Two New Jobs

Yes, I have not one but two new jobs.

I am now working at a small local pet supply store 2 days a week.  The store strives to provide quality pet supplies at affordable prices.  It is five minutes away and Pierce the Puppy gets to come to work with me.

3 days a week, I assist a pet physical therapist who has a very busy practice.  She does pet physical therapy on land and in the pool.  Some dogs come just to use the pool, to get more comfortable in the water, and/or for really good low-impact exercise.  The facility is also five minutes from home which allows me to go home at lunch time and take Pierce out. 

I love the commute, the fact that I now work for local businesses, the set schedule (Fridays and Sundays off), the steady income, and working with animals.

Feeling really thankful <3

Hot, Hot, Hot - Snippets

It's hot.  Really hot.  Maybe even hotter than last week in Bermuda, but in Bermuda there was the ocean to dip into.  Anyhow, it is hot.

Strawberry ice cream, frozen fruit, central air, cold showers...  All work well for a quick cool down.


In the 95 degree heat, I can't bring myself to run. It is even too hot by 7 a.m. and still too hot at 7 p.m.  Sure, I take quick walks around the block with the pup a few times a day, but it is just not the same. 

I've always been a summer person, but I find myself really looking forward to the fall.


Had an interview and got a new job this morning to add to my current part-time job.  It is a job with a local business that I really believe in.  Training on Friday and start next Tuesday.


This afternoon was spent with a friend and her baby girl.  Mmmmmm.... babies.  Mmmmmm.... girl talk.  

Dare I say, better than strawberry ice cream :-)
