I JUST GOTTA VENT
Friday, February 29, 2008
It's ironic that I came in here yetserday to bitch about how much 2008 has sucked so far, because last night when I was walking my dog Loki, a smaller dog basically came out of nowhere and just locked on to him.
Now, Loki's a big puppy. He's a medium to large dog, all muscles and mouth, but at not quite two years of age, he's a big pup.
So Loki welcomed the strange dog all excitedly. He just wants to play.
The other dog just locked on, and I just tried desperately to separate them.
Loki, bless him, was actually wagging his tale, and I swear, at one time, he was actually trying to hump on the aggressor. But the aggressor was all snapping turtle and just didn't wanna let go. Not sticks, rope, a hose...nothing would separate them.
Some 15 minutes later (that felt like an eternity), mostly due to neighbors that got involved (thank God!), we finally separated the dogs, and the stray was taken away with a rope.
Loki had blood everywhere, but what seemed to be superficial wounds, which he was too squirmy to let me properly apply hydrogen peroxide to.
I was worried about him, so I took him to the emergency vet, and a couple of shots, some meds, some ugly spradic shaving, a few stitches or staples, I forget which, and $435 later, I was able to take Loki home.
He'll be fine, but the whole thing was ugly and messy and scary, considering that it was a smaller dog than Loki...what if it had been a big one?

It really seems that so far, 2008 has really, really sucked.
I mean, I know I think life sucks in general, but it really seems 2008 just sucks that much harder!
I think things have gotten so bad that I actually am making myself sick, you know, psychologically.
I believe that's called psycho-somatic, if memory serves, which mine usually doesn't...

So, let us review:
My relationship of three years is quickly dissolving, and will likely very soon be over.
My job of ten years is unraveling at breakneck speed, and will very likely soon be over.
My debt has become practically insurmountable.
My health is not the best considering it's been a solid twenty plus years of unhealthy living.
Oh, and there's more.
Trust me. There's always more...
So yeah, life's a peach.

So, since my last entry, oh so long ago, nothing has changed.
At least not for the better.
Of course I have done nothing to change anything, so, well, duh.
If I don't make the effort to make the changes, they sure as Hell aint gonna fix themselves.
Would be pretty fucking nice if it did work that way, though...
