ok...two more days til the open house...i have a couple of things left to do in the house...like the final de-junking of my room and my bathroom..and a few more shop tidy ups. the group of staff trial shift potentials were a really big help!
helga, laura and mama duck and the appleman have gotten the weeding and the lawn mowing done so the two mini work parties today and tomorrow can finish off the outside clean ups..it actually looks like we might be ready without me having to pull all nighters again!
we have 5 more vets runs today and tomorrow..sweetie's spay, trevors xray, merry's skin check, mini-me's dressing change and mandy's cardiac check..i am thinking her little ticking heart is finally wearing out.
i am still struggling with my sore knee...next week when the open house is over, i will rest it for sure!
oh and today i HAVE to stop in at the accountants and sign my income tax return..and i HAVE to drop off the property taxes thingy (if i can find it) to city hall too.
right now we are totally broke again...(sigh..we did not win the petfinder challenge) so i am hoping our visitors really like what we do and want to support us to help us continue. jenn told me yesterday the requests for admissions are starting to get busy again. i said no one can get in here now...too full...too broke...it is an automatic no to everyone, no matter how desperate...we have nothing but good intentions to offer any of them and they will need far more from us than that. as far as i can remember there is only one out there already approved that i said could come in after the open house. he is a nasty cat..he is attacking everyone in his house and has done so for years. but now there is a toddler involved and he is far too dangerous to continue to live there. we said yes to him weeks ago if they could wait until after the open house when i would have some time to settle him here. we said yes because we felt for his family who really have tried to deal with him...and still do really love him despite his nasty behavior....his story reminds me of frodo...a good cat who gets pissed over something trivial and then gets even.
it has taken me years of servitude to make frodo happy..i wonder how long this fuzzy freak show will take?
i can't remember his name right now but i am sure once he gets here...we all will know it well.
