longest post ever!

 So I made a Lorrie of the Lake Photography facebook page. I feel kinda like exposed and out there now and I hope it won't earn me scorn from 'real photographers' who are bitter about losing business to cheap amatures like me. I'm also very aware of each photos faults as I put them up - harsh shadow, off center focal points, weak colors. It's kinda stressing me out, but it had to be done. I do want to one day be a big girl who makes money instead of losing it. That is the difference between a hobby and a small business right? One you spend a lot of money on and never earn it back, the other you have a small profit to claim on taxes at the end of the year. In any case it's up and public and we'll see if I can use it until I make a little money to have a real web site. Baby steps.
 In other news, the dogs are so happy! And Robert finally mowed the back yard! It only took 2 months of constant nagging and guilting. My yard is big! You couldn't tell when half of it was knee high grass and weeds. It's not very pretty because the dogs have been tearing everything to shit, but we have a plan to fence off a large section for them for while we are at work. I also have an awesome dog house plan - you know how the old pioneer houses that dot the hill country have two little structures connected with a covered breezeway - that's what I want dog sized.

 I screwed up my shift bid at work so I have a kind of crappy shift for the ENTIRE SUMMER! Baggage Service Office (the B.S.) 2:30pm-11pm with Friday/Sat. off. I wanted the closing bag shift 4:14pm-12:45am with weekends off, but it is what it is. It's frustrating to have 32 people who are senior to me after 9 years with the company.  Oh well only 13 more years and I can retire with flight benefits and go work somewhere else! I can hold out. I think. Plus I get a raise in July. So I'll just keep on these happy thoughts as I drag my ass to work every Sunday through August.

 What else. My sister is due in June and I'll get to play with a baby! Then give it back - that's the best part! I made her a diaper bag that is only a little wonky at the zipper (freakin' zippers!) and while I was at my sewing machine I almost finished the blue swirly satiny dress i started like a year ago. And it even fits! I just need to do the hem, and I suck at that. They always come out uneven, but I have seen this thing at The Cock that is for chalking an even hemline while wearing the garment, so I think I'll hold off finishing it until I can buy that. So I think I'll start another project. A bag for myself I think.
