|07:41 pm - favor?|
don't know if anyone even reads this anymore, but if you do, i need a favor from someone. Who wants to pick me up from the dayton airport at 10:30 at night on sept. 4? that's a tuesday if that makes a difference to anyone who may voluteer... my parents will do it if they have to, but i'd rather not keep them up late and i'd prefer the company of a friend. let me know if there are any takers.

so i had the day off today... ben and i spent the day starting to build my treehouse. sounds like fun? well, it kind of was and should have been, but the day was dampered by the following: i got stung by a buckmoth, ben fell out of the tree into a ladder, and i managed to get 4"X4" dropped on my shoulder. i am beat. now for beer and food!

|08:37 pm - happiness or meaning?|
do you believe that you can have both? it seems sometimes you have to choose one or the other... which is more important? would you rather lead a life of happiness or a life of meaning?

|06:11 am - light at the end of the tunnel...|
it's pretty amazing that i have been working nights, have spent quite a few hours bored, yet i still never update this thing. i play free cell, peruse ebay for pez dispensers that i absolutely don't need but when i find certain ones i feel i must have them... yeah, i know - geek.
anywho, this is my near 90th hour of overtime so far this year. it's my 4th week (i think, maybe i'm going into five now, it's hard to keep track...) of working straight with no days off. it's 24 days/nights of working anywhere from 10-13 hours a night, by myself, with no one to talk to except about 200 cats. i'm officially that crazy cat person, yet i don't even own a cat. yet it might (maybe hopefully i'm praying) be my last night by myself. the kitten (reason i'm at work all night) is getting bigger and might be strong enough to take home in a couple days. tomorrow night and the next night i'll still be here, but i've gone so loopy that they're sending me in company to work with me. i'll let people know more about the kitten if they want, but it's one of those "big deal" kittens, so i'm not going to write a whole lot about him before we're certain he'll make it and there's press releases and all that jazz.
so, i think that's it for me updating actually. that has been my whole life since new year's. oh, and all that football stuff, but we're not going to bring that up right now. it still hurts. we're awful proud to make it that far, but when you make it that far you start wanting it all and thinking it could happen...
oh, we're heading out of town for about a week soon too. much much needed break. going to georgia to pick up ben's new car (he got a brand new freakin miada for xmas/late gradution/his jeep sucks) and then driving down to tampa to visit some friends. and then after that is... MARDI GRAS!! so, i think the spare bedroom is already booked (will claimed it at thanksgiving) but we still do have some space (much more than previous years) if people want to make reservations...
yeah. that's it. gonna go feed the kitten again, then go home and go to bed.

well, it's been almost forever again.
we're in our new house. OUR HOUSE! we own it. i can do anything i want to it, which means i have a long list of things i'd like to do but won't be able to right away. but it makes me happy that i can do them and not worry about a landlord or anything. i'm the landlord now, ha. the yard and the tree and the tree swing are wonderful.
we have acquired a couple other things for the said house as well, among them being a dart board and pool (not to be used at the same time). we got one of those semi-inflatable pools, that's kind of like an adult sized kiddie pool. set it up a couple nights ago and spent most of the day yesterday in it. i see lots of sitting in the pool drinking on days off in the future.
graham's coming down to visit us, care of his work at the beginning of august. liz is coming down mid-auagust. can't wait to see you guys and show off the new place.
i had a rough week at work a little bit back. one of my fishing cats developed a huge adrenal gland tumor, had a hole in her stomach, and didn't pull through after hours of surgery. the same day, one of the domeestic cats died from freaking chokin on her own food. the down side of working with animals is that they are going to die, and i know that and am prepared for it, it was just kind of a lot to happen in one day.
i don't really have any news that could be considered ugly, so here's a picture of poboy:
