Since I haven't heard back from anyone about a second part-time job yet, I think I should ask if the sanctuary needs more volunteer help during the week, even if it is helping Marianne with the yard sale items. I just have to get out of the apartment each morning, at least for a little while, or else I'll:
A) go insane
B) go to sleep
C) continue to be depressed and feel lazy
or D) become addicted to the Sims2 (if it hasn't happened already, it's a miracle. LOL)

My dizziness really limits how many hours I can work and how far I can travel, and since I do not have a disabled bus pass or a license, I will have to buy 10-ride tickets or a monthly pass come December 1st, thanks to them no longer being sold at local supermarkets. (Yeah, the new Medicaid/RiteCare program now requires that you call 7 days in advance for tickets and provide date, time, and proof of doctor's appts, so I cannot use them for work and the kids cannot use them for school anymore.) The thing is, working the 6:30am shift actually helped me with my depression and other symptoms. I had stability and a purpose. Plus, it ensured that I'd be home for the kids and able to attend Aidan's track meets. Maybe 7-8 hr shifts, 6 days per week are too much for me, but with the busy season over, being cut back to 2 night shifts just isn't working for me. I had more motivation last winter to prove that I had earned this job and that I could be an asset, which I am... when I'm not praying to the porcelain god. My first goal is to ask if he can fit me in 4 days a week which would give me a day off for appointments; my second goal is to get some sort of confirmation/diagnosis of my Meniere's so that I can get the reduced fare pass and apply for SSDI. My boss and coworkers have been pretty understanding about my condition, since they know when I'm there, I'm a workhorse that keeps things running smoothly and keeps my coworkers happy. I am good at this! My illness forced me to rely more on visual cues from the dogs and be calmer. The pens are not really a full-time option; although I can cover breaks in the medium-sized pen or a few hours in the little dog pen, my fluctuating hearing loss and tinnitus drowns out growls. It is a safety issue.
The kennels are my domain: I'm Mistress of the Hounds. LOL
