Ok I will admit I am a hard ass when it comes to the behavior of Fribley. I do not let her out of my sight when I take her to work, I expect her to listen, to play nicely with the other dogs and to be polite to all humans.
When we are at home or on walks I still expect her to behave...I am a hard ass parent. I wouldn't expect any less or more from a human child.
Today's issue, ok everyday's issue my co-worker brings his dog to work. Ok not problem there, but he doesn't watch her, take her out, discipline her when she picks fights with other dogs, watch her when she scares clients, vendors or the Mail Carrier. I CAN'T HANDEL IT ANY MORE!!!!
Today I was in the Accountants office Fribley was playing nicely with our Production Coordinators pup. When big dog came in and started bugging the girls. Fribley told big dog NO, in no uncertain terms. I of course made Fribley take a time out, but it really bugs me that if I were to tell co-worker his dog is misbehaving he still wouldn't do anything. So now I have a sad little dog and I feel guilty that the other dog was not disciplined.
AUH...Bad dog parents bug me to no end!
Ten (I was a little tired) years.
Ones life changes a lot in nine
ten years. Kids grow up, people grow up, everything changes.
In the past ten years I have really changed. I was still in university. I wasn't sure what I really wanted to do with my life. I was planning on returning to the Santa Fe Opera for my second season. I was also driving home every Monday & Wednesday to visit with my mom and help my little sister take care of her.
My mom had be diagnosed with Lung Cancer the previous May. She had been moved into my parents living room and we had nurses coming in three times a day to give her treatments and pain meds. My little sister was mom's main care giver. She would call me with the Mom update and complain that mom kept calling her by my name.
February 14, 1999 was the last time I spoke to my mom. It was the sunday before Lent. I called home every Sunday. I had called home every Sunday since I had left for University. I knew this would be the last time I talked to my mom because she told me "Sis I want to go home". I told her that I thought that was a good idea but that I would miss her. I then went to work. My boss was upset with me because I was ten minutes late for work. Ten minutes really didn't mean anything to me that day. I told him that I spoke to my mom for the last time, he told me that I shouldn't think that way. But I knew.
Monday night I went to the library and didn't get home until 4am. I laid in my bed and cried my self to sleep. I knew that she was gone before anyone else. My mom died on Tuesday February 16, 1999 at approximately 4:30am. At 5:45 on Fat Tuesday I received the called to tell me that mom had died. My mom loved Fat Tuesday.
Ten years ago... My little sister had a one year old little girl. My little brother was expecting his son. My older brother had been dating the woman who is now his wife. I was 22 years old and had no idea who I was.
Today... My little sister has a 10 year old young lady, 7 year old little girl, 1 year old little boy and a wonderful husband. My little brother has a 8 year old son and a wonderful woman in his life. My older brother and his wife have a 8 year old girl, 6 year old little girl and 4 year old son. I have come out, moved to Chicago, met and married my wonderful wife and have a ever evolving job. My dad is with a wonderful woman who makes him truly happy.
Some days I wake up and think I can call my mom. Other weeks I don't even think about her. I have a little more direction in my life. I would not have become the person I am today if I didn't loose her, but it still really sucks!
Would she be happy with the person I have become? Would she have accepted my wife? Would my dad be as happy as he is now? Would we all have become who we are now?
What will the next ten years bring to my family?

As you all know Jelly Bean is Crazy! Well this week she has been extra entertaining. We have a large mirror that is in our entryway until I can deliver it. We knew that Jelly Bean would want to check it out, but we thought she would loose interest. We were wrong. She keeps going back to see the "new" kitty that the mommies allowed into her house. Some of the time she just sneaks up on the mirror but there are times that it scares her. We will be watching tv and will have a streak of gray with a very puffy tail. She will then go back to pick a fight. This has been going on since Monday and she keeps going back for more...I do have a special kitten.
She did top the "new" kitty last night. When I get home from work I usually wash my face. Jelly will come flying into the bathroom and supervise. That is usually fine. She jumps up on the toilet seat and puts her front paws on the sink to watch. Well last night I got home and went to use the bathroom before washing my face. I lifted the toliet seat and started to undue my belt when I heard a splash. I turned around thinking I had knocked something into the toilet to see a streak of gray hopping with three wet paws into the dinning room.
My poor little special one. Here she was planning on helping mommy wash up and she got a toily bath. She did get her cuddle time after she dried off.
I really try not to resent people. I try to be nice to all people no matter how much they may hurt me. I am tired of people who feel they are entitled or owed something! Not that I would have told the former owners and upper management what I really thought about how they treated their employees or me, but I think they should know.
Only one of those people are working for the new company that I am working for. He acts as though he never did anything wrong, never stole from his employees. He did! He stole money from my health insurance, my 401K, and me. While he was doing this the company was still paying for his trips, CostCo shopping, and other stuff.
I thought he was adapting to the New Company well. I was wrong! He feels that if he wants something done or bought it must be done now. I am sorry I am trying to run a company here...there are priorities...Hello you are not the BOSS any more.
FUCK YOU MISTER I AM THE BOMB! YOU SUCK AND I AM VERY ANGRY! IF IT WASN'T RUDE I WOULD SPIT IN YOUR FACE!!!!

I don't know if this should make me sad!

What Rose Is Your Soul Bound To?
Your soul is bound to the Rose Bud: The Naive."I keep all of my secrets somewhere inside and though I haven't let myself shine to the world, I'm good for something but too good to give to you."The Rose Bud is associated with innocence, curiosity, and confidence. It is governed by the god Cupid and its sign is The Dewdrop, or Puppy Love.As a Rose Bud, you may have grand ideas about love and you may well be inexperienced. You tend to be optomistic, idealistic, and curious, but it's just because you like being a positive person. You also may have high thoughts of yourself, and can come off a bit conceited, but it's just a mask to hide your lack of experience.
