    My dogs are driving me bonkers....but I'm so very happy to have them. Life would be very lonely and less fun without them, even if that means I don't have to deal with loud barking, pee, poop, and hair all over the place.

    Also, I get to go out to my parents' tomorrow for my sister's birthday dinner....which means nommy homecooked food! Whoot! :D

    The house is clean, dishes done, phone sent to be repaired, studying all done, and I'm ready for school to start. It's been a very successful day. :D

    We just got an invitation to Zach's coworker's wedding reception. They are Indian. This is going to be the most awesomest party, ever!

    (Too bad I cannot drink right now...but I will be dragging Zach onto the dance floor into the wee hours of the night!)

    Chicken and dumplings for dinner drooooolllllll. Such a wondrous thing to come home to after working all day.

    A coworker of mine casually mentioned the other day that a friend of hers gave her a brand new $150 clipper, and she didn't need it so she was going to sell it on Craigslist or something. And I said ummmm if you don't want it I'll take it?? So she brought it in for me today. And now I have a new clipper. :D

    And of course, day off tomorrow.

    Seriously guys, wish me luck! And hope that it's more than 24 hours so I can quit the awful job I have now.

    On another note, they want me to move to management at my current job after only being there a little over a month. They said that I've more than proven myself. Made me pretty proud but I just don't want to be there.

    Bates was walking around the kitchen earlier, and even tried to eat some dry baby cat food. Then at his last feeding he seemed hungry and I didn't have to force feed him so much. He's still way behind the others but he's rounded a corner and doing awesome little by little.

    I'm so happy that one of the things that I was extremely worried about turned out to be minor. :)

    I GET TO SEE MICHAEL IS EXACTLY ONE WEEK!!! :banana:

    I'm starting to get ridiculously excited. Although I almost wish I wasn't seeing him - it is going to make coming back home hard. But, the fact that we will finally have phone call privileges again...that will make it so much better.

    My dentist recommended this crazy $100+ sonicare toothbrush and I was like "this is so stupid but fine whatever I'll buy one"

    Holy crap it's amazing.
    My teeth are so white and clean and my whole mouth feels cleaner! AMAZING!

    I've been using it for a week and went back and he was like "I see you've been flossing!"
    and I'm like nope.. I just have a crazy awesome toothbrush now

    Thank you. :) One of the vet assistants called this morning and cancelled the interview. The doctor is out sick and wants to reschedule for next week sometime. I don't have next weeks schedule for my other job so I couldn't give her a day. I will call and set up another interview when I get that schedule so I know when I can do it. I just hope they wait on me. I really, really want this job.

    I just made my first ever etsy purchase!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I've discovered the shipping isn't much more than ordering from the uk (I kid you not) and there is soooooo much stuff on there you can't get over here!! I ordered dog tags! Spoilt. Rotten!!

    I have a feeling I may be making more purchases.
