That's so awesome! <3
My dogs both let me brush their teeth...with an electric toothbrush
I think I finally effing know what I want to do with my life. I may just have a purpose after all.
After a couple years of a pay freeze we are finally getting raises!!!!
May it actually take me to where I need to be so I shut up!!!!!
We don't like how the notice was worded but the boses said sure thing. Something g along the lines of "as long ad the budget passes".
Yay for raises!!
I recently backed off some stress and negativity and I've started feeling better.
Now to the venting thread re: what masters program fits my goals best?
Some people just get it. I was at the gym with Logan, just finished in the shower. Someone came in while I was packing up my stuff to go, and asked about Logan. I'm VERY open about what he's for, so when she asked I told her he's for autism. She was THRILLED to hear that, and was super friendly. She said her brother is also high-functioning autistic. No stupid comments about how I must be training him for someone or have an autistic kid at home or anything. It was pretty cool
I did kind of mess up and when she said her brother is autistic, too, I replied "Oh, that's cool!" which most people would probably think is strange, but I'm sure she understands :rofl1:
Its mother funking FRIDAY! And the sun is shining!
I'm stuck in court with volatile people, but hey, can't win em all : D
Chloe is doing well, I am alive, I have an incredible family that loves and supports me. This is good news. I have things that are not so good going on, but I'm trying REALLY hard to focus on the good, even though I'm in tears over the bad stuff as I type this.
I bought myself an early birthday present =)
New Balance Minimus!
It is Friday, I have this weekend off, and I am sitting in the apartment with the dogs and having some drinks. GLORIOUS, especially after the insane day at work today, the highlight of which I got to listen to an...interesting...client tell me about how her neighbor strangles his dogs and then eats them.
Oh, yes. That was interesting.
I quit my job, have the week off, have a moving truck booked and a job lined up. I'm getting out of my lease, my dog and car are coming with me, and that's the extent of my commitments.
My weekend is full of cat snoogles, strawberries, whipped cream, episodes of House of Lies & Shameless. Does the immediate future get any better than this?
I am so, so relieved.
I met Amber Marshall from Heartland today at a herding trial.
And got smeared with sheep poo by a dog lol.
I have about half my costume built, I have to paint and decorate it and sew part of it...can't wait for calgary!
Logan and I start AKC handling classes on Tuesday!
Also, it was 70 degrees today. <3
Also, I started getting my gecko supplies together! I have paper towels, a plastic tub to make the enclosure out of, and lots of fake plants. I have to find time to make it to the herp store sometime this week. I found a decent local breeder, and so I can do it all cheaper than the Pangea kit. I do still want a Pangea gecko or 37 sometime, but I'll start small
It's Presidents' Day!! So I get to work at 10 instead of having to wake up at 5:30 to get there by 6:30!
After nearly a year of waiting I'm down to five days.
Going to the breeders this weekend to get a crash course in handling and to play with PUPPPPPPPPPIES!
I solidified that I love cows yesterday. And... Fried Rabbit for lunch today.
Also, I had more good news that I cannot remember now.
