|Ok, so this was a different birthday, but same place, same beers, different shirts, so it works.|
|PNC is the prettiest field in the world.|
|I took this on my sister's phone, so I can steal it from her blog, right?|
Then I headed down to my sister's to help her put up some bulletin boards in her classroom. I can't wait to see them when they're all finished because I think that they are already super cute right now.
I did, however, learn that I am very glad that I don't have a classroom of my own! As cute as the bulletin boards are, putting them up is way too much manual labor for my taste!
I also learned that I hate traveling without my pets. I got a taste of this in May when I drove from Pittsburgh to DC to Williamsburg, VA to Charlotte, NC to Charleston, SC to go to various graduations and catch up with good friends, but this short trip confirmed that I'd much rather have my pets along for the adventure. Driving alone is just so lonely.
The pets seemed to hate me traveling without them, too, even though their grandparents spoiled them silly while I was gone. Now that I'm home, they are in rare form; I might actually look forward to going back to work on Monday if they keep this up!
When I first got my parents' on Tuesday to retrieve them, Barley almost knocked me down the basement stairs she was so excited to see me when the door opened. Soth came trotting into the room pretty quickly, too, to get his love. Neither one of them has let me out of their sight for long since I got back.
Today was our first full day at home. Soth has been giving me the evil eye all day, despite wanting to be right beside me all day.
|This is the look I got while I drank my coffee this morning. (If you look closely, you can see Barley's tail in the background . . . she couldn't be left out, either.)|
|Seriously. He is creepy.|
Barley has been beside me all day, with one naughty exception. A few minutes ago, I caught her with her paws on the stove licking the pork chop pan I had just emptied of leftovers. When she knew she was caught, she ran and hid under a pillow.
|"I can't get in trouble if Mom can't see me."|
Now, she's snoring away beside the couch.
