Bones and Funnel Clouds
What a day. Yesterday it was all nice and warm and everyone was happy. Today, not so much. I woke up with a headache and called work to tell them I would be late. I got there at 10am. (I start at 6:30am). I always get headaches when the weather can't make up its mind - it is 20 degrees cooler today than yesterday. Then, there was a thunder and lightning storm with claps of thunder so loud I dove under my desk. The building I work in is mostly glass, so it freaks me out. (You should have seen me in 2001 when we had a 6.+ earthquake.) Driving home...my mom calls my cell phone. I can't find my frigging phone. I'm throwing shit all over my car while driving trying to find my phone because I absolutely can't stand not answering a ringing phone - or at least checking the caller ID. She tells me to watch out for lightning bolts and funnel clouds. Apparently, the news said it is wreaking havoc on the freeway drivers. Super, mom. Now I'm worried about the dogs. I decided to stop and get them some bones to chew on in case they are scared. Now my house smells like hooves. Yum.

Puppies and Sunshine
Good Morning all...here I sit at my desk eating a chonga bagel and drinking an iced mocha. No low-carbs here! OK, so my diet sucks right now. I spent the whole day yesterday CLEANING. I am more sore from that, than from my workout. Getting on my hands and knees and scrubbing just kicks my ass. The dogs are even exhausted from following me back and forth - there's nothing like having little doggie tongues licking your toes when you are scrubbing the bathroom floor. I also gave them both a bath, which is an event in and of itself. I end up wetter than the dogs, and the amount of hair that gets all over the bathroom could make a whole new dog. (hence the bathroom cleaning...) They are serious pains-in-the-ass. But at least they smell good now!!!! Hey, let's all congratulate Nichole on her new puppy Kipper!!!! May she have all the best puppy breath!!

Its going to be 80 degrees here today, and I'm just not ready. I like sunshine, don't get me wrong, but I have no summer clothes and I am pasty-white. I could blind small children and animals with my whiteness. Guess I better get on that, huh?

Hangin' Around
I really had to think about my last picture post. What in the holy hell was Louie doing? I went into the bedroom and found that he somehow got tangled up in the hanger I use for my "restaurant uniform" that had fallen to the ground. It made more sense at that point because I usually spill oogobs of pasta sauce on myself while working. Louie is a nutjob when it comes to human-food. He will do anything. I have caught him strattling the recliner and the end table trying to get to a candy wrapper. Anyway, I am figuring that he was going for the lick-mama's-uniform routine and somehow managed to get stuck in the hanger. Then, when he couldn't figure out how to get out of it, and all the pasta sauce on my shirt had been consumed, he decided he was still hungry and mosied on down to his food bowl. It was at that point that I saw him. Luckily, I had my camera sitting out. Do my dogs get into the trash? No. Do my dogs chew on slippers? No. Do my dogs get tangled up in hangers? Yes! Never a dull moment with Cairn terriers...

Dream Interpretation
So here's part of my dream interpretation for last night.....hmmmmm.....maybe I'm spending too much time on the internet??
So, last week I was seconds away from being fired for my attitude, and then last night I'm getting begged to stay. The restaurant biz is psycho. I guess the best plan of action is be your confident self, be ethical, and don't take any shit from anyone. At some point they will respect you - usually. My life is one of these "I have no idea what is going to happen from one moment to the next" kind of lives.

Speaking of which, Louie peed on the bed again. That damn dog. Every now and then we have these frigging dominance issues. Its maddening. Ooohh - I gotta go - work is getting busy...I'll be back....

Louie no like swimming

There is absolutely nothing exciting going on. The best I can do is: I am looking for a new part-time restaurant job because my new bosses are irritating me. It is not good to irritate CRAZYDOGMAMA. I have been working, then going home and going straight to bed. I keep having these crazy dreams that I can remember in freaky detail. They haunt me all day long. What does THIS mean? Lou and Mags have been pretty lazy the last few days - they aren't exciting either. Well, I guess boring is better than bad, huh? As soon as something remotely interesting happens...I'll let you know.

Gotta tell ya...
That song "Wicked Game" by Chris Isaak just makes me want to take all my clothes off and dance around my office...probably not a good idea, though.
The Future's so bright....I gotta wear shades
Well, not really, but it has been unusually warm here in ol' Sultan. Apparently it was 90 degrees on Easter! Wow! We don't usually get above 70 in April. Took some more pics. Extreme silliness here. I broke out the shades - and snapped a shot of the view from my driveway. I don't feel like working today, so I'm playing with my blog. I'm going to get so fired some day....

OK, just SHUT UP about the BAD makeup job on my forehead. Leave me alone.

Its Monday, AGAIN.
Well, after a whirlwind week, Monday is rearing its ugly head at me. Hopefully, with only working two shifts at the restaurant this week, I will be able to relax a bit. I also need to get back to the gym and clean up my eating. We did eggs benedict (surprise!) and mimosas for Easter brunch - thanks Yogagirl for the idea! I cooked a ham on Saturday afternoon with scalloped potatoes, asparagus and this really good italian bread from Costco. I had french silk chocolate pie and Easter candy afterward. I ate an entire plate of tortellini in a tomato cream sauce Saturday night. Can you say HOLY CRAP? I ate like a hell-cow! (Thanks Skwigg for that term) Oh, and let's not forget all the oreos I ate on Friday...yikes. I am feeling a little bloated this morning...but I do have 3 dozen brightly-colored hard-boiled eggs to consume. I figure if I take the yokes out of every other one, I'll be set for healthy snacks for awhile.

I made my step son watch the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake this weekend. (I make everyone watch it) I know it is not what you would call a good "Easter" movie, but oh well. He liked it, but he did say "oh, SICK!" a lot. heehee.

The weather was fabulous this weekend - I did a little picture-taking. Here is a tree blooming in my front yard. Can you find the bee?

I finally got some sleep last night. It was only 6 hours, but that is 6 hours more than I got the night before. I look like death warmed-over. When my alarm went off this morning, the dogs didn't even move. (If mama doesn't sleep, dogs don't sleep) When I got up to pee, Louie lifted his head up (with all of his fur mashed on one side of his head...cute!) and looked at me like "have fun at work, I'm going back to sleep"...and *thud*...down went the little fuzzy head. I took a shower and came into the bedroom to get dressed where the dogs were STILL on the bed. At that point I made them get up and go potty.

The restaurant nightmare is still looming, but last night was fairly mellow. I guess I'm just going to wait and see what happens - I'm in no mood to look for another job, and you never know, it might turn out OK. I am probably going to cut my shifts down from four a week, to two a week. It is possible that will make me more gooder.

Oh, gotta go...time to take a Vivarin...

Not doing so good
Last week sucked. Job security is over with my second job. I am a little stress ball right now because I depend on my second income. Needless to say I'm not eating well, either. In fact, I'm hardly eating at all. This is NOT good. I'm going to royally screw up my metabolism if I'm not careful.

I called in mentally ill today from my office job. Crazydogmama is having panic attacks. My day job is not secure either - money is tight there and I'm worried about layoffs.

OK, enough of the drama - I'm putting up some puppy pictures of Louie just for fun. Let's all wish Yogagirl happy puppy shopping!
