The last couple of days at work have been killer. I'm glad they're over and sad that they will eventually reappear in the next couple of weeks.

I had a vendor coming in from Canada to give us a demonstration on software we might be interested in purchasing. I got everything set up: getting them into the building, finding and setting up meeting rooms for both days, setting up the meetings that were going to happen in said meeting rooms, directions and hotel information to the vendor, permission to bring foreign nationals on site, lunch for the 5 hour demonstration and calls to multiple technology departments. It took a whole day of me doing nothing but and in the end, the vendor got sick and had to reschedule. Man!!

So I got everything canceled yesterday and will reschedule everything again for next week. Ah well.

I got into the pool after work yesterday! 2nd time this year and it's only the end of July. September better be a hot non-rainy month! A friend came over to swim for a while and hang out. He helped skim the pool while I was vacuuming and then, when the top step cracked, helped me take that off and reattach the stairs. I don't know if they sell that piece separately or not but I'll have to figure something out. We went out for dinner and hung out here after. It was a good, relaxing way to decompress after the last 2 days.

I have a home coming to look at the puppy tomorrow night. I have to get the others listed online after I take their pictures. I got a call about two more that need to be placed but I need to wait until one of the rescues and Neutron go home. I'm hoping I can place Reco soon as Tweak just does not like him and will herd him while baring teeth the entire day. I'm trying to capture the behavior and put a smile cue on it. It's just a little harder to click and treat with 8 dogs bounding up to you for a cookie at the same time.

I read that MA might allow gay non-residents to marry here - the law was appealed and is now in the Governor's hands. One more step in allowing all people to be treated the same way. Good for us. :)

Oh! The photo shoot went really well! Donna got a ton of pictures of Tweak, Freddie, Millie & Pedro doing various things. I can't wait to see the proofs! I'll post the link once they're up.

Tonight I'm going to attempt to clear coat the bookcase. I know, don't faint. It's taken me months to get to it but it's really on the list of things to do today. :) Hopefully the weather will cooperate and I'll actually be able to get it done.

We'll see you tomorrow - same bat time, same bat channel.
