DD did much better yesterday at school... I'm finding that she's NOT a self-starter and isn't self-motivated at all (which is frustrating for me, since I'm self-motivated to the extreme). She is thriving on having me micromanage every second of her day, while it's making me a little crazy. I want to be able to say, "Here's what you need to accomplish today -- go do it." and not "For the next fifteen minutes, I want you to work on XX and then next, pick up XX and read for ten minutes." Just goes to prove that our kids aren't mini-me's.
In any case, I got very little done yesterday outside of hovering over DD...
I ran to our local Tractor Supply Company yesterday to grab a couple things. They let us bring the dog inside (they have dog cookies at checkout ... Dakota doesn't understand why we have to shop before we get cookies. I always have to drag her past the clerk because otherwise, she runs in and plops down in a sit, drooling) and currently they carry live chicks and bunnies. Dakota is mostly puzzled by the chicks -- they're being kept in big, metal horse troughs and she peers at them. She LOVES the bunnies though and oddly enough, they seem to love her back. Yesterday, she stuck her nose through the wire cage and two of the bunnies hopped over and touched noses with her. There was no drama, no barking or fussing, just a little doggie / bunny bonding. It was very cute.
I wish DH would let me have chickens. And bunnies. And maybe a goat. *sigh*
I admit to being greatly jealous of Maria Zannini.
You Are a Bicycle
You are an extremely independent person. You have some loner tendencies - and you're totally okay with that.
You are an action-oriented doer. It drives you crazy to just sit around and ruminate.
You are a risk taker. You believe in seizing each moment and just getting out there to do your thing.
You are focused on living in the present. No one knows what's coming tomorrow, so you're going to enjoy today.
LOL... this is pretty much right on -- except I think about the future. A lot.
