It's A Girl!

That's right, we now have a little girl. Not that we were looking to expand the family, but things happen!

This is Abby.

She was left in a carrier outside a closed animal shelter. She was just abandon. How could anyone just leave a dog out in the heat (at least 100 degrees), alone like that? Anyway, A friend called and asked if we could please take her. She is as cute as cute can be! Our vet tells us she approximately 3 years old and is heart worm negative. She was however, covered in fleas and had lost a good bit of hair on her back from the constant scratching. We made sure she got all her shots and have taken care of the flea problem. She was given a good bath and she looks great. She wieghs about 10 lbs. and loves to eat. She is a Shih Tzu mix. She doesn't mind car rides. We think she will be a great little camper!

She has made herself right at home! The boys don't seem to mind having her around. She really wants to be alpha dog but We don't think Mr. Willey is going to let that happen. She and Otis have become fast friends.

Sorting through the stuff

We spent our weekend sorting through our catering room. Yes, we have one room stuffed to the gills with catering supplies. We are not the type to do anything half way. In the past five years we have collected enough stuff to fill a 12x14 room with two closets full of stuff. We have 100 plates, 100 bowls, 100 salad plates, 100 dessert cups and silverware for over 100. We have chafing dishes, serving trays, platters, punch bowls, pots and pans. We discovered things this weekend we didn’t even remember buying! We must have really needed it! This room alone will be one huge garage sale.

We aren’t getting rid of all of it. So we are going through and deciding what we think we might want to keep. It really will be nice to have a three bedroom house again!

Mean while we have a living room and dining room that is a total disaster! The garage looks even worse!

It will take time but we are slowly getting it done. Rome wasn’t built in a day!
