I just found out this morning that my daughter, who is taking a shift for a co-worker today, is doing this because the 28 year old co-worker won $1,000,000 a couple of weeks ago in the lottery. Can you even imagine that? I think about all the debts that I could pay off, the tuition payments that I could relieve my girls of, the surgery that my dog would benefit from (more on that later). the trip to Europe that I’d love to take my girls on, and so much more, and I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m jealous. It’s been reported that she plans to buy a new house, a new car, and take some fantasy vacations. What would you do if you won $1,000,000?
Okay, so back to my poor little doggy. He’s a 12-year-old yellow lab, not so little at approx 80 lbs, and he’s beginning to show signs of arthritis. Last night and today he is having a hard time getting up and down the stairs and finding it difficult to get up after laying for a prolonged amount of time. He’s even having trouble squatting to go to the washroom. It makes me so sad. Other than that he’s so full of life. He’s still a big puppy and I don’t want him to be in pain. I’ve been doing a lot of research online and after speaking to my vet it was recommended to at least start giving him glucosamine once a day which can help to relieve the pain and build the joints back up. We’re also going to build a ramp so that he can get up and down the stairs more easily. Sometimes surgery is necessary but I hope it doesn’t come to that because we could never afford it. Is it silly to ask for prayers for my dog-baby?
I’m trying to make some headway on the 100 cards in 100 days challenge as time is quickly running out. I have just over a month to complete this challenge and I don’t like giving up. So I spent some time making some cards and I’m showcasing 3 of them today. Two of these cards are double fold pocket cards. The other one is just a variation of it. These make cards #30, 31, & 32 for the challenge.
