Fido Photo Shoot

I had my first fido photo shoot. I was asked to take pics of some pretty pups that are the best of friends. One I am told is sick and not doing well. (The Doberman) You could have fooled me. They both looked healthy and happy. The white one is my favorite to photograph. He had a lot of personality.

I did learn that dogs are not that easy to photograph. They move around so fast and every time I got down to their level to take a picture they would try to lick my face off. It was a lot of fun though and I look forward to my next fido photo shoot.

Not to be a whiner but...

I just worked really hard last night, staying up until well past midnight, so I could put together an individual paper that was to be done before my team meeting which was this morning at 10am. Each team member was to bring his or her paper and we were to choose one to present to our class on Monday night. Pretty simple right? But, no one came with a paper except me. As a matter of fact, the members of my team sat there staring at me and asked if I was going to put the team paper together this week. I had to explain that we didn't have a team paper, we had a presentation on one of our individual papers. I was met with blank looks. I guess they didn't understand the assignment. 

In the end, we spent five minutes listening to one person's "plan" for what we each would present and then everyone left. I sat there wondering what had just happened. Now I sit fuming. I want to avoid any confrontation, but I am having a hard time with this group as their actions affect my grade. ARG! Can't I just do my work and turn it in and get through my classes so I can graduate already?!! 

Okay, I'm done.

Things I've Missed

Just thought I would share a list of things I missed while away the last three years...

the rain
the smell after rain
Red Rock
dust devils
suspicious neighbors
aloe plants
neon lights
24 hour business

It's good to be back home.

So we went to this pumpkin patch for Halloween and I was totally let down. We spend $30 on tickets for the younger kids to ride rides and play games. At three tickets a ride or game with 5 kids, we were out of there in a matter of minutes. Guess we will be having a party and haunted house next Halloween.

Note to all pumpkin patch people: You need to lower prices or upgrade the patch!
