Work is tomorrow. And school. Ugh. Ugh ugh ugh. It's really starting to stress me out.
Oh and I swear today was 'walk your untrained dog day' today. With the exception of one really nice golden and one nice ACD (but it was with an out of control border collie), every dog I walked past on my walk was lunging at the end of the leash and barking at my guys.
The worst was a dog ran up to us off leash and started jumping around my dogs, who growled at it. I was really nervous because the dog was so big and my guys are so small. Oh and there was no owner in sight. It ran off and started following a girl jogging with two other big dogs on leashes a long ways away from me. I have no idea if it was her dog or just following her. Seems really weird to have two dogs leashed and jogging nicely and then one dog running wherever it pleased.
It's making me wonder if I shouldn't carry some sort of deterrent with me. I've NEVER come across an off leash dog at that park that wasn't working with their owner or right by the owner's side.
The breeding I was hoping for did not take, so I have to wait 3-4 months for another breeding and hopefully will have a pup this summer.
My house always looks like a tornado hit by Monday mornings!
I normally have my coffee and surf the net till 8 in the morning (which is in like 8 minutes!) then on Mondays it takes about 1-1 1/2 hours just to straighten up/put things back where they are supposed to be BEFORE I can even start actual cleaning & laundry!
Today was my first day getting up and going somewhere besides the radio station for the last half a decade... feels so weird. And I miss my co-workers. =<
Today the promotions were announced at work and all my lovely coworkers who hoped to get it have been bitching about it and me getting it. I get it, I have only been here a year and a half and not twenty.. I am sure i dont know as much as some of my coworkers, but i get along with everyone.
Ugh, i don't know.
((((((HUGS)))))) Jules. You know you made the right choice. They'd be just as torqued over you just being offered the position.
It's not necessarily who knows the most that matters, flexibility, work ethic, willingness to learn and change as work needs change, ability to work with your bosses . . . all those things come into play. So does attitude.
There are a lot of people who work for a paycheck . . .
Dameon still has fleas. :l
I put revolution on him and he still has them. What in the heck am I supposed to do now? They are creeping me the crap out (I am now paranoid I am covered with them) and they are making him itchy. Poor boy scratched so much he tore up his back and made his ear bleed really bad. Can I dose him again with revolution? I've sprayed my apartment, vacuumed everything, washed his bedding twice, gave him a bath in dawn (not doing that again - I swear I almost killed him from the stress of it)...I just don't know what to do and I'm freaking out about it. I cannot stand fleas. At all. Period. Even more so when they're making one of my animals miserable.
NO. Don't dose him again. Honestly, you'll have to sit there and go through him with a flea comb, wash everything, etc. (I've never had a ferret with fleas, so take it with a grain of salt, it's just what I've heard. But redosing revolution is a no)
I know nothing about ferrets, so check before you try it, but you might consider dusting him and his environs with food grade diatomaceous earth.
Nope. Ferrets are far too sensitive to anything that can be inhaled because, well, it WILL be inhaled. They're just too small with a delicate system to use it safely.
He got .11mls of the <5lbs revolution last time. So, about half a kitten vial. The remaining I split between the rats, just in case. I wasn't sure if upping his dose level (aka "redosing him") would be safe. I think he was dosed at 7mg/kg, guesstimating he was 2.5lbs.
And yes, I wouldn't dust him...but I'm tempted to dust my apartment and then vacuum it all up. Ee ew ew. I'm worried about letting Dameon out to run around, too, because a.) I don't want him picking up more fleas from the floor and b.) I don't want him spreading fleas all over the place.
I still can't figure out how he got fleas in the first place. Just my luck.
I can NOT get myself together today. I feel like there's a lot to do, and it's already 8:30. I did manage to go to Petco and such. But I want/need to brush Zander, do laundry(which is going to freak him out), vacuum, dishes, bath, and I was kinda hoping to veg out on some Borderlands 2 with the sister and brother in-laws before bed.
Bah. The next two weeks are going to suck anyway. Jin's on a back to back, and he works one of the days he's home. So he's gone for 4 days, home for only 1, then back out for another 4.
I was at work for an extra hour tonight training my replacement. Blah. I think this is the only night I get to work with her so I wanted to be as thorough as possible and show her everything. Because the other kennel assistant like, doesn't do half the things she's supposed to, so I didn't want to leave all the training up to her...
And I have my math placement testing tomorrow but I have done nothing to prepare for it. I just need to refresh myself. I'm good at math, I understand math quickly, but I lose it in the blink of an eye if I haven't used it. And since it's been almost 3 years since I've had a math class.... yeah I'm pretty sure I'm super rusty. There is no way I am taking a review class.
My poor boyfriend hit a deer with his car this morning on the way to pick me up from work, and totally jacked up the front end of it. I'm so thankful he's okay and that it didn't cause him to lose control of the car, but it'll be a lot of money in repairs that we cant really afford right now.
Eta: Also, I am getting super weird mixed signals from someone I really want to be closer to (friendship only) - some days they seek me out and talk to me, but usually they act like I'm just kind of there... zzzz.
It makes me wonder if I'm really so lame that they just decided "screw it" after spending a little time with me. And the time I spent with them just makes me want their friendship more.
Ugh, I'm sorry.
I'm awake, again. I can't sleep more than 3 hours at a time lately.
Ugh I hate hate hate insomnia. Have you tried melatonin Adrianne? It's the one thing that's worked for me besides lots of booze or the pills that I get hooked on.
Oh oh oh, AND I was psyching myself out all day about getting some pens and a sketchbook and getting back into some drawing. Nope, totally forgot to do that as I was in my rush to gtfo the workplace.
I haven't, yet, but I should. This is getting ridiculous.
My son decided to go to bed at 4pm and wake up at 1:30am. GOOD JOB BRIGGS. Im freaking exhausted.
