In other news, I went in for a shift at the humane society yesterday. With the wedding and our house and my three weeks of boo-hooing, it had been some time since I'd been to walk the shelter dogs, and it felt good to be back again.
So, without further adieu, meet Paisley and Willow!
I really liked Paisley. When I did the "love test" she came right over. What's the love test, you ask? Well, I sit on a bench and wait to see if the dog comes over to me for petting and general loving-ness. Some dogs don't respond to this at all, but Paisley was very affectionate and sweet.

I had to Google muahaha. What a stupid word.)
OK, I'm off to run before my Body Pump class. After that I'm going to work at a coffee shop in town. I figure I'm too embarrassed to sleep in a public coffee shop, so hopefully I'll get through page eight of this blasted introduction.
