it wasn't great but i guess considering we did sort of ok...janice and laura took turns checking on the house animals every hour or so while still trying to care for the ones in their areas.. i rushed home at lunchtime and did a quick basic sweep thru with janice and laura's help. so by just after 2 when i absolutely had to get back to work...everyone had access to clean, dry beds, clean floors, water and dry food.
did they suffer today because of my unpreparedness?......sadly i think that they did. no one got any canned food except the diabetics, esther and the frail dogs in the mp room...no one got their medications, except the diabetics, not even their pain pills, the kidney cats did not get their souped up food, no one got field runs, baths, cuddles or pets. esther did not get lifted to her feet every hour, she was stuck in one spot between morning, lunchtime and my homecoming.
anyway..i am home now, i have done the canned feeding and meds..the kidney cats have had their soupy food and i will apologise and cuddle and pet tonight while pushing the laundry thru.
i am really sorry. this won't happen again..i will write a hiring ad and get it up on craigs list tonight so i can hopefully train someone when i have my next week off (the third week in august.)
jeezus.... this whole entire week has just absolutely totally sucked!
hey...can someone look on craigs list and see if they see the ad? i have no idea how to look. the email confirms it is posted but i don't see it on there???
