Is It Friday Yet?
Ya, right, it’s just Monday and I’m already desperate for the next weekend. And it’s going to be an insane week.
First up, work is going to kick my butt this week. I’m away Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. With a possibility of Wednesday as well. This is clearly payback for the fact that I have not been on the road with work for 3 solid weeks. My work travel will undoubtedly make this week more challenging for the entire MPB family, but thankfully Mr. MPB is expecting to have a normal week so he can pick up my slack.
Tuesday, deck construction starts. We initially planned to do our entire backyard landscaping this year, but decided to only do the deck. Reason being, Devil Dog (aka Doodle MPB) – she’s a bit of digger and I have no desire to pay someone to make our backyard beautiful just for her to dig it. So, this summer, we will only be doing the deck replacement. I’m so excited to have a new, safe deck. But, I am absolutely dreading the construction of the deck. For about the next 10-14 days Little MPB will not be able to play in the backyard due to construction materials (i.e. nails on the ground). And, we will not be able to just let Doodle MPB out for unsupervised pee breaks and play times.
Doodle MPB is going to be spayed on Wednesday. Multiple people have told me puppies tend to slow down a bit after being spayed – I have no idea if that actually happen. I’m hoping it’s true. Or, is this a true old wives tale? I guess I’ll find out soon. She’s also having her lower baby canines removed. And, here’s to hoping we can get her adult ones to grow into the right spot, because I cannot stomach the idea of a 5-10K dog dental bill.
Looking ahead at this week, I just know this is going to be one of those weeks where I feel like I’m failing at everything as I just try to hold all these balls in the air. Life of a working mom is hard sometimes. And this week is going to be a shining example of just how hard it can be. So, here’s to hoping we all survive without too much arguing.
