For the longest time, I wouldn’t tell people I was a teacher. There were just some things about the job (or at least how I was doing the job) that didn’t align with whom I feel I am.
My business mentor the incomparable MP reminds us often to “keep the main thing the main thing.” If you’re a loyal reader, you know what’s at the center of my vision board that hangs above the center of my desk. If you’re new here, I won’t keep you in the metaphorical dark. At the center… Continue reading Linus
On the first day of this fresh new year, I visited Snoopy, Budgie and their mom Jean. Budgie has been acting out a bit so Jean wanted me to check in with him and make sure all is well with him. Before I left my house, I rubbed drops of Highest Potential essential oil over… Continue reading Snoopy & Budgie 2017
Help can take myriad forms. For labeling purposes, help in the Rescue world takes the following forms: -Catches/Rescues: safely containing and bringing an abandoned rabbit to safety -Adopting: committing to loving and caring for a rabbit indoors for his/her life span -Fostering: caring for and loving an adoptable or sanctuary rabbit in your home until… Continue reading Never Too Far
The last two strays our team has caught look a lot alike. Both large, both Californians. One female, now named Monica Mae. One male, rescued yesterday, now named Boo (paying homage to both Halloween weekend and to literary legend Boo Radley—props to Jill for this perfect name choice). Monica Mae and Boo were rescued in… Continue reading Strays No More
I never took a business class in high school or college. Ironically, I taught college-level business classes at a small college a few years ago. With teaching, when you have “it,” you have “it.” Just give me a few moments with the book and I can get the content out. But anyway… last January, I… Continue reading Hoppy Family
I’ve been asked the question “Why rabbits?” in a variety of contexts over the five years that I’ve been a bunny-mom and subsequently a rescuer. I typically blink thrice and answer something along the lines of “uh, because… they are awesome.” I’m sure I’ve given some more constructive answers when the asker is deserving of… Continue reading Why Rabbits?
I’m living parallel story lines in my personal life and my Rescue life. Both of these story lines are unfolding at their own pace, despite how much I might try to control them. Patience was never my strong suit. Some people like to brag about how few effs they give or how unfiltered they are;… Continue reading Progress
In Rescue life, I find myself saying no very often. And it’s not a struggle for me. I attribute that to my logical, black-and-white, organized nature. We don’t have a shelter facility; all of our rabbits are fostered in private homes. Thus, we can’t do anything unless someone can offer a space in their own… Continue reading No.
2016 is nothing but consistent. It has been tough for many people in many realms. The loses of loved ones, furry and non, world-famous and family-famous, continue. The heartbreak is palpable. Last December, a colleague of mine from the elusive day job adopted a rabbit from us. To be honest, I wasn’t sure how this… Continue reading What Wouldn’t You Do?
