long week behind and ahead

Have you tried to refinance your home lately?
OMG what a pain in the butt!

I don't even think we had to jump through this many
hoops when we bought our business three years ago.
The filling out and or gathering of paperwork (lots of paperwork),
 the faxing back and forth.

All of it has been stressing me out a little;~(

But apparently we are now on the home stretch.
The last email we got from our mortgage guy said all we have to do now is have our
water tested to make sure it is drinkable (HUH?)
and have our septic tested (?)
It's not like we are just buying this house (and water) or selling it,
we have lived in this house for 10 years and drank the water every single day
and we're still standing,  but if that's what they need I'm all over it.
And I'm not sure how they test a septic. In my experience it either works
or it doesn't (eww). And ours does.
But I guess I will see if I can find out who does that kind of thing and have it done.

On top of all of this crap, I woke up this morning at 5am
to this strange thumping noise coming from the dining room
which is directly above the bedroom. 
I could hear this thumping and then the sound of my Honey's
 voice. I couldn't really hear anything he was saying just
the tone of his voice and it wasn't good.
I tore out of bed and ran upstairs to find Honey sitting
on the floor with my baby boy  Scooby Doo.
Scooby was in the middle of having a seizure.
It was terrifying.
After some research today I found out that it is not uncommon
for dogs to have seizures but he is nine years old
and this has never happened before.
He seems to be OK now but first thing in the morning I will calling the vet
to beg for an appt. ASAP.

On the creative front...

I finished my tubular peyote necklace and
I strung a necklace with my favorite "orphan beads"
that I got from Juls.
Bet you'd  never guess I like earth tones☺

I am now off to have a nice stiff drink while I make dinner.


  1. OMG, how scary. Older dogs do get seizures (Fiona has had a couple) and I know how frighten you become seeing your fur baby going through that. I know you Scobby will be okay.

    As for refinancing...never had them ask me about drinkable water, but that was 6 years ago...what else they going to ask you? How long do the light bulbs last?

    once again...hugs coming to you

  2. Sorry about you dog...hope he is ok. Our dogs are our family...especially at nine years old.

  3. Oh Pat, sending you oodles and boodles of love. My heart breaks for your Scooby Doo. Our fur babies are something really special, so I completely feel your pain. I hope your vet can find answers for you today!

    As for the refinance... the whole real estate industry has changed. There's no "easy" transaction or refinance anymore.

    I'm sending you a bit 'o irish luck this week. Hope everything works out much better!
