5:30 am.

I got up at 5:30am this morning.
Because I'm used to being at work at this time in the mornings lately.
The graveyard shifts, I unfortunately have to admit, are kinda kicking my ass. Plus the teaching job makes it really hard to find time to sleep as well as prepare lectures. But I really really don't want to sound like I'm complaining at all. I'm so happy to have this teaching job. Some of the students are really getting to me though. I totally embarrassed one kid during class because he was playing with hi iPhone all the way through a video clip I was showing. GRRRR! I asked him to tell me what the video was about and he stammered and finally admitted he had no idea...little shithead. I have zero tolerance for not paying attention in my class, especially when it's only a 50 minute class. I mean, come on!

Anyway, enough about that....can you tell that my fatigue is making me a grumpus?

So the other thing that is kind of a bummer is that I haven't been putting much time into my Etsy shop as much as I'd like to. I haven't listed a new item in a couple weeks....eeeek! But, I took an R&R day today from work. After this I'm going to take the dogs to the coffee shop and then to dog beach to run around for a while. After that I'm going to run some errands and have the rest of the day to play around. Well, I do have to work on the lecture for Monday but at least I won't be at work until 5pm today.

Here are a couple pictures of my goods so you guys don't forget about me!
Have a great weekend!

Where have I been???

Wow, I didn't realize that it had been so long since I blogged. I guess I've been rather busy...and tired. I started working graveyard shifts at the hospital so I'm playing catch-up with my sleep constantly. Also, I started subbing for a class at the University, Physical Anthropology 101. The professor that I used to TA for had to take a medical leave of absence for the rest of the semester and they asked me to fill in for her. Actually, it's pretty great....awesome experience for me and hopefully it'll lead to something else for the summer or next fall.

But apart from that I'm still painting and still promoting on Etsy. This week's featured seller, I swear, could be my long lost twin. Check out her bio and shop....

Monkeys Always Look

Well I have to get back to bed days and night pretty much just consist of long naps these days for about as long as the dogs will let me sleep.
