Alien dog

Here is my Peaches at Roswell New Mexico, she is just too darned cute!

naughty me.....

I have been as good about posting on here as I was in the past. Day job is kicking my butt and I am in a program that will help me to move up in my day job. That is full of projects and I am tired.........I go into work at least one hr early every other day and with fibro, that is KILLING ME!

TIRED............very very tired. The storms here in Tucson are always making my pain 5,000 times worse than normal as well. Last night was the first night in about 4 days that I actually got to sleep in all night. Of course, goof ball Peaches woke me up but lately she is letting me sleep in until 0515, that is a good thing for her mom.

I have created a grand total of 2 I put one Etsy shop on vacation until I get a better idea of several things:

1. Business plan or at least an outline of what exactly I am going with this..
2. I feel that I need a style or design concept that is uniquely my own.
3. These are the things in jewelery that I like to play with:
a. polymer clay-which I can play with now
b. PMC, which I won't play with until I get a klin
c. Wire work, which I can play with now.
I wanna to do everything and know how to do everything but I am finding that I am getting really chaotic in not being able to create anything because I want to make everything. If that makes sense to you than you understand. I must focus like I do at my day job.

Because of the day job is literally sucking my life away, I am seriously thinking on what I can do to encourage my creativity but take it easy on the etsy site until I can figure some stuff out.

Here are some current pics with my new hair color. I have to get it cut again & the eyebrows is never ending!!! I haven't been keeping this up at all! sorry.......I actually got into the studio this weekend! I made a rather cute ring & may sell it or I may keep it, oh crap, I could have worn it today because it would totally go with what I have on! dur.....

I cleaned and cleaned & slept this weekend. Peaches usually gets me up around 0500 every day so on weekends, I try to get a bunch of naps in. Luckily, she actually let me nap for a while yesterday. I also watched Harry Potter this weekend & watched the kids grow up. Personally, the Weasley twins are quite cute! I know I am a naughty old woman!

I have lost 45 pds! Now, my next goal is 20 pds. I have signed up for my master's degree and should start school soon. I am very excited about it. Still single but that is okay. not sure if I want to date for a gets old having your heart broken!

Life stuff

Well, I have a window unit AC because my central air unit died and you can imagine trying to live without AC in 105 degrees in Tucson is INSANE! So, I am saving up pennies until I can purchase a new central air unit.

Because of the window unit, only a few rooms are cooled. One of them that is not, is my studio and actually my creative fairy bolted out before my AC died, so no creative juices have been flowing for this monkey girl.

Life is good. I am applying for a master's program which will help at day job. Peaches, the goofy doggie is doing well, she is on a "diet" so to speak because her mommy got her a bit too cuddley!

Folks are back in Florida and so far no tar or oil on their beaches. Sad situation...:(
