It's not just Bug, though. (Because really, he's three, and this shall pass. I know.) I'm just ..... irritable with many things. My car smells like something died in it and I don't know what (all three cats are accounted for.) I can't keep up with the laundry to save my soul. The puppy bit the kitty and now his tail is broke. I still have a Christmas gift on my dining table that I didn't even SEND. I wasted two hours of my life last night on TM2 (just get your bleeping GED already, Chelsea!) My internet keeps blinking out on me. Every picture I take this week has blurry eyes. I haven't backed up my iPhoto in, um, forever and that sometimes keeps me up at night. My Blurb book isn't working right. You know the weekly iPhone photo week in review I've painstakingly dedicated myself to week after week? That I even upgraded to the $5/month Picnik to make happen? Well, it's not transferring into the book well, because the pictures are SQUARE and BLURBFORBID we have a format for that, so as of now I've got a book with one stupid (title) page done because the rest of it is frustrating me too much to even look at it. As I told a friend complaining about her own Blurb struggles, at this point, I'm putting my faith in a magic Blurb fairy constructing my book perfectly and sending it my way when it's done. Perfectly.
Ahem. Deep breath.
I want my villa back. With a nanny, this time.
Aren't you glad I came out of hiding for this (Aunt Tammy? Are you? Ha! Love you for caring.)
I'll end this on a better note. Upon the recommendation of my friend Katie (who, fortunately for her, is on the short list of people/things that have NOT made my shitlist this week, quite the opposite really) I joined a Project 2012 this year. This one here. Because, obvi, so much free time on my hands. But no, really, I wanted to do this for me. I love playing with my camera and want to get better. Not because I want to be a fancypants photog or anything, but because I'd like to one day have at least half of the eyeballs in my pictures be in focus. Andsuch. So anyway, I decided to combine the project's monthly inspiration challenge with the Project 52, and come toddler hell or high water, I'm making it happen. January's word is "fresh", so my personal goal is one picture each week illustrating "fresh." Weeks one and two. Both of Vivi, because she's not three.
