padding the chemo budget

When we considered dog insurance years ago we dismissed it fairly quickly. Why was that again? And I am wondering now if we ever thought "hmm, we could just get it for the dog that weighs 130 pounds" since veterinary medicine is priced by weight. But no, we didn't. That seems downright silly now. But hindsight is indeed 20/20. Luckily the Preachers treatments are paid for at each visit vs. one lump sum. The one lump sum would scare the bajeezus out of me. But the weekly visits seem more do-able. But they also mean that each week I am frantically thinking of ways to work harder, make more jewelry, and stick to my spend strike. Hello Closeout page! Right now the metalsgirl closeout page is pretty chalk full of jewels at great prices. I have big time incentive to mark 'em down and get 'em out! So if you need some gift, wanna do some early holiday shopping, or just need a little recession priced gift for yourself or your sweetie - there are goodies galore!
