Good morning, Beautiful Creatives!
Okay, so maybe it is not quite a manic Tuesday, but the Manic Monday song ran through my head as I was trying to figure out what to title this post…so there ya go! 🙂
My day of taking micro baby steps to be a better me than I was the day before was a success! If I may say so myself!
I’ve decided to keep track of my baby steps in a small, pocket-sized, notebook. That way I have no excuse not to write it down. I thought that this way would also give me an easy, electronic-free way to look back and see how far I have come in my progress!
I just counted and I ended up with 39 things on my list, and a few of those things were:
- Lunch with Papa Jay and Crystal
- An afternoon walk
- Play with the puppies
- When they did something they are not supposed to, I stopped to remember that they are still puppies!
- I had a healthy breakfast
- Purchased enough slim hangers to replace every regular one we have in the house – project closet purge is well on it’s way
- and climbed in bed early to read…a quick note on this one, I was soon interrupted by pre-bedtime-spazzy-puppies, and reading did not commence. It is dang near impossible to ready with these 2 little hooligans around!! 😉
So, that is just a sampling of how I did yesterday. I think I did a lot of things really, really right, and I still did a lot of things that I can still improve on. As for today, I am going to keep tracking my micro successes, one thing at a time!
HOWEVER, the thing I am most excited about today is that today is the first day of our girls’ puppy training classes!!
and whew, I thought this day would never come!
For the most part Gracie and Bitsy are well behaved girls! Okay, that might be a lie, but I think they try!
Gracie is super friendly, social, and just loves E-V-E-R-Y-B-O-D-Y!!!!
Bitsy, well, let’s just say she has other attributes!! 😉
She is a spazz, is terrified of anyone and everyone, gets really vicious when she plays, and once out of the house she is loooooooooong gone!! She is a wild child that just can not be tamed!! Which is really cool, but also has caused a lot of extra WTF??? commentary in our little household!
I am really hoping that puppy training will help, because we cannot afford to have Cesar Milan come to our home and show us how to let Bitsy know that we are the pack leaders, not her!
She does have her awwwwww moments too, mind you – she is the best car passenger! She loves watching everything happening outside, which is awesome!!
Ooh! My alarm to head out to work just went off, so I have got to zippity-do!! I will let you know how puppy school goes!! Until then…
Here is to a Beautiful Creative Day!
