Busy day


Holy shit I've been busy today! I woke up at 5:30, of course, and I couldn't go back to sleep because I kept thinking about all the things I had to do. So I got up and started my day.
I was at work by 6:40. I had to go in on Saturday because I offered to go in and do some touch-up painting in the office. So, I did that. I got done around 8-8:15 or so. Then I went to the gym on the way home. After that I stopped at the grocery store to pick up a few things because some friends are coming over to watch Avatar tonight.
Then, when I got home I had to work on the burning I'm doing for someone (obviously the picture is that burning). I still have a long way to go, but I'll get there. So, I worked with it until my arm started bothering me, then I did some laundry, then I vacuumed, then I dusted a bit, then I ran to the apartment office to get a new air filter, then I practiced the guitar.
Whew!
I just have to try and not do anything for the rest of the day until my friends get here or I'll fall asleep during the movie.
I'm just the kind of person who feels he has to be doing something, whatever it is. In some ways that's good, but it is tiring.
Other than that, not much is happening. Steve and I are planning a trip to Santa Fe the last week in June. We're gonna drive up. I can't wait.
I guess that's it for now.

Amazing Earth


The volcano that's erupting in Iceland is messing up a lot of people's air travel and causing headaches for everyone. But if you take away all the trouble it's causing, and just take it for what it is: an amazing natural phenomenon, it's incredible. This is something that the Earth is doing and has been doing all over the work since the beginning of time. The planet knows what it's doing. There's a reason it's doing it. And on top of it all, it's actually really pretty. Sure it may spew toxins into the atmosphere, but again, it's doing it for a reason. They say that this may lower the Earth's temperature for a while because of the ash cloud. Perhaps that's why it's doing it. I'm not saying that the Earth has a brain and consciously knows when to do things, but nature does pretty well on its own without us.
So, as long as you're not one of those poor suckers trying to travel, just sit back and enjoy the show.
Be nice to each other.

My ass hurts!


Yikes! I had a heavy leg workout yesterday and this morning I woke up, got out of bed and almost fell over. My legs and ass are killing me! (Did you think I meant something else? Dirty).
I feel pretty good this morning, aside from my paralyzed legs. I woke up earlier than I really wanted, but that's okay. I've already had breakfast, updated Facebook and now I'm working on this blog entry and it's only 6:24. Next I'll take Buster out and then hop in the shower and head off to the gym for some chest and back.
You know yesterday they announced the President Obama passed and action ordering hospitals to allow the patient to say who visits them. This was done for the same sex couples, of course. It was a really cool move by him. I never understood that rule by hospitals anyway. Who the hell are they to say who visits who? If I (God forbid) end up in the hospital for some reason, they don't know me. Who the fuck are they to say who can visit me? I hate the thought of Steve ever being in there and me not being able to get into this room. Holy shit, I would cause such a scene.
They kept talking about that lesbian who's partner, of I don't know how many years, ended up suddenly in the hospital and she was denied entry to her room and her partner died of a brain aneurysm. That is such a horrible story, I don't know what I would do.
Anyway, thanks Mr. President (I wonder if he'll read this entry titled My ass hurts).
Today, as long as the check gets here, I should be starting a new burning. It's of a Chesapeake Bay retriever. I'm doing if for someone. It should be interesting. I'm just worried about the curls in the coat. But we'll see how it goes.
Okay, that's it for now.
Be nice to each other.

Monday sucks

Ugh! I just can't handle Mondays! No matter how much I try to make it a good day, something happens to make it shitty. I think I'm seriously having a hard time dealing with work knowing I'm on my four-year countdown. Plus, it doesn't help that my freaking boss can't help but to think of new things for us to do and then assign someone (usually me) to do it.
Then, after a bad day, I have to fight the traffic on the way home. On top of that, I had to stop at HEB to pick up four items. It was like everyone and their mother was picking up something like there was a hurricane headed our way. Damn, I can't wait to get to Santa Fe. A smaller town! Please! Man, what would be really great would be that we hit the lottery and we could buy a house somewhere in the mountains away from everyone.
But tomorrow's another day, right? Tuesdays always have to be better than Mondays! Isn't that a law or something?

Boring day


I have not done anything all day. Well, that's not entirely true. I have fucked around on the computer all day trying to get Yahoo messenger to work. And besides that I did manage to go to the gym. Albeit I went to the gym at the apartments because I didn't feel like driving anywhere. And I did manage a load of laundry that has finally made it's way into the dryer after 8 hours. But other than that, nada. I didn't even practice the guitar like I was supposed to. I didn't practice yesterday either because I was finishing that lion.
But, I told my myself I would take it easy today and that's what I did. But I feel so guilty. I'm the type of guy that has to do something or I feel lazy. I feel like I've done something wrong. As I do now. But whatever.
Anyway, it was sad this morning to hear that Dixie Carter died. I loved her on Designing Women. I'm sure that's where most people will remember her from. She was 70. It didn't say what she died from, though. I feel badly for her husband. I couldn't imagine losing the one you love. It's my biggest fear. And like Edward Cullen, I have a plan for if it ever happens. As pathetic as that may sound.
Anyway, I hope whoever's reading this has a great week starting tomorrow.
Be nice to each other.

Lazy Lion

I finished! This one took me forever, but I finally finished! Hope you like it.

Saturday morning


It's Saturday morning. It's pretty early, of course. I'm sitting here waiting for Steve to wake up and head to an early meeting. Which sucks because he worked last night and has to get up early and then work again tonight. WHERE IS OUR LOTTERY???
It's already April 10th. I am hoping that the year flies by as with the following three. I'm trying hard no to constantly think about retiring and moving to Santa Fe, but it's almost impossible. It seems like every day there's something at work that irritates me. I don't know if I'm just getting grouchy as I get older or if I'm just psychologically done with it all and ready to move on.
I'm still working on the lion burning. It's been a killer so far, but I think it will be worth it in the end. I believe this one will be the most photo realistic one I've done. And that's what I've been striving for. I hope it works out.
Anyway, other than that, there hasn't been a whole lot of stuff going on. I'll try to look up some exciting world events to talk about the next time. Most of the shit that's happening is too depressing to talk about this early.
Well, be nice to each other.

Saturday


How's that for a title? I couldn't think of anything quirky right now. I'm up early on a Saturday morning (as usual). I've had breakfast, taken Buster out, had some coffee, updated my Facebook page, and now I'm just waiting to leave for the gym. But before I do, I'm trying to be good about posting so I thought I would take this time to do that.
Later Steve and I are going to see Clash of the Titans. We're pretty excited about it. The original was/is a classic. But now to look at it seems so cheesy. But for its time, was pretty cool.
I don't have much going on with my writing these days, just trying to sell books. I haven't written anything new. My wood burning has been taking up most of my time. I'm still working on the lion and probably will be for the next week or two. I will surely post it here when it's done.
Anyway, I have to go pump iron and make my body beautiful (chuckle).
Be nice to each other.
