CATCHING UP

Well, what can I say. It's been a while. But, the new floor is down and stained. The windows are trimmed and stained. Baseboard will be finished on Sunday and then we can move the stuff back in. Yay!!!
I have a chance to get two more dogs. Their human daddy is losing his house and can't take them with him. To send them to the ASPCA is a death sentence and besides, they are a bunch of asses. Should have them before the end of February.
It snowed again today. About five inches and it sounds like it is sleeting now. I didn't go out to supper. Too many accidents on the scanner.
My friend Lois fell last week and broke her little finger on her left hand. Got a nice little bruise on her cheekbone and the beginnings of a black eye. She went to the hospital today and had pins put in the finger 'cause it wasn't lining up properly and was unstable.
Dad is slowly getting over his fall. He is complaining of neck pain and says that cervicle collar I took over helps a little. I think its just going to take a while.
Other than that, nothing has changed. I'm a little tired of the cold and the snow. I've shoveled the driveway out three times, and that's enuf already.
Later dudes and dudettes.....

Welcome back, glad all your projects are coming to fruition. Are Cleo and Archie excited about their two new roomies? Since it's still several weeks away, maybe you can arrange a play date or even a sleepover or two before the end of February so it won't be such a sudden transition for all four of the dogs!

The thought of having more than one or two dogs is, for a lot of people, tantamount to the idea of having more than one or two kids ...on paper, think think NO WAY ...CAN'T AFFORD IT! But circumstances are not paper and people adjust. God bless you for taking them in.

Hey, good to hear from you, as always. I just can't NOT take those two dogs in. My friend has an 11 year old son. Last year when things started getting bad, his two cats went to friends. Now the poor little guy is losing his dogs also. Sometimes lifes just stinks.

He'll be sad to lose the dogs too, but I bet in years to come what he remembers most is your kindness in giving a home to his beloved pets. Maybe he will have the opportunity 20 or 30 years from now to pay that kindness forward. We all just do what we can.
