So I'm taking a scanning electron microscopy course this summer that's pretty interesting. Something I can add to my resume. It's time to register for the fall and can you believe it? I have to go and see the counselor again. Apparently my degree in biology is not enough to waive their baby bio class. Okay, easy A, not a problem. I signed up for the class, as well as a class in DNA techniques. What does the computer say. Can't sign up for the DNA class because I don't have the baby bio class finished. S*%T! I now have to go and see the counselor so I can take these classes concurrently. Jeez, you'd think I wanted to take a course in brain surgery! I do not have time to take one class a semester! I had given thought to taking enough courses to get all four certifications they offer (most of the courses overlap anyway) but now I'm not so sure. I could lose my mind. And I still need to get calculus into this madness in order to go for my masters. : p

In happier news, M has been picked up permanently at the company she's been temping for. She likes the job and the people and I'm really glad to see her so happy. She will be something like General Operations Manager in the next couple of months. And the owner said that he would defiantly pay 40K and may go up to 60K because she turned down a position with another crazy person who was going to pay 60. I (with the help of a couple of friends) managed to convince her not to make the move back to working for someone who was nuts. She's had enough of that in the last few years. The owner of the company where she is now really seems to appreciate what she can do and the stress level in our house has diminished considerably. 

The kitties are doing great. Our newest baby, Illya, just has the market cornered on cute. I'll have to get some more pictures to put up here. His bowl in now in the kitchen with the big kitties and he's very happy. Of course, we still have the problem of keeping him from eating the grown up food and the others from eating the baby food. Overall, everyone is getting along just fine.

I heard the word marriage out of my son's mouth last night. What a shock. He's got the sweetest girlfriend. Luckily both of them know they need to be better able to take care of themselves before they set a date. Glad something we taught him sunk in! Well, that's all the news that's fit to print in my household.

Most excellent news on all front for you & your family.
But, your degree is in Bio & you have to take Baby Bio?
You could probably teach Baby Bio, true?

Bureaucracy - truly may be the downfall of mankind.

Kitties all getting along, Yay! Yeah, what a difference it makes in your life to have a decent job around sane people. The extra money can't make up for 8 hours of misery every day. The one time I made that mistake I actually started developing allergies--I don't have any allergies.

Glad to hear all the good news.

But honestly, the system that says you have to take baby bio when you have a degree in biology is utterly crazy! I do hope you can get to take the courses concurrently.

The Bio requirement is just plain stupid, in your case. Is there an appeal process? gosh, it doesn't make sense. Wishing you best of luck on this.

Glad to hear Illya kitty is doing well, and gets to eat with the big kids now!

Congrats to M on the job! So glad she went with sane boss/less money.
