Hello All..I am trying to hang in there. I have been very busy doing things outside. I had a day where I slept all day. I havent really had the time to write in my journal. My cat drug in a fledgling from outside. I felt so sorry for him. He was bleeding a little and was missing some feathers. He was still alive when he brought him in. That was the sad part of it all. I tried very hard to take care of him. I fed him mealy worms. He ate really good but he passed away despite my efforts. I actually cried when he died. I felt so sad for the baby bird. I know it was only a bird but to me all life matters even the small ones.
An aquaintence of ours was give an eviction notice for thier trailor. They have 30 days to move out. They had a dog they needed to get out of there right away. They asked me to take him in for them. I ended up going to pick him up. I had only talked to her online so I didnt really know her very well. She gave me directions and I went to pick the dog up. When I got there, I could not beleive the condition this poor dog was in. He is so skinny that you can feel his ribs and back bond and hips. He is missing hair from his tail and and he has sores all over him. I felt so bad for him. Believe me it was a blessing that they had to get adopt him out. I was going to find him another home but right now he is in too bad of condition to be adopted out to anyone. He in a wonderful dog. He gets along with my dogs and the kids very well. He follows me around everywhere. I put some medicine I had left over from the last dog I took in that had skin problems over a year ago. I hope it works. I know that I really should not have taken him in because of my financial difficulties but once again I just couldnt say no. I am actually glad that i didnt become friends with the lady in person instead of just online. I dont want to be friends with someone who would let a dog get like this. He is such a great companion dog. I wish people would understand if they take a dog in, they should take responsibilty for his care. I have seen this so many times. It is so very sad.
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. I have been outside most of the time. Some days I dont even feel like getting out of bed but I make myself. I have been hanging in there the best I can. I am going to call for a job tomorrow. I really hope I get it. It is a waitressing job at this small resturant. It isnt much but it is something. I am really nervous because with my social anxiety this is going to be a challenge for me.
I was even looking at a college catalog for a nearby college. I am 38 years old and I realize I dont even know what I want to do for a living when I grow up. It is really sad. I know I need to get my GED first and then I am going to go finally. I think I am going to go for the nursing career. I really like helping people.
I am trying to type while my cat whiskers is sitting on me. He picks now to want attention. When I am not doing anything, he doesnt want to sit with me. When I read he is the worst. He rubs up against my book and makes it impossible to even read. He is a doll though. We love him. We have five cats that kind of wondered here. Whiskers, smokey, Tigger, Rascals, and our little Mouser. I have three dogs as well. I have Billy, Bear and now I have Chewy. Billy is 13 years old but still thnk he is a puppy. He is always bugging to go for walks. He is crazy. He loves water and loves to swim. We love to take him to the park to swim in the river. It is good for his joints.
Right now my dream is to fence in my 4 acres of unused property and may raise a couple of cattle for food and extra money. I would love to have the property make some money. It is just a dream but maybe someday. I will stop rambling now and close my entry for today. Stay safe everyone!!
