The dogs were good today, they were all relaxed in the sun. I watched the front while my manager went on break, but I had to call her in the middle because a guy came in for a day camp/boarding evaluation, so she had to work 12 hours with only half an hour break… Pretty awful.
I left town just about on schedule, and decided I wanted to stop at the Rabbit Ranch/Route 66 thingy on the way… I found it without much trouble (my gps was not pleased with the detour). It was closed, but I took some pictures. I parked with my front wheels in the mud because for some reason I thought I should keep out of the way (there was no one else there). And then I couldn’t get out. So I had to take handfuls of gravel and put it behind the wheels. After a couple tries, I escaped. If I’m not always sensible, I’m at least resourceful.
The rest of the trip was uneventful. And then! Dinner! With cool people! Yum! Hooray!
Okay. My back’s feeling (mostly) better. Peri was snuggly. <3
Work until 12, then stopping by my mom’s house to drop off Peri and pick up my cooler and snacks, then GOING TO SEE COOL PEOPLE!!!!!!
…So I probably won’t be around much for the next few days! Or I might! Have a good week, either way!
These are pretty old, I think this is back before Christmas… or at least around then.
Peri is not impressed with the snow blobs.
…I also smashed my head into the latch on one of the gates at work. Hard. I had to stop for a minute to whimper quietly to myself.
There weren’t many dogs today, and they were good… I had to give the Westie who always rolls in poop a bath because… he rolled in poop. Also a Basset puppy who was ridiculously dramatic about the whole thing. And two BIG black labs who weren’t bad, but man, they were heavy. A little while after that, my back started hurting a lot. I thought about going out to get a massage (which I don’t do, because… it’s expensive), but I’m hoping if I can relax, take some painkillers, take a hot shower, and sleep on my back tonight, I’ll be okay.
I’m SO EXCITED FOR TOMORROW!!!!
I’m watching Under the Tuscan Sun, which I’ve also read (along with a couple of the author’s other books), and it’s basically a love story between a woman and Italy (there’s more, but that’s the main thing, unless the movie changes it).
I want to do that. I want to go off and buy a beautiful old house in Italy and live in the countryside and be happy all day.
Maybe some day I’ll be brave enough to do that.
Had lunch with my friend. Sometimes we just genially snipe back and forth at each other (and she says ‘butt’ at me a lot), but today we had a real conversation and it was nice.
Lately I want to be around people. Let’s hold onto that for a while.
…But not too long. Enough is enough.
I don’t want to see my mom today, or Tuesday, or any time in the near future. I don’t want to talk to her. She’s not going to apologize, because she doesn’t think she has to, because she thinks she can say anything she wants to me, be as nasty as she feels like, and if I call her out on it or let on that my feelings were hurt, I’m being immature and stupid, because I don’t have a right to feel things.
I hate it SO MUCH.
I know she’s depressed, and the winter and lack of sunlight and cold just make it worse, but being a bitch to me doesn’t help make things better, so I really don’t want to put up with it.
This is the thing I made my friend. I had to wait til now to upload it.
It will also be added to clock commission list… which needs updating badly.
But really, is this not the coolest thing EVER?
An octopus clock!? You need one of these.
I went to the thrift store, and the only practical thing I got was a pair of socks.
But ooohhhhhhhhhhhhhh, the OTHER things I got…
I want lizards. All the lizards.
Also a tarantula.
I don’t work on Mondays so consider it watched like a hawk
*inarticulate noises of excitement*
how is this liked I did not like this it was already there this is creepy D:
Watch your mailbox on Monday!
So I went around and ran my errands, then went to the post office (I had the foresight to bring a sharpie and my packing tape with me this time)… I had my package in a used box, because I figured the price couldn’t be that much different than the flat-rate boxes…
She rang up the price, and it was $60! No way! So I repacked it in their box, and saved close to $50.
…And when I got back, my housemates got a call that AGN’s grandpa (my older housemate’s brother) just went into the hospital, so they rushed off to see him one last time.
…I sure don’t know what to say when things like that happen. Not that they talked to me about it, but… What do you say? ’I’m sorry’? I don’t know the man, and I’m not that close to these two either. I think if I were it would be worse, because then I still wouldn’t know what to say, but I would feel like I needed to say something.
Peri must have caught his ear on a thorn while we were out walking, because I noticed a drop of blood when we got back… But he let me wipe it off, then smear triple antibiotic ointment all over it. He’s a good boy. No shaking his head all over and coating the walls with blood, like SOME dogs I know…
Gonna go out pretty soon. Shopping and post office (WOOOO, ANOTHER PACKAGE I GET TO SEND, BEST DAY EVER!!!). Maybe lunch with my friend, if we can coordinate it.
