Hot! Hot! Hot!

Hello everyone! Now that I have your attention with the Hugh Jackman eye candy I thought I would post a little something on my blog. Sorry for my absence.

Florida is in full swing for summer. Hot, sticky weather, afternoon thunderstorms complete with lots of lightning and booming thunder, humidity, mosquitoes, lots of sun when it's not raining and more mosquitoes, extremely hot temps in your car when it has been parked in the sun all day while at work. You get the idea!

I have been at my new full time job at Lakeland Regional Medical Center for 3 months now. I work on the switchboard and answer over 500 calls a day. There are 3 girls during the day and we take in 1500-2000 calls a day til 330pm when I leave. Then the afternoon shift takes over and the calls drop down somewhat. Our hospital has almost 4,700 employees. It's the 3rd largest in the state. It's also a trauma center. I seem more broke than ever. Meagan quit her job so I am footing her car insurance, gas for the car, and cell bill til she gets another job. Lakeland, located in Polk County, is the pits for finding a job!

I have another pug now. She is black and just turned a year old. I got her about 3 months ago from a former co-worker. Her little boy was scared of her as she plays pretty rough. I'm not sure if being black makes her a little more rambuntious than the fawns but she is a HANDFUL!! Into everything, none of the others bothered anything. She's another story! Her name is Onyx. Has fur that feels like velvet amd a little white blaze on her chest. Really cute! All he others are getting older by the day. My Fuji will be 13 in October and Gidget turned 5 in March. Sassy, the chi, turned 11. Elvis, yorkie mix, is really old and only God knows his true age. Cosmo, a schnorkie, is 8 now. Diesel the pom, will be 4 in December I think. Have I left out anyone? 7 dogs, no I don't think so. Then there are the cats!

I read blogs several times a week. Facebook has taken up TOO much of my time. I need to get back to blogging. I love all of your stories and seeing the pics you post. I still don't have a camera but one day maybe! Til next post, STAY COOL!!

I know FB has taken too much of my time, too. I think the job market is bad everywhere. I hope she finds a job soon so you can get some relief. Our little Tiny was a black pug with a white spot on her chest. She was a spitfire, too. I have found that the black pugs are "bossy." Love them! You sure do have a houseful of pets!

Hi Becky,
Good to see you post!! I'm so glad you found a job and it sounds as though it's keeping you very busy. Congratulations too on your new pug! We've been reading about your hot weather. So far our high temperatures would seem like fall to you but it's hot for us. I'm on FB too. Just search for Red Pine Mountain. Thanks again for being such a good friend.

OK, I was on a friend's blog and hit that "next blog" link at the top (I like to do that to see what I can find out there) and low-and-behold what did I see? Only the absolutely hunkiest (is that a word? is now) man on the face of this earth. (My hubs knows how I feel about Hugh and puts up with it reluctantly.) Yes, you got my attention and I now plan on following your blog. You had me at Hugh. :-)

Just checking in and happy to hear that you now have a job. Obviously I have not been here for awhile since I am just now finding out about it. I hope it is still going well for you!

And that you are healthy as well.

Take care,
