Is it Friday yet?

We got some good news today - Meg found out she was accepted to Doane College in Crete and she also got a $6000 scholarship through Phi Theta Kappa. I know, I know... We talked this week about how she was going to go ahead and take the QUAST test and go to school part time. She seemed to feel pretty good about the whole thing. Then today she found out about Doane. I have mixed emotions, to tell the truth, it seems as if she's going to be a professional student, but $6000 is nothing to sneeze at for tuition money. She's already talked to financial advisers at Doane and there are work study programs available and she shouldn't have problems finding a place to live. It kind of bites that she has to go full time to use the scholarship, but that's just the way it is. At least she has the opportunity, so she's a giant step ahead of me. I'm glad all the time she spent working on PTK stuff paid off with the scholarship.

I feel like I've spent the last 2 days shampooing dogs. They all (with the exception of Toby, of course) found a really good doggie smell somewhere in the back yard so they've all had to be bathed - some of them twice. What a job! Even Toby got a bath tonight, he didn't have that particular stink that the others all shared, but he had a bad enough smell of his own! They're all so shiny and soft now, too bad it won't last! I should have taken some pictures. Buttercup and Jojo just look like drowned rats when their hair gets wet, so funny! Buttercup absolutely hates baths though. Hates the blow dryer (I didn't even try tonight), and hates being toweled off. She sounds like a motorcycle revving its engine the whole time I was drying her off and just for good measure she gave me a good look at the old pearly whites... Crabby thing!

I've just been feeling like a wet rag lately. Tired and achy. Last night I went to bed right at midnight, well okay, maybe it was 12:30, but I didn't get up until 1:30 today, and that was only because I had to run some errands before work. I didn't think I was going to make it through my entire shift I was so tired, but I ended up working until 3 a.m., with one long break. My speed isn't up to snuff though, I feel like I'm wading through Jell-O. Maybe it's the Elavil my rheumatologist started me on. Ugh, I'm such a whiner.

I got my Black and Decker Scum Buster - finally! I love it. It make short work out of scrubbing the shower this weekend. I wish I had bought it years ago. Who knew cleaning a shower could be so much fun? LOL!

Well, I guess that's it. More stuff going on, but nothing I feel the need to let the world know about. We're all still here and slogging along as usual. Later!

Not long ago I went looking for something like a Scum Buster. I had no luck at all finding anything. I remember when even the cleaning product section of the grocery store had scrubbers like that. Alas, I am still without. *sniffle*
