Good Tuesday morning, my Christmas friends!

As I type this, my supervisor is doing my co-worker's annual review. I'm up next. I always hate this part. You have to agree that it's been a good year, and we've all worked hard. But, recent changes in the market have placed new demands on our company, so we need to suck it up for one more year and go with an (almost) cost-of-living raise, although that won't defeat the income tax & healthcare cost increases. Big raise next year, for sure!

Anyway, the council meeting went well last night, and I had some veggie pizza for supper. It's not exactly a double sausage & pepperoni pizza with extra cheese, but it wasn't terrible.

I hope y'all have a great day!

Good morning, everyone!

I discovered last night that my academic adviser accidentally misled me. When you view a degree audit through my college, each category will either show up with a plus sign or a minus sign. A plus means you finished that section and a minus means you need to complete more. Well, last semester before I dropped a class, it was showing up with a plus sign in a section when my adviser checked my degree audit. Then after I dropped it, the sign changed to a minus and neither of us knew. That meant that I had to take an extra class in order to graduate. Thankfully, I checked my audit last night on my own and noticed that something wasn't right. I now have to change my schedule but I think everything will work out. I am lucky I caught the error otherwise I would have to go an extra semester for simply one class!

My first day was good yesterday. I think I am actually going to like the class that I had in the morning. The professor is nice and the material seemed interesting enough.

I am going to have a busy day today. There are so many things I need to get done!

Have a good one everyone!

Second Tuesday of the year, and counting!

Had a lot of trouble getting my nice new artificial tree back into its storage bag this weekend, and was trying to think of a better way. Mr. came up with the idea of using a big, round trash barrel to store it, so we got one last night. I'll try repacking the tree this weekend. It's in two sections, so hopefully I can just set the bottom section down into the barrel, ease the top section in beside it, and cover the whole thing against dust. If this works, it'll make it much easier to set up and take down each year!

Good for you, keeping an eye on things! You saved yourself a lot of trouble.

I am a sucker for all animals big and small! I cannot emphasize enough on how much I love animals. In fact, at least once a month I have to go to Petco just to see all the dogs and cats up for adoption even though I cannot have another one right now. It is a rescue group they have set up there. I told them I hope they don't mind that I am just looking and they know I cannot adopt one now. They said they really do need as many people as possible just to interact with them so they can adapt to people and not be fearful so I guess I am doing good just to come in there and help out with that! I certainly don't mind doing it either! =)

Oh, well--the life of a teacher! I will leave the computer on, but will be watching the football game later and popping in every once in a while. Plus, I have to fit dinner in there somewhere. TTYL
I hope you are out of pain real soon!!!

Oh yeah, Seawaters, a follow up to my love for animals. It just happened again right now while watching the news. I just saw on there that a kangaroo was loose on the streets and I did my usual baby talk and said, "Oh, I want one"! Wayne just laughed. I do this allllll the time with every animal!!! If I followed through with getting all the animals I desired I would end up on that Animal Hoarders show. I do have some self control though. =)
