Well, this is the second writing of today’s entry – WordPress seems to have swallowed up my previous work. It has been a little frustrating tonight getting connected and starting to blog. But this blog isn’t about frustrations, it is about finding the positive. So, the last 24 hours have been a lot fun (and work too). Today I got to know a colleague a little better. She raises dogs and we compared notes on what to do to stop a dog’s destructive behavior. She says they are bored and have lots of energy so you have to tire them out both mentally and physically. Give them a job to do and distract them when they start to do things which you don’t want them to do.

Not only does this apply to children as well as dogs, I suspect it would work with some of my colleagues. I’m not telling which ones. Although if they are reading this they might wonder what I am really thinking if I ask them if they want to go for a walk!

I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how much I’ve already picked up, or maybe already knew. No surprises today and I actually knew at least 2 of the 3 things asked of me today. I am lucky I can email off to a friend to tell me what I don’t know – after all, she did the job before me. All in all a good day!

I’m grateful this time around seems to be working!

I’m grateful for new friends I’m making – this is going to be a great year!

And I’m grateful I’ve made it half way through the week. I am eager to finish up and go home to my dear hubby. Hopefully there will be a rose on the table instead of rocks!
