I heard it again today so I thought I'd find out a little history about it. I never knew it had nothing to do with dogs. I always thought this time of year was so hot that dogs lost their minds or something. Actually, it's about a star. Seriously. Sirius. These days occur when Sirius rises and sets with the sun. Pretty cool. Look it up.
This has been one long, crazy week and I'll be glad when it's over!! My insomnia has returned and I'm having trouble sleeping again, I had a really bad episode with reflux Tuesday night, I had to tell my 18-year-old niece, who I wouldn't love more if I'd grown her myself, that she couldn't move in with me and that was hard, then a huge tree fell (and thankfully broke into pieces that I could handle) in my backyard yesterday during that thunderstorm and then this afternoon while I was hanging my laundry on the clothesline, a TICK got on me. I flicked him off before he had a chance to dig in but now I swear there's one on my head somewhere.
But tomorrow's Friday and I have high hopes for an easy weekend. I'm planning to see Brad Pitt's new movie tomorrow after work and then I'll be baking a cake for a little birthday get-together we're having here Saturday evening for my folks and of course, I'll get to be with Larry, who is now only 18 miles away from me!!
