at any rate, i'm feeling a little more grounded today. it's 73 degrees outside, and i spent almost an hour walking in Piedmont Park with coffeeshopgirl and this 4 legged pogo stick:
her name is dixie and she's my second dog-walking charge thus far in the attempt to make extra money while simultaneously trying to lift The Dark Cloud. she apparently likes to spend a lot of time upside down:
i have a fat cat (she's not big-boned, she's just big mouthed) that also spends a good portion of her day belly up. one time i tried to understand what was so great about it by getting down on the floor next to her, but all it did was make me dizzy.
