Happy Thorsday, little friday and thankful thursday! Before I launch into my daily dribble, you might want to check out the post on the girls’ blog. Ever heard of a charitable walk allowing remote participation?
The Knight and I have been discussing a doogy door since before the fur-girls came into our lives. For reasons unclear to me, suddenly the time was right and a Petsafe Freedom Patio Panel was installed yesterday.
Because I am
lame busy and the girls are active and fast learners, there are no action shots of the quick acclimation process. Thanks to basically blogless Susan, I grabbed a fistful of banana chips and found my happiest, proudest voice, and literally in a few minutes, Sissy was coming and going like she’d been using a doggy door all of her life.
Gretchen still is reluctant and will try to slide through after Sissy’s melon head has pushed the flap open, but she got “smacked” in the face by said flat during a poorly timed attempt to follow this morning. Gretchen Greer just isn’t pushy nor is she particularly independent, so I’m not surprised that she isn’t as eager to come and go without human assistance.
Sissy DIVA of course, has no such compulsions and politely let herself out this morning at 5-something AM. Now, for her to learn that she’s not a teenager and I don’t need to know where she’s going, what she’ll be doing, or when she’ll be back…
Thankfuls? I honestly don’t know when I’ve felt more thankful. I have smart, sweet dogs, a handy thoughtful husband (never mind that I heard him tell a friend he got the doggy door because he was tired of getting up and down to let the dogs out while watching TV), and the very best friends a girl could have. It’s double-dipping, since many of the board members and leaders in the League are also my friends, but I can’t thank last year’s Nominating Committee enough for firstly listening to my hours and hours of what I wanted in a board, what traits I think make a good leader, etc., and then for crafting what might be the finest leadership team ever.
Why no, I’m not biased. Okay, well… maybe a little, but women who aren’t prone to biases also agree we have strong board and a promising team of emerging leaders. It makes it a pleasure to put in the long hours and go to all the meetings when I’m surrounded by so much passion and potential.
What drives you to put in extra time and where/what is your passion?
