Well, finally this year tptb realized the error and first are letting us work ot! YES!!! Im able to get 12 or more a week! sweet on the pay check and also, they are getting us more help! The way the economy is now, I just thank god I get to work! Every day I thank god for that.

Whats important in life

on January 31, 2009 - 6:58pm

This morning, like most Saturday mornings I went to Gillette Childrens Hosp. with my greyhound Angie to visit the kids. If I havent mentioned before, she is a registered therapy dog. Nothing earth shattering occurred. Nothing heart breaking. We visited a 4 year old girl who had a cast from both her toes to her chest. A 9 year old girl who was just learning how to speak again after a terrible brain injury. A couple weary drs. stopped, kneeled down and petted her for a minute before going back to their work. Angie was her usual calming loving self. I just hold the leash and smile. A couple hours if this and she is just in heaven. I brought her home and got to go do some more overtime at my job. Im tired but I have a job. Ive got a job that I get to have overtime now and then. And I still have my house. Its still a battle with the bank, but Im trying and they seem to be ok with that so far. My 20 some year old furnace is still keeping me and my dog warm in these cold days. And the roof doesnt leak and I have food in my cupboards. My car runs fine, OH, And I can walk and talk and all of my family and friends are healthy. Yeah I was bummed that I didnt get to be on that chat. yeah it pisses me off a bit that some get to have so much more of Josh than most. But when that boy put his hand on my Angies shoulders and that pain and confusion on his face washes off I am more cleansed. I feel more blessed than I ever could imagine. As great as Josh Grobans voice is there is so much more to this world/ to my world than him. Ticun Olam I feel I am a very small part in it.
Edit/thanks for the positiveness. Yep, reprioritize. what is really important in your life.

quick update

on January 9, 2009 - 7:24pm

Just a quick update on my foster. the greyhound Pets of America foster coordinator took him in. He is still kind of limping sometimes and noone can pinpoint whats up so he will need more work, more vet visits, so we dont want a family to adopt and then have to pay all those bills. And he has been with me for nearly 3 months and getting too comfy. its not good to have them stay at a foster home for so long, then they have a harder time adjusting to a permanant home. So, we said good bye to him tonight and Im kind of releived. my house is sooooo small, we were tripping over each other and now my little diva Angie can get some real me time! Otherwise, cold winter, still have my job! furnace still works~ gotta love that!

Resting up

on December 29, 2008 - 7:55pm

Havent wrote for a while so thought I would catch the few people who read this up. ON the foster front, I still have my foster from a couple months ago. Poor boy, we just had so many come off the track in oct. and with the economy and the holidays people are just not adopting greyhounds right now. Hope more will in January. He is 100% healthy now, just rest, massage, exercise and he is all better which is super. I was bad this month. I didnt pay my home loan at all. I bought a new winter coat which I hadnt had a new coat it about 5 years. New mittens, socks, couple pair of jeans, I did pay the rest of my bills for the month but after a couple months of not paying my home loan even though Ive called them, the forclosure letter came today. But they say they want to work with me so I have to call and work out a deal to repay what I owe. thats a call Im looking foward to making! Not. I still have my job. Aetna let go 1000 people last week, but not me. No raise, no bonus, but I still have my job. should be another "challenging" year. But I have a warm coat. And I still have my job, And I go to Gillette childrens hosp every Sat. and realize how lucky I am. And my furnace is still keeping my little house warm. And I still have my job. yeah,
