I would like to start this off by saying that I'm an absurd hypocrite because I am always late!!
But I have clients who were supposed to come pick up dogs at 8:30. It's nearly 9 and they're not here. I have two dogs being dropped off at 9 so if these other people show up to pick up it'll be a messy moment. I also have two dogs that are supposed to be dropped off today and after checking the notes I realize that they don't have drop off times. Annoying. This throws off my whole day because I still have a bunch to do:
I have to do a diabetic injection 2 towns away at 9:45 . . . I'll be cutting it close (meanwhile it's for a 26 pound cat who wants me dead . . . always a good time). Then I have to take care of my cat that lives with my parents (she and Wally want to kill each other so when I moved she stayed with them), then drive back in the OTHER direction from my house to take care of a cat I'm catsitting for this weekend. Then make it back here to let the dogs out again and begin play sessions.
In addition I have a paper to write for tomorrow, my house is a pig sty which I MUST clean before the day manager comes in tomorrow, Wally needs to go for a loooooooooong walk, I have to rewash all of my clean clothes (see "marking" thread), I have to bleach the kennel yard, do checkouts from 4-5 (everyone had better be on time) and be at dinner 40 minutes away by 7pm.
Man today is chaotic and is just being put off more with people who are not ontime and who didn't leave me a message yesterday letting me know what time they're dropping off
