SELF PORTRAIT THURSDAY!
So so sorry. I’ve missed two posts this month. But this month has been really crazy and unusual. It’s been really good. Going out of town, people coming in town.
But the most recent development: I GOT A DOG! Finally! After about five years of whining about how I don’t have one, I finally got one! Ben and I adopted this little chihuahua, who was a stray in Oklahoma. It happened really fast. One day I came across her listing on an adoption site. One week later she was being transported from OK to NYC. I’m still in shock. I haven’t even had her a week. She’s just made me immensely happy. I wake up in the middle of the night and see her in bed and smile. (Usually she’s looking back at me and wanting a belly rub.)
This morning I woke up in a mood. I was feeling depressed about stupid things, but then I saw Ben and Chilly (short for Xochitl, also responds to Peanut) lying in bed sleeping and it lifted my spirits. Like, why feel bad about things I don’t have when I have two creatures in my bed that love me a lot? I felt silly and grateful.
I can actually go on and on about the dog, but I won’t. I’m sure she’ll keep getting mentioned in the future. I promise.
In other news, not much else is going on. Just gearing up to make more work. I have a couple studio visits planned for the next week or so. Pretty excited about that.
And pretty excited about this weekend. I’m ready to chill out. Usually September is such a weird, dull month. I feel like once you’re out of school, September has no real meaning. It’s just sort of an in-between month, which is why it’s weird that this one has been so busy.
