Taking a day off

I asked the sister of my client to take over for a day at the house sitting job. They just told me that they are going to be gone at least another week. I'm so tired of running out there twice a day. It takes about an hour round trip to do the job and only about ten minutes to take care of the... Sign in to see full entry.

I don't bounce.

I recently toke on a pet sitting job for a friend who doesn't know how long she is going to be gone. I go to her house twice a day and love her animals so much that it's a fun job to do. The problem is this winter has been a little tougher then usual. Her house is on a hill. The driveway is on the... Sign in to see full entry.

R.I.P. Dear friend.

Yesterday morning a client called to tell me that they had put my dear friend Molly to sleep. She was the sweetest black lab. I met her when she was a little thing at the animal hospital I worked at. Then after I had to leave my job, they asked me to be her pet sitter when they were gone. Staying... Sign in to see full entry.

60 trips

I am thankful for my house sitting jobs. I have nice clients, both the animals and the people that they own. But some of my jobs are kinda a pain. I just found out that I am going to have a job for at least a month. The main problem is that this lady doesn't want me to stay at her house. She wants... Sign in to see full entry.

Rough Year For Everyone

It has been a rough year for everyone and my business is feeling it. I had a full calendar at the beginning of the year and over half of the dates have cancelled. Thankfully not because they are unhappy with me but because of health problems and financial issues. I am glad that I am not depending... Sign in to see full entry.

Not working much

Right now I'm not working as much as I was. I finally got my disability and so I'm not as desperate as I was. I'm enjoying my summer and I must say that doing nothing isn't all that bad. I have a few regulars that I take care of but right now I'm not promoting myself like I was. Sign in to see full entry.

I have filed for disability. When I went to the doctor today he had a file full of paper work to fill out. It hit me then that I'm really doing this. My days of independence are over. My days of being able to work hard and make my future what I want it to be are over. It's scary and heart breaking.... Sign in to see full entry.

Two weeks at my job that I have to drive 20 miles round trip is just too long. I'm glad that I have that one finished. I have a job for spring break. I will stay there full time and hopefully get a lot of writing done. I have a hard time staying away from my grandson that long though. I have my jobs... Sign in to see full entry.

charges go up

I had someone call me to pet sit for her the last week or Dec through the first week of Jan. So I wrote her in. I then made arrangements to travel out to her house to meet her and see what I would need to do. The day I was due to go out was one of those days when everything was going wrong some way....
