Mourning the Loss

Well friends, I'm head-over-heels in grief. Yes, grief.

Ya see, we had some hellacious storms roll through here at the end of last week and Thursday night, my house was struck by lightening. House is ok, but we lost almost all our electronics, including my computer and brand new, shiny new, still-has-the-new-smell DSL. Can I get an OH LORD! here? now gimme an AMEN. Thanks.

So, here we sit, at our public library (my son and I) trying to get our online lives back on track. He MUST feed his Webkins and I must pay bills, read Ravelry, check the Rockin'SockClub blogs, and so forth. These are crucial, dontchaknow?!?

The rain's passed for now, and it's pretty and sunny here at around 60-65ish outside and Ashton and I have been out and about in our orange VW Thing and having fun. Life ain't too bad!

Yesterday I drove to Louisville, KY to deliver Baron - he was the first foster Weimaraner we got through the Louisville Weimaraner Rescue Organization. A wonderful couple from Cleveland, OH adopted him. On my way home from Louisville I met up with a 'rescue animal transport volunteer' in Elizabethtown, KY and picked up Sarge, a 2-year old male Weim. He's one of the most handsome dogs I've ever seen and he's GINORMOUS, weighing in at 90lbs. Let me tell you: this dog is Awesome!!! He's trained, doesn't need to be crated, has perfect house manners and is just the TOTAL package!!! Don't tell anyone (specifically my boyfriend) but I'm thinking of adopting him myself!!! I'll fill ya in here later, when I decide whether or not I'm going to adopt him. My son wants him too!! We already have 3 great ones, so maybe I'll let someone else have this big wonder-dog. Know anyone looking for the perfect dog?? Send him my way!!

WOW! I'm glad you are alright. The electronics thing stinks for sure, but at least you know the bright side...and I don't mean the bright lightening that was over your house. lol. Hang in there!
