and I'm already looking forward to the end of the work day.  I went to bed last night with both of my hips hurting, and my feet.  I thought our puppy was going to knock me down the basement stairs in her excitement to see me when I got home.  I keep telling hubby we need to put a gate or door across those stairs before I end up at the bottom.  Sleeping my 8 hours didn't help much.  I woke up limping around while I take care of the critters and got my coffee going.  It's still hurting.  I'm just planning to make it through the work day at this point and then relax for my weekend as much as possible.
My plan of action to go around like the little engine that could and just keep repeating to myself "I think I can, I think I can" *lol*

I'm sorry you are hurting.  I had a dog that would jump at me but I was told to bend my knee so the dog would hit the knee.  That doesn't feel good to them and that did stop the jumping!  Maybe your hubby could use that technique so you wouldn't be hit.

Thanks to both of you.  I did make it through my day, which is why I'm posting this so late.  The day turned out to be fairly quiet which suited me just fine.
