So, Wednesday I announced that I had a job interview at an emergency animal hospital. I went to the interview and everything went well... in my opinion anyways. The clinic is very new and pretty fancy so I'm excited. The position I applied for is part time, so I will still have plenty of time to blog if I get the job. I have to go back tomorrow for a working interview.
This is normal. I don't think I've ever applied for a job as a veterinary technician where I didn't have to do a working interview. It's where you go in and work for a few hours so that they can make sure you really have the skills you say you do. It's been a little over a year since I've used my skills, so I hope I haven't lost the magic touch. I'll keep you updated!
Our 4th of July celebration here was lots of fun. We had a barbecue while the kids swam in the pool. I dropped some meat from the grill to the ground. Too bad Shiner wasn't outside at the time or she would have got herself a tasty treat!

After all of that, we popped off some fireworks in the driveway. Shiner was safely locked away. Forutnately, fireworks don't scare her. In fact, she's perfectly OK with running right up to one and trying to "get it"... that's the reason we don't let her out on the 4th.

The city I live in launched their firework show in the park across the street from my house just like they do every year. This year, the minor league baseball field in the park launched their own fireworks show at the same time as the city's fireworks. Pretty cool! We are used to fireworks here. The baseball team sets them off just about every Friday they have a game in the summertime.
Unrelated to the 4th of July celebrations, I'd like to congratulate Michelle S. for winning our World's Best Cat Litter Giveaway! If you didn't win, no worries. We have some more cool giveaways coming up soon.
