It's not been the best week. Bad news all around. I have a monster headache because I laid awake last night, worrying. It didn't help that the dogs decided that, despite the fact that they have no jobs, didn't purchase any of the bedding, and have no thumbs, they were going to take over the pillows. And at 4:15, Robbie decided to stand on the pillows and bark out the window; I don't know if he was busy barking at the birds who were twittering at that hour--whoda thunk they were up that early?--or if he was just barking because everything looks scary when you are small, brave, but dumb, and it was a window he's never looked out before--it's behind the headboard. Anyone want a cute little mouthy dog? He's really good if you want to get up early. Anyway, today is better, a little. It's payday for my P/T job, I am off to Barnes & Noble at lunch to get my magazines, I am going to a play at my part time job tomorrow night, the official opening night, so I get to schmooze with donors and reviewers, maybe get some hor d'oeuvres (that's not spelled right, is it?). The saddest thing is, I've worked at that theatre for 6 months, and I have yet to set foot in the actual theatre space, yet I sell tickets to it like a champ. Well, I did have theatre training, and I have such a sweet accent, how could I lie? Like a dog in summer, LOL.
I did find this site, www.websudoku.com. I actually have been enjoying it. I am not a math person, other than word problems. But now that I kinda know how to do it, sudoku makes sense. And the good thing about that site is you can check your answers as you go.
I am starting to think about getting ready for the get-together designer Sue Hillis is having in Richmond next month. It's on Memorial Day weekend, which is a slight bummer, because if the weather is good, that is the opening weekend for the beach (have I told you before how absolutely wierd it is to me that a beach is "closed" for the season?). But, I've decided that I can do one day there. It's only, what, two hours from here, maybe 100 miles. I can go down Friday night, come back Saturday night late, and still be on the beach with a frosty beverage on Sunday. I really wish I could afford to attend more retreats, it's just not possible now. Sorta like I can't join FOTM clubs right now. But I'll get there. Soon.
