my guess is..it was a very successful fundraiser...my hope is everyone had a really good time. fantastic job sheila, leila and everyone else! and esp. thx to nat for mc'ing our event so well!!! and i totally loved shelley's new saints video!!!!
the dogs were a bit frantic by the time i got home but settled really quickly once i was back in the house. i cleaned up the accidents and went straight off to bed.
whenever we do things outside of our comfort zone, it stresses and stretches us a bit. i am so utterly glad that 11 years ago, i founded saints. but on gala night or any saints celebration, i find being the founder of saints difficult...i have to dig deep to represent our animals, and i thinking mostly i am lacking in those kind of things.
in any case, i made it thru again but man i am tired this morning...today i would like to curl up on the couch with a pillow and blanket and multiple cups of hot sweet tea, and watch the rain out the windows, hitting the ground and happily eventually filling up my well.
hmmm...we all know that's not happening. i have things to do but more importantly...there are 2 palliative dogs taking up the whole couch and neither mika nor roger seem inclined to move.
oh and that reminds me of something...not dying dogs or couches i can't use... it is the much longed for rain that reminds me...
i knew the rain was coming and would be here for several days so i thought i would give one last ditch effort to grow the front yard grass again. sadly all the effort and lovely sprouts that i grew in the spring, did not survive the drought. i went to the garden store and bought that mutated seed that supposedly grows on anything, including cement...hah! that ought to be tough enough for saints!
well..quite frankly i don't know if it is or it isn't because once the seed was down, hordes of little tiny sparrows swooped in and stole the seed.
and this morning i am worrying...is that mutated, grow on cement seed... safe for birds to eat?
so this morning i am feeling tired and worried and guilty....sucks to be me.
