The Good News

I got confirmation yesterday that I got a job walking dogs and doing pet sitting! I'm really happy to have a shot at a less sedentary, less stressful way to make money than office work (which it seems was literally killing me.)

It will certainly not be much money, but it may be enough to keep us afloat. And it might not be very intellectually stimulating, but I intend to seek some kind of school (vocational or accredited college, or both) fairly soon, so I figure I can deal with a day job that isn't too mentally taxing.

I know a few of you have experience with this kind of work, so if you happen to have any pointers, I'd be a most grateful and attentive student!

Dear Universe: please let this work out for me.

you'd be surprised how mentally stimulating it can be. the interaction with animals (which i know you love), plus just the act of taking a walk, can be extremely rewarding.

good luck, and keep us posted! *HUG*

Thanks so much, hon. We should certainly do dinner! When's good for you? If you wanna drop me a line with some dates, we can pick something that is mutually convenient. It's been too long :)

soooo...
The wolf is walking dogs? They better be on thier best behavior. Or maybe you just need to teach them to howl.

Re: soooo...
Now there's an idea! I bet their owners will love me for it.

You deserve this. I felt so sad when I heard you were going back to office work, because there was just no way I could imagine that being anything other than torture for you. This could be a great move for you, also because being out in the fresh air and playing with pets is incredibly healthy for you.

You're spot on. I really do think working in an office is bad for me. And I can't imagine how I would not love being outside playing with pups!
