more is not always merrier...and bigger is not always better...

so many things for me to have to learn on this rescue road.
three more shifts...then almost a couple of weeks vacation..yay!
i have so much stuff i have to catch up on...the accountants have been trying to grab me for more than a month...there are at least 4 or 5 surgeries booked over the next 2 weeks....everywhere needs a total dejunking, esp. the shop... oh...and some wall scrubbing..both the van and my car need a total strip/wash down, plus our big gala is in there somewhere too.
the winter clean up and set up can wait til the end of october when i have another week off...i always try to get that week around halloween off if i can so the hearing animals have someone around 24 hrs a day when folks are unpredictably setting fireworks off.
financially this has been one of our toughest years...the numbers of animals we have helped is way up as is the cost of medical care. our staffing needs and associated costs are totally nutz. so part of my job over the next couple of months is to figure out what we need to have a less stressful time of it all next year and come up with a plan. one of the things that we absolutely must do is winterize the big dog/sun room....we lost a lot of heat out of there last winter.
the security company is coming on saturday to help me figure out a decent security plan...the problem is i am a complete and total sucker for 2 things...animals and sales people which is why my 20 thousand dollar sticker priced car cost me 30 thousand dollars in the end....huh??? how the hell did that happen????
so if any hard headed, techno savy business folks have nothing to do on saturday at 11 am...i would really appreciate a realistic watch our back money guard keeping me from signing away the farm in an attempt to keep everyone safe.
know your limits and stay within it...is anyone able to help me with this on saturday morning???
