Today is my first day of Christmas holidays…and in addition to the imminent arrival of Santa Claus, I’m also really looking forward to a few extra days off work!!
Don’t get me wrong – I adore my job at the veterinary clinic; and at this time of year, we certainly get very spoiled by many of our long-time clients with all kinds of holiday treats (the fact that I can’t indulge in any of them because of my dietary restrictions is beside the point…it’s the thought that counts, and there’s plenty of other staff around to devour the mountain of goodies!!)
It’s just that it’s been seriously busy…way more than what we expect for December, a time when people – quite understandably! – usually have other things on their minds than routine checkups for their furry family members. A dog that’s over-indulged in turkey or a cat that’s decided to snack on tree tinsel, on the other hand?? ‘Tis the season!!
But right now it’s all about catching my breath and putting up my tired feet for a few days…after all, those Boxing Day sales are right around the corner!! 😉
