Took the little ones to school, and then bugged my friend at the school – told her we should go to the river and take a walk. It was a beautiful morning. she agreed and we went. 🙂 Yay.
Lovely walk, lovely crisp-ish gentle fall air.
Came home and walked the dog. That frazzled me horribly. She is SOOOO badly behaved sometimes. When she sees other people walking along the street she tries to jump at them, and when I don’t allow that (of course) she jumps at ME. She is 55lbs but rather tall and lanky and I swear she tries to karate chop/drop kick me.
The whole walk was a struggle.
Made it back and put her in her crate so i could have a time out. Its an xtra large create, all wire, so not horribly confining but perfect to keep her safe from everything she gets into for night time, and gives me a break during the day from time to time.
Rest of the day still too short tempered, but I’m pms’ing. And have a broken tooth that is causing hideous pain to the side of my face and ear.
In the DBT diary card thingy, I give myself a 4/5 4 because I used my skills but they only distracted me most of the time, but off and on during the day they were used successfully as well.
