I'm back! The interview went pretty well (I think) but I'm still nervous about getting in.
In other news, one of the turtles at the Audubon Society needs to get induced! She's been pregnant for a while and since there's no males around, she can't lay her eggs. We gave some of the raptors their showers today (you spray them with a spritzey hose--the bald eagle really likes it and it's fun to watch him) since it was so hot out. It was a busy day today, and now I'm tired!
That's what I said. Apparently the procedure goes the same way as with people, but I don't get all this turtle stuff! What happens when they can't find males in the wild? But she now has five healthy, unfertilized eggs, which would have caused a lot of trouble if she was left as she was.
I'm going away for a couple days to Maine (college visit--whee!). We were going to leave this afternoon, but the weather's been funny so we're taking off Wednesday and will be back late on Thursday. The snow situation now looks meager up north, so I shouldn't be stranded on Friday. *knockonwood* I'll be wicked busy Friday so I might not post then, though.
Hey guys, bar a slight delay, we're headed safely to NYC. There's been massive rain and flooding around here and a lot of houses have been damaged, so emergencies abound--Mal's house got hit pretty hard, but besides being a little sleep-deprived everything's okay. He made us cookies! They were yummy. So everything's going as planned for the next couple days and we have to run on a weird schedule today because of the delay.
