what got me thru today

on December 1, 2008 - 2:40pm

After a wonderful week off, I knew today wouldnt be a good day at work but I didnt think it would be as horrible as it was. 5 am, walking the dogs and trying to get them to do business and they are goofing around in the fresh snow. cute but jeeze, I listened to Noel, Ave Maria, (im jewish, go figure) all the way in to work, 20 minutes. get to work, realize the woman who now pulls my crappy reports is off today and I have to pull them and I have to pull them for Wed, Thurs Fri Sat and Sunday! and weekly! I didnt even finish. I still have several to run yet tomorrow. And she got to work Friday and get holiday pay and none of the rest of the team did. Listened to Ave Maria all the way home and am doing so again. That and Petit Papa Noel. oh, an aside, watched the youtube of Josh on british morning show. Let me drag out my violin when he says hes single. Dude! Call her!!!!!!!!!

dog news

on November 24, 2008 - 1:32pm

Got the greyhound boy back from the specialist today. He did lots of prodding and more x rays and still feels his back legs, there is no physical damage. no muscle atrophy, he did take a couple more x rays of his lower back and think the dog might have a pinched nerve in the lower part. He is talking to our Greyhound adoption coordinator to ok a ct scan at the Univ vet hosp. Im sure they will approve it as he cant very well go to a forever home with a maybe like this. So Now, Ive got him back home and he is sooooo groggy from the anasthesia, poor guy, Im just sitting here staring at his chest move while hes sleeping.

Christmas present

on November 22, 2008 - 6:51pm

Ive started my baking for my presents. Every year I give my friends a huge plate of cookies and treats. Its pretty cheap for me and they love it because theres enough to share with lots of people. I still have my foster, and Monday I take him to a specialist to see what is wrong with his leg. This is the longest Ive had a foster and unfortunately he's getting pretty comfy here. But he isnt ready to go to his forever home with a bad leg so, we shall see! He's a real sweety though. the cold snap we just had sucked big time! I know noone is ever ready for winter, but man, mid November and its 10 degrees outside! yuck! That does not bode well for the next 5 months!

Edit: Hes actually a foster greyhound. Thou they are kind of like kids,

My fundraiser next Saturday!

on November 9, 2008 - 7:21pm

Well, I dont suppose Ill ever have the chance of Josh coming to any of my fundraisers, but Im almost ready for mine. My friend and I have an Art and Craft fundraiser every year to make money for our greyhound organization. Saturday, 11/15/08 10 am to 3 pm at the Warren Artist Habitat in North Minneapolis. We get lots of things donated by the hound owners and I always have several of my watercolors for sale. This year I made a couple grapevine wreaths with silks too. We usually make a couple thousand which is pretty good. Probably wont be as much this year because of the economy but you never know. I hope the people who get to go to the fundraisers that Josh has been at really really appreciate that they get to go and tons of others will never have that opportunity. I know I wont. I just keep plugging away, trying to make ends meet and make a difference in my little corner of the world. I know, we arent supposed to be jealous or say anything about wishing we could be there but Im sorry, I do.
