Okay, I had one of the best weekends yet. I got to do a lot of sleeping in with the hubby and that is no mean feat. 🙂 Three day weekends rock and I fear that my laziness may have cost me brownie points with the parents. Well, work starts tomorrow and with it, the sights & smells. Last Friday, I had the privilege of performing the interesting task of splitting embalmed dog heads along the longitudinal axis using the band saw. Everyone who works there is deathfully afraid of using that instrument, but being the laboratory coordinator, itâ€™s part of my job to be unafraid of such tools. In a nutshell, I go where angels fear to tread. Thankfully, my supervisor stayed with me while I worked just in case I accidentally sawed something off and lost the ability to dial an emergency number. Tomorrow, Iâ€™ll be sawing through the rest of the heads (38 total) and wishÂ me luck!
In other news, Mâ€™s friend recently got a car and his old car would have been traded to the dealership, but itâ€™s beginning to look like we might just get his old car instead. Of course, weâ€™re paying for it and I donâ€™t want to jinx the deal just yet. The carâ€™s been pretty well cared for and Iâ€™m confident that we arenâ€™t getting a lemon although the car has been to the mechanicâ€™s quite a bit. Nevertheless, itâ€™s a 4-door car and weâ€™re both pretty psyched about it. Ordinarily, Iâ€™d like to work out a payment deal versus paying all that is due (price) upfront, but he needs the bulk of the money upfront so Mâ€™s dad is kindly loaning us some money to help with that. As for Mâ€™s current car (Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme), we just might hang on to it because Iâ€™m kind of attached to it seeing as there is a lot of history there. 🙂 Weâ€™ve slept in the car, fought in it, yelled in it, done terrible *cough* things *cough* in it, et cetera. lol.
In yet other news, someoneâ€™s birthday is coming up. Thatâ€™s right: Mattâ€™s!! Heâ€™s turning 29 and Iâ€™ve decided to go lowkey for his birthday. Iâ€™m definitely taking him out to eat and Iâ€™ll tell yâ€™all the rest after itâ€™s happened. With that, cheers and a belated happy Hallo’ween!
