It's a better day today

Work went rather uneventful and was quite pleasant lastnight. We weren't busy at all and that can be rather boring as I'm the type that needs to stay busy...I hate being idle. I get bored to easy that way. The kids working lastnight had attitudes but I pretty much ignored them. As the night progressed the last 4 of us working got a little goofy and had some "water" fun. Yes your's truely participated and shocked them all. I have to admit...it made me laugh.
This morning I woke by 6 a.m. and wasn't expecting to. It was pouring rain outside and the poor pup just didn't want to leave the porch. There I was...in my jammies...if that's what you can call them...and my bathrobe out on the porch shoving him out into the rain so he could do his "business". My dog is a great dog and the most well behaved and loyal dog I've ever had in my life. Ever since he was 6 weeks old (when he used to be my son's) he was told to "go pee" when put outside. Yes....he even was taught "go poop". My son had a sense of humor. In all my years of having pets..this is the one and only dog that goes to the bathroom on command. After pushing him off the porch he stands there getting all wet and turns and looks back at me as if to say..."Mommy do I have to". Once I said "go pee"...he sauntered over to the grass and did the deed. Thinking he could sneak back up the steps and find shelter from the rain...he stopped in his tracks as I was standing there with my arm stretched out pointing back to the grass and said (yes you guessed it).."go poop". Sure enough...off he went. LOL Is that not the funniest thing you have ever heard. My neighbors must all think I'm weird telling my dog to pee & poop. But hey..it works. He loves the hairdryer too. I think it's the thing he looks forward to the most after being wet. Some dogs like rolling in towels...he does too for a second...but he loves the hiardryer on him. I obliged him and then gave him a "cookie" for being a good boy. (sillyness I know)

I was blog reading this morning and came across this over at Steelcowboy's. Check it out. I relate to that post so much. I too feel just like I've been put in a tumbler and have been knocked around and beat up and I know I'll come out clean and refreshed. It's just going to take some time. It's amazing to me really, that after I ranted yesterday I came across things that I related to so much. Like the post my sister had on her blog yesterday. "My Miserable Childhood". I'm not sure where she found that, but I sure enjoyed reading it and related to it alot.

I wanted to really thank all of you that read my enormous rant yesterday and offered comments. I truely didn't expect anyone to take the time to read something so long and scattered about. I just needed to have that moment. Today is a better day and I'm going to go enjoy it. It's my day off and I need to go do something (in between the rain drops).

Hee hee! we used to have a Cocker Spaniel in my family who hated getting wet. If you didn't watch him when you let him out...he would wait untill you weren't looking and poop on the back porch! hahahah!
