well - Amanda is officially away for a 9-month internship and has move to a
city about 2 hours away. She is studying Medical Lab Science and this is
the final year.

I get to remain home, make money so we both stay fed and the mortgage gets
paid, and I also get to take care of the dogs.

She was a little nervous about her first day and about being away from home
and her dogs, but it's a pretty awesome acheivement.

Anyone caring to send her a little pick-me-up:
