Goodbye, Oak :(

This early afternoon Eli said, "Oak doesn't look so good." This is what she was doing. Just laying there. She wouldn't move. I got a soft towel (rag) for her to lay on. [I had a feeling she wasn't going to get any better :(  ]  It wasn't long after I took this picture, she squeaked at Eli. Not longer after that, she died.  I can't believe it. I know hamsters don't live long. And I don't know how old she was when we got her. It's just so sad. 

Our power went out today. Well I called the electric company. She told me what to do. (Flip the breaker switch.. Okay I don't know anything, all right?.)  Well I noticed it was not getting any cooler... Then, it was really, really warm... I called the electric company again. They sent someone out. (It's HOT here!)  Well, apparently our AC unit is broken. (Although, somehow I still think it has something to do with the power going out.)  I called the landlord, she said to call an AC place... OF COURSE, they were closed. Not only do they close at 5, they close at 3???  Ugh!! Well I'm sorry my AC went out after business hours.    I figured out fast which windows have screens in them. :/  I hope someone can come out and fix it tomorrow. I don't know how we are going to pay for it though!!?  :(  Why does everything have to be such a pain?   I hope they can figure something out. It's supposed to get up to 109 later on...

Sweet little Oak. May she find many friends over the rainbow Bridge.

Thank you, Paula!! That means a lot to me. I have been so bummed. My kids seem to care less than I do, and she wasn't even "my" hamster. :(

Aww...maybe hamsters don't really last that long.
I hope you get that A/C working, hard to get rest when its hot :p

I'm so sorry to hear about Oak. I have lost several hamsters myself and I know how hard it is to lose a part of the family. I am sure that where ever she is right now she is swimming in hamster logs and has all the softest bedding she could ever ask for. I hope you feel better :).
