I guess if I post when good things that happen for my grandson,
I should also post the not-so-good, even if this is the wrong thread.

Here is my previous post about him carrying a heavy work and study schedule in November.

Well, yesterday the Supervisor at the hatchery told him they were letting him go.
Apparently he was not getting on with some of the permanent employees,
and there was an incident of damage to some fish-feed bags with the forklift,
which he denies knowing about.

In any case, he seems to be handling his emotions (he's pissed) better than I expected.
I'm at least happy about that...but we'll have to see how things go.

Dealing with awful co-workers can be a difficult skill to master. Make sure this is a learning opportunity not just something to bitch about. I'm sorry about his finger.

New student in my class was supposed to be almost non-verbal, no interest in people etc... After one week and one day I watch him hook another kid under the arm and haul him up onto the playground bridge. He's running catching kids hugging, fooling around with me at table and using single words and the occasional short phrase. There is something about getting outside and running around with friends that just clicks for some kids. This kid has found joy.

Good stuff Griff !!!

DanaC 02-07-2012 05:52 PM

Awesome. That must make it all worthwhile.

I've already posted this in the Post Your Pet thread but....

ohmigod I am so excited. It's looking very, very likely that I'll have him by the 20th...three days before my Birthday :)

Have stepped away from writing my conference paper. I was hoping to get it finished ahead of Carrot's arrival, but that was when I thought it was end of Feb early March. I've got it halfway there so I know what i'm doing with it.

Am instead sorting out house. have sorted/cleared a bunch of stuff from living room. Gonna do kitchen, pantry and landing cupboard tomorrow, then spend Thursday cleaning. Because Friday a man is coming to measure up for new carpets, and as blase as I generally am about the state of my house, it's pretty bad even by my standards.

Have to get new carpets, because the alternative is cleaning the existing carpet and frankly, I don't think it would survive. Even if it did, the underlay is fucked, and there's frayed edges and exposed grip strips where Pil dug the thing up eveyr night. Too loose and baggy as well.

So...since I'm dong carpets I might as well throw some paint up. So that's this weekend's task.

Need to wash curtains (hang down quite low to the floor and used to drape over Pil's back when he lay under the window = filthy at the bottom they are!) and sofa cover as well. I have no idea what Pilau might have been carrying. A vaccinated dog can still carry parvo. And I have no idea really what finally got him. He was too old and too ill to go for a bunch of tests. For all I know it could have been a viral infection at the end. Now I cleaned up the vomit and the explosive dire rears as they occurred, and disinfected chunks of the house as needed, but that isn't necessarily enough.

So...busy week. Busy couple of weeks really. Soon as I have the house stuff dealt with I need to drop onto uni work and get as much of that done as possible.

Really looking forward to seeing him. Look at that little face!

I could eat his face off, he's so cute! :)

I'm happy for you, and this lucky pup. *waves at Carrot*

DanaC 02-07-2012 06:23 PM

I fully intend to eat his face off :P

Beardies are ridiculously cute as pups. All puppies are cute. I've yet to see one that isn't, but beardies take it to a whole other level.

Lamplighter 02-07-2012 06:25 PM

Maybe go slow on the new carpets until house-training is secure ?

infinite monkey 02-07-2012 06:26 PM

Ha! Yes, I can give that face the title of Best Face-eatin' Face of ALL TIME.

I'm grinning here. I can't wait to see pics as he grows up. :)
