I haven't been able to do projects very much this last month and a half because we got a dog! I didn't expect her to be all-consuming of my time. It's getting better as she's adjusting to our home and learning to chill out and lay down/relax. Between walking her, playing with her in the yard, brushing her, cleaning up after her, worrying about her chewing something, making sure she's not going potty in the house, etc I don't get much accomplished (just remember I have an active toddler at home, too)!
Her name is Heidi and she's a 15-month-old German Shepherd who came to us with no training and used to living outside. She's a sweet gal and really good with the kids, especially our little toddler. She's smart and we're both learning the in's/out's of training.
This was my first attempt to do a project in the garage. If she wasn't right under my feet she was pushing her slobbery squeaky toy on my leg (we're working on her not doing that).
Needless to say... I'm super antsy to get things done but am trying to be patient :)
