So today, Boston graduated from puppy class, and in great style I might add. Not only did we actually show up to class, unlike half the class, but he actually showed that he knew how to do all the things he was supposed to have learned in class! ATTA BOY! Now I've just gotta get him to do that when he's outside of class and we'll be set! But for now, we'll take this as a small step to being a good dog! So far his most consistent trick is falling asleep on my lap while I'm driving my work truck... Well done, Boston. Well done.

I Just Don't Know

Why is it that when you think you've got everything figured out, it becomes blanantly obvious that you have NOTHING figured out?

How come when someone who you care a lot about finds themselves in the middle of a shitty situation, they are never sure what to do about it, even when the answer is so clear you just want to grab them and yell it in their face? I can't decide whether it's because it's harder to see the facts when you're in the middle of it, or because you don't WANT to admit it when you can see things right in front of your face. I just don't know...

Why is it that when the classic "timing is everything" cliche comes into play, it's never by much? It's never 10 years too late, you're never 2 hours late for work, you don't come up $40 shy on the bill; It's "A Day Late and a Dollar Short" for a reason. However, the good thing about that is that often times, you can run it as credit and come up with the $2 for the bill, you can speed up to hit the traffic lights and make it to work on time, and you can wait a few months for a potentially great thing. BUT, what if you get a ticket for the close call on that one yellow light? What if you get an overdraft fee on the account for paying for that dinner? What if you pass up something that was right for you, while you wait for that "potentially great" thing, and then that "potentially great" thing never pans out? Then what? Are you worse off than before? Was it worth taking the chance on it? Again, I just don't know...
