    Since we have a venting thread, here is a thread to share the little bits of good news that aren't big enough to deserve their own thread.

    My good news:

    The antibiotics have finally kicked in and I'm feeling much, much better from my UTI! Whoot! And I don't have my Eng class for the next three class periods. Hooray!

    National lampoons christmad vacation is on TV. My favorite movie on the planet. I am sick but this movie cheers me up like nothing else.

    The good news is our busy schedule is working out beautifully. Assisting at the preschool, teaching at two homeschool co opas and taking hannah to gymnastics and add in a womens bible study, there is a lot on my plate but it really is working out very nicely and Hannah and I are both growing tremendously throughout this journey

    My anniversary is this Monday so the Mrs and I are getting away. Used some of those hotel points I earn throughout the year and also got tickets to a dinner theater in Lancaster (Sparks - you and Brian be on the lookout for refugees) ;)

    I love life, I really have nothing to complain about. We're planning 2 semi-soon trips, have some fun projects going on, our dogs are doing great, and I treasure every minute of my time spent with my husband and them!

    I HAVE A FREAKING JOB AT THE ZOO!!!!!!!!!

    Oh, and I went on a herping trip today and had a blast. Our entire group of 11 people only caught one tiny little cricket frog, but it was still great fun. Well, we caught a bunch of fish, too, including a BIG catfish, but they're not herps, so they don't count ;)

    And it might be something to be funny to be happy about to most people, but as we were riding in the van for an hour and a half for this herping trip, the three of us sitting in the back realized that all three of us are on the autism spectrum...out of a class of 9 people. Seems like Zoo Science attract a lot of people on the spectrum ;)

    I get paid tomorrow! And starting next week I'll have a lighter work load so I'll be in much better spirits. I've been getting legitimately depressed over it, because it's just WAY more hours than I can currently handle with all that's going on in my life and because I'm just honestly not used to being on my feet for 7, 8, 9 hours at a time.

    I get to play in women's 35+ softball worlds this weekend.

    My hockey season starts at the end of the month.

    My 37th b-day is next week.

    Even though DH failed his PT test for the second time...he's not getting kicked out. And he still has his orders for Italy.

    I think that's good news?

    I got into grad school.

    I got all my classes figured out.

    My boyfriend might get a car this week.

    My boyfriend got his AS in computer tech last week.

    He got accepted to the same school I'm going to for the spring to get his BA in creative writing.

    He sold 9 pairs of earrings at an art walk this week, and made $85 profit.

    He had a job interview this week and it went well.

    Today is my birthday and my dad got me 'Belgian Tervuren Champions, 1991-2011,' which is pretty cool.

    My boyfriend got me a whiteboard and installed it so I can use that to study.

    I'm going to get to TA and that'll pay for my school.

    Basically, my life went from awful (June) to amazing (now).

    Oh and I'm wearing a new shirt today and while playing with Elsie, a guy said, "Cute! Oh, not the dog, you, girl." Which was nice.

    My good news is us (Gnash n I) getting invited to join a PSA club. I wanted to get experience in a different venue after we achieved out Schutzhund goals. Tried out at our only PSA club within a few hundred miles and Gnash had a blast on full body suit, the training director invited us to join and work towards PSA titles, made my day.

    Related to my vent post... LOL

    I'm loving that Finn has a live-in pal. Man oh man. He's settled so well into the new routines, and since Scott and I keep slightly different hours, he and Beauty get to play until late at night, while during the morning I have Finn all to myself. <3

    It's pretty amazing.

    I tried to think about something to vent about, and couldn't. That's pretty good news :D

    Considering I was on the verge of having a nervous breakdown because of work a few months ago...

    Still busy in the new job but not even close to how it was in the last one!!
