D: I'm so sorry to hear that Wallaby! I read your thread religiously even if I don't reply to it (creepy stalkerish huh?) and it sounds like you've had a not-fun week or two :(

I guess the up side to all of this is that Kenzie DOES have that prospective home, and Sour is generating a little bit of interest too. I suppose this is a sign that I really am supposed to give them up.

Today has been hard on both you and Emily... man.

I was once let go, and it made me cry like crazy (forced to quit or be fired) but that was over 3 years ago. I couldn't be happier. I also had just gotten Sky at the time.

Things will work out, I promise!

That's pretty much how things went down for me too. My boss called and explained to me that they needed to let go 5 employees because they just don't need as many people as they once did (I guess we're just too efficient >.>) and that I was one of them. Apparently I hadn't done anything to warrant firing, but I was picked because I had the most inflexible schedule between highschool and college, and I could to either be fired for something totally stupid or to just quit myself, which, according to my boss, might look better on my resume? Whatever.

I'm pretty down about it. I went to visit Kenzie and cried a lot (sweet girl let me <3. Sour would have ripped my face off) but I felt a little better after that. Its not like theres a whole lot I can do about it, I guess.

I'm mostly upset that I'm not going to be able to get the hernia surgery and floating for Kenzie that I had scheduled for next week since it will affect her sellability. Maybe I'll be able to find a fast food job or something and still be able to get those for her. The only problem with job finding though is, again, my schedule. With the schedule I can work, I'd be forced to work nights which means pretty much zero sleep for me. And with my lovely health, that's really just not a good idea.

Oh Endiku, I am so sorry to hear that things have taken this turn for you! I really wish that the good people out there got what they really deserve...Judging by the kind of person you seem to be on this forum, you deserve a lot better than what you've been dealt!
I really truly hope things work out for you and get better in the very near future!

Thank you SweetBreeze. Yes, its unfortunate, and I'm starting wonder if I'm even capable of having a normal 'nothing big happened' month, but I guess it keeps me on my toes! LOL.

I spent yesterday evening applying for jobs in person in hopes of meeting a manager or two, but nothing yet. I plan to go back out this evening though.

I'm going to miss this little bugger so much when she finds a home. I started teaching her how to side pass over a ground pole for the first time today, and no joke- she got it in less than 5 minutes. Whether or not she remembers tomorrow, I don't know, but yay! She was already yielding her shoulder and hindquarters beautifully so I was like "hey, why not?" and after just a couple of 'wiggles' forward and coaching her by moving her butt, then her shoulder, then her butt again, she was moving away from my hand perfectly sideways. Such a smart girl.

I had a new farrier come today too, and I'm in LOVE with her already. Kenzie has always been a little iffy with her back legs being picked or trims, and I figured she was just being a butt so I reprimanded her. Turns out, the way the other farrier was trimming her was making it harder for her to balance on three legs with one hoisted in the air, so the farrier showed me how to hold her leg at a certain angle to help her out, and voila- no more fidgeting/jerking her leg around. Wow, I feel bad now...heh.

Wow...things might not always seem great but there's obviously someone looking out for the girls and I.

First- I got a call this morning from a driving academy interested full leasing Sour from me. They said their only possible apprehension was her age since she's only 5 and a half, but they saw her ad video (of me driving her through obstacles, on a trail, in an arena...lunging, ground driving, etc) and they're impressed with her. They're looking for a new mini to use for driving lessons for the more advanced beginners, to replace their arthritic 26 year old mini. Anyways, they're coming to have someone test her out on Monday, and if they like her we'll discuss things.

If they like her, I can still own her, and she can do what she loves. Work. No cuddly kissy little kids and no sitting in a pasture. Sounds great to me!

And then with Kenzie, I had two different people approach me separately and offer to help me out with her still getting her teeth floated, so it looks like that's still going to be done. My friend offered to trailer her so I don't have to pay the farm call fee, and she's scheduled for a float and to have that tooth pulled (I KNOW its rotten now, it has changed colors sadly...) on Friday. Then the lady interested in her is hoping to come see her Sunday with her trainer.

Fingers crossed. Its all moving so fast, but I'm trying to be happy that both of my girls have such a good chance at fantastic homes :)

I had an interview for Buffalo Wild Wings (yeah...I know. Its a job though...haha) two days ago and they seemed to like me but I haven't heard back from them. I'm going to bug them tomorrow though, if I don't hear from them today. Other than that though everything has been a no-go so far.
