I feel like I'm drowning in LAUNDRY! I hope I'm not the only one that feels that way occasionally. It's crazy. I've done 4 loads already, and then I have like 2 or possibly 3 more to do! I have a feeling I wait entirely too long to do laundry, which also means I probably have way to many closes. But who has enough clothes? Really? No one. 

At least, I don't think anyone can have too many clothes, or shoes for that matter. :)

Well, looks like I'm going to get back to laundry!

Lutheran Hospital, Horrible Weather & One Sick Pup

Well, I guess since I have some spare time I'll go ahead and update and clue in on the Lutheran Hospital stuff I keep mentioning. Right now I'm in a Psychology Field Experience class, and a requirement of that class is to have a 6 month, or 120 hours of Volunteer Experience, also known as an internship. So, I chose the children's section of the Lutheran Hospital. I haven't gotten to start anything yet because in order to start one has to have a drug screening, go through an orientation, and then also have two TB tests done, resulting in both negative responses. So... when I was about 3 years old I had a TB test done, and it was negative... thank goodness it counts cause I'm not the kind of person that likes shots. So, I only have to have 1 shot done, which was done last Friday, and I got it read today. Negative! Big surprise! lol So now, I just have to wait to hear back from the Children's Section of the hospital so I can start volunteering. :) 

Other then that, I definitely skipped all my classes today. I know, bad girl. But! The weather was absolutely horrible. I couldn't go over 25-30mph the whole time I was out on the roads. Including the highways. Therefore, instead of heading to finish my last 2 classes after going to the hospital, I just went straight home..... 
To a dog that is sick. Poor Jacob Marley. 

Left Leah home and took Jake to the vet today as well (yes, in this HORRID weather). Apparently he's got a throat infection, which causes dogs gag reflex's to spike, which explains the vomiting that has  been going on everyday for about a week now. The vet gave us 7 days worth of pills, 2 every 12 hours. Hopefully it helps, cause I feel so bad for the poor guy, even though he acts completely fine. 

So one sick dog, one well dog, two well humans, and a winter white storm happening outside. What more could I ask for on a Monday?

Icey As *%&$!!!

I cannot believe how horrible it is outside here. We've had a week of amazing weather. Enough to melt the 90 bazillion layers of snow we had stacked up everywhere.... and now? Whats all over the ground? Sheets of ICE. Oh yeah... ice. My car's very best friend... Not.

Let me introduce you to my vehicle. I drive a Beetle Bug, aka, worst bad weather car EVER. At least thats how it is for muah. Anywho, I go outside my apartment this morning to a thick sheet of ice over the entire thing. Of course, it's at its thickest on my front windshield. Not the side windows or the back, the front. The main freaking window. Neither one of my plastic scrappers work on my front window, just the not so thick sides of ice. So, what do I have left to do? Go back inside and wait as my poor little bug sits outside, warming itself up alone. My bug and I have a very love hate relationship. Well, it's been about 20 minutes, and it looks like I'm going to go out and check how it's working out, the ice melting that is.

If all works out, I'll be heading to the Lutheran Hospital to get my TB test checked, then off to class, since I'm missing my first one. Again, I promise, Lutheran Hospital information will be my next post, since I keep mentioning it randomly.

Good luck to all those out there in horrible weather.
I know how it feels.

Blog? I think so.

My first blog. I don't feel like it's anything to boast about, but I am interested in how it is going to turn out. Will I continue to post day by day? Week by week? Or even at least once a month? I'm pretty good at keeping up with things on the regular, but I know I also have a busy life with school, family, and my two dogs that seek attention every second of every minute.

So what do I write about? My life? Of course. My life...

School. School consumes my life, even though I'm only there for a few hours a day, 5 days a week. I'm a Psychology Major, and I'm very anxious to graduate with my diploma. I'm probably in school for about 13 hours a week, which in all reality is not much at all. But it's enough work to keep me busy.

I also have a boyfriend. Name, Samuel Wayne. He's like my twin, but in male form, which makes getting along amazing. We've been together for over 8 months now, and I don't see anything changing soon. Speaking of him, I've just been bomb-barded with flashes. He's a big fan of photography, even though I'm not the biggest fan of being in pictures. I'm one of the pickest picture takers ever. And I've taken the camera over and deleted every single picture, except of the one of Jacob. My face does not need to be seen by the public at 12:30am, without make up, and without my hair done. It's a frizzy mess right now.

I know I've mentioned one of my dogs already, but I have two. The other one is Leah. She's my baby girl, even though half the time I want to ring her neck because she's still a puppy and hyper like crazy. She's only around 8 months, we don't know for sure since we adopted her. We have actually adopted both of our dogs, Jake & Leah. At first, I didn't really "want" Jake. He was Sam's favorite. We were walking through, just seeing what they had in the shelter, and Sam fell in love with him. Jay was in the "Adult" kennels, since he was estimated to be about 2 years old already. After we adopted him the next day, Sam informed me that the particular shelter we had gone to, kills off their animals that stay there too long. I couldn't believe it. I was so glad we had adopted Jacob, because it was obvious he wasn't the favorite in the kennels he was in. There were 4 other dogs with him, and everyone that had gone through along with us, either went straight to the puppies or over to the other adult dogs. Poor Jacob was on his own, until we came around. He very quickly gained a special spot in my heart, and I'll always love him, along with his crazy hyper tiny sister. I would 100% recommend adoption over spending an extreme amount of money on a pet, if you can.

And as I mentioned earlier, it's pretty late here. I know I haven't written that much, but I'm ready for bed. Plus, I have classes in the morning, along with getting the resuts of my TB test at Lutheran Hospital. I'll clue you in later about all that stuff, it's all good, and all for school.

Goodnight from myself and the pups.
