Time to Surface
Last night I tried blogging and posting pictures, starting where I left off in China, but my computer had a meltdown and shutdown on my and refused to reboot. We're continuing to get the house in order. Today I lined up help for the outside. Several trees need to be removed and that will begin on Monday. I also lined up another contractor to bid on some work. My previous contractor disappeared. He did a great job, but I don't know what happened to him.
Meanwhile, we are enjoying emptying more boxes and having great satisfaction when we pass the empty ones on to those who need them for their own move. We are getting to know our neighbors and make new friends at church and in the community. We've met friends who have Shetland ponies and others who have llamas and a new litter of puppies. I can't wait to visit them and see what the girls think of the animals.
Tucked neatly into all of this, are several appointments with surgeons and other specialists to get Apple's medical care rolling. I am definitely not looking forward to her surgeries, but I know that I'll rise to the occasion and my SuperMommy powers will get me through it all.
I'll try to get the blog caught up this week with lots of sweet pictures.
