I need a vacation.


Here is a brief recap of last week:
1. I officially finished my Portfolio Center experience and "signed off." Truth be told, it was a rather anti-climatic experience but as a wise, cut-paper-poster-assigning-sage once said, "enjoy the journey, it is the best part." So true.

2. My "gal-pal/lover/homsexual partner" and I are in the process of moving in together. She has 2 cats and 1 dog. I have 2 cats and 2 dogs. Together, that makes a grand total of 4 cats and 3 dogs.
Don't judge.
I would have a miniature pony and parrots if I could. Nonetheless, I need someone to remind me that when I say "I don't really have THAT much stuff...." I am friggin' lying. I do. I collect, keep, hoard everything. I even have a bag full of empty soup cans. "Why?" one might ask....well, I had this genius idea that I would make my "Hank's chair project chair" out of recycled materials...I imagined this beautiful chair made of the soup cans that I collected from my 2 years at PC along with other recovered materials that would be re-imagined into this beautiful piece of art that told a soulful story of my choosing. Well, that never happened and now I have a garbage bag full of soup cans. Yay me!

3. My beagle has started barking through the night because his sleeping box has been relocated. I feel like I am mothering an infant. I am up every 2 hours begging a DOG to be quiet. I think I may be losing my marbles....again.

4. I LOVE my job. I am, for the first time in my life, EXCITED to go to work. Excited. How many people can say that they are excited to go to work? I would argue, not many. I am at the perfect place, for me...everyone is so smart, conceptual, thoughtful and hard-working...it is fabulous.

5. Weeds is about to begin a new season. How MUCH do I love that show? I couldn't begin to express my love adequately.

1. Congratulations, Mary.

2. You can still make your chair, you know.

3. Babies. Dogs. Six of one, half dozen of the other.

4. I love my job too, except for when I don't. I'm happy for you.

5. Can you tape it for me?
