An Open Confession to Every Vet Tech I’ve Ever Worked With

Dear Amazing Veterinary Technicians of the World,

It’s sad that you only get one week to celebrate you and all that you do. The unsung heroes, the client counselors, absorbers of abuse, veterinary emotional support offerers, and in general people without whom these clinics would fall to pieces.

I’d like to offer to you this week an open apology for the transgressions of my past years.

  1. I ate the last M&M. I’m sorry. I know now you probably hadn’t eaten in 12 hours and really needed it. I also know you figured it out and let it slide.
  2. I actually wasn’t being helpful when I said I would clean that kennel. Thanks for being gracious. I saw you go back in later and do it correctly.
  3. When you couldn’t hit a vein and asked me to and I said “Try again! Practice makes perfect!” that was only because I knew if you couldn’t hit it, there was no way I could.
  4. I now know that your gentle suggestions are not really suggestions. I should have listened the first 15 times you were right.
  5. If it were not for you I would have walked into 45 exam rooms with my sunglasses on top of my head.
  6. When I left the room after that really hard euthanasia to “see my next appointment,” I went into the back to cry and left you alone with that sweet elderly lady because you were better at this stuff that me.
  7. For all the times you took care of me and looked out for my mental well-being, I rarely did the same for you. If I did, it wasn’t enough.

These days I work solo, and to be honest every day I head out I wonder to myself if I couldn’t come up with a business model that allows me to have you along. Because I need you. As I sit in a living room looking in horror at a vein that will not cooperate, I need you.

When I see a little kid making a beeline for the syringes and I only have two hands when I need three, I need you.

When there is a mess and I need to be graceful and take care of it with no one noticing instead of asking the owners if they have any paper towels, I need you.

When it’s been a rough afternoon and I could use a friend to talk to, I need you.

You all are the heartbeat of the clinic. Thank you.

I almost forgot to do this post this month you guys. I usually plan the blog’s editorial calendar a few weeks in advance, and I was lying in bed the other night and realized that I didn’t have a ‘What I’m Wearing Now‘ scheduled for October. And because that’s, like, a real problem and everything, I immediately got out of bed and went into my office so I could switch some posts around and pencil it in. At 2 AM. Clearly I have issues.

These posts are actually some of my favorites to do, and I always look forward to them, because it’s fun for me to go back and compare what I’ve been wearing from past months and see how things have evolved (or, in many cases, especially during the second half of my pregnancy, stayed the same). I think that the main reason I forgot about this month is because I’ve done exactly what I said I would not do again after my last pregnancy, and that is resort to comfort over style to the point that I’m basically wearing some variation of the same tunic/legging/maternity jean combo every single day. And because I have no shame, I’ll also tell you that often, I wear the exact same outfit (yes, I mean without washing it) for a good three days in a row.  I’m measuring a little bigger this time around, so although I just entered into my third trimester last week, I’m already to the point where comfort wins. I have admittedly developed what is a very intimate relationship with my grey jersey tunic-style tee and black leggings.

All of this said, I do still (at least to some degree) care about looking somewhat stylish despite the fact that nothing fits properly and I often look like I’m headed to a yoga class even when I’m headed out to a dinner. My solution for this has mainly been to dress up my look with jewelry, accessories, and lip gloss. I also picked up a calf-length printed cardigan/knit kimono last weekend that I absolutely adore and that has become key to dressing up my pregnancy uniform. I also love this one and think I may need to buy it as well, as my current one has already made an appearance more times than any one article of clothing should in one week.

The weather has finally turned cold here, which means that my beloved lightweight summer kimonos have been put away for the winter and replaced with cardigans, and leggings and maternity jeans have taken the place of cut-off denim shorts. Other than that, you may recognize many of the pieces here from the last couple of months as well.

In other news, this is the second week in a row I’m posting on a Friday, which also means two weeks of posts on every single weekday. Craziness, I know. We normally only do four posts a week, but as the holidays approach and busy blog season begins, you’ll be seeing five or so posts most weeks from now on. Woot! And speaking of busy weeks coming to an end, I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and weekend! I’m taking the day off today to go to the hospital for a three hour glucose test (a regular pregnancy tradition if you fail the one hour screening, which I passed last time but failed by just a few points this time – major sad face). I almost passed out during the one hour test for which I didn’t even have to fast, and this one will be a total of fifteen hours of fasting along with consuming what I hear is an even less tolerable sugar-filled beverage before I can eat, so it should be interesting. After that, because I feel sorry for myself, I’m going to devour a large amount of food, and then we’re taking Essley to this seriously amazing play place about a half hour away that is filled with toddler goodness like ball pits and padded blocks and giant sized Legos and big slides. I’m stoked. See you Monday!
