Random Notes

  • I just found out my contract has been extended through March 31st at my job.  I'm extremely grateful since it was supposed to originally end December 31st.  My friend works there too and her email said that her contract may be extended beyond March 31st.  My email didn't say that.  Still, I'm just grateful to know I'll be working for a little while longer.
  • Shiver is doing OK.  He still breathes heavily sometimes, although not as often as he was before .  I was supposed to bring him back this week to run some tests but my paycheck was short and I can't afford it so it'll have to wait until next payday.  The higher dosage of meds seem to be helping more, even though he's still not 100% normal.  
  • It was suggested by a couple of people that I create a Go Fund Me for Shiver.  I did that for Chico and feel bad about doing it again for Shiver.  It's hard to admit you need help.  I'll wait until we see the vet first and find out what treatment options are available, then think about it some more.  I hate not being able to afford to get him the care he so desperately needs.
  • So one of my two New Year's Resolutions is to pay forward some of the kindnesses that have been bestowed upon me in recent years. Does anyone have any ideas on fun and/or unique things that I can do? I'm looking for suggestions beyond opening the door for someone or buying a coffee for the person in line behind me. Please keep in mind that I'm credit card and student loan poor so I can't do anything too extravagant.

I'm really glad that you had your contract extended and hope you manage to find a job straight away in March.
I think it is an excellent idea to set up a Go Fund Me page for Shiver and will be happy to contribute something, I know how hard it was to afford the vet bills when Bridge was ill.
Is there an elderly person you could maybe go to the supermarket for some shopping near you?

A compliment or a kind word costs nothing but can do so much to brighten up another's day. I make a point of trying to do this everyday.

Glad your contract has been extended that is pawesome news!!

Maybe donate some small items each week to a local shelter?? Ours posts needs on their little sign so we know what to pick up on our way to town.

Sometimes it's nice to help in the local hospital, maybe visiting folks that don't get visitors. It would be great for a sick person if they also love pets and can discuss them.

Congratulations on your job extension! If you want to pay it forward you can give someone a genuine compliment, let a car into your lane of traffic, keep an extra umbrella at work and loan it out when it rains, or (if you come into a couple of extra dollars) buy dog food and donate it to the animal shelter
