And the pressure is on! Last day in Austin today and I had a lot to do.. the system is really slow making the updates difficult to do. I went into the office and I was putting things away that I didn’t want to lose while I am away. I came across this:
A confidential dossier I put together for the very first video my boss & I did
We were looking for a BIG “Confidential” stamp, but the only one I found at a store was a really tiny one. And as your girlfriend is so resourceful, she thought of enlarging an image Photoshop, editing it a bit, printing it out, cutting out the letters and pasting it on a manila folder! We didn’t actually end up using it in the video, but it still reminds my boss and me of this video and this experience. I sent a text message to my boss with the picture and he replied: “Haha! The infamous folder…the symbol of things to come. Only the privileged may open that…to see what it takes to be creative genius.” He can be so dorky sometimes!
Late at night, I gave up on the project for the night, emailed my boss with the link to the site I was working on, and then I got serious about packing. Once I finished packing my clothes, I had to kick someone out of my bag
Yes, you can come home with me!
Unfortunately for him, I ended up not using that bag. After I was very close to finished packing, I called it a day–I was tired and I have a long day ahead of me tomorrow!
With my trip home coming up so quickly, I have been preparing for it. I pulled out the suitcases, the cat carriers, the items for my sister, and cleaned out the fridge. Today, I started doing my laundry, and when I took the last load of clothes from the washer and put it in the dryer, the little one wanted to explore it.
Mr. Edwin is the space traveler!
When I unloaded the dryer, he jumped right in there
Chilin' in the dryer!
Unfortunately, the photo was a bit out of focus.. the camera was having a hard time with the moving cat plus all the shiny & reflective areas.
No washers/dryers were hurt in the process 😉
I also worked on the website I need to have done for tomorrow night. It looks like this is gonna get done, I just need to start packing!!
My day started with a trip to the doctor’s office for my physical. My throat was still really sore but it was a little better than Sunday. The doctor told me to keep doing salt water gargles and if it didn’t get better or if it got worse to call her this week. After the appointment, I went back home to work.
As my throat was so sore, I found that straws worked really well, Chloraspectic and Advil didn’t really work for me, but ice cream did 😀
Mmm for pecan ice cream!
I guess the cold of the ice cream numbed my swollen tonsil.
While at home, Dusty kept asking to go out to the balcony… after locking up Eddie in my bedroom (he’s not yet allowed to go out on his own), I let Dusty out..
He needed his daily dose of sunshine
I called my boss to ask him for Thursday off.. we ended up talking about photography for half an hour! He loves his new camera so I was trying to give him some pointers and some links to check out.. I can’t wait to get a new camera! I worked a little late.. I have a bunch of things to do for Wednesday night 😦
This morning, I woke up and my throat hurt so badly 😦 After a while, I made a trip to the grocery store and picked up some cold survival essentials:
White bread, Ritz crackers, Tropicana OJ and generic brand Chloraseptic
Boy was I exhausted after that short trip! Definitely need more rest. Since I was chilling on the couch, playing Wario on the 3DS, I figured I should update the photos on facebook… I’ve been uploading the pix here, but not on FB and everyone’s been complaining.
2 months worth of photos to upload
It was finally done.. but by that time, it was way late. I started editing photos from the last week, but it’s early bed time due to work tomorrow! Can’t believe I got sick over the weekend 😦 No sick days for me because I have a short week as it is and I’ve got so much work to do before Thursday.
This morning, I woke up with a very sore throat 😦 I thought if I rested enough, I could still make it to the crawfish boil. So I was a bit lazy and tried to get some rest. Luckily, I had a little care taker by my side.
Cutie pie ❤
As I was saving up my energy, I decided to make use of the wonderful gift I got 😀
Wario.. yeah yeah yeah!!!
In the end, I decided not to go because it hurt to talk… Hopefully tomorrow, I’ll feel better!
This morning, the little brave kitty wanted extra cuddles.. he wanted to make sure I still loved him after his attempt to run away!
Later on, I inspected him for injuries.. he seemed fine but I wanted to make sure he was ok.
One pad was a little red and there was some blood surrounding it
Hopefully that will heal rather quickly! But that was pretty good for having gotten down from the 3rd story balcony to the ground (most likely via the roof to the side of the balcony).
After I dropped off your packages, I went to meet up with some folks over at Weirdo’s… where we enjoyed some root beer floats made by JV while hanging out in the shade. It was a hot one!! Much later on, I went to the restroom and on my way there, I saw 2 dogs going towards a small dog. I heard the dog yelp and then I realized it was Roxy and TG! Someone had to hold the dogs back because they really wanted to get in Roxy’s face. She made it out okay… a little shook up but not hurt. For the rest of the night, she was pretty sad..
She just wants people and doggies to like her!
And now for the obligatory people shots 😀
Goin down.. EE, WT & AG
I really thought my tan had faded enough.. I guess not! AB & TG
Tomorrow, I’m going to bake some of the Lemon Ricotta cookies I sent you for the Crawfish Boil at AG & MV’s!
Today, I went to my first kickball game since we won the championship last summer. It’d been a while and it honestly felt like no time had gone by.. except there were different people on the team and the colour was quite different. The Pitches lost but fun was still had on the sidelines.
WT molesting his water bottle.. AG's face is PRICELESS
The clouds looked really fake to me that afternoon…
It looked as though they were painted on!
After the game, I hung around for a bit then I went home.. I had more baking to do! It was a nice evening so I had the balcony door open. I was having a bad night.. the cake balls weren’t turning out well and then Eddie went missing. Yup.. he finally escaped and ended up downstairs in some bushes in the back of the building. So glad I found him and I’m sure he was glad to be home too 🙂
Gotta tighten up that security on the balcony again…
