Pumpkin carving

The boys carved their pumpkins yesterday and they did a fine job. I was impressed.

Raindrops keep falling on my head

I was looking at my phone and I've collected a few cloud photos over the last few months and thought I would finally share them. The last two look a bit like mammatus clouds, which are more rare. It's a wonder I don't drive off the road sometimes. ;)

Rude food.

I made a sandwich to eat last night. Not a great sandwich, but an ok one.
This is how I'm repaid.

Yes, we have another cat

Date: July 4, 2010
Time: 9:00 PM
Location: Safeway parking lot

I had just finished a trip to Safeway (hungry, you know). Walking across the parking lot I hear "meOW, MEOW, MEow" With my lightning deduction skills I figured it was a cat. So as a magnet is drawn to iron filings, or other magnets, but definitely not aluminum, I walked across the parking lot toward the sound. MEOW closer MEOW closer MEOW closer until I get to a tree. A tall tree. A straight tree. A tree with not many branches. Hmmmmm. I look around and finally see the kitten in the tree. What a loud noise for such a small creature! I climb up in the tree a few feet off the ground. I worry that the kitten will fall. Before too long he ventures far enough down that I can grab. Fortunately I have nerves of steel and arms of steel for he bites and kicks and generally freaks out. I have to hold him with both hands to prevent more scratches and it's then I realize it's not going to be easy to get out of the tree. I don't want to hand the cat to one of the boys because it is scared to death and they will drop it when it starts scratching. Finally I get turned enough to jump down, scraping my elbow in the process. I walk home with the kitten pressed against me. We put him in a carrier for the first night but now he has accepted us. He likes to play rough but he's very cute. I wanted to name him "Killer" but the boys decided on "Alvin". But no chipmunks.

Oh this child

Yesterday my son asks, "Mom, would you get me some juice?"
I said, "No, we are out at the moment"
His eyes open wide, then he puts his hand on my shoulder and says, "Tell my wife I love her"

Hey, is it summer?

Nope, not yet. The wind keeps blowing and when that is not happening, it's raining or snowing. Classes are finally over and I actually survived with Bs and one A-. Now I'm trying to get caught up on everything I stopped doing the last 3 months. Soon, I think I will find the floor in my house.
Not much else going on yet but I leave you with this.....

Oh my

School must be kicking my butt. I think it is. I am way busy but I got yelled at for not blogging. You know who you are.......
It's kind of funny to look through my posts though. Let's see, didn't make any granny squares, haven't been eating better. I don't want to even look any more.
I'm just trying to make it through the semester and actually get all my homework and my research paper done. I missed Chuck Norris' birthday. Sorry Chuck!

I just joined something

Not the smartest move but it should be fun anyway. A granny a day. Meet me at Mike's is a great blog that I read everyday and so I thought it would be fun to try this. I know how to do basic granny squares so it should be too hard. I also have a blanket to finish so this will help me make some progress on that.

It's a monday

Classes are starting next week and I think it's going to be a tough semester. I hope I'm wrong. I haven't studied chemistry since high school and that was 25 years ago. Oh dear. I just keep telling myself that I'm smart, I'm smart, I'm smart. It will work, won't it?

Since my son asked what my New Year's revolution was going to be, I'll tell you too. I need to get healthier and hopefully that includes losing just a little bit of weight. Or a lot of bit. I'm not picky. I also need to get some sort of plan in place for my life for the next couple years or so. I feel kind of lost right now and it's because I don't have any clear direction to head. I'm going to finish (I hope) this degree in December but I'm not sure what I'll do after that. That bothers me.
