Busy Busy Busy!!

Since getting married, life has been pretty hectic both at work and at home. There's been so many days between March 21st and now that I wish I could just sit at home and be nothing but a boring housewife, but then I remember that I like earning and spending my own money. I don't have to depend on another person and I can contribute equally to bills and stuff like my husband.

Work seems to be on hyper mode right now as I'm still trying to complete this project. It seems like since I took that break to get married, I feel like I've been behind ever since. I've worked much longer hours than I did before and actually feel like I've completed more too. Do I feel accomplished, not really. I feel more overwhelmed than before, and honestly, I feel like I've taken on more responsibilities than I should be, all thanks to a "wonderful" supervisor.

I've had to work some long hours lately due to the numerous dentist appointments I have. I've learned my lesson this time to not avoid the dentist every year as I had to pay for it this year because they found 6 cavities in my mouth, 1 of which needed a root canal. Granted it's not fun sitting in a chair and hearing drills going on in your mouth, it's actually a good time to get away. The dentist I see has TVs in their rooms and it's a great way to relax especially if I'm taking off work. Don't get me wrong here, I don't enjoy the numbness or the throbbing that goes on in my mouth, but it's nice to get away and be able to shut your eyes and think about nothing. And to all those that are scared of a root canal, there is nothing to be afraid of. I honestly think it was a lot easier and less painful than the 4 cavities done. The other thing that should be remembered is that specialists do root canals. These people generally are better than regular dentists who do cavities as they probably had to go to school longer.

I've been pretty busy with Craftster swap again, although I was trying to limit myself on them because I wanted to start an Etsy. It's so hard to as there are a few swaps that I am so very fond of and a lot of new ones that I always like to try out. Recently, I've started getting into a lot of paper crafts and collecting random pictures and stuff. It's really amazing how people can create beautiful artwork from recycled papers and magazines. I won't be posting any pictures in case someone from my swaps are reading this so that I don't ruin any surprises.

Andy and I had a lot of fun at the Pima County Fair this past weekend. We saw a lot from farm animals to demolition derby. I wanted to see Bret Michaels in concert, but the concert area was jammed back by the time I got there. Music sounded great though. We also went to a pig race and the weird side show with lots of weird things.

Other random tid-bits: my tomato plant is in full bloom. Some of them are starting to turn red. The green bell pepper tree is doing great. Most likely I will have a ton of them by the time summer ends. The jalapeno plant is still going with two flowers. I hope that more will grow.

I wasn't close enough to see Bret Michaels at all, so that was a bummer. I really doubt the penthouse chick he pick really is on the road with him.
