I woke up sick. Ice cream obviously didn't help.

My bed is far too cozy, especially since I just put fresh bedding on it yesterday. I need to go and do my run but I wanna just sleep. The promise of sleep when I come back is not convincing my brain.

We have a special weather statement about funnel clouds being spotted, with a warning that they might touch down and you should be prepared to take shelter at any moment.
We also now have a severe thunderstorm warning, with a note after the quarter-inch hail and 60 MPH wind gusts, that funnel clouds have been spotted with this storm.

And yet no tornado watch...

Ummmm doesn't it seem like we should be having a tornado watch too?? Because funnel clouds are being spotted apparently ALL OVER town?

I just called home to make sure my dad was there because I'm worried about P. I asked him if he could let him out of his crate if he starts freaking out and he said he would watch him. Poor Baby P.

Also my head is acutely aware that a storm is rolling through and feels like it might EXPLODE.

Nineteen dogs here today, some daycare, some training, all very noisey and I'm still sick. I'm tired and hungry but not sure what I want to eat. I have two classes tonight, a puppy preschool with four and a training basics with nine. I really hope this new trainer interview goes well, we need another employee.

My mind is screwed up. All I wanted was to feel comfortable in my body. I have worked so hard at this. I'm now in a size 10 - which was my goal when I started. I'm simply curvy and I'll never be a size 4 and look good.

But when I look in the mirror, I still see the size 18. I KNOW I lost the weight, I KNOW I'm smaller, but yet I don't see it at all.

I had a flat tire. Of course I had to change it. IN THE SNOW. IN MAY. ON THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL.

WTF nature?!

Summer is being super extra snuggly which in itself is a great thing except the entire time my mind is on her birthday, which is coming up in less than a month. So I feel sad, even though she's being a doll. Why can't dogs live forever? Why do they have to get old?

And logically I know she's not 'old' and she's healthy and happy and active but still... 9 years... it doesn't seem right.

Dear Job Applicants,

First off, where are the millions of you that have asked if we are hiring when we weren't? We've had an incredibly low number of applicants for a posted job.

Yes, we are hiring for the pet department. For my job in fact. You are speaking to the correct person and probably should not be rude. I am the one that will recommend to my boss that she interview you or fact, my boss will not hire someone if I don't like you too.

Please don't allow your mother to bring you in and do all the talking for you while you look at your feet. I might have considered you if I had heard any words come out of your mouth. If you are applying for a full-time job you are old enough not to have Mom escort you in. Not hired.

Please don't wear pajama pants, gym clothes, sweat pants, ratty clothes, and so forth even if you are just turning in an application. It pretty strongly makes it look like you don't care if you get a job. Not hired.

If you can't spell, use a dictionary or spell check on word to fill out the application. We shredded the 10 applications that had basic words misspelled (they had nothing else going for them either). Not hired.

If you can't sign the application or fill out ALL the information (three references! THREE!), I will take that as laziness or lack of attention to detail. Not hired.

You should NEVER put "Didn't get along with my boss/coworkers" as a reason for leaving your job. Not hired. just can't find good help anymore. Anyone want a full time job with benefits?
