So basically, I guess keep your fingers crossed. Grades are posted by midnight tonight, which means I'll see them first thing in the morning. I know I have an A in both of my education classes as well as one of my political science classes, and I think I have a B in two of my other political sciences, but I feel sick every time I think of this class.
I'll be spending the day doing laundry, wrapping the few remaining unwrapped presents (some of them aren't completely here yet and some aren't quite finished (the throws we're having monogrammed for one friend and my cousins)), and helping Mr. Preppy finish shopping for our mothers... at least he knows what he's getting and just has to actually go get it.
On a semi-related note (at least related to Pandora and other charm bracelets), I know that some of the companies' charms are interchangeable, but I wasn't able to find a dog charm that I like to give my mother. I ended up getting her the silver Pandora bracelet, a four-leaf clover charm (since we're part Irish), and a gift box charm. Mr. Preppy is buying her the poinsettia charm since it's Christmas, but since we're crazy about our four legged family members I know she'd love a charm like that. The Pandora one (I'm sorry if any of you have it) looks ridiculous. My co-worker asked why they made the Target dog look, ahem, mentally challenged. If you haven't seen it, this is it:
I just can't see how that does either of our retrievers or my feisty little Miniature Pinscher any justice. So, instead of spending $25 on one I don't like and I felt positive she wouldn't like, I resorted to eBay. I didn't find any comparable brands with charms that were cute enough, but I did find a knockoff sterling silver dog charm. This one looks much more like a retriever (I think getting Preppy Pup's likeness in a charm the size of an eraser will prove impossible, but if any of you know where I can get one of those, please tell. This is the knockoff:
I know it's not as good a quality (although it is sterling silver, it's just missing the brand name), but I think it will pass the recipient likeness test. My only concern is whether or not it will fit the bracelet. Has anyone else every bought off-brand for something like this?
Sorry for such a long post... back later today or tomorrow with more news.
