Just dropping in for a quickie. This weekend feels like it has flown by, even though we didn't do all that much.
Friday we went to Cozy Cat again to pick up some catnip to make the toys with. The director was actually there this time to give it to me. And by "it", I mean a 5 gallon bucket of nip.
I was expecting like a freezer Ziploc bag full or something. Not a 5 gallon bucket. She commented that it's $85 worth of nip. It made me feel good that after having only been volunteering with Cozy Cat for a month, she trusted me with $85 worth of nip to make toys with. It's nice when someone has some faith in you.
Yesterday we ran a couple of errands, nothing much. We did eat fast food, I'm sorry to say. Although not as much as I generally eat, so it was better than it could have been I guess. After the errands we came home and did some cleaning, which was our plan for the weekend. Cleaning. It's starting to get hot, and it never fails that our AC goes out as soon as it's miserably hot outside. We figured we'd get the house good and clean while the AC is working so we can call maintenance any time we need to if it does go out. After we cleaned I worked on some nip toys, and we watched a couple of movies.
Then came the worst part of the weekend. We had finished our two movies, and I was laying on the couch reading and dh was on his computer playing around. We heard a noise, which I thought was a scream, but he said he thought it was a whistle. We sat here quietly listening and heard lots of thumping and banging upstairs, then the noise came again, and that time we were sure it was a scream. So then we're like... crap, do we call 911? So we sit here staring at each other for a minute, listening to the thumping and banging, and then we heard one really loud thump. At that point we were like... yeah, time for 911. So I called, explained the situation, and gave our address. Then I got the good news... officers had already just arrived on scene. I was so relieved, cause I'm pretty sure something bad was going on up there. There was noise for a couple hours, then everything quieted down and we haven't heard a peep today. Dh said he went upstairs late last night to see if there was police tape or anything, and there wasn't, but he said the police had obviously kicked in the door. We figure now that was probably the last big noise we heard before we called 911. We will probably never know what happened up there. We don't know any of our neighbors and no one in this building is very friendly. But I do know that every time I hear a noise up there from now on, I'm going to wonder if I should call 911. Ugh.
Anyway, after that drama passed I slept surprisingly well. I woke up about noon today and commenced with calling my mom and grandmother to wish them a happy Mother's Day. Then I woke dh up and we went and ate fast food again. Wtf? I settled for just a single cheeseburger, though. I tried to show SOME restraint. Then it was off to the library to return some films, and then home. We still had more cleaning to do, so we finished that up. Then I worked on more nip toys. I have 8 ready to take to Cozy Cat tomorrow night.
My week is not going to start off well tomorrow though. I have an appointment with an oral surgeon to go to. That's gonna suck. Partly because I don't want to have oral surgery and partly because it's going to cost a billion dollars. But such is life I guess. Then after the consultation with the surgeon I'll come home and cook some dinner. Then it will be off to Cozy Cat to volunteer tomorrow evening.
Man, I really can't believe it's after 9 pm on Sunday evening. Wasn't it just Friday a couple hours ago? Sure feels like it! Anyway, I hope everyone had a lovely, Springy weekend!
Now it's time for some reading and relaxing while dh naps. Have a good night all!
