Hi! I hope everyone had a good and restful weekend, because I didn't. I took an "Express" GRE class because I am planning on applying to grad school soon. So it was Saturday and Sunday 9am to 6:30pm and on top of that it was about 60 miles away so I had to add major driving time to that. After this ... Read More about Back in action
I know this is not a dog, this is my cat. I don't want to reward my dog Bailey, with a pic on the blog considering he just freaked out when I took him to get his rabies shot and squirted his anal gland at the vet's office. I didn't even know dogs could do that until I saw the Vet Tech guy cleaning ... Read More about My dog is gross

I'm back from my 3 day cruise to Ensenada! It was super fun and I do want to recap all my eating since I want to see the damage I did over the weekend.
