Oh, hi. Vacation took longer than I thought. Well, I’ve been home, of course, but after taking so many days off from work, I’ve been trying to work my butt off to play catch up. Freelancing will do that to you. If you don’t do the work, you don’t tend to get paid. And I kind of need to get paid so I can do the little things like paying my rent. Not to mention, I have another little thing called GRAD SCHOOL LOANS that I have to start paying back in, oh, 4 days. Not freaking out at all or anything. Not at all. (hides under bed and starts crying for the next 20 years).
Once again, all I can say is thank God I love my work, because I’d probably have killed myself by now if I didn’t. Anyway, vacation was just lovely, thanks for asking. It was such the break I needed and gave me lots of time to hang with my parents and my fave aunt and uncle. I got some sun, did some reading (Sarah Lacy’s Once You’re Lucky, Twice You’re Good, David Sedaris’s When You Are Engulfed in Flames, and Chelsea Handler’s Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea- don’t laugh, I’m obsessed with her), and pretty much ate tons of food while moving as minimally as possible (don’t judge, it’s not called a vacation for nothing).
Other than working, I’ve only been dog-sitting a total of 3 times since I have returned from vacation. I got back from another stint today and realized that I might possibly be a semi-good mom someday (far and long away) because I dealt with a sick little baby dog. Not the most fun thing in the world, but I love that little pup, so it was OK. Also, it’s kind of nice to wake up every morning cuddled up with my arms around something (someone?). Yes, Mitzi sleeps in bed cuddling with me. Cissy sleeps on the other side of the bed but prefers not to cuddle too much. Omg I sound like a crazy dog lady right about now. Stopping.
I’m sure there’s more to share, but I will do so slowly so as not to write a massively long post and then wait another 2 weeks before posting again. And now. I must log-in to my Google Reader, which I’ve been so expertly avoiding for a very long period of time. I’m scurrred.
If you didn’t see my query on We are not Martha, I would LOVE it if you could check out Guidespot (if you haven’t already) and comment or e-mail you with your feedback for the site. If you like it, if you don’t, how it could be made better, all that fun stuff. Would you use it as a city resource? Why or why not? I need your feedback pretty much ASAP (you can comment or e-mail me) and am soo thankful for your help! Seriously, you guys are the best.
Gosh, I’ve missed this blogging thing!!
A little under the weather, but Mitzi is still cute as usual.
P.S. Did you know that when you have over 1,000 items on your Google Reader, it just says 1000+?? Now you do. Going to pour myself another cup of coffee.
