It is 3:30am. Minou and I can't sleep. Well that isn't true - she was sleeping. I just keep moving which is rather disruptive.
I feel like I should be productive instead of watching lame Colin Farrell movies on TV BUT I'd rather just go to bed. Ugh. Not sure why I can't sleep. I didn't have a nap today - only slept in until 8:00am (did I mention I am officially unemployed again with a looming actor's strike) all I can think is that it is the small mug of hot chocolate I made around 7:00pm. Blah. Won't do that again if that is the case.
Been working on my homework - taking it to the printers tomorrow. Hopefully it is good enough. Ugh. Next I have to figure out how to bind it - then we hand it in on Tuesday.
I have a few other things on the go to some for other people, some for Xmas..
This is for (shhh don't tell) Julien. Here is hoping he doesn't read my blog.
Don't tell Julien!
I'm hoping to put together a whole bunch of them - I won't say much more in case he DOES read my blog... that would be bad. Ruin his whole Christmas I'm sure.
Sigh. Maybe I'll try going back to bed - I just hate it when I toss and turn and disrupt the dictator, he is such a light sleeper - probably hearing my fingers on the key board 3 rooms away is waking him up.

Working on homework.... getting my stuff done. Lots has piled up over the last few months....
Made a Christmas card today - I'll take it to the printers tomorrow. I haven't sent out cards in years - just been doing the email thing. Next I need to get wrap/crew gifts done for work. 2 people I don't have a clue what to buy... ugh...
The dictator and I are renovating, selling furniture and buying furniture. One day we will figure out what to do with this house. This weekend we will probably get a Christmas tree. YIPPEE!
I love Christmas....

oh make that weeks. SOOO SORRY.
I've been busy and then just needed a rest. The girls are fine. They were helping us paint today and have paint spots all over them to prove it. Birdie insisted on being between me and the wall I was painting at all times. Depending on how close I was to the wall meant she was often backing into the wall. I couldn't get her to go elsewhere. She wanted to be petted.
Not much is new. We were away for Thanksgiving. My sister was here the following weekend. Then work all of a sudden went nuts as we did long 12hour + days for two weeks - WHILE at the same time I was trying to build a few costumes for this theatre thing. It was a little stressful. That all ended Oct 30. Now I have rested for a week, am finally getting caught up on homework and housework. The dictator started several renovation projects over the last few weeks - it was nice to help him finish up one of them today. We'll see which one we can finish next.

The wearable art awards finally posted their call for entry. Time to start working on my dress for this year. (or should I say dresses)

I'll try and post more this month with better things.
In the meantime I leave you with Minou's and Birdie's halloween costumes.
