Have you ever had a day where you wish you could crawl back into bed and just start over again? After spending my morning with my dog, whose face and legs became mysterious swollen over the course of a couple hours, a vet visit was finally imminent. We discovered that our lively Shae, that just loves being outside, is allergic to bees and had been stung right on her snout. Nice huh? So this poor dog had a nose that she couldn't breath out of and eyes she couldn't see out of, not to mention swollen legs and this constantly confused look on her face. She was a balloon the poor thing. And of course, I'm the overbearing worried "mama" who was distraught all day long trying to figure out what the heck was wrong with her, until the vet finally explained to us what most likely happened and gave her a couple of shots. $80.00 later, the dog is fixed, our bank account now broken.
After all this, I headed off to work and Aaron finally had his appointment with those all important people at the Air Force base that decide our fate. We are trying desperately to find a way to move back to New York or at the very least, be transferred somewhat closer being that we are currently about 2,200 miles away from there. The news wasn't good. Or at least the outlook isn't good. No matter how the man tries to sugarcoat it and tell us to "be positive" his words basically told us we're most likely stuck here for the next 3 years. Yippee. We just keep telling ourselves "God has a plan and He will see us through." Just gotta keep reminding myself of that. It will all work out one way or another. Any extra prayers you have hanging around would be great. :-)
Through all of this, I did manage to make a dent in the books I'm reading for some of the challenges. I'm about 3/4 of the way through Wedding Ring and though not thrilled with it, it's nice, light reading for my messy brain. I still have most of Inkheart to read, but have gotten about halfway through Little Town on the Prairie. Reviews will follow as soon as I get a little more organized. However, being new to this whole blogging experience, I'm not quite sure how to make a strikeout line through the books I've completed for the challenges, so for now, those are in bold. If any of you could make a suggestion as to how to do that, it would be great. Until next time..happy reading to all!
