A little closer to caught up

Friday, October 23, 2009

My boss told me that there are many things that will need to be done every day and that there was an easy way to prioritize them.

Do the stuff that will get me yelled at or fired if I don't do them first.
Do the stuff that has to be done to keep business going next.
Do stuff I want to do last.

Guess what never gets done! LOL!

Good thing I'm salary...they couldn't afford me otherwise! emoticon

    I just hope there's a clear line between what will get you fired and what will keep business running, lol, or you might be in trouble!!!

Going into work early tomorrow

Friday, October 23, 2009

I am so behind at work that I feel like I will never catch up. I will, but with the new learning I have to do, things take me longer than I think they should. I'm heading into work a couple of hours early tomorrow so I can some of the "gotta-do's" off my to-do list. If I can get those couple of things done, I will feel better about what's left. At least that's my plan!

On that note, good night!

Puppy training update

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

So...we got tested on sit/stay tonight. Abby passed. I cheated. LOL! I had a treat in my hand. She will sit very still for a very long time if there is a treat in her future!

We practiced the Come command. She was so bad (went after the dogs at the other end) that we were sent to a quiet aisle to practice! LOL!

DH is still fighting off whatever it is he has, so I took my daughter. She behaved better than my son did last week, but was glued to the cell phone. She was NOT happy when I took it away! I put my phone in one back pocket of my jeans, and hers in the other. I had a lumpy butt! LOL!

We have three more weeks and Abby is doing better. She has a long way to go, but then, so do we! We need to practice more consistently. We'll get there...I swear! emoticon

    Oh, puppy school, I remember those days!!! We have labs (just one now, the other one passed away just over a year ago) and they were both highly motivated by food. Just like me!!!! We never did get past the treat phase in training. Stick with it, it'll be worth it in the long run!

What kind of puppy do you have now? Oh dear, I'm starting to want another one. Uh oh!! emoticon

LOVE the Biggest Loser!!

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

I do not watch a lot of television that I have chosen. In other words, DH or the kids generally choose what we are watching. However, on Tuesday nights, I watch The Biggest Loser. If that means I go into my room by myself to watch, so be it! LOL!

Watched tonight and was disappointed that my least favorite person is still there. Oh well, there's always next week!

    I'm in the same boat that you are. If there is a show I really want to watch I go in the bedroom. I watch Dancing With The Stars and Grey's Anatomy. Sorry things didn't work out as you planned. LOL

New contacts!

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

My daughter and I both had our eyes checked about 6 weeks ago and got new prescriptions. The Dr. gave me my daughter's prescription, but wouldn't give me mine until I paid the fill in full (that's fair). So, I paid for her contacts and then submitted the claim to insurance for reimbursement. That finally came this last week.

So, I cashed that check and used the money to go buy my contacts today!! Should have them by this time next week! Yay!! I've got the paperwork to get reimbursed for mine done already. Trying to decide what I will spend that money on. Hmmm...visions of sweaters and new boots and new pants dance in my head...
