[JessFinds] New Year. New Job.

I start a new job tomorrow!

Actually, I will be working in education so I need to be fingerprinted and stared at by police officers. Then I get to start the new job.

I looked for work for TWELVE months. During those 12 months, 4 positions became available in my field. I applied for all 4, interviewed for 3 and somehow got 1. Yay!

Today, I am trying to do all the things I have not done in the last 12 months. In other words, setting myself up for epic failure. I swept and vaccumed the floor. Hey, it is something.

In other news, my sweet, darling kitty cat is dying of renal failure. He is like a clock winding down. Has stopped eating, drinking, going to the litter box. Just curls up like a meatloaf and stares off in to space. If he shows any sign of being in pain I am going to get him to a vet asap to have him put down. In the meantime, I just hope he can die peacefully at home. I would rather spare him the stress of a vet visit - that cat hates being shoved in a carrier and taken to the vet!

Life is going to be so strange without Sid. He has been "my cat" for twelve years.

Ed - My first day was great. They seem like a fantastic group of people to work for and with. Unfortunately, that morning, my dear Sid died.

Good luck tomorrow! As for dear Sid. If it comes to having to take him to a vet, the vet can give you something to help him stay calm for the ride. With all animals I have ever put down, I have made sure to do that because I want their last moments to be peaceful. Prayers for Sid and his mommy.
