    The only two islands I've been to are Maui and Oahu, so I don't have a lot to compare it to. Now that I'm on the east coast instead of California, all our vacations have been to the caribbean or Europe, since the plane tickets to Hawaii are loooooooooong and $$$! One day we'll be back though :) My uncle's sister owns a bed and breakfast on Kauai that I'm hopeful we'll stay in at some point.

    I forgot to mention this in the flurry of stuff, but I got a letter in the mail from the ASSA that said "invitation to participate" on the outside. I thought that was kinda weird but since Auggie and I were at Sheltie Nationals last year (or two years ago?), I thought maybe it was an invite to come to Sheltie Nats again.

    Well, that's not what it was. It's an invite to participate in the performance section of their annual because Auggie got advanced performance titles.

    Of course participating means buying an ad, which isn't cheap, and then of course you have to buy the annual.
    I'm probably totally doing it anyway. Because it's Auggie.

    I survived my 2 kitty dentals today. :p

    And my tea actually stayed hot for most of the morning lol. So that's nice. Last time I brought tea to work, I obviously didn't heat the water up as much as I thought I did because it was like... lukewarm when I got to work. Ewww.

    Happy Birthday! Does anybody drink Hot Toddies anymore?

    You could probably skip the Jack Daniel's and it would still work somewhat.


    Well, today is a good day. One of those days where you realize that life-changing stuff really is possible. And I'm not talking about the end of menopause, THAT would be a post for the "Venting" thread because I don't think that's EVER going to end.

    The third contractor came over to look at my flooring and give me a quote on re-finishing the wood floors, and it's the most affordable quote AND he is the guy who came highly highly recommended...
    I'm pretty sure I will call him tomorrow and have him do it.

    I bought new dog beds, and since I put them down the dogs haven't been out of them! They're water resistant and tough, so hoping they don't get so stinky and ruined!

    Had my first day of classes today and loved all of them, even my back to back organic chem-organic chem-bio in the morning. Really happy that I got into an art class this semester too - I really missed drawing.

    We were supposed to have a video session for my English class tomorrow running from 6-8:30. BUT IT WAS CANCELED DUE TO THE COLD. :banana:

    The one good thing this nostril-hair-freezing weather has done.

    Josh said if I can figure out a loan or payment plan of some sort I can go through Karen Pryor Academy!!! This is a huge deal for me because I really want to go through KPA. It's expensive, but it will be so worth it.

    Just make sure this is what you want to do. I know (or at least this is how it used to be) that you could lose your certification if someone reported you for using aversive techniques, and I know you use a prong with Cricket. Just saying that it would REALLY suck to spend all that money, and then not even be able to use the KPA certification on your resume.

    But if it's really what you want to do then I say go for it!!

    (I could never be KPA cause I'd probably fail all the exams for saying "ah ah" too much :p I just can't seem to get that out of my training vocab, nor do I think I need to in every instance)
