Yup, I’m just plain tired. I travelled to the wedding on the weekend: 5 hours of driving each way. Got home and unpacked, just so that I could pack my bags again to fly to Calgary for work (just over an hour flight each way). And tonight I’m heading out again . . . this time for a dog show. My mom keeps asking me if I really have to finish Billy, or can I stay home and rest this weekend? Well, after investing time and money in earning the first 8 points, it would be a shame to quit before getting the last 2. So off we go . . .
Things are starting to get busy around here again. I don’t actually start attending classes until the end of this month, but since one class is an independent study class with a paper due at the end of it, I really should get started on the research (ahhh, the familiar opening call of the procrastinator). I’ll have been away two weekends in a row, with two trips through the week as well. And there’s no shortage of things to do at work or at home either. I think my friends are starting to forget what I look like!
It’s less than a month until Billy goes now, so I have to train some manners into him too, so his new mom doesn’t think I’m a complete heathen when it comes to raising dogs. I don’t really think she knows what she’s getting into, despite my many warnings. She sure is excited – it makes me smile just thinking about what a wonderful pair they will be (until he eats her shoes/underwear/money/whatever). And Farley will enjoy the brief peace and quiet, until a new puppy enters our lives.
I’m almost done my book about punctuation – a book report will follow soon!
