first of all...i apparently sucked at guessing how much i should have paid on my shaw bill last month and did not pay enough and then i was late this month so they cut me off.
ooops...no internet access for 24 hours...that pretty much sucked.
and then tonight, even tho i did pay the bill on my lunch break and i was hooked back up...i spent the last 2 hours snuggled in bed with the buddies watching the Xfactor which i totally love...yay!
anyway..yes jan..if someone can go and get the dryer and bring it out..we would be grateful to have it as another back up. we no longer need a primary dryer because maggie bought us one today and it is being delivered tomorrow...thank you so much maggie and another big yay!
lynne has been buying us the canned dog food this week AND coming up and taking the laundry home each day so another thank you to lynne and another huge yay!
helga this week has been buying the very expensive royal canin baby cat food for the cats who really need it in the medical room and a couple of really kind folks have sent in some cheques to help us over this bump...so a couple of more gynormous yays to you all!
these past couple of weeks have been pretty damn stressful and the challenge will continue yet for a bit. once i get the xmas letter written and sent out and the bake sale happens things should get better for a bit. part of me is so grateful to you guys for stepping up and helping us out. the other part of me (who feels like a begger and a pretty damn lowlife) is shamed and so very sorry that i let things snowball down on us all.
i will be cutting more staff hours next week and i am buying the barn feed. i think we can squeeze thru with the basic absolute necessities over the next few weeks if i am really careful...just please no more unexpected things like broken appliances or possibly messed up electrical stuff.
the fire alarm went off in the barn again today (man! i am SO glad we have a monitered fire alarm system... as soon as the alarm goes off the company phones me straight away at work!) and we have a broken breaker out there that just happened yesterday so i am worried that we have a dangerous wiring problem happening out there. i called the electrician...he can't come before friday which is fine with me because i don't get paid until friday anyway. until then we will turn off all of the breakers and cut the electricity completely until we get everything cleared for safety.
laura took little fostered kristy into the vets today..those lumps in her lymph nodes are getting bigger. the vets called and said...it might still be a left over infection so they sent her home with antibiotics but they also asked for permission to send a sample off in case it is cancer so i said ok to that because we need to know.
coco puff is feeling better.
cocoa's ears are better but he still has diarrhea so i picked up some flagyl for him from the vets and we will see if that helps.
when colleen was here to put snickers down...she looked at benny and cliff and gave us some recommendations for them. benny has already started on the cartrophen injections and i picked up a depo injection for cliff so hopefully he too will feel better soon.
tristie has been swiping routinely at the staff..she was pretty damn nice to me tonight when i showed her the temptation bag.
everyone else seems to be doing ok...papa john and fergus got into a minor, verbal, non violent argument over a toy while we were watching xfactor...fergus won and he never gets to win so he was happy about that.
i think joey is not screaming today so that is good too.
and the monolithic morons..june and pugsley, ripped the shit out of something while we were watching xfactor..not sure what it was cuz it is in so many little peices it is too hard to tell.
anyway...some good things have been happening as well as some not so great and that is pretty damn normal for life at saints.
