day one

So the first day of my new job was...

a day off. Government holiday, hmm.

Okay, I don't think I messed up too much. Took care of some general housewifery, kept the noise level of my own kids and various neighborhood urchins down to a gentle roar, did a sketch, and talked on the phone to Mom - who would not approve of the sketch girl's posture...

but I felt a lazy streak going. Might as well stick to it.

The weekend was pretty nice and relaxed too. We went out to eat on Saturday for Chaco's birthday. Did I tell you he turned 17 last week? Seven - freaking - teen?? We had Asian food. My fortune cookie said I "will be showered with good luck". SHOWERED.

Then, once again, we totally lost on the weekend NFL pool picks. Let the showering begin.

Happy 17th to Chaco!

I must say I envy him!

And I envy you too, being able to draw like that. The woman's legs look larger because they're closer to the camera lens. But this isn't a camera lens--so you're ingenious to think of that!

Have fun with your new job :)

Happy Birthday to Chaco!

Good way to start the new job... with a day off! I'm sure it won't always be quite this easy.

Nice drawing!

I feel like the sketch girl right now. Trying to wind down by reading a few blogs; then will be heading to bed with a book. I should last...hmmm...5 minutes.

Nice detail in the drawing. The folds, creases, and wrinkles are in all the right places on the clothes.

I'm forgetting (or have I ever known) if Chaco is a senior or junior. Either way,I'll be watching for your "getting ready for college" posts.

Finally getting all caught up around the blogosphere!

Happy birthday to Chaco!

And, lookie at you with your new fangled job and all! Go you! Do you get a flag, or do you use a stop sign? Just curious!

Great Abby ;:OD)

Congratulations- you deserve the award from Michele.
Have a nice Sunday!

'Showered'! That's a pretty hefty quantity of luck right there!

Awww, 17. I am simultaneously amused and terrified at the rate kids grow up these days.
