    I am glad to have you guys here to went to met-wise and such. It took me a looong time to be able to take it... And still, if I take it with a carby meal, i know I'll pay for it... Like I did today. Thankfully I was home.

    I mean seriously. I never noticed until recently but my life is Friends. At least once a day something happens and I'm like "this is so totally like that episode of Friends."

    Except I'm not making about a million bucks per episode.

    I found a really awesome Chrome OS forum. I posted a (lengthy) intro, replied to a few threads, started a new thread...


    ...then I realized it has been largely abandoned for over a year :wall:

    I woke up this morning to a message from my doctor canceling my appointment for Wednesday, which means I took a day off of work for nothing. The procedure I'm having done requires anesthetic, so I can't really go to work/class afterwards, which is why I took a day off. I finally convinced the doctor that I couldn't do any days in October, I can't put any time off requests in for November because my boss is dumb, and I don't want to wait until December. So now I'm seeing a different doctor at a different time, but it's at least the same day. They did not understand that I have a job where I can't just not go into work on short notice.

    I spent two hours dealing with that, which put me behind on my cleaning day, so I was rushed.

    I took Jack on a walk before I left for class and we were accosted by this kid who would not leave us alone.

    I then went to my Parasitology class, which I loathe. I don't mind the lectures, but doing fecals are just not interesting to me. Give me blood any day.

    And I came home expecting a nice clean house the way I left it, but the human tornado left laundry and dishes and stuff everywhere, so I got to clean up after her when I got home. I had requested one thing for her to pick up at the grocery store and she failed to get it.

    My family is coming to stay with us this weekend and they informed me of this TODAY. I like them, I like spending time with them. However, since I had zero notice, I will be at work all weekend, and they're irritated that I won't be there. They are kid people and I am a dog person and that doesn't mesh well for us. So when my cat scratches their kid because the kid was irritating the cat and I wasn't there to supervise, it's my fault.

    And to top it all off, my boss is quickly spiraling downward from quirky to batshit crazy. And the one person who agreed with me is leaving at the end of the week and I'm afraid I won't be able to tolerate much more of this.

    I'm now curled up in bed with a dog, and I'm going to watch Being Human and go to bed and end this craptastic day.

    Woke up this morning and I have a small red spot on my right eye. I don't think it's pink eye. I think I just have a rub on my eye because I failed to completely remove my mascara last night.
    I would go to the doctor except I don't have any money, so instead I'm going to just assume it's not pink eye because I'm not all gunked up like the time I ACTUALLY had pink eye. And if it doesn't get any better I guess I'll go since my doctor's office bills me and it's like three months before they start being like "hey! you still owe us money!" so I can get away with not paying them right away.

    Georgie's new chute is STILL not finished being built, we ran into issues laying down the traction strips. I'm thinking I need to skip the gym tonight so I can work on it and get it done for her, which makes me mad because I don't want to skip the gym and also GEORGIE ISN'T EVEN MY DOG so why am I the one busting my butt on this? My dogs don't need this kind of chute built. They are ballsy and stupid and they don't care. Payton barrels through stuff and he's like ten miles away before he goes "HEY IT WAS KINDA DARK IN THERE!!" Georgie is the one who is a sensitive over-thinking little pansy and doesn't want to do it. The extent of what my mom did was sewing the fabric chute. My dad has been helping me with everything else. He literally had to come save me when I was cutting the PVC support frame because I'm terrible at math and was failing and almost started crying. So I'm mad and frustrated and running out of time and I'm feeling like Jessie in the drug episode of Saved By The Bell, screaming "NO TIME?? THERE'S NEVER! ANY! TIME!"
    So this is really exactly when I NEED to go to the gym. But I probably won't.
    Boo x 1 million.

    I wasn't drowsy last time I took it (I actually had more energy), but this makes me glad I started Adderall at the same time lol



    This. I'm on the extended release, though, so at least it doesn't hit until after I get home from work. That's a very good thing, because when I'm working the nearest bathroom is QUITE a ways away.

    *hugs to all of the venters* Deep breath and find your inner calm.

    My day's vent has to do with dogladies who have dog businesses and feeling captive to them.

    So, I've not done anything agility related since about June when I bought the house. Now that money is a bit more steady I've been trying to register for classes. It feels like a gong show.

    1. I email the facility I've been going to for the past year or so (until June), saying I'd like to join their next session. They say they'll email me when the new session starts up. They don't. I'm kind of butthurt about it and feeling petulant.

