Fall has most definitely arrived. It was 30 degrees this morning when I left for work.
Zuzu is still alive- who'da thunk it?
I did try to put a contact in my eye. A brown colored one, so I could finally see what it would have been like if Mom had gotten her wish for a brown-eyed baby. After 20 minutes of poking my eye and blinking profusely, I gave up. Then I had to help more patients, looking like I was on drugs.
Currently boiling a turkey carcass- who else gets excited about that besides me? It doesn't exactly fit in my dutch oven, but I'm still enjoying it. Gumbo on Christmas is going to be AWER-SOME!
To Do list:
-buy a small christmas tree. mainly so i can put up lights.
can't think of anything else.
love you all!
when is fall getting here? also, i demand snow this year. last year i came up to arkansas, waiting for snow. where did snow appear? new orleans!
hm. i'm trying to think of what's new with me, other than being impatient for some cold fronts. my parents came up for labor day, and that was great. they got to see my apartment, play JL's new wii, and have a get-together at the hooton's. and, of course, see my adorable niece who brings us all so much joy.
in other news, JL and i have been together for more than a year now. i am so very happy! we celebrated by going up to petit jean and exchanging gifts- for him, the wii, and for me a cd of songs that he burned for me. so romantic!
loving my job as an optician. it's long hours, which has taken the most getting used to, but i think i'm getting the hang of measuring people's vision and helping them pick out glasses and all. the only thing i haven't done is actually put a contact in my own eye. i don't really want to.
halloween is coming up. ugh. i dislike halloween the most out of all our national holidays, because i'm usually trying to get things done, and these punk kids keep ringing my doorbell and demanding more candy. some of them are downright rude. what do i get out of this?
and most of y'all that are friends with mom have most likely heard that zuzu is dying. it does make me very sad, but mostly i pray that the Lord will sustain my parents. dog or not, it's difficult to lose someone you love and have been close to for so many years.
guess that's about it. i love you all!
it's not just an update. it's new.
so i have a new job at an opthemologist's office. hope i spelled that right. anyhoo, i'm going to be a tech which means i'll be showing you to your room, looking at your eyes and saying "thank you, the doctor will be with you in a moment."
i'm sure it'll be a lot more involved than that, but that's basically all i know right now. i bought my scrubs too, which was exciting. i start monday.
hmm what else? my fish are down to one but i bet i already mentioned that. michael's still kickin.
tomorrow i'm going to get my arkansas driver's license, since my louisiana one expires on my birthday (which is in 22 days!). i'm delegating plenty of time to sit around, waiting for a beauraucracy.
not sure i spelled that right either.
things with jl are going really well. 3
don't really have anything to say, but i'm updating.
watching 48 hours MYSTERY. i must have watched court tv too much, because i'm dictating it. why don't they check dental records?
had a great weekend with melissa and isshah! playing fugitive, clothes shopping, listening to cake woman scream at her husband. good times.
marketplace got struck by lightning last night. the computers were fried, the air conditioning was fried, and the fire alarm kept going off. also good times.
i get to see jl tomorrow! he got a job as a teacher, and is now learning how to be a teacher. life without him (sort of) takes some getting used to, since he moved about two hours away. we'll see.
spose that's about it. oh, also:
boo on harry potter.
4 days of wonderful, blissful, no-working-on-prep. that's my job. YAY!
heading down to louisiana tomorrow to see my 'rents. jl's coming with me. he would ;O)
i hope you all are doing wonderfully!
p.s. dwight died, but holly and michael are still swimmin like the fish they are.
