It is time for Murphy to leave my house!

January 8th, 2015 at 08:12 am


So far this month…and it is only the 8th!!!!!!

$720 for heating and plumbing emergencies caused by cold weather

$150 to fix and seal up a window that developed a leak around the edges - caused by cold weather

$1898 for auto breakdowns (2 cars in the same month)

$190 and climbing for vet bills - Little dog had a seizure. Hopefully won't have another one but needs to go back in 2 weeks for another blood test.

Also had to put down a $1000 deposit to a masonry to have our fireplace rebuilt. They obviously can't do it in the current -2degree weather but they wanted a deposit to order the bricks etc and hold our spot for the work when the weather finally warms up.

Gosh it seems to pile up sometimes.

    It does pile up. We've had months like this. It makes me want to cry. But what's the alternative? Waiting to do repairs until it gets worse and costs more? Times like these I just try to be thankful we can cover it.

    We've a Shih Tzu/Bichon now 5, who has small seizures about 3 times a year. He shivers and can't walk for about 2-3 minutes. The 1st time I rushed to the vet but of course he was fine by the time I got there, [2 blocks]. There was no diagnosis no after effects, no medication . I followed up by taking much beloved pup to a specialist who gave a RX 1.5 mg/ml d Metacam. We find that sitting and holding him as close to our chest as possible calms him instantly. It's like if he can feel our heartbeat he settles. I hope you'll update us here as it really worries me.

    We had a couple months like that this year. Hope he stays away for a while.
