Now, another 2 weeks later am advised all that is going to be passed by and I get to make an apt for orientation.
You'd have thought this would be easier, wouldn't you?
Especially since it isn't a no-kill shelter and they get a lot fewer volunteers. I just hope I can do it since those animals deserve it just as much.
They should do this for job applicants in some cases.

I adopted a cat from our local shelter and had to wait weeks to get the kitty I chose. Animals could not be released until a vet had examined and neutered them. Approximately 400 cats in residence there. I offered to take my kitty to my own vet and have the work done there. Not allowed. Really. 400+ cats in residence...... it does not strike me as being especially humane.

We don't have to here in AZ. I'm glad I don't have to change all those clocks!

Back to work today after nine wonderful days off! I didn't wanna do it!! lol Everyone was glad to see me so I guess I was missed. Sure a lot of new people I don't know though. Gearing up for the holidays. I have decided that it's probably a good thing I do have a job to keep me busy. It would be just way to easy to become a lazy lump! lol

AZ, it's amazing that after you no longer go to work, the person who you are comes out. Sure, I suppose some will be couch potatoes, but most will find their creative side or love of travel or whoever you are, deep inside.

LOL...I wouldn't become a couch potato, really. It was just sooo nice to NOT have to follow that dang schedule and just do what I wanted. I DID get started on sorting out and putting together the tons of genealogy 'stuff' I have and, someday, I might even finish it!

Are we ever finished with genealogy? I found more people yesterday. I'm trying to find a link to my gr-gr grandmother - some relatives that knew her more than my mom. My mom only saw her once that she can remember. Mom was about 6 or so when she went with her grandmother to see her. She died 3 months short of her 100th birthday.

I hit a "brick wall" with my genealogy. I determined I would have to go to England to search the church records in order to find a relative who has the key to everything.

My maiden name is Smith. My nephew tried a few years ago to get more info on the Smith side (Dad was born in England 1901), but he also was not able to get much.
