This has been an interesting week. I start me new job on Aug 6. I was hoping to give my notice today and they would keep me next week (for the paycheck you see). Yesterday I had a visit from the HR lady who told me today is my last day. I knew it was coming, which is one reason I had been seeking a new job, but honestly I thought they would give me a little more notice. What irritates me most is that my own recruiter was told Monday and she has yet to contact me. Talk about lousy communication and unprofessional. However, I am not unhappy about being off next week. I plan on finishing up the special order blanket and the DH wants to tackle a little of the train room, which is currently just storage for boxes we haven't yet unpacked.
Yesterday we had quite a storm come in. Being the weather geek I am, I was fascinated and thrilled with the skies. I took pics of the clouds and want to share a few. Isn't it amazing and beautiful?? It produced quite a lot of thunder, lightning and eventually behind this lots of rain.
I won't bore you with more. LOL
Hula seems to be doing alright. She is such a sweet kitten. She is about a year old now and full of curiousity. She has spent a good deal of her life in the vet's office in one of their recovery cages. Because of her loss of an ear she has balance issues and she walks a little crooked, runs only a short distance and also crooked and sometimes her head will appear as if she is moving in a circle. Hence her being called Hula. She is very affectionate and spent a good part of the evening on the loveseat beside playing with my cotton yarn. She was in heaven. Dumpster doesn't seem to pay her much mind. They have exchanged a few hisses and nothing more. Hooters is a bit more put out and a tad more aggressive, but I think with time she will be alright. We are giving Hooters lots of petting and talking to her, letting her know it's all going to be okay. I have explained to both cats how Hula just needs a good home and a family to love her. I reminded them both they were also abandoned once and needed a forever home, too.
