I wish I could win the lottery and remove myself from the rat race. I can still remove myself from the rat race though I suppose. Instead of simplifying my life I have created a complex, exhausting life. Commuting for an hour to a job that is stealing my soul. The one bright spot at my job is the people, who are amazing. I would guess that most of them are introverts like me and perhaps that is why we all get along so well. I guess this proves that there are bright sides to everything.

One of my coworkers is using her vacation to help EARS (Emergency Animal Rescue Services) care for animals and pets displaced by the hurricanes. She is my hero. It must be heart wrenching work and I'm not sure I could deal with it emotionally so I provide monetary support. Thank God for people like her.

Hey, you have an impressive blog here! I'm surely going to bookmark you! I have

Come and check it out when you get time :-)

1st. Install Word verification on your comments. It's easy and prevents spam comments like the one above.

I imagine that there is a local ASPCA chapter in your area or a Humane Society or Animal Shelter. You could try volunteering there. Or you could just send your friend a few bucks and let her know that you support her.

You have a nice blog here. Keep up the good work.
