Any ideas, thoughts?

I am SO excited! It's snowing here this afternoon and I left the office early and spent some time outside with my doggies. Here's a little clip of the fun we had; I'll write more about it later but I am headed back out to play. For all you northerners we don't get snow like this here in Eastern, North Carolina!

So on my Monday Ready I vow this week will not be as stressful as last week. Especially since most of my stress last week was my own doing; worrying about my husbands interview & the results.
Isn't it crazy the amount of stress we introduce in our own lives because we fret and worry about things? I don't typically make New year's resolutions because I never keep them and also because I am always trying to grow as a person. The people and situations around me are always teaching me, shaping me, and of course showing me my mistakes. Last week showed me yet again that I need to learn to not stress over the little things; MUCH easier said than done.
So this week, my focus will be "don't stress over the things which are beyond my control." I'm gonna try. I'll let you know next week how I think I did; send me those positive vibes cause this one is gonna be hard!

For example, (you knew there was an example coming, didn't you?) my husband had his second interview LAST Friday & was told; "we'll advise all the candidates mid-week of our decision." Has he heard anything? No, nada, nothing, zip! Does this mean he didn't get the job? Possibly; but that is not the point. Don't set the level of expectation and not follow through. It really bothers me when people do this.
This is a big deal to me in this case because my husband is not one to ask questions in an interview. So this time he asks and they do not follow through with that they say they're going to do. Now I know there could be a million reasons as to why they haven't responded yet; such as they haven't decided, he's not the one, etc. But it's still rude & it still bugs me!!!

Hmm... The reason I ask is because last night I had such a fitful night of sleeping and I distinctly remember dreaming about blogging. It was so realistic that I could have been blogging in my sleep. But thankfully when I awoke this morning and logged on there was not some unusual (any more than normal) ramblings.
I think I had so much going on in my mind last night before falling asleep that I just couldn't turn my brain off. The lesson to this is, meditate and clear my mind before falling asleep; of course easier said than done most nights.

Here's a close up, you can really see the staples in this one!
My vet says he'll be okay and in about 10 days the staples can come out. I hope it doesn't leave too bad of a scar. :(

He never even whined after the initial attack and was very well behaved at the vet. Can you believe it? They, of course; loved him! My poor, poor puppy. He was so pitiful when he got home, all he did was curl up and go straight to sleep with me. I'll have to attach some pics later, but they're scary! (at least to me)
