The more Sara, the better!

Daily dribble about life, pets, coupons and of course NKOTB!

On The Move

Finally, after 5 LOOOONG years, I’m moving!!! I’m super duper excited!

A friend of mine bought a house, so she moved out of her rental early, and we were able to swoop in early and snatch it up before it was put on the market!! Denver is in a crazy housing ordeal right now (ugh, thanks weed legalization), we have like the 4th highest rental rates in the whole country its ridiculous.

So anyways, its a 2 bedroom, 1 bath, full basement and, AND! HAS A BACKYARD FOR THE DOGS!!! Hardwood floors throughout, no dishwasher though, sad face. My friend was gracious enough to leave her washer and dryer for us AMAZEBALLS as well as a free standing AC unit. I must admit, the backyard having part is selfish on my part, that i don’t have to walk the dogs in the snow anymore (=  It’s only about 20 minutes away from where I am now, really less than 15 miles. But its in a part of town I’ve never LIVED in, but I am somewhat familiar with. I’ll adjust fine. Just need to find where all my grocery stores are to get my couponing done!

I’ve been packing for WEEKS now, because I’m a procrastinator, and I pretty much have all the major stuff done. Just have to take apart the bed friday night, and the speakers in the living room and all the things I cant pack cuz i need, like shower stuff, makeup etc.  I’ll have to spend all day sunday cleaning the old place so I can be done with it. The cats are gonna be stressed, the dogs are gonna love it I hope.

Wednesday I leave for my next NKOTB cruise!! Such a time crunch on all this but it is what it is. I’m not 100% prepared for this cruise as usual, but whatevs its my vacation and I’ll make due!

Welp I gotta get back to packing, well after I finish the new Blacklist episode!!

Waggin’ and Trailin!

Its that time of the year again! We’ve got a month until the Wag ‘n Trail and Ellie and Abbie want to raise $500 for homeless pets!! 

Luckily, most dogs can’t do math, so they dont know the difference between a $5 or $50 donation, so skip your morning latte tomorrow and help out a cute puppy or kitten!! 

Both Ellie and Abbie were shelter dogs and Ellie even came from the Buddy Center that we’re supporting! 

Here’s what your donation can help:

$30.00 will help us nurture a kitten or puppy that needs foster care

$60.00 will help us shelter and care for a lost dog until he is reunited with his owner

$85.00 will help us spay a mother cat before she goes to her new home

$115.00 will help us teach schoolchildren to be kind to animals

$250.00 will help offset the costs of rescuing pets from cruelty or neglect

 

Abbie says GO DO IT!! DONATE TODAY!!!

Vrooooom!

Sorry ya’ll I’m still alive, life has just been busy as fuck lately!

I have classes on Mon/Wed/Fri, Internship Tues/Thurs, and still somehow working 5 days a week ~ 25 or so hours. I seriously dont know how i’m managing it all, you know I love sleep.. and having to be up early every day is killing me!

My internship is pretty awesome, the clinic is so nice and so are the other techs and the vets are really informative!
They’ve taught me how to place a catheter, did one on a greyhound, place an ET tube, did that on a golden, and drew blood from the jugular on a Bernese  They’re also showing me how to monitor anesthesia and chart dentals. I’ve already done so much at this clinic than I did at all previous internships, so thats nice.

I got an 87% on my first test in Anesthesia so that made me happy! I’ve got another test on monday for Clinical lab.. so I need to start studying for that as soon as Im done writing this!

Monday night I surprised the man with tickets to an NHL game! It was my first time being at one and we had awesome seats, we were 13 rows behind the Avalanche’s goal so it was really neat to be that close, I miss playing hockey! They ended up losing in OT but it was still fun. The funniest thing though, we look down our row when ppl came to sit down, and it ended up being his cousin and her two sons! The people already sitting next to us were her boyfriend and his kids! Of all the rows, and all the seats in that event center, they sat in ours! Crazy! Our friend Michaela was also there, she saw my posts on FB and realized we were only 4 sections away from each other!

I’ve been trying to clean my house for the last week or so, because my mom and step dad are coming to town next week, to bring me her old car! A new to me car!! A few weeks ago I started asking her if she was ready to buy a new car, didnt she want something shiny and new to drive around?…. about 2 weeks later she called me on a sunday and said she went and bought a 2012 Highlander! yay! So they’re planning to get here Thursday most likely and then flying home on Saturday. Just a quick trip, they never stay long. Actually the last time they were here was when they brought me my current car, and I think that was about 6 ish years ago??

So i’ll be getting a 2002 Trailblazer. I’m excited to have heated seats and a sunroof! May have to upgrade the stereo though, I doubt it has a connection for my phone to play pandora or anything. We’ll see once it gets here. Im happy though! Can’t wait to have a reliable car again!! An 11 year old car vs a 16 yr old car is way more manageable!

All thats left for me to do around here is put away my mountains of laundry and clean the carpet in a few places.. aside from that it’ll just be maintaining it for a few days! Trying to think what I can do with them while they’re here..maybe go to the Wild Animal Sanctuary..the bears are all hibernating, but the lions and tigers will be out and about!

Welp I better go get my notes going cuz I know Im going to be busy tomorrow with work and celebrating the 2nd half of our Vday, we both had to work all week long so we didnt get a chance to do anything other than the hockey game!

Dirty dogs

Took the dogs to Cherry creek state park last week and they loved it. Ellies been once before years ago.. They of course found the “creek” aka mud pit and had a blast getting dirty. Which just meant bath time when we got home which they were Not happy about. But they sure slept good that night! I think we walked about 3 miles thru the park that day !

Wag’nTrail 2012!

 

Please support us in our goal ($300) to raise money for animals in need of a home and little tender loving care.

I am participating in the Wag n Trail on September 22 in an effort to help the homeless pets at the Dumb Friends League shelter in Castle Rock, the Buddy Center.

The Buddy Center needs our support in caring for the more than 5,000 animals that come through its doors every year. Animals are brought to the shelter every day because their families can no longer care for them, they are lost or need medical attention that their families cannot afford. The Buddy Center welcomes all animals regardless of the situation and provides them with food, shelter, vaccinations and medical care. Every pet that goes to a new home is spayed or neutered, has a microchip ID implant, a collar and tag, and a free post-adoption veterinary vsit.

The Dumb Friends League works hard to return lost pets to owners and place pets in new, forever homes. Any donation helps and is greatly appreciated. Please help me save more animals in need by making a gift to support me in the Wag ‘n Trail. Your generosity is greatly appreciated by all!

Ellie was adopted from the Buddy Center so this fundraiser is near and dear to her heart! Abbie is also a shelter dog and knows just how important raising money is for homeless pets!
