money is very tight right now.  i’m very thankful to have a job.  i really am.  that being said…

my guywhen i interviewed for this job 3.5 years ago i told my boss(who really is a nice and generous guy…he’s helped me tons) that i HAD to go home everyday at lunch.  cody bear needs his meds.  you all know how fragile his constitution  is.

well, it turns out my boss is moving the business to a way undesirable distance.  he says i can still go home for lunch and he knows i won’t make it back in an hour.

after anxious mapquesting, i’ve learned that the 16 miles per day i drive in two round trips to the office from home will turn into 48 miles a day to and from work.    i will be spending way more money.  the other option is a petsitter to come medicate cody bear everyday, but that is a minimum of $15 per day for just 30 minutes.

you can imagined how depressing this is.

on a lighter note….

on my way home for lunch today i passed by quite a scene:

firefightershow lucky was i to see this while having my 40d in the car!  the kids were screaming and waving their arms.  i have no idea how long it went on but at least before and after the 10 minutes i was there.

later taters!

Oh no, bad news about your job moving! We’re lucky that my wife only works five minutes from the house and is able to come home at lunch time to exercise our pups. I hope you can find a way to make it work for you.

That really is a shame. You may have to go with the pet sitter if that is possible.

The photo of the kids is fab! I’d think that water would be freezing! I’ll bet there was a lot of screaming and laughing!

Maybe CB could come to work? I’m certain a guard dog could be quite handy about the office!
