Pico: It looks like Pico is beginning to adjust to the concept of being left home alone in a fenced in yard! The first time we left him in the shed which led to the fenced in yard, he created utter havoc and seemed very unhappy. The next day we crated him indoors the whole day, while we were at work. But on the third day, Nanu and I couldn’t bear the thought of crating him again. So we left him in the fenced in yard and hoped he would begin to like it.
It looks like it worked, since he seemed happy when we came home to check on him at lunchtime. So after that, we’ve been leaving him out (in the fenced in yard) the past few days, when we go to work and it looks like he’s getting used to it.
No more messes. No more indignant and angry Beagle howls. No more guilt about crating a puppy the whole day. Yeehaw! This is such a relief.
Visa: I feel as grim about my visa as "Clem Urbush" my scary Ebay handmade mask.
In other news, (ahem…!) I’m exploring options with regards to my H1B visa. I don’t know at this point if I will be forced to find another job, simply because it’s my employer’s corporate policy not to sponsor international visas.
It's really sad, because I have finally found a job I truly enjoy, after a long time. It’s a friendly, relaxed and nice place to work, my boss loves me and I think she’s totally awesome, it’s close to home and it happens to be the biggest newspaper in Southern Illinois. Also I have a cool designation, Editor of the Southern Health Magazine & Special Projects Writer and I get to plan the magazine content, write and edit stories and handle a whole bunch of stringers.
But it all comes back again to the whole visa issue. Quite sucky if you ask me. Wish someone could wave a magic wand and make it all work out.
Weather: Today was an unbelievable 60 degrees Fahrenheit! Beautiful, beautiful weather. Oh I wish it could be like this always.
Is spring finally here?
