I had time to kill, it's dead and buried.

I've been meaning to write for the past few days, and never getting 'a round tuit' as my mom would say...

(tuit)<---oh, there it is.

This is so how I feel, like every day. Bill also gives no effs.
I almost hopped on and ranted the other night after they extended our work hours. But as it turns out, I get home pretty close to the same time. With that being said, I am now home for less than 10 hours a day... factor in the fact that I need 7-8 hours of sleep not to feel like I got hit by a truck in my sleep, and I basically have time to eat and shower and then pass out. YAY. /sarcasm I am maximizing my [totally legitimate!] time away from work; on Thursday I went to a job fair and actually spoke with some neato companies about promising jobs that involve my amazing ability to not electrocute myself. One interview is already pending.

...he doesn't really give hi-fives, either.
I did take a stay-cation last week... it was a double-edged sword. I greatly needed it, however, it spoiled the crap out of me and now I am more sarcastic, more bitter, and even less motivated--if that's even possible. It made me really appreciate free time, and also made me notice how much of it I am lacking. I spent a whole day cleaning at my own pace. I got massive kitty cuddles. AAAAAAaaaand.... I got quite a bit of random art done.

This one... I haven't finished yet. I did put a couple more layers of stuff on it, and I did scrape the wax back off... but then I got really distracted trying to find good quotes to use and haven't gotten any further since. I also spent a good hunk of money at [craft chain store] on alphabet stamps, paper, ink, scrapbook stuff, and moar paints. But not more candles for some reason. Ooooh, side note, I wonder what would happen if I started mixing water and wax?

 This one, I finished actually quite a while ago, but I couldn't post it because it was going to be a gift for Mow and Mow [did I do that right? is that how that works?]. They did in fact love it. The quote was kind of a nod back to their totally awesome Firefly-themed wedding. This one made me kind of realize that I like working with whole words a little bit more than individual letters. It makes everything easy to read. The funny looking white spots are actually silver. And yes, yes those are my toesies.

Side note, I have a couple more canvases that have a couple layers of paint on them, but I've been so busy that I haven't been able to get much time with them. The fun part is that they're all on my porch, on my art-desk-to-be, with bottles and cans of paint. So sometimes when I leave home, especially if I'm feeling frustrated or quirky, I will just spray stuff. So far, so good.
