All because a little bug went ah-choo

All because a little bug went ah-choo was totally my favorite Dr. Seuss book.at least I think it was a Dr. Seuss's book?!........ yesterday's events made me think of this book and the ripple effects of life!

I lost my house key on Tuesday..........don't know how it happened? one minute it was there then it just wasn't............I was so busy cleaning that I don't know HOW it happened......it just did..........

because I lost my house key I made J give me his and I was going to go get it cut.............

because he didn't have a house key when he got soaked from working outside in the rain yesterday he came home and couldn't get in the front door

because he couldn't get in the front door he went round to the side of the house and climbed over our gate.....

because he climbed over our gate he knocked a piece of wood loose...........

because he knocked a piece of wood loose the dogs got out........... both of them

because the dogs got out and they are well..........dogs....without thought or reason.......they ran

because they ran.............all over town being spotted and thankfully avoiding tires and such..........they got picked up by the local pound...........

because they BOTH got picked up from the pound........I got a phone call........$175 to get Shelby out and $150 to get Jackson out (they told me next time Jackson gets in the pound it will cost me $200!!! can we say money grab?? come on say it with me......mo-ney gr-ab............ugh

because of that phone call............I lost my cool and yelled and screamed and...........said unmentionables..........I was pretty angry..........there was no break they could give??? money grabbers, that's right I said it.....money grabbers.........

because I was upset the girls were upset................because the girls were upset............I was upset............

because of being upset...............I got a tummy ache.........yesterday was an emotional day for me between crying about Morgan and my dad and meeting with the mom's of the girls that have been giving M a hard time!! (which we didn't end up sitting down together the councilor took over..........thank goodness.........I was a wreck emotionally and didn't want to cry in front of the other mom's)..........

because we can't just leave the silly overly expensive now dogs in the pound..........I had to try to figure out where I am going to find $325!!!! I think I did.....thank goodness for family being willing to lend some $$$.............

all because I lost a $3.00 key!!!!!!!!

that is one expensive key!!! and an end to an emotionally and financially expensive day!!
