But imaginings can become real-life. Really. I am proof of that already...as in falling in love with someone I hadn't even met in person and believing we could make a life together....I am going to be requalifying in elder care here soon so I can continue my work with the very best people on the planet....

And I have worked with animals as well, for years.
Your dream is also mine.

Just saying....

Congratulations Andy!

House shopping today. I have my spreadsheets and lists and pad of lined paper for notes. I might be a nerd, but that is Ok! The mom's at dance were laughing at me yesterday, I was like I refuse to do anything but pack my barn, movers pack my crap, put it in your truck and take it to my new house. I don't care what it costs, if I have to do a bridge mortgage, I want to move in and not lift a finger. Sit on a deck overlooking the lake and my barn, drink tea and relax. I have an old home now that we spent way too much renovating, I want brand new everything. Dh has other ideas... I offered the kids money to side with me

Speaking of love for animals, I took myself on a spontaneous Sunday Funday trip to Jungle Gardens! Here are a few pics:




Much needed therapy! That cat came outta nowhere & was my tour guide for a couple minutes Then one of the pigs in the petting zoo plopped down on her side so we could scratch her belly

Having a quiet, healing Sunday. Next week is busy. Kind of wish it wasn't. You all have a great week.

Congrats Andy!
