The Dog Blogs

 I kinda suck at actually maintaining a blog... but it looks like the dog doesn't. Check out his guest blog:

 Two Fur-Peeps and A Writer: Sir Poops and Hair Ball: Napping on a Book Tour

 In my defence, I've been a bit busy. Check out the link to see with what. ;)

A smallish update

It's been a madhouse here, but amidst the finals, holiday celebrations, and feet of snow, this girl managed a clean sweep on her last semester of college: straight As, with one class being over 100% (not that it really matters, but still nice that I knocked that class out of the ballpark). It feels crazy that I'm finally done, and yet it seems like it took so long to get here. I'm also immensely grateful that I got sick right after finals/holidays; I had a backlogged DVR and a tea stash ready to go!

So, what am I up to now that I'm not attending classes?

Well, like the rest of the state/country, I haven't been up to much the last week or so except trying to stay inside and making excessive amounts of snow-cream. Funny, they don't really do that in Northeast Indiana, and Mark said several people at his work tried it after he talked about it. You're welcome, Hoosiers.

Since it's so warm - which has escalated from 'above zero' to 'above freezing' and is now in the 40s - we took the dog for about a mile walk in the state park. 
He had lots of fun sniffing at bunny tracks, and we got some much-needed exercise.

If you're a college student and just recovered from the haze of midterms, portfolios, and projects due, you know what I mean. If you're not, it looked something like this:

...and will continue looking like it at every deadline point.

Busy busy! Test posting from my phone

It's been a busy week at the hunter household. Mark spoke at the Peabody library of Whitley county, and I answered questions. That was the fun part - we used the other vacation days to start winterizing the house, run errands, do writing work... And catch up on some of our shows on the DVR of course. It's Walking Dead time again, people!

As Mondays go, I've had worse.

I woke up with pain today, but I was able to get through the day with minimal trouble. I did at one point say, "I reallllllyyyy should have stayed home," but I made it. I somehow passed it off as being simply tired, because everything that I was doing to alleviate the pain (or otherwise just be a lump) ended up making me want to nap. Either way, I muddled through class by being distracted and attentive to our workshop, and only ended up being minorly grouchy about one of the pieces we 'shopped that didn't look like it had even been proofread before being turned in.

After some good and healthy food and taking Bae on a W-A-L-K, I feel quite a bit better. Not awesome, but not bad. I definitely ran into some people having a far worse case of the Mondays.

Ball python video

This is a video of my ball, Lucius, feeding. I made it to test out my new camera and uploaded it in case anyone is curious (I assume some people are, since there's tons of similar videos on YouTube).

Click the cut to view (hidden for those who don't want to see).

Warning: Rat death. It's the circle of life. Mufasa told me, and he can't be wrong.
