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.

  2. miss heather – you can’t rig something to pull it across the roof? or scramble across the roof to get it yourself? or leave a note on the front door of the offending building:

    TO THE MORONS WHO THREW THE SMOKE DETECTOR ON THE ROOF

    THE BEEPING IS DRIVING US NUTS. IF YOU DON’T TAKE IT OFF THE ROOF AND TAKE THE BATTERIES OUT, WE WILL CALL THE POLICE AND REPORT SUSPICIOUS DRUG DEALING ACTIVITY IN YOUR BUILDING.

    THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.

Tell me what you're thinking...
