REDHOTNESS. Cheer me up. See below.

But is it fair to respond back when he's going to take that as a signal that now there's a possibility I'm interested when I'm not?
Personally, I think it's respectful and polite to answer the email - you're extending the same respect to him that he's given to you. So there's my non-dating advice. Cute Customer that I asked out cancelled on me tonight, so I am obviously not qualified in any stretch of the word to give dating advice.

Nothing. Nothing at all. That's just the way it pans out.

My vent:

Step 1: Ask customer out on date.

Step 2: Customer says yes.

Step 3: Saurus does excited dance.

Step 4: Customer cancels an hour before said date, further confirming that I suck and no one wants anything to do with me.

I just give up. **** it all.

I'm ready to leave for vacation, like, now. I've worked seven days in a row now, twelve hour days, with at least six dogs per day, plus my student, plus cleaning, packing and dealing with out of control coworker, and staff meeting on Tuesday, I need it to be Wednesday so I can load up and GO.

I am so, so tempted to just say "screw it!" and have a small, small, small ceremony with just me in my dress, my family, and his parents. Reception can be dinner afterwards.

I actually pitched that idea to him in a letter, but we'll see. Lol

If we dont, the ceremony will be after a-school, and I'm torn between wanting to plan it and going all bride-zilla, or saying, "THiS IS TOO COMPLICATED!"

I'm actually giving everyone a lot of leeway in what they want to do, because I just don't care. But I asked Mike what his opinions were, and he said, "I want my dad's Charger as the get away care and I like purple. Other than that, go with it!" He will regret those words. Hahaha.

I totally wouldn't mind a "traditional" wedding, but it is made even more complicated when we won't know a date until, like, super close to the date. Eloping when we get the chance sounds so much more simple.
See, I never was one of those girls that had their wedding all planned out or anything. I did decide that I wanted (DH didn't really care) a church wedding with the reception, dress, etc. I don't regret it for a second--I have awesome memories, and it went very well-it's been 10 years and we still have random friends or family members that talk about how much fun they had. Those are memories that we just would not have had if we had eloped.

The most valuable lesson I learned from wedding planning (that can be applied to any event planning I think) is that it's as simple or complicated as you make it. If a certain aspect is very important to you (like the cake for example), then by all means get exactly what you want. However, if things like center pieces, invitation style, etc, are not a big priority-don't sweat it!

Give me this guy's name and address and I will kill him.

Did he give a reason? Did he ask to reschedule? I'd be pissed and never talk to the guy again. That's pretty douchey. I'm sorry.

Since I have been back, I have been running with Buddy (twice) unfortunately, its been so long that his pads weren't used to the rocks anymore so now his pads are sore , also I went in my new pair or hiking sandals, sans socks & now I have two pretty good blisters on the insides of each of my feet >_<

so we are both out of commission running wise for at least a few days ... maybe more for Buddy, boo ... its going to break his heart when I go without him

So hot in the room today that the thermostat stopped working. It is actually cooler outside, so I opened the window.

Got a small nap in today on the couch downstairs, but man this is miserable.

I'm not making enough money at my new job. I mean not making enough to even get by paycheck to paycheck. I only took a $1.50/hr paycut from my last job, but I drive so much for this new one that after paying my bills literally the rest of my check goes to gas. Nothing left for food, anything for the boys, nada.

I don't want to leave because I like this job and I really like my boss, but I don't think I can do it. And that terrifies me because I have no idea what I'll do instead. I'm coming to realize that the dog related jobs just don't pay enough, but I have... basically no skills elsewhere. So where do I go from here? Ugh. Super stressed.

My friend's dog was attacked by a pit bull while she was at her hotel for regionals. She wasn't even out her room door when the dog charged in and dragged her dog out into the hallway. Yep.... off leash pit bull in a hotel. Apparently my trainer's dog bit the pit bull owner when he went to try to kick the dogs apart so her dog was quarantined 10 days in another state. She missed getting to run at regionals. She was beaten up and bruised and bit on the hand by the pit. Pit was quarantined but the owners never picked up their dog and so it was probably put to sleep. I feel really bad for her and her dog. It is lucky he is so hairy because it seems like the pit mostly ripped out his hair and gave him a long scrape down his back and ripped his ear.

Seriously though.... I want to smack that owner. Why would you let your dog loose in a hotel hallway?
