Just call me Uncle Moneybags...

Ok - so those of you following my AC troubles may not believe this, but the dang unit is OUT again today!!! It worked well through the night, but then went kaput sometime around 2pm. Eddie, my angel, will be back out before dark to see if he can diagnose the trouble. Another $175 service call.... Says he thinks it could be the compressor. Add about $2500 to that bill...

And then today we took our beloved first born, our furbaby Madison, to the vet for a removal of what is most likely a skin cancer on the end of her nose. $560. This is on top of the $277 we paid about 10 days ago for a battery of xrays and some medication for her hips. Actually, to be specific, its her elbows. Didn't even know dogs had elbows till I had this one... but they do, and hers are bad. Could do reconstructive surgery on her elbows - akin to ACL surgery. That's about $2000. Nope - we will drug her to our best ability and spare her the cutting! She IS 7.5 already - Berners average life span is 8 - 10.

So, the brilliant idea I had for Steve for Father's Day will just have to wait. Again. I swear, I feel like I am living in the money pit!

Oh man, what a bummer! I hope it is fixed by now and it doesn't go out again!

I hope Madison is doing OK today. Last summer we took our cat to a feline cardiologist to the tune of $500. Did you even know that there were feline cardiologists? Neither did we.
