19. October, 2004 - back to it

Today I try to get back into the normal swing of things. I’ve got a mix of links again, and am awake too early because I woke up too early, not because I had to take a walk in the frost in the yard at 5am. Thanks to those who emailed or called with condolences over having to take Don back. Not only was it emotionally expensive, it was a pretty steep financial price, too. The breeder does not give refunds on returned dogs, and beyond the nearly $500 I spent on Don, I spent an additional $300 on various other bits for him. I got a hundred bucks back from the breeder for returning the kennel.

I still need to do a thorough cleaning to get the last of the doggy-smell out of the house, too. I seem to have cleaned up enough that my dog allergy isn’t bothering me, but there’s a bit of an odor remaining, probably from one of his accidents. Maybe we’ll get a little Indian Summer so I can open the windows and clear some of the odor out (though I probably need to do more cleaning before that’ll be useful). Being able to open the windows some afternoon will also be helpful if I get organized enough that I can start painting in here.

Anyway, it’s time to get back to work in a serious way. And I actually have been productive enough lately, that I’ve cleared the decks somewhat. If you or someone you know is looking for Mac Programming or Web help, I’d appreciate it if you pointed them our way.
