Life sucks

So new house...and the fridge explodes. Okay, it didn't really explode but it did stop working, with all of our food for the month inside of it. *sigh* We were able to save most of what was really important (read: expensive to replace) and the repairman is on his way. But that's another $150 or so spent this month.

Our cat, family pet for 10 years now, has diabetes. Brought her in to be declawed today (no one wants her scratching up the beautiful wood in this house) and the vet called to say that they can't do the surgery yet. That they discovered she's diabetic. Insulin shots every day for who knows how long (it may correct itself after a few months or it may not), plus the testing that they have to do to make sure her glucose levels don't drop too low...that's another $200 for the month.

My daughter's guinea pig passed away last night. She wasn't eating or drinking much. We just figured it was because she'd been left at the old place for a few days while we found a good spot to put her cage here. Then we figured it was the move that was stressing her out. Realized late last night that she had gunk around her eyes and was breathing heavily. It was too late to call the vet, so we planned on doing it immediately this morning. There's no need now. Cost to us? Our daughter's pain and tears over losing her beloved pet.

Which situation is the worst for me? The last one. Money is just paper. My daughter's feelings are far more important then a few hundred dollars. And in an hour she'll be home and we'll have to tell her the bad news.
