Pretty sure our rabbit has fleas. Poor little Bianca. But how did she get them? We don’t have any other pets, and she rarely goes outside (like twice a year), except for being transported from house to car to another house in her travel cage. Fleas are hard to get rid of in rabbits. They lick themselves like cats and have very sensitive digestive systems, so you have to be careful not to let them ingest too much flea powder. I should probably stop laying on the floor with her. The last thing I need is fleas. My hair is so long…that would definitely suck. I get itchy just thinking about it. We had fleas for a while at our old house because of the nasty cat that lived there before us. I didn’t get them then; hopefully I won’t get them now. Yuck!
This week has gone crazy fast. I still don’t feel back in routine after Spring Break. At the same time, I can’t believe Spring Break was only a week ago. Time is playing tricks on my mind. I’m done with classes for the week, but still have plenty to get done. I’m interviewing a couple swim coaches today for the profile I’m working on. It will probably be fairly casual. It’s the first interview and we’re meeting for lunch. It can only go an hour because at 2 p.m. I’m going the to MAP (Missouri Association of Publications) Annual Summit to schmooze with journalists and listen to Mark Kramer speak.
I still need to take the final for my online course. I’ve finished all the lessons, so it’s just whenever I have time to study for it and go into the CDIS office to take it. I don’t want to put it off too long lest I forget everything I’ve learned. It’s tricky too because the office closes pretty early and they require you to show up 2 hours before closing time in case you need the full time allotted for the test. I had two hours to take the midterm– and finished it in under 20 minutes. It’s multiple choice, how long could you possibly take? Either you know it or you don’t. Fortunately, I know it. I’m going to get almost a perfect score in the class. It helps that I’m interested in the subject. It’s the psychology of sleep disorders. And I’m pretty sure I have one.
I want to start writing fiction again. I got an idea last night and started writing it out. It’s probably going to be longer than the short stories I’ve put up here before (Short Story From Peace Park, Lacy Green Panties, Sunshine and Ponies). Maybe I’ll post it in several installments. Like a serial novel. But not as long as a novel. Then again…who knows? I’ll probably start posting my nonfiction essays soon as well. Might as well get my writing out there. Maybe I can garner some anonymous critiques. So be looking for that stuff, hopefully soon.
