Meet Mr. Draper...the Fish


The weekend seemed to fly by, like most weekends do, but I don't really mind since we were able to relax, catch up on sleep, and just enjoy each other's company. I have to admit though that there were several highs and lows to the weekend.

Friday:
Highs
- Crossing off so much on my work to-do list
- A fantastic dinner at The Goose with N and M
- The start of the weekend, of course!

Lows
- Being overtired and super cranky, so going to bed at 9:30

Saturday:
Highs
- Getting to sleep in and M bringing me Starbucks
- Going to the gym for the first time in months for a 15 mile bike ride
- Took Louie to the dog park to get him tired out
- Syracuse beating Louisville for homecoming! (Sorry, Ashley!)
- Made some fast cash babysitting the cutest little one-year-old
- Broke 10,000 words with NaNoWriMo

Lows
- Realizing how terribly out of shape I am
- Not getting to spend Saturday evening on the couch with M
- Alabama losing

Sunday:
Highs
- Spending the morning at another dog park watching Louie play
- Meal-planning for the week
- Baking Tollhouse chocolate chip cookies (and eating the dough)
- M being the best and buying me a new fish to cheer me up, cue Mr. Draper

Lows
- Andy dying. R.I.P. little Andy Pettitte. You had a good 3 years! (Yes, I cried...a lot.)
- Spending all my cash already on groceries

Overall, it was a pretty good weekend. We almost got red-bellied toads, but we don't really have the space for a tank, nor do I want to commit to having to buy crickets every week. So instead, we got another male Betta fish. He already seems like a wonderful addition to our household.

Welcome to your new fishie, Mr. Draper!

Aw, so sorry about Andy! Congrats on breaking 10k words, though! I used to have red-bellied toads. I wouldn't do it again. Getting the crickets in there in proper rations was too much of a pain. Beta fish rock!

Krista said...

Sorry for the loss of Andy. Sounds like you had some other highlights to help lift your spirits which is good. And Mr. Draper is a cutie, I have a beta in my office at work, his name is Mikey :)

Lauren said...

Whitney said...

Your weekend sounds packed! Your fish's name reminded me of Ruthie Draper from the movie Dan in Real Life - have you ever seen that movie??

Meghan said...

Sounds like an eventful weekend! I love Mr. Draper - so cute!

Nice betta, I got a female one at home.

Aw, I had a beta fish once too - but my roommate took the fish for the summer (because I had cats and was pretty sure my cats would eat the fish), and she killed him :(

Jenny said...

You had a busy but productive weekend!

Love betta fish, we have one too! Weenie...named by the the 4 year old.

Cookie dough...yum!

yay for going to the gym for the first time in a while! how do ya feel??? And I bought a beta fish for an old boyfriend and I think we were doomed from the start bc we filled the water too high and the fish committed suicide by jumping out!!!
