Doc said he'd do the surgery for me for a severe discount if I wanted her & I coul pay it off at a slow rate. Called Chris & he said he was all for it (I love this man. I was certain he'd say no.). Called the owner back - nope! If she can't afford to save the dog, no one can have it. So I had to hold the poor little thing while we euth'd her instead. I am heartbroken
That happened to me once when I was still a vet student. Cutest little scruffer with an immune mediated condition that was manageable but the owners pretty much just didn't want to put up with side effects of medication. Just so heartbreaking and frustrating, I do not and will not ever understand the mindset.

Why do I set myself up for all these projects. Don't I know better. The kids are not cooperating and don't want anything to do with them now. Savannah is cutting teeth so shes fussy which is cool but the other two are making it their mission to **** her off worse. I just wanted to have fun with you guys and your acting like little devils.

I am starting a 7 day carb cycling tomorrow to shake things up a bit. Ugh. I don't eat much anymore and there is so much food to eat. Yuck. I know, this is a horrible first world problem to have.

Renee... this made me bawl like a baby, but I agree.


ETA: This has been an emotional day. I'm not exactly sure why but EVERYTHING has made me cry. I watched the video that was on Chaz this morning about the bulldog that was bouncing on the trampoline, holy moly that was insanely funny. But then I watched Soldiers Coming Home videos for 4.5 hours and bawled like a baby. Then I tried to perk up and play fetch with Mickey and we were outside, I threw the ball, he ran to go get it and tripped over a tiny stump and did a full flip, I paniced and ran to him, he jumped up and started running playing and had the "Why are you at my level" face cause I was sitting on the ground trying to get him to stay still long enough to make sure he was okay and I was crying like a baby because when he flipped he landed on his butt and made a whelp noise. Thankfully the vet's office is literally a half a second drive from my house so I took him there just to make sure he was okay and he was. But it scared me to death so I cried. Then I talked to my nana (mom's mom) and I started crying for like no reason. Then I talked to one of Michael's baby momma's (whom I have grown to love and she is one of my best friends) and I cried on the phone with her cause her son, Jadon, talked to me for about 2 minutes and said he missed me, daddy misses me, and nana (michael's mom) wants to see me. THEN I tried to go to sleep and got to thinking about my old horse who I found out yesterday had to be PTS due to colic. Yea... not the best day.

I raise you a SoCo & Coke, good woman.

My sleep schedule is screwed.

Jin got a guitar this paycheck, so things fell a little short. I figured he'd be happy with that and we were going to go see Skyfall. I was really, stupidly excited. He wanted games and a munchie run instead, so that's obviously fallen through.

He still wants a Vita and 360. Obviously annoyed because I NEED a kennel for Zander, and the need is definitely more important than MORE gaming crap.

We got home today and while I was cleaning up the kitchen he said he was going to play online. Then we'd watch movies and play games and relax. I finished the kitchen an hour ago. He shows no signs of getting off anytime soon.

SoCo & Coke and the computer it is tonight.

I think it's part of the territory we're traveling through, Dak. I've been doing that for the last while, especially if someone says something kind to me.

I am now over the stress of everything that has happened in the last month and have forgiven everyone, and now I'm just in sad/cry mode.

Oh god speaking of being kind, grandma was talking to me earlier and was talking in the kindest old lady voice you've ever heard and was saying how smart I was, how I have such a big heart, how forgiving I am, and how happy I have become since I got here... Sweet baby Jesus I cried like someone turned a faucet on. She has said this stuff before and its never made me cry but good gracious.

Oh, I know! When my friend's mom (at the late Thanksgiving party) told me I was coming to their house for Christmas I almost lost it.

Pretty sure I would of lost it.

See my crying mode didn't start until Friday night and even then I only cried like 30 minutes, then I didn't cry at all yesterday, but as soon as I woke up this morning it was like BAM CRY BITCH CRY!
