I've spent two days hearing about furlough this and furlough that. Did you know that there is a difference between a government furlough and an administrative furlough? Yeah...the end result is the same either way. Enough already.
On the good side we held our all staff meeting yesterday and it went very well. No negative tweets were discovered to be coming from the meeting so that's my sign of a good meeting. Plus I bribed everyone with cookies and that seemed to help.
I've blogged every day this week. Trying to make up for the missed days earlier this month.
It is supposed to rain tomorrow. I was hoping to go to the Dog Day Afternoon at the park. Not that I would take Abby but I enjoy looking at all the other dogs having fun.
Excitement in our little cul-de-sac the other night...animal control was called out. I believe I mentioned that last week there were two chickens wandering around two houses away. Seems as if they lived at that house. Our next door neighbor called animal control because there was a dead chicken in their backyard. You are allowed to have chickens in our town if they are cooped and the wings clipped. The neighbors hadn't clipped the wings so they flew the coop. And the next door neighbor's dog wasn't too happy about the visit. So one less chicken.
Dan thinks that the chickens may be why Abby has wanted to stay outside at night. If they have been flying around she is trying to protect the backyard. I guess from the chicken invasion.
We have a new fire station that is located on the main street our neighborhood is on. I thought I would hear the sirens but I don't because we are far enough back. But I know when they do leave the station because all the dogs start howling. Except ours who has never howled in her life.
I finally passed the level in Candy Crush that I had been stuck on for a month. Now I'm not quite sure how to pass 277 but I think I'm working out the system. But I really hate these stupid bombs. If not for them I would be doing so much better.
