The life of a nonprofessional catsitter

I am catsitting for the same people for whom I housesat and dogsat a couple of months ago. I go to their house every other day and refill the large feeding dishes, freshen the water bowls and empty the kitty litter box. I've already done my laundry there and scoured the fridge for something good to eat (to no avail) so I just get in and get out. No hanging around. Especially considering that one of the two cats just sits by the door when I'm there meowing and being all pissy because he's not allowed outside while my friends are gone. And cat shit? It stinks!

On the LSAT: Studying is going slowly and horribly. On two of the three types of questions that will be on the test, I consistently miss 1/3 of the questions on practice tests. I routinely answer the third type of question correctly only 1/3 of the time. I did fine when I was on a beginner book, but now I'm on more advanced books with questions that have a difficulty mirroring questions actually found on the test. The test is in two weeks. So far, I'm up the river with only 1/2 a paddle.

Cut yourself some slack. This is P-r-a-c-t-i-c-e. You are learning as you go along.

And, by the way, good for you, practicing for the test like that!

I recall when Daughter was taking the test there were a number of logic questions that were real brain teasers. Daughter has since decided to forgo law.

To be fair to cats, it's hard to find any animal with shit that doesn't stink. Although I hear that Michael Jackson is an exception.

Practice makes perfect, as they say. Good luck!
