i'm so tired

I'm afraid there won't be any pictures with this post...again.
I had two pretty crappy days at the kennel this week, which ended in a house full of people last night. We had planned on hosting the weekly poker game, but I had not anticipated such a hectic and emotionally draining two days of vet exposure.
So, last night, I went to bed around 7-7:30 to try to get to sleep before people started to arrive around 8. Only, I didn't fall asleep, and then I COULDN'T fall asleep. I was awake from 5 a.m. that morning until about 1 a.m. WEDNESDAY morning! And then had to be up by 3:30 a.m. to get to work.
My sister turned 29 today, but we had planned on meeting up for tea on Thursday. Then her future mother-in-law died suddenly over the weekend and so, of course, plans changed. She has been at home consoling her fiance and, obviously, pretty distraught herself, but it is hard to skip your birthday, I think. So we were able to celebrate her birthday, if we got together today instead of Thursday. I am glad she didn't just skip her birthday, and I'm glad we were all able to still get together, but oh, my I am tired!
Unfortunately, I was thinking her gift would be here in time for our original 'play date' of wouldn't have been though, since I didn't get it today...probably tomorrow. She doesn't USUALLY read my blog, but just in case, I am not telling what it is.

Jason just found out that a shirt he submitted to is up for voting...I guess I should go vote for it. Maybe when I get the link, I can put it up in case any of you like it and want to vote on it. I don't really know the deal, but his last try wasn't even put up for votes, so this is cool!
**Update: here's the link if you wanna see the shirt: plaid the impaler (you can vote it you like, but i just wanted all to's funny)***

I took some shots with my new cardboard camera. Yesterday I took a shot of my bamboo plant. Today I took a couple shots of trees while on my 'lunch' break (is 8 a.m. considered lunch if you're at work at 4:30??). It was then that I realized I had not advanced the film in 3 shots!! Dummy!!! this will take some getting used to! I think my first roll of film will be a lot of over exposed, under exposed, or just plain ridiculous pictures! I will, of course, scan and share when the time comes.


  1. That is a funny shirt! I tried to vote for it but can't remember my user name over there :( I will think on it a bit. Get some rest!!
