The two dogs I’m sitting right now certainly are a bundle of work. They require feeding, cleanup, play-time, and they’re constantly wanting to cuddle with me, but then they tend to whipe their snot-noses all over me.

Okay, so I’m house sitting for a couple of weeks, and this morning, my first morning with the dogs, I wake up, feed them breakfast, and they puke ALL OVER. I didn’t know little dogs could puke so much! It’s like having a baby around that pukes up after every meal. YUCKY. I think it ...

Well, I’m at work again today, so that means I survived the first day. I actually had to work late on my first day – something that I think is quite common around here. Not a bad thing at all; a lot is expected of you at this agency – I just have to learn ...

… I’ll be back in the 9-5 world. Actually, I tend to get to the office fairly early, so it’ll be the 7:30-5 world. I’m trying to get my house cleaned before I return to work. I’ve neglected it, and things are crazy-messy. I’m also trying to get over to the SBA to talk to ...
