i hate phones

Posted: June 1, 2007 at 7:36 am

today promises not to be a fun day. i am stuck at the desk with the phones at work…my two least favorite jobs. but we all take our turns so oh well, it is only for 3 days. there has been some discussion lately about modifying my duties and keeping me on the desk for the next few weeks because of the swelling in my ankle. ha ha, good luck. if i wasn’t being a good little patient when i wss in a wheelchair and my ankle was actually broken, i wouldn’t expect too much cooperation now when it is technically healed. i sent an email out saying i was ignoring my ankle until my next xrays in a few weeks. if the xrays are good, then i am fine and able to do my job on my feet and not at a stupid desk. do i look like a desk jockey?

the next few days will be tough here too because while the barn and the bunnies are covered, the rest of the guys aren’t. oh well again, we will survive and figure it out but it will be a good thing when those pitties move on to their permanent rescue, less work, less field runs, more time for other things.

i need to look at my priorities and quit letting beautiful sweet faces facing deathrow infuence my decisions. i really need to get the numbers down here to a more managable level but geez it is hard when knowing the consequences of just saying no. too many in need, too few to help…isn’t that the way it is with all good endeavors?

i would like a world with people standing around and lining up to help and having to wait til someone who needs assistence can actually be found. wouldn’t that be nice? we could play cards, or do crafts, or gossip about everyone else while we were standing around just waiting. ok, that sounds boring.

time to get moving and face the phone at work which is only slightly less irritating than answering the phone around here.

    Hi, Carol,

    Sorry that your ankle is still giving you problems. Do take care of yourself !

    I don’t know if you got my e-mails about Sweet Pea ( I sent a couple from Australia and one earlier this week.)

    Anyway, the reason for my e-mails was to enquire about adopting Sweet Pea. Is she anythng like Pippa? Would she benefit from living with Michael, Milo and me here in Vancouver?

    Do look after yourself, Carol

    All the best,

    Johanna

    I thought Sweet Pea would be perfect for you, she is so cute & sweet, when she wags that crooked tail of hers or pops her head up over the coffe table to peek at you, it melts my heart…

  • Johanna says

    Thanks so much, Mo

    Do you know anything about her? Is she the same size as Pippa? Also, I can’t remember how old she is or what medical problems she has. (not that the medical problems matter to me. I’d just like to know..so would my long suffering vet.) Also,is she quiet? The reason that I ask is that both Michael and Milo are barkers and my poor neighbours don’t need another one.

    Cheers,

    Johanna

    sweet pea is VERY LOUD johanna…you aren’t going to be able to keep her a secret, everyone is going to know she is there.

  • Johanna says

    Oh dear !! That is not good news !! What causes her to bark? Or is it everything?

    I was hoping for a dear little gentle Pippa who barked ever so softly.

    Carol, do you have any little quiet dogs who need a good home?

  • Carol says

    sweet pea barks (loudly sqawks like a dying duck with throat disease) when she is left alone…chicklet is usually quiet unless she is chasing a cat. and the two little yorkies are very quiet, but trisha is palliative. caro is a little doll and very good with other dogs.

    Poor little Trisha!! How long does she have? It will be very hard on Caro when she passes away. Aren’t they sisters? Have they always been together?

    If little Trisha only has a short time,then you might not want to move her at this late stage. Therefore if you thought it best, I could wait and take Caro and make a big fuss of her.

    Do you think they would get on with Michael and Milo?

    I could come and meet them on Sunday if you think it would be a good idea.

    Thanks,

    Johanna

    well i think you taking caro is a great idea when trish passes (i think he should be with her when she goes so he knows)…except, caro is a boy and i think you want another female, altho we could just tell milo and michael that caro is a girl. maybe they won’t figure it out.
