Charley Harper inspiration - birds

I enjoyed doing this for a bit, and then became a bit bored. I am ready for my own design and something a bit geometric now. K~

Turtle PT

Well I had to give a baby snapping turtle some Physical Therapy tonight. It was about the cutest thing I have ever seen. I needed to share with the group. The Physical Therapy was swim therapy. I put him in the water and at first he just sat in the water like a cork, bobbing up and down. I was worried he was going to drown, so I rubbed his tummy and feet a bit. and he got a bit more active. Then he swam around a bit and worked on getting up on the brick. His big head ( way way to big for his body ) kept bumping the brick. After some time and some help, he got his little foot onto the brick and hoisted himself up. It was just so sweet!! K~

Ever have one of those days?

I feel like Bing looks in this picture, today. My brain is FULL to bursting and I need to just sit. I have been doing that for about 20 minutes now and it feels good. Maybe a nap around 1 PM and then I am off again to do the parent thing and work. K~

Oh my Pey Pey

WHAT A GAME!! I stayed up last night until 11 PM to watch my boyfriend. Always supportive, I was worried that they were losing most of the game. But in the 4th quarter with 4 minutes to go and down by 14 points, my Pey Pey came back with 2 touchdown passes to end the game at 35-34!!
I HATE one sided network commentary! The entire game, the network coverage was totally boasting and bragging about New England!! Now, they had a fine record going into the game, 6-2. But the Colts had a perfect record 8-0. The announcers had the nerve to say that the Colts better beef up their game if they were going to play in the same league as the New England Patriots!! I just don't get it. Who pays them to say this stuff.
They won and they played hard and they deserved it!!
My Pey Pey is a very good boyfriend. K~

What to do....what to do.....

So I have been working on updating my resume.

Mainly, to see if I can. And it appears that it will be a challenge.

I have been working on it steadily for a few days now and so far I have a hodge-podge of experiences that don't even match what I want to be when I grow up. I think it's hard to make a resume out, when I am not sure about what I want to do, let alone if I want to do anything. So as you can see it is a big dilemma.

The other issue I have, is that I don't even know what is out there that I may want to do. I have been doing a lot of informational interviews. I have got great leads on some super neat volunteer jobs, but boy, it would be nice to get paid for something once in a while.

I am plugging away. I am trying to think about getting out of the house more. Although, I like it here, I feel that I need to try and socialize more. Obviously, volunteer jobs have always been good to me. I just would like to bring in some income.

That said, I have been surprised by reviewing my college transcripts. My GPA was very good. I think the lowest I achieved was 3.50. That has been uplifting.

So the work continues.

Bingy is 3!

Well, Bing is three today!
He has quite a wrap sheet for being 3.
Remember when he was fired for not waking the kids for school?
He kind of smells like pepper due to the fact that the spa shampoo
- pumpkin pie spice -
has gone punk by now.
I had to call the Dr. and ask why my dog smells like pepper,
then it dawned on me.....
pumpkin spice gone bad.
He is still adorable and incredibly bad.
He likes to get on the table and eat whats there.
He likes to pee in the house if the wind blows.
He likes to steal the kids food practically out of their mouths.
He torments the cat to no end.
He barks out the front window morning, noon and night.
He is well, a dog.
He is a GREAT start of a nap partner, then he needs to go and bark.
He always jumps up on the bed and lays down and puts his head in my hand.
He loves to go to Gram Grams and bark at her house.
He does love us and likes to show it.
He enjoyed his donut from the donut store this morning.
He dragged us behind him the entire way there.
He got to meet a few other dogs along the way.
He had a great birthday and we will have his party tomorrow morning. Bing has no boundaries. K~
