Monday Madness


I've taken half a day off work today to attend a Women In Leadership day at our Statehouse to watch legislation in action.  I interned there when I was in college and absolutely loved it, so I'm looking forward to going back again.  Plus I get a free breakfast and lunch out of it, so there's that.  I don't really care for the state of politics today, but I still think it'll be a fun day.  A couple friends are supposed to be attending as well, so it'll be nice to catch up with them.  My job is literally within a block of the Statehouse so it'll be a quick walk there once the event ends.

I have exactly eight weeks left at my job, which means only four more paychecks.  Kinda freaking out that I now have to start looking for work again.  I *HATE* job hunting!  I'm hoping that the experience I'm gaining now will help me find a high paying job elsewhere.  It's not really what I want to do but sometimes you just have to take what you can get.

I'm hoping to be able to get Shiver into the vet this weekend for the tests to confirm whether or not he has Cushings.  I'm really hoping and praying he doesn't have it.  He had barely been eating anything for awhile there and got so thin.  I've been feeding him green beans, yogurt, and tuna here and there just for the extra calories and he seems to slowly be putting some weight back on.

Most of our snow has melted from the rain this past weekend.  Now the back yard is flooding.  The front yard isn't though, because the driveway is kind of on a downward angle.  I forgot I actually had grass since it's been covered in snow for so long!

7 showed me some love:

OMD maybe this will be a chance to Network and get some Job Leads.

We hope it isn't Cushing's. Paws Crossed.

Love the photo at the top, so true!
Hope you get a lot out of your Women in Leadership course.
We have all our paws crossed you find another job soon.
When I was waiting for Bridges results the vet said it was either thyroid or Cushings, with any luck, it will be Shivers thyroid which is easy to treat.
One of the things I did notice about her was she couldn't chew hard thibgs so you might want to replace his food with wet food that is more easily chewed up.

We hope you enjoyed the conference and we send you good luck wishes for the job hunt. Dakota had Cushing's, not a fun disease, but at least with most dogs there are meds that can help control it. All paws crossed.

Watching government work or not work could be interesting. I hope you got to meet up with old friends and have a good day.

Oh dear that's terrible to not see your grass in such a long time! I hope your Monday off was good. I also hope Shiver is doing better, poor kitty
