Graveyard pictures

I decided to take my new camera for a test run at a graveyard in town I had never been too.
I tweaked the brightness and dullness of some of the pictures, as well as added either antiquing or making them black and white, but other than that, nothing else was done- editing wise.

It's been 12 days since my birthday...

Things change so quickly. We began looking at moving, I went from full time to part time, I got laid off. Literally- in less than 12 days.

Things were so good 12 days ago.

The clinic is in trouble now.

We put so much of ourselves into it- so much into our work and our clients and patients... and it's gone. Ripped out from under us because someone decided we weren't what they wanted-- that we didn't look like we should.

I hope Karma comes through this time.

Friday night thoughts

Things are getting strange at work. I got a call from our vet, cutting my hours from 40+ to 34-37 a week. It's not that much, but J can't find work around this town either, so every little bit matters. We have started to look close, but out of the town. We'd have to move. I am finally OK with that. It's not Seattle or Phoenix, but it's not here.
