Priorities in a Crazy Day....

Well, my day started off really well...had a really good meeting with the CEO of the businesses I work with - when you work in internal audit and someone validates the work you do, always a good feeling! I was dressed for success in my black power suit...I thought I looked pretty good, and apparently I did. One of the other execs I had not seen in awhile asked me if I had lost weight! I was a little surprised, but took the complement. I told him it was indoor soccer season and I was playing three days a week - he was pretty impressed, and even more impressed when I told him I played with the boys!

This afternoon, things just sort of blew up - and I sort of flipped out. I made a few assumptions about a few things (never good to assume, you know what happens) and it looks like we need to do quite a bit of work in a short period of time. Sort of my fault, but not really - some decisions were made before I was hired, and I just assumed that everyone knew what those decisions were. That was not the case. So...that just really threw me out of focus. I had planned to get quick workout in...got behind there. I left to go home to get Chelsie late, and was toying with the idea of not volunteering. Traffic was light, so I decided we would go. On the way to the hosp, I realized I did not have treats for class - primarily because there were none in the pantry. GRRR...

But I stopped and got a bagel for dinner, and at Petco to get treats. We made it to the hosp just before 7, and as soon as we got there, I was glad we went. The first person we saw? LEONARD!!! We had not seen him in ages! He is so nice and he makes me laugh...he loves on Chelsie and talks to her. Tonight, he scratched her booty for a long time and she was jumping all over the place and rolling around on the floor while he did it. My little booty scratching whore....

As usual, she was great, and I was so glad I had made the effort to go. I know deep down there is really nothing more important I need to do than to share my beautiful baby angel with all these people. She was really, really good tonight - and was also really good at agility. She is settled at my feet, laid out on her side - which means she is tired. We did a lot of fast runs tonight...

A few quick updates -

1) The job gods have descended on Jaclyn's husband. He is now officially employed...with my former employer. Small world.

2) We did not get 40 pts this weekend, we got 16 and were 2-4. Her std run on Sunday was a top three career run. Made a really nasty course look easy, mom was so proud of her.

3) Basement progressing. Had a few set backs, but it is almost all the way primed and this weekend, should be painted. YEA. I am so done with this project...and my parents and brother have done all the work. Go figure.

We hope this finds everyone well. Is it spring yet?
