Our First Trial and Various Other Stuff!

This weekend is our first agility trial. I am excited, but very nervous! DH will be there taking LOTS of pictures, so I should have something to post on Sunday or Monday. I think we're ready. I am a little worried Reilly might be a bit stressed by Sunday, but hopefully he'll shake it off.

And finally - ( drumroll please) we are getting the interior of the house painted! It's been driving me CRAZY for YEARS and we are finally biting the bullet, forking out the dough and getting most of it painted.

We haven't been able to paint it ourselves because the foyer and the family room are 2 stories high and neither DH nor I are getting on ladders or scaffolding to paint it. So they come on Friday and should be done sometime Saturday - hence the stressing of the dog.

He's at daycare today because the house is being cleaned and will have to go on Friday again, when the painters are at the house. Then Saturday should be interesting as I am sure they will get there before we leave for agility. If all goes well :), they will be gone by 1pm and Reilly and I will come back to a newly painted house in a disasterous mess :).

DH and I are going to start taking things off the bookcases tonight and moving some of the more fragile stuff, which tends to stress out the dog. He's not big into change, if you haven't already guessed that.

Oh and we had a wonderful houseguest this weekend. Our friend Tracy who we knew in HS and then again in College was in Atlanta this weekend. We had reconnected through Facebook and it's been so good to see her again. But she fears she will never be invited to stay with us again! In the process of putting her stuff in her car on Monday, she locked herself out of our house without her Blackberry! Poor Tracy tried everything she could think of to get in the house. She went to the neighbor's on either side and the one who could help her wasn't home, and the one who couldn't help her was! She tried windows and everything else, and finally had to resort to breaking the window in our back door.

Which is not a big deal..... at all really, we aren't mad. It's just that since nothing in our house is the right size, we had to order the insert for the window and it will be a week or so till it gets here. We have it all taped up, but everytime you open or close the door, glass rains down on the patio.

And of course she's always welcome! :) We'll just have to hide a key next time.


  1. Good luck with the trial! Can't wait to hear all about it. And I'm so jealous that you guys are getting to paint the interior. My living room needs it desperately! Can't wait to see pics!

  2. Good luck with the trial. I can't wait to read more about it.
