Doing Pretty Good Considering

It has been a truly exhausting week. I continue to do good after my third Orencia infusion. I have been training for a new job at work and two of my four days at work this week, I was on my feet all day. That's twelve hours of standing, walking and climbing stairs for training on the press. If I thought it would have helped, I would have cried Thursday night after getting off of work. I don't think my feet have ever hurt that bad. After my shift I made it to the front door which is an accomplishment, the plant has 15 acres under it's roof and the pressroom is the next to the last building inside the plant. I walked outside and saw how far my truck was parked out in the parking lot and literally did not know if I could make it out to my truck. The good news is that I am learning the job at an above average pace, according to the trainer.

I have a 200 mile ride planned with Randall Tuesday morning. We have had this ride planned and three weeks ago were going to ride it but woke to a large storm moving into the area. This is the ride that Randall told me, "This would be a prime place for Sasquatch to live". We will have to watch our gas, it will be borderline on milage between gas stations. Randall also said "I thought we had been in the middle of nowhere before - not even close." This ride may make a good, next blog post.

We have a new dog that we rescued. She has been with us for a couple of weeks now and Misty (our inside dog) is adjusting to her now. Her name is Maggie and she is an Australian Terrier that we believe is about four years old. How anyone could dump or abandon a pet is beyond me, she has obviously been around people before. She is adapting to her new home very well. She is very protective of her new bed we bought for her and growls if Misty gets too close to her bed. Misty can eat her food, they share snacks, just don't get near her bed. LOL

Maggie is adorable...the look in her eyes says a lot. Our second of three dogs is a rescue dog, she was the runt of a litter of 5 pups. Luckily they all respect each other when it comes to food, beds, etc.

Thanks everyone, Maggie is a cutie, but she has her moments. She would still rather pee inside than outside. lol She knows better and is getting better at letting us know she needs out now.
