Wah Wah Waaaaahh...

Normally I'm such a happy non-complaining person. Today, I've reached my limits. This is the bummer post, you can stop reading now, and go to the previous post, which might make you cry, but only because you are soft and mushy. If you stick with me, don't say I didn't warn you.

Today, Linus was blind when he woke up, which meant that he didn't have an eye infection and the medication he was taking wasn't going to do anything. He most likely has uveitis, a wonderful thing Golden Retrievers get. The joys of having a pure bred dog.
While it's nice to have an idea of what it might be, it's not good. He's only a baby, 3 yrs. old. 3 was supposed to be the year he calmed down, started listening to us, and learned we are the pack leaders, it's not supposed to be the year he loses his eyes.

And... our computer died, most likely the hard drive gave out. I'm not finished my taxes, there's stuff I needed on there. Sure, who doesn't want a new computer? But on my time, not because the hard drive wanted a vacation. I believe I backed up last week. But right now, I don't even care. And I can't get the pictures off my camera so I can show you the saddest dog ever.

And...a few months ago, the washing machine was leaking and Kerry fixed it. While complaining to our financial advisor about my sad life, I stepped in a puddle, one made by the washing machine. Who needs clean clothes?

And...the furnace makes noise, it has been for awhile but it still works, we were trying to make it last as long as we could, well, now it's making more noises. Who needs heat?

And...my Grandpa, he's old. Let's not go there.

And...Kerry's aunt is having problems with her kidney transplant. His other aunt has lymphatic cancer of something. We don't know all the details.

And...today was my mom's first day back to work after the mysterious brain bleeding, and she was in high spirits, so help me if she didn't have a good day, I'll pull my ears off.

And to make it worse, I am starting to think Michael Buble is cute. He was funny on SNL. Oh, I need a vacation. Calgon take me away!
Wah Wah Waaaaahhh.....

This post sucks! Where is my dislike button!! Remember, things can only get better from here. And it could be worse, your throat could be on fire like mine! Hope Linus gets better on his meds, poor baby :(

I am sorry that things are rotten right now - only way to go is up from here! Hang in there and I have my fingers crossed that things with Linus improves quickly. And Michael Buble does have his moments of cute-ness...

Aww...such sad news. Sometimes life just sucks. Good thing it doesn't stay that way...this is a down time but hopefully soon there will be an upswing in good stuff. Poor Linus.

We're not having a great wk either. D's mom passed away on Sunday so we have our share of sadness around here this wk too.

Here's hoping to brighter days!

Oh man, when it rains it pours. I feel bad for your poor dog. Mine was blind, but he was 14 years old. I hope he can adapt. I'm sure he will, he's young. Oh, by the way, my big dog (Sophie, boxer mix) is 6 years old and still acts like a puppy, she's a nut! Hope you have a great weekend, you deserve it.
