Update with Pictures!
I'm at work, with very little to do except read and get ready for school. So, I decided to blog. This one goes out for all you who follow us compulsively on our blog, but never actually get into real contact with us. And yes, I know I just described us and our disposition to you as well.
Rachel has an interview today with Tahitian Noni, so for everybody that reads this before noon today, pray for her. We really hope she gets this job as it will get her out of her current situation and give her a pay raise. Also, I am quitting my job pretty soon, so that of course makes me happy, although I'm trading paid work in for paying to do school work.
I'm really excited to start law school here in a few weeks. The only problem is I'm getting the littlest taste of what it will be like and its scaring me. The summer work issued by certain professors and the school in general is more than I had to do for a number of my undergrad courses. Its not too tough and it is useful work, but it just scares me that I have to write papers and start studying before I step onto campus (kinda makes me feel like I'm in a summer term at Hogwarts (Rachel and I have started reading Harry Potter again)). I'm mostly freaking out because I haven't really been in school for the past year and a half so I feel dumb. I already bought my books. The dent in finances wasn't too bad, and I got most of my books either new or close to it. I finally heard back on financial aid, and we qualified for enough to pay tuition and live so that made Rachel and me very happy...until we have to pay it back of course.
So I got my new laptop and it was supposed to have a card reader for our digital camera. Ends up Lenovo lies. So now we can't get our pictures off our camera until we buy a new cable for it. The whole point of this story is to tell you these pictures were taken with the camera on my lappy, and that's why they're so crappy. But as you can see, our dog is much bigger than before, doesn't have blue eyes, and still has huge ears. Oh, and she still looks like a butterscotch snak-pak.
Funny story. Okay, maybe not funny but a little amusing/wierd/this is the only thing worth writing about it my life right now. Today. 6:45 AM. I hear a very non-rythmic thumping as I lay in bed hanging onto my last semblances of sleep. I figure Rachel is up and just making a bit of noise as she gets ready. I roll out of bed and find the crazy neighbor kid pounding on the window by our door and barking. When I realized what it was I asked Rachel to give me a bazooka for Christmas. Oh, and yesterday she tried climbing through our open window to get a look at our puppy. I told her to go home and fought with her to get the window closed. I was pretty surprised though, when I yelled at her she just smiled at me. Apparently she doesn't spook too easy.
