Job, Dogs, Birthdays

God really works in mysterious ways. So, I get a phone call from the Mease Hospital volunteer coordinator saying that an ICU RN was looking for me. I had 1 convo with her about a year ago. Any way, I called her and she was wondering if I could hook her up with a medical transcription job b/c she just had a baby and wants to work from home. How ironic that I sit here complaining about my job and how I would do anything to be a vet tech and/or RN instead, and an RN would rather be doing what I'm doing. That's hilarious. SOOOOO, I am going to be thankful for where I am right now and take one day at a time. BTW, not sure how much I was able to help her, but she might have us babysit, yay!

I spent about 3 hours at the vet clinic yesterday, mostly shadowing while VTs and the vet went room to room seeing patients. There was a 12 year old Weimaraner with a mouth tumor. Poor thing. He could barely walk and he was just old! I was trying to picture what Allie would be like at that age. She will probably finally behave on her leash and not be so hyper! So, I am up to 14 volunteer hours out of 80. A cat had some teeth pulled, dog with fleas, shots, blood work, good stuff like that.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHRISTA! What is with all these May BDs - Jan, Chloe, Fritz, Nicole, Christa, Faye???? I guess August was a good month for some.

I haven't been responding to you guys sorry!! I've been spending all my internet-free-time looking at baby stuffs.
You should definitely be really grateful that you guys can work from home...i would love it if i could. We have no idea what we're going to do when it comes time for me to pop. Oh well...we'll cross that bridge when it gets closer i guess!

I know that we are not the norm, most Americans work full- time away from home and never get to see their kids. I am grateful for what we got, my job is what I do, not who I am, but I still am really excited for my career as a vet tech!
