me to Kent: I just read that Mt. St. Helens is rumbling again. I guess that's really our only major volcano to worry about here on the mainland. I'm glad we live here instead of Hawaii.

Kent: .... you mean other than Mt. Rainer?

Me: I didn't even know that was a volcano.

Kent:.... or the supervolcano that makes up the Yellowstone crater that could kill the whole world?

Me:..... oh yeah.

just wanted to say 'thanks' to everyone who wrote this morning! I have truly appreciated listening to the varying opinions, and I feel like it has helped me be a little more aware of the controversy surrounding the ruling, and why I should care about it.

You guys are great!

Well... We arrived in FC last night around 10:30pm only to discover that Kent packed the car with everything (all camera gear! Most important!) BUT my suitcase....
Par for the course this week.
In better news, I slept in until 7:30am and feel glorious this morning.

So much busy. Yesterday was another day of boss drama... It always ends up resolving, but I hate having to do the drama dance all the time. It's so not me.

We've been working 10-12 hours every day this week, including Sat and 5 hours Sunday. Though we did manage to visit some friends in Provo and hike a little Sunday.

Trying to get home in enough time to edit wedding, work on side work, or cook dinner at night, and have been failing. House is messy, no groceries... I think this is just par for the course when we both work so much!

I think the computer is done for. I just wish I hadn't spent a week re-installing stuff to find that out, dammit

I am currently trying to get a fresh backup made before it goes to the computer hospital. :/

And dammit, it was mid-sentence during my writing, so I lost at least 1000 words. BUT I took an iPhone picture if the screen right before it blue screened, so at least I can re type some if it from the picture.

I could talk about how much pee water I stood in today, but instead,

I'm making a potato/ham/cheddar/tomato frittata, and a made up fruit dessert pizza thingy with my love.

Happy Valentine's Day, y'all. Love to my flist too =)

I have never written this much on a single project in my whole life. I just passed 100,000 words (which is about 30% through "book 2"). Despite the trouble with this novel(s?) not really fitting into any marketable category, I am having fun writing the tale. I suppose that's all that's important, right? Hoorah for a morning off to write! (PS Damn facebook, I need to block it, I wasted an hour on there this morning!). I've been listening to the Skyrim soundtrack while I write, and it's working really well for me. Thank you, grooveshark.

Have some cute pictures of goats to make YOUR Sunday better! They are so ridiculous. They follow Kent around better than our dog does.

I do need to go do some "real" work now... website, grocery shopping, tax stuff, weekly report for the boss. But! OH HOW I LOVE MY DAY OFF. I need the restoration time. It makes me feel like I could actually re-conquer winter tomorrow. With my new snow boots when they arrive. They're bright red... did I mention that part? I luff them already.

Oh for crying out loud, Mac has a chunk of his lip missing this morning. The vet is en route to look at stitching it.

I think it was a bite from a neighboring pasture horse, over the fence, because I can find zero evidence of him slicing it in his pen.

Seriously, horse, this is not how I want to spend my Saturday.
