What I am Doing This Week: Resolving…Happy New Year!

Thursday, December 31st, 2009

This week I am regrouping for the New Year!  I love the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day.  I love having the kids home on break.  I tend to obsess about goals, which has always been a kind of big thing for me.  I look back and look forward.  2009 was one of the best, most emotional, most difficult, most rewarding years of my career.  I must have forgotten to tell 2009 that I like boring.

Here you go, 2010.  This is an example of what I like.  Angela’s new Shaggy Puppy needs a routine exam.  Your next patient is the same.  So is the next.  So is the next.  I don’t need drama!  I don’t need excitement!  I have my veterinary friends and journals for that.  My own life, I want it boring.  Always.  K, thanks.

This week the veterinary team has kicked…they have been EXTRAORDINARY!!  haha  That’s more professional, huh?  They always are great, but in a difficult/busy/challenging week, I notice it more, I guess.  Our team is amazing.  Their love for pets, even when they KNOW they will get their hearts broken, their dedication and their amazing skill is really awesome to be around.  You guys rock.  Here’s to an amazing, but hopefully less eventful 2010!!

I got the book “Am I Boring My Dog?” by Dr. Edie Jarolim for Mom for Christmas.  I am going to have to get my own copy (to me, from me, Happy Valentine’s Day!) because Mom is hogging hers!  It is geared toward new pet owners, but you need it too!  And also, you will love her website and blog, Will My Dog Hate Me?

This is a sort of random place to put such awesome links, don’t you think?  I think my site needs a central location for cool links.  Coming soon…
