Gus has finished all his meds and is back to normal. We will assume that is a good thing.
DH has decided that Gus has become my dog. DH was Gus's favorite person. Well, I am the one to walk him, feed him and give him attention at night, what do you expect?

When Gus was under for the x-rays, they clipped his toenails for me! No charge. Any ideas what I can drop off at the vets office to say thanks for an unexpected and much appreciated service?
Couple dozen eggs? 🤷🏼‍♀️
(I don’t know whether you have chickens.)

I think I am going to pick up a gift card for the grocery store - then they can pick whatever treat they want. The vet knows that there is no way to clip Gus's nails without sedation, so I am sure that is why they did it. I just really appreciated it and that they got him in to see the vet so quilckly - I want to let them know that.

Vets get inundated with sweet treats. A healthy snack is usually appreciated. Beer/wine is not inappropriate

Well, I was just offered a position. Woo Hoo! I got a job!
Trouble is, I interviewed for another position last week that I think I would much rather have.

Timeline:
October 21 - interview for Position A. Good job, doing something different, office work. Excited for the possiblitly. Told 1 month before the new person would start.
November 1 - interview for Position B. Great job, same field as I have worked for 30 years. 2 weeks before I will know if I got the job or not. 2 weeks is Nov 14.
November 7 - offered Position A. I can pick a start date of Nov 21 or Dec 5th.

Argh!!!

Now I get to call Position B and see if I even had a chance at the job and if they can expedite the hiring process at all ...

Position A would be learn new things, a lot of record keeping. forms to fill out, filing, small office lots of work to do.
Position B would be more money, but they both are state jobs, so same benefits (I think).

Or you could just accept the offer for Position A with the Dec 5th start date and then wait to see if Position B comes through or not. You don't have to call about Position B, just wait and see, what is best will happen.

Congrats on the job offer and good luck on the second one :)

Congrats on the job!! Whichever one you get.

Did you really enjoy what you were doing, making job B more desirable? If so, I'd consider asking how applications were looking....to help you decide. Agree you could say Dec and decline if B comes thru. It's hard to not take a job when you've been looking!!

We're excited for you and...waiting:pop

I got the offer for Position B this morning! So excited!

I did call yesterday to see if I was even being considered and she said she was working on the offer to me, she was trying to get it expedited through the superiors and I should have it this morning. Yay! the offer is quite a bit more per hour and really, the work is what I have enjoyed doing for the last 20+ years. It is a conditional offer - they need to do a background check on me - no worries there.

I have a job!! yes!
