If she goes to a school that doesn't expect a declared major for a couple years I could see her reattach to science.

Teaching is hard to break into right now in a lot of locations. Many teachers that were going to retire didn't due to the Wall Street treachery.

Something I did with my girls - I showed them a list of what various professions paid and talked about how they could expect to live making those salaries. It was something they previously had not given a lot of thought to.

Good idea.

There are some great sites for all ages that look at careers, what one actually does, costs of the education, prospected earnings, and growth rate.I am on my phone but I will try to get you some good examples when I'm on a comp.

lies

Lies make you happy? Or is someone lying? :unsure:

I'm guessing he's saying career paths are more of a crap shoot than some folks let on. I still want to see those sites though. :)

Carrotchops is making me happy. We just had a really nice cuddle.

Cuddling with BeeBee before getting down to work for the evening. :)

Got him worried because you've been seeing another dog. :haha:

DanaC 04-03-2013 06:47 AM

ha! Maybe so :P

Today I am happy, again because of Carrotchops. We've just come back from his hydrotherapy session. he did 26 minutes with the treadmill on an uphill setting (yey). His muscle development is looking good and his foot placement much improved.

I've to take him back in three or four weeks for an assessment, and hopefully Rhona will sign him off from treatment, and he'll just be doing his exercises at home with me.

In the meantime, he's been given permission to have some off-lead free running. Got to give him a full ten minutes warmup walk before letting him run, and not with other dogs as yet, but at least he can have a bit of freedom again :) To start will be doing this every other day, and only for a short spell, but hey - I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.

We're also well on the way to weaning him back off his pain meds. He started out on 25 ml a day, then once his groinstrain injury was all sorted we started dropping it down. Went down to 15 ml for a couple of weeks, and then 10 ml for a couple of weeks. Day after tomorrow I'll drop it down to 7 ml for a couple of weeks and if he's ok at that level we can then drop it entirely :)

Great news. Has the snow melted, or is he walking/running in it?

Great news for Carrot!

I am happy today because at the doctor's office today I weighed in at 125 lbs -- the likes of which have not been seen since about 2005. I weighed 145 when I got pregnant and 160 when I gave birth. Guess there are some pros to not being able to stuff my face with ice cream and cheese...

Yay on the weight Chocolatl!
Good job Carrot!!

Going to see an ocupational therapist for physio and massage on my hip today, then spending the afternoon with my 6 day old granddaughter!

Plus, nursing really pulls off the weight.
