    I'd offer to introduce you to the super hot, super laid back guy with the boxer and the Lamborghini that picked up his dog the other day, but I think I'll just save that one for me. :p

    No, that's okay Jeep. I wanted to miss class and be stranded in a township park for 45 minutes this morning. I thank you for blowing up your transfer case and dropping your drive shaft in the middle of the road.

    If you're going to ask me if everything is ok, if we need anything, etc, don't just ignore me when I tell you that no, everything is not ok. My life is crumbling in front of my face. We were flood victims and got hit hard. I lost my car, a good portion of my expensive grooming equipment, and quite a few other things that don't worry me quite as much to the stupid flooding. I have to move way sooner than I had planned because of my RELIGION. I have no job lined up in Arizona, no place to live except with my parents, and I can't get this knot out of my stomach. I've cried until I can't any more, and I just want to jump off a cliff right now. Insurance company it's dragging their feet on admitting that it's their fault that my car was stolen by THEIR tow truck driver, though they're now checking to see if repairing the rear end damage, ECM and the damage to the inside will cost more than the car is worth so they have to total it out what is going to happen. I just want MY van, not a new one. MINE. All of this will probably end up putting the repair, if they do it, finished AFTER we leave. Jon is having trouble getting a VA transfer and his surgery still isn't scheduled.

    I quit.

    I'm filled with panic. It's hormonal. Irrational. But it feels real all the same and it's really hard. I've been on the verge of panic/tears all day. Bullshit. Hate this. Someone spay me.

    I tried to call you back a few times that night but your phone kept going right to voicemail...?

    I have negative motivation at work today. It didn't help that I read my schedule wrong and got here at 9am, realized I was supposed to be here at 1pm, went home and then just, blah.

    I fell in love with the area we went to on vacation. It is just the type of place I'd love to raise a family but I know we can never live there. I think he would be happier where we are versus there anyway. Any time I've ever mentioned moving away to my Mom, she makes me feel so guilty.

    Oh well. Guess there are always vacations.

    Jeeps throttle randomly started sticking. It's at the garage but they need to research what to so about it... And see about where to find a part. Lovely.

    And my five foster kittens are off/on dehydrated and I'm now getting up every 2 hours to feed the dehydrated ones. Kill me. But please keep them I'm mind if you have any extra vibes. They're only about 16 days old now. :(

    There was a horribly tragic accident here this morning, involving a bus and a train. So many people on my Facebook are just being... rude and mean about it. The things that are being said. I feel horrible for the driver's family that now has to deal with his death (I saw the bus, and feel pretty safe assuming he was killed on impact) and the comments being made.

    On top of that, I'm horribly anxious about taking the bus to work :( I'm always anxious on the bus anyway, and there are no train tracks on the way to work, even, and yet ..

    So true. Everyone is blaming the driver for driving into the train, though everything is inconclusive. Some witnesses are even stating that the bus wasn't moving. Even if it was, who's top say he didn't have something happen to him?

    Argh.

    Not a ranting vent, but I had to leave work because my kiddo's daycare said he had diarrhea. I've had him home and as of yet no such issues. Sigh.

    I go back to work after the lad gets off work, which breaks up my day and is annoying.

    We have our club's first conformation trial in March, and we need ALL paperwork in by the 1st of October...and nobody wants to step up and be chairperson. I DID find someone to be secretary for me. I'm still acting secretary, but I needed someone else on the paperwork since secretary and chairperson can't show their dogs (STUPID!), but I'm going to basically teach her the job as we go, so she can REALLY do it next time. But if someone doesn't step up to be chairperson SOON, we're going to be screwed. We have 30+ members and all we need is a name to put down - everything else we'll walk them through step by step and babysit them for. We've had such major problems with participation from our club members, it's really discouraging :(

    My dog just bit me. Hard. In the face. My lip is split and the inside of my nostril just stopped bleeding.

    I know she was just being a dog, and I know for some dogs it'd be a normal response, but this isn't the relationship we had. I'm reeling. And sobbing. She was the constant, the love in my life, the loyal one who watched my back, and I feel like that's gone. On my end. Things are not going to be the same, and I don't know if I can rationalize it enough to put aside my own human emotional response.

    Oh gosh, RD :( :( :( Is everything okay physically with her? Are you sure there's not a medical reason behind it?

    She is healthy, but her behavior hasn't been managed well and she's dealt with a lot of inconsistencies between me and my roommate. I continued to treat her like the well-raised service dog I trusted with my life and really now she's just some Joe Schmo's pet dog with a bunch of the same issues every Joe Schmo has to deal with in their pets.

    Just need to see her differently, is all, and not put so much trust in an animal.
