I'm covered in grunge and animal hair. I'm feeding dogs and horses (and now fish) for a neighbor of mine for the next week. He has a fantastic house way off the road full of antiques but dogs everywhere. And they bark and bark and bark. I don't feed all of the dogs. Some of them live in stalls in the horse barn and are really aggressive. If I ever don't show up for work come look for me. I probably accidentally opened one of those stalls. This morning my mom was standing inside the house and heard a thumping sound on the window. She looked outside and nothing was there. Now she's afraid to go back inside. GREAT. Just in time for Halloween.

Sleepy Owner


Miranda sent me this video link. If you have or have ever had a cat you will most ceartainly understand. Claude did this to me every morning before he got tossed out of the house.

I Had A Bad Day.

Yesterday I had a meltdown. I'm not 100% sure why. I was telling my mom a story and I started to cry...and cry...and cry. It was aweful. I don't know if it was because it was almost Monday and I hate Mondays. Or maybe I was just due a really good emotional fallout. Martha brought me cotton candy from the fair and I recovered. All I want to do today is curl up on the couch and watch my favorite Christmas movie.

Midnight Posting

This picture is what happens when you post in the middle of the night, you're tired, you just ate too much ruining your diet, and you just had to kick Lottie out of the house. I just got back from helping sort clothes at a thrift store for low income people. It took 2 hours out of my life. It should take more. I'm planning to go back very soon. I'm now on my 987th day of poison ivy. Predasone didn't work....it's now worse. A reward is being offered to anyone who can cure me.

My goldfish died last night. I think I killed him by accident. We've been putting Martha's water in our well for the last few months because we have no water. I'm pretty sure he didn't like the taste of it. My dad has to get him out of the tank tonight unless we have any volunteers. I am seriously afraid of him. He weighs about 400 pounds. He should have died 2 weeks ago during the camp out and Miles could have eaten him. I'm sad he's gone but he was about 4 years old.

Waiting...and waiting...and waiting....and wai

What do you get when you have fishing line, a bobber, bait, and a creek....nothing. I don't think fish exist in our part of the country. I should have dumped my goldfish in just to make things exciting. I came home from the camping trip with a massive case of poison ivy. I guess not missing the first 7 weeks of survival class would have prepared me better for the shelter building, fish hunting, poisonous plant survival. I'm going to the doctor.
