I feel like my life recently has been so stressful that I am just hanging on by my fingernails.
We recently adopted a puppy. She was with a rescue down in Georgia and was transported up here to us. Unfortunately, along the way, she was injured and fractured her growth plate. We had no choice but to get a $3,500 surgery for a puppy that we had for less than a week.
Dealing with that and the healing process has been stressful to say the least. The only orthopedic surgeon for dogs is about an hour away from our house, so I have to take off work to take her to appointments. Thankfully, she is SUCH a sweetheart and so good in the car, so that hasn't been a problem.
She just got the all-clear from the surgeon on Friday, so she got to take off her cone and can start running and playing again. That's a HUGE relief!
I started to feel like life was finally settling down and I was getting into my routine. I have knitting group twice a week at our brand spankin' new local yarn store, I have been reading more, and keeping up with things at home.
Now, my sister is having problems and I have to sub in to help. Her car needs work, she left her job (well, she was basically forced to), and she is going to school full time. I love my sister and there isn't a thing I wouldn't do for her. That being said, MAN I'm exhausted.
When is life just going to be quiet and easy? I thought that was a thing.
