We are in the home stretch of finishing session and I'm tired and tense. I've not purchased groceries in over 3 months and haven't seen my house in the daylight in over a month. It's all over on Monday night!

Last night I left the office before midnight and needed to look for end of session gifts for my boss and his wife. I found myself at Costco...and sat is this chair for 15 minutes. Yes it was in the aisle and yes I had to kick some kids out of it. I just sat there with my eyes closed...It.Was.Amazing!

Don't judge me!

Thanks to my roommie who left me this awesome note on the back door. I haven't been home before midnight in about 2 1/2 weeks so it's very fitting.

Also what a great day so far...done 2 loads of laundry, morning mass and some great migas from Casa Garcia and it's only 8:08am. Happy Birthday to all those that are celebrating either today or in the next two weeks, including the roomie, vet school Johnny, my brother, Jess, James, Ashley and Brown Eyed Girl.

Denied: Update

Just wanted to give everyone a status update on the puppy adoption. Apparently I was dropped because I didn't give the blow by blow of my day. Basically I didn't say specifically that I would come home at lunch and let the dog out to do his business. Silly I know but if you're going through a rescue group you should be very detailed in your answers!

So I guess I'm being reconsidered for the puppy but at the lady told me...."there has been a lot of interest in Grover and his sisters so they are going to be very selective on who they choose".

What's a girl got to do to get a dog around here. I've been thinking about adopting a puppy for quit some time. As I mentioned before I search on an almost daily bases in hopes of fining "the one". On Friday I after going through pages and pages I found a perfect, super cute, medium size dog. He's 10 weeks old Schnauzer mix named Grover! I decided to bit the bullet and fill out my adoption application for this adorable little guy and wait for the reply email.

Email received today - and I.Was.Denied! Can you believe it...denied? What does it take to adopted a stray dog around here. I mean, really, it's not like I'm applying to raise the offspring of Uno the Beagle. Don't you guys think I should at least have the opportunity for consideration.....

Prom Season is in full swing. This evening I have a couple of corsages to make and deliver for a high school prom that is tomorrow night. It's got me thinking about my own prom way back when. I was a sophomore in high school and I was dating a senior football player - anyway he asked me to prom and of course I was jumping up and down when I was telling my mom. I borrowed a dress from my cousin and got the jewelry and shoes, had my hair done in the fantastic up do. He picked me up in a freshly washed red mustang and we here rockin' it. Let's just say that by the end of the night I was missing an earring and I've held on to its mate ever since. So if your daughter comes home after prom with one less earring....

Haphazard List

Here is what's running through my mind at the moment:

1. Session will be over in 19 days...all I can think about is getting outside.

2. I really want a dog...I've been looking on everyday for the last 2 weeks. I've picked one out everyday for the last 2 weeks....

3. My traveling friend is back from New Zealand and Australia and I can't wait for her to visit me.

4. My pretend boyfriend was approved for the Marine JAG program yesterday. He leaves for Officer Training School on May 28th. I won't get to hang out with him all summer...I'm really sad but he's going to kick some major ass!

5. I'm loving this luggage from Target and I look at it every time is go...maybe it will be mine soon. It's on sale this week....if I can get there before Saturday night.

6. I miss all my friends. I don't see anyone anymore, not even my work friends. There is going to be some serious visiting of people when this is over.

7. My brother is buying a super cute house in Dallas. I can't wait to help him with whatever he needs me to do. He did after all, crawl in my attic to hang ceiling fans and help build a fence around my house when I was out of town. I'm a painting master...just hand me a brush.

8. I really wish it wouldn't be creepy for me to have a trampoline in my backyard. I loved the one we had growing up. It was fun and we spent hours on it everyday...mostly because our mom would lock us out of the house.

Caught on Camera

So it has been requested by a few that I need to post....something funny!

Procrastination strikes again. I wore my pajama pants to the office this morning because there is a lack of clothes in the closet. I was in a much needed state of getting my damn clothes from the dry cleaners. I pulled into the darken garage with the hope that no one would be parked around me. Just so happens that J.a.k. had just pulled in too. I had to admit right there that I was about to strip down and change pants. She didn't seem impressed mostly she was concerned with the fact that there are security cameras all around and what if I got caught. If the person watching the screens saw me in my car wasn't the first time and probably not the last!

Oops I did it again...and again and again!

May Day

Happy May Day everyone! Decorate your may poll and dance around like a little girl or at least sit outside and drink a beer to a celebrate fantastic month ahead. What's not to love about month the has so many reasons to party: May Day, Cinco de Mayo, Mother's Day, Memorial Day, graduations and a ton of birthdays of friends and family.

I have opened the window in my office and I think the fresh air is helping my brain - I'll take what I can get. To close the window I have to stand in the window seal and do a full body hang. I was closing it last night and my boss yelled "Don't Jump!". After the day we had I couldn't tell if he really thought I was contemplating a long fall or if he thought it would lighten the mood but either way and we all had a good laugh.

So I notice that I only posted twice in April and the is piss poor. I will do better this month even if it means only posting 3 times!
