Well, my new job is going pretty good, I am worn out, but slowly getting used to being on my feet all day again. I work from 7:30 till about 4:30 or 5:00, and have a 30 minute lunch, and about 20 minutes or so that I actually get to sit down besides that. This grooming shop is busy, busy, grooming about 35 to 40 dogs a day. And, with spring approaching, I am told it gets much, much busier!  I have finally learned the computer, but am still struggling with the scheduling and what kind of haircuts go in which time slot, all the lingo concerning certain cuts, clipper blade sizes, etc. My boss has been great, she is patient with me, and assures me in a couple months, I will be doing great (I sure hope so.) One thing is for sure....the day flies by, and that is the good part. I am so worn out that I usually go to bed around 8:30 or 9:00, but I am hoping as I get more used to it, my body will adjust and I won't be so tired, LOL.

All the horses, mules, and dogs are doing great, we got all the horses up Friday and pulled shoes and trimmed feet. Soon, everyone will be shedding their winter coats, and slickin' up, can't wait.

My son and his girlfriend go to the doctor tomorrow to find out the gender of the baby, and I am looking forward to finding out so I will know what to buy at all the yard sales I plan on going to soon!

I have gotten to relax today, just puttering around, doing some laundry, and even made a lasagna and homemade Lemon Cream ice cream (which was REALLY good.) Tomorrow starts my workweek again, but I only have to work about 4 to 5 hours on Mondays which isn't bad. Hope everyone has a great week!


  1. Very pleased for you that your new job is working out so well!!!!!
