Come oooooon. There's just the area under the stairs to paint now! My dad finally blocked up the mouse hole so it's all ready to go! You can even do it while I'm away this weekend!

How was everyone's Easters and weekends? Mine was pretty good. The Irresponsibles came over with my ex-BIL who we still like and I ate myself stupid. The Irresponsibles are pregnant again and I can't help but roll my eyes, but whatever. It's their lives. You'd also think two people with weird names would know not to name their kid ATHENA, but again... whatever.

In the meantime Fawkes (the new kitty) got some kind of wound on the pads of one of her feet, so her foot has been all swollen and she's been chewing on it. My sister kept insisting there was a needle or a pin embedded in it and although I KNOW I don't have either a needle or a pin small enough to disappear completely I got pretty paranoid about it. Took her to the vet today and had to help hold her down while he tried to shave down between her toes to get a better look at it, so that was fun. The good news is he said that there's no open wound and he gave me some powdered meds to sprinkle on it to help numb and heal it. So fingers crossed the swelling will go down soon!

Those are some nice jeans. Really nice jeans. And you can't even see the creepy uncle hair!

I still don't like that skinny tie, though.

nope, it's real :D (and we would have been in 8th grade when he was a senior, depending on our school's cut off dates ;) )

I've been stalking my 14 year old son's FaceBook Friends list. so far there is only one real concern: the gangsta white boy who can only talk in text speak and constantly praises Weed :? on the plus side, my son has a gay friend! I don't know why that makes me happy, but it really does :)

Kel - I think its cool that he's open to being friend with all kinds of people, though that weed guy would concern me too... I assume you've had the drugs talk with him, right?

Saw this and hadda share - ok, I just thought we needed decorating here...

how was everyone's weekend. I had my first week at 2 new hospitals. It kinda sucked but hoping that getting in the groove and getting to know the nurses will help things out this week. They have reduced the days I work (at my request) to Tue, Wed & Thur and every 4th weekend. I can live with this. I wanted to be home more during the weekdays during the summer so my 13 year old will have less unsupervised time... plus I just hate working.

I just completed a full year at this job. I was surprised with a $100 retention bonus on my last paycheck. It was like finding a $100 bill in a really ugly, too tight pair of pants that you are forced to wear to an party you don't want to attend. But still....$100!!! That would pay for a round trip train ticket to see Alex/Vicki next month while she's in StL MO.

Whoo hoo! Good job! I think you should use your bonus for just that!

I had a good weekend, even if it was short. I enjoyed getting away for a little while where I didn't have to feel guilty about not working on the living room or cleaning or doing any of the things I'm supposed to be doing.

On my way down I stopped at a cemetery that I have photographed before, but I went at the wrong time of day and all the stones were shaded which was disappointing since there are some fantastic stones carved by a man named Pike that are in sad shape and probably won't be around for too much longer. BUT, when I went on Friday the sun was in the exact right spot to enhance the carvings and I'm very happy with the results.

Image


And I got to hang out with DE who discovered the greatest donut shop ever. We saw Bobby and we were high enough in the balcony that we couldn't see his hipster beard. Saturday was sadly raining, but I took her out to the famous lighthouse anyway, which was kind of nice because it meant minimal tourists. Yay! Unfortunately I didn't notice that my camera lens was covered in rain and schmutz and all my photos look like someone sneezed on them. Hrmph.

Image

Now I want a longer vacation. AND MOAR DONUTS.

Amy – yeay for bonus even if its just a drop in the bucket. Glad you were able to adjust your hrs to suit you better.

JodieO – that’s such a cool picture! Love walking in old cemeteries, you find such interesting things!

Moi, getting ready to go away with my girlfriends this weekend to celebrate everyone’s birthdays this yr. We’re renting a house by the shore, going to the spa and restaurants, and I plan to make (and drink!) lots of piña coladas among other drinks… ;) Any suggestions for yummy ez to make drinks?

Wish I could bring THIS guy along, but don't worry, TravelRob will be there for some fun ;)

Hello! I've been playing catch up from my week off of work, and when I tried to get into the Flat it's been kind of wonky. I was a little concerned that someone here had changed the locks whilst I was gone.

Jodie, I'm so glad that you and DE had a nice weekend vacation! It sounds like you had a fun weekend with Bobby and donuts and rain. And, sorry (not really), but I'm not going to come paint your wall. BTW, I hope that you don't mind that I used you as a reference with Amy to let her know that I won't kill her in her sleep when she meets up with me in St. Louis this month.

Amy, Yay for your retention bonus! It is nice that they let you know that you are appreciated!

Muffin, it sounds like you are going to have a great relaxing girlfriend weekend coming up!

I am chaperoning my daughter's 5th grade field trip tomorrow. So that should be fun, right? (Did we ever decide on a sarcasm symbol?)

The Flat has been wonky lately. UC said there's some kind of server issue going on.

There's just one corner left to paint, but it's under the stairs and I'm going to have to pull everything out and there's all sorts of weird angles and I'm going to have to lay down for some of it and it's going to be such a pain in the butt. Bleh.

Don't listen to her, Amy. SAVE YOURSELF!!!! Kidding. Alex is a lovely lady to hang out with.

There was some kind of evil in those delicious donuts. I don't even have a sweet tooth and ever since those donuts I've been cramming sugary treats into my face as fast as I can. It must stop!

I found out today that the kitten AND his mama will be living in my house in two weeks, so I really need to get off my ass and get the house ready. At the very least I need to pick up Marlowe's room a bit since Fawkes has knocked everything around and I've had the door locked for a week to keep her out of it. I don't think three cats will appreciate living in just my living room and kitchen. Has anyone had to litter train a kitten? The foster mom said that the kittens are currently using a cookie sheet instead of a proper litter box because they won't climb in and out of the regular box. And that for some reason they like pooing in their food bowls. How to I fix this madness?!
