and a partridge in a pear tree

wow i cannot believe the first week of the quarter is nearly over. time flies when you're...getting lost on the way to class and forgetting to pick up your textbooks? yeahh...

so i am back in the lovely rochester. i arrived back to there being several inches of the wonderful powdery white stuff on the ground with even MORE falling. i think today was the first time since i arrived sunday that i haven't seen it snowing.

play rehearsal is off to a slow start. on the other hand, singers is in full swing. we have an extra rehearsal this weekend to get ready for TWO concerts next weekend. it's a bit easier because about a third of our music is christmas carols which most people have some knowledge of.

i decided that i think i'm going to ask my mom to get me an apple-corer-slicer-peeler for christmas. it would make my life so much easier and i'd eat a ton more apples.

my christmas tree is up at home!! we also got our special ornaments...we have FOUR this year. the first one is a little fireplace with four stockings hanging off and we have our names on the stockings. the second one i got for my mom. it's a "beach bum" lady and it says her name on towel. the third is just a simple glass ornament that says "i (mickey mouse symbol) NY". the last one (you can guess who picked this one out) is CINDERELLA!! [=

so in other not very happy at all news, my puppy died over break. ]= i talked with carline about dogs and how important they are to family members. i'm an only child and i got harry (my dog) for my sixth birthday, so he's been everything for awhile.

    [color=#FF0000][/color] You have brought tears to my eyes again. You have not made me cry but that I am crying with you. Like I said before, I am truly sorry for your lost. It is a process. He lived a great long life, until you meet again on the rainbow bridge... When a person you love dies, it's natural to feel sorrow, express grief, and expect friends and family to provide understanding and comfort. Unfortunately, the same doesn't always hold true if the one who died was your companion animal. Many consider grieving inappropriate for someone who has lost "just a pet." We all know people who have cried over the dog's death. There are also others who do not understand the grief owners go through because they have never owned a dog. Perhaps, you have suffered the loss of a dog, and know how painful it must be. Konrad Lorenz, the great expert on animal behavior, said: "It is one of the cruelties of this world that the longevity of our dogs is shorter than ours." The reason behind this great sadness is that there is no another living animal that is so similar to us, that treats us with great affection, never betrays us, and loves us unconditionally. May Harry be running around during is best of years with my Cookie. I LOVE MY COOKIE.
