We have been fighting this since Saturday and we both kinda new it was inevitable, my mom's cat Muffin (Sassy's sister) nee to be put to sleep today. We bought her time since Satuday to give my mom more time with her to say good-bye since she went downhill so quickly. and it is time to say good bye. we are going after work to the vets. my mom is taking alf a day so she can spend the afternoon with her. she is very upset Muffin is her best friend just as Sassy is mine. mom is going to have her cremated as well, she will just need to make arrangements for this.
The Rainbow Bridge
By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,
Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.
Where the friends of man and woman do run,
When their time on earth is over and done.
For here, between this world and the next,
Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.
On this golden land, they wait and they play,
Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.
No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,
Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.
They romp through the grass, without even a care,
Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.
All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,
Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.
For just at that instant, their eyes have met;
Together again, both person and pet.
So they run to each other, these friends from long past,
The time of their parting is over at last.
The sadness they felt while they were apart,
Has turned into joy once more in each heart.
They embrace with a love that will last forever,
And then, side-by-side, they cross overÖ together.

I have been slacking with posting monthly goals, and last month was a bad month for really anything. The stress of Sassy bein ill and the high heat put the brakes on a lot of things. I am hoping there aren't as bad high heats days this month and I hope that Sassy continues to do well and hang in there and hopefully I can get back on track with everything and step up and hit my goals.
1. Reach 1750 in fitness minutes, to make up for the slack in July.
2. Bring lunch to work with me at least 4 times a week.
3. NO McDonaldís, Sonicís, Taco Bell, etc, no fast food at all this month.
4. Take a weekend to go through and reorganize and keep or toss items at Gramís.
5. Take a weekend to go through and organize and toss things in my room.
6. Have a fun day at Peddlerís Village at their sidewalk sale, finish up any left over Christmas Shopping
7. Cut back on unhealthy snacks.

Woohoo!!!! It is kinda great right now. My excel spreadsheet financial debt reduction plan has worked its magic with me with a huge help from taking a pension loan out against myself.
Capital One: $0
Chase Slate: $0
Chase Disney: $0
Pension Loan: $2455.38
Woohoo!!!! Doen from almost $7000. Braces will be done by August 5. YES! Mom will be done by the end of December and my car will be done by end of February. My pension loan will last 18 pay checks which brings me to the end of April then I am done. I feel good that I took the loan out because I now eliminated hundreds of dollars in interest rates. I am really happy. I am feeling more comfortable. Granted Sassy will be eating a huge chunk of my money for meds and IV fluids but she is well worth it and a huge reason why I took out the loan to clear off my credit cards. Whew. Just wanted to share a new update.
Stay cool ya'll.

Well I babble about the easier thing, debt. never thought i'd ever say that debt was the easy thing to talk about. well i did what i was not wanting to do yet wanting to do. i took a loan out against my pension. $2350. I will be getting that next week and then by the end of the month, I will be mostly debt free, I will go from 2 credit cards, my mothers debt, my mother, car and braces to my mother and my car. that's it. I'll go from just under $8k to just over $5k. i'll be breathing a lot easier. my mother will be paid on by the end of december and the car in february. fun. so my 3 open credit cards will be able to be blocked off for their purposes; one for car emergencies, one in my safe as a emergency and one for Sassy/Mr. Tiger Man emergencies. so its nice to think that once everything clears and what ever left over interest is paid off by the nd of august i'll be in the green and not in the red. yes!
now the tough one...Sassy, my beautiful best friend and furbaby of 17 years, alosmt died on July 7. all week she was acting off so I made a vet appointment for friday july 8. well july 7 she was completely off. she jumped in the bath tub while the shower water was one and also fought with me to get the sink water as I was brushing my teeth and braces. she wasn't eating or drinking water other than from the fauct. when i got home form work that day she was still the same but weaker. i had stopped on my way home at petsmart about bought her other foods to try to eat and a waterer bowl (it is running water with a spout like a faucet kinda) she wasn't interested. so i called the vet back and cried and fussed to get in that night. i got a 6:15 appointment, I was there and seen within 5 minutes. they took sassy to run a chem panel to cherk her levels, mainly her kidneys. i was in the room crying hysterically for 30 mins. they put her in a cage and left me catless while they waited for the results and saw another patient. that made it worse when i saw them put her in a cage and the door slam shut, it was so final. the vet came back in (again 30 minutes later). he showed me her levels. one was just above the normal range so not too bad. the other well...the normal range is 30-36, and the machine stops reading at 130...her number was high than 130. they gave me the option of leaving her there and trying fluids, me taking her home and trying fluids, or euthanizing her. i am now giving her 100mls of sub cuetaneous fluids 1x a day for 5 day and every 3 days she gets a horse size cat pill for appetite stimulation that she just started yesterday. it's awkward and weird giving her iv fluids but she doesn't fight as much, dbf is great he helps hold and sqeeze the bag( makes the fluids go in faster and less tramatizing for both sassy and me) and i hold her in my lap and hold the needle in place. i don't care if i have to do this for everyday for years to come i will.
but my mom and chris both say that from wednesday to saturday she looks a lot better and is acting more normal. she is drinking for on her own and was evening eating better before the appetite stimulant but it is helping her by doing it this way. she goes back on tuesday and hopefully we will have better news.
well going to get the laundry out. and get back to Sassy.
keep her in your prayers if you can. i love her and will be lost without her.

I am still in the mood to clean and throw out stuff...everyone's except my own lol. After recouperating from a 3 day cleaning binge I am feeling better. But I thought about it today how I have been putting off going through and re-organizing the stuff at my grandmother's that is mine. So I think this weekend I am going to try to do that. Friday is my Grandpa's bday so we are going up to the cemetary to visit him. I miss him so much still.
Saturday is date night....omg that is a shocker. DBF wants to take me out to a nice dinner for a date! wow. 8 yrs later he still wants to occasionally date me lol. W are going to The Melting Pot, no way to eat healthy there lol but it'll be well worth it.
So Saturday day time or Sunday I'll clean at my grandmotherws hopefully.
