Finding my footing

Every semester brings with it new challenges. I still work on goals from the previous semester, although "grow up" still hasn't gotten any closer to being achieved (maturity in humor sinks to new lows). I'm not sure why this semester has felt so awkward and like I'm fighting everything to stay upright, but it has.

Some might say that surgery has some influence on that, and I'd say they're probably right. Monday, the long day, was positively brutal! The rest of the week has been recovering from that. But the week has had its hiden joys, like joking with professors, learning new things, discussing disability issues and making snarky remarks about almost everything. It's just more challenging than I expected.

I suppose the cold has an influence on that. Speaking of cold, does anyone remember what company sells doggy boots that are recommended for working with guides? 'Cause I sure don't, and Julio doesn't like the cold snow on his paws. Can't say I blame him there.

I've got a tentative class schedule for
figured out. I forgot to put breathing on that schedule.

That's all the news from here. More interesting post later.

Hurray college stress. I feel you on that one, chickie. And I'm not grown up either; so far from it.

Laser has dog boots from Ruff Wear


I know some other handlers use something called a Mutcluck; they're socks for the dog. Ruff Wear makes actual booties, though, which dry out better. They're a lil pricey, bvut worth it, I think.

My husband and I were in Alaska on vacation. We visited the Mile Zero starting point of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. The main route of the Iditarod trail extends 1,151 miles (1,852 km) from Seward in the south to Nome in the northwest. Mushers and teams of dogs cover the race in eight to fifteen days.
Are you with me, Julio?
On the ground, I found something. It was a sled dog bootie! I found out that the dogs have practice paw-wear. The one I have is heavy black fabric. (They adjust the fit with bands of velcro. The one I have is a vivid orange fastener.) Frequently teams race through blizzards causing whiteout conditions, and sub-zero weather and gale-force winds which can cause the wind chill to reach -100 °F (-75 °C).
Are you still with me, Julio?
