Sit! Stay! Come! Heel!

I don't know. I'm looking at dog training manuals, so I can work with my friends' dogs while they're out of town. Their first dog learned some bad habits from his newer playmate, and the newer playmate is just plain crazy. To be totally fair, though, she was kept in a kennel for most of her first year of life, because her owner was working and her owner's mother didn't want to be bothered.

Which just makes me want to scream from the rooftops: Don't get a pet unless you're willing to care for it!

Ugh. It makes me so mad.

But I did start wanting a dog, so hopefully several housesitting jobs will cure me of that. I do not have enough energy to keep up with a dog right now, and since I'm moving to an apartment that's already at its max pets level, then a dog is not happening. Of course, I'm rooming with someone with a dog, so there's that.

In other news, I really need to come up with something to bring to work for dinners. The pasta salad I made was okay, but I think it started to go bad at the end there. Same goes with the spinach salad I made. I need to boil up some pasta to bring with me, since some nice person left a couple of jars of pasta sauce in the break room for free. So I've got those, and some pasta, and maybe some chicken I can grill up for myself (see if that Foreman Grill is still working!).

Well, I needed to go shopping tonight for some necessities anyway, I'll just see if there's any chicken on sale. If not I'll stick with pasta and maybe add some veggies. But I should make a plan for next week, especially because I'm going to be house sitting.

Yeah, me and Isaac almost drove 2 hours into the mountains to get a dog. Then we came to our senses.

Shiba Inu's are pretty cute though.

Maybe I missed an earlier post, but when did you decide to move out? And when is that happening?

I first mentioned it sometime in January, I think, and then had to pause because I wasn't sure I was going to get full time hours back. My friend from work got an apartment with an extra room and with my full-time hours again at the library I can afford it.

I'm hoping to move March 11 (Sunday, which is the only day I don't work and that would be best for moving). So that's going to be fun.

I have a huge suggestion for dinner that sounds kind of odd, but it really works: soup. An empty salsa jar is the PERFECT size for a cup of soup, and you can zap it with a paper towel on top and it is easy to eat out of, too!

Also, you can cook up as much soup as you want, and even store it in the freezer if you want a couple different kinds. I usually have a huge pot of soup in the fridge for Corey and I to eat and we have that for available food for a bit more than a week. BUT... We really like soup. I have a bunch of good recipes.
