This morning, our aged labrador retriever mix, Jimmy, is stumbling around more than other days, crapped on the floor, tripped over his dog food (which he wouldn’t eat) and the water pan, and wandered aimlessly in the yard, dragging his back end behind him. We have been living with this now for a few months, but we made the decision today to call the vet to make that. final. appointment. This is the third dog we’ve made this call with this particular vet in the past seven years – not an easy thing to do, ever. But he is surely not happy these past few weeks and seems confused as to where he is or why he is. He crossed the line, finally, from cognizant and fairly able to disabled and out of his mind. Still, something in me wonders if this is the right time, and how to know that… it’s just one of those things about having pets and animals that adds to the equation.
So I don’t mean to bum you all out this morning – I’m normally a very positive happy person. But I can’t think of anything to post and Monkey seems very quiet on my shoulder.
Monkey woke me up at 4:00 this morning thinking about ftp protocol, how little she knows about it, and whether we would learn anything today about it. In conversation in class yesterday with the nice woman who looks like Tim Robbins (like, could be his twin), the subject of nomenclature and what a client might want came up. Like Monkey say,
I wanna WordPress site!
…and when you say, wait a second, what do you mean by that, Client Monkey? and Monkey say,
You know, the whole ftp cms thing!
…and then you know, they don’t know what they are talking about. And because of that, neither do you.
So today I was determined to get a little more learning into me so when Clueless Monkey shakes me out of my slumber at 4:00 a.m and goes, “I want! What is? Maybe you should-” I can say, “Shuddup already. I got it under control.”
And according to our lovely itinerary for our day, or in Academia how-you-say… syllabus, I am very excited to announce that this is precisely what we are learning today. ftp protocol. Remote access to our sites. Building a wordpress site into an already existing domain. Creating our sql database. Sound exciting? JUST WAIT!
