I hit a brick wall last night. Not literally, but the T/D of the last few weeks at work, plus not sleeping well, had me beat. I don’t usually come home and drop dead, but last night I came home and almost immediately fell asleep. My plan was to just lie down for a minute and close my eyes — staring at a computer screen all day, something I’ve never had to do in a job before but now do to the nth degree, really kills my baby blues. So, I ended up falling asleep. Surprisingly, I did get a bit of sleep last night as well, so I’m feeling fairly refreshed. Could be that pot of coffee that created that, however.
Last night Dr. Love went (without me, as I was really snoozing) to Home Depot and bought sand. Sand, oh glorious sand, for the rock patio, so it can be finished off. We plan on laying the rest of it tonight. The next step is to buy oh-so-expensive polymer sand that goes between the cracks, then is wetted and dries into a kind of hardened cement. He also picked up the stand for my fire pit from QoB…just one step closer to starting fires and drinking margaritas right in my own backyard!
As follow-up to yesterday’s blog, Kizzer Wizzer is feeling better, I think. She is not itching and scratching and biting so much, but she still is to a greater degree than I would like. It’s been 48 hours now since I put flea/tick stuff on her, so she will be getting a bath tonight, like it or not. I am just crossing my fingers that I still have some doggy shampoo and that Dr. Love will be up to helping with that task after laying the patio.
I have really been slacking, as I’d mentioned before, about reading and commenting on blogs that I follow lately. I’ve been doing all of my blogging in the morning, and then don’t have time to read any. Then, when I get home from work, I don’t want to sit and stare at a computer, not to mention the fact that most days I’m kind of brain-dead at the end of the day and would much rather be outside on the porch, running around town, or visiting at QoB’s. I need to figure out a way to get it into my schedule, though, because I miss keeping up on how everyone is doing!
About a year ago, Big Dog recommended a movie, Broken Bridges, for me to watch, which is oh-so-rare, because it is usually the other way around. I don’t know if it was made for TV, but it has been running a lot lately on CMT and, since we have a DVR, I finally found an airing to record. It’s sitting on my DVR list, just waiting for me to watch it. I’m hoping I’ll get around to it this weekend. QoB burned me the soundtrack right after Big Dog had watched it last year, and it’s amazing.
I find this song particularly inspiring and totally “me.” LOVE IT!
Broken, Lindsey Haun from the movie Broken Bridges
