Boredom Part II

No, I don't wear the same clothing and take self portraits with my dog every day of the week. I just had some pics that got left out of the last post that I can't resist sharing:

And finally, she's had enough of mom's shenanigans and makes a break for it:

Slightly pathetic, but still precious to me...

Ok, so because our economy is currently in such a state of stability and prosperity, my hard working employer doesn't quite have enough work for me, and I've been cut back to 20 hours a week. I love my job (and am not totally convinced I could even find another's bad out there!), so I am willing to make the sacrifice and spend 2 days a week doing whatever I can find to occupy my time. Usually this includes hanging out with my s.a.h.m. friends, meeting people for lunch, catching up on housework, and studying. But sometimes...I get bored.
The following photographs document such an occurrence:

    Summer Update

    Some fun improvements have been made around the house lately thanks to Mom, Ikea, and a few hours free from law classes...

    Dear Cousin Brinkley,
    Please come visit me very soon in Atlanta. I promise to wash the dirt off my neck and share my squirrel with you. We can torture the kitty together. Love, Jersey

    The four-legged pot scrubber

    Let's say you've had a long day of work. You get home, actually manage to cook dinner, (a rare accomplishment) and after enjoying said dinner, you are wiped out. Your husband, who is usually a champ about helping with the dishes, has fled to CVS to fill a prescription for steroids since he has a raging case of poison ivy. What's a girl to do?
    Enter Jersey, the four legged pot scrubber. Simply place a dirty pot on the floor, wait 10 minutes, and voila! She'll have it spotless.
    What Dustin doesn't know won't hurt him. And YES, I did wash the pot myself afterward, making sure to sterilize it well.
    But it sure was nice to not have to scrub it!

    And we're back.

    Life over the past six weeks just did not include time for blogging. A few reasons: (and by the way that is incorrect grammar...I recently learned that anything to the left of a colon must be a complete sentence.)
    1. Job. Oh wow. I absolutely love it. But it absolutely wears me out.
    2. Houston. Texas is awesome. Everything really is bigger....
    3. Friends. I do think it's better,when possible, to actually spend time with people face to face.
    4. My Animals. Good thing I love them because they destroy EVERYTHING.
    5. Therapy. Enough said.
    This past weekend was almost a rebirth for me. I finally had some time off from work, spent time with my family, and sat still for a few moments. Mom was in town and we had the best time! In classic form, she brought about 20lbs of fresh veggies from her farmer's market. On Saturday we had a feast! Some wonderful friends came over to help us eat, and everyone had a great time.
    But there were two empty chairs (sniff, sniff).

    Manic Monday

    I have a "woman's doctor" appointment tomorrow morning and I start my new job(!) directly after. Coincidentally, the doctors office is right next to the law office. And in case you are wondering what my new office looks like here she is! Please forgive the pollen stains on my car's dirty window...
