Life can be cruel.

Did I mention that the past week my parents have been in Australia? Yeah, and I drove them to the airport earlyyyy in the morning.

Oh, and you should also know that my sister is in Hawaii. On vacation. For practically nothing. Oh, and I had to drive her to the airport too. Funny how that works.

And I'm home. Alone. In charge of the dogs, dutifully picking up their "business" after them everyday. 

And cleaning the house. 

And going to school.

And tutoring.

And working (did I mention that? I got a job. Khol's).

And I generally think of myself as a busy person when I have hours of time to fill in by myself. So adding in a job + random tutoring (But it pays so much better than retail! and more fun!) makes me stressed out, even if I am not actually that busy. Especially compared to some of you guys. Reading your schedules makes me want to go on vacation. 

Maybe a friend will have pity on me and have me over for thanksgiving? My aunt did, but I am sure I have to work on black friday and can't drive all the way to her house.

Thanks for reading my bitter betty-ness. On the bright side, I've overcome my fear of picking up dog poo. *Except* for those couple of times I kept gagging and nearly barfed. 

She thinks she is cute or something.

Mirror, Mirror

Likey? I dug it out of a bin at Goodwill.  Originally I thought the color was a bit too bright of a gold for me, but I couldn't settle on a color. So I think I'll leave it as is. Or if you have a suggestion, let me know!

I got this frame at Goodwill awhile back too. It was empty, and so I made a blackboard from blackboard paint. Sorry it's backwards. I took the picture with my computer. Cause I'm lazy like that.

Oh, and when I was in france I got this tapestry. I like it. I got two smaller ones too, but I'll show them when I get them up. I'm not sure how I want to get these up though. I figured that I'll put them in frames so they can hang without putting holes in them, like a lot of other methods. But if you guys have any ideas, I'm definitely up to it!
