Hey family, I've been soooo busy with school its insane. This Friday I'm leaving at 1 to go on a field trip in cloquet (AGAIN). My professor said we'll get back at 6 at the latest, but probably sooner. I'm not really sure what we should do about this, because I will most likely be back in time for bob to pick me up and drive us to the airport, but not enough time to go home, get the car, and drive you myself. What do you think we should do?

Hello family! I still can't find the scrubbies, so when I go to the grocery store this week I might just pick up one. I'm not sure if you check the weather around here, but after you left it got really cold and snowed again. We had one of the coldest days in April, which is really weird because we had one of the hottest days in March. Its warming up a little, but its still below freezing at night, and the highs are around the low 40s. It's predicted to snow again early this week. The snow isn't staying on the ground at all, but I'd LIKE it if it warmed up a bit.
When I came home today I found a dead mouse in the hallway, and all the traps are empty. It seems that our cats are better at it than anything else. All the animals are doing fine. I give the cats that special food once and a while, and let the bird out when I can. Maxine hasn't thrown up at all since you've been gone. Oh yeah, I went to Target the other day to pick up pills, and I bought the cats a new brush; they LOVE it.
I've been going to Bob's, but I'm still at home most of the time. The other night I made us some almond milk drink I got from an indian cookbook. I'm planning on going to the grocery store to get some supplies soon. I'm going to make Bombay Aloo (a potato starting dish), stuffed peppers, and mango lassi (to use up the yogurt). All of those are indian dishes, so we'll see how that all goes.

I'll try to update once and a while so you know what sort of things are going on here at home. After we dropped you off from the airport, we ran over to that national wildlife refuge. They were going to close in 20 min, but we really just wanted to check the place out. We saw some wild turkeys, and their exhibits inside the visitor center. I'm glad we went there; it was a good time. Besides that, nothing new. Bob and I are going to move the stove into the garage tomorrow when he comes over. The bird was mad at me when I came home because we left him here for a day in the cage and I think he was punishing me for putting him in there. I THINK he was trying to dive-bomb me, but I wasn't sure.
I'm trying to do a little cleaning, but I can't find those scrubbies we bought ANYWHERE. I looked all over, and I'm getting really frustrated. So tess, if you see this first.. could you find out from the parents where they are?
That is all.

This really sucks. RAIN!!! I've been working my butt off for 6 days, and on my first day off, rain. 70% chance pretty much all day. I was planning on going for a hike around on their trails, and maybe take some pictures, but that probably won't happen. I know some people were going to go swimming, so they won't be happy about this. Well, maybe I can just get started on studying, play some ds, read a little.. man...pooply. Maybe next weekend will be better.

|08:21 pm - summer school...begin!|
I couldn't think of anything to do with the rest of my day, so I thought I would run to the computer lab. Typical. I told myself I wouldn't rely on these, but they're open 24/7... so... we'll see.
Many of you may already know that I am currently in Cloquet, MN, at the Cloquet Forestry Center for a 3 week, 4 credit summer school field session. wee! Apart from being in an extremely unknown (thus uncomfortable) place, it's been quite fun. Today we ate pizza, salad, grapes, and delicious cookies. The cooks asked us how many vegetarians there are. I think 4 others raised their hands, so I'm not all alone. We can walk up to the front of the line for food, because they make SPECIAL food for us! VIP service for the herbivores!
My two roomates are nice. They're both in the Fisheries and Wildlife program, so no help asking for help on homework. Though, I doubt these classes will be that difficult. I realized very early that this place could get very draining if I don't make some sort of friends. Luckily, there are a couple people I know in the Forstry program, so I should be fine. I think I forgot HOW to make friends, but maybe I'm just uncomfortable in this new place with all these strange college students.
I've talked to a few others with boyfriends, and we all pretty much feel the same way. 3 weeks away is longer than what we're used to. I keep hearing about people planning things for their weekend off, like camping with their boys, and it's getting me all jealous.
Anyway, I'm going to have to wake up at 6:00am tomorrow. I better start getting used to that.

This year I've been busy!
Last month I committed genocide... Sorry about that, yoshimoto_muira (-5000 points). In September I gave change to a homeless guy (19 points). Last Tuesday I gave manowar82 a wet willie, then I took it back (-5 points). Last Thursday I pushed mudge112 in the mud (-17 points). Last Saturday I gave mantid a kidney (1000 points).
Overall, I've been naughty (-4003 points). For Christmas I deserve a spanking!
