Still Here!

The days are flying by now.

Saturday the truck will be loaded. Sunday we drive away. Tuesday we begin living in Colorado.

Between now and then, there is much to do, though not so much as to be crazy-making. I'm glad I took the slow-n-steady approach. Not only have I been calmer and, frankly, happier with the whole process, I've had an incredible amount of time to enjoy the company of folks I know around here. Dev is a tad more panicked, as he didn't realize just how long it would take to pack his memorabilia-packed room, but he'll make it. :)

Our poor pups are the ones most freaked out, and Tanner is actually the worst of the two. She is attached to my side, sometimes whimpering for reassurance, which is totally opposite of her usual Warrior Princess persona. I think she's fearing a repeat of what happened with her previous home, when the owner moved in with family and surrendered Tanner to the shelter.

Alas, there's nothing I can do to explain to Tanner that she's stuck with us forever. So we just keep cuddlng her whenever she reaches out for reassurance, and giving her all the love we can.

And I have a laptop! A friend here had one not being used and passed it on to me. I did a happy dance. :) I'm not going to bother setting it up before the move, though. But once I land in CO, I can hit the ground running--a good thing, considering the projects requiring my attention.

And... well, that's about all for now. Other than, "I'm moving," there isn't much more to say other than I miss being social with y'all!

Wow, congratulations on having so much done already!!! And how exciting that the move is already upon you!!! ::HUGS:: I hope you are very happy when you get settled.

Congratulations on the laptop, too. What a wonderful gift.

Poor puppies. Do you think they'll like the drive there?

I was so impressed with how well the pups did on the drive! I knew Gambit traveled well, but had no clue how Tanner would do. She was perfect!!

The trip was great in that we all got along and the pups were wonderful. The moving truck, however, made things difficult and at some times really dangerous. It was bad enough Penske comped us the ENTIRE truck rental.

But really, we had a kind of fun heading across Kansas, playing with the pups, talking, and thinking. :)

Also. Putting some of your dirty clothes (tee shirts best) in her bedding and the car and all around in the new place will help the poor animal. How I loathe people who betray their trust and dump them.

Dev and I both proclaimed this a fabulous idea, and the pups settled happily on our unlaundered t-shirts every night in the hotels. And both calmed considerably once we all piled into vehicles and drove away TOGETHER. :)

Thank you! It was more... interesting... than I'd hoped, but it worked out well in the end and we all arrived safely. :)
