I'M SICK, but will be back SOON!
I've felt a cold coming on for a while.
I've been achy and have had a stomach ache for a few days
but last night I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't even swallow.
I got up this morning and got ready for work in a daze.
I HAD to go in because it's the day after the holiday and it's at full capacity
and so many pets were going home.
It's pure madness after any holiday and
so many had special feeding instructions and several were on medication and one on insulin...
So I drove to work, through the pouring rain and tried to will myself well.
It didn't work.
I got everyone outside to potty, brought them back in and feed and medicated them and then their owners started coming to pick up their pets.
I was so dizzy and I was sweating and....
I turned to the head tech and the office manager and said
"I'm going home. We have to figure this out."
I never do that. I usually tough it out...at least until everything is done and cleaned
but I didn't.
I drove home.
I came inside and let all my dogs loose in the house and went to bed.
I slept the entire day and then I got up and fed my own pets and I took some more cold medicine.
I laid in my big chair as my dogs played and now I've finally come to the computer.
I can't really think...
I'm going back to bed now.
Be back soon.
