|My sous chefs. This is why we eat so many PB&Js.|
Gretl's training has been going really well, and we are now to the point where she shouldn't embarrass herself at the class when we go for obedience training and then go through the process for certification as a therapy dog. Once the snow is gone, we will also be beginning cart training, so we can have her pull a wagon. If all goes well, she will be pulling a wagon by the time Oktoberfest rolls around, so we won't have to push a stroller or carry our goodies to the parade route. Here's to hoping that she continues to learn commands quickly.
Charlie has finished the first half of his first term at school. We're starting to get into a good routine for him to get his homework done and for me to get all of my errands done with our only using one car. (Yes, there are three vehicles parked in our driveway. We are trying to see if we can go with just one plus the Comet, so we can simplify our lives.)
I've gotten into enough of a routine that the basic cleaning can get done while still having time for me to get back to reading/duscussing classic literature and practicing music. It has meant cutting down on the time that I spend (ok waste) on Facebook and watching TV shows. I'm enjoying it enough that I'm hoping to be able to maintain the current trend.
