Got rain?

We do.

It’s POURING.  The road out front is flooded (perfect for splashing through with the car).  Preston has been singing the “it’s raining, it’s pouring” song over and over.  The dogs are sleeping (one squishy puppy on the couch next to me), and the laundry is slowly getting done. (slower now since I opened up my computer). I could curl up on the couch with a good book (I’m in the middle of Tribute, by Nora Roberts right now) and take a little cat nap.  I probably won’t, but I could.


I went to see about getting the new iPhone yesterday, thinking that since it was the second one it wouldn’t be such a big deal – boy was I wrong! The line was long and I had the goog with me, so no dice on that.  Turns out the global launch was a bit of a debacle anyway, what with the servers being overloaded by the thousands and thousands of people trying to buy new and update old.  Quite a mistake on Apple’s part this time.  Doesn’t stop me from wanting one, asap, though.  Problems seem solved this morning, now it’s just going to be a matter of finding one!


Bad news about the Magster.  She’s going to have to go after all.  🙁  She’s been so good, and seemed like she had really changed, but the other day she snapped at the little neighbor girl and at her brother as well when they were in our house.  No bite, more like a warning, but that was enough.  It’s odd because these are the very same kids she allows to hug and crawl all over her when we are outside in the yard.

Not only does it suck because we thought she was doing so well, but it sucks because the puppy has been getting some great playtime with Maggie, and Maggie was helping to teach her about going outside and such.  Not to mention the fact that the boys (and us) have been really enjoying having her around again.

Alas, it is not meant to be.  She’s house-aggressive.  For some unknown reason she feels like she needs to be super protective of us in the house. The thing with the little girl? I was right there and she was simply walking through the room when Maggie approached her, as if to sniff her, and the snapped at her. I heard her teeth click!! I was so mad and sad at the same time. So she has to go.  :cry:

I guess we’re not really meant to be a 2 dog family right now.


What else? Still trying to figure out the Chicago trip, still working on the blog here and there, and still trying to get the house cleaned.  Puppy starts puppy class tomorrow morning.

Still doing better with the less coke, more water thing, eating less, less junk. Gotta work on the activity a wee bit more, but the small changes are working!
