Poor Calvin. He looks so miserable!

Ah! What a relief... I finally have all of my "big" shopping done for my trip. Good thing, too... Seeing as I leave on Sunday!

Now I just have to buy stupid little things, like body wash. And perhaps a pair of pajama pants...

I wish I could hire one of you wonderful ladies to babysit for me. I can't leave Calvin home alone for the next 4-6 weeks (he's got major crate issues and would just further hurt himself trying to get out, he's ok if someone is here with him) and I have no idea how I'll get out and do the errands I need to do.

Or how I'll attend my honeys promotion ceremony that I'm supposed to participate in.

Maybe I can find a local dog sitter that would come stay at the house for a few hours. I'll just feel strange having someone in the house that I don't know.

Calvin says thank you VERY much for the well wishes.

I'm so excited for you and your trip! Will you be able to keep us updated on how things are going while you're away?

Exciting, SCG! I went shopping for conditioner, soap, and deodorant and got teased a bit about how much of everything I got. I leave on Sunday, too, though obviously not as far as you! But I do not want to run out of anything I can't get there, so I'd rather have extra!

See if one of your husband's coworkers has a trustworthy teenager that will watch Calvin for you. Flying Spaghetti Monster knows we always need money for something....

Would he be ok in doggie daycare? I can't remember where you are in CT, but the people at Woodbury Pet Commons are very nice if you're anywhere near there. I hope he feels better soon. I hate seeing unhappy doggies. Is he allowed treats? Would love to send some your way to make him feel better. PM me.

I've got to keep him as immobile as possible so daycare (even crated) isn't an option. I think he'd be too stimulated and wanting to jump around and he's got to be as still as possible. Thank you for the suggestion though! And for the offer of treats, I'm pretty sure I saw Calvin's ears perk up.

Oh, man. I forgot you were in Connecticut. I was going to offer to meet you partway so he could stay with me.

But my gang would want to play, so he wouldn't be immobile.

Isht.

Ninja....I know I know....It's just so very tempting not to shout it at them when someone thinks it's okay to put their hands (and other things) on you without permission. Ugh. I'll keep it under wraps. *grumble grumble*

Edited to say:

Kenzie...he did sign a waiver...but the incident in question was not given to him as his reason for termination... (me being the only female in this office gave fear that he would obviously know where it came from and take revenge) I'm afraid that since he was only told "we no longer need your services" that that might be a reason that I can't say it to his prospective employer...

???
There's a very fine line about what you can and cannot disclose. If your company has a lawyer on retainer, you could check with her/him, but the risk of liability is high.

Of course I agree that this jerk deserves to be outed, but not only did I formerly work with lawyers, I also checked references for a "large national insurance company" and the rules have tightened significantly since then.

Really, I'm just trying to cover your @ss. The hell you would face in court if a lawsuit is indeed instigated is worse than the @ss-kicking this guy deserves.

I'm sorry things work this way, but they do.

Thanks! I'm going to be keeping a blog, so I'll post it in my signature once it's set up! Otherwise, I'll probably pop in, here and there!

And Saria, I did the same thing! I also forgot to get a cart, so I was walking around with armfuls of hygiene products! I always bring way too much with me, but otherwise I worry about whether or not I'll have enough! I figure it's a pretty harmless habit to have...

Legends - I'm living in France for the summer, and I'd be happy to have some company!

Legends, you'll want to stick with SCG since I'm only going to Sunset Beach on Long Island for the summer. Can't quite compete with France.

Wow SCG, that's fantastic!

I totally relate about the over packing of hygiene products. Actually, I'm pretty sure everyone on this board can relate to that.

Rou, Calvin seems to think the champagne is worth a try. And congratulations on the job!

Ninja, that's so very sweet of you. Calvin loves his aunt.

We're on hour 5 of the crate confinement (I've dubbed it Cr8 H8 ) and this is gonna be a loooooooooooong 4-6 weeks.
