Hey everyone - I've been quiet lately, just lurking in the background.... LOVING THE PUPPY PICTURES!!!!  I sooo want anothe
Anyway, I just wanted to run this theory about Aussies by you and see what your opinion is. (it's a little long, but interesting, so bear with me)

My neighbor, first time aussie owner and dog groomer.  Since getting her resue aussie last summer (a lifetime poodle owner), she has become a self proclaimed aussie expert (WHOLE other story).  She adopted this cute miniature 9 y/o blue merle that's real dosile and laid back.  My Lakota is, well, let's just say, she's not so laid back.  Anyway, she comes up to me one day while I was outside throwing the ball for Lakota (which she says is bad for a high strung aussie - i'll leave that for another post).... she says that an Aussie with blue eyes are "crazier, more high strung, less controlable" than an aussie with brown eyes; that she and the other groomers have noticed this with the many aussies that they groom.  She claims that 99% of the time when an aussie comes in with blue eyes, they are, while not necissarily bad, just a higher strung personality, while the aussies with brown eyes are more like big lap dogs. 

I guess my point is, while I have no idea if there is scientific "proof" behind her claims that the eye color makes a difference in personality; my personal experience has to somewhat agree with her.  (and i REALLY don't like agreeing with this lady, so please give me reason not to believe this). 

SO.... can we take a poll and see ????
 What color eyes does your aussie have and what is their personality (laid back, hyper, playfull, reserved, protective, docile, etc.).  I'm really curious about this.

I'm going to start making weekly & daily goals in hopes that I can accomplish more around the house, at work, and in my life in general.  Some people have this strange misconception that single life is much easier than being married.  I don't think that's the case all the time though.  What I wouldn't give, just once, to be able to call someone and say, "would you please stop at the store on the way home" or "I'm sick, will you let the dog out"..... you know, the little things.


While the week is almost over, there are still a couple of things that I'm wanting to get done....


There are so many other things that I would like to try to make a habit of, but I'm going to start with these little steps.  I've never been one to "set goals", but weight watchers has made me a believer in setting goals.  This is just me trying to use what I've learned in another area of my life.

I'm sitting here at work bored off my ass and was reading barmailblog and realized that I have no life,

So what has made me like this and how do I get motivated to live life.... whatever that is.....



What defines you as a person?  Is it how you treat people or all the fun, amazing, interesting things you do in your life? Is this why I can't find a man... am I just too boring???

I REALLY don't want to go to work today :(  Therefore, I am sitting at the computer complaining about it instead of getting up and getting ready.  I really need tofind a motivation for work since I just got a raise, but it's been so slow lately.  It's not that it's been slow money wise, it's just that I'm caught up and apparantly the salesmen are running slack on their end.  That and budgets haven't been approve.

Oh well, here we go.

Went back to the Dr. yesterday.  I'm not completely well, but getting better.  He gave me another shot of steroids and antibiotics and put me on another week of steroids so I can breath.  He also gave me an abreva (sp?) inhailer.  I could actually breath when i laid down last night!!!   I slept like a ROCK for 6 hours only waking up once when I received a drunk call from an old friend at 1:30AM (tell about that at another time, long story)

I also weighed in yesterday and after a week of not really eating right and being on steroids and having the cramps I only gained 1.5 lbs!!!!  I was SHOCKED!!! 

I'm cleaning house today to try to get these germs out of my house - boy does it need it!!!   I'm really good at keeping the house straight, but I suck at the deep down cleaning - probably why I got sick in the first place....... wish I could aford Merry Maids!!!!  

LATER :)

It's back to the dr. today to see if I'm actually getting any better.  I don't feel much better, but I think it's because I haven't gotten much sleep. 

I have to go weigh in today too.  I'm not looking forward to it because I've pretty much been off program all week not really wanting to deal with it because I feel bad.  Oh well, I'll get there. 

Tonights the season finale of SG1!!!   CAN'T WAIT!   Heaven's I love that show!! 

Dude didn't call last night.  I was hoping he would have at least called and checked on me since i've been so sick.... no such luck.  It will probably be next week before I talk to him again since he's going to the hunting club for a work weekend to get ready for deer season.  He'll have his girls next weekend, the weekend after that, i believe starts deer season...... probably be next year before I see him again, IF i see him again.  

Wish me luck at the dr.

I'm sitting at work only because my boss actually can't live without me..... I'm ahead on my work by a week and a half, have absolutely nothing to do, yet I'm sitting here sick as a dog and scared to ask to leave.  They gave me a 10% raise friday, if that hadn't happened i'd probably be gone now, but I feel obligated. 

I always feel obligated, not only to work, but to everyone in my life.  I'm unsure why I haven't changed this about myself, in the past all it has caused is resentment because I give and give yet never get from anyone.  Hell, I can't even get my dad to come help with plumbing problems, but that's a different issue.   I have always given to the ones who i know in my heart don't have the capacity to give in return.  I believe that I just hope that they will find it in themselves to feel something for me and return the jesture and maybe even love me. 

I've never been told "I love you" by a man.  How sad is that.  I'm 34 years old and have never experienced the true love of a man.  Sure, they liked me, they've treated me nice, they've had sex with me, but no one has ever been "in love" with me.  That makes me sad if i think about it too much.  Makes me feel extremely alone and unworthy.  But what do you do?  You can't make someone love you if they don't.  

OK, I'm depressed now.

If you knew me personally, you would know that I don't get excited about much of anything - I mean, I'm REALLY, REALLY laid back. But I am soooo stoked today!!!! i reached my 10% goal!!!! 14.4 lbs. total loss since Easter!!!!! 
Oh well, today was a great day. I reached my 14lb. goal, my water heater is fixed, and that bathroom faucet I bought 2yrs ago is finally installed. Now if that man I've been talking to would call me, I'd really be tickled.
