It seems like the last couple of weeks have dragged out. I think I have been anxious for this summer mainly because I am ready to get into my new house! Less than a month to go! Eeek!
Yesterday I went to my brother's house in Dalhart to hang out with them. I don't get to see my niece, Jaylee, and nephews, Wes and Kolin as often as I would like. They are a blast, and always make me feel loved!
While I was there I went to a dog shelter and found a new Golden Retriever that I am adopting. His name is Bentley, and he is not quite a year old. He is a sweet guy and I think he'll make a nice addition to my little family. Addy got to meet him too, just to see how they would get along. She seemed a little indifferent to him. I thought it would be a good idea to adopt around the time we move so Addy didn't have time to establish her territory. I'd prefer to not have a repeat of when my mom's dog was here.
So as it is, they will keep Bentley for me and have him neutered and all his shots up to date. He is going to need a lot of work because he isn't leash broken, and maybe not house broken either. I'll have a lot of time this summer to help him transition into his new home.
My brother, Jason, set up the tent in their backyard. The kids and I got to sleep in it last night. I actually slept better than I thought I would. Addy, and Abby (mom's dog) kept trying to get in the tent with us. Mind you it is a 2-3 person tent, and we were already at maximum capacity. I got to the point where I was just too tired to chase them out, so Abby slept over on Jaylee, and Addy slept tangled up around my legs. I guess it is no wonder why I was tired all day!
Nonetheless, we all had fun riding bikes, camping out, playing with the dogs, and watchin' movies. I am really thankful that God has blessed me with such good family, particularly the youngest Floyds!
