Hey Sparkies! I am so glad that it is almost Friday! It has been a long and busy week. I need a reboot. Either my kids or myself have had appointments to attend every day this week. None of them being local. They all required a 15-20 mile or so drive each way. Dentists, lab tests, dermatologists and such.
Amongst all of that, we have been taking care of and training a Black Labrador Retriever pup that was on our doorstep Sunday after church. We live in the country and it is not uncommon for pets to get dumped at our house. All of our pets have been strays that we have taken in. Unfortunately, it is also a busy street due to people using it for a shortcut to the Underground to go to work so we have had some casualties also. He seems to be fairly well behaved and has not left the yard at all. We are working on walking on a leash and riding in the car right now. He loves to play fetch and get lots of love and attention.
It's been kind of stressful running around shopping for food, a dog house, leashes, toys and all the stuff that goes with having a dog plus worrying that he will stay in the yard and not get ran over. We looked at our options on keeping him in the yard but they all seem cruel or very expensive.
Wednesday, I went in for my first day of the job shadowing. Well, the new patient did not show up so that didn't work out yet. I got to tour the office and learn where everything was. She also sent home the Visual Therapy curriculum book for me to study in the meantime while we are waiting for another new patient to start. It's frustrating but at the same time I know that everything happens in God's timing. He brought this opportunity to me and I know it will come through when it is time.
I'm ready for the weekend and ready to take the opportunity to get outside, breathe in some fresh air and recharge my brain.
