I got soul but I'm not a soldier

For a lack of a better title, now you know what I am listening to. My office has been so empty lately, that I decided to ditch the earphones and just turn up the speakers. Woo. I love it. However, when our box salesman came in I got a little nervous and embarrassed because I was listening to "Why Me Lord?" by Johnny Cash and he asked if I was in a sad mood today. Haha!

So, Mike just called to let me know that the wireless high speed Internet is installed and working. Yahooo! We've been mooching free Internet access from the University of Utah for the last four years or so, and suddenly we were shut off. What the? Okay, it wasn't sudden and we figured it was bound to happen. You see, the U is so nice and lets all enrolled students have access to their network for F.R.E.E. It is dial-up and it is always extra slow because I am sure there are quite a few kids using it, but it was FREE. So, the key to getting access to the free Internet is to be enrolled in school. Whelp, that disqualifies us right there on account of I graduated December 2003 and Mike graduated December 2005. We've just sort of been waiting for it to happen. One day while trying to log in, I got the "You no longer have access to this network." Oh well. It was good while it lasted, plus we got an extra year out of it. I am sure we'll eventually adjust to our new $40/month bill. Eek.

I am excited, though. I won't have to do all of my uploading of piccies from work (I'm sure my boss will be stoked about that, too) and I can sit and read your beautiful blogs at home in the wee hours of the morning (between the gym and work when all I can hear is snoring) while eating breakfast. I wake up at 5:05 am every day so I can meet Genell at the gym. I've been doing this for the past 2 years and I love it - although I love it more during the summer than winter. My favorite time of day is when the workout is over, I am dressed and showered and I can sit and eat my breakfast with towel around my head. It is about 7:20 am.

Although I am used to my schedule, yesterday I was soooooooooo tired. I had to leave work about 3:45 pm because I was literally dosing off while trying to format Supplement Facts labels. It just wasn't working. I went home and hurried to clean up Cohen's train set and then turned on HGTV and promptly fell asleep on the couch. I woke up just after 6:00 pm and wondered if it was morning. I then put dinner in (one of my 30 premade meals - veggie lasagna) and fell back asleep watching Design on a Dime. Mike and Cohen rolled in just after 7:00 just as the oven timer went off. We ate and then put together puzzles then put Cohen to bed. I kept falling asleep while Mike was reading. Mike had to wake me up to put me to bed and it was only 9:00 pm. Sheesh. The alarm went off at 5:05 am this morning and I was all better and ready to go. I was just so tired.

I think it is weird that I didn't make anything yesterday. A day without crafting seems so unfulfilling. However, obviously, I needed the sleep. But I did make this cute little guy on Monday night.

It is a surprise for Lori. She doesn't know it is coming (unless I just blew it). She's had quite a few past weeks. First her grandfather passed away and then she fell down the stairs and broke her foot the day after her husband went out of town for the week. Poor thing. The picture doesn't do this little man justice. He is brown and pink with a yellow beak and eyes. If you look closely, you can see my reflection in the (his) right eye. I love his crazy eyes. I got the idea from browsing your blogs, adding a cute pic to my wists, and then having Ginny make me one for the owl swap. I guess he could be a pincushion if he wasn't so cute.

I think I've yakked on long enough, even though I have so much more to say. Tomorrow I'll post from home now that I don't have to wait 20 minutes for one picture to upload to flickr. YEAH, again!!
