A day off!!

It's about time, too. I'm sore all over and I have a hitch in my getalong. I've been working my full time job, and on top of that, my friend leased a restaurant and I've been helping her get it in shape during all of my off time. It's really hard work. Especially this one. It was shut down by health inspectors about a week before Christmas and it was a real mess. Not only that, but the guy who had the lease before left angry and cut through wires, pipes, tubes....the whole place was flooded. The kitchen was so dirty and greasy it looked like it had been completely burned up in a fire. I took a lot of "before" pictures, so when I finish the "after" pictures, I'll put a few up here for comparison. It's amazing what has been accomplished so far.
I think she's planning to open in about a week or so.
It's hard working more than one job. Especially when you have a kid to take care of, too.

Last night, Zephyr was talking in her sleep. I went in her room to see if I could understand anything she was saying, and she was talking about a guy that we saw yesterday at the Half Price Bookstore in Burleson. She was saying that his pants were low and she could see his butt. I saw this guy too, but didn't say anything. I didn't know if she noticed, but I guess she did.
Come on you guys, pull your pants up! You're scaring the children!

Zephyr will be 11 in a week. That's so weird. I've kept a person alive for 11 years.

And speaking of keeping things alive, it's almost Spring! It's time to garden, and for that I am grateful.

My boyfriend is so great!

For Christmas, my boyfriend, Chris, made new shutters for my house. The old rickety plastic shutters were severely damaged in a hail storm. It looked really bad. I was going to buy new ones, but when I went to price them it turns out they're really expensive. It would have cost over $400, and that's not including installation. So Chris made some himself, painted them, and put them up. It made a world of difference, too. He also trimmed the hedges and weed-whacked a little. It looks so nice. I'm so happy with it.

Here are the before and after pictures. I tried to get him in the picture, but he wouldn't do it. He was all sweaty, haha.

Sweet little Klaus...

I've been away from my computer for so long, I cannot for the life of me remember how to post photos. I can't even remember any html. But anyway, here are a couple of pictures of Klaus.
If you click one, you will also see the other, so there is no need to come back and click the other.



Anyway, he is just the sweetest dog ever. Very licky, too. And huggy.

Where to begin.....

Wow, it's been almost a year and a half! Me and the Z have had a pretty rough time over the past two years. But things are getting much better. We are just coming out of a serious financial crisis. I don't ever want things to get that bad again.
I see LJ has changed a lot. It's cool. I wonder if I still have any of my old friends. If anyone is reading this, I hope you are doing well.

I don't really want to write about what a rough time we've had. Instead, I'll tell you about our dog, Klaus. We still have Jackie, the bunny died, and so did Busta Rhymes.
Last Feb., Zephyr and I were going to go to the park. As we were about to back out of the driveway, I caught a glimps of something in my rear-view mirror. I got out to check it out, and under my car was a tiny little baby min-pin blinking at me with big ol' eyes! I could tell he was a full breed, and was sure someone would be looking for him. He had a little spiked collar on. I kept telling Zephyr that there was no way we were keeping this dog. NO WAY. We went all over the neighborhood, to all the vets and groomers....we looked in the lost section of the paper and on CraigsList. Nothing.
Needless to say, it's almost a year later, and Klaus has made himself to home and has a very fasionable wardrobe in my closet. Haha!
I will be posting pictures soon.

In other news, Zephyr is in the 5th grade. She'll be eleven years old in a couple of months. It's unbelievable, really.

Anyway, I really miss talking to all of you on here. I hope you are all doing really well. I haven't had internet access here at home in a long time. But I do now, so I'll be on here a lot more often.

6:30 am

I woke up before my alarm today. Much better than waking up and realizing that I turned it off in my sleep. It's a good thing, too, because I work both jobs today, and I also need to go at least 45 minutes on the elliptical trainer. I haven't woke Zephyr up yet. She's going to be mad because I didn't do laundry again last night, and all that's left is skirts and dresses, which she refuses to wear because she's a little tomboy now. 
I'm very busy.

Here's a Haiku:

Sleepy third grader
with nothing to wear today
except for a dress

Well, here comes the day. I guess I better get this over with. 
Y'all have a good one.

I just love watching educational programs on TV. I was watching one the other day about when California became part of the United States. It was very interesting! All the residents gathered to vote on whether to be part of the U.S. or not. Then a bandito came and stole all of the ballots and ran off with them. If it hadn't been for a certain heroic historical figure named Zorro, who cut the bandito's pants off with his sword and took back the ballots, California would still be part of Mexico right now. All this time, I had no idea. But it's true. I saw it with my own eyes on the television box.

Hey you guys!

It's midnight. I fell asleep early tonight and now I'm awake again.

I hope everyone is doing ok.

If anyone wants to read about what a craptastic year I've had, I'll be posting it later under a friendly post. Hopefully I'll still remember how to do an LJ cut.

Be well!

Yes, more bunny pictures.

So since we've had the bunny, things have been very interesting around here. Busta and Jackie are so curious about her. I'm going to just call her a her, until I find out for sure. I'm getting tired of typing 'him/her'.
Anyway, Busta especially cannot stay away from the bunny. He has to know where she is and what she's doing at all times. Night before last, they laid in the bathroom for hours, just staring at each other. And it's a constant sniff-fest, all three of them, from room to room, just sniffing each other's butts.

We bought a very soft little bed for the bunny, and she seems to like it pretty well.

But, unfortunately, someone got a little jealous of all the attention the bunny gets. Thing is, if we bought Busta a bed, he wouldn't even look at it, much less curl up in it. And here he is, comfy cozy in the bunny bed. Check out the look he's giving her, hahaha! Silly cat.

Hey y'all!

Yeah, I've been very busy lately, so I haven't been on here in a while. I haven't had a day off from work since Thanksgiving. I get one this coming Sunday, though. I can't wait!

Also, we have a new pet! Our babysitter found her and was trying to find a home for her. She was obviously someone's pet before, because she poops in a box and is scared of the outside. She's really sweet, and so cute!

Here are pictures:

We've been trying to think of a name for her, but haven't decided on one yet.
Feel free to make suggestions!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Another great Thanksgiving, ate at my aunt's house. I love going over there, and so does Zephyr. We looked for spiders and such, but didn't find a single one. It was great, anyway. We saw most of the family, but our family is definitely dissipating, since the G died. We all saw it coming. Oh well.

Here is what I'm thankful for:

A Court TV marathon "All in the family, where murder is a family affair." Haha! It's several different shows where people have murdered their own family members.
How great is that?

I'm going to add a picture to this post in a little while, probably during the next commercial break. It's from today.

Hope everyone had a good day!

Edit: Here we go -->

This is Maggie, my aunt's dog. Every time someone came in, she jumped up on the back of the couch. It cracked me up. And there's Zephyr with her feet on the couch!

If anyone can guess how many peices of pie I ate today, you win a prize. Go ahead and guess! Cake and cookies do not count.
