quick update. I'm stealing wireless from our neighbor. And I'd be a lot happier if he'd move his router a little closer to our house, bc this connection is spotty :-)
I'm immensely relieved to report that the move to the bigger house with a huge yard has resolved 99% of the dog trubs. These three are a veritable Jurassic Park raptor pack. Squirrel in the trees? They form a perfect Vee formation and they're off. Last night, all three hounds launched themselves into bed with Tony and held him captive between their furry bodies for three hours. I think he may have abandoned the bed to them.
Also, we bought a sectional from Craigslist (yay for CL!) with recliners at either end. It fits perfectly into the family room. And I have infinity dibs on the recliner on the left end. You have it in writing, my children. Don't mess with Lavs' seat.
We've made at least one trip daily to Home Depot, Lowes, Shopko, Target and/or Costco for various supplies we must have for our new house. Our bank accounts have taken a hit. But the new place is shaping up and we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the last two members of Team Plack. Cara and Pia should be heading out from the East Coast in the next few days. Can't Wait!
