and to think, i had only asked for $2,400 ... I should really stop underestimating myself. And they should have just paid me that while they had the chance.
I feel so vindicated. and right. I feel completely right. vengeance is mine. Bwahaha.
Central still has 15 days to appeal. If they don't, then i have to work on collecting from them. And then i have to go shopping.
If they do appeal, i'll continue to fight for it.
Lots of ups and downs at work last night. A successful c-section - eleven fat healthy pups. But the mom didn't do well after surgery, and as i was leaving the doctor was going back into surgery to see if she was bleeding internally.
Oscar was the cat I've been taking care of since saturday night. His liver was failing, his kidneys had started to fail, he wasn't digesting food, and the poor thing was so miserable. I gave him lots of love, and the (crazy) owners decided to euthanize him early this morning. It was sad ... i got all misty, despite the loud, psychotic, annoying owners.
Eleven squirming, squeaking, pink little puppies. It was too much.
Watching stephinextremis peel placenta and mucus from said puppies as they were tossed at as from the surgery room ... that was also quite too much.
Second tattoo removal session this morning. I stopped the nurse halfway through.
"Something's wrong. This hurts a lot more than last time."
"Oh, as it fades, we turn up the strength of the laser for each session."
So I've got some good stuff to look forward to, yup. Three or so more sessions of agonizing pain. All because when i was seventeen and very, very spun, i thought that it would be a cute tattoo.
I should go to bed, as i am allowing myself three hours of sleep today so that i have time to go out. Yay for time management.
