I finished Bender last night and left him on the table with the blanket I am frogging. This morning at the crack of dawn Max wants to go out, ok fine, I drag myself and him out in the morning cold and he does his stuff. All good and I am looking forward to crawling back under the covers. I walk in to this on the coffee table, kind of freaky having eyeballs staring at you when you walk into your house half asleep! The dogs and I went back to sleep for a bit :)
Well the rain came this morning and with it the sunshine and overall light of the day disappeared, I tried all different ways to get a good shot of Bender, but it wasn't happening at all, just too dark and the flash wasn't helping. I really should get on off the camera flash....hmmmm. Anyway done! Yay, I am quite pleased with it and I am sure my Son will be as well. His eyes look a bit wonky here, but I have adjusted them and they are fine. Katlyn even wore it around the house.

For some reason I couldn't seem to fall asleep last night and when I did sleep, I never stayed asleep for long. Always weird because I rarely have sleep issues. I woke up before just my alarm this morning and just got up because I didn't feel the need to keep tossing and turning. My morning routines done early, sweet. On my way to the kitchen to heat the water for coffee, I pass Moo's cage and she's laying all stretched out............CRAP! She never sleeps like that, sure enough she's dead, WTF? She was alive and now dead, ugh. I go to the kitchen get the coffee press ready and clean up a pan I was soaking, decide I need to handle the bunny situation before Katlyn sees her sweet bunny dead. Shoes on, bunny wrapped and loaded cage and all in my car. This is all before coffee. Let me say this, bunny death is not the same as hamster death. Moo was a big, happy and healthy bunny, I am pretty uncalloused on animal deaths as they generally have a shorter life span then we do and it's what happens and well being a Mom of 4 we have had plenty of small animals and I have had plenty of small animal deaths to deal with, so I just deal with it and move on, but I loved that bunny and I know that Katlyn adored her and is going to be quite shocked at the missing cage when she wakes up this morning (morning in a teenagers life usually equals 1ish) Sometimes things in life suck. It's got me a bit down today I can tell you that.
Cheerier note, the new Shinedown album is in on iTunes and it is downloading right now since I preordered the other day with a gift card no less, so I didn't have to wait until payday, which is 7 days away still and by my calculations we are at $9 a day for living on the next 7 days AND I need some groceries which will go over the $9 mark for today, sigh. Wait what happened to my cheer???
Ok, that's me out of here. I will go off and pretend I am working while listening to new Shinedown album!
