Well, it’s been a few weeks since my last update but a lot has changed in the past few weeks. For the sake of our dogs and our family we opted out of transferring to Kentucky. We were only given a little over two weeks of notice to pack up, find living and move before having to report to work at our new job. It was hard enough finding housing for five dogs, but when you told them what kind of dogs they were…yeah, didn’t happen. Ah, well. It’s in the past and we won’t give up our dogs when we have other options in our future.
In that time frame, the place where we’re currently working is pending sale. A buyer is finally looking to buy the place. We are riding through the transition and transferring to the original parent company in twelve months or so. This will mean a few changes over the course of the year, but we’re staying in Michigan (for now). We’ve started hunting for property finally that will allow us to finally have a nicer set up for us and our future growing family.
Bruce and I have been talking about going to the court on May 21st and finally signing the paperwork to make us a legally married couple after nine years and a few months of being together. What was the reason for the date you ask? Well, it’s Luna’s birthday. She will be nine years old and what better way to commemorate our time together than the glue that has held us so tightly for nine years. I never would have pictured myself where I am nine years ago with her and Bruce…or for that matter, Mika, Duo, Ryker and Lyric! I wouldn’t change it for the world – even with the hard times we’ve faced in the past or those we may suffer through in the future. What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger, or something like that.
We’ve had some plans and goals change with the prospects of the upcoming changes to our life and job situation and it will be interesting to see how they play out over the coming years. We’re rushing headlong into the unknown and it’s thrilling and downright frightening at the same time. I won’t deny that I’m absolutely terrified that things will go terribly wrong, but I will continue to hope for the best for myself, Bruce, the dogs and…well, you can take a guess at what else.
I am truly blessed to have so little but have so much at the same time.
