Top of the World Ma!

Well, I did it!

I got a promotion and made Processor 1. I'm pretty excited. I got the highest raise (9%) and, of course, bragging rights! Of course, now the pressure is on to know my stuff and maintain the high expectations. Yes, it can and will all be taken away from me if I slip. Which is why I hadn't really wanted it in the first place so I didn't really ask or push for it. Pressure and stress happens to put, well, a lot of pressure and stress on me. So, we'll see what happens, and hopefully I can hang on to it long enough so it wouldn't be too embarrassing if they took it away from me. I know, the cup is always half empty from where I sit. I need to work on that, but I'm a big worrier and I'm always afraid if I get too much of a big head, something horrible will happen, so I'm always waiting for the other shoe to drop. My life has always had some kind of chaotic mess or disaster befall me just when I start getting comfortable, so let's pray I don't get cancer or something!

On a side note, I finally met Kristen! She looks absolutely fabulous! We work just a floor away from each other and she finally came by to say HI ! She is super sweet, and although I never saw her before she lost all the weight, I can say if she loses any more she will disappear! I have a lot of respect and admiration for her determination to lose the poundage!

On another side note, does anyone know how to potty train a dog? I have a minature pincher who we got when he was already 2 yrs old and now he's 3 yrs old and has always been an outside dog from what I understand. He's also a runner, which is how we got him ( he was too much trouble for a friend of mine). He's run away too many times and in order to avoid the drama of upsetting my kids, I've decided to leave him in the house. He stays in one of the bathrooms with a doggy potty mat, and he's going on it (and a little on the floor too!). I thought I was supposed to be teaching him to hold it, but I think I'm just teaching him to go on the mat! I take him out before we leave in the morning and a couple of times when we get home. He doesn't go at all throughout the night, so what am I doing wrong? Every evening when I get home now, the first thing I have to do is mop the bathroom floor! It's getting more than a little frustrating. Any tips are welcome!
