So, on crazy dogs. I believe that dogs can be trained, to a point, but sometimes I just have to give up and train myself. There is a sliding glass door in my bedroom. One dog loves to get his head in the curtains and stare out the window. That would be fine, except he goes bats*(* whenever anyone walks by. My first step was to sew the curtain panels together. So he found a way under the curtains :0) This has been going on for a couple of years. Remember, I've previously said that I make changes and decisions slowly :0)
I've been trying to keep myself busy, while not smoking (there are only so many showers I can take Merikay lol). I've been cleaning up my unfinished basement. I found these folding, plastic, spikey mats, that I had evidentally purchased sometime in the past. THEY WORK AWESOME!! Crazy dog is a little peaved with me, but he's staying out of the curtains! Today, I'm putting one on the bed. The other crazy dog likes to pull down the bedspread and sleep on my pillows, ARGH!! I'm o.k. with her on the bed, I just want her to stay off my clean sheets!! I'll keep you posted.
In summary... I'm unemployed but not broke yet. Loosing weight and not smoking. Keeping my house picked up and my laundry clean. Just need to find a job that doesn't make me want to smoke and eat!! Should be a doable goal.
Hope all is well out there. Take care and be gentle with each other.
(so back to counting stuff I'm thankful for)
- Training myself to save money when I was still employed.
- Crazy dogs are ongoing, live-in entertainment
- Warm place to sleep/stay when it's cold and yucky outside
- Family that has offerred to pay for the RN refresher course if I need it
- Internet access so I can feel in touch with the rest of the world :0)
