The first week is almost finished and I think I'm catching on. Until I get this figured out I am going to be putting in some hours! Who said you can't teach an old --- woman new tricks?
I should never post when I'm tired. Ya'll know I can't spell but shoot fire, advertising it like that on the WWW is too much.
I successfully worked a referral from intake to admission. My boss smiled at me and said he thought I was catching on quickly. Guess what, that brought a SMILE to my face! Learning a job this different is really,..... well scary. Once I know what I'm doing it will be fine. Just like anything else, I hate being a beginner.
I'm really trying to catch up on my favorite blogs. Getting used to getting up at 6am and getting home at 6pm is a 12 hr/8hr day. Does every working woman live like this? Is this women's liberation? Liberation from what? We haven't had dinner this week. I have not figured that part out yet. My hubby said all I have to do is work and sleep, but the family hasn't quite picked up all my jobs yet. Eggs and peanut butter sandwiches only go so far. My mind is trying to wrap around single working moms. That has to be the hardest job out there.
Besides all the regular stuff, one of my cats got hurt. Kathy where are you? Looks like a bite to her rear end. My husband will not take her to the vet he thinks it will heal. I am not so sure. A chunk of hide is separated from where it's supposed to be connected. How can tissue that has never grown fur get a layer of protective skin on it? it is clean and pink and looks good as far as a wound goes, no infection. Thank goodness her little bum hole isn't ripped. Humans can't be stitched up after time has gone by, what about animals? We're using crazy glue in the ER. I can see how it needs to go back together, do I dare? I am SOOOOO not a vet. I hate to even give animals shots. It's superficial as far as the tissues and muscles but the hide is cleanly separated and it's just there. She's walking alright and eating and everything. We're keeping her inside too. OK all you knowledgeable cat owners, suggestions? Please don't tell me to shoot my husband, he grew up on a farm in the country. Farmers think different, and he may be right, it just bothers me.
