10 days...

I swore 2011 was going to be a better year, ha shame on me for thinking.

In the last 10 days we have found out that our water heater has been leaking for at least 2 months causing extensive water damage, and sever mold growth. So, as of Wednesday we will have to leave the house and stay in a hotel for as few as five or as many as 10 days. All this with 2 dogs, us, a fish and a Toddler who is very in love with our DVR!!

This past Saturday night night while I was brushing Lauryn's teeth, I noticed that both of her front teeth have severe discoloration and some decay at the gum line. This does not bode well for her because of my dental history. We are on the hunt for a pediatric dentist.

Saturday was also a shit day because we came home from an outing to find our five year old Rottie girl dragging her hind legs. A trip to the Vet ER told me nothing I hadn't already figured out on my own, she was most likely paralyzed. I took her to our vet this morning only to have my fears confirmed, by a man I trust. So, today I said goodbye to one of the best dogs I have owned, one that I raised from 24 hours old, one who has been by my side through the worst of my IF battle, and the best.

The last 10 days have sucked the life out of me, it might not seem like much to some, but to me it just seems like a faster start to a shitty year....... much like the one we just kissed goodbye to. I need something to give here, things have got to start going our way.....

Praying this is the top of the hill and the rest is just an easy slide down for you!

Oh, this must be the hardest of challenges for a mother. My heart goes out to you and I will keep you in my prayers. And yes that certainly does sound like a whole lot of shit to me. And I understand how 10 days can feel like a lifetime when everything is going wrong, and always has for a ways back in time, but someday life will repay you for your tolerance. Keep it going, and I hope that many fellow bloggers provide support and comfort to your sorrows, along with, most importantly, your true friends and family. God bless you!

BIG HUGS!

I'm sorry about your rottie and all the other crap you've got going on. Hopefully 2011 is just getting it out of it's system.

oh, that's SO tough. It can be really hard to keep energy up at times like this; IF is draining, and losing a great dog is painful. I hope you feel the love coming your way from me, someone who does not know you, but shares your journey.

First--the good----I am STOKED to have found your blog again! Looks like when I changed blog layouts long ago, I lost some of my buds. I am now a "follower" and will be keeping up with your journey. (Again!)

Next--the bad---I am SO sorry to hear of the loss of your precious pet. My dog is my first "baby," and I can only imagine the heartache you are going through.

Wishing you much luck with your continuing IF journey.
