I could get used to having regular days off again. This week I'm only working five - that's right FIVE - shifts and it's kinda nice!
I picked up my photo from the Mystic Arts Gallery on Sunday at the close of the show that it was in and was handed some paperwork by the lady at the desk about a couple more shows coming up very soon. She was very complimentary towards my photo and suggested I submit work for the upcoming shows. I'm thinking about it but just can't decide on which pictures to use. What I think of as art is definitely not what a lot of other people think of as art!
Matter of fact, when I stopped at the gate to the parking lot where the attendant collects parking fees and said I was there to "pick up my artwork" I felt rather strange saying that as I don't consider my photos to be artwork - just pictures.
Amanda is an artist - I just like to fool around with the camera.
There's some drama at work with one of my dispatch partners and her marriage that has made me again remember why I don't mind being alone. The decision to end my marriage was tough but in the end, it was definitely worth it. I wouldn't want to be walking in her shoes for love or money right now.
I would, however, love to be able to hold hands with someone again. There are times when the Queen song "Find Me Somebody to Love" plays on a continuous loop through my head but I guess that's just life.
Reading posts by Sandee's husband, Zane, makes me really wish for a good man in my life - especially as it seems he and Sarge Charlie are competing for most romantic guy on the internet! Why are all the good ones always taken??
A very special guy in my life dropped a cooler off on my backstep this morning that contained a very large, very chilled bottle of wine - a gift from he and his wife to help alleviate some of the stress I've been having lately. Guess what I'll be doing later while catching up on shows on the DVR?? Thank you, Andrew - and Bethany, too!
I need to renew my driver's license, Amanda needs to get a state-issued ID card, I need to open a bank account for her, she needs to get a meningitis shot that she's really NOT looking forward to, I need to mow the lawn, Amanda needs to get her final high school transcripts, I need to write a really large check to Montserrat, Amanda needs to think about what she's taking with her to college ... I need to get off this computer!
