Thursday Things

None, but people of strong passion are capable of rising to greatness. - Comte de Mirabeau

Sorry for the break yesterday, but I couldn't face doing much of anything. I've been a bit stressed for many reasons, some of which I won't talk about here. It's caused me to not sleep well, again, and after not sleeping well for a while, I get odd symptoms: dizzy, shakes, nausea, headache. Yesterday was one of those days.

I was in bed at 8:00 last night, but still only slept in fits. Up at 4:00 because DD has her shadow day today (NO SNOW, thankfully ... they were saying it was going to snow and I had visions of another reschedule) and I have stuff that needs doing before we leave.

We sort of had agility last night, though I left Dakota at home again. She's feeling better -- she never got all that sick -- but the vet won't vaccinate her until she's two weeks past her last symptoms (which would be Monday next). So, she'll miss beginning class tonight as well. Last night, DD ran another dog that was being boarded there instead. It's been convenient that the past two weeks that our dog has been out, there have been other dogs for her to run.

I suspect DD will eventually get into a profession that deals with animals. She probably knows more about training dogs than most adults at this point, since our agility instructor is also a trainer and has really taken DD under her wing. If we still live here in another couple years when DD is looking for a job, I'd be willing to bet she goes to work there. She talks about being a dog trainer or a vet tech for a living. She doesn't want to be a vet -- "I don't want to do surgery" -- but that may change. Who knows?

In other news, my tomato plant that had blossoms now has one itty bitty tomato on it. For pollinating, I just brushed the flowers over one another and I guess it worked, at least in one case. I imagine that there are female and male blossoms on a tomato plant, just like there are on squash plants, so I assume not all flowers will make fruit anyway. The plants are crazy with little flower buds, though, so I may have a bumper crop nice and early this year!

DH mentioned building me a greenhouse, too ... we'll see if that pans out. Would be nice to extend the growing season out here a bit.

I'm itching to put in my garden. Sadly, it's still buried in snow...


Your Soulmate is Reserved

Substance matters to you, and you're not really drawn to flashy or overly outgoing people.

You're looking for a partner who will last a lifetime, and your soulmate is equally serious about love.

You aren't a romantic, but you don't mind a partner who is. In fact, you sort of prefer it.

You've got your feet firmly planted on the ground, and you would like someone to get you up in the clouds occasionally!

Sounds good ... maybe I should mention that "you'd like a romantic partner" thing to my DH? He could use a nudge. *G*

I hope today is a better day for you.

Good luck to DD on her shadowing.

Your Soulmate is Protective

You can be a shy and quiet person, and sometimes doing things out in the world stresses you out.

You need someone who will speak up for you and take care of you when times are tough.

You don't mind being with a partner who likes to be in control, as long as your sweetie isn't controlling.

Above all, your soulmate is confident and competent. You could never be attracted to someone who was immature!

How scary is this that it is so accurate.

Have a great Thursday.

Sorry to hear you've not been sleeping. Maybe try melatonin?

Ref: Dakota
Is her cough gone?

Ref: DD
I used to be a vet tech, but that was back in the Stone Age. :) Nowadays they require a minimum two-year degree. The only thing I'd warn is that she might have to be responsible for holding the dog or cat during euthanasia. I hated that part.

Sorry to hear you aren't sleeping well. I get the same symptoms when I don't sleep well for a while, too. I hope DD's shadow day goes well. And I'm sure she'll find something to do in her adult life that combines all her interests, she's a fabulous artist.

My quiz results were the same as Dru's. And yes, that's me to a tee. *g*

I hope you're having a good day!
