It is after 10 and I should be asleep but I want to write about all of the things I have finally accomplished from my never-ending chore list. Yesterday I took my dog to the vet at lunch. I was hoping to find out why he is limping but his xrays looked normal. They did a blood test too so maybe that will shed some light on his problem. I was expecting it to cost around $300. They gave me an estimate between $450 and $550. I was resigned to pay more money but then when it was all done the bill only came to $365 so I was happy even though it was more than I initially expected. Funny how that worked out.
Today I took my truck in to the mechanic to find out why it is squealing. I got an oil change while I was at it. The estimate for repairs is $1,500. That's not just for the squealing, that's also for the sluggishness when I first start it up and also new shocks. I agree to pay $800 which doesn't include the shocks because I am pretty sure my back shocks should still be under warranty from Brake Masters. I swear that back shock looked the same when I had them done a few years ago. Do you think they spray oil on it and say it is leaking fluid? I don't know how to tell if shocks are going bad. They said that my tires will wear out faster and my tires certainly have been wearing out fast. Anyway, I have an appointment for next Thursday. That will take care of a few of the problems.
After that I loaded up my momma dog and 3 puppies and headed over to the adoption event. The puppies were a big hit and 2 were adopted right away although I am waiting until Friday to deliver one of them. The other puppy was finally adopted after I brought her to their house and their dog trainer walked them through the steps for handling and training puppies. I hope it works out. They all get a 7 day trial period. I don't want any puppies returned. I am really enjoying the quiet. It was a really long day so I had better go to sleep even though I want to watch something on Netflix. Tomorrow I will try to get at least one window AC unit put in. It is much more complicated than it sounds but I am optimistic.
