Taketh away

It seems that what the lord gives so easily, he also takes away.
Yeasterday I thanked jesusfor all my keen shopping discounts. I wanted to thank him even though I knew I deserved them because it felt like the polite thing to do.
Then this morning he decided to punish me.
Maybe he has a thing for uppity former smokers, I don’t know.
This morning Maddie started taking great big bloody shits on the carpeting. 8am I’m out of bed on a saturday cleaning up bloody shit and frantically calling the vet to beg to be let in today.
After many tears and much freaking the fuck out…she’s going to be okay. She’s got colitis and it seems she may have eaten something that upset her belly so she stopped eating and blah blah blah I don’t care. She’s going to be fine.
She’s going to be fine and she cost me all my savings.
Fuck. This is 3 times in as many months those dogs have wiped out what little reserves I can manage to put together. My insurance company is just going to have to wait a little bit before I can pay off the deductible for my surgery.
Dog are fucking expensive but they’re cheaper than putting kids through college and I know they are worth every cent i put into them.
