@suzie211 yay for Chicago And how funny - I actually went to college at UD (and my BF was born in Dayton!) We are going to Columbus... I haven't been there in years and years. The only thing I remember about it was Easton (?) mall where I first tried sushi!
@KeptInStitches Thanks! Definitely ice cream, followed by cheesecake. This is Pasha!!And can't say I've bathed a cat, not really a cat girl, never owned one.
OMG! @Swazzle Love your cat story. I used to help bathe my ex's cats but we did it in the bathtub. They'd mostly just howl and glare at you during the whole process. Neither cat was declawed...I'm amazed I never came out of it with serious injuries.
My week is having some ups and downs. It's really really up because I just got an official offer on Monday for a new job. This job is nearly twice my current salary, is 30 minutes from home (rather than an hour and a half plus commute), has lots of growth potential, and is going to be way more challenging and interesting than what I'm doing now. I'm also extra excited because the job relies very heavily on excellent written and verbal communication skills. I went to college for journalism and political science so I'm really excited to finally put my degrees to use! I won't get an official start date until after the background check and drug screen are completed but I expect to start my new job within 3 to 4 weeks! I told my boss and my department yesterday and I thought the meeting went pretty well. They're all sad to see me go but they understand the reasons why I'm leaving. I'm only 26 years old so I need to think realistically about my career potential and this job I'm in now isn't going to take me where I need or want to go in life.
My week is also down. My grandpa fell and broke his hip yesterday afternoon. I don't really know anything about the circumstances around his fall but it doesn't matter. A fall for an 83 year old is still very serious. They were going to do surgery last night but postponed it until this afternoon so they could perform a stress test to make sure he can handle the surgery first. Everyone's thoughts, prayers, good vibes are much appreciated! My maternal grandfather passed before I was even born so he's the only grandpa I've ever had and he's an absolutely incredible person.
@swazzle scarred him for life!!
We had to give Buddy a bath a few weeks ago, what a clusterfuck that was.
