Furbaby Friday: Azula’s Week in Reading 4/29/22

Azula is starting to get an inkling that something weird is going on around here. On Thursday, she got to see Grandma and Grandpa, who are in town for Andy & I’s wedding. She also watched Andy & I pack our bags for the honeymoon with some degree of concern.

One of the bags I packed was, of course, my bag of books for the honeymoon! I always have to pack several options because you just never know what reading mood will strike you once you arrive at your vacation destination.

Other exciting happenings for Azula include finding a giant squeaky ball on a walk (yay) and comforting Mommy while she cried a lot for some reason on Tuesday.

You see, my dress hadn’t been touched for final alterations when I went to pick it up on Tuesday. As in, the seamstress just totally forgot and tried to suggest I’d come on the wrong day until she pulled out the dress with the pickup date clearly written on the bag, at which point she promised to do the alterations in four hours so I could pick it up later the same day.

Naturally, I was pretty concerned she’d botch the alterations and ruin my dress, which somehow feels like a massively huge deal four days before you get married. In the end, though, I have a dress. A dress that isn’t perfect but will definitely do. Not that Azula gets to know about that, since the seamstress’ dog’s hair is plenty of black fur for one wedding dress.

Thankfully, that’s been the biggest drama of the wedding planning process so far, and the rest of the week has felt strangely calm. Azula and I have continued to enjoy our morning ritual of sitting on the couch reading/chewing bone, respectively. As I write this, she is chewing away contentedly beside me.

This will be our (my) last update for a week, as I’ll be taking a break from the blog while away on my honeymoon, and Azula will have to update me on her week in reading once we get back. I hope you’ve had a wonderful week, and a fantastic next week, as well!


Furbaby Friday: Azula’s Week in Reading 4/22/22

Happiest of Fridays, book friends! One week from today, it’ll be Wedding Eve, and I can hardly believe it’s so soon after all this planning!

Azula wants you to know she helped a LOT while we were printing things, by being oh so skeptical of the printer and its sounds.

This week was a pretty standard one for our little cattle dog. A morning walk every day, plus a little cool down run on Thursday after my speed work.

I feel a bit like my brain is mush after a fairly busy week, so I’m honestly struggling to recall what else happened this week. The semester is coming to a close (today’s the last day!) and many of the students are headed home for the summer.

I also moved offices, since my new boss is starting on Monday and my old office has always been the Assistant Dean office. I just took care of it while we were sans Assistant Dean. The office I’m in now also happens to be the one where I worked during my first days as a grad assistant nearly six years ago, so it feels very full circle.

Azula is curled up next to me as I write this, per usual. She doesn’t know it yet, but she’ll be spending several days with her best friend Ozzy soon, while Andy and I are on our honeymoon. For now, though, just getting in all the morning snuggles with mom that she can.

That’s all for Azula and I for now! We hope you’ve had a great week and that you’ve got an excellent weekend ahead!
