The job, the dogs, and sleep

Ok, the job...LOVE IT! It is stress-free! It really is. It can get busy sometimes, but the busyness does not equal stress. It's great! The hours are good, the people I'm working with are easy to get along with, and did I mention, it's stress-free??? I doubt I'll be able to advance pay-wise nearly as well as if I was working in the hospital, but for now I'm satisfied. Apparently the employees haven't had any increases since they started a little over a year ago. That's a little discouraging, but who knows what the future holds.

The dogs...MUCH improved. We started shock collar training on Monday, and it's going very well. It's not used as punishment like I thought, it's an attention-getter when giving a command. And the dogs are already behaving better without the collar, too.

Sleep...why am I so sleepy all the time? I went to the gym yesterday after work and I'm hoping, without much hope, that exercise will help. I've tried using exercise in the past to help with sleep...actually to help me sleep better at night, but without success. So I'm not so optimistic that it will help me be more awake. The good news is I slept like a baby last night without any taking any medication. That rarely happens. But I was super sleepy on the way to work this morning, and sleepy now and I'm supposed to go to YM tonight. I wish I wanted to go, but I just want to sleep! But I should go.

I'm glad you came...even if you were sleepy. You are an important part of our group and are so missed when you aren't there. It was great to see you last night and get together and catch up on Tuesday, too! Glad you are loving the job. Yay for that! Oh, and I really might want your dog trainer's name.
