First of all...  
...a HUGE thank you to everyone who took my quiz that I posted on Saturday! :) Here are the answers, if anyone is interested:

1. In 1993 I graduated with my bachelor's degree. What was it in?
Photography - I tell ya, I'm waaay out of my element in the bank! :P

2. It's no secret that I don't like my job. What do I do at the bank?
Investment Advisor - Several people thought I was a customer service rep, which is a very good answer since I was one for about two years before getting my current position in the investment department.

3. Everyone has to get this one correct. Who is my favorite musical theatre performer?
Kevin Earley - And every single person got this one right! :) I guess it wasn't too difficult! :)

4. How did I first meet my husband, Mark?
In the Jaycees - It was the ONE good thing that came out of the Jaycees. :) JK, of course! ;)

5. What musical did I first see that started my love of theatre?
A Chorus Line - This was a hard one, even Mark got it wrong. I was 13 and after I saw it, I was through - I was a theatre fan for life...

6. For five years, I lived in California. Where in California did I live?
Santa Barbara - A few people guessed Burbank since I guess I talk about it so much. :)

7. Of all these places listed below where HAVEN'T I worked during my part time days?
McDonald's - yes, I never worked at the golden arches, though I had many friends who did :)

8. What does my husband, Mark do for a living?
Graphic Designer - I guess if everyone knew I liked Kevin and only a few people knew what Mark does for a living, I guess I should talk more about my husband in my future posts! Ooops! ;)

9. Mark & I brought Sydney home on a special day. What was it?
My Dad's birthday - I'm sorry, this was a hard one and if you've read my journal recently "the day we moved into our house" would be a better answer. But I was so depressed on my Dad's birthday one year that Mark took me to the pet store to play with puppies and we ended up bringing Sydney home with us. Only Mark got this one correct.

10. What's special about my Mom & in-laws relationship?
Our Moms lived in the same college dorm - Even Mark got this one wrong!

In other news, Sydney had another good vet appointment today. They were so happy to hear that Sydney started eating on her own that they gave her a stuffed toy as a gift. That was so sweet of them! :) Sydney's been carrying it around the house everywhere and refuses to put it down. :)

And as for my job, I decided that I didn't want my boss to put himself on the line for me. I wouldn't want to hold him back from succeeding at our branch and if my heart isn't in my job, it really isn't fair to him. I'll miss working with him, but I think my decision is the best for everyone involved. :(

Thanks again to everyone who took my quiz! :)

Thank you, Nikki! We were very worried for a while, but thankfully she seems to be doing much better. :) Thanks for your nice thoughts for her.

I am REALLY glad to hear Sydney is better! Glad you made a decision with your job, If this doesn't work out, you can always look for another, maybe it is time for a change. You never know what is out there until you look! Good Luck with everything!!

Thanks so much, Barb. :) We really thankful that Sydney is feeling better and when she started eating, I think that was one of the best signs we've seen so far. :) We feel really encouraged by her actions. :) Thanks for all your good thoughts for her and my job situation. Please give Mortie a hug for me.

I'm so glad about Sydney. Wish I had seen her with the stuffed toy, it surely looked cute. :) Take care, please.
Sherishutterbug93 on November 11th, 2003 01:53 pm (UTC)
She was so adorable with the toy and just wouldn't put it down. She still has trouble climbing the stairs, but insisted on carrying her toy up the stairs last night. :) Please take care too. *HUGS*

Sydney & the stuffed toy sound cute! I had bought a stuffed toy for my dog & was told it would love it because my smell would transfer onto the toy and he'd be comforted & would bond with it. Roscoe used to mostly do that wild thing dogs do where they hold it in their mouth and growl and shake it. :o

Sydney does that too sometimes. She hasn't done it in a while. Lately, she's been carrying them around in her mouth and cuddling up with them when she goes to sleep. Maybe when she feels better her other instincts will kick in and she'll shake them and growl at them again.

I'm happy Sydney is getting better. :) *hugs* That's wonderful. I wish I could have seen her parade around w/that stuffed animal. :)

As long as you feel that you made the right choice for work that's all that matters. I knew I missed the questions you have never really talked about since I've been reading your journal. :)

Thanks, Carrie! :) She was adorable and it was so nice to see her act like herself again! :) Please take care. *HUGS*

Thanks for taking the quiz. :) And I think you were one of the only two people who got "A Chorus Line" correct. :) *HUGS* to you.
