it's been a busy week. busy in a most excellent way, not in a this-is-drudgery way. because, of course, silas has been home.
it has been a week of indulgence. you see, for some reason, when silas and i hang out, we usually end up doing two things:
1) spending a lot of money
2) eating a lot (LOT) of food
whenever we have a day together, we do all the things we've (I've) been meaning to do, like buy a new vacuum or go to costco or get lamps. money just flies out of our bank account.
plus, we "celebrate" by consuming mass quantities of delicious food.
so when we have a whole week together...you can imagine.
no less than 4 pizzas (one of which was a huge bbq chicken deep dish. THE BEST) and 3 (4??) boxes of donut holes were consumed, along with unnumbered amounts of waffles, cheese, bread, salami, crackers, chips, chocolate-covered raisins, cookie dough, tasty ice cream (both ben & jerrys and baskin robbins, thank you), frosties (vanilla all the way!), quiznos sandwiches....and a host of other things i'm not going to embarrass myself by mentioning.
oh yeah, pizookies. with b & j's "half-baked" ice cream on top. we made some of those.
i will embarrass myself by mentioning that i've spent a great deal of time in yoga pants and suuuuuuper stretchy pajama-like jeans and that right now i am wearing a lovely loose-fitting dress that may or may not make me look a leeetle bit pregnant.
baggy stretchy clothes for the win.
my 'mom'iform. does anyone else spend all/most of the day in leggings or yoga pants? or does everyone else actually get dressed even when they're not leaving the house....
and yes, i took this professional-looking picture myself. try not to be too impressed.
it's been a good week, though. we got to go out, sleep in, run some errands, go visit some gyms (NO I DIDN'T JOIN ONE YET STOP PRESSURING ME), etc. we spent a lovely day in sedona, hiking and driving and playing in the snow.
we adopted a dog!
he appears to be mostly australian cattle dog, and so far he's quite the sweetheart. reminds me a lot of my old dog, nala, actually. except less neurotic.
after much debate, i believe we have decided on the name Sirius. partly because he looks like a constellation and Sirius is a prominent star in Canis Major. partly because he's quite serious. and partly because i would not have lived a full life if i didn't name something after a harry potter character.
"and silas, sirius black even turned into a dog! a black dog named padfoot! isn't it so perfect?!"
tesla thinks his crate is pretty nifty.
sirius' crate, i mean. we don't crate our babies 'round here.
