So, this new job of mine is rrrruff. To make a long story short, the person I replaced was making much larger mistakes than what anyone ever thought and there are, quite literally, millions of dollars in need of correcting. And we have an audit starting next Monday. Eek!
So what should be a 40 hour a week job is currently about an 80 hour a week job. Lucky for me, Rich hasn’t started his new job, so he’s been home with the dogs and I haven’t had to feel guilty. That changes tomorrow. So now we will both be working very long hours. Aaaand the guilt kicks in. We have all sorts of plans in place to make sure the dogs are taken care of, but this guilt! Man, this guilt.
I’m hoping my wonderful readers can give me some advice! Daycare, Kongs, walks after work, weekend excursions (if I can get a free weekend soon…) and anything else we can think of will be done, but I’m wondering: does anyone else work crazy long hours? What do you do to make sure your dog(s) are enriched and happy? Buddy and Tag are so
lazy up there in age that I’m not too terribly worried about them, and Maggie will go to daycare most days, but still! They’ve been livin’ the good life, never left alone for more than a couple of hours the last few months, and now I feel like they are going to feel incredibly slighted. So, bring on the advice my friends!
