It won't be so ok when he weighs 50 pounds!
Ahh I remember those days, Josefina was a "should I or shouldn't I?" Kind of puppy , Izze was the "up yours" & run the other way type ... Both are equally frustrating, you just want to while strangling them (not really) because they KNOW the command they just don't want to do them. >.<

6 months sounds about right. Recon is almost 8 months now and it has been coming/going. Mostly it was just him blowing off his recall twice about a month ago to go play with some Huskies by the pond. I had no reward on me and he knew it and was like "seeya later mom!" as he happily scurried to the pond. It's been ok since then, but he's getting a little more demanding and trying new things; like sitting on chairs!

Generally, he questions everything now. He'll wait me out to see if I'm gonna offer something BEFORE he does it... this has been resulting in 10 second sits as he slowly places his butt on the floor... he's getting more hormonal, though, too. I am constantly telling him not to hump SOMETHING. And he listens real well but BOY does he want to!

I am getting frustrated and stressy about all this house buying crap. Why is everything so expensive?

Seriously keep working myself into a near panic attack about being able to buy a house in a year or so.

Bubble bath. I need a bubble bath.

Bubble baths solve everything. I need a new tub, that's my vent.

My right foot is KILLING me like hurting so very very bad. I had to wear my alt pair of boots the other day because it rained & my others aren't tall enough to slosh through the flooded walker.

Well now I am paying for it because now the inside of my right foot (like btw the inside part of the arch & the underside of the ankle) hurts so bad that walking is agony & this is coming from someone who was kicked point blank in the shoulder by a horse & didn't even take OTC pain meds or go to the hospital.

I don't know what it is, since when I massage or run my feet nothing is topically sore, it feels like its deep in the foot somewhere..... I don't know :/

I bought a groupon for the hot tub gardens here and it doesn't start until Friday. I was so mad. I wanted to use that NOW.

My mom just told me my aunt called a few hours ago that she had taken my grandma to the ER. Apparently my grandma was out in her yard working and lost track of time, which isn't unusual, but when my aunt got there for dinner, my grandma went in and started cooking and "didn't know what to do next." Couldn't remember how to finish cooking I guess. I'm not really sure what that means. Anyway, my aunt thinks she had a stroke and she took her to the ER. They were supposed to do an x-ray (??) at 8. It's 10:30 and we haven't heard anything else yet.

My grandma has not been doing well for a while. The lack of information/weird conveying of what happened aside, this is, um, scary.
