Today at work was non-stop-go go go. My desk looks horrible, I have notes everywhere, and stacks of papers waiting on other papers to go with them before I can finish. I have a huge mail out to do tomorrow so I have stacks of envelopes, letters and certified stickers to fill out. My to do list seems to be growing at night.

I love it! This job is great!

Randy is on his pain pills and they seem to be working. The side effects are lethargy, lack of appetite and diarrhea. I'd rather deal with that than hear his pitiful whining and crying when he hurts. Poor guy, I hope he feels better soon.

We had a huge thunderstorm today. It rained and hailed so hard on my way back from lunch I had to pull over because I couldn't see. It rained for quite some time. It's supposed to again tomorrow. I love this weather but it makes me want to take a nap.

I hope everyone has a great weekend :)

Before I split up with my ex, we had a very close friend. My ex and her had a falling out and I got caught in the crossfire-losing her as a friend as well. I never could get the whole story out of either of them of what happened, but it was pretty bad and looking back, I handled it poorly.

When I split up with him, I tried to make contact with her and start over but it didn't work-she would be nice enough, just not want to get close. It kinda became a running joke-whenever I would see her I'd say "let's have a drink sometime-call me!" Both of us have easy to remember phone numbers so we'd laugh and say I remember your number. I gave up calling and she never did.

So over the past 7 years I haven't seen her too much, until recently. The building I work in has an association that she is a member of and they have a meeting there once a week. She came to my office a few times to say hi.

Then out of the blue she pops in today and said "lets get a drink tomorrow!" Who knows if she will follow through with it, but it's a nice thought and I'm hopeful.

Today drug by and I was so tired. Last night Randy woke up yelping, whining and shaking about 1:30am. It was too early to give him his medicine so I put him in his bed and hugged on him and tried to calm him down. I finally got him to sleep around 3:00am and got up at 7:00am and boy did I feel it all day. It was worth it, I wouldn't have been able to sleep anyway knowing he was miserable.

This morning he was stiff and wimpering and the vet gave us some pain pills for him. It seems to be working-he is dozing now and 20 minutes after I gave him the pain pill he loosened up and you could tell he was relaxed.

I won't need a pill to sleep tonight! I hope everyone had a great humpday :)

Everything in the yard is coming up. It is nice to see things I planted last year popping up, still waiting on others-keeping my fingers crossed.

Even though it means extra work in the yard, I love this time of year when everything is just on the verge, budding out but not all the way yet. The grass still brown, but with hints of green-even the dandelions I try to get rid of every year.

I have several bradford pears and I love it when they are in bloom.

I had to take my Dachshund, Randy, to the vet yesterday. He got excited and jumped off the bed a few days before (he is 13). Later on he would squeal whenever he walked around. I thought it was his leg or shoulder but it turned out to be his neck.

After horrible flashbacks to my other Dachshund, Rudy, paralyzed from the waist down after his jump from the couch, she finally said he would most likely be okay with some anti-inflammatory medication. He has only jumped off the bed once before in his whole life, but I'm not going to allow him up there anymore-also going to keep him off of the couch just in case.

Rudy (God I still miss him) had shown signs of back trouble when he was young, Randy and Petey luckily haven't. Petey is still young at 3, I try to keep Petey from activities that would cause back trouble like tug o war and jumping up.

I hope everyone is having a great week :)

Rainy Weekend

It started raining late last night and has been overcast all day, drizzly. I like it until I have to let the muddy pawed dogs in!

This week will be busy at work, and my boss in out of town.

I got my $200 ticketmaster gift card in that I won-I'm going to save it until our next Las Vegas trip for a good concert or show.

Not much else is going on, going to have to juggle a couple of bills this week and hope that nothing gets cut off! I hope everyone has a great monday :)

I accidentally fixed it!

I finally decided to dust off the laptop in the corner and give it a go again to try to get on the internet wirelessly. I had doubts. I tried a few settings, called tech support again for 3 different products but nothing.

Finally I decided I would try to work on the notion that it was spyware or the like. I went to the remove program area in windows and just started uninstalling everything after I looked on google and found out what it was.

I finally uninstalled a program called NewDotNet and voila, my internet popped up and said connected. I was leary at first and hopeful.

I crossed my fingers and opened up firefox. I have never been so happy to see the google start page!

I'm continuing the removal of a bunch of junk on this computer such as kazaa, etc.-wish me luck!

I got my $200 gift card to Ticketmaster in the mail today, that was exciting. My wins have been sparse.

I hope everyone has a great weekend :)
