Smelly Saturday

in All Posts

Heck yes, Saturday.


Today is the big day.  Operation Move the Clinic.  I am mostly just excited about the experience, but it is taking all weekend between packing, moving, set-up, doing the walk-through on our old place, and getting utilities turned on at the new place.  And, of course, it’s all made so much more interesting by the presence of Henry!  As long as we have his jumper, he’s good.  So he’s been jump jump jumping amidst the boxes. 


This morning, however, has been about household chores.  Laundry (on the dining room table, of course), breakfast, baby time, pet care.  As I said before, I really don’t think the addition of Pippa has added too much work to our daily load – cats are SO easy (on average) in comparison to dogs (on average).  Plus, she is so sweet that I don’t mind taking care of her at all.  I do feel like on permanent poop duty between changing diapers, cleaning a litter box, and scooping up the dogs’ business.  I’m surrounded by pooooop.


On that note… Breakfast.


French toast with a red pear.


Better get going – U-Haul awaits.

    Where did you guys get that animal head in the dining room? I am looking for something similar but a moose and haven’t been having much luck finding one.

        HaHa. The plural of moose is moose (like fish) or were you just trying to be funny?!

    Good luck with the move Caitlin! I too will be moving soon (not an office, just myself!) but since I’ve been living in the same house for 6 years, I think it might be worse! Just remember… bend from the knees!

    Good Luck! Moving is never fun

  • Sophie @ threetimesf November 10, 2012, 10:08 am

    I hope the move goes smoothly – remember it will be worth it!

    Haha aww Caitlin & her poop world! I love how cars are usually so low-key. I could totally do cat and new baby, but dog and new baby? So much harder! That’s coming from a gal who has never owned a dog, though, so what do I know?

    Have fun with the move! So exciting!

    RED pear?! Sounds tasty!

    Ooooo your breakfast looks delicious. Have fun moving, I hope it all goes smoothly!

    haha I love the transition from poop to breakfast!

    Good luck on the move! Hopefully you have strong men to carry the heavy boxes/furniture. That’s always my least favourite part of moving.

    I absolutely fall in love with your dining room every time I see it. I love everything about it, especially the colour choices. Good luck with the move! I’ve only moved once as an adult and it was stressful and tiring.

    I hate to say it, but at some point (at least with animals) you just get used to the poop. Yeah, it smells, but it just becomes so… regular. Augh- I’m so disappointed in myself.

    • Caitlin November 11, 2012, 9:21 am

      Good pun!

  • Steph November 10, 2012, 11:17 pm

    Waiting on pins and needles! Can’t wait to see what the clinic looks like 🙂

    Haha, that does sound like an awful lot of poop! Love your transition from that to breakfast. 🙂 Good luck with the move! I’m moving soon too…it’s a huge headache and a lot of work, but so exciting and rewarding in the end. Enjoy!
