Week In Review – TV, Zoo, and Almost Burning the House Down

Happy Monday!

Linking up with Meghan from Clean Eats, Fast Feets for another Week in Review!

Oh, what a week.  It’s been busy and a tad chaotic and on Monday while everyone was enjoying the lunar eclipse, it was overcast and we had a slight mishap could have ended up fairly bad had I not been working from home.  I mean, maybe the house wouldn’t have burned down, but poor Bowser could have perished.  So… what happened?  We had a temporary lighting situation set up while I waited for a more permanent fixture to arrive.  On Monday, I went upstairs and immediately smelled something burning.  I looked around and realized that there was smoke in Bowser’s habitat.  I panicked and then saw that the light had come unattached from the top of his cage and had swung down and was touching his fabric hammock, which was smoldering.  I got him out right away and he was okay, but that scared the crap out of me.

On Tuesday I went to Target (as you do) during my lunch break.

There was plenty of TV and game watching this week, actually.  Trying to keep everyone out of some severe funkiness, and for me that sometimes just means doing nothing.

Apparently, Vega and I have been buddies this week. Haha!

Sometimes eating your feelings isn’t always a bad thing either?

A little gaming helped lighten the mood a tad on Friday night, so there was that.

On Saturday we attempted to get some stuff done around the house and Molly was kind enough to come over and bring me wine and and help me keep an eye on the kids.  Sometimes it’s nice to just have a friendly ear to talk to.

On Sunday, I insisted we get out of the house and get some sunshine and what have you.  Also… I really, really wanted to see the baby tiger.  It helped moods a tad, but in the end everyone was still just a tad cranky.

At least I tried, right?  Haha!  We ended up stopping for apps and happy hour before heading home.

Then I had to watch the Game of Thrones Season Finale.  So good.

And now, here we are at Monday again.  Since I start my work day earlier on Mondays, I’ll be able to head to the gym to hopefully begin a new weekly routine. We’re going to try and work in at least 2-3 gym workouts a week and see how that goes!  On that note… Happy Monday!

    Not that it helps, but we’re all a bit cranky over here too. A lack of sleep will do that. Plus Ave is getting a bit independent and stubborn. I’m pretty sure it’s all correlated.

    Poor Bowser. I’m glad you were able to save the little reptile, although I don’t think you should rule out the cat as the cause of the fire. Food for thought? Speaking of food, pass me that ice cream please.

      It is at least comforting to know that there seems to be a lot of crankiness going around. Vacation please? Haha!

      Ugh, that ice cream was so good! Too good.
