1. Yes, potty trained dogs really do hate to have accidents. And I'm always afraid once she does, it will be easier the next time.
2. I do have potty pads, but forgot about them. Thanks, I'll put one out for Katie and keep it there, Just In Case.
3. Hulu - yes, I have that on my computer, too, as a Favorite, but for some reason I never use it. It does have more to choose from than ch131.com. I'll have to pull it up today and see which shows are there. I'd love to see Dr. Phil and Oprah's past shows, if anyone knows of a website that has them.
We do not have customers coming into our office, and there are only three full time office staff here in San Diego (the corporate office) and the boss, who is gone a lot. The rest of the employees are in the field.
He also owns a body/repair shop where he takes care of our fleet of trucks and works on custom cars which he buys in ragged condition and brings back to like-new appearance and working order, and then sells. I think that's his favorite business, his baby. He does a lot of the hands-on work there, orders all the parts, I think he still paints them, too, in the paint booth. He drives them for a while, then sells them.
We owned a restaurant for a few years that was voted the Best in San Diego in it's class, that was just sold. I think he owns four businesses now, but I expect something new will appear when he's finished working on our new office/shop.
We don't bring pets to work, but I have in the past when work was being done in my condo and I couldn't leave Katie there. Another employee occasionally brings in her daughter if she's in a bind. He's the kind of boss who doesn't care what we do all day, as long as the work gets done. We have an office manager, who watches TV all day while she works and takes care of all her personal business, the bookkeeper works from 8:00 to 2:30, with an hour lunch. Then there's me. I work four days a week from 7:00 to 3:30. I am his personal assistant and handle some personal business as well as whatever else he needs me to do for his businesses - marketing, correspondence, collections, advertising, research, etc. Sometimes I'm swamped, and sometimes I'm not, depending on what's going on. We all have different jobs and different hours, and we back each other up when needed.
The IT guy, accountant, attorneys, and others are not on the payroll, but are called as-needed. It's a pretty sweet operation.
My boss is very good at what he does and is a bit of a perfectionist. He's easy to work for as long as we do our jobs well. He provides full medical, dental, vision, and chiropractic benefits, vacations and holidays, an ongoing stash of treats for the office staff (whatever we want) and daily coffee, and the best work environment he can provide. He has almost no turnover in the office, as you can imagine.
So, that's where I am four days a week, and will stay until I finish building my castle, and retire.
(No photos today. The only thing mentioned that I could get a photo of is a potty pad. No photo is better than a photo of a potty pad.)
It's Saturday!!! From me and Katie, have a wonderful day, everyone! : )
