Rambles

October 22nd, 2009

This is going to be a bunch of babbling but it’s little things that are rollling around in my head that maybe need to find their way out so that I can hopefully sleep better tonight. I’m not sure it will make any difference, but it at least gives me a little break.

We just got in from taking another little walk with JJ. He had his first accident in the house a little earlier but I think he just couldn’t hold it anymore. I had been working and it was 3 hours since he’d been out so he needed to pee-pee. I didn’t punish him or even acknowledge it. I tossed a towel over it so the cat couldn’t get into it, and we went for a walk with him. He didn’t get praised, which he gets a whole lot of outside when he goes ‘potty’. It shouldn’t take him long to make the Pavlovian association. Marcel was a little annoyed, but I think considering we’ve had him 24 hours and he’s only had one accident inside, I think that’s pretty good. I know some doggies who have constant accidents before they are house trained.

In other news- I am having the urge to bake cookies. Chewy, gooey cookies. I won’t bake any though, because I’d more than likely eat half of them, and that is the last thing I want to do. Instead, I’ll think about them. haha

Oh, and I got a laptop- I haven’t had time to completely set it up, so it’s sitting in the living room collecting dust, but I have one :) Because I just bought it, I’m entitled to a Windows 7 upgrade ‘gratis’, which I need to order. I finally decided not to get the MacBookPro because I really wanted a 17-inch screen and I thought the prices were too much. My next desktop will be a Mac, that much I’m sure of. In the meantime- I hope to find some time to get to know my new laptop, and to install Office and a few other programs.

Ok- time to end the rambling- Marcel made coffee and I could use a cup. I could also use a hot bath. Calgon take me away!

    Yayy for you buying yourself a computer for home :) I really wanted the 17 inch mbp for home, but Marcel really pitched a fit about the price haha.. so I bought the Toshiba instead. It’s great though- what little I’ve used it.
