Mini Shack

That is what we lovingly call the garage where my parents keep their cars. The Mini lived there first, so it's named after her! Last night, we had a family Mini Shack meeting. It was fun uncle bet me $100 I couldn't drink a whole quart. I said 'Watch me.' then he went home& I went to bed after consuming a quarter of the bottle. We're clearly party animals. There were lots of dogs there as well. Okay, three. But that is three times as many as I usually have in my house! Squirt, Joey& Lola. But WHO is Lola you demand? Well, allow me to present to you a photo of Lola in the light box.

Lola is three& has a severe under bite. She cracks me up. So we threw a bow on her head& made her stay in the light box. Thanks, Hodder family for lending me your dog! Also, thank Jess for hanging out with me yesterday& bringing me delicious shortbread cookies to decorate& eat! Using a flash+ the light box = a whole new challenge. I'm going to have to work on this. Hopefully, Squirt will become more cooperative in the new year since he's had a giant break from it.

Turns out my uncle is leaving a few days early. He's out of here tomorrow. Perfect. I don't particularly care if I never see him again. I'm trying not to be sour but he hasn't even told me I'm not getting Joey yet. He's barely spoken to me& as time passes I'm less likely to accept his apology. Oh well. On a brighter note, I'm throwing on some running clothes& going out into the -10C weather with 60km/h wind. I plan on running myself out of this funk completely! Wish me luck.

What do you do when you're in a funk? Any advice to help me shake this feeling?
