Not a Happy Ending

January 25th, 2017 at 04:19 pm

Sweet little puppy did not make it. :'( She fought hard for 6 days, but in the end I think her injuries got the best of her. Despite her beginning to perk up, she started coughing blood and died within a day. Her punctured lung must have been too severe. Husband and I tearfully buried her last night.

I am horribly sad, but I know I did everything I could, and I am glad she is no longer suffering.

On to financial news:

I have all my W2's back and am ready to submit my taxes after double checking them again. I'm getting back $500.

Also, our loan was APPROVED! Our siding and windows are being ordered today, and there should be some actual construction going on within 2 weeks. I am super nervous about staying in budget. Additional things have already come up that need to be done such as a new front door... No extras unless we can pay cash! So let the scrimping begin.

Construction guys are very nice and are going to let us help with as much as we can to cut down on labor. I'll be shopping around for the best deals asap. We've already picked out our flooring (which is a bit of a splurge, but we are going to install ourselves) Saturday, we are going to go look at some home stores and window shop for tile, fixtures, lighting, etc. Just to start narrowing down prices. We are making a list of everything we need to save for, since we are trying to keep all finishes off the loan.

    I'm sorry. I've never been able to save a kit that was stepped on my mama either. It can really gut you.

    So sad about loss of puppy. You certainly did everything possible. Have the other pups forever homes lined up awaiting their release date?

    So excited that your house project is going forward. New windows will reduce draft and reduce heating costs long term. Be sure to take before, between and completion photos...telling the story of your house. I notice many people are writing favorite scripture on main posts and beams behind the drywall. What do you think?
