5/26/17 ftf, wren

Yesterday was a bit turned around, after starting the day off by leaving Becca and Elbee at the vet.  They don’t like being left, although it was a little better because they were there together.  Becca’s procedure was pretty easy, and she was feeling fine when I picked them up in the late afternoon.  Elbee’s procedure was more involved.  She ended up having a tooth pulled, and she was unhappy and crying all evening.  She is a stoic soul, so it worried me a lot to hear her crying, poor girl.  Now there’s a few days’ wait until both of their biopsy results come in.  The bill was over $1500, so I need to get busy and submit to the insurance so I can get some of it back!

My dental visit was the best ever.  The dentist has a new junior assistant who is very good at keeping everyone on time.  I waited only five minutes, then she took my x-rays and started herding the dentist and hygienist in to see me.  The whole thing took just 30 minutes, which is shockingly fast for this dentist.  The hygienist, who I’ve known for a long time, told me that over the winter he had a head-on auto collision, and then hit deer with his car on two separate occasions.  Ye gods!  At this point, I”d be ready to give up driving altogether.

Today will be another different sort of day at work.  I’ve scheduled four second interviews and am going to sit in on all of them, so that will take up much of the day.  I’ll try to accomplish a thing or two in between.  Then it’s off for my own long weekend!

Yesterday was unusual in that I accomplished almost no “paperwork.”  I had to keep reminding myself that I was, nevertheless, still getting things done.

I’m going in to work a bit late today, because I have to take Becca and Elbee to the vet.  Becca is having the growth on her eye removed.  The vet says it’s most likely benign, but he will be doing a biopsy.  Elbee is having a bit of tissue from her gum removed and also biopsied, as there’s some unusual redness right near the site of her radiation treatments.  I’m also leaving early for a dental visit.  In between, I’m aiming to get five things done.

This has been a strange year for me.  I never am one to feel “where did the year go?” much, except for this year.  It feels as if four months just vanished into surgeries and radiation treatments, and I am continually surprised that it is almost summer.

The former head of the CIA gave some pretty damning testimony about the Trump-Russia connection, although he stopped short of naming names or using the word “collusion.”  There is plenty of evidence to begin impeachment proceedings, but the Republicans in congress are not acting.  How long can they let this go on?  It’s already past all reasonableness.

Today is mostly filled with interviews and meetings.  It should be fairly pleasant if I can let go of worrying about getting things done. I am also leaving work early to take the girls to the vet.  Becca has a weird growth in her eye (!), and Elbee is due for her annual shots and check up.

No matter how much sleep I get, it doesn’t seem to be enough these days, and I am always waking up tired.  I feel strongly inclined to take a day off just to sleep!

It was a gorgeous Spring weekend, and we went to a wonderful musical show on Saturday night.  I’d rather sleep some more this morning, which I suppose is how many people feel on Monday.  The boss should be occupied most of the day, which will be good for productivity.

Yesterday, the boss actually said to me, “Thank you for everything that you do.  I rely on you a lot and really appreciate you.”  I nearly fell over with shock.   This is by far the nicest thing he has ever said to me.  Have no idea what brought that on.

I am cautiously happy about the special counsel who has been appointed to get to the bottom of the Trump-Russia connection.  Everything that I’ve read agrees that Robert Mueller is an excellent person for the job.  Things have been unraveling very quickly of late.

What was I thinking when I scheduled an applicant interview for 7 am today?  That is normally my quiet time at the office.  I’m regretting it now, but it’s not the end of the world.  After the interview is over, it should be a quiet day, as the boss is busy with patients.
