Pics of Princess Sadie

Now she's called Princess Amy, but she was all doll. And she wasn't even stinky!

Thanks Ma!

Thanks for blowing the leaves off the deck so I can sun if you get Papa to quit giving me so many treats I could run around a little more...just sayin'.

My poor mom now has pneumonia. I swear she can't get a break. At least she's on antibiotics now. I am really feeling badly for her. Hoping she is better soon!

Today I will be transporting a wonderfully stinky bloodhound pup from Kentucky to Tennessee. I'll be leaving shortly to pick her up. I'll be sure to post some pics!! Tata for now.

Pet Assistance Network and Brown Dog Foundation help families struggling to care for their pets

Know of someone who is struggling to keep their pet despite rough financial times? A new organization called Pet Assistance Network may be able to help.

For those in Nashville and selected other areas (hopefully in Knoxville soon), Brown Dog Foundation can help those in need of emergency life-saving veterinary services for their pets but who are unable to afford it.

a little gratitude spreads like warm butter...

while sitting on the deck today I got this nice little reminder to be grateful for the smallest of treats...

The ears have it...

An infection that is. Feelin' a bit on thew yucky side today, but manageable.

Still nothing on the job front and no prospects. I have tried to reach the unemployment office nearly 100 times and STILL have yet to get through to a person OR a voice mail box. There's not even a call queue, just a message saying you have to try your call later due to the "high call volume." Great.

On the positive side I am painting a lot and will be exhibiting at Wilde Thyme Art at their grand opening in early December. Check them out at I believe the art will be for sale online as well.

I am looking forward also to seeing my friend Jan from Canada tonight. She will be celebrating the defense of her dissertation, which is today, and has really worked hard to get her PhD in social work. I know she will be relieved and happy to have gotten through the day. Go Jan!

All the pups and kitties are doing well but Pepper has been suffering with a grumbly tummy recently. She threw up on the bed last night and looked so pitiful as is to say "I'm sorry...I couldn't help it!" She is such a sensitive little soul.

Gonna lay down for a few minutes before getting back to making more art for the show. I need to have 20 to 30 pieces so I need to busta move!

Well, that was quick...

I showed up at my new job after a little training, and found that I had no office, no phone, no computer, and no place to sit. Huh? Couldn't they have stuffed a desk in the corner of one of the meeting rooms or something?

It's a growing company and they do NOT have any of their processes down yet. Look, I'll be 45 friggin' years old in January. I know I'm not a seasoned social worker as of yet, but maybe a chair? Maybe a desk that could be shared that is not piled high with papers and charts? I was so disappointed. Constant interruptions in clinical work would have been the norm. I have never quit a job without staying a while, but at this age, I know the score and I was going to be taking Xanax by the end of the week. The gals there were sweet, but it was really going to be miserable for me as a professional.

I've always worked in very mature and professional offices and this was like being in someone's house with people yelling back and forth from the kitchen to the living room. Yes, I know I am spoiled, but I'm too old to be going that far backward. Perhaps my first clue was when I threw up in the middle of the night after my first day. I DO NOT throw up and have NEVER in my life vomited from being emotionally overwrought.

Apparently when I got laid off I had the only good social work job in the city. Maybe I'll just go back to marketing, be bored, and draw an easy paycheck.

Starting a new job tomorrow! Finally I am employed after being laid off in April!! Pay is terrible, but it will get better with licensure.
