puppies & house stuffs & changes in plans...

So 90% of what I thought I was doing this weekend has changed in some way... but that isn't necessarily a bad thing.
Lets see. Tonight I'm not going to be going to Rochelle's because it turns out that she will be going with Pat up to his parents place. A few last final details for the wedding. I'm sorry we don't get to have our "girls night", but it probably made things easier in the long run since I have the hair appt (still) tomorrow morning. I would have had to drop off my car last night, which is a pain in the ass. So tonight Trav is taking a car-full of boxes to the new place, and we will probably spend the rest of the night packing boxes and then packing his car (we'll pack mine after I get back tomorrow morning). Ro and I will go do my fitting some night next week. After my hair appt my dad won't be coming down... his back is giving him problems... so we will wait on changing the lights until the next weekend. Don't want my dad killing his back for no reason! So we will just work on finishing the trim in the bedroom and doing the kitchen. Maybe, if we are super efficient, we will start fixing up the middle room some. We are also going out to buy a lawn mower, a new shower head, and look at some curtains. I am strangely excited by that. We need a new shower head because the previous owner only had the hand held kind. Creepy. And we need curtains for our bedroom because, as I told Trav, I want to be friendly with our neighbors, but not THAT friendly! So we will see how much we can get done. I have high hopes.

Today is also my dad's birthday... so Happy Birthday Papita!!!!!!!!!

Next week I have a Dr. Appt Monday, Megan Vasta's birthday Tuesday (Happy Birthday Megan!), possibly meeting Brian & Stacey for dinner Wednesday, and Friday Trav is leaving to go to Pat's for his Bachelor Party! So he will be gone all weekend (coming home Sunday which is his Birthday!!!), and I will be working my ass off trying to get lots done in the house. The following weekend is when we have to be out of our apartment, and it is also when we decided to rent a truck to get most of our stuff out of storage. It is a 3-day weekend, so hopefully by the end of it we will be at least 90% unpacked/settled in. We shall see! So that is the updated news on the house stuff.

On another note... I was talking to George online today because his dog is having 11 puppies!! That's right, 11!!! And he is trying to find homes for them. So obviously I am hoping to be able to get one! It is actually pretty perfect. They will be Yellow Lab/Golden Retriever mix... which is one of Trav's favorites. They should be born this coming week, and will be 8 weeks old when they are ready to be given out. 8 weeks would put it about mid-July... or right before we were planning on going to Cape Cod with Trav's parents. So, we could probably arrange to pick him/her up then (too perfect there!).
We get all the benefits of adopting a dog from a shelter like we were going to: It will be free, George will get them to be update with all shots, and will probably start house training them even before he starts to give them away. As he said, they will probably need a little more on that, but will be well on there way. That's more then you can say for a lot of shelter dogs. Plus that gives us about two months to get settled in and ready for a dog. As you can see I am excited by this idea. Plus, something you don't get with a shelter dog: we know that these puppies will be happy well adjusted dogs that were well taken care of before we got one.

Of course, I am waiting to hear what Travis has to say... but I am hope hope hoping against hope (lol, pathetic, I know) that he will see this the way I do. So cross your fingers and wish me luck, that next time I write it will be about just waiting for my puppy to be born! :-)
