Spent the weekend celebrating my birthday with my boyfriend

Friday was my dogs first birthday. My daughter had picked out a new toy at Walmart to give her. I invited my boyfriend over for dinner. I made tacos for him and my son and cheese fondue for my daughter and I. For dessert I had made a small carrot cake and some Butter Pecan fudge. I let both the dogs have a tiny piece of cake so they could celebrate too. My boyfriend was really exhausted and snored so loud all night that I could not sleep at all so the following day I was tired and grumpy. It rained most the day so our plans for the day got changed. On top of that his dog smelled so bad I had to bathe her and the odor wouldn’t go away so I had to put sheets across the couch to keep it from getting stinky and she was shedding so bad my tan carpet looked like it was covered with mud. He needed to get a dog kennel since he just got a beagle so we drove up to get one and I picked out two geocaches to do which wound up being really cool ones. The one container was a fake rat. The other container was in an old farm cultivator and was outside an art studio and gift shop. I loved looking around as I am such a lover of Art. We ate dinner at a sports restaurant and then went back to his house to feed his dogs where we discovered his basement had a lot of water in it. The old well filled up and the line coming in the basement had never been plugged up. There was a carpet over the drain so it couldn’t drain out. It took along time to push all the water out of there. Then when we went inside the ceiling tiles had fallen down on his bed. He asked if I wanted to go to the bar since he was in a mood after the stuff going on at his house. In the 5 1/2 years we have been together (off and on) he has never invited me to go to a bar in town with him before. We went and I had two drinks to his many refills. Sunday was chillier but no rain so we went kayaking to a big lake to find a geocache on an island. There was jet skis and boats going really fast and crazy all over even in the slow spots so it made it hard to paddle and he was nervous we were going to get hit so he was yelling at me to go faster lol. He stayed with the kayaks while I looked for the geocache. The island was neat it had grills and even a port-a-John. Afterwards we went hiking at a nature preserve in the Poconos but we forgot the bug spray in the truck so we were bit up horribly by mosquitoes and after awhile we had to just call it quits and leave. The photo I attached is one of the old buildings along the trail which was a pump house and spring. Before heading home we stopped at an Italian restaurant. The waitress didn’t take my order down correctly so instead of broccoli and fettuccine noodles with white sauce I got noodles just covered in butter and a little garlic. It was bland and gross but I was so hungry I just ate it and didn’t say anything.

Wow, you did a lot in a short amount of time, sounds like you had fun with the geocache, I would like to try that one day. I don't send food back either, I am afraid someone will spit in it!!

@cintol isn't it awful that in this world we have to worry that people will do something to our food like that! I love geocaching it is addictive.

@shaggin It is awful, I have seen them put things like that on tv so we don't eat out much. I will have to try geocaching sometime, sounds like fun

@LadyDuck my girl didn't and this girl didn't before I think she had something else going on. I noticed when my dog has a tiny bit of tacos like a spoonful she smells really bad after. Wet farts maybe lol ick

@LadyDuck she is in heat now so I don't know if that has anything to do with it but it was awful. Noodles with butter and garlic was neither very Italian like or very good lol

@shaggin I do not know if dogs in heat smell bad, but it's possible.

i hope he broke down and got the dog a vet. she could very well die at that point if something is not done.

Nope he never did take her to the darn vet and says she is no longer in heat. I told him she never was that something was wrong with his anal glands. He gave her antibiotics so hopefully she is fully better but it disgusts me he won't listen and shrugs everything off thinking I'm being overboard or whatever you call it.

@bluesa He temporarily stopped the water from coming into the basement but he will need to fix it permanently in the future. A few days after my birthday my boyfriend dropped off an amazing carrot cake he bought for me. It was absolutely delicious!

@andriaperry I can't sitting around unless I am mylotting or reading a book. Mostly I prefer to be outside doing something. Seems most the time I spend in my life is cleaning though ugh! Is the picture still not showing? It is on my tablet.

@andriaperry My boyfriend wants to live together in a bigger house. I can't stand being at his house it is so filthy I imagine if we live together I will be doing a lot more cleaning then I do now plus working so I'm going to be a lot more stressed.

Sounds like a Fun day minus the order mixup. We have been having a lot of that around here lately when we get food from places. Makes me wonder, and I am not getting to be the Best when it comes to not saying anything. I feel they need to be more personable and pay attention when someone is ordering food somewhere.

@KrauseHome maybe she was new and didn't realize the difference in certain dishes so she jotted down what she thought I meant. It wasn't a low cost meal so it was disappointing but I was so hungry I had to scarf it down and not complain which would make me have to wait longer.

@Shellyann36 spending time alone with my boyfriend is always nice. I wish he would join in looking for the geocaches instead of just waiting by while I go to look.

@Shellyann36 my daughter does wonderful in public school. She finished 8th grade with a 98 average. My son is in 5th grade and today is his first day back to cyber school after summer break. My daughter went back to public school on the 27th of August. This week has been hectic. My son's laptop screen broke so they sent us a new one which was lagging so bad we couldn't use it. That has stopped now after me puttering with it. But now we are having trouble with two websites we cant log in to class. I'm waiting to talk to someone at tech support. I've been on hold for 28 minutes. It's gotten my anxiety started.
