6 hours and 37 minutes left to get the deal done.

Oh.  Did you think I was talking about the fiscal cliff?  Hell no.  I am not so stupid as to think things will ever get better for America.  My deal is with God.  Yeah.  I have given Him 'till midnight to fix me.  I can't do another year like this.  I am so very tired.  So yeah.  I....er wait.  You can't make deals with God.  That's not the way it works.  Well then I will just have to work hard at discovering what He has planned for me.  What my purpose is. 

I must admit I did have a pretty good day today.  Until I got sick of the dog biting me.  Sure I am yummy but really?  You have no idea.  I have never hated an animal.  EVER!  Bats, spiders-I held a tarantula-, birds, squirrels-fed them by hand-,mice, cats, wasps-I put the spray on mist for them when I am watering flowers and they appear,   But I just can't deal with Maggie.  I will give her 6-12 months and then-I told Chuck-he will have to decide between me or her.  I walk her.  I give her treats.  I play with her.  When I am getting ready in the morning and she comes up to the sink to watch, I splash water on my face, then hers.  I brush my hair, then hers.  And I can tell you this much.  Kindness does not work with her.  It doesn't work with people either.  Chuck was gone this morning and so I was able to get laundry done.  When I went to switch them to the dryer.....he was down there.  "There's raw meat on the dryer." he says.  Back upstairs I go.  He stopped and got ham and cream cheese so I could make ham roll-ups.  I go to make them, everything is on the counter and he "unintentionally" gets in my way to grab a beer and some snack..  So I went back outside to smoke.  Came in and was able to finish my laundry.  Started on the ham stuff, taking everything back out of the fridge and there he is again.  Feeding the dog.  I just left everything out and went back out to smoke.  By then I guess I'd had enough and those damn tears tried to get the best of me.  I didn't let them.  Finally came in and got the job done.

So Happy New Year to everyone.  I am prepared.  I know that things won't be better in 2013 but I do know that they will be different.. 

Guess we are possibly going to meet up with Chuck's son and family tomorrow.  Funny how his family can never make decisions.  We saw them Saturday.  Exchanged gift cards and money.  (stupid).  We also saw a movie.  Parental Guidance.  Was really good.  Billy Crystal and Bette Midler.  Can't go wrong there. 

Haven't seen or heard from my daughter except once in the last week or more.  Oh well.  I am sure I will hear from her when Jeremy goes back to work and the next dilemma comes up.  At least I have my son and his family.

I know you've gone through a lot of tough, trying times.

You've got some ironic humour going for you and what the heck, that's good, in an ironic sort of way.

Maybe things will be different in 2013 in a better sort of way. Try to believe and do your best to make it so. It's your life, my friend.

A hopeful 2013 to you.

In kindness, Gary

Young labs are a handful in every way, but they are ambitious and intelligent. Surf the net or go to the library, and learn to train her. If YOU are consistent, she can learn anything, and she will adore and respect you. Please don't let her become collateral damage.

My name WAS Female, I shit you not! said...

What can I say......I'm no good to anyone either. We both have too many issues that we can't deal with. It's just easier ...to hold Pity Parties every once in awhile, instead of "cleaning house."
One day...we will see our way off this roller-coaster ride. YES,WE WILL sister!

I am not an animal person. The husband already knows that if he got a dog I'd have to move out! Glad you did have a good day and I hope that you DO have a better year in 2013.

This is a LAB? And he bites?

Just a question: has he been abused. Has your husband been treating her/him well?

Labs aren't, by nature, biters. IF the bites are getting more frequent instead of lessening, have you thought of placing one of those WIDE rubber bands around his/her muzzle? Not TIGHT. I don't mean to hurt the lab in any way, but it would require pressure for him to open his mouth, until he gets out of the habit of latching onto you.

I don't think you're actually trying to make a deal with God when asking for things. I only defend this because every time we go to the casino, I beg God (YES, that's right) to please let me win... and if I win God, I'll stop for a little bit. Sometimes I win ;) Life is like that... ya' gotta gamble a little to win, and if you lose, you just keep gambling 'til you win! I mean really, what do we truly have to lose anyway?

Labs are the very best. Seriously, you need to "train" her and you will love her... they are a magical breed. I'm hoping you much love and luck in getting her to be YOUR dog. Once she is, you will know what I"m talking about. Go do some reading on the issue.. and what they suggest.. seriously.. Lab rock socks..
