Quick Update

Okay, I haven't posted in about a week, so I figured I'd better post on here so I don't look like a big ol' hypocrite whining about other people not updating their blogs.

Jamie has gotten to go to Boy Scout camp this week courtesy of the YMCA. I still take him over to the YMCA in the morning, then they bus him over to Boy Scouts Camp, then bus him back to the YMCA in time for me to pick him up. He's having a blast! He was all atwitter over getting to shoot bows 'n arrows, a BB gun (a big deal, as I've NEVER let him shoot anything other than a water gun), go swimming and make all sorts of cool crafts. He's already made me a multi-colored beaded key chain, and made himself a leather bracelet and a leather and beaded necklace. He also will be taking a swimming test today to see if he's allowed to swim "on the big boys' side of the pool." They won't let you over there if all you know how to do is doggy paddle, it seems. I'm glad he's having fun and getting plenty of "boy time".

Stressed out over school, as usual. I have a big 10 page term paper coming up that I haven't even started yet. Plus I have a ton of reading and assignments to do. I'm frustrated and burned out, and can't wait until I get a couple of weeks off school before the Fall semester starts again. I'm tired, very cranky, totally discouraged and feel like my brain is going to start leaking out of my ears.

Work is, well, work. I've taken on even more responsibility overseeing some of the projects directly, and the stress of that on top of my other duties have fervently wishing my boss would hire me some help. [sigh] I don't see it happening any time soon.

Okay, well, now that I'm done whining, I'll get back to work. Goodness knows there's plenty of it to be done around here.

That's okay, Jen, whine away. Get it out, rather than letting daily poison just sit inside.

Then, at the end of the day? You can WINE it away! That's always my solution...

Animal, I don't think I've told you this, but I LIKE the way you think!

Veni, Vidi, Vino!

I came, I saw, I drank wine! Wheeeee!

Running on 3 hours of sleep here. I'm a bit slap happy. Just call me "Slappy Squirrel!"
