I took my math final on Sunday.

We had the National Honor Society induction ceremony tonight.

Two big projects down, two to go. Next up: Oklahoma Route 66 Association Trip Guide, followed by the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon.

Speaking of which, I need to sign up for the marathon. It’s only going to get more expensive if I wait. Probably ought to look into getting a hotel room, too — I’m told they’re pretty scarce, and I’m not really keen on getting up at 4 a.m. to drive over there from Red Fork the morning of the race.

On a sad note, we lost another pet today: I got up this morning to find that my gerbil, Juliet, had passed away sometime in the night. Poor baby hasn’t even had a proper burial yet. I found her as I was getting ready for work this morning, and it was dark by the time I got home this evening, so I’ll have to take care of her in the morning.

  1. That’s a lot of dead animals, Emily. Has someone been out to your neighborhood to check gas leaks or toxicity levels or whatnot? I’m worried about you.

  2. Dear Emily,
    So sorry about both your losses. I know the goldfish and gerbil had lots of love and affection while they were with you. My sincere condolences.

  3. Brigid and Leslie: Thanks.

    Grace: It’s unlikely that an airborne problem would affect water, or vice-versa. Both animals were fairly old. I suspect the last big freeze got Laz, and Juliet was showing signs of an upper respiratory infection, which is not uncommon for gerbils in general or her in particular.
