Poor Teeth...

I admit...I've been bad. Instead of getting my teeth cleaned 2 times per year, I've had them cleaned every 2 years. And now I pay the price. A whopping 5 teeth need work. Yikes. I had never had a cavity before this ....now I have 5. Poor parents, but I'm very thankful that they still pay for my medical bills etc. Poor teeth. I promise I will floss as much as I should now, and no more sodas! I already brush fairly often. *Sigh* How embarassing...

Baby Gourd

Well I guess my expedition into gourd-parenting was successful. Behold the baby gourd! I think I'll name this one Ginny, but I don't think I'll name all of them. This one was the first one really to start growing. I should go water them now.

In other news I'm starting to get everything ready for my apartment. I purchased a lamp today. I can't wait to move up there. I can't get a dog....no dog, no dog, no dog. Although...if a good dog crossed my path who needed a home...I just might take it.

An official Post

Well, I haven't updated in awhile, but not much has changed. I still don't have my vet school application finished...although I've officially asked Dr. LaVergne if he would write a recommendation for me. He said he would, now I'm just waiting for him to finish it. I think I'm going to ask Dr. Powell and Dr. Jack to write my other two. Dr. LaVergne has seen me with small animals...Dr. Jack with horses...and Dr. Powell from a leadership/academic perspective. *Sigh* I guess I should give them some warning, and I need to finish my part of the application. I want to have it finished and turned in by my 21st b-day.

Work is still work. It seems like there has been more sick animals this year than last. On Friday, 2 animals passed away, and today we had 1. It's always so sad, but Dr. LaVergne does everything he can for an animal before euthanizing it. I think he's more aggressive seeking treatment with animals than other veterinarians...which means fewer animals die preventable, premature deaths. Very good indeed.

In other news, I finished the last installment of Harry Potter. It featured some very interesting twists and was highly entertaining. I recommend reading them all. Such a good story...

Cheerio! It's bed time for me. I have to work (as usual)

Flower

Look what greeted me when I came home from work! One of my gourd vines has 4 blossoms on it! 3 female + 1 male (the female flowers have a bulb which the gourd will grow from). I'm so excited! I wonder when the gourds will start forming. I was too impatient to wait for a bee to do its thing...so I took a a piece of cotton and dabbed the male flower and then a female flower...I wonder if it worked? I wish my other vines were ready...I wanted to try crossing the typs of gourds to see what would happen. I hope the picture sticks around this time...

Update

Well, I've been back from vacation. Lol, it was nice, but now it's back to the daily grind. :D Work is good though. I like it, but I'm ready to go back to school. I feel up to doing stuff in the evening. I guess when I get old I'll have to find stuff to do during the evenings..like kid's baseball games etc. I like being busy. Weeeellll..that's it. Nothing interesting to say...

I hope everybody is doing well. <3
