Dan Brown knows how to write a book! I'm not even halfway through this book, but am already hooked! I have read everything that Dan Brown has written (at least everything I know about...four books...this is number five).
All of his books take brain power to read, even more to understand! I don't think I quite follow it all the way and I'm sure I'm missing stuff. But, that's okay. Means that the next time I read it, it will be a whole new book again! LOL!

First...a quick challenge. Try to say "loose leash walking". Just once! It's harder than it looks. It's even hard to type! LOL!
Tonight was our second puppy training class. We worked on loose leash walking for most of it and Abby kicked tail! She is such a good baby and wants to please us so much that she did really well. Of course, that was just in the store. We'll have to practice in sooooo many places with so many other distractions. Should be fun! We'll practice with Scooby too. He wants to please as well and should learn very quickly.
We also practiced sit and stay (just a little bit). Our homework is to practice loose-leash walking at least 30 minutes per day, practice sit and write down all of the things our puppies do that we don't want them to do (like dig in the trash, chewing on stuff, eating small children, stuff like that).
I'm looking forward to that homework. The pulling/walk thing was getting old!
Time for bed. Later all!

My answer is Yes! Because my head imploded last week and no one noticed! Except me, of course. With the re-org at work, we went from four people working on the same products down to me and three folks who are trying to dump their work onto me! With that, I need to learn a new part of the job, working with subcons. There doesn't seem to be a clear list of fill out this form, then this one, then this one. Still asking for that!
We did get a new body working on the "my" product. He knows the job and he knows the subcon part (mostly). Just have to train him on the product. Should only take a year or two! LOL! And, we did find out that we are getting one new person. He will be learning the job, the product AND the subcon. So, not only do I cover what will be his products, but I also get to assist in the training of both of these guys. AND, keep my projects on track. And send updates. And go to meetings (I had SEVEN meetings scheduled today...yes, I work an EIGHT hour day....you do the math!) LOL! For those without a calculator, that means I only had about an hour to do real work. hee hee
And no one has noticed that my head imploded and that crazy little miner guys are running around through the remaining gray matter, making brain angels and having brain-ball fights. I know they are there. I hear them! LOL!
Okay, time to put all these crazy thoughts to bed.

At work today, I reduced the number of unread e-mails to just under 200. Of course, I left early to watch my daughter play volleyball, so it'll be back up to 250+ in the morning, but I did knock it down!
I'm caught up with everything at home and it's only 10:23.
So...what am I forgetting? What was I supposed to do that I didn't? Who's going to yell at me tomorrow for not doing it today? I don't know and I don't think I care enough to stay up any longer and find out! LOL!

And all of you who are know I'm right! LOL! If I were an irresponsible anything (adult, child, warmonger, etc.) I could have slept in much later than I did. I could have taken a nap. I would have sat on my butt and read my book until my buns were numb! LOL!
But, no, my parents had to instill a work ethic and a conscience. Dang it! I did sleep in until a little after 9:00. Since no one else was up until 8:30, I have no guilty feelings about that at all! After eating the delicious breakfast DH prepared, I started getting stuff done. I went to the gym. I did two loads of laundry. I made dinner for both tonight and tomorrow night. I started auctions. I braided my daughter's hair. I cooked my veggies for the next couple of days (and did the dishes from that!). Now I'm going to fill out paperwork for FSA reimbursements. When all that is done, it will be time for bed.
All I wanted to do, however, was find out what "terrible" secrets Robert Langdon finds in Dan Brown's newest book "The Lost Symbol"! (He's the guy who wrote "The DaVinci Code") Regardless of whether I believe everything he writes, it is an entertaining story. And I want to be entertained! Whaaaaaa!!!
Okay...done being a baby. Back to adulthood. Hope you are all enjoying your responsible lives! LOL!
