Think before asking stupid questions

I am at work and I have been now asked for the third time for documentation on a property that is part of an file we have. The lawyer is such an idiot if he only would read the stack of documents I gave him about the property and then make a list of all the outstanding questions he wants I could do what he asked all at once, instead he reads the papers one at a time comes to my desk after each page with his document requests, then goes back to his office and in another 10 mins or so he is back at my desk wanting more information. And this is of course after I have already submitted the first request he gave me. He is wasting my time and I can't get anything else done because I'm never finished with his request.....well screw him he can wait for this stuff till tomorrow I have other jobs to do now.
 
and now the other secretary is mumbling to herself and distracting me and getting bitchy when she asks a question and I don't respond right away....I'm trying to work here people.
 
Maybe it's the PMS talking but everyone is annoying the hell out of me and I can't wait for this day, this week to be over.
 
GRRRRRRR

I`m still around

Hello everyone I finally have a chance to do a post, lets see where should I start..........

I am in a little bit of a stitching slump because I have been so involved with the puppy of late, so I decided to start on one of my smaller train pictures that I was going to work on after SFS was finish. I hope it jumps start my interest again......it is Fairy Celebration #3 using fireworks thread from Polstitch (I think); I am still working on SFS at home but vary rarely, I think I have worked on it for 3 hours today which is more than I have worked on it all last week.

Now on to my puppy, he is so funny and is filling out nicely and considering how much he is eating I am not surprised. I crate him at night now which was a bit of a bumpy ride which I take full responsibility for because I didn't understand what needed to be done before locking the door on him. I find that it was safer for him to go in the crate since he was only just learning how to climb down the stairs and can't climb on furniture yet so since I don`t have a bedroom door my fear was that he would fall down the stairs in the middle of the night while I am sleeping so this way I know where he is at night, he is loving it now and actually climbs into it when he is tired or wants to play with his toys by himself LOL


He goes to the vet on Sat for his 3rd shot & I will weight him & talk to the vet about what needs to be done for his neutering. He also is chewing his hind leg something fierce so I want to know if there is some kind of cream I can give him to stop it & he has this bad habit of eating moss every time we go outside for bathroom time, so I would like to know if this a bad thing or if he will grow out of it.








Maybe next time it will be a stitch picture.

Little to no stitch being done.

As my title suggests I am getting very little stitching done.

I would say in the last 5 days I have stitched only about 2 hours if that......but this is the one time I am NOT complaining about that fact because something much more important has been keeping my attention.

I'd like to introduce FIZZGIG



He is a 13 weeks old and is a Brussels Griffon, he is currently 5 pounds and will probably get anywhere between 10 - 12 pounds when he is done growing.

He is my dog, I am not sharing custody with my mother, which is what we did with Pookie. I picked him up on Friday night so I have been very busy since then in dealing with his every want and need LOL.

I have come to realize that I do not have experience with puppies at all, we got Pookie when she was 6 months old and she was potty trained and knew her name as well as "No". Fizzgig on the other hand does not know his name, is pee pad trained with only the pees and chews, bites and/or licks anything he can get his furry paws on and doesn't like to go outside on the grass, especially at night (probably because of the pee pad training), I have never seen a dog that doesn't like the grass so it is strange to have to actually drag him outside to go to the bathroom.

I am completely out of my element but I'm having fun. My mother is babysitting him while I'm at work and he plays with his toys all day and has a few naps in-between. Brussels are a one person kind of dog, they bond right away with that person and they are their world, that pretty much has been set in stone since Saturday and it's me and when I leave the room and return moments later or on Monday when I went to work and came back he was overwhelmed when I returned that you can't help but laugh at him with his antics.

I have many things to teach him which are occupying my time, bedtime schedule, learning to walk on a leash, learning his name, going outside at night, not jumping up on people and most importantly not putting everything he can find into his mouth these are my top priorities right now.

I think I have an updated photo of SFS that I haven't posted yet so I might get that up here in the next couple days.

**Little funny story from last night I asked my mom to watch him while I went to my loft to change out of work clothes and the next thing I know he has gotten pasted the barricade and was on his way up two flights of stairs to get to me and then an hour later while visiting my parents I went to the bathroom and Fizzgig couldn't find me so he ran up the two flights of stairs again looking for me again. So now he can get up the stairs and knows where our 'house' is but going down the stairs is still too scary for him.

Holidays Over

Well I've been back to work for two days now and let me tell you it hurts LOL.  I haven't really worn proper shoes in 10 days and because of that the walking I have to do to get to the office is very painful, my ankles don't really appreciate the confinement.
 
There was a snowfall warning for my neck of the woods yesterday and I was actually looking forward to some snow, but none materialized.....I was so disappointed and today it is just rain on the thick side that's it which made walking to work so much fun!!!! *sarcasm*.
 
My stitching progress is going pretty well I didn't finish all the stitching on Summer Fairy Spirit before going back to work but a still made fantastic progress nonetheless. I will have to post an updated WIP picture of SFS soon. I have finished the yellow dress, most of the white wrap along and the final leave and flowers on the left. I am currently stitching the flesh colors of the arms, chest and face & a bit of the hair on the train and working on the border and the metallic portion of the wings at home so hopefully I will continue to move right along on it. Yesterday I didn't get much stitching done since I was in task mood that I carried on from work to home but at least I was productive in something.
 
Thanks for listening.
