Wow! Science Fair Project due tomorrow. Now, if it were mine, I would have had it done a couple of weeks after the subject was approved. But no - daughter saved the putting together part until the day before it was due. And, of course, as always happens with procrastination, something happened. A patient died as she was getting ready to leave her shift and she had to deal with taking him where he needed to go and with comforting the family so she got home pretty late to start. I felt sorry for her so I keep my mouth shut and pitched in and helped finish it so she get get some sleep before going back in tonight.
So, it was a wild weekend. Did a wee bit more shopping - well, actually the boy wanted to go look at dogs. We were at the pet store and he wanted to pet the miniature pinscher - until I asked how much it was. Then we ran. There was a darling little terrier too - but the prices on pets in pet stores is absurd and I've read that one shouldn't get a pet from a pet shop anyway. So where? I went to a breeder once to get a Persian kitten and it was malnourished, full of ringworm, and deformed. Well, who would want a poor little monster cat? We nursed it to health with much effort and $. It was always insane too. Too much inbreeding, cross breeding can be animal cruelty.
I think what we want is a toy peek-a-poo or shi zhu.
Then he spent too long in a collector's store - choosing an action figure and some comic books. Well, he was happy. I purchased four used movies from the movie store.
Planned to go to church this a.m., but science and religion clashed once again.
