I'm in the same boat. I'm not even going to miss my coworkers, though, except one or two of them (but Facebook, so not really). But the dogs? Heck yes. I've already been thinking of all the animals I WON'T be seeing anymore ever again As much as I've been wanting to leave for YEARS now, I think I'll still end up tearing up my last day

It's raining apocalyptically here and, naturally, this means my basement is going to be wet. Again. Because its rained ALL THE DAYS here this summer. Forget you, Mother Nature.

Well, the great garbage disposal incident of 2013 has left a lasting mark on me. I have an area right on the bottom knuckle of my thumb from being rubbed around and around in the disposal opening. I have a nice, big, weeping abrasion making me cringe with every movement of my hands today.

Baindaid brand or cvs brand blister bandaids are a Godsend Eddie. Will take all the weep and pain out of it, and makes a bubble area that protects it from being bumped into. They are wonderful for blisters, but good for what you have too.

Why can't it be my time?!



"This guy has a lot of presence under saddle and would make a fabulous dressage prospect for at least a high intermediate rider."

He will be up for adoption this week. AT THE OHIO FACILITY. Why must they do this to me?!

I saw that guy this morning! Gorgeous, but then again, OTTBs have a special place in my heart.

I can understand the nearly desperate want for a horse though. I have many years left to wait until I can own a horse again, because after Indie's death, my parents weren't keen on getting another. It would've helped a lot with the healing process, but it will be worth the wait I hope.

They were supposed to get my dad in for his scopes first thing this morning and now they've pushed it back to the afternoon. So now we have to wait even longer. They're going to call my mom once he's back in his room so we can go over there. One doctor said yesterday if they find something and know what's going on, as long as the blood transfusion is done, he can probably go home today. So we're just hoping they find something.

The dogs are the hardest part. I can still see my coworkers, but the dogs? Now that I'm gone, it's over. Two years of bonding with those dogs and it's all just... over. I've gone through this before; I've worked at 2 other daycares before this one. But somehow this is the hardest.

I have a TON of pictures of my favorites that I sent to myself to keep. I'd love to share some of them + stories with you guys but I have no idea if that's kosher since they're not mine, so I've been erring on the side of caution. I wish I could though.

I guess I'm just struggling with it. I know I made the right decision, but this one is really hard.
This is a decision I've been bouncing around trying to make. My work is driving me nuts, too high of dog numbers lately and not enough knowledgeable staff. The biggest thing bothering me is how tiny our facility is compared to the amount of dogs we take on... But lately we don't turn dogs away? Just stress. Not to mention there are a few people I work with who handle dogs a little harsher than I'm comfortable with, but I won't get into details on that on a public forum. As many things as there are with my work that make me want to run away from there and fast, there is still the side of me that wants to stick around and hopefully help make it a better and more productive place. I do actually like the majority of the people I work with and we are low on employees that are trained as shift leaders and are more dog savvy so I don't feel right leaving just yet especially since my boss is already a bit freaked out that we are losing one of our trainers.

Josh and I are looking in parts of West Virginia at places to live now so if we end up out there I may have to quit anyways. Just a hard decision to make and I do really like my boss a lot and don't want to upset her.

I am full of dog slobber. -.- Zora barks at me to get my attention, which I complety ignor (unless she needs to go out), because she isn't supposed to bark so much. Now she's gone over to pushing up my shirt (I'm lying on the couch) and licking my stumach. seriously, dog? Ew.

The hardest part for me right now is that we COULD make it work. However, that would mean I would have to give up lessons, and a new vehicle which I desperately need, and a house, and savings... All of our extra money would go into a horse, and it just doesn't make sense.

I hope someday you are able to find a special horse to help fill that hole. I know how hard it is to live without your heart horse.
