and working on the "home alone" video, too. (back on page one)
I'm really hoping that this doesnt come across as me being really defensive.. and if it does, just remember that I totally dont mean it to.. BUT, I said "sick" just so that I wouldn't have to bore you with my many medical ailments . I actually just got over a case of fifths disease - I'd never heard of it until I got it, but as a nurse I'm sure you know more than me on the issue! I was loaded full of pain killers and heavy duty antihistamines last week, so I'd pretty much been unconscious most of the day. Luckily it ran its course pretty quick though - much to my surprise! Annd then to make things worse, while lifting something at home on monday I sparked an old rugby injury that's been plaguing me for the past 4 years (I was tackled illegally during a game and the girl snapped my knee the complete opposite direction that it's supposed to bend.. Now randomly the tendons in my knee start to snap, crackle and pop, which causes my knee to swell up and leaves me unable to do much moving).. It IS starting to go down though, so I'm hoping by tomorrow I can go back to work and get Lego a well needed run at the dog park! (Before anyone gets concerned, I've been to several doctors about my knee.. Nobody knows what's wrong, so I've just learned to deal with it when it does flare up). But you're definitely right.. Even if I can't necessarily do much walking, I could still be working on training! That's something I definitely need to focus more of my attention on for sureThere's only a very small handful of illnesses or conditions which totally prevent a human from being able to walk, or that are NOT helped by walking.
That's something I forgot to retype in my last post! Stupid broswer (switching to chrome right after this lol). What I've noticed is, by leaving her crate filled with her food and all sorts of yummy treats when I leave.. She's too focused on trying to figure out how to get the treats without going inside the crate, to worry about destroying things! Now.. This isn't my solution to the problem, don't worry.. But it's definitely a nice distraction. Unfortunately, I spoke to my boyfriend about the bathroom idea and he made a few good points as to why I can't leave her in the bathroom either... Our roommates would let her out at some point anyways - EVEN IF we told them not to.. And then let her do her own thing. It's frustrating, but unfortunately for the time being we have to try to work around them. I'm trying to think if there's another room we could use for the time being, but I can understand why my boyfriend if reluctant to leave her in our room, with so much to shred. So I've been focusing my efforts (or had been until what's mentioned in the previous paragraph) on trying to tire her out physically and mentally. I'm really hoping that if I can keep it up, I wont have to even consider locking her up, like you saidSo each day when you leave, are you having to shove Lego in ??
