Passing on some good news!

Drea -- my friend - from Canada -- left this morning for China to pick up her daughter!!! She gets Mia on Monday.

Here's her blog link:

I'm so excited for them and can't wait to see the pictures of her.

I've been absent for a few weeks. Lots going on -- but nothing exciting. I wanted to post on 9/11 but didn't really know how to put my thoughts into words. As I was driving to work the radio station I was listening to where playing 9/11 related songs -- then about 1 mile from my house I saw the first flag at half-staff --- I lost it driving to work. I should have turned the radio off but I thought it was good to remember and turning the radio off would have made it too easy to forget.

I was going to blog about my baby boy -- Thunder -- but couldn't bring myself to talk about it. He's been very sick since the beginning of summer. We have spend more money on tests than I care to admit. But, he's our baby boy so the money doesn't really matter -- well it does but..... He had a cancerous tumor removed last Tuesday from under his arm. The vet called this week with the biopsy results -- it was some kind of a contained cancerous tumor so hopefully he'll bounce back to his old self soon. He also had 5 fat tumors removed. So he looks like a patchwork puppy with all the shaved patches.

Sonny has the new flower box built -- sorry no pictures yet. He was going to get the dirt this past weekend but since Ike's rain decided to visit -- the dirt didn't happen yet. It rained during the night on Friday, all day on Saturday and part of the day on Sunday. We had over 5 inches of rain last weekend - with most of it coming on Saturday morning.

Not much else going on. Looking forward to following Drea's 2 weeks in China. It renews my spirit that I'll get there someday.......soon.

Have a great week!

Good to hear from you, my friend. I know what you mean about 9/11. You just can't help but relive that day every year. Sorry to hear about Thunder. It's so hard when our furbabies aren't feeling well. I hope he is well on his way to recovery. Congrats to your friend. I'll follow her progress on the blog. Love ya. Miss ya.

Sherry - Popping over from Drea's blog (I saw your comment) to say that I am a fellow June Bug. I have a 6/13 LID. It's very nice to "meet" you. I used to be Drea's secret pal, during the second go-around. I'm so very excited for them!

Good to see you update,girl. Sorry to hear about Thunder. I hope that things get better for him. It is never fun seeing our fur babies sick.
I can't believe it is already time for Drea to be over there. Thanks for the heads up. I did the hairbow swap with her. I hope she can use many of them soon.

Take care.

Hey sister! Thanks for the mention! As you know from my e-mail, things are going good so far! HAHA we pick up Mia tomorrow! Its pretty surreal actually, and we keep looking at each other saying "I can't believe we're in China!"
