I wish I had a camera!

A Good Dog

Well, I have a camera, I just don't know where it is at the moment. I am on the verge of giving up. It will magically turn up when I do not need it. But things are better. I have a knitting group to go to, where everyone is fun and interesting and uses yarn worth being jealous about.
We had poor old Hodges cremated and his ashes placed into a beautiful wood box.
It is a comfort to have them, but I can't articulate why. Poor old guy.

The movers came and most of our things are either broken or missing, my son's bed is completely destroyed. He is sleeping on a mattress on the floor until we can pressure them to do what they said they would and pay for him to have a new bed. My vegetable rack is broken, my husband's drill is missing, the bookcase is broken, the nightstand is missing two just goes on. It is awful. I have never seen a worse move. And, of course, they are trying to blame us. Did I mention the loveseat that they left behind in Utah? Then, the movers refused to put anything together and dropped all our boxes in the garage, they couldn't even bother to bring them in the house. It is just awful, I will be glad when we are finally unpacked and settled.

I got a little black kitten from my friend, Sarah. He was a cutie, just some little stray that wandered in her yard. Then, I took him to the vet on Tuesday and he was FIV positive. So, poor little guy, I had to have him put down. I just wish I could go to bed and not get back up. I think the kids are shell-shocked.

Then, my husband buys me a little cairn terrier puppy! What a cutie! But, ugh, puppy! But it sure has cheered me up. His name is Crowley, I wanted to name him Alistair, which inspired my husband to sing "Mr. Crowley" for hours, and unfortunately, Crowley is what stuck. And when I find the camera, I will post pictures. soon as I have a camera, TONS OF PICTURES!

Awww, Bethany, I am so sorry you are having such a rough time with this move, at least there are some bright spots. I hope the kids are doing well, I am sure it has been hard on them too. BIGGEST [[[HUGS]]] for all of you. Good luck with the puppy.... STick to your guns with the movers, get a cash settlement. threaten them with court and a lawyer if you have too!!

Yes, definitely do not let those movers get a way with this!!! That's just awful. You've been through so much in the past few months. Sending you virtual ((HUGS))!

Oh, and we just got some new pets, too. :D Well, they're only goldfish. My daughter named them Goldie and Henry. :D
