Random Thursday

Today I was talking with one of my techs about first impressions and she shared with me what her first impression was of me. She told me that she thought I was too quiet, very timid and probably would not last. She said that within a few weeks she realized how wrong her opinion was. This particular tech said that I taught her not to judge a book by it's cover. I had another tech tell me that her first impression of me was that I was "nerdy". I have been called a lot of things and nerd is not one of them. I just don't see it.

Did you hear who is coming to visit me this weekend???

Sadie will be staying with me Saturday night and I am so excited. Am I weird to be so excited for a dog to come visit? Last time Sadie stayed with me I allowed her to get up on the couch and bed; which she does not do at home. Well, for some reason she decided that she really liked sleeping on the furniture and continued this at her home....for 3 long months. I was concerned that MJ and her Cowboy would not allow Sadie to come stay with me. When MJ asked me if I could watch Sadie I told her that I would not let Sadie up on the bed and would keep her off the couch. Later in the day I got a message from Cowboy saying she could do what my dog does. Yay!!

We are in for some pretty major storms tonight and I am kind of excited about it. I have this new love of thunderstorms. I made a comment to someone yesterday about how the heat doesn't seem to bother me as much this year and I think it's because I am not smoking. I always felt like I could not breathe in the heat and now it just doesn't seem that bad. Damn cigarettes......

Wow....this was a pretty random post wasn't it.

What a cute baby girl...Cowboy is thrilled to let her stay with you because he knows she will be well cared for. He's reconsidering the whole not on the bed thing and has put her blanket on the spare bed. We'll see how that goes.

You don't see nerdy? Huh.


Oh, that's gonna cost me! Just kidding!! Really! Quiet, yes! At least at first! The techs thought I wouldn't last at my first job, either. I showed 'em, 14 years!!

Ahhh, you and Sophie have fun with Sadie! I love that face!

I'm so glad you quit smoking. SO glad. :)

Not a dog expert but I think they can get the idea that something is allowed at friends houses but not their own?
I love t-storms too...midwestern storms are the best because you can SEE them!

Enjoy your visit with Sadie!

Oh I wish we had a whiz banger of a t-storm coming our way. Maybe just maybe we'll get a storm at the Beach. That would be the awesomest!

I've spent three years trying to GET Laddie to come on the furniture with me, and he just won't do it. Wish I could send him to you for a weekend, maybe you could teach him. :)
