Okay! I've composed the email and will send first thing to the office tomorrow morning stating I will be isolating for at least the month of April and possibly May. I will be happy to work remotely if you get it set up or come back after the threat has diminished. I can drop off my key card & key WHEN I PICK UP MY CHECK NEXT WEEK . FIN.
I feel so much better having made this decision. I am going for a walk now.

My daughter turned 40 yesterday.They had a trip planned, but had to cancel.We had decided to social distance from each other a couple of weeks ago.It breaks my heart that I can't hug them in person.Thank goodness for face time and texting.She sent me the cutest video of Gbabe setting up a whole birthday party for her mom in the garden including decorations, picnic blanket, place settings (even for the dog & cat!) and they baked a cake.They made the best of a difficult situation.My heart swells with love.
On the greyhound front, I spoke with one of the rescue guys and he was very negative on my adopting with a cat.He said it is very rare to find one who is truly good with cats. Some of the dogs have been trained with live prey and never get over it. Little Lola is already a neurotic ball of fur, it may be the wrong move at this point to adopt anything.I remember when I babysat my daughter's Papillon she started peeing on the bed. I am too stressed right now to make that big of a decision.
I still haven't given notice at work. I am taking it day by day hoping that I will indeed get paid on a timely basis.I have an N95 mask I'm going to wear. Monday is the last day of the pay period, It's very possible I will make it my last day.I'm just beside myself with uncertainty.
On the bright side, I have been doing my yoga and weight routine every day and physically feel better. Now I just need to cut the sweets!

So as I told DQ I have left messages at a couple of agencies. Is it necessary for them to have crates? I grew up in the day where no one ever did that. It just seems mean to me.I would rather she just sleep on the couch or on my bed. :-)

DQ I think I'm gonna do it! I've been watching greyhound care & adoption videos all afternoon.I told my daughter about my idea and I thought she was going to say I'm crazy, but she thinks it's a great idea.
I have emailed and left VM for a couple of agencies. We shall see.

I'm a 1099 person by choice. I think I'm going to tell them I'm going to isolate until late May or June and if they want me back to give me a call and I can play it by ear. I've got some remote accounting clients of my own so I may just work on growing that.

I was just checking the local rescue site and they have a bunch who just arrived from a racetrack in China. There are other GH rescue places locally.I have a cat so not sure if that would be a bad fit. It is something to consider for sure if I can find the right dumdum.
I need to give myself some time on all of these things so as not act impulsively only because I am feeling emotional.
