The Beach Again!

Seems that the husband, and I are officially "Beach Bums". We just can't get enough of the gorgeous weather this year. I think it also has something to do with the fact that soon we will be locked up in the house for the winter. Well I hope it isn't as bad as it sounds.

We went to the beach last Thursday, and then on Sunday. Sunday's trip was a treat for my daughter Christie who recently got a new job. We had a great time, and a lot of laughs.

She is training to be a vet's assistant on site. She has been working like a dog all week. 10-12 hours a day. The first day the poor kid was thrown into surgeries right when she walked in the door. She knew that she would be doing that, but not quite that quick. Once she realized how helpful, and responsible she needed to be she immediately started liking it. She started learning about the organs and such. She is very interested, and asks the vet many questions. He likes that. He also likes that she can control the cats, and helps to calm them down.

I don't think that legally she was supposed to be thrown into a position like that, but I'm not sure of the law just yet. The hourly pay sucks for now, but she loves the job, and her anxiety is low... thats key. The vet likes her a lot, and she likes him as well. She said that he treats animals very well, and that he really does care. She works such long hours because he never turns an animal away, and so far she doesn't seem to mind. He lives above the office, with his wife, and baby. Hopefully this will work out for my kiddo. She really is a smart cookie, loves animals, and needs a good job. I never imagined her doing this type of work, but sure am proud that she is. She really has interesting conversations now. It is very nice to see her so happy.

I've gotta get working on changing this blog soon,because it is boring the hell out of me! Hopefully I will find the time if I stop going to the beach.

Just finished watching/crying through most of the tribute on TV this morning. It still feels so fresh in our hearts.

My heart goes out to all of you that have been touched by this tragedy.

Oh Crikey!

Steve Irwin

I think that anyone that has ever watched his show, knew just where his head was at. He was crazy... yes. He was a risk taker... yes. He was also a great teacher concerning all kinds of animals.

What a sad way to die~ You didn't deserve it~ I hope that your children carry on your family tradition in animal conservation, and education. My best wishes to Terry, Bindi, and baby Bob.

Sleep well Steve Irwin... you will be missed!
