stupid santa ana winds

i think they're the santa anas, at least... i'm wearing a long skirt today, so that wasn't helping. it was catching all the wind and i barely made it from my car to the door. seriously! that's a strong wind.

either that, or i REALLY need to start going back to the gym.

tonight's our xmas dinner. we don't have a company xmas party or anything like that, so every year (except for last year) our boss takes some people out. i'm not really social or anything, so these events are always a little bit painful for me. until i suck down that first glass of wine! hehe. well, even then it's uncomfortable.

i wish i could be one of those people who could just mingle and not feel all self-conscious about it.

it was so gross... last night i had to change the bunny's litter. it SMELLED so bad. i wanted to retch. usually steve does that. he's a good hubby. i let the bunny in for a bit and she went straight to the corner with the diaper (one of those bed liners for people who pee in their beds) and peed. a LOT.

so i changed that out and put out another one. she went back to it and peed a lot. again. and pooped all over it. i was like, "god, you're so weird!" and i called steve to tell him about it and he told me that i needed to change out the litter.

oh, yeah. forgot about that. i went outside to retrieve it and it was FULL of poop and pee. it was so damned heavy. *shudder* thank god those poops are just little pellets. i don't think i could ever have a dog or anything. those poops are like human poops. ew.

and do you have any idea how embarrassing it is to go into sav-on and buy a big ol' bag of those bed wetting diaper pads? i hate doing that. stupid bunny. one of these days i'm going to run into someone i know. *cringe*

and it's sad that the highlight of my night was cleaning out the bunny's litter. at least i got to play pikmin.

It surprises me that you are not social. I'd take you as a social butterfly. I guess it's different when you're blogging, eh? I wish I was one of those that could mingle with everyone, too, but everyone intimidates me. :o/

Oh and yuckers on your bunny's litter. When I first read diaper in your post, I was picturing her wearing it. I had to re-read it. heh!

Now there's an evening to remember! I'll bet that is embarrassing buying those diapers. The clerk is probably wondering if you wear them to bed. Bummer.

Maybe you should hold your skirt out and you could fly between places, like Mary poppins did with her umbrella. That would be neat!

Those winds reach all the way down here to AZ. When i got married in Sedona, they were kicking up and almost blew us off the balcony at the bed and breakfast where we got married. It was kind of fun, actually.

Yes, they're Santa Ana winds ... all my plants started blowing around last night. My hanging pots started scratching at my windows, nearly scared the petoozies out of me.

Poor bunny ... you need one of those auto cleaning litter boxes like the kitties have.

Good luck on the dinner thing. Hopefully no one will punch anyone like they did at mine.

Self cleaning litter box? HERE. They're sold at Walmart, Petsmart or Petco.

i dunno... are the bunny poops too small for that thing? i want to get the little tent so she'll have privacy.

damn, they'll make just about everything for your pets now!!!

I saw on the Weather Channel last night the Santa Anna Winds were blowing stuff everywhere. They even showed a truck blown over on it's side. Seeing that made me wonder how you managed to walk through it.
