hat and glasses

Early morning stuff

I'm wearing my glasses today. They go with my outfit, but more than that, they're kind of an escape. I know, they don't really "hide" me, but I guess I feel more protected when I'm wearing them. It's very odd, really.

I took my parents to the airport at 5 am. By "took," I mean that I lay half-asleep and groggy in the backseat as my dad drove, but of course I had to drive the van back. Thank goodness for friends who will wake up in the middle of the night and talk to you to make sure you don't fall asleep on the road.

So now the parentals are on their way to San Francisco-- my dad has a conference, and my mom's brother lives there. I've got the house all to myself, and I don't really want to be alone there. Anyone want to come keep me company? My parents say no boys, but right now boys are about as appealing (in that sense) as dead carp, so they needn't worry. So yeah, you guys are pretty much welcome to come over whenever. If you don't know where my parents house is (it's the house I grew up in), give me a call, and I'll give you directions.

Padfoot is really chewing up his back. He's definitely got a bald spot, and any amount of bitter spray I put on there (for dogs, to keep them from chewing) doesn't help. I scold him whenever I see him chew, but that doesn't seem to help either. Any suggestions? If this doesn't stop pretty soon, we're going to the vet. My poor doggy :(

I'm tired. Been up since 4:30, and I've got another ten hours of work ahead of me. Looong day.

During lunch, I came home to get my dad's van so I could get the papasan chair from Gena (Thanks! I love it!) right after work.

Of course, I didn't realize that the other errand I had to run after work (dropping Ron's things off at his apartment) required actually having his stuff, which is of course in MY car.

And now I'm home and exhausted and not really wanting to drive back out. Ron will get his stuff back (I haven't gotten mine, so I don't have to feel TOO guilty), but this new job is making me super exhausted. Plus the whole wake-up-at-4:30-this-morning thing. That adds to it.

I did however, stop by Winn-Dixie, since it was on my way home. I saw Davon, Andrew, and Joey, who all worked there when I did. I guess it's dedication to stick to a job there for five years. I couldn't have done it. I was there to buy Padfoot some Benadryl. He took some, and he isn't really chewing or scratching now, but he seems mopey. Benadryl makes me the same way, but it's still kind of sad to see my normally super-playful active dog walking slowly and moping around. Poor Paddington :( I gave him a bath, too. He was super-dirty. I guess that's what I get for letting him run around outside so much. He loves it, but I like clean, affectionate, indoor Padfoot too! So he's sleeping inside tonight. Don't tell his grandparents (who, by the way, got to San Fransisco safely).

nap time? nap time.
