Soooooo I have a new job...again.

I know last post I told you that I had an awesome new job yada yada. Well I only lasted 4 days and 4 hours. BF called me a job slut. Not gonna lie it might be true. Awesome job was not as advertised. (Insert to good to be true statements here) Basicly they expected me to stand in front of a copy machine for about 8 hours a day, my joints hated that. Also they had some wacky office policies: No talking, if you have a question you have to email your supervisor and wait for them to respond. You had to take your 15min breaks at your exact scheduled time, no personal trashcans, you have to use the community trash in the middle of the office. It was just a super weird place and I couldn't take it.

Here is the timeline...Left crazy office on Monday at 11, had an interview with a chiropractor on Tuesday at 1, got a call back on Thursday at 2, went uniform shopping with the Dr. at 3, started training at 4 and showed up for real work Friday at 7:45.It has been two weeks and I like it still. Upside there is only one other employee (The Dr.) and he and I get along nicely, I make the same amount of money for less hours, and I get free chiropractic care. Downside I have to work Saturdays and I only work about 30 hours a week. All in all it is awesome.

 I have been totally taking advantage of my free chiro visits. Got my first visit on that very first day and man it is amazing. Dr. isn't a normal chiro he does a special style of chiro called NUCCA. BF calls it "crazy hokey voodoo" but it is working for me. I feel amazing. I don't think I have had this many good days in a two week time span ever. So check it out if you are in to that kind of thing.

So that is the big thing that has been going on lately. Other little things have happened of course. I joined a gym. I talked to the trainer and to Dr. and they both say just pay attention to my body and take things slow and I should be fine. I'm excited about that. I have been trying to meet people again.  So far I think I have a gm buddy, she is a little more hard core then me but I think it will be ok. I have a girl date with one of BF's childhood friends current GF. Weird I know but hey I'm down for making friends. We are going to see Snow White and the Huntsman on Sunday. When looking at movie times I realized that a shit ton of good stuff is coming out. I know its a kid thing but I want to see BRAVE the new Pixar movie coming out. Hooray for female heroes and all that woman's power bullshit. No really I'm glad they are showing more strong female role models for girls.

We are still on the hunt for some one to cut that giant tourmaline. At the San Diego Fair the other day we got a nudge in the correct direction. *Crosses fingers* Hopefully we can get in contact with someone who will be willing to cut it.

Lastly, I have been trying to train Argos' a little bit and get him socialized. After the bad showing out at Latitude 33 I was terrified that he would be aggressive toward all dogs. It was recommended that we get him a muzzle. I couldn't do that. We got it and tried it but it wasn't right. So I took him to the dog park on a slow afternoon. There was one lady there with her 2 small dogs. I told her what happened and what was going on. She suggested going to the other end of the park, taking his leash off and letting her rescue dog slowly introduce himself. It worked like a charm. What I have learned is that he gets overwhelmed and needs slow introductions. He is part Norwich terrier and part chihuahua. He loves to run!! Not run away, just run in circles and burn off energy.  
So that is my update for now. When more interesting stuff happens you will hear from me again.

  1. Saw Huntsman - liked it. Snow White was no Wuss! It was kind of dark, but then aren't most CHILDRENS Fairy Tales? Angie & I want to see Brave too - for the same reasons you do!

    GYMN = good. Make new friends= good. Weird-Ass jobs = not so good!
    That first place sounds freakin' scary!!!

    We're having trouble with Charlie's social skills with HUMANS! What a scaredy cat! He's fine at the dog park with other dogs, but somebody new comes to the house? He's SUPER stand-offish. Gotta do something about that.

    BTW, whats a tourmaline?

    Love, Barbara
