The perfect day (Saturday)

7 a.m. – Lola wakes up.

7:11 a.m. – I drag myself out of bed.

7:15-8 a.m. – Lola and I watch some Dora, have some breakfast, just slowly wake up together.

8-9 a.m. – Lola and I have playtime.

9 a.m. – I wake Ray up, telling him I need to go pick up the cat (she was in surgery Friday and has an overnight stay). He surprises me and says we are all going to go. Cool.

9:30 a.m. – Leave.

9:32 a.m. – We realize that, like most of Bethany’s planning attempts, we’re going to be 22 minutes early for our 10 a.m. appointment. So we go to the bakery and get some donuts and coffee cake.

9:47 a.m. – Go to Dunn Bros for some coffee.

9:56 a.m. – Get to the animal clinic. Now this was Lola’s first-ever trip to the vet. We walked in and saw a dog, “Puppy!” Soon she saw the two friendly cats that wander around the place, “Kitties!” And, then, there was a puppy, a very excited puppy, “More dog!” Next, a young couple came in with two cats and a dog. Now things were getting a bit out of control. “Mommy! Kitties! Daddy! Puppies! More puppies! More kitties!” And she is Out. Of. Control. Matters are made a little worse when the puppy tries to give her kisses, "Mommy! No puppy kisses!"

10:24 a.m. – Finally leave animal clinic and go home with Lucy. Lucy sits on the backseat in our borrowed cat-carrying case. Which was enough to put Lola in another tizzy because the cat is next to her. And Lola wants to play. And Lucy is, well, in pain and wants to do nothing. Lola is shrieking with excitement and Lucy is crying because she hates the car. And is in pain.

10:30ish-11:30ish – Home Depot. Carpet considerations. Fun times. Get more paint. (Why does it seem like we always need more paint!?)

11:30ish-2ish – While Lola naps, Mom works, Dad paints, Lucy cuddles.

2:30ish – Lola wakes up. We want to do something fun. But no more driving around. So we decide to play in the backyard. But Lola insists on wearing her tutu. We play bocce ball, badminton, Frisbee, tag. Best. Afternoon. Ever.

5ish – Go to dinner (no one wanted to cook!).

6:30-7:30 – Playtime at home with Lola. Fun.

8 p.m. – Lola bedtime.

8-12 – Bethany kicks Ray’s butt in Wii. Lots.

- Bethany :)
