School shots and a new job

Jake got his school shots today...all 5 of them. He was very brave, much braver than I would have been. We went to the store afterwards so he could pick out a new toy. He chose an Etch-a-Sketch which suits him perfectly as he loves to write and draw.

I started my new part-time job this weekend cleaning kennels at the vet clinic. There are 15 kennels where owners can board their dogs while they're gone for the weekend, on vacation, etc. They are usually all full. My job is to let each dog outside, scoop poop, scrub the floors, feed and water and let them all back in. I also clean the cat pens and feed the rabbit, birds, fish and newt. So far I am enjoying it. I like the hours - I go in Saturday and Sunday mornings and it takes 2 1/2 hours to get everything done. I plan to leave home at 7:00am and be back home by 10:00am, then still have a full day ahead of me. I like the quiet - I don't have to talk to anybody...except the animals and they don't talk back.
