Working with Animals

I guess I should clarify now that I’m back on track. Around the beginning of March my two bosses called all of the employees in (all 3 of us) and said that the business was doing shitty. They might have to shut down.
Then they had a private meeting with each of us.
My meeting consisted of me being told that because I was Admin, I was a luxury and didn’t bring any money in.
*Even though I billed all of the clients. And made sure the bills were paid. And rounded up slow-paying clients.*
So because I didn’t technically put in any “billable” time.
I either had to accept the offer of working one to two days a week (NOT POSSIBLE) or I had to find a new job.
So I found a new job.
And I guess I shouldn’t describe it as an animal shelter because technically we don’t have a shelter. But we work with animals and help people pay emergency vet bills and try to keep animals out of the circus, rodeo, etc. That’s probably all I ought to say about it because we all know what happened when I was too forthcoming with job info on my blog.
Now I work with 4 dogs, which is pretty nice. I get to take breaks to pet and walk dogs instead of writing invoices. I can get used to this! I even got to bring the pugs to work with me already. That ended up being a bit much as the dogs were on sensory overload from smelling so many smells from other dogs. Or maybe it’s because Winston peed on 5 things. Either way, I’m glad there’s a carpet cleaner here.

I got a new job, PHEW TO THE MAX

Hey dudes. FEAR NOT, for a I got a new job. Let us all rejoice. I got a job with an animal shelter, so I get to work with dogs in the office. Pretty sweet.
I may get to bring my dogs to work every few days or so, but first we must test to see if they get along with the other office dogs. Which might not go so well since Zelda doesn’t like big dogs all that much.
BUT, at least I got a new job. That I am happy about.
Now I have to quit the current almost laid off job. Bleh!

Well, I got partially laid off

That’s right, I am going to be half laid off in two weeks. Which means I have two weeks to find either another part time job, or I need to find a full time job.
At first I wanted to puke, now I think it might be a really good opportunity to pursue something else. Though I might have an interview with another design firm. Which would probably be the same. But I will hopefully find something with a boss that’s a little less anal. That would be nice.
How are all of you? I’m sorry I’m not back to 100% blogging, but the stress of all of this layoff stuff has made my stomach and digestive system a war-zone, and indigestion and bad poops don’t make me want to blog! Wait, poop sort of does, but I don’t really want you to know the consistency of my poop, and I doubt you want to know that much about my life!
I’ve got a few prospects though, so I’m excited, one of which is an animal shelter. Don’t worry, it’s not the one that jerked me around last year. Oh brother, thank goodness it’s not that one.
Though I will say that one nonprofit called me “overqualified.” But they still want to interview me, which is good.
I still feel pretty sick about all of this. It’s a tough thing, a layoff, and I’m not even fully laid off. However, I was told I am the least valuable because I don’t bring in any billable time, which is pretty insulting. Yes, I love being the office bitch, can I please do the dishes every week?! AWESOME.
Hopefully I get to do something more meaningful, and hopefully someone wants to pay me full time for it.
I hope none of you have been laid off. God it’s so awful. Even Steve got laid off. These are some seriously rough times dudes.
