    She looks like she's both lovable and smart.

    It's been a strange week.  I can't remember when or if I've commented here during the week.  

    Had a stupid meeting about Community Development Block Grants yesterday.  It's a long story, but the condensed version is that the woman who wants me to write the grant hasn't a friggin' clue how this works.  She thinks we can just tell a wonderful tale about all the good we want to do and they will shit us $$.  I tried to tell her months ago that we had to be really specific, but she isn't a detail person.  We do have a good project in mind but we aren't nearly ready to be as exact as the federal gov't. requires.  

    The people who ran the meeting were very good with us and tried to explain it to her, too, but she doesn't hear what doesn't fit into her picture.  

    Gah!  I know it's sounds snobbish, but I don't like working with people who aren't very smart.  Throw incredibly stubborn on top of that and it's so frustrating, I just want to run away and hide.

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to today being relatively normal, whatever that is.  :-)

    •  She is lovable and smart.. and stubborn! (6+ / 0-)

      She's about 5 months old now, and bigger than Freya. Her training is coming along well, but she is definitely stubborn. Yesterday while we were out getting groceries Dad fell, and Morgaine wanted to help him get up.. and ended up tipping the walker over onto his head. He's fine. She's fine. But she's too young to be helping him up, and she wouldn't take no for an answer.

        hopefully before someone ends up with an injury.  It'll be good when her stubborn streak turns into helpful persistence.  :-)
