Puppy Perks

Hey have I mentioned...that I LOVE my job?!? It is really an incredible feeling. Every day I feel more and more comfortable and blessed to be there. This week I was left "on my own" at my position for the first time and I feel like I did really well! There are certainly still questions and issues that arise that I don't know how to deal with, but I think that's going to happen for a while. There are just so many levels in this new world.  And I'm gradually getting used to my schedule. Each day I'm a little less horrified when my alarm goes off. *haha* I won't lie, though, I've taken a few power naps in my car over my lunch break. :)

You know what the absolute best job perk is? PUPPIES!!! Other offices really should offer this incentive program. ;) For the past week, there have been new puppy exams out the wazoo. It is SO much fun! I get to love on them and play with them, get covered in puppy kisses and love bites and rub their warm little bellies. It is beyond fun. I enjoy the older dogs too, of course, but nothing is better than a wiggly, silly little puppy. Especially one that isn't peeing and pooping on your carpet or destroying your flip-flops. Yes, visiting with these little sweeties is the perfect taste of puppy love, without all the responsibility.

I'm also enjoying getting to be around the cats. Growing up in a house with asthmatics we never had any kitties. And in recent years I've developed allergies of my own so I just haven't been around that many cats. But my allergy meds have kept my symptoms at bay at work, so I get to love on the kitties too. And I have to admit, I just love their little "meow, meow, meeeeeeooooow" talking. It's quite endearing. :)

Hey, check out the awesome scrub tops I get to wear. Could the colors be any better?? Heck, they even match my shower curtain. :)

Today looks like a beautiful day from what I've seen out my window, and I'm determined to get out there and enjoy it. I think I'll take the dogs for a walk and soak up some sunshine. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

I've always been a little bit jealous of the cool scrubs that nurses and vets get to wear. They make some cool ones.

I am SO HAPPY to hear how much you are enjoying your new job. It really sounds like it is a perfect fit for you :)

So glad to hear your enjoying your job! It makes such a difference when you like what you're doing! And I bet if the morning starts off on the wrong foot, going into work surrounded by all those animals makes the day a lot brighter!
