We had the opportunity to watch Molly over the weekend a couple of weeks ago. Tita Sol went to Nebraska and needed someone to look after Molly while she was away. We immediately jumped at the chance. I didn’t have to take time off work this time around because we only had to watch her over the weekend, but we did cancel all of our plans so that we could spend all of our time with Molly.
We picked her up from Tita Sol’s house on Friday right after work. We’d recently started Salsa Fridays, but we had to skip this week so that we could hang out at home with Molly. Our friends wanted us to come out on Saturday night, but we told them that we couldn’t because we had Molly and we didn’t want to leave her at home. Not that we’re worried that she would destroy anything because she is the sweetest, most well-behaved, most perfect dog ever. We just didn’t want her to be lonesome.
We get made fun of quite a bit because every time we watch Molly, we make all of these plans to take her out and show her a good time or just hang out at home with her. We can’t help it, though. She’s like our child. If you have your child for the weekend, don’t you want to spend every waking moment with them?
So anyway, we made plans to take Molly for a walk along the river. Misty and her two dogs were going to walk with us also. It rained though, so that nixed our plans. Our friends wanted us to come out to celebrate April’s birthday, but we couldn’t leave Molly. Somehow they ended up deciding to celebrate at home. Cory and April were nice enough to let us bring Molly so that we could go.
We had a great time at the Phelpi, celebrating April’s birthday. We ended up having a small six-person poker tournament, which I ended up winning. I think it was because everyone was drunk but me. Yes, including Brian. Ever since he learned he can drink wine, he hasn’t been without. He was a source of amusement for Jay, and I suspect everyone else that night. I was a little worried, but did find it hilarious. He reminded me of that kid on YouTube who was acting high after a dental visit.
We stayed up way too late that night. I think I ended up skipping my Sunday workout that weekend. Mostly because I was tired from the day before, but also because I knew that we’d be taking Molly home that night and I wanted to spend as much time as I could with her.
We really love having Molly over. I can’t wait for us to watch her again!
