i don't know why i haven't made it a priority to get a working furnace in here or at least replace that gas fireplace. now i will be messing around with freaking heaters everywhere again for the winter....actually, i know why...we can "make do" with heaters even tho they are a pain and other stuff we just can't "make do " with so it gets my attention.
money is always a huge concern...the vet bills are thru the roof..too many sicko's around here lately and the electrician is costing more than i thought cuz he is actually installing everything to code. this is good cuz electrical stuff scares me but why does that metal stuff cost like $400 a roll? sigh...i wish we lived in a very cheap world.
i am hoping this is the last week we need to bring in water cuz that will save almost $200 a week...altho we probably won't notice the difference once we start heating all the areas again.
i should have taken those 2 overtime shifts that i was called for last weekend but i said no cuz of all of the stuff that i needed to do for the open house...now i wished i had taken the shifts (but thats only cuz the open house is over and everything is done!)
the first biggest worry in rescue is always the animals them selves...the second is the money to pay for it all...the next big worry is keeping your sanity relatively intact and then all the other worries just start blending in..people stuff, legal stuff, nice to do stuff,,,like....
we need a volunteer to attend the kensington foundation art auction fundraiser 11 am -5 pm on oct 3rd (i think, but maybe it is the 4th) in downtown vancouver to answer any questions that folks have about saints....if anyone is available... please let me know...i am not even sure if we are one of the recipients of this particular fundraiser but we have been in the past so we should be there if we can....and i am working that day.
so...oh saints heavenly guardian angel? the accounts are low, the bills are high so if you could please get your head out of the clouds and do something big for us to last thru the lull until xmas, that would be nice.
