Congratulations!

Having just moved, my advice to pack up all the books first. And if you can put them into small boxes, all the better.

We actually rent a storage space for the time of moving. We pack up boxes and schlep them to the storage space and get them out of the way. For whatever reason, that really helps us with our motivation to pack.

We've been adopted by a feral kitten. Nugget thinks living in our house beats living under a pallet with old insulation in a dusty open barn. We caught her in a trap and brought her in to keep the ants out of her food while she waited for her spay appointment. Turns out she's pretty sweet.. Wish us luck trapping & spaying the rest of the family

Awww baby kitties. Our second cat was a rescue from the dirt road behind our neighborhood. He is super sweet too. We didnít intend to keep him but he was so cuddly once he calmed down that we fell in love.

We are taking a 2 week road trip so my dad will be babysitting. He seems excited about it. The vet said to wait to spay so she just got shots and wormer today. The kids have her in bed watching captain marvel now. They keep sending me videos she is actually watching the movie and making biscuits

Default Re: What's something new going on in your life?

Iíve declared 2021 sundress summer. Iím NOT a dress person but Iím loving it. It came from the fact that none of my shorts will stay up anymore...and I had a few sun dresses I never wore

I think in my late 40ís I finally found summer clothes that are ME. I found 3 dresses for $10 at goodwill. I also remembered when we moved I decluttered all the dresses I wore once for an event and never touched again. Lots of sundresses and a few other dresses I couldíve make work but oh well Iím a good thriftier so itís ok. These are the first 3 non work non special occasion/holiday clothes Iíve bought in quite a while.

I wore dresses every day on our vacation even if I was cold .

That's so awesome! And I'm jealous! I'm 5'2" and have the hardest time finding dresses that fit.

Our puppy had surgery yesterday. I made her homemade bone broth for her recovery. She' drank the whole bowl. She's a good patient.

I'm going to read all day, so I can sit right next to her. If I'm here, she doesn't need the cone of shame. Win, win!

Awww poor baby. Awesome to avoid the cone of shame . Our dogs wouldnít ever drink their broth to recover but both of them loved their homeopathic remedies and lavender massages (obviously not together) ...

Current job, but got promoted to Associate Project Manager... I was a conversion coordinator before. Super excited about the job title! I got my degree in Business/Project Management in 2016.
