So on top of all the stuff going on with my little sister, I noticed yesterday evening that my Chihuahua had a swollen anal sac...but the vet was already closed, so I figured I'd call in the morning to make him an appointment....4 hours later it ruptured...the poor little guy. So I took him in as soon as the vet opened this morning, without an appointment, because fuck that, he's in pain and at risk for infection. Well I got all kinds of attitude from the vet staff for bringing him in without an appointment....even though I told them I could leave him there the whole day until they could fit him in. And now I can count on at least a $50 bill, probably more, when I pick him up. Ugh. Just FML. When it rains, it pours, right? At this point, I'll just be happy if I pass my glucose test on the 8th.
ETA: I just picked him up and the actual vet was super nice. She put him on some antibiotics and pain meds and said he should be fine, but it'll take a few days to heal. And the bill was $126...and I have to bring him back in a week, which will be a minimum of another $65. I'm in a living hell right now.

Okay, so this is a Wednesday BF. But I just found out that my SIL apparently mailed out invites to my baby shower in two batches. My in-laws all received their invites a good month+ out. So they're all making arrangements to come. These are people I'm not super close with, my husband has a friendly but mostly arms-length approach to them. The group of people in the town I live in? The dear friends whom I wanted very badly to come? The invites are trickling in now, and the shower is 2 weeks away. Half of them are too busy, they can't arrange childcare without more notice. I'm so mad at my SIL. I didn't even want a shower to begin with, and now it's looking like it's going to be populated almost exclusively by people who I have a strained and lukewarm relationship with. Especially since My SIL is co-organizing the shower with someone else, and they both really really wanted to do the shower invites. My SIL insisted she handle the invites.
