So I had my first solid off day from work in weeks. I get Thursday off too which is great. I have been filling in so much for the past 6 weeks, that it has been a really good respite. We had 130 adoption during the adopt a thon. Including Montana and Goldre which I am totally delighted about. We had 1 dog get returned on Tuesday. Hopefully there won't be many more. Miles was going to go but it fell through.

I went to Harmony House for the first time in over a month. It was great so relaxing. Burtona, one of the cats, had to be put down cause she had lost so much weight and they couldn't get her stable enough for a feeding tube. She was a sweet heart. We have some kittens to which are cute but a little shy.

I started rereading all my Narnia fics I have saved over at I am really longing for a nice long fic about the 4 pevensies, wether it's them staying in Narnia after Caspian or one set in The Golden Ages. Any recomendations?

So I get to sleep in some more tomorrow or should I say today since it's like 1:30.

So was anyone really surprised by Governor Rod's arrest? I mean in the beginning he did good but recently?

I didn't go to Harmony House for two weeks, the first week because I just needed to catch up on sleep and didn't go. Last week-Tuesday I didn't go cause I was not comfortable with having to take a bus after 8 up addison than down narragansett. Thursday because I visited Grandma in the hospital. We were going to on Wednesday but visiting hours are over at 8 and we were still at Elizabeth's by 7:30. Grandma-is actually elizabeth's grandma but...

But anyways back to Harmony-Monroe had to get put down probably two weeks ago due to health issues. He was an older gray tabby who was diabetic. He was really sweet.

And Newton at PAWS got adopted (sadly without Fabian, those two were hysterical together, but they loved one another) Both are chihuahuas.

Milton Beryle - a sometimes ill tempered orange tabby at HH (does not like other cats) attacked Wilma today (she's like 1 third his size) I checked her over and she seemed fine. She's a white calico so any blood would have been spotted easily especially cause I ran my hands over her. Yeah apparently not. Bout 2 minutes later I notice a whole bunch of blood on the floor. And i mean a lot. She had a puncture on her leg, but it was still a lot of blood for one puncture wound. They took her to see the vet just in case cause it looked like she was getting a blood blister. She had stopped bleeding after I put pressure on her leg for a few seconds. It was nothing big just a check to make  sure.

SO....I got a part time job at PAWS as an animal caregiver, I work like 3-4 days a week. Its so cool, and then I volunteer the rest of the time so nothing really has changed.

Lots of changes and bad news:

We have lost several cats at Harmony House:

Besides Wendy and Mary Joe who had to be put down weeks ago, we lost Relish a black cat, that suddenly died one morning as Jennifer checked on her. We lost Tuffy and King Friday in the same week.

Tuffy had to be rushed to the emergency vet, when they finished with the test, she was in total kidney failure and had shown no previous signs, they put her down.

One of Harmony's staff saw King eating cat litter which is a sign of something bad and when they took him in the test were not good and they had to put him down.

At PAWS, we found out that Otis one of our dogs had to get put down for medical reasons a little while ago. And Jordache a beautiful Himalayan had to be put down for a number of health reasons none of them good.

I have yet to get my first paycheck but it should be happening soon, hopefully.

Random things:

I have not yet been able to buy Anything Goes, John Barrowman's autobiography and am not to happy about it. I have to go by Breaking Dawn sometime soon as I wasn't able to go to the Midnight opener.

Me and my dad have gone to opening night shows for the last 4 weeks in a row.

*Journey to the Center of the Earth
*Dark Night, which I want to see in IMAX and was probably my favorite.
*X-Files I Want to Believe
*The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor

All real good movies some more than others but still....I think we are going to another on Friday-maybe.

Oh and this morning when my dad drove me to work, I saw the saddest thing. Someone had hit an opossum, which normally would not have been as gut wrenching but the real sad thing, the part that makes me hate people is that I could see her dead babies, they were on the road all around her.

End Notes:

Saw Journey's End, don't know how I feel about the ending. I loved the goodbye to Donna but Rose's? I don''t whether to love it or dislike it.

Saw Continuum, just finished it like an hour ago, more on that later.

*I think this might be my longest post to date. How exciting.

Okay so I am actually going to prom now. Elizabeth and I along with Becca are going dress shopping on Friday. So in short, I have to buy a ticket. Wish me luck:)

In other news I got to PAWs today and we have a dog name Trisha. It was so weird whenever I would say her name. Also Zeus-the Mastiff-that went home yesterday, is being RETURNED!!! I was not happy with that. Frankie a 1 year old black lab is hopefully being adopted^_^. Sheeba a 10 year old Akita that has Kennel Cough is doing a lot better, she is almost like a whole different dog. Much more energy.

At Harmony-Meredith Grey, the friendliest cat on the 3rd floor was adopted over the weekend. I also may be going there on Sunday for a 3 mile marathon-maybe, it depends since my dads birthday is that saturday.

I had my Spanish IB exam, I hope to God I got at least a 3 on it. It was like one of the tests we have in class so maybe. I have Paper 1&2 in IB Biology tomorrow. Wish me luck!!!

Plus I have finally read Twilight and New Moon after years of my friends telling me to. OMG I love them!! Hopefully someone will bring Eclipse tomorrow. Hopefully!

WOW. It's been awhile since my last post. I have been busy. I have been volunteering at Harmony House since the beginning of the month and have fllen in love with the cats. I have some favorites though and want to adopt a few of them. I have already concluded that as soon as I am able to I am adopting a cat from there-hopefuly in the next couple of years.

I went to a PAWS orientation on Sunday and have spent over 20hours with the dogs combined in the last 5 days. I will be doing more next week since I am off school Wednesday and Thursday-so that means 20 hours in those two days alone along with the 6 hours from Monday and Friday and 3 hours combined from Tuesday and Thursday which I will gladly do as long as I don't get sick.

There are 2 dogs that I have def. fallen in love with. 

Kitsune is  a pembroke Welsh Corgi who is like 5 1/2 and if I could I would take him home. He is the perfect dog for me and my family. He is so laid back and a cuddler. He is sorta depressed since arriving becasue he loves people and was given up by his owner who did not take that good care of him. Whenever someone goes in with him he just wants to be petted and will lay on top of you.

Marty is a 2 year old Siberian Husky-he is so sweet-he is an adults only dog cause he needs a very stable home and exercise and kids can't provide that but oh my god I love him. He is such a sweet heart and will get excited especially whenever someone goes inside his room but he calms down and will lay down and have you pet him for ages.

When I figure out how I will post pictures.

I went to Harmony House today. Its a no kill cat shelter, and I went for an orientation so I could volunteer. It had the best time. The  cats were so sweet and there are so many of them!! There are a lot of black and white ones, along with black ones that it will take awhile for me to remember who they all are. But my favorite from today was King Friday-he is 15 years old, has no teeth and is declawed but he is so sweet. I will only be able to go on Tuesday and Thursday 6-8, so right after school. The lady, whose name I can't for the life of me remember, said that in time I may be able to help with adoptions, very few volunteers do, since before they apparenlty kept interrupting previous adoptions which they only hold on the weekends.

On a side note I have my Spanish IB exam tomorrow-his I will totally fail and I am not kidding-I will have more on my exam week after my last test on Tuesday.
