Keeping Busy

Well, in all honesty I'm not keeping *that* busy, but I should be. School starts again in a couple of weeks, and I have a nice big paper that I could be preparing for. But somehow I keep managing to put it off. Anybody that's read much of this blog knows that I am the queen of procrastination, and this assignment will be no different. The paper is for a Business Law class that I will be taking (a week-long intensive course), and if I was smart, I'd get a head start on it. But there are good shows on TV, good books to be read, and good stuff to surf around for on the 'Net. So I have yet to do any actual work yet.

The boys are doing fine. It's still weird for me to say the boys and mean only two boys instead of three. The numbers feel off now, as if the order in the house has been disturbed. I'm hoping to convince my mom to let me bring in a third dog (you know, to restore order to the galaxy) but I'm not holding out a ton of hope. We'll see - so far this is a work in progress. By no means do I think that I could EVER replace Quigley (give me some credit please), but I think a new dog would keep my mind off of things. Of course, training Billy would accomplish the same thing, but a new puppy would be WAY more fun!

I got a new CD yesterday, it's a Broadway musical soundtrack. Definitely not for young kids, it's called "Avenue Q." It's a RIOT! Very racy stuff, but pretty funny and the tunes are catchy. For anybody that is into musicals at all, I highly recommend it. I got it for a good price on eBay, so you don't have to spend a lot on it either. It seems to be a take on Sesame Street (with puppets and everything), but definitely NOT Sesame Street content.

Other than that, not much is new. Work has slowed down a bit, since the people I was covering for are both back. That definitely makes my life a bit easier. I've had enough to keep me on my toes, but not enough to make me feel stressed. Just the way a job should be :)

Well, this will be a short post . . . just wanted everyone to know that I'm surviving. Thanks for all of the emails and notes about Quigley, it really has helped me a lot.

The more you do on the paper today, the less you'll have to do tomorrow.

Oh, BTW, I'm the queen of procrastination too and with that little tidbit I became the queen of hypocrisy LOL.
Hugs :)
