Got a New Job!

The past three weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind. After job searching since the middle of April, I finally (thanks to God) got a new job. I’ll be teaching 6th grade reading at a middle school on the opposite side of the city from where I’ve been teaching the last 8 years. Our kiddos come back on Tuesday, and I’m almost ready. 

I think it’s important to change things up a bit ever so often in order to keep from getting burned out or stagnant. So far, it’s been a good change. Especially considering I applied for non-teaching jobs because I was pretty much done by the end of the very, very long year. (More about this later).

At my new school, the other teachers and the principals have been kind and welcoming. They aren’t putting on a show, just real people. The way I like it.

I really want to write more, but I have to get my body clock in gear for getting up ridiculously early again. (Mornings are my most difficult challenge). So, with that, I’ll log of and get myself ready for sleepy time.


My Go-To Vet and Groomer

Pet Vet Supply in Midwest City, Oklahoma is MY go-to dog place! It’s small enough that they know me and my dog when we come in, but it’s also a three-in-one service. Pet store, groomer and two of the most loving vets I’ve ever met.

Pet Vet Perks:

  • They host fundraising events for dog and cat shelters, donating a portion of sales to the shelters, as well as, giving our furry four-legged friends an opportunity to find families. I don’t have the money or facilities to build a shelter, but I can support those who do by supporting my locally owned, neighborhood Pet Vet Supply.
  • Save $25 on a purchase! They used to have punch cards that you could redeem for $25 off of the vet or groomer cost. Now, they do it all on the computer under the customer’s name, so I don’t have to keep up with the card anymore.
  • They provide quick doggie mani/pedi for only $10. When my fuzzy child is click, click, clicking on the tile or wood floor, I just pop in for about 10 minutes and she is click-free. Easy sneezy!
  • They sell nutritious dog and cat food and treats, not the big brands that are full of scary ingredients. The brand selection is concise compared to large pet stores, which makes it easier for this doggie mommy to choose.
  • They supply FREE sample bags of food so you can determine if your picky eater will like it before you buy it.
  • Employees are friendly! When you purchase dog or cat food, they will gladly carry it for you from the shelves to the check out and even to your car if you wish.
  • They provide promotions and sales for flea and tick medicines, heart worm prevention, and vaccinations.

So, if you’re looking for a trustworthy and convenient vet, groomer, or pet supply store anywhere near Midwest City, Oklahoma, visit Pet Vet Supply. I know you’ll love it!
