Pretty October Weekend

IMG_20171022_134554_985Ugh and it's Monday again. I am dead tired too. We went to bed around 11 so not crazy late. But around 4.30 the smoke detector in the other bedroom went off. I still have no idea what caused it. There was no smoke or reason that we could see. But yeah, not a fun way to be startled awake and then of course couldn't fall back asleep again either. Now it's time for work and I am a little groggy. Fun. 

The weekend was nice though. Friday I worked from home because I had my x-ray appointment at the orthodontist. Relatively simple appointment. Next up is the actual consult for the braces which won't happen until November 16. So definitely not a fast process but that's ok. I have drawn this out for this long, a few more weeks/months isn't going to make that much of a difference. I really don't want braces but ultimately it's the right thing to do. If I get an implant now (for the broken/missing tooth) then there is no guarantee that it will last due to my bite and the way my teeth are. Just wish all that stuff wasn't so expensive. Ugh. 

Saturday we had a vet appointment with Sadie. Just her yearly check-up for shots etc. She absolutely hated going of course. It's amazing how loud she can get since she's usually a pretty quiet cat and just peeps and quietly meows. But once you put her in that carrier she starts to act like a Tasmanian devil and develops a volume that's just crazy. Well, we managed to get to the vet and back without too much issue. Then when we got back she decided to be weird and wouldn't eat but she has snapped out of it again thankfully. 

Saturday after the vet we went to Bob's to look for a new bedroom set. We ended up settling on this one - a different one than what I had originally picked out from the website. But seeing it in person we decided that we liked that one better. It also has deeper drawers and more storage which is a big plus of course. We also bought a new mattress since this new bed is a queen size and the one we have now is a full. Looking forward to the new mattress. We went with a Bob-o-Pedic which is basically their own version of a Tempur-Pedic. We tested out a few different ones and liked the one we tried the best. It's also pretty reasonably priced so that's a plus. We will get everything delivered on Nov. 2nd. We could have had it sooner but that will give us some time to declutter the bedroom and get rid of some current items, as well as move the older dressers upstairs into the attic for extra storage. It will be nice to have some extra storage for a change. 

Sunday we went for a hike at Weir Farm again. Tried out a different trail this time which was definitely a much less traveled trail but was nice to be out and about and the weather was pretty perfect. Fingers crossed that we end up with decent weather next weekend when we go to Martha's Vineyard. Well, off to work. Let's see what the week brings. I am off on Friday so that's something at least. :)
