Life as I Know it

At present, I look vaguely like Helena Bonham Carter. At least, my hair does. It’s piled on top of my head haphazardly. I am wearing clothing that normally would never see the light of day. (I promise that doesn’t include ballet shoes or anything with tulle.)

I’ve forgotten how cold it gets at night, especially standing outside for varied lengths of time. I have nearly lost my voice from having to use the word no. I must’ve run a mile last evening alone.

(I should also admit that I fell asleep in a chair.)

And I haven’t written a word in days. I do, however, have a notebook that has hastily scribbled ideas. It is purple and leather.

But that’s all ok. Because his face kind of makes up for it. The puppy, that is.

As soon as he gets the idea that outside is for going to the bathroom — and inside is where he lives — life will be golden. He was raised in a barn (literally). I’ll post pictures when I’m able.

Now, will someone be kind enough to bring me another mug of coffee? Pretty please?

    I’m amused at the “clothing that would never see the light of day” line–I’m torn between visualizing an 1980’s workout clothes ensemble or 1880’s hoopskirts, ha. Please tell me it’s even more ridiculous than I’m imagining, and I’ll bring the coffee. 🙂

      Ha! I’m not wearing anything quite that awful — just the type of stuff you’d wear on laundry day: old jeans, a green eggs and ham t-shirt, and possibly the biggest hoodie known to man. Although, I have worn a hoopskirt. Twice. *grin*

      He’s a german shepherd! And I will see about a picture of my crazy hair. 🙂 Mmmm, french press. Sounds heavenly.

      Leaving was a tough decision, but it felt like it was time for a more serious blog. We’ll see how it goes. 🙂 Glad to see you hear, Brooke!
