The tree broke my house :(

The mess (inside):

My younger cat was on the tree in the left of this picture when the ceiling fell in... poor thing is still scared to death.


You can pretty clearly see the horizontal branch that fell into the house. There are 4 total that fell last night- and there wasn't a breath of wind.

We were fortunate, no windows were broken and our bikes are somewhere under those branches, but are OK. Can't say the same for the fence

Size comparison. She's 55 pounds and they are a bit bigger around that she is.

Where 3 of the 4 branches broke from

The offending branch from the outside.

It's been an eventful weekend already, and it's only 10am on Saturday morning.

Puttin' on my big girl panties!!

I am getting more hours at work! I'm taking the evening aid's hours since she does NOTHING other than sit around and giggle at nothing.  Not only is it creepy, but it really pisses me off to walk in on Monday morning to a full trash can and full laundry basket. It'll bump me up to 30 hours a week, about $100 per check, which all in all, doesn't seem like much, but every little bit helps.

I think I'm also going to sign up for a vet tech program through Penn Foster College. It's an AS degree, which seems a bit redundant since I already have my BA, but whatever. Some of my credits will transfer over and I won't have to take as many classes or pay as much in tuition. Even still, I make a $1 down payment and pay $47/mo for 2 1/4 years and I'm done- considering they'll give you up to 12 months per semester, and there are 4 semesters, this is going to be a piece of cake. I won't feel pressured to kill myself while working, but I'll still get it done way way before 4 years is up, lol.

It's going to be interesting!!
