This was one of the most productive weekends I’ve had in quite a while. We did a lot of housecleaning (including some gross work behind the fridge) in preparation for Huyen’s mom, who will be in town for two weeks starting this weekend. We were happy to find Method products at Target, as they helped with the particularly grimy behind-the-fridge junk.

Amina got a bit sneaky this weekend and paid for it, poor girl. She stole half my vegetable curry when I answered the door on Saturday. It had onions in it, though, which can be extremely toxic to dogs, so the vet had me induce vomiting with hydrogen peroxide. Fortunately, it worked and everything came back up and she’s doing fine. You’ll be happy to know that she swallowed entire sweet potato fries without even chewing. Just like her daddy.

We saw The Vulgar Bulgars at the public library on Sunday afternoon and they were awesome. They’re a klezmer band along the lines of The Klezmatics. Their self-released CD is simply excellent.

The week ahead is going to be busy, but I’m actually looking forward to it. I’m in the holiday spirit and avoiding Grinch-like tendencies for the most part.
