As a veterinary technician, I work in a field that is heavily dominated by women. While there are a fair amount of fellas around and more are venturing our way every day, it is still mostly women.

The rest of the staff with the exception of 1 man are all female technicians or assistants. Every single person that works in our clinic is great at what they do.

Additionally, our washer suddenly became non-responsive and needs a new switchboard or control panel or something like that. But, it isn’t a part that you can just replace. Oh no. They don’t make them anymore. So you have to send it in and wait 8-10 days for them to fix it. To top it all off, my check engine light has been on in my car and despite two trips to the mechanic, it’s still on. Uff-dah! Continue reading “How to Maintain a Positive Outlook”
We all have goals, don’t we? Whether it’s to become the senior executive at our corporation or to build a following of our parenting blog, our goals can seem difficult to reach. When we look at our lofty goals like this, we don’t know where to start or what the journey will look like. We feel overwhelmed by our dreams and limited by our beliefs of our ability to achieve them.
