A Change

I really cannot believe how long it has been since my last post! But somewhat understandable.

The past year has brought a great many changes my way. New experiences, heartbreak, confusion, frustration, complete joy, but mainly a new appreciation for friends and family.

Career wise nothing much has changed. I still work as a Veterinary Assistant, and I also still volunteer at a Therapeutic Riding Center some 40 minutes away. But some new experiences such as my most recent employment at the Brown County Dragway and my brand new certification as a Lifeguard keep me well out of trouble. So needless to say, my weekly schedule is intense once you add my multiple jobs, multiple volunteering days, and work at home.

One of the biggest changes recently is in our family life. Only two days ago, my dad was laid off from his 20 something job as a Software Engineer. The word to describe my feelings right now is shocked. I really just feel helpless. I don't really know how to help, or even what to say. What this will mean for my family and I, I don't know. What I do know, is that I am determined to make the best of it. I pray it brings our family closer than ever, and that we will experience all new adventures that will help mold us into the best we can be.

Even in my most stressful and hectic days that just make me want to break down into tears, there are still so many things that make me feel so much joy.

One of my greatest source of happiness is my newest pet addition; a little kitten that someone brought into my workplace. They told us the story about how they discovered three little kittens nursing on their dead mother who had been hit by a car on the side of the road. A truly sad story yes, but the happiness this little kitten has brought me is worth the lack of sleep and the hours spent caring for him. There's something about walking into the room and a little fuzzy kitten is there at the door of his carrier meowing to be held. Now that I sound like a complete crazy cat lady... I'll stop now.
