More good things . . .

Seems like my life is full of good things lately, and I'm not complaining :) You know, sometimes it feels like everything is going wrong, but right now it just feels like it's all going right.

Before Christmas I was approached by my old neighbour about a possible new job. I sent my resume along, and the department manager actually called me and talked to me (this is a bigger deal than it sounds like on paper). Anyhow, I met with a few people in January about it, and then things kind of fizzled for a while. Since I didn't really hear much, I thought maybe they'd found another candidate for the job. Out of curiosity, I emailed the fellow who would be the boss yesterday, to see if they'd filled the position. A lady from Human Resources called me to tell me that I was the successful applicant. I was so sure that I wasn't getting the job that I was quite surprised! And VERY pleased :) It's a promotion of sorts . . . more than just a lateral move, anyhow. And it's an awesome opportunity for me (within the same company). So I can't wait to learn some of the details (transfer date, etc).

I took Grace outside to practise being a show dog tonight. It's finally warming up enough to play outside, instead of trying to work in the house. She was pretty wound up initially, but man, when she got the hang of it she did really well. She can MOVE! It gave me little goosebumps, so now I'm looking forward to her first show. Even if she goofs around in the ring (which is to be expected, since she's a puppy), once she finds her rhythm, I think she's going to be a lot of fun to show.

Farley is doing well. He's started on Missing Link Plus, which is a food supplement with glucosamine in it, and he seems to be doing well. He's not as sore these days, and not taking as much pain medication. So that makes me really happy. I sure do love my cranky old man!
