Wednesday

And so its Wednesday folks. Kinda tired. Kinda sleepy.

Sitting here at my desk thinking, why on earth did I pack ww zero point soup for lunch.  Ahhh!

I miss the dogs, they were so cute this morning. They didn’t want me to leave.

Back to work I go.

Its been a few…

100_4894.jpgWelcome Salisbury, yes, a third dog. Literally our house has gone to the dogs, with the excpetion of our beautiful bedroom.

Salisbury was named after Salisbury Street in Worcester. His brothers and sisters each have royal names so why shouldn’t he ? He came from a litter of 16! His tail and double claws remain untouched, but who cares, we aren’t going to show him. He knows this, we talked. We said, ” Salisbury, you are going to be a family dog.”

Salisbury is 12 lbs of energy and pee. He is an 8 week old airedale terrier. Yes, that makes 2 airedales= trouble. Sleepless nights and howling… but he is our new baby so, we cope.

On the other paw, he has really added to the interesting dynamic with the other two pups. Terrance seems to have taken a liking to Salisbury with minimal barking and mean growls. Dutchess is absolutely in love with him because he has her mentality without the fear of everything unknown.

 Its been a few weeks since I have written because we have been super busy. I took a much needed vacation day on Friday and worked on painting our bedroom and generally getting the house back to order seeing as I haven’t done a good cleaning in a few weeks.

I think I need to hire someone to come in and clean the floors. I wandered to target looking for a replacement head to my mop. I picked out a swirly blue and white anti-microbal one that looked like it could do the job and low and behold I get the thing home and -it doesn’t fit my mop. It looked as if it was the only one that would fit, so now I have to go back and buy a probally fifteen dollar mop. Fab. I love it. I really do need to wash my floors. Really.

100_4844.jpgToday is Sunday and tomorrow I return to work. The pups are back on their own- did I mention we hired a dog walker? I am not even going to tell you how much it costs for such a service. They are very nice people and my dogs love them. Perhaps we should all become dog walkers.

Seriously. I don’t mind poop.

Can’t We All Just Get Along?!

I was absolutely tickled with Lisa Belkin’s Life’s Work column today in the NYT Style section entitled, ‘It’s Not the Job I Despise, It’s You.’ Cheeky as usual it chronicles working with that special someone that you despise.Yes, there are always those that one can’t stand, but its important to also recognize that the most important thing to practice is kindness. Remember the phrase your mother taught you, ‘ kill em; with kindness.’ That way you win either way.

With today starting the year of the year of the Rat, or Wu Zi, the year is marked by : a time of hard work and renewal in many ways and to make a fresh start. So perhaps we can all make it a point to make a fresh start and be kind to one another.
