Today I had to make the decision to put my ferret Abigail to sleep.
I noticed last week she seemed a little lethargic, her hair seemed thinner……I thought her Desolorin implant was wearing off and she might need another. Shane and I had discussed the feasibility of getting her another one at her age (they cost $200).
I wish we could have gone to the regular vet, she is a specialist in ferrets.
But Abby wasn’t going to make it until tomorrow.
Shane & I have lost 2 pets in the last month.

Today is my last day

As the office drone.

And I couldn’t be happier.

Officially I had told the boss I didn’t even want to drive anymore, figuring it would be too awkward and/or he wouldn’t want me anymore after I’m leaving him to deal with his own mess.

Needless to say he’s asked me to take some time to reconsider that aspect. Dependable drivers are hard to come by (not bragging) and I was going to miss the money/tips.

However, being in the service industry is a shithole job and I feel bad for anyone who has to do it. I’ve bar-tended, served food and was a phone CSR…….and people are totally turning into huge entitled douchebags.

Driving party buses does mean I’m still interacting with the (drunk) public…….but it’s just not the same thing.

I can totally get work done around this house now.

Dreams man

I have had a reoccurring yet differently themed dream recently.

I keep finding areas of my house I didn’t know existed…….primarily old sun rooms.

Once it was down an old dark hallway. This last time it was behind an old funky wall that I was peeling the layers of wallpaper off of.

Obviously I need a sun room.

I’m quitting one of my jobs

I gave my boss notice a week ago. 

I’m not here to badmouth him, however he is the main reason I can no longer do this job. I only work 20 hours a week as that is all they can currently afford (in the ‘office’ at my house).

They were audited by the DOT last year and it was a fucking fiasco. I left the office for almost 2 months (because no money was coming in) and he practically ignored emails/phone calls. No transparency to the clients, serious procrastination…..it made it to the gott damned NEWS that we were ‘screwing over’ customers.

SO embarrassing.

It took 3 months to get their license back…..but it’s still a clusterfuck. No lessons were learned. I’m still getting screamed at by Bridezillas because the company cannot get it’s shit together.

Telling my boss I couldn’t do it anymore was like breaking up with a guy, or asking for a divorce. I’ve been with them for 4.5 years, have loved my job and I really care about him and his little family. However things are not getting better. I put in my 20 hours and then some. I’m so tired of being yelled at by unhappy people, it’s seriously stressing me out.

I was waffling about my decision up until about 10 minutes ago.

All it took was one crazy bitch getting angry at me because the bus she inquired about over 2 weeks ago is now gone.

Yes ma’am, you said you wanted to get that bus on (insert date here) for (incorrect price)? Let me just make sure you know it’s really ($300 more) and if you’re still interested please let me know when the best time to call you is?

(no response)

She sent me an email today asking me to call her today.

But this is MY fault it’s gone now?

Yeah…….it’s a good thing I’m leaving.

Now I’m paranoid about money.

This is what my last 2 weeks have felt like as I attempt to get the house ready for Shane to move in.

I haven’t seen what everyone has been up to here all week.

One of my favorite bits.

Solar Sponge Efficiently Makes Steam :

Generating steam is enormously useful. Much of the world’s energy actually comes from steam—coal power plants heat up water to produce water vapor, which turns turbines to generate electricity. A new technology creates steam by harnessing solar energy, using a relatively cheap sponge-like material, and it does it with greater efficiency that ever previously achieved, according to a study published in the journal Nature Communications

The researchers don’t claim the device could be used to create electricity, at least not yet. But it could relatively easily be scaled up to make fresh water out of salt water via distillation, for example, or to sterilize medical or food-processing equipment in areas of the world where electricity is hard to come by, said MIT researcher Hadi Ghasemi in a statement.

This Genius Machine Feeds Stray Dogs In Exchange For Recycled Bottles

unconsumption:

One innovative company has created a vending machine that’s dispensing help for both the environment and our furry friends.

The Turkish company Pugedon recently introduced a vending machine in Istanbul that releases food and water for the city’s stray dogs in exchange for recycled plastic bottles, Big Think reported. Once someone deposits their bottle at the top, food is released at the bottom. The Pugedon Smart Recycling Boxes operate at no charge to the city, and the recycled bottles cover the cost of the food.

The simple machine will provide a steady source of sustenance to the animals, who often rely on the area’s residents to feed them. It’s also bringing some positive change to a place where the fate of stray animals has not always been a happy one.

It’s pulling me in.

I made a luscious from scratch German chocolate cake for Shane’s birthday.

I can hear the siren song. I’ve eaten 2.5 pieces in the last couple days.

I gave away a quarter of it.

The last quarter is sucking me in.
