Feels Like A Monday

It's days like today that make me want to quit my job. If I didn't have plans to buy a house I think I would be making 'how to quit' lists again. But I do want to buy a house so I must be nice to the people and keep doing my work.

The highlight of the day was when a coworker locked his puppy in his office. I had a bark collar in my purse and the puppy was in my office so I put it on her neck. My coworker wanted to make her bark so he shut my door and she didn't bark. He walked to his office and said "I know how to make her bark" and shut her in his office. Then he tried the door knob and it was locked. I couldn't help laughing. The puppy started barking and he was running around trying to find something to wedge in the door to make it open. It only took him a few minutes and he got it open. I don't think the bark collar worked. It was on the lowest setting anyway.

I have to get up early tomorrow to take my poodle to the vet and then to get my blood drawn so that my health insurance rates won't go up. I really really hate that policy. If I give them my blood they won't raise my rates. If I don't, I have to pay more. There's another reason why I want to quit my job.

Oh well, one day at a time and one of these days I will be able to quit.

Your co-workers are a bit odd. Wonder what they do if you take a child in.
Yep, keep thinking house, house, house!

I have a question for you. I have
been reading your blog off and on for sometime. You own what looks like
a lovely home. Why do you rent it out
instead of living in it? I retired at 52 with everything paid off. I live on a small pension and do volunteer work,read,and do fiber arts. Why work if you don't need to.

Lizzie, I would hate to think what they would do and say. I am sure they would let me know their opinions though. They have no problem with that.

Mary, basically I don't like the area that my house is in. And since the rent that I get will pay for the mortgage on another house that I like, it seems like a good deal for now. I could sell everything and probably retire but not as comfortably as I would like since land and housing prices are so low right now.
