What's been going on with me this last week

This week has been my first week of school at the College of Saint Rose. Last night I had my first literary concept class, which I found out is just like philosophy. By the end of the 2.5 hours I felt like my brain was fried. I'm glad that UCR's english program was all analytical otherwise I totally wouldn't have done it. Hopefully I'll survive, but phil. isn't my strongest subject. We were talking about "body politic" last night. I was like what the heck is that?! I was pretty boggled, but I think managed to make myself look smart with my awesome bs-ing skills once again. My other two writing classes are a breeze in comparison. Hopefully the workshops won't be too harsh on my writing though. For my fiction writing class the prof told me that she doesn't really critique young adult stuff so I'll have to do adult fiction instead. That kind of bummed me out, but it'll help expand my horizons. The other writing class is a little scary because I have to write a screenplay, which I've never done before. I hadn't actually set eyes on one until that class. Hahah.

The people in my classes seem nice, but they all seem like they're trying to look smart. On the first day of my fiction writing class everyone had to tell who their favorite authors were. People were spitting out names I've never heard of and stuff like Dickens and Kafka. I was the last person to go and by the time they got to me I was just like, umm, I like JK Rowling and Meg Cabot (Princess Diaries). I did throw Jane Austen (Pride and {rejudice) in there just for good measure. But I was like, god, either you're all liars or I'm stupid. Hopefully they're all liars. Hahaha anyways, I've been doing a butt load of reading and Ed's been slaving over his company stuff. He literally goes to sleep around 7am when I'm getting up for work. It's a little ridiculous. I think it's starting to slow down now though so that's good. He's starting to get sick too so he'll have to take a break. I should get back to reading. That’s all folks!

More Emmy pictures and my castle

Yesterday we went to Color Me Mine with the kids at work and I loved it! So tonight I went back and painted a Sorting Hat and started a castle. On Thursdays they have a special from 6-9pm where there is a flat rate of $10 for a painting session instead of $8 and hour. I stayed for 2.5 hours. I only left because I didn't want the girls to have to stay late and I was freezing. The sorting hat I finished so it's at the shop to get glazed and fired, but the castle came home with me.

It's my Hogwarts!!!

Chris' welcome home poster

This took me almost four hours to make. I did take some breaks and a friend came over so it took quite a while.

It looks like she's reading it!

Emmy always sleeps like this. It must be something about being against the wall.

Emmy's furcut

Since it's been so hot here I was finally convinced to have Emmy's fur cut. She almost doesn't look like herself without all of her fluff.

On the way to Petsmart I got rear ended. The girl's license plate holder punched two holes in my back bumper.

I was lucky enough to take a couple of pictures in the car (that's why they're not in focus. I just did a point and hope that she's in the frame thing). As soon as we got home Emmy got hopped out of the car and it only took one good shake for the cute little pink ribbons that the groomer put in her fur to fly out.

The groomer said that she was the best doggy that she took care of today so I got Emmy a little treat. She had shown some interest when Auntie Julie bought cousin Ruby an enormous bone so I got her a little one to start out with. If she likes it then maybe she can graduate to the bigger one. So far, she doesn't seem to like it, but it sure is cute when she has it in her mouth.

I'm simply an angel.
