Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

Sorry we disapeared!

It has just been so crazy and stressful lately - but hopefully it will be getting better soon. My office is the same but we did find out we get our 5 paid sick days still - we still get our demerits (they call them points but whatever) and we still have a new timeclock and won't be able to do any sort of comp time (like skip lunch and leave early for a doctors appointment or things like that - leaving 60 minutes or more before your scheduled endtime, even if you work a full 8 hours, is now considered an absence) but I am getting new and better hours next week (I hope so at least) so that will help me be less stressed I hope.

Anyway, the cats are good - Kirzon has lost weight again, so he didn't get a booster shot but he did get a blood test. That came back ok, but it could be that he is eating less because his mouth is starting to bug him again. It didn't look bad but he is so weird with his mouth anyway I am not sure. He did seem to perk up and eat more over the weekend but last night not so much. This morning he was better again. So we will see how he is and on Friday if he is eating more we will take him to get the shot, if not he gets antibiotics for his mouth. Fun. Gus and Stella have their annual on Saturday so it isn't like we weren't going to be at the vet anyway.

Anyway this has to be short for now - I will try to get in some visiting and posting better later.

Sagira said...

I'm sorry that your job stresses you out so much. :(

Your firm needs to better understand that respect and dignity add so much more to employee morale and productivity... these policies are hurting them in the long run by making you all their enemies.

Hope Kirzon is all right and that he is just have a summer doldrum in terms of his appetite.
