Today is a good day for our household. Today marks the official ‘gotcha’ day for Missy B, now renamed to Piper! Turns out, we were her family all along! We just returned from the Humane Society (with poor Piper getting sick all over my backseat), and now we’re home and safe!
One of the things I started last year after the death of my old dog was to open my home and foster dogs from the local Humane Society. So far, I’ve taken in three dogs, and all three were adopted! I took a break during December, but after returning from my trip, I decided it was time to go get number 4!
New year, new goals! My hope is to start updating here more, so that I can have a place on the internet that is mine and not social media. This is my home, where I’ll keep all the things that mean something to me.
Time to meet our new foster! His name is Buddy, and he is a gentle, sweet, living old man. 8 years old, and mellow, he’s been busy sniffing through the house. Here’s hoping we can get this good boy into a forever home soon!
Update: As of 11/14/2023, Buddy was adopted and his name changed to Koda!
It’s been an interesting weekend, to say the least. After having not seen her in over 20 years, I got to see my older sister. There were a lot of emotions I had to work through to get to this point, since the two of us have never been what you’d call close. However, it went well, and I can tell her life abroad has changed her just as my experiences have changed me. I feel as though we can actually have a relationship now, which is something I thought I’d never have with her despite how much I wanted it.
Apparently I started a new trend by taking my mother with me on adventures, because now she wants to do this every year. This year, she chose for the family to go to Cox Arboretum in Dayton, Ohio. It was somewhat cloudy and chilly, but we had fun looking at all the fall flowers and foliage. I definitely noticed the difference all my working out has done; I was able to run around and climb stairs without even getting winded. All in all, a good way to spend some time with the family.
Also, we saw Alice Cooper’s memorial bench. Okay, it was for a librarian, not a rock star.
