The fall of an empire...well, a cousin anyway.

Last night, Jenn made an awsome dinner. She was in the kitchen and I was in the living room on the couch...I had just finished and was letting the mashed taters settle (great taters!!!). The phone rings. I see on the TV Caller ID (very nifty, by the way) that it's Kim. I yell to Jenn that it's her sister, so she heads towards the phone with mashed taters in hand and next thing I know, she's taking a HUGE dive to the floor! She'd tripped over Maggie! The phone was still ringing, so she picked it up (still lying on the floor mind you) and just LAUGHED! All the while, her dogs, her loving doting dogs, aren't checking on her or licking her face in no, they're face deep in glorious mashed potatoes! Damn, and I was looking forward to those tomorrow for left overs!

I paid my tuition the other day!!! All by myself!!! For those of you who don't know, last semester, Jenn had to pry me out of the house and to the campus to enroll, cuz I wasn't doing it myself!!! I had tests taken for reading and math skills (ask her for the story on that one, she tells it better), enroll, AND buy books (gag). This go around, I enrolled (Jenn didn't know), I paid my tuition (She had no clue I had) , AND I bought my books (she found out later) ALL ON MY OWN!!! Thank you to everyone for the money that was donated, I look forward to this semester with a morbid excitement (oddly). :)


I wake up at 5 in the morning EVERY weekday. So, I try to sleep as much as possible so that I survive it. I have always woke up some what randomly throughout the nights for as long as I can remember. In fact, I can't remember getting a FULL night's sleep in years! Anyway, last night, I randomly woke up and didn't know why (as usual), so I tried to go back to sleep, but i smelt something foul. See, when Jen (my slave driver) is away at work, the dogs sleep in MY room for the night. The girls were in the room and let's just say they know how to clear one! In their old age, it's not uncommon for them to smell like, well, death. Back to the stench. I just figured one of the girls had ripped one. Then, I heard a very upsetting sound! You know that gurgle in your stomach that you get when you're rushing to the bathroom and are afraid you're not going to make it? THAT SOUND! So, I turn on the light...bad idea! Settled on my bamboo floor rug were two large (not solid) piles know what it was. I cleaned what I could and sprayed ungodly amounts of "chocolate body mist" all over my room then went back to bed. When I woke up, the smell was back to being foul and I felt like a tired mess. All in a day's life I guess...
