I'd like to say I'm sorry I haven't been around much but hell, I haven't been around long enough to be missed. I can accept that.
I've been busy as all get out.
First off after a long medical leave from work I returned to work April 30th. That alone has kept me extremely busy. Add in I've being doing a ton of travel for work as well. I'm typically gone 3-4 nights a week. That sucks but it is much better than driving 1000+ miles a week. Plus the travel frequently puts me in close proximity to my grandson, family and friends.
The other thing that has kept me busy is that some of my babies, my pets, have decided to have babies.
These beauties hatched on July 3rd and July 6th, 2013. They stayed with the parents for the first six weeks (nearly) and have been travelling with me since.
Here is a picture of them just taken today.
Yes, they grow so fast. They are beautiful! They are 4th generation hybrid macaws that I am calling "Paleo" macaws as homage to some history of natives of the Americas and their pure bred ancestors. I know, silly but it is my choice, thats my story and I'm sticking to it.
I have been painting my nails but due to time constraints I'm lucky if I can get a decent mani done. While my nails are painted pretty at the moment it is just a plain polish job and i desperately need to do a full mani and pamper my cuticles a bit.
The babies are almost weaned which means I'm almost done hand-feeding them. Once that wraps up I'll have more time on my hands. So to speak of course.
I am officially on furlough right now thanks to the American governments inability to function. While the not working has free'd up some time, I'm using that time to get caught up on work around my house that has been put off because of the travelling.
Eventually things will once again normalize and I'll be back to my favorite "ME" activity.
