Madison

I can’t believe it’s been one week today since we said goodbye to our sweet “Mooch” (aka Madison). I miss her every single day, and I know that Tim and BlackJack do too. There is comfort in knowing that she is no longer suffering, and has joined my sweet Gemma over the rainbow bridge. The sadness I feel is for those of us that she left behind. There will never be another dog like our  Maddie Girl. Tim took the above photo (he’s got skills!).

My first class of the semester went well. The professor did a PowerPoint presentation with some general psychology information, and it reminded me why I love psych so much! If he posts the slides, I will share some of them here so you can see what I’m talking about. The rest of this class will be online (whenever someone gets around to making it accessible–time is wasting here, people!), which should be helpful, because it’s one less class I have to get to on a certain day, at a particular time.

I would like to find a job that will work around my crazy class schedule (which won’t be easy), because I am only available during very narrow time frames (and how many employers want to deal with that?). Even something where I could work a few hours every week would be helpful. Tim busts his ass every day, and I want to pitch in. Of course, part of me thinks that’s a totally insane idea, because I literally spend hours and hours (and hours) on school work every day (even when I’m not in class). Basically, if I’m not doing the good ‘housewife’ stuff, I am studying. There is no free time. If I add a job to that, I’m really going to feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day. I’m going to take it one step at a time. Keep my eyes open for an opportunity, and then I can always give it a shot. If it’s too much, and my other responsibilities begin to suffer, I will have to make the necessary changes. All I can do is try!

Tim and I are in the process of trying to decide whether we should shell out the $ to get our old car back in shape (it needs quite a bit of work), or, if we should cut our losses and buy another car. It would be another used vehicle, so, I feel as though we would be taking a bit of a gamble on what may be wrong with it. At least with our Toyota, we have a fairly good idea of what its issues are. Decisions, decisions…

I’m still dealing with the cold that I first came down with on Christmas Eve. It’s a sneaky bugger (pun intended), because I start to feel better, and think it’s gone, only to have it rear its ugly head all over again. And again. Think I’m on round three (or maybe four), hopefully this is the last one!

So, how was your week?
