back to it

I've been trying to find time to start stitching again. Enough feeling sorry for myself already! :-) I'd love to get this piece finished over the weekend and since I don't have any plans, if I just plant myself on the couch and ignore my Facebook page, I might actually do it.


I've starting house shopping! Prices in the area where I live and want to buy have finally come down to reasonable prices and with interest rates where they are I think I can finally do it and still eat. And that means the pugs eat! So it works for everybody.


Izzy is doing fine and my sister and brother-in-law love her very much. I just worry they won't have time for her like I would have nor have the skill set to train a high drive dog. But I'm sure it will all work out. I'm going to hold off on my lab puppy search until I'm in my new place. I'd love to have a puppy more of less potty trained before I move but I don't want to complicate my life even more right now.

Good luck with your house search~now is definitely a good time to do it! Will you stay in your town do you think? I'm down in Libertyville, and we really love it here. We lived in Gurnee when we were newlyweds, and the only grocery store was Weltons! There are quite a few more attractions there now!

dog love... understand
I would love a puppy... we have 2 older dogs, so many to choose from... but no must resist at least for now. I want a boston terrier, my 15 year old wants a hound, my 17 year old wants a yellow lab and my poor husband is a sucker for any puppy
