Hello from Colorado/Wyoming!

Well, here we are. My house is almost ready to live in upstairs, but the bathroom and my bedroom are still neediing a bit more work. So we're in the basement when we stay there, and in my sister's house in Colorado when we're not. My internet time is pretty limited till July, since I haven't gotten a computer nor computer service. Nor telephone, except a throw away cell phone (and I thought that was just tv cop show fiction!), nor TV. So it's pretty boring around my house.

Celeste didn't get to come, either. It was going to be too hot sometime during the day in Miami, so we were stopped at the ticket counter and had to give Celeste to some friends that came to the airport with us. She's on vacation till O gets back to Lima, which will be on Monday...SOB!!!! I'm so glad to be back home now, but to have him go back just breaks my heart. At least Celeste will have him there with her.

I've been thinking about being by myself here and already have been taking a few turns around the local dog pound, searching for a dog for me and potential pal for Celeste. She's supposed to be coming back with O next year. I found a little dancing cutie - I think she must be something like a miniture Pinscher - but she stands on her hind legs and dances. And then barks her little brains out. Hmmm. Also visited with a schnauzer mix who is about the same size as Celeste. He is only about a year old and very friendly. He's got a bristly schnauzer mustache going on, and some bristly guard hair on his coat that pokes straight out from his body. And a beautiful border collie - one-eyed, but really a nice dog. I guess I'll see who's still available on Friday, after O gets on the plane back to Peru. I'll be bawling then and in need of some friendly distraction - I think a dog will be just the friend I need.

Welcome home, Kat! What a long trip in time and miles to get you from there to there. There'll be lots to distract you while you get the house in shape, but a dog will be a good excuse to stop and go for a walk - as well as good company!

Good to see you're settling in, too bad about Celeste though. I hope you find a nice dog.
Take care.

It sounds like things are upside down for awhile. A dog would be a nice stress-reliever for both you and the dog! ha ha.

hang in there!

Oh no, so sorry about Celeste! I agree and furry friend is good company, for all reasons. I have been recouping from a fall, and am having total conversations with my two, well they listen and look thoughtful.
Glad you are back in the states! Sorry you have to wait a year for O to return! *tears*
Take care,

Welcome home, Kathleen. Transitions are not easy times, and often leave me feeling so adrift.

Sending good thoughts your way.

Glad you are back. Do you think Celeste will ever come home with you? I love that dog.
