We got our first dusting of snow last week but it didn't stay long. It was a nice reminder of the wonderful snow to come. I just love snow at christmas time it makes everything seem less dull and cold. We also put up the christmas lights on the house, I will get a picture soon. My 13 year old brother climbed up on the roof to do it and was very proud until he realized that he forgot to check the last set of lights before putting them up and half of them didn't work. So back on the roof he went. The christmas spirit is starting, I am loving Micheal Buble's christmas album and have heard some good things about Justin Bieber/Usher's christmas album. It will soon be time to get out the house decorations but I think we will start with the snowmen to encourage more snow to come for us to play in!

I finished my first placement for school last week and will miss all the little ones. I was happy to come back to my job for sure since I missed all the kids there too. It was nice to have new songs and games to play with them. The semester will be all wrapped up within the next threee weeks and it will be nice to have some time before the next semester without any homework to do.

I am still working at Petsmart and loving it. I really enjoy meeting all the customers and their pets as well as helping them find products that work for them. Of course I am not above sending them elsewhere if we do not carry what they are looking for. My cashier skills are getting better too and hopefully they will continue to grow. I am looking forward to getting my dog training in the new year as well. Overall it seems like one of the best part-time jobs I have ever had.

Sorry the crew and I have not been around much to comment but we have been reading and keeping up with everyone's blogs. We also joined the Christmas Card exchange so you can send a card to Blair or to Jack, Sophie, Koda, Indy and myself or all of us together. We look forward to sending out our cards as well. A big thanks to everyone who helped put it together, it is a wonderful way for bloggers to connect.

A Little Bit of Everything

I hope that everyone had a great halloween! I dressed up to handout candy and of course dressed up Indy too. We waited ever so patiently all night but only had 20 trick or treaters.

I am amazed at how fast time is going, only one more week and a half left of my placement. I will certainly miss the kids but I will be happy to get back to my daycare! I am almost completed all of my assignments and am not feeling too rushed. I am keeping up with all my other classes and keeping my grades up which is a wonderful feeling. I am even looking forward to signing up for next semesters classes and a sign language class. I am just loving the idea of signing and eventually being able to sign fluently enough to get a job within a deaf school. That is my new goal!

Work at petsmart is still going good although I swear that I make as much as I spend! After cleaning up after the kitties I have finally coming to the realization that I am indeed ALLERGIC TO KITTIES! I know I'm shocked too! I have always just written off the itchy eyes and nose to the cats shedding and having them up in my face but on sunday I had all 10 cats out of their cages at the same time and eventually had to open a window in order to breathe. So this writes off any cat hoarding I had planned in my life but it certainly will not stop me from owning cats that is for sure.
