Culture on the Cheap
Decisions, decisions (and thanks)
Not since I worked as a Receptionist at a state agency (that provided money to victims of violent crime) have I experienced the level of stress that finding a new home for Julie has given me. This task (and that fucking smoke detector that STILL continues to beep as I write this— FUCK YOU Energizer Bunny!) has literally kept me up at night worrying and second-guessing my own decision. I am exhausted. But I have picked a new home for Julie and hope my instincts prove to be correct. Only time will tell.
That said, I want like to thank the following peeps for getting the word out about Julie. If it wasn’t for you, this already difficult task would have been damned near to impossible…

Tomorrow morning Julie’s prospective new family are coming by to meet her face to face and make a final decision. If everything goes as planned she will headed to her new (and hopefully permanent) home as early as 10:00 a.m. In the meantime, I have selected an alternate home lest these folks get cold feet. When everything is finalized I will knock out a smallish post telling you more about who I chose and why.
Thanks again to everyone: the very kind people who contacted me about Julie and especially anyone I may have forgotten to mention. Please be merciful: 36+ hours continuous beeping can make a person a bit flaky.
