It has been a long time since I last updated. Its been pretty busy here...since we are at the culmination of the summer semester, everything has been snowballing (as it always does). Trying to keep up with research and progressively moving forward with that (which means late nights in the lab), I spent all week trying to catch up on grading only to have three lab reports and notebooks turned in yesterday afternoon (and one of those experiments is at least an 8 page discussion that has to be graded along with postlab, prelab and data writeups for that experiment). All these things which I must have graded by monday morning to submit my grades to the lab coordinator so that he can write up the final grades. I'm also taking a class this summer (though late nights in the lab make it really hard to get up for 8am lectures) and we had a test on Wednesday that I hardly studied for (somehow I made an A on it though, thank God) and we have our final today. I am not expecting it to be too difficult, just another thing on my very full plate.
And as if that wasn't enough, I came home one day to find that Tesia had pretty much scratched her neck off. I noticed she has been itching herself more lately (but its not fleas since she is a 150% indoor cat) but this week was it. I've treated her with spray from the pet store, but to no avail. The poor girl's neck was scratched completely raw. I only hope that her hair will grow back. I took her to the vet today, and it turns out its a food allergy. So...they sent us home with an antibacterial shot (so I don't have to fight her everyday for two weeks to get a pill down her throat, not a very fun thing to do with her) a steroid shot to help with the itch, special non-allergen food, and a nice little vet bill (they had to do blood work to make sure she didn't have some sort of infection, and that it would be ok to give her the steroid shot). I hope she feels better soon! my poor little baby. I brought a blanket with us so she could hide in it (she is the epitome of "scaredy-cat") and she did pretty good at the vet, especially considering how many times she got pricked today.

Well thats my update! Hope everyone has a great weekend...I know I will be keeping busy!
Hopefully I will be able to fit a nap, lots of crochet and run in somewhere. <3 onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="">
