I went home sick from work Tuesday and Thursday
and I had off Wednesday so that helped.
But I had to work yesterday because I had someone coming in for a job interview.
I lead her around and showed her everything that we do in my boarding area.
I told her about the hours we would need her
and she stood and watched me and the head vet tech try to get an angry cat into a kennel.
This is an actual photo of the cat:
Anyway, I also happen to be boarding a Rabies Watch, a quarantined dog that has to stay the mandatory 10 days before it can be released by a Veterinarian.
Actually most of our quarantines tend to be nice friendly dogs and the bites were not really their faults.
I mean it was a stranger coming into the yard type of thing or a little kid being rough or not playing nice...
But once in a while we do get some that we have to be very cautious with.
I was still coughing and it was raining hard outside and I just didn't have the energy to sugar coat the job.
I mean really, they need to know that it's not just playing with puppies.
So.. she said she had to discuss the hours with her husband but I know that
I will never see her again. I could read it in her face
and she had no enthusiasm for the job .
I do have another interview scheduled for Monday
and she sounded excited, so I'm crossing my fingers!
I do have a lot to share, lots of stuff about positive thinking/believing
and how it's already begun to work and people and things coming into my life,
but... I'll save it for later.
I need to get to bed.
I had to work today and then I tried to move some bags of cement out of my vehicle with a dolly and when it dropped on the dolly,
the top metal bar slammed forward and hit me hard in the side of the head.
I was rubbing the pain away and trying not to cry.
So I got it together and pulled another bag out of the back of the van, making sure to turn my head this time
and the dang thing hit me so hard in the nose that I thought it was broken at first.
I have a small nose and it was on the top of it, on that bone about halfway down.
I went inside and iced it and left the other two bags in the van where they will stay.
Obviously I'm an idiot, but I hope my neighbors weren't looking out their living room window that runs next to my driveway
or they might have had a good laugh.
So I've done some laundry and tried to catch up on a couple of people's blogs but...
I've got to get to bed because I have a busy day tomorrow.
I just want to thank everyone VERY MUCH for all the well wishes.
It really meant A LOT to me.
I mean that!
My sister did call today to see if I was feeling better yet
and I told her that she could cancel the funeral
to which she she replied "Funeral? All I had done was rent a backhoe".
I know that she's kidding but still, it was so nice to have you all check in on me and... "everything".
I'll leave you with this story.
This is Addy,
a little dog that I've taken care of for YEARS. Her mom dropped her off for boarding yesterday and said this is the last time she will be staying with me.
Her family is moving to South Africa. Her owner said Addy's airfare will cost more than both her and her husbands and their child's combined.
So you know what they are doing? They are buying her a ticket!
Because THAT'S WHAT YOU DO when you move!
You take all your family members with you! Yep, FINALLY a happy ending story.
(Although I will miss her very much.)
Again thanks! I hope to post again soon with paintings and good stuff.
