I started out the weekend with absolutely no plans but Sunday ended up being fairly busy.  Saturday I mostly just sat around and watched really bad tv in between playing around online.  Sunday, my mom and I went to a car show.  It was only supposed to be classic cars and while they did have a lot of classics, they also had a lot of newer ones too - as in, only a few years old.  I wondered why they were there.  And then there were older cars but not exactly classics.  It was a good way to spend the afternoon and the best part was that it was free!  We could have gotten a free lunch there too but chose not to.  After that, I ran a couple of errands and then had dinner at my mom's house.

While we were at the car show, I got to pet the softest little doxie!  Her name is Daisy and she was the friendliest little dog.  I still can't get over how soft and silky her fur is.  I've never pet a dog that soft.  Now I'm wishing I would've asked what doggie shampoo her owner uses on her so my boys would be like that.  Their fur is soft but not that silky soft.

Today is my friend's birthday.  To celebrate, she wants to go to a Men's Revue.  Basically, we'll be seeing a generic version of the Chippendale's.  She finally seems to be getting over the ex after an unwanted divorce 3 1/2 years ago and is now very much living the single life.

I start my new job on Wednesday.  Actually, I'm just doing some training Weds. and Thurs., I won't start my new job until August 22nd.  After thinking about it for a little bit, I realized this job will be a great way to see all my old friends from the first semester.  Not every professor uses the testing center but the large majority do.  While the testing center isn't a library, it has to remain quiet like one while students complete their tests so I won't get to talk to them much but that's ok, at least I'll still get to see them!  I've only talked just briefly to two of my friends from school over the summer so it'll be good to see them all again.

I start school in exactly 2 weeks!  I'm excited but nervous.  At least I know what to expect this time and how everything works.  What makes me most nervous is that I'll taking one more class than last semester and I'll be working on top of that.  In addition, one class requires 10 hours of online work per week.  I hope I haven't overextended myself.

It's going to take some time to acclimate myself to school again.  With that in mind, I'll be taking a one to two week bloggy break.  I didn't have much luck last time I asked but I'm gonna ask again.  Is anyone interested in guest posting for me?  You can write about pretty much anything you want - your own experience in college, the great summer you had (or didn't have), your favorite vacation, why you love your pets so much - the possibilities are simply endless!  I know not everyone appreciates guest posters but I figure it's better than to just have an empty blog for a week or two.  If you're interested, leave me a comment saying so and I'll get back to you.  Thanks!

That car show sounds like it was fun and entertaining. I went to a couple and although I'm not that much into cars, some of them were quite impressive! It's a nice way to stroll around outside and maybe learn something or meet someone nice. We can all use more nice people in our lives, right?
Good luck with your job on Wednesday and I hope you will enjoy it. Have fun seeing some of your college buddies again ;-)
I need to quit spending so much time on the computer too - yet, somehow keep getting sucked into just one more thing online (lately it's been dog rescue groups) I don't know how that happens? I guess there is just too much to see and learn on the internet. I'm ok now, but come fall/winter and the weather cools down, Giszy and I will be outtahere in a jiffy
because it will be nice to explore again after being dormant inside for so long!
Have a great day and enjoy your week! Good luck with school and your job!

Meg said...

Wow that is a lot going on girl!

Have fun at Men's Revue, I would definitely have a blast if I went. ;)

Sounds great with the new job and school starting again. I'd be happy to guest post if you'd like. Just let me know.

Lots of exciting and busy times ahead. Hope you enjoy the Men's REvue - this lady is way too old for that stuff:)

Why don't you do a few pre-posts to fill in some of the days. Maybe some pics of the pups - Wordless Wednesday, Silent Saturday. I would offer to do a post, but trust me, I am very busy right now with this new addition:)

The college I work at, and my son's goes to, starts on August 22nd also. I'm pretty much alone for the 3 week break at work and I don't like that at all. So looking forward the the instructors and students coming back.

Good luck with your job training this week. I know you'll do great with both the job and a new school year! :-) I can't believe how fast last school year went for all of us.

Have a Great rest of the week, Sprinkles!
PS I'll come up with a post for you to consider soon. Something light with pictures from my new camera and the forest I'm investigating... if that's ok?
