what a weekend.

I just got back from what was, hands-down, one of the most fun and entertaining weekends I have had in a long, long time. My friend Bethany emailed me last Sunday to say she was putting together a last minute trip to her parents' house on Smith Mountain Lake, and she invited me to come, too. It took a bit of last-minute frenzy, but I managed to find someone to care for all three dogs.

And, oh, wow, was it fun. Swimming, boating, good food (including s'mores), friends, and a ton of laughing. I even swam in the lake twice. Where there are fish. This is a very big deal.

Quite frankly, I mostly survived it by pretending that they weren't there. And kicking my legs constantly to scare them away.

And I so wish that I had a video of my (failed) attempt to jump off the super bouncer (kind of an inner tube/trampoline), not only to share, but to see it myself - because as funny as it was to me, I think it must have been that much more hilarious to watch.


  1. Sounds like you had a great time.
    Congratulations on your fame at Tip Junkie!

  2. Hi! Thanks for stopping by. Don't feel bad, I'm not a fan of swimming period, and definately not in a lake where something could bite my toes off (C: And I can't see the bottom

  3. Thanks for the tips on puppy training! We're currently taking a class at PetCo, and it's working great for one dog and not the other. I will be looking into clicker training more this weekend. :)


Thanks for taking the time to visit, and comment!
