Not going to lie…I am just exhausted this week. I had a post planned for today but I just honestly don’t have it in me to write it up so I am just going to rant a little bit today.
Work has been incredibly busy lately which is awesome because that means I am making money BUT it has been draining me physically & emotionally. This whole week my shoulders have been killing me and I’ve just been tired! On the bright side though I had a breakthrough with a dog yesterday which was an incredible experience! His name is Harley and he is a 15 year old poodle mix. The first time I groomed him I wasn’t able to go anywhere near his face and he would constantly try to bite me. Needless to say, I was not able to groom his face and he was left a little scruffy. Yesterday he came in and I knew it was going to be a tough afternoon. I wanted to make the best of the experience so I took his grooming really slow and wanted to build some more trust with him. It came down to the point where all I had left to groom was his face. It was matted and I knew that I wasn’t going to be able to brush through it without pissing the dog off so I talked to the owner and told her that I would try to shave his face but I warned her that if I couldn’t she would have to take him to the vet to have them do it. About 10 minutes later I was able to call the owner to let her know that I was able to shave it. Everyone was in shock that I was actually able to pull it off. The entire time I was freaking out inside and sweating like crazy. I was so incredibly nervous that he was going to snap on me and bite me, but he didn’t even try to once. I was in complete shock and am looking forward to grooming him again in 2 months. It is an amazing feeling to know that you can create a bond with difficult animals and get them to trust you.
I am SO behind on my TV shows that I just want to lay in bed and watch TV ALL DAY LONG. This work week needs to hurry up and be over with!
My little sister comes home today around 3PM from her dads and it is very exciting for me! Over the past year I feel like we have become closer and it is a great feeling considering we are 8 years apart. This year she starts her senior year of high school and I couldn’t be more proud of her! I can’t wait to see what the future hold for her.
I need a vacation. period. It is time to start planning a legit vacation somewhere and make a commitment. This would be a great time to check off one of my 101 in 1001 goals.
Eek. Sorry for the rant but I felt like I needed it.
What are your plans for the weekend?
