today has been driving me crazy..well, this week..but today especially. i've felt like crap the last couple of weeks and i guess i manage through it better while i'm at work. last weekend i didn't do much but stay in bed and look at grooming stuff all weekend. emailed tons of places asking for catalogs and shampoo samples. today i've slept most of it. when i am awake, i can't seem to keep my focus on anything. i try to browse or read or even look through the one magazine i received and i can barely do any of it.
been getting on a groomer forum all week. ideas and things keep coming to me.
i've wanted my own place for a long while. now is certainly not a good time to do so, economy and all. and there have been a few grooming incidents where i was very glad to be at a vets office. it's really not bad where i work, though closer would be wonderful, but the main thing i hate is how everything is in one room. makes it impossible to keep clean! i'd also like to be able to sell things, not a lot, but combs, brushes, fancy collars, little stuff. i'm sure boss would be okay with it, but i haven't really thought much into it. well, sorta have. but if i bought it all, how would it be paid? through him and i get a commission off it? and where would i keep it all? i'm not always there during their open hours. guess i could suggest and let people know, but keep it all under lock and key? just doesn't seem feasible.
jumping back over to the "everything in one room". been thinking of new ways to try and rearrange it all. not sure if they'll frown upon me blocking the 2nd door, but i am planning on it. think the main way i'd like to try would end up blocking my window, which i am not willing to do. i need that window in the winter and opening it with cages right there is not a good idea. especially in january with wet puppies under fans. i am pretty sure my ideas aren't going to work. i'm wanting to kinda "cage" in the cages..guess like a pi, but i'm pretty sure to do that will take up too much space outwards. two big reasons i need to, i'd like more wall space to use, and two sets of cages have fans on the ends that suck up all the dirt and hair. so they need to be aimed in such a way that wind doesn't blow all over me, and as little hair and dirt gets sucked into them. hoping i can move my table along the same wall and them and will be closer to the phone, though i will be losing counter space since i bought my own little storage unit thing, i won't really need to move the long counter and drawers, which is good cause they're a bitch to move, but that will kill the drawers i use to safely lay my clippers down, and the counter space i take up for tools i am using. could buy another storage unit thing. i certainly have enough stuff to fill it up. a worry i have for IF i can fit my table where i am thinking is it'll put me under the vents, as in under and out of the way of so ac wouldn't reach me well. and i NEEDS me ac!!..though i did buy those plastic things for them last time my table was over there to help direct the air onto me...wonder where those went. know one of them broke from the high velocity dryer..
all this rearranging stuff came to mind today when i saw some stairs in a magazine and stairs would be nice. make it sorta easier to get dogs in the tub..maybe. but those were plastic and only hold up to 120 pounds, so i asked my dad to make me some. things are in the way where the stairs would need to go and at the moment, and there is no place for those things to be moved within my room.
think that's enough babble for now. think i'll try and find things on here..only thing i can think of is some sort of screen covering for those fans..not sure how to word it on google though..
