Wow!  It's been a really long time!  How have you been??  I've been up and down, as usual, but mostly up.  I'm moving in with my wonderful boyfriend in just three days!!  Got almost all my stuff packed up and am just waiting for Friday to come.

Almost got a new dog tonight!  He and I were relaxing on the couch when we heard a little thump.  We turned around to see the cutest dog lying outside the door and giving us the sweetest eyes.  We let him in and gave him a little food and water.  He couldn't have been more than 6-8 months old and was so well-behaved.  We all went back out on the back patio, and he just laid down at my feet and enjoyed the lovin'.  We stayed like that for a long time discussing what we should do.  Then he stirred and took off towards the woods.  He stopped at the edge and turned to look at us like he wanted to come back, but he was most likely just saying goodbye.  I looked out the back door the rest of the night and drove around the neighborhood a few times before going back home.  I really wanted him.  Hopefully he has a family and is back with them right now.

How do you not piss off a teenager?

I pissed a co-worker off yesterday.  She's 17... that should about sum it up.  I called her out on the attitude she swears she doesn't have but that tends to come out every single day.  She's a sweet girl mostly, so I hadn't said anything for over a year and just couldn't hold it in anymore.  Everyone's usually all, "Oh, that's just her.  She's just a teenager."  The stuff she gets away with because of that!  Just because you're a teenager doesn't give you the right to disregard the simplest of common courtesy.  Especially at work.

I waited until no one was around, but I should have waited until I had calmed down some more.  I came off more confrontational than I should have and probably could have been more effective had I not been.  I'm never like that, and it bothered me all night.  I'm not sure if I was upset because I hurt her feelings or if I was upset with myself for getting that way.  I'm trying to let it go now.  What's done is done, and I can't change it.  Maybe we can both learn from it.

On a lighter note, the boyfriend met the parents last weekend.  He was really nervous and quiet, but they liked him a lot.  I met his mother the weekend before that, which also went pretty well.  She seems like a sweet lady.  He and I are still pretty stoked to be moving in together.  I'm over at his place pretty much all the time anyway, and I hate leaving every night.  I really miss spending time with my pets too, so two birds, one stone.  He's excited to be having a dog again and has all sorts of walking plans.

Come on end of the month!  Wow... moving in three weeks.  I really should start packing.
