It’s been a while…a lot has been going on…where to start?
First, if anyone from WordPress happens to read this – I HATE THE NEW FORMAT. Also – I have noticed all of a sudden all sorts of typos and spacing issues through past posts…I spell check EVERYTHING before I post it (I have grammar Nazi’s for friends – I even googled the title to be sure it was spelled correctly) My grammar might not always be the best – as I write the way I think – chaotic, but spacing, indention and such…
Wait – did anyone else see that squirrel?
Let’s start with the BIG news…The Dork is getting married! AND —- they are having a BABY GIRL!
Next, actually, after the engagement, but before the baby, he took a job in Louisiana, however, he is now being transferred to Oklahoma
♫ O-o-o-klahoma where the wind comes sweeping down the plain… ♪
Damn squirrel! Leave me alone or I am going to sic the dogs on you!
OH! Speaking of dogs..
I have decided what I want to do when I grow up – I want to be a dog trainer.
Everyone chuckles at this as if this is a joke. (and this kinda hurts the wee bit of feelings I have)
Yet, I am serious. I love dogs. In fact, the more people I meet, the more I love my dogs.
So, I began looking into schools, but they are all online. I am not sure I would do well with on- line classes (see above mentioned squirrel ) so, I kind of put it on the back burner.. until…
The Man and I were out to dinner – a date night! We had gone to a Japanese restaurant we enjoy, you know, the hibachi type where they cook in front of you?
After dinner, I began talking to a lady sitting with us – about – can you guess?
I told her about wanting to become a trainer… one thing led to another and she gave me the name of a trainer she knew who occasionally takes ‘apprentices’.
A day or so later, I received an e-mail from Maggie (not Dorks’ Maggie) and after a few e-mails back and forth, we met and well… I am knee-deep in a school book from the college she went to and my second day of “on the job training” (we do that 1-2 times a week). I am so very excited!
Goose started school and as of this writing – has STRAIGHT A’s!!! Woo hoo! We are working on getting him into ROTC so he can head to college right after HS and go into the Air Force or Navy as an officer. It’s proving a bit difficult as he goes to a private school and the public schools don’t seem to want to cooperate with the law and let him into their program. Fight the man! I am good at that.
That’s all for now…update on mom another day – the dogs need to go out and there is (always) laundry to do.
