I'm tired, stop me if you've heard this one before

Have I ever gone 4 whole days without blogging before? Wow. Even I am astounded.
It was an overwhelmingly busy week. Unpacking, going to classes, finish packing and cleaning at the old place (still not done), working, yada yada. Oh and breaking out in hives three separate times.
Here's a picture for your random amusement. It looks more like a rash than hives here because I had been scratching it. I had it all over my face, down my neck, and all over my torso.

Every time I break out I have to take a Benadryl which knocks me out. So in spite of being painfully busy, I've also had to take long unscheduled naps I didn't have time for. A few major things didn't get done as a result, like getting my car inspected, joining the gym, getting a UT license, and getting finger printed for foster care stuff. Oh well, there's always tomorrow and the next day, right?

Sidenote: I have moved into a corner lot house. Things I have learned this week: my driveway is the bus stop for apparently 3 different buses in the morning. (And none in the afternoon, go figure.) Also, my yard appears to be where all the neighborhood dogs and cats stop to get their pee-mail.  My indoor cat, who so desperately yearns to be an outdoor cat, is beside himself with excitement. Every few minutes there is yet another person stopping to walk a dog in my yard (so far they all seem to be picking up after their dogs. i think the little gifts scattered through the yard belonged to the dog that lived here before us.), or a child cutting across the yard to the bus stop. This is cause for non-stop cat excitement, as he must run from windowsill to windowsill, and then to the front door, "chattering" at them. I'm going to have to get this on video just so you can see how insane it is.
As I wrote this post, suddenly what sounded like every dog in the neighborhood started barking. My cat ran from the bed to the empty corner bedroom, where suddenly I heard a loud crash. I got in there to find the blinds torn down (he must have been in a hurry to jump in the windowsill), and the cat in the window hissing at an invisible dog outside.
Crap, and it just happened again. I guess I'm pulling those blinds down for good.
