The sight of 100+ student papers sitting on my desk, waiting to be graded was daunting, but kind of enjoyable too. It is interesting to look at the world through the eyes of a second-year undergraduate student.
My dearest husband is nearing the completion of his doctorate and burning the midnight oil to finish some last minute details in time for his defence next week. I am so excited for him, this degree has been ten years in the making and he has done it all while working full time in private practice and dealing with his own diagnosis of adult ADHD. He is an inspiration.
My ten-year old Princess Cat is also feeling much better. She is off of the morphine she was prescribed for pain and appears to be comfortable. This is evidenced by her sleeping on my head once again (after several worrisome days of her hiding in the basement). Her illness cost us about $900.00, but she is worth ever penny.
After spending a night in the ER with my mom, I realized was that my cat was able to get much more timely care than my mother!
Of course, my mother's care did not require any out of pocket payments....
here's to tomorrow!
