Here’s what happened in my life over the past week:
I’ve spent all week being a palliative care nurse to my geriatric guinea pig Squeaky. He was really sick on Monday, and I was certain he was going to die that day. Except he didn’t. Little man was never much of a cuddler before, but he became a total cuddlebug, I think for the warmth. Finally this morning he passed away in my arms to go join his best friend Zippy at the rainbow bridge. I’ve already came to terms with the fact that he was dying, and now I mostly feel a sense of relief that he died very peacefully and hedoesn’t have to fight any more.
I had put together a spreadsheet with supporting data from Google Maps to demonstrate to the employer’s system for calculating travel time wasn’t working. I was assured by the director that this did not represent reality (!) and I had neglected to include the many patient visits for which I had been overpaid (she pulled this straight out of her ass). I contemplated terminating my contract with them, but I’m going to hold off on that since I don’t have any alternatives identified.
I was checking my blog notifications the other night at work, and saw that some yucky naked dude had followed my blog. I mentioned this to my coworker/friend, who is a bit internet naïve. He asked what I meant, and I had to show him and explain the dick pic phenomenon. I can’t imagine that ever in the history of random dick pic-ing has it been successful even once.
I’ve been too preoccupied with guinea pig care to even try to do much writing. However, I did finally get around to writing a piece to submit to Alt Minds, a mental health literary magazine I heard about from Karen at Blue Sky Days 365.
This week on the Best Life Collaborative:
Using WordPress.org is quite the learning curve. After some wrestling with it, there are now like buttons and social share buttons on the BLC posts.
How has your week been?
