  1. My life over the last 4 months

    I posted the other day about it being awhile - here are the reasons, all good! We filed adoption papers for a new puppy, Suki, a Brittany who was a rescue from MO in early April and after we got all the home inspections done, vet recommendations and got the go ahead with a transport date of May 23 we made an offer on a new house which was accepted. We signed the P&S paperwork on the 27th the same day Suki arrived out of quarantine. Wow - now I needed to pack and move my household to a new place ...

I actually had my surgery on 1/13/14, but my doctor is trying to get all my appointments done this year; so I'll have my "one year" visit a month early.
