    Sawyer jumped on Huck as soon as he walked in the door and now Huck is walking on three legs.

    I have to work an hour early tomorrow :( Normally this would mean getting off an hour early, in which case I wouldn't mind it so much, getting off before 6 on a Friday would be fantastic. However the kennel assistant/receptionist that works tomorrow afternoon just started last week so she's still in training and needs someone up front at all times helping her. So I can't leave early because that would leave 1 tech and the new girl - and the tech can't possibly do appointments and help her up front. So I have to stay. RAWR.

    But the idea of having to wake up before 6am is absolutely horrifying to me.

    Our basement is flooded from the rain, and power is out at work. So cleaning basement and not making money.

    Scheduled Comcast to come to the new house today and hook up cable & Internet between 2-4PM. Had to have one of my colleagues sit at the house to wait for them -- I got home just now at almost 5 and they (Comcast) haven't shown up.

    I called -- they gave me a ticket number and told me to expect a call tonight or tomorrow.

    I told her there will not be another opportunity to have somebody come sit at the house to wait for them to show and that I was upset. She kept saying, "there's no reason to be frustrated. We'll figure it out and is there anything else I can help you with?"

    YES! Have somebody come to my house and install my stuff in the hours they were given to install it!!!!!

    AND give me a phone number where I can call and complain to a person right away without a zillion prompts!

    They caught me on a bad week! lol I told her just to cancel everything and I'll find someone who can show up to appointments on time. (I'll feel really guilty if there was a legit reason for the no show) but UGH!

    I'm starting to wonder if the only real solution is to start showing up to work drunk.

    Had to help euthanize a coworkers dog today. :(

    Really shook me up. I didn't know the dog, but it hurt me to see my coworker in that much emotional pain. He's had a shoddy month, and loosing his best friend that he's had by his side for a decade and a half was just icing on the cake. It sucks.

    The numbers on the scale don't matter. Are you eating OFTEN enough? Breakfast-lunch-dinner? I cut out anything carby after lunch per the advice of my trainer/nutritionalist and I can feel a difference. I'm old too.

    Tonight I found out it's entirely possible to get a Jeep Wrangler sideways into oncoming traffic lanes all while keeping it shiny side up. The good news is that I avoided the accident and I luck was certainly on my side today.

    Screw you moving truck!

    Dear pet owners, please stop bringing your dogs in on frickin Flexis. We have several clients that bring their large, pulling dogs in on flexis, which makes it difficult, especially with my tiny hands, to lead them both back to the daycare room and open doors. If you are going to have the leash locked anyways, just use a normal leash. Arg.

    Just a sympathy post. I hear you. I really, really do.

    The moment where you open up your Facebook profile page and see your smiling, beautiful, grey-faced, perfect dog's picture and you realize that it's only been five months since you lost her but it feels like forever and your heart hurts so much that you feel like it will crack and you feel like you're going to throw up with the grief of it all.
