rest of the week. Wouldn't bother me if the toilet over-flowed. I'm not around.

I hear they had a good laugh. I'm sure that's what they do all day while I'm gone!

Oh well, at least there was paper towels.

what a week!

Life has been a little crazy. Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. It's not that there isn't anything to post about. I just haven't had the time.

Work is going much better. We are trying a new schedule and the physician and I are 'tag teaming' it. We saw 42 patients on Tuesday!! PTL!! I think we've finally figured it out. There were some problems along the way, but our staff has worked really hard to make it work. Even Administration has noticed we got busier and asked us what we were doing. (After telling us it couldn't be done :) I'll keep you posted!!

Last Saturday, well, it was. The game was nothing to mention, but the company was great! Ed and Sus came over. Laura and JT were in town for a baby shower so they got to come over. And Kylie and Callion the Stallion came over as well. (Don't you like my nickname for him? :) We had a great time watching Cal instead of our Sooners.
Bentley and Bella were really interested in Cal. They were so good with him--he grabbed their ears and mouth and they didn't do anything! I was a little scared because neither of them have been around kids that much. I'm so proud!

Then on Wednesday, Kylie and I attempted to highlight our hair. Well, let's just say she had to go have it fixed the next day. Kylie was not as adventerous as me--I think she pulled 10 hairs through the cap. Then she kept telling me, "Oh it's much lighter." What a crock! :) We had fun and laughed alot. But decided we needed to look into cosmetology classes at TCC. Kevin even got into it! Cal's pants got a little bleached, sorry the pic didn't' turn out well.

And yesterday my birthday present from Ed and Sus was delivered!! An oak tree for my backyard. When I moved in 18 months ago, the front yard was landscaped nicely. The backyard had sod. A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I should go look for trees since fall is a great time to plant. But then Ed and Sus offered to buy me a tree for my birthday. I know, I'm a dork and getting old. Only dorks and old single ladies get excited about getting a tree for their birthday. I got home from work yesterday and guess who decided the mulch needed to be all over the yard and the dirt distributed father around the tree? Yup, Bentley. He has now lost his outside recess privileges. Laura told me about some spray she used on her plants to keep animals from digging. If anyone else has any ideas, I'm all ears.

And the best quote from the week: "I have diabetes of my bunghole." How one lady described her hemorrhoids. I don't know what she meant either but I couldn't keep a straight face . . . .

Last week I got to catch up with a friend from high school at the OU game. Lauren Duke. We had a great time catching up and reminising about B'ville in the day. There are those friends that no matter how long it's been, you start back up where you left off. Sure love you friend!

(My shirt has political stickers on it--just so you don't think I wore a Cole/Inhoff shirt to the game)

dog costumes

I admit, dressing up dogs is weird. But I only do it on the approved holiday. That's Halloween.

Bentley has a bumblebee costume, it's a couple years old but when he only wears it for an hour or less every year it doesn't wear out. Bella was a ballerina last year but outgrew it. So this year she needed a new costume. She's going to be a lady bug. I tried on her costume. She seemed to enjoy it, probably because she knows that if there is anything she doesn't like to do (like bathing or getting brushed) she gets a treat afterwards. I laughed so hard when I got their costumes on I had to show the neighbors. (It's ok--they know I'm weird)

I let Bentley and Bella outside and my neighbor screamed and ran away, "What is that???" I told her it was ok and only Bella in her Halloween costume. She came back and sat with me on my driveway and chatted and laughed. She pet Bella for half and hour.

I just had to share the pictures. And don't worry, you probably won't see any more pictures of my dogs dressed up for another year!

a game

What is this?
a. Hair from Sarah's shower drain
b. Bentley's Halloween costume
c. What was left after shampooing the carpet,
after vacuuming with a Dyson

And the answer is c. (Please don't barf or think less of me. I am a clean person, I promise!)

I was totally disgusted but had to share. And the sad part, it was only from 1.5 rooms!! And I had vacuumed with the Dyson and dumped the hair/dirt twice before I shampooed.

I used to think I was a clean freak. Guess that's what happens when you have two dogs.
