Jin is free the rest of today, tomorrow, and Saturday. It's only three days, but it's much better than what the rest of his schedule will be like this month. He'll be lucky to be home a grand total of 10 days this month.

No puke today from the baby! Shes now 8 lbs 1 oz and Jeremy is suppossed to be getting called for his interview any minute now.

HIm getting it is a double edged sword but one I can deal with. We will have to be in two seperate states for a couple months until everything can be sorted out but the money and being able to move our family to the area we want to be in without him having to work his way up to Manager is worth it. Thankfully we will be able to visit alot of weekends and we live in a day and age with skype and everything else.

That is awesome news FG!

I took my dogs out to work on tricks for our trick show repertoire and discovered that they have even better stays than I realized! I'm working on getting them to hold stays on upturned buckets while another dog is working for future show use and figured I'd have to do a fair amount of re-placing them, but only Snipe broke the stay more than once!

Some of the distractions they were exposed to while on stays:
- Aeri tugging with me, including being swung around in the air and me rolling on the ground
- Snipe doing flirt pole
- Z jumping through hoops and doing agility jumps/tunnels at speed
- Kes playing with frisbees (catches, jumping over my leg, weaving between my legs, all with barking)
- Aeri doing a long jump and crashing the poles a few times
- Kes retrieving
- Ziva spinning and crawling on the ground
- Kes figuring out where I hid treats under cups while I sat on the ground
- Neighbor taking her trash cans out to the curb
- Another neighbor watering flowers with a hose
- DH coming home (driving up the drive, opening the garage door, and walking out to where I was)

Soooo awesome to see them performing so well!

Thanks! I am supposed to be hearing tomorrow...

I am SO IMPRESSED with this! So impressed! How did you do it? Did you work up to it or just work on stays separately and see how it went? I am afraid with mine, once one breaks, the dominos fall...

I got lucky? LOL we worked on staying on buckets while in the house and with me preparing meals, moving around, etc., but I took a leap of faith today and "just did it".

Snipe used to run off, so working in our front yard with her not being the center of attention did wig me out a bit, but she did well considering where she was a year ago (running loose in our neighborhood as a 5 month old!) and even just a few months ago (not trusted off leash unless we were in the boondocks). She did break a lot more than the other dogs, but she recalled and responded to being re-placed over time. She only needed to be re-placed once for a given distraction and then she was good - the defined area of the bucket top really helps I think.

Well, I sent off my e-mail telling the guy I was accepting his offer for a job. I am sad to be leaving the radio station and excited for new opportunities all at one time. Yesterday after learning there was nothing the radio station could do to keep me, I left work and went out to my car, took a deep breath, then burst into tears. And I couldn't figure out why I was crying. I hate it here. I just don't know.

And now begins the time period when I get to start using the phrase, "What are they gonna do? FIRE ME??"



ETA: Oh yeah - and my new range and microwave get delivered to my house tomorrow! Except we don't have the old floor up, haven't even bought the new floor, and I haven't even ordered my cabinets. Whomp whomp... I get to have a brand new range just sitting in my kitchen for who knows how long. YEEEAY.
