Monday Madness

Hello, strangers! How the hell are ya? I swear, I feel like I have been away FOREVER! I never meant for it to be so long, but I think you'll understand a bit when you hear all of the crazy things that have been going on in my life. This post will probably be all over the place, but I have so much to tell you. First of all....
I really and truly did miss you all! My Reader is overflowing with things that I have missed, and I hope to get caught up on all the happenings in your lives as soon as I can. I can't wait! I love having plenty of reading material, and you all always keep my supply up.

Next, I finally finished school!
I am officially a graduate with a BS in Occupational Safety & Health as of June 30th. How about them apples?! And even better, I managed to finish with a 4.0 GPA so I graduated Summa Cum Laude. I know that probably means nothing to anyone but me, but I'm glad I managed to do it!
You would not believe how much of a weight is off of my shoulders with school done. I did absolutely NOTHING last weekend just because I could! It was so funny, but I kept thinking, "What time is my next assignment due?" Then I'd do this evil laugh and remember that I never have to turn in another thing. I think my mom was a little surprised that I actually finished. When I called them the night I turned in my final assignments, I asked her, "You didn't think I'd ever really finish, did you?" Her answer was a very honest, "Nope!" Gotta love Mom.

The new family member we got during my last post has moved on to a wonderful family that has two kids who are spoiling her rotten! They fell in love with her so much that I couldn't resist letting them have Sadie, and she's enjoying the hell out of them. Here she is in her new home the first night there with a brand new fancy collar and bed after they wore her out.
It was meant to be, I think. I'm just glad we managed to save another one from the shelter and the fate that happens to so many there. She's a great dog and she has completed their family.

I have a lot to tell you about what has happened with our shelter too, but I'll save that for another day. For now, I have a ton of reading to catch up on and I need to decide what my long-term career goals are. That's the biggest problem because I'm meeting some obstacles at work so we'll see what I end up doing moving forward. Updating the resume is step one though, whether I move around in the same company or move on. Geez, it's been FOREVER since I did a resume.

Hope you all have a great week! I'm so glad to be back, and I'll be keeping up much better now that I have less responsibilities on a regular basis. Oh, and I don't think I pointed out that little box on the left over there before. You can get my posts right in your email box now! Just put in your email address and it's magic, right in your email whenever I post. You know ya wanna... So go do it. Now I am off to read some awesome blogs and get some lunch since my stomach is currently gnawing on my backbone.
