(Another) One of Those Days October 26, 2011Posted by Toy Lady in random stuff.
This week is already shaping up to be an exercise in frustration.
I could certainly tell you about how Monday’s obedience class went – including not one, but TWO dogs who seem to have a grudge against our Jarly. And he’s not one to take that lightly. No (ahem) girl dogs are going to push HIM around!
Yeah, good times.
Though, honestly, he was very good – we were able to “redirect” him without a problem – each of the other dogs had to be taken out, but not our Jar – he just went right back to, well, not quite heeling.
Peeps’s mom is considering closing the New Jersey house for the time being and spending the winter here in Rochester.
Either that or she’s humoring us and is planning to continuing doing exactly what she’s been doing, which is, um, well, I’m not sure, exactly. But not packing to move, that’s for sure.
And, of course, the economy being what it is (toilets and sewers come to mind), many of our clients are going crazy to refinance their existing debt. Not that I blame them – we just refinanced our mortgage last week and dropped the interest by over 2 points, and I’ve got peanuts for debt compared to some of our clients.
That all means that I’m bending over backwards to hurry and get this done – quick before the rates go up!
And have I mentioned I’ve been under the weather? Yeah, not so nice when you’re staring at columns of bond payments and interest rates and yields. My brain hurts.
But perhaps worst of all?
I just bought a Flip video camera through Woot and FIRST I had to FIGHT to get the Flip software loaded and installed on my STUPID WINDOWS VISTA computer (I am convinced that Windows Vista is an instrument of Satan), and then, when I played back the completely adorable video I got of Jar and Thunder, well, it was not good.
The actual picture quality was fine, don’t get me wrong.
Think Blair Witch Project – only with dogs. And a lot of leg lifting. They do need to pee a lot when they’re together.
But the video is terrible – shaky and wobbly and they keep running out of the frame, only to zoom back in, frolic a bit, and zoom back out.
inflict share it with you, but, honestly, I’m afraid it would make you queasy.
I’m going to have to dig that tripod out, I think.
