So much to say...

So few functioning brain cells left. *sigh* well here goes....

Cats: We caught the last one the other night. So I now have 4 feral kittens living in my garage. Its getting cold out there and I feel horrible keeping them in the unheated garage. They would need to be spayed/neutered (to prevent new litters and spraying) and flea dipped before I could even think of bringing them in. As well as checked for disease that could carry to my girls. If all was well then they could be in the studio until we figure out what to do with them. Though, (shudder) I am seriously beginning to consider starting my life long dream of being the crazy cat lady, but this is a lot sooner than I had planned.

The show: I've done 27.5 hours on it in the last 3 days. I'm very nearly done. I have a great story to tell about today's disaster, but too tired for that. Besides I want to have the pics of the set to show you. Either way my back and knees are killing me from a lot of marbling.

Work: sucks...I am very behind because I keep having to fix things. I love most of my staff but they keep giving me aneurysms on a minute by minute basis. At least the days go fast...so fast I look at the clock and realize I should have left an hour earlier.
At least I make my own schedule (within reason) and I am taking Halloween off....from everything. No work at all. It is Halloween a time to remember those who have left us and a time to dress up, sugar up the neighborhood rugrats and party. If it not about costumes, ritual, chocolate or booze...don't talk to me. I haven't even worked on my costume yet. *sigh*

Well...i'm off to bed with some painkillers...(did I mention my uterus has been trying to rip itself out for the last week?) Have I spontaneously combusted yet????

And then there were three...

My Love came home to this little guy sleeping in the trap cage. One left...but he's going to be the hardest...he witnessed one of his siblings being trapped. (of course all these gender references are made up...we have no clue if they are male or female)

Two down...

two to go.

Well, we just got Floofy with the have a heart trap and add him to the party in the garage. We found a place that will come and spay/neuter and then release but it is $67 a cat. And we are looking at 4 cats.(hopefully)

Anyone want to sponsor a kitty??

Today's adventure

So over the summer a feral cat had kittens under our neighbor's shed. There were early half-hearted attempts to catch them. Our neighbor dropped the ball on the whole thing, except for feeding the lot of them. We have been feeding them as well. I've possibly found a home for one of them...the neighbor lined up some homes but they apparently have fallen through.

We managed to get this one into our garage. We are upping our efforts to catch them due to the drop in temperature and the coyote wandering around our back yard. Yes we have coyotes in the neighborhood...and we are by no means rural. Tomorrow my love is going to see if we can find an organization to help. I did find one online that examines and spays/neuters the feral cats and then releases them into a barn environment. I think this lot would be good for that. They are still very skittish around people.

Do you have any because most of our employees don't.

Grand opening was today. I was there at 7am...which wouldn't have been so bad if I hadn't been there until 11:30 the night before. And I left an hour and 45 past when I was scheduled today. I am now cozying up to a fire in the fireplace and a bottle of wine.

Please don't expect much on the blog side for a little while. But do contact me if you know of any job openings...let me tell you..the Hooters down the street is starting to look rather promising.

Secret Pal Strikes Again!!!

Secret Pal you so rock!
Saturday I decided to run home after work before running to the theatre on a sheer whim. I thought maybe I'd grab a bite before spending the evening crawling around to paint the brick below. Lo and behold there was a box on my doorstep. Inside the box was this...

And inside was this treasure trove...
There are cookie cutters to add to my vast collection (how did you know??!!) in ghost, pumpkin, bat and black cat. A craft kit for a Bat halloween bell. A foam stamp with a skull, gravestone, spooky tree and ghost. A delightfully creepy finger candle with a skull ring tied to it. Spider shaped glitter confetti. An absolutely beautiful charmed folding scissor necklace...(much needed since my scissors often end up under my butt on the couch.) A Ghirardelli "intense Dark " chocolate bar with espresso beans. I nearly died at the sight of that. It is being saved for some intense me time. Lastly was a crafted halloween mix cd full of some my favorite music...quite a creepy eclectic mix. This will probably be my new painting cd.

Again...thank you thank you thank you. Secret pal you rock. Your gift actually convinced me to stay home and take the night off.

Busy Season

Did I mention this is my BusySeason? I'm working full time at my regular job. Actually I'm working overtime at my regular job and i'm not sure I'm liking this manager stuff. Then I have my show at the highschool and now I'm doing a overhire gig at a small local professional theatre that I used to work for. Yes I am crazy. But I need new rear tires and I love being in with my theatre crowd again. Though it makes going to my regular job all that much harder.

And I'm knitting when I can in between.

I haven't really eaten today and can't remember when I showered last.

yep...its my busy season.
