This week is going to be light on the blog postings. It just so happens to be midterm week (I did the math… they’re off the “middle” of the term by a week or 2… who has a college degree now, suckers) and seeing as I have approximately 8 bajillion and 2 projects due and approximately 3000000000 exams, I’m going to need all the help I can get. Anyone know a great psychic who is particularly good at exam taking? I’m willing to pay him/her room and board in the shed out back. PS – I need to at least see a 90% on my tests to qualify for the privilege to sleep next to Ralphy the Rat and Matilda and the Spider family.
I’m also experiencing a mild to moderate case of depression and so am not in the mood to blog… stupid thing rears it’s ugly head near about this time of year when the days get shorter and the weather gets colder and the stress gets piled and the eating gets lamer. The kind of depression that permeates the whole body… the heart is heavy, the limbs are dragging, and all you want to do is sleep and eat and cry… and then rinse and repeat! I am sorry for everyone who has to be around me because I am currently an over-reactive, short-tempered BEAST! Gonna have to get a hold on that one somehow, Whit-meister. I wish the will to control one’s self and one’s emotions worked during Depress-a-palooza! Paint on that smile. This too shall pass…
I did have a few moments of genuine smiliness…
Owls everywhere! Lindsay gave me these super cute owly things for my birthday. Now, all I need is to get back that baby owl I once had living in my window well and I’ll pretty much be an owl connoisseur.
And if I was a 12-year-old girl, I’d be super excited to receive this here gift… COUGHBESTILLMYPERVERTEDHEARTCOUGH!
Gee… uh…. thanks, Avster? I haven’t quite decided what the best way to thank someone for above-mentioned teenybopper dreamboat, but mark my words… I’ll think of it! Note to self: You may or may not have blogged a teensy bit too many Bieber Fever references.
Madre uncovered the cross stitching project I started last year but then never figured out what to do with… it made me smile anyway… finished or not!
After a pretty rough Saturday it made me smile to help Madre make these candy skeletons for the toddlers in her nursery class. Talk about sugar overload! Eh… they ain’t her kids! 😛
Question of the Day: Do you have a decorating obsession (i.e., like my owly things)? Any cute fall/Halloween-type projects?
PS – As a heads up… the days I’ll post this week… Monday (today duh!), Wednesday (Hollow’s Ween!), and Thursdee (November already!? What!?) Have a fabulous week!
PPS – Sending thoughts and prayers to those on the East Coast with the arrival of Sandy aka Frankenstorm. Stay safe and obey!
