So here I sit, another sleepless night. It always happens when Nathan isn't home. I guess it is okay, it means I can watch M*A*S*H that night. I love M*A*S*H. I own all 11 seasons on DVD (thanks Becki!) Nathan doesn't quite understand the fascination behind my obsession but what can I say, I LOVE M*A*S*H!
Nathan called tonight. I don't know how he does it. He has been working incredibly long hours this week and to top it all off they don't have the equipment to do the job right. But somehow he stills pulls it off. I am in awe of his ability to improvise. I am firmly convinced that some day the world will know what I do about him. He can do anything he puts his mind to!
I admire him so much! He works so hard to provide for us and our future. He goes to work at a job he loves to do but at a place he hates, just so that we have what we need for our future. And yet, he still has the time and energy to play with our dogs when he gets home. I am amazed at his work ethic. He is a firm believer in doing for one's self and I love him for it.
On an entirely different note, I am so sick of snow! We got another inch or so last night. I have to shovel the driveway tomorrow. It is so cold the snow won't melt. We still have about a foot on our front lawn from the last two storms. I swear Nathan knows when it will snow and purposely goes out of town. It happens every winter. We don't have snow for several weeks and then Nathan leaves and the NEXT DAY it drops 6-8 inches! I know he doesn't do it on purpose but sometimes I have to wonder.
Oh! Before I forget! Madison update. I think that she is finally mellowing out! Last Saturday, after our girls breakfast, Mary (a lady I have become friends with at work) and I were waiting for Somer at my mom's house. My dad was watching my puppies for me since I was down in Utah County most of the day. Anyway, Madison is not known for being nice to anyone she doesn't know so I was being very careful to make sure that Mary didn't get bitten. Anyway, in what I think was record time Madison calmed down and was able to be put down without having to worry about her attacking anyone! Later that night Somer and I were waiting for my sister and her husband to come down so that we could go out to dinner as a family. Anyway, I subjected Madison to more stress and introduced Somer. In even shorter time than with Mary she was calm! It was amazing! I am still not willing to classify her as a nice dog but I think we are making significant progress!
Anyway, not much interesting going on this week with Nathan gone. I guess I had better go get some sleep. Tomorrow is a work day and if I don't get some sleep I will be useless tomorrow!
