Thank God it's December!

November just about did me in!
My Mom had a hip replacement, my best friend sold his house and moved to the tropics, my foster pups got their forever home and flew away and my daughters apartment burned and she and the kids lost almost everything.  Whew!

My Mom is doing great with the new hip, my daughters friends and the kids schools have really rallied around them and she doing great as well now. 
I miss my friend and the pups terribly, but my little silly monkeys have a great new Mom who will love them so much and as for my best friend...well, who wouldn't want to live in a tropical paradise?

At the airport -- they let me hang out with the twins till it was time for them to go to the plane. I cried a lot...

I'm pretty sure Casey was sticking out his tongue at me

Also pretty sure that's the "I thought you loved us" look from Alex...

Adventures with the fosterpups!

The two schnauzers are just visiting, while their Dad is on holiday, so it's not this nuts all the time!

So happy for a friend!

I just love it when a friend is successful and happy. My friend Lynn Krawczyk was, (I think) still a little shy and not completely confident in her art when I first met her. 
She is a fantastic lady and  I have so much enjoyed watching her pile one success on top of another these last few years. I love love love seeing her rise in the arts world!!

Go visit her beautiful new website, Smudged Textiles Studio and see what I mean!
 Kudos to Lynn and her awesome web designer!

Really bad photo taken be our server at Tony Packos in Toledo
Big congrats on all your successes Lynn -- can't wait to see what else is coming!!

I'm going to be a Mom...again!

Did that get your attention?
What? At her age????  Psych!

No, it's not like that...I'm going to be a foster-mom for a pair of Bichon rescues! I can't wait till they get here -- just waiting for a break in that crazy Texas heat, so they can fly to Ohio.

Bugsy and I are very excited!
