A work day today that mostly comprised of a lot of “smalls.” No big, singular tasks that take the entire day – a combination of small little things, here and there.
At 5PM today, Liz and I tried to make a concerted effort to walk away from our desks and actually do something other that work.
“I’m afraid of heights
And you’re afraid of snakes
For once I’ve no fear of falling
As you coil in a defensive state
Won’t you tell me, dear
Do you fear to reciprocate?”
Things were going ok this time, but a bit more dominance issues getting worked out. Mr. Bubbles is still a pretty young bunny, and technically was neutered not too long again.
Given how excitable he was tonight, we’re thinking of delaying the next bonding session for a few days… and see if he doesn’t settle down a bit more.
With Daisy and Mr. Bubbles next to one another, we could tell they were anxious to hang out again. Daisy could sense someone new was around (though her eyesight probably prevented her from seeing). And Mr. Bubbles was definitely showing an interest in Daisy and her pen.
We got some time with Mr. Bubbles, and Liz entered in to mediate the bonding session. Things went very positively, and we felt really good about their encounter – so much so that we decided to make it official.
Today was pretty huge. After all that digging, and clearing out all that space under the deck… to have this unit officially running was really amazing. Truly, a major milestone for us at the house.
We’ve had a few more bonding sessions with Daisy and Carmelita this week. Things seemed to start off positively (the two were really great with one another, at Liz Rench’s house). But the last few sessions took a turn, where Carmelita has gotten a lot more aggressive.
I was in the office today (a rare occassion). Took a meeting in a small conference room, and spotted this note/tag on the radiator.
Things were a little rough downstairs for the last session, so we decided to relocate upstairs to the bedroom. Even more neutral ground. Liz had a lot more guarding to do.
Carmelita and Daisy, sharing a pen for the first time. This was our first (brief) intro for them together, and Liz sat inside to moderate.
Got a call from my cousin Diane that she was in town with her boyfriend, Ryan. We chatted during the week, and coordinated with them to meet up Saturday night. They’ve had quite the whirlwind Chicago vacation, and today was no exception.
Two females bonding is not unheard of, but is typically a tougher match. So there was some hesitation here, bringing Daisy and Carmelita together. But they got along pretty well on their first date, and Carmelita was a strong candidate.
To me: Dig Dug is a Victorian era grandfather. Who got hit with a shrinking ray, and also got taken back in time to his 5 year old body. But he retained all his facial hair. This is all I could think of, every time I looked at him.
The only thing this guy is missing is a tiny, checkered vest. And maybe a monocle.
