let's see. john and I finally got our blasted stimulus money- 6 months late.

that was a real treat. it's nice not to be desperately poor anymore.
we got a dog for my birthday.

I love this dog! Dalton is a human trapped in a dog's  body. A needy child to be exact. He's a beagle around 8 years old. the first 2 weeks were rough trying to adapt to him, and him to us. john got pretty frustrated and wanted to take him back, but I looked up at him with tears in my eyes and said "you're nOT taking MY dog!" things are doing MUCH better now. We love him SO much. he's perfect for our family.

I walk through the lounge, turn the corner, and there was an out of order sign on the bathroom door. So i hightailed it out of there, thinking maybe i could get the key to the other bathroom across campus from my supervisor. She kindly suggested that i just use the bathroom that was in the classroom- the bathroom that she always uses, so it's always clean. So, I took her up on her offer. Before, I used to just not liking to use a shared bathroom because I 'm afraid i'll leave a toxic smell, and that would embarrass the heck out of me. So, I used to flush immediatley after I felt I had
"emptied" all that i had. I did it on this…
