I spent a lot of time talking to Joey yesterday about my views on animal rights and Scriptural references to support them (and also Scriptural references that called them into question). I have made peace now with being able to stand up for animal rights and feel as though I'm not being a "bad Christian" for it. I'm glad to finally be comfortable in that. I think that there's room for a ministry to be made out of compassion for Creation.
This weekend was totally awesome. I got a half day Friday and we went out to UNCC to see Shannon fly through the air during the pole vault. It was really neat to see, even if the girls did have to wait two hours after their designated start time. There was sun, there was fun, and we capped it off with a great Mexican dinner to celebrate James's NEW JOB!!!
Yesterday, I had coffee with two friends from high school. Ten years really gives us all perspective, I think. It's funny how fast the time goes, though.

Unfortunately, the above is a FO post of a hat that I intended for myself but grossly underestimated the gauge, and ended up with a tiny hat that looked absolutely RIDICULOUS on James, therefore making it all the more hilarious that he was so thrilled to model it for us!
It was an AWESOME weekend. Friday night was laid back...we went to the gun show Saturday and spent the whole day with Shannon and James (I think some sort of road trip may be in order after Shannon graduates!!).
On Tuesday, I'm getting rid of something that I've been holding on to since December 2007: my hair. I've been growing it out for Locks of Love since then, and now I'm relatively certain that I have enough to donate and am going to get it cut *short*!!. I'm really excited, because I'm so tired of having a sweaty neck and it taking 10 minutes for my hair to dry.
I've also lost seven pounds thus far...three more and I get to have a shopping spree at the Salvation Army!! And thirteen more and I'll get my next tattoo!
Last night, James wanted to make meatball subs, and Joey and he found vegetarian sausage crumbles, which Joey turned into fabulous meatballs. I'm growing more comfortable about being a vegetarian every day...I'm really starting to feel that, eventually, I may give up eggs and cheese and go fully vegan. I don't know...just a gut feeling.
I'm looking forward to what looks like it will be a pretty good week.

As much as I feel as though I could live as a hermit, I know that I couldn't.
It's funny how we learn things about ourselves constantly.

So, I'll be taking Shannon's advice for my 5K training; I figure that she probably knows what she's doing since she's a track star and whatnot;).
I've decided that I have to free up some of my knitting needles, so I'm working to get my many projects done so that I can start some new stuff.
We bought Shelli a Booda cat box today. Holy crap, is that thing huge....it's got a little tunnel leading up to the litterbox that's this huge dome and is totally enclosed. And, she really loves it already, which is nice. Anything we can do to help keep us pee free!
A boring start to the week, I know. It's fine with me...there's too much drama these days as it is.
