Doggy Countdown – One week!

In one week I will hopefully be posting from school! I only say hopefully since I’m not hooked nto their network yet.

Today I took it really easy. The fatigue has lifted for the most part, so I didn’t want to risk another setback. I had a computer issue to take care of this morning. A snafu with iTunes yesterday made me think I had lost my entire library, but it’s all worked out now, and fine. I would have been fine because I have pretty much everything on the iPod, but I really wanted to get Duma Key on there and I didn’t want to do anything before it all got straightened out.

So I spent a good chunk of the morning importing eighteen disks. That book is almost 2 gigs, geez. Probably because they are audio cds. I know the books I download aren’t nearly that size.

So that’s done and I finally got that post done about the videos that I’ve been wanting to get done.

Other than that, I didn’t do much. Oh I started listening to the clicker training lecture and it makes so much more sense now lol. Sounds like a lot of fun.

I’ve read some puppy raiser blogs about using the word “nice” and that scares me. I say “nice” a lot. I wouldn’t want Insert to expect a reward when I say “nice” on the phone.

I just got off the phone with Carol and once again we got into a time warp. Before I knew it it was 5pm haha! So B will be home soon and I hadn’t done my doggy countdown yet. So now I have, phew!

Countdown is really, really on! This is my last Monday in Arizona!!!

7 days!!!

  1. Yay! I am so excited for you, Ro! I can not wait to be reading about your adventures at school, and I can’t wait to meet ‘Insert’. Best of luck in San Rafael!

  2. We’re counting with you Ro girl! I think you have us as excited as you are. Okay, well maybe not AS excited, but you know what I mean. I feel like I’m waiting for Christmas all over again. 🙂

    Do you have a PDA? A personal assistant recorder? Just in case you miss the first few days there on the computer you can talk into the recorder, then dictate it to your blog for us when you get the chance????
    Or is that a stupid idea?

    Any way…you’re all set! The countdown begins.

    Good luck to ya girlfriend!
    Prayers and sentiments go out to you from Me and Stormcrow!



  3. Happy 1 week!

  4. Yuppers, time is scootin’. I’m glad you’re feeling better.

    Hmmm. I wonder if next time you rip an audio book, could you rip at a smaller bit rate to conserve space? I usually rip books at somewhere around 96 kbps. Just because it’s just talking and there’s no musical stuff to sound all gross.

    I wouldn’t worry about the “nice” thing. The dog knows it’s all about context. I think the dog knows that if s/he hears “nice” after s/he does something you want, then s/he expects a reward. But “nice” is a pretty common word. This reminds me of the time I was on 411 once and they said “What kind of listing, business, government or residential” and I said “business,” and I was afraid Trix would think I was telling her to do her business. But she didn’t move an inch.

    Hehehehe. It won’t be long now!

    Ah, this is why I need friends. My iPod has a voice recorder on it, great idea JayNoi!

    And Carin, never thought about that. I think I can do that, yep. Good to know.

    Thanks for getting excited with me everyone! *grin*

  6. How exciting! Thanks for the reminder re: clicker training. I love it and find it so effective.
