So, I started my new job yesterday. I am so excited about having a desk, lol. I have my own L-shaped desk. I’ve never had a job where I’ve had my own desk before. So yesterday after my first day, I b-lined it to staples and bought out everything pink and black…yes, my desk will have a theme.
So mostly today and yesterday was spent watching training videos and talking to my co-workers. All of them seem very nice. I was feeling very blessed today working…until I realized the pay cut difference. I’m going from make $24.50 an hour to $17.30…a major pay difference. But I have to look at it like this too…I am getting health insurance, and access to our wellness center. It’s just going to be very tight with us trying to pay off some bills. But once we get some bills paid off it won’t be so tight. We are just going to have to watch money for the next couple of months.
Also I thought even when I was off from work I would get up pretty early. Like 7 or 8, but now I have to get up at 6am in order to get dogs fed and myself ready for work. These past two days I have been dead dog tired. So I didn’t put into account that I would have to get used to getting up so early and actually going into a job.
Which means I may have to take a break in showing dogs. I will have to focus just on Capone and Furi and maybe try to get Presco’s CD title another time. I am showing him and Capone this week at a cluster of dog shows. From today’s training sessions with both dogs, we are going just for practice apparently. Both boys seem distracted and just not giving me the time of day. Tomorrow night we have Obedience run throughs at the training center so we will see how Presco does with that. But I’m not expecting a lot from them this weekend.
So this week, I’m trying to train dogs for a show, and get used to going back to work, training for new job, and turn in my old job equipment among other thing. Needless to say I’m definitely going to need my coffee this week….
