stupid dogs!!!!!!

ok so we are like moving right?! and since we are moving furniture and all that the garage door has been left open.............well.........guess what other door was left open all day.............ALL OF THEM...........so..........guess who ran away?? AGAIN...........it is going to cost almost $500 to get them out of the pound.....read this post to hear about last time ...last time it was $375..........we said last time there would be NO next time....that is just outrageous and we are a family of 6! that is a lot of $$$ to be spending on dogs......never mind how much they have cost us besides all that. Yes I realize they do cost money but we are talking a couple of thousand now!!! that is stupid.

Oh man I am mad, mad that no one thought to put them in their kennels while the doors were open. Mad that no one thought to close any outside doors. Mad that they run away. Mad at the cost to get them out of the pound. Mad because I love them so much I am tempted to spend the $$$. Mad cuz I know when we move to the acreage there are no fences to keep the dogs in and do I want that constant worry about where the dogs are. Mad that the girls are going to be upset. Mad cuz we feel like bad parents for not getting them out. Mad that I have SO much to do and now I am feeling bad/sad/mad about the dogs.

I guess you get the point.

I don't know what we should do? We had a hard time spending the $375 last time!! We are thinking right now that we might take the chance and wait the 11 days and then have someone else go and adopt them for us............that will be cheaper! I think to adopt a dog it is between $80-$100. Ah man, I just feel like I am going to be sick!! this day has not been good, between J locking the keys in the jeep and our spare keyless entry thingy not working even with a new battery, so we had to pay $45 to a towing company to break in even, J having to go back and re-do a job he did, out of his own pocket, cuz some moron complained that the dirt was too close to the tree!!!!! and was worried the roots of the tree wouldn't be able to breath... WHAT??? and moving stuff to our storage bin all day....packing and trying to do 10 loads of laundry.......waiting to hear back from our broker so we can remove the subjects, that HAVE to come off today, then wait the next 48 hours to see if the other people are able to remove theirs...............I feel weary. I did wake up hearing "don't be anxious but with prayer and supplication make your requests known to God"........I don't know if that is how that scripture goes or if I have put a couple together!! not good......anyways I must not be anxious.......how?.......oh by praying some more and pouring it out to God......... right?..... going to go do that and cry on my bed.

Bless you! I hope you get a really good night's sleep after all that mess and emotion. Moving is so stressful sometimes.

My View on Stuff said...

I say do it the cheapest way possible because you have enough drama in your life and have to pack and move see it as a vacation or alternative while packing one less thing to worry about right

Yikes that's a lot of $$ - I'm reminded again why I don't have animals...

What kind of storage facility are you putting your stuff into?

Geesh. Aren't tree roots usually underground anyway?? How do they breath there? Weird. Sorry you're having a bad day. Remember, this too shall pass.

I'm with you with this stress of moving. I'm paying a fortune, every month to keep my junk in a Pod Storage Unit while my house is being shown. In the past 6 months, maybe 5 people have viewed my house. I'm about to offer to pay one year of real estate taxes to any buyer.

And your dogs? That's a lot of money to shell out.

I'm thinking of selling one of my kidneys right about now.

Moving is just so hectic isn't it? I've did it five times since Justin and I have been married...

Oh, poor Sweetie. I'm so sorry. Why do these stupid dogs run off like that? Aren't they supposed to be smarter than cats? Well apparently not. Our chow has done that to us too. So frustrating, I know. I'll pray that they will come back home on their own - and especially for peace to fall on you. When mom's not happy, no one's happy!

I'm so sorry about the dogs and the money and all the stress about your house/moving!!

Our friends had that same thing happen with their dog...he was contantly running away and they were having to pay to get him out of the pound. They ended up leaving him there and not telling the kids. Of course the kids would be heart broken everytime he ran away...which was a lot, so they just decided to let him go. I think it was hard, but after the decision was made they were glad and relieved.

I'll keep you and your family in my prayers!!
