Hi there - I'm back after doing Disc 25
I love to work my back, love those exercises!
My weekend exercise plans hit the skids because our neighbors decided to have a party - actually they decided to have their entire family (and some friends) camp (in campers mostly) in their back yard - all weekend. No problems with the party plan really, but they carry it very far - booming music where our house is vibrating, yelling, etc... until almost 3 a.m. both Friday and Saturday nights... And our back yard connects to theirs. (We call them our "neighbors in the back yard" - the house wasn't there when we built, and when they built, they planted their house as close to ours as was possible for some reason - so they are right there). So, I spent Saturday and especially Sunday exhausted, because I slept about 3 hours each night due to all the noise. Last night, they must have been burned out (thank goodness - I don't think I could have gone another night with 3 hours and not go completely ballistic), because all was pretty quiet last night - so I got a normal night's sleep. Feeling all good now.
The rest of the story for our weekend - Saturday, our foster dog went to the vet and got a clean bill of health, then we met with a dog trainer to get some tips/ideas for how best to handle a few different little issues our dogs are having. My parents live about 30 miles from me and they have a 10 year old female bassett, Daisy. Daisy does well with my pointer, but she's very dominant and didn't care for Cooper (our foster dog). And in a few weeks, my parents are going out of town with my brother and so he has asked us to take his 15 year old dog in during those 5 days while they are gone as well - all well and good, except Daisy doesn't care for his dog either. So I figured I better get a plan in place to manage those 4 dogs during that time
Anyway, we worked with the trainer again today - reintroduced Daisy and Cooper and it went pretty well - and that was even at her own house, so I'm hopeful we'll all do ok.
This afternoon, we're celebrating my mother in law's birthday at my sister in law's house.
Sorry for the long post/rant
- hope you all had a really great holiday weekend!
