Just a few rambling thoughts and crafts from a mind that is full of both. I am talented in my mind but regularly run full throttle into the wall of procrastination. I have raised procrastination to an art form. A friend once told me I have a BS in BS and a minor in excuse making. If there is anyway to get out of doing my best, I will do my best to get out of it. Welcome to my saburban life. : ).. Lol.

All caught up.. Whew!

Busy, busy, busy!  Work, work, well, alright, so not so much work.  I was off from Wednesday afternoon until 10am Monday morning.  But by gosh!  I was busy!  Well, alright.  A little busy.  Really.  Alright.  Soo, not so much.  Enjoyed a little time off.  Enjoyed a Thanksgiving meal at a local restaurant.  Lol.  Don't laugh.  I didn't have to cook, didn't have to wash a dish and I didn't have to eat leftover turkey until it came out my ears.  I had some steak and shrimp instead.  : )..  Woot.
Relaxed on Friday.  Shopped a little.  Very little.  Grocery store only.  Black Friday craze?  Count me out.  Lol.  I saw someone was shot over a parking spot.  Umm.  Yeah.  Think I'll skip all that nutbucket chaos!
Spent Saturday afternoon sippin wine and catching up with my wine mob friends!  Pictures below.  Met the cutest, softest, sweetest little pup ever.  She's a cutie! 
Spent Sunday mornin relaxing, then spent a great afternoon and evening watching football (if you could call what the Chiefs do football), with friends and some more great food.
Spent Monday morning trying to relax and recover from a great holiday break.  Stayed up way too late last night and got up way too early this morning.  Spent today trying to recover from Monday.  Tried starting our vehicle this morning, only to find out that I ran out of gas the night before - RIGHT at that the top of our driveway.  Lol.  How's that for some luck?  : )..  This was the first time we actually let a tank run out, and only the second time that we filled it up.  It's a older Blazer II.  Yay.  There are things that I like, but there are things that I don't like about it.  Mixed feelings, eh.  It'll work until our Jackwagon is back up and running (something about a belt and bearings and the whole motor going kaplunk).
And now?  Still up way too late.  Gotta get up way too early in the morning.  Tomorrow?  Gotta feelin it's going to be spent recovering from today.  Lol.  It's a vicious cycle.  Oh well.  Too late now!  Got a lotta stuff done online though, so that's good.  This will be me in the am..

(still not a pic of me..lol)
Alrighty - callin it a night..

Too Many Blogs..

Apparently, my posts have been going to the wrong blog.  I didn't think that I missed five days of blogging.  Dang it.  Got the dealio figured out though and will be adding those posts back on this one, where they belong tomorrow.

It did not snow today..

Nope.  It sure didn't snow today.  I didn't see it, so it didn't happen.  : )..  It's days like this that make me happy to have an indoor job, and that I never quite got around to getting my hair cut when it was nice a couple days ago. 

That being said, this is where Jan is today.
 Ooooh yeah.  She's definitely there.
 Ooooor there..
Ooooor right there..
It doesn't even have to be a sunny day..
She likes overcast days with a breeze right before it rains..
Yup.  She's there..
And..  Nope..  It didn't snow today..
At all.
Not even a little bit..

: ( : / : l : 0 Noooo! Whew! Yay! : l>!!!!!

Wasn't feelin it this morning.  At all.
The Paws for Irving Animals lost the chance to
save over 10 precious lives because of Parvo and
because of reasons that have not been given, including
sweet baby Horton..  : (..  RIP little baby..
I finally made myself get moving.
It was rough.  Trash gathered and put out,
I made it to work.
I got to move one desk over yesterday
and believe me, it's like a totally new area.
I know.  It's only one desk away from my other one,
but it's a nice change of pace.
(not my actual office cubical)
Worried allll day long about the pups on Irving's
Code Red list today..
(not an actual picture of me)
Still had one left over from the possible Parvo
exposure Code Red list from yesterday,
as well as several more that were just out of time at the shelter..
Worry, worry, worry!
Work, work, worry, worry, work, work..
The pups had to be rescued by 3pm and out of the
shelter by 5pm.  There were three left at the last minute.
Noooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!   : 0...
(still not an actual picture of me -
but doesn't that look like "Will Wheeeeaton!"
lol - a little Sheldon quote for the day)
I'm getting an ulcer from all those pups in danger
in Irving, TX..  : (..
(getting closer to being me)
Then!!! On my way home, waiting for a red light,
I checked facebook again and saw this message!!!!
"all of today's group are safe so relax that ulcer!" 
Whaaaaat???  Yay!!!!!!!!!!!
All our puppies are safe for the day!!!!
Including...  Elvis!!!
I said, Woof! Woof!
Elvis has left the building!!!
Whew!!!  Yay!!!
Sooo, my ulcer and Dutch went to the downtown
square and had some Square Pizza..
It's at a place called "Square Pizza", not only
because it's on the downtown square plaza,
but because.. it's a square pizza..  : )..  Lol.
And yummy!!
However, also had a small side salad with ranch
dressing..  One bite and guess who was wearing
ranch dressing on their shirt?
(still not me - in the picture that is)
(wish it wasn't me with the ranch on my shirt)
I am soooo field of dreams when it comes to food.
If it drips, I will wear it.
Sigh.  Lol.
 TGIF..  Woot..

Fun with my puppies..

 Fergus cheesin..
 Milo chewin..
Emmy hiding her head like she tries to do
with every picture that I try to take..  Lol..
So, after being without a camera charger for a few months,
we finally bought the bullet and ordered one online.
Hard telling where the original one went.
I personally think that they self destruct after a while
so that you have to replace them.  : )..
Took the pups out back and played for a while,
we seriously need new tennis balls again.
We are down to two in the back yard,
well, except for three or four pieces out there
that just found their way back to the trash can.
It was a nice, short sleeved day, and the puppies
certainly enjoyed it!
Probably won't get that too much more..
Definitely glad to have a new charger,
this one has a car plug in as well.  Spiffy!

1,2,3,4 I declare a dessert war!

Another fun fundraising idea?  Dessert wars!  Ha!  How about several tubs of ice cream, flavored syrups, cherries, bananas, whipped cream cans, etc.  Two teams facing each others table, six feet apart.  The winning team is the one who has all of the opposing teams dessert topped  the fastest. Can anyone say food fight?  : )..
