Well, this post was pretty much "I forgot to release Logan from his down stay and he's still here an hour later" and I got suggestions on training him to lay on a mat for long downs, blah blah blah, use a timer, blah blah blah. NO. He has a down stay, and he has a long down. I don't want advice. I don't need to use a timer. I forgot to release him ONE TIME, and he was good and stayed put. I don't need training advice when I post about my dog BEING GOOD.

was struck down by the worst migraine ever earlier today, had to leave work almost immediately after getting there. came home, vomitted up everything iv ever eaten in my life, and died for like 7 hours. this evening i finally wake up and the arabic-who-doesnt-speak-english roommate has brought what i think is shawarmas and gave me some. whatever it is, its delicious, and im finally feeling bearable enough to look at things other than my eyelids. downloading doctor who and i hope i can get it to play on this ancient POS laptop :C

My dad almost died this summer, and he's having a really rough recovery. He went into everything skinny and lost sixty pounds.

I went over to my parents' house tonight, and when I got there he was making dinner. He had me taste the potato salad. I did, and stuck the fork back in. Now I'm really sick--tummy bug. It's awful.

It turns out he's had a stomach illness for a few days, so if I have the same thing, at least he can't catch it from me, but my mom and sister both ate the potato salad too, so I really hope they don't catch it.

We didn't realize he'd been ill-ill, because the reason he's still losing weight is that he's been vomiting...

Ugh. I'm sick AND I feel like a jerk. Bleh.

I'm supposed to go hiking tomorrow, and on Wednesday we're flying to Austin.

I just want to watch Doctor Who and cry, dammit, but I've conditioned myself to fall asleep to Doctor Who in bed, which makes it hard to have a regeneration marathon and cry my eyes out.

Found out wood floors are not going to work at the new house. I hate carpet!!

Waiting to get a couple bids on redoing subfloor but the floor guy thinks the beams have some different heights. Not such an easy fix.

All the colors, furniture etc Are based around the wood I picked out.

Can something please go right?!

What about tile or laminate? Laminate is probably out if it's because the floor's uneven, but tiles can be done on an uneven floor. I hate carpet too. I developed this hate recently when we ripped out our carpet and saw how disgusting it was underneath
