Random Notes

I meant to create a post for yesterday, but the weekend went so fast and was over before I knew it!

I started the new job yesterday.  My first day wasn't too bad.  I didn't have a computer so we really didn't do much.  The company ordered the computer but when they opened it up, it was the wrong one.  It should be here today and then I'm hoping to get started with training.  Everyone seems really nice.  One of my friends will be starting there in a couple of weeks, so that's exciting!  Our job is only temporary - they think they'll probably keep us until about March or so.  However, the money is good and it will hopefully allow me to pay down some bills.

I have to commute with this job, so I'll probably limit visiting blogs to the weekend and maybe here and there during the week if there's time.
I realized that in all the time I've had Shiver, I have never once washed his toys.  They were all really gross and smelly, so into the washer they went.  Who knew he had so many toys?  The picture above is only a small portion of them.  After they were all washed and dried, I put them in his bed.  He's never actually used it as a bed so we keep his toys in there.  Washing them has made a world of difference.  He immediately scattered them throughout the house and has played with them a lot more since then.
It's been almost a year since Chico was diagnosed with leukemia.  He's doing really well, considering.  He takes a steroid pill every morning. He still gets a sore here and there and is slow to heal, but nothing like what it was before he started taking the medication.  The biggest difference I've noticed in him is that he's aged a lot in the last year.  The picture above is him in younger years, the picture below is from earlier this year.  He probably sleeps a little more now, but he's still the same sweet boy he always was.

I'm glad the first day at your new job went well, even if you couldn't quite start training yet. And I hope your first day of true training goes well! I'm sure it will. I bet it's great knowing that one of your friends will be starting at the same place soon. And when you think about it, March is a long way away, plenty of time to bring in those paychecks, get caught up, and plan as needed.

Our furbabies sure are the best, but they also sure can leave an odor on things, can't they? I just cleaned one of my furry critters' favorite beds over the weekend. It's like I'd never washed it before, even though it hadn't been cleaned that long ago. I'm so glad to hear that Chico is doing well, all things considered. I wish our furbabies could be with us forever, but since they can't, we just have to make the most of the time we have with them!

Good luck at work today! I'm sure you'll do great.

Aww, look at that adorable little face, another cause for celebration. You are doing so well Chico.
If I'd known you were washing toys, I'd have sent Elliots over!

It's always nice to know someone at a new job. We throw dog toys in with our regular laundry as they get dirty. Then they treat it like a new toy. Way to go Chico!
