    I can't find motivation to do these things and now that it's raining, with the temperature dropping... I've got zero motivation to go anywhere in my car in this crazy city!

    1) Finish getting ALL THE THINGS and ship a package to my BFF in Ohio. Of course it's all dog stuff I'm sending her but I need to find a super awesome card to throw in there still!

    2) Write a sympathy card to mail to Cappy's owner. I'm going to bawl writing it and I don't want to do that!

    3) Order textbooks. All of my heard-earned money is going to diminish so quickly!

    4) Figure out if I really want to present an argument about why I shouldn't have to take Behavior 1 and K9 training 1 in school (because if I have to take those I won't have time to take the second level, where I might actually learn something).

    5) FIND A JOB! I've applied to a bunch of places with no calls back, even after I've called to inquire about my application. A friend's been on the hunt for me and said I should try to get my foot in the door with a lab as they pay well and usually have flexible hours. I need to rework my resume for that and write a whole new cover letter template for that!

    HALP! I need motivation!

    I need to do this one!! Pay day is tomorrow so it'll have to wait until then.

    Actually most of my "need to do list" revolves around pay day. This will be a very depressing paycheck.

    1) Give the bird cages a super thorough scrub down

    2) Give my house a super thorough scrub down

    3) Sort through all the old photos and family stuff from my dads house

    4) List all the stuff I've been meaning to sell on eBay

    5) Buy and set up Solo's new cage in the bird room

    1 Clean the house. But I don't want to.

    2 Get to the doctor and start the process for getting my gallbladder out. Though really it's not going to make a huge difference, it's still going to be a long wait unless it's an emergency situation, so suffering through minor attacks (not really pain, but indigestion, gas, bloating and nausea) is life for a while longer really (and yes, I'm the life of the party these days).

    3 Trim the dogs. They had a bath and I didn't get to it but really really need to do it again. Of course now have to rebath them but oh well.

    4 watch the last episode of being human from last season so I'm ready for season three on monday. That I'll do. Yummy.

    5 fill out paperwork for a dog club, as well as the boy's school stuff. The boy's stuff will come first of course.

    Clean the ferret age thoroughly.

    Re-litter train the ferrets

    Start getting serious about getting Nacho and my three co-habitating if I'm serious about keeping Nacho.

    So your ferrets all live in one cage? Do they all sleep in a giant adorable ferret ball?

    A few things to do for work, including a DISC personality assessment, and reading up for a dentistry quiz we have on Monday LOL. Yep, we get quizzes.

    Juno could use a bath. She got all full of slobber at the dog park today.

    I need to bake cookies. Yes. Need.


    I feel like there are lots of other things I need to get done but I am probably purposely blocking them from my mind.

    My three live together in one cage, yes. And yes, they sleep in a ball of adorable. Nacho's alone, because he does not want to be in the sleep ball but my guys all try and force him to join them.

    rain can be a motivator if you know it means ...
    0 percent wait time at the post office. Done
    No waiting time when you have to wait in the car with the dog while you take your 88 year old Mother and your grandgirl to get their hair cut. Done
    I made it through bot of those, but to the rest of my list that started as soon as I walked in the door, it's a fail. I need motivation to complete the pile of needs to do inside. Rain I can handle. The temptation of the couch and 3 dogs on a cold day, too much.

    Megan, just drop Buzz off with me and you can't have him back until you are done!


    My list of things I need to do:
    -Mail Frodo's NADAC registration (eee!)
    -Clean the apartment.

    I think that's it. I love that that is all I need to do right now. Go me.

    Ugh, I've been meaning to clean off my desk... for the last year. One of these days I'm going to come home from work and the film crew from "Hoarders" will be in my home office.
