July Personal Update: I got my dog a special toy!

Long time, no talk readers!  Thank you for bearing with me on last week's lack of posting.  I've been absolutely exhausted lately and desperately needed to sleep around work and circle events.  I went in for a doctor's visit and blood work on Friday, so hopefully I can resolve what's making me so darn tired all the time!  Until then, posting may be somewhat sporadic.  I'll try to backlog articles when I have the energy.  Working a full time job and managing the circle comes first.  I appreciate that my readers understand this and give me the time I need when I flare up!

Anyways, onward to the fun stuff.


I wish I had more photos from work to post than I do.  The lack of energy means I mostly go in and do my job, forgetting to take photos in the process.  That being said, things on the work front have been busy as usual.  I recently received a request for a lengthy gig proposal, so put out some good thoughts to the universe for me!  It could provide a steady income throughout 2018.  I've also been moved to primary contact for a local agency, which is helping to keep me extra busy this year.  Overall, lots of exciting stuff ahead!


We're still waiting on our insurance to approve one final part of the house renovations but that's it!  Hopefully within the next month, we'll get everything scheduled and under way.  Working with insurance takes so much time but it's going to be so worth it.  The circlemates joke that they probably won't recognize the house the first time after everything's complete - and they're probably right.  I can't wait to show you guys!

In the meantime, here's another completed project from inside the house this past month:


I have the most adorable video story for you guys.  I want to apologize in advance for the way the compression distorts my ridiculous amounts of laughing.

Most of the circle went to Build-a-Bear for Phaedra's birthday party.  I typically don't get anything when we go because I'm not particularly in love with stuffed animals and my dog generally ends up with any that are given to me.  Which then gave me an idea.  I went for the cheapest option they had to give my dog a special treat he clearly enjoyed!  You know, as ridiculous as it was standing the store creating a bear for my dog, the reaction was so absolutely worth it.  If I had to go back, I'd absolutely do it again.

And that about sums it up!  Enjoy!


  1. Oh my gosh, Artie in the cat hut is killing meeee ��

    1. I honestly didn't think he'd use it! I'm shocked. He usually detests small spaces but I think Apollo introduced him to how comfy it is, lol. Thank you!
