One decision made!

Well, one decision has been made for us! Angela cannot come along on this trip. The drive from the big city to Axel is long, and the car small. And we will need to be brining Axel back with us on someone's lap as it is. (I'm sure he'll be thrilled about THAT, considering he's probably not going to want to go with us in the first place!)

Dean is only coming along for the first week of the trip, so it's only one week that I need to figure out care for Angela.

AND, today I found out that the person who we had lined up stay with our dogs - when we were hoping to travel in November - is booked all of December. Normally for four dogs she charges $50/day, but was going to do it free of charge for us for the adoption. Boarding them somewhere is out of the question, it is just too expensive! Well that and two of them are breeding dogs (not spayed/neutered) so cannot go to a kennel anyway. Because we have four dogs, it is easiest to have someone stay here with them rather than farm them all out. We can see if one of our adult sons can stay here, but it puts them quite a ways away from their jobs.

See, Satan does this stuff to throw a wrench in things as soon as they start picking up, I tell ya!


  1. Wow! I have not been here in a long time. So happy for you and especially Axel. Do not fear Satan, Leah - you have the power of prayer on your side! Our prayers are with you and your family and to find someone to care for Angela and your dogs. It will all come together soon.

  2. I see your $ thermometer has been rising for the past few days. How is that happening?

  3. Kathy, it's going up because our puppies go home this week.
