  • I don't know what to do with myself

    I goofed up and booked dogs on Memorial Day. My appointment book has little iddy biddy notes on the side that tells me if it's a holiday, but I never noticed it. By the time I realized it, I didn't want to call the people and reschedule because they had already waited for 2 weeks to get an appointment and by that time, I was booked 3 weeks out. So instead, I marked today off in my book to give myself my own holiday.

    And here I sit trying to enjoy my much needed day off but going stir crazy because I'm not at the shop working. Not that I really want to be there, but since that's all I do with my life these days, I don't know what else to do. LOL!! There's something wrong with me. I think I may have a slight case of brain damage or something.

    **sigh**

      If I were you I might call those people that I booked just to make sure that they realized they booked that day. I've had people try to book on a holiday not realizing that it was a holiday. They might still want the appointment, or they may not. Or you may have half cancel, and then you could at least get a half day out of it.

        I would X off holidays so you don't do that again. I did the same thing. But my pda does not say holiday. I called and rescheduled because there is a parade in my town that goes right up my street and they close the streets off from 9 till 11 and my appt was for 10. sorry, can't make it lol. But I am not booked that far out.

          grab your dog and go.

          When I don't have anything pressing to do, I grab my poodle and
          head for the park. There are several around here, and I love to take him
          walking. Usually a mile out and a mile back, Takes about an hour and ahalf.
          Doen't cost a dime and I feel so good afterwards. Like I have accomplished something. I can't believe I used to hate to walk.

          I am a heavy weight and I need the exercise, I also get to show off my poodle and hand out cards to anybody that is interested.

            I do the same on my days off. so used to rush rush and hustle hustle, its hard to relax. Then I feel guilty for not being at work!! it must be a woman thing! lol go to the gym or the bookstore or rent a movie to watch, you have to do something to get your mind off it. Even on my days off Im either lookn through grooming mags, or online researching grooming something..its groom groom groom....I think its stress related!!

              they need to make a Pet Groomer video game so we can play that on our days off. Comes complete with all the different crazy, sweet customers and the more tips you get the higher level groomer you are. That would be cool.

                    I love this idea, don't forget when we go to the higher level, we get better equipments, you know, from normal brush to les pooches, better HV dryers.... and maybe we can play on line so we can trade.... but where is the game over? I don't want to be eaten by a dog or rude customers.

                      In your book or whatever you use block out the days for the whole year that you wont or cant work. I do this 1 year in advance. I work around the kids being in school. I must be off when they are off and work when they are in school. I have to be very exact and not mess up so i study the school calander and plan ahead all holidays. Oh and when your off go to the movies,catch up on laundry, visit some friends, and i hate to say this but dont come here cause you will only dwell on grooming. You need to get your mind off of work and dogs at some point. It isnt healthy.

                          I'm the same way when I'm off work

                          Last week my Husband gutted and rebuilt my van, things didn't get finished all the way and I had made app for the following week. I was so stressed calling everyone and telling what was going on. I didn't know when to tell them I would be able to come back. I should have had a nice time with all this free time but I couldn't figure out what to do with my new found time, anyway you get the picture. I think we work so much and complain that we are so busy and we don't know anything eles. I did finally get to work but now I'm working until 8pm until I get caught up. Oh well. I do love the new part of my van my husband did a wonderful job.
