reality check has arrived...we are not going to survive on wishes and prayers any longer. starting next week, i start making drastic cutbacks. if i absolutely have to crack the GIC...i crack the GIC,..we are lucky to have it to crack...but first i will try some other things.
once the US dogs arrive...i will close down admissions for awhile. that will eventually help with the workload esp. with our recent increase in adoptions.
i would prefer to just worry about the animals themselves, end of story. but unfortunately there is money stuff and people stuff that i have to deal with too.
anyway, we have enough food for everyone for a few weeks...everyone is pretty much up to date on medical care so except for emergencies and med refills and special diets, we should be able to hold the vet bills where they are.
i don't know why god doesn't just let me win the lottery. he knows damn well i will put it to very good use.... (it might be because i rarely remember to actually buy a ticket.)
what is not really helpful was him allowing BC Hydro and Terasen Gas to send me almost $2000 in utilities bills this month...low blow and that hurts....thx so much ...not.
i would like to point out that i did not invent cold winter weather...nor did i decide to turn off the sunlight in the late afternoon...those were pretty stupid and costly heavenly decisions from my point of view.
ahh well...i am going to sulk in bed with my beloved bed crew, minus my best friend cuddles who would try to cheer me up....except i did the noble thing and sent him to kathy's house!
