Oh little blog, how I neglect you.  But come on.  My eyelid has been twitching almost non-stop for over a week--a sure sign that I'm 1. stressed and 2. tired.  Something has to give!  And apparently at least one of these somethings is this blog. 

Things to look forward to this weekend:

1. Watching BBC from Netflix
2. The instant gratification of tips
3. No work on Sunday!
4. Trying a new church on Sunday--the beautiful Methodist one just a few blocks and across the tracks from my house
5. Dare I say it?  Buying paint for my new bedroom!  We're going green, people.  As in, the color green.  The paint will be just plain old Valspar.  I'm cheap and am not going to shell out for the fancy enviro-friendly no-fumes stuff.
6. Perhaps start a new really good book?  If I can find one?
7. Spending some quality time with the R-Dog

That's a lot to look forward to.  And the list of things not to look forward to is neglible.  So, it's good!

Have a lovely, lovely weekend all!

Uh Oh

Last week, I was at Old Faithful and Lake.  This week, I'm attending the Science Conference in Mammoth.  Which doesn't leave any little chunks of time to write since I still don't have internet access at home.  But, it's been a doozy.

1. Working at Coffee Crossing is making me some nice cash
2. Volunteered at the Blue Slipper Theatre and their production of "Dracula"
3. Ruffers is...maybe sick.  The vet thinks there's a mass on his spleen, which could be very, very, very bad.  Aaron and I took him for a hike last weekend and I don't want to believe it, but it may have been his last hike.  He's acting fine, so I'm hoping for the best.  And am trying not to cry.
4. Went to dinner with my friend Wendy, who was visiting from Alaska.  It was great to see her--we spent a good hour talking about how hot Michael Landon was.  Whew.  Oh, PA!

Gotta run!
