Yay for employment!

I feel like I’ve become one of those bloggers that starts every post off with an apology. Sorry that I haven’t been around much and even sorrier that I haven’t been commenting on your posts. My birthday weekend threw me. And now I am no longer using this blog as procrastination for school work, I am less motivated to write. However, hopefully we’ll be back in business soon.

Anyway, onto better things- I got a job!! This will be my second job and I think I’m going to keep an eye out for a third… although I think my hours at the vet clinic will pick up (fingers crossed).

My interview was done at my new boss’ house whilst Jersey Shore played in the background. I had to tune it out but kept getting distracted by the TV! My new boss seems really lovely and we chatted for ages. I want to be friends with her in real life!!

I am working for a pet sitting company. They do daily visits and walking and even house-sitting. I will be able to pick and choose which jobs fit in around my vet clinic work which is the best part of the deal. I also had to obtain an Australian Business Number because I will be working on a sub-contractor basis so I feel like I am a business woman and I need to go and buy a pant-suit or something similar.

I haven’t been sent any jobs yet but I will be SO nervous for my first meet-and-greet with the pet and their owners!

Thanks to all of you for your prayers and best wishes! I wanted/needed this job so badly and am completely grateful and happy to have it.
