School is kicking my ass but in a good way. I have three great professors and a shit-load of homework but it's interesting, engaging homework that I am enjoying so I will let them live for now.
Our Australian exchange student is an absolute delight! She's fit right in with the family (she's a total smartass!) and is getting along like gangbusters with daughter. I don't think they've stopped talking since Friday night and they are plotting a way for daughter to visit her when she is in Australia over next Christmas. (That's a WHOLE 'nuther post.) I'll post some funny pics as soon as I can find my card reader. I suspect it is in the same black hole as all the single socks we are missing.
The idiot dog stepped on something sharp and cut the pad on her paw on Monday so she has two stitches in her foot and a bandage slightly smaller than a refrigerator on it. She also has to wear the Cone Of Shame for two weeks so she is depressed and angsty. Her pouting is almost as irritating as daughters!
Thing 1 got his braces on yesterday. I didn't time this at all well seeing as how his first band concert of the year is tonight and he plays the trumpet. Hopefully all the metal in his mouth won't screw up his playing or shred the inside of his mouth. He might have to fake playing - trumpet lip-syncing so to speak - until he gets used to it.
The girls and I saw Marley & Me last night and I bawled like a baby. It made me feel like a total moron since I've read the damn book and I KNEW what would happen. Good movie but don't wear mascara if you go see it.
Gotta go, I have a policy memo to Obama to write for my poli-sci class.....