    2. When the next session is due to start I email the facility again, letting them know I'm still interested. They request advanced payment to hold my spot in a class. I tell them no, partially because I'm butthurt about #1 and partially because I've got better things for that money to do than send it to sit at the facility before classes start. I book a private lesson somewhere else. I ask them to email me when the new session is ready to start up and let me know if there's room. I hear nothing back.

    3. I email the facility again, letting them know I'm still interested, if there's space. I'm told there's no space in the class I want, but how about an earlier class? Earlier classes start earlier, obviously, (making traffic beastly and doubling my travel time) and are almost an hour shorter for the same amount of cash. I say no thanks.

    I just feel like I'm constantly nagging this facility. It shouldn't be this difficult to book a damned class. I keep getting the distinct impression that they don't want me there. Maybe I pissed them off by declining to reserve my spot in advance, sure. I want to book lessons elsewhere, but they're so far away it makes getting there/back difficult & only something I can do on the weekends. Giving up a big chunk of my weekend for 6 weeks in a row sucks, and privates are expensive.

    I've had issues with the organization at this facility before. I've wasted trips out there for classes that were supposed to go ahead but didn't, and I've attended fun matches that were ultimately a waste of time and money. I keep going back since they're relatively close by, hold evening classes that I can get to and have a nice facility -- they're really the only option for me right now. They just seem like they're good with dogs, but not good with business or people.

    I have the knee-jerk desire to let them know that I feel dismissed and that I'll just go to another facility instead, but I think that'll just end up coming back to bite me in the ass in the future. But **** I want to be petty.

    This isn't the first time I've felt held hostage by my region's dogladies, and I'm just about all out of patience to cope with it amicably.

    I think I'll just write them off and book a private for myself this weekend. I just feel like I shouldn't have to nag and fight for the privilege of giving someone (a lot of) money.

    Basically all of my students in my afternoon class had this attitude yesterday--from the other side of the bench it's super discouraging.

    Bleh, I feel dirty.

    We had to euthanize an older Lab today (young senior), simply because the owner thought she was painful due to her just laying around more than normal. She had some mild arthritis issues, but that was it. Sweet, sweet dog. She was *covered* in ticks. O said, "Well, she's a farm dog. She always gets ticks." Hmmm....maybe the lethargy and limping was a symptom of Lyme disease, no? O swore up and down the dog was going blind...her eyes were completely fine.

    So not fair for that poor dog, although she's probably better off now than where she was. But she deserved another 5 years of life, getting the care she needed.

    Ugh.

    My brother broke his smoke detector at 6am. All of them in the house are linked together, so they ALL went off. And then kept going off every 5-10 minutes. Gavroche is TERRIFIED of the smoke detector sound, to the point of shaking, panting, and sitting on my head. So, I was awake an hour earlier than I needed to be, and got to sleep 3 hours later than usual because I forgot about an assignment. I'm so tired and annoying >.<

    At least I have two days off this weekend (I can't remember when my last day off was, but it was probably 3 weeks ago). If anyone ****s with my days off, they're going to be very sorry. GRARGH!

    Cricket is having a dental and extraction tomorrow. I'm super nervous so I can't sleep because the idea of putting my dog under for surgery of any sort scares the hell out of me. Someone please tell me everything is going to be ok and that my girl isn't going to die on the operating table. My mind keeps jumping to worst case scenario and I'm on the verge of having a panic attack about it. This sucks. I really wish she didn't break her darn tooth.

    Probably won't take the nervousness away, but if it helps, the anesthesia protocols these days are so improved. Many leave them sitting upright and alert quite a short while into the recovery period.

    "Obamacare is the worst thing to ever happen to America"

    REALLY??
    REALLY?!????
    SLAVERY!
    GENOCIDE!
    WAR!
    HUNGER!
    SICKNESS!
    TERRORISM!
    MASS SHOOTINGS!
    SLAVERY!!!!

    I can't deal with people today.

    Not agreeing with Obamacare is your opinion.
    Thinking it's the worst thing to happen in a country that has killed and bought/sold people like livestock makes you an asshole.

    And let me be exceptionally clear.. people aren't calling you an asshole because you are a republican.
    PEOPLE ARE CALLING YOU AN ASSHOLE BECAUSE YOU ARE AN ASSHOLE
