Hi everyone.  It feels so good to get caught up here again.  Glad to hear things are going pretty well for everyone.  I am sorry to hear you may be having to investigate something about your jaw Viola.  May you have nothing too challenging to deal with.  

I've been helping my Mom a bit extra due to some extra medical visits and procedures.  But she is finally adjusting and healing well.  I see as we get older there may come to be choices we have to make for our health/life that are not all our favorite choice but we still have to make them.  That's reality.  Just decide and get on with living your best life.

By way of a DJ update...  he adopted a puppy.  And his life has changed dramatically.  He's getting great training for what it is like to be a parent of a little one!!!  (He's not going to be any time soon!)  One time he said, "I can't believe he made a mess on the floor before I got home today!  He did so well yesterday."  I just laughed at him and suggested it might take him a bit more practice than just ONCE!  Anyway they seem to be learning and enjoying each other.  Two weeks ago they took a driving trip to Houston with a couple of friends from school and DJ took the dog.  Everyone got on well and Merlin didn't have to be boarded again.  Here is a picture of "Merlin Over the Mississippi.  DJ must be feeding him right as the 8lb puppy he adopted in March!!

I got a new puppy a couple weeks ago when we got home from the trip. He's a lot of work! But adorable too :P

How fun for you to have a new puppy!  DJ is enjoying having a buddy to play with, walk with and eventually take hiking and camping.  They even goes to downtown Huntsville to wander and catch a bite for dinner after work.  He's met some fun people doing so.  

 

His Dad keeps asking him if Merlin attracts girls and if DJ gets their numbers!?!

Bwhahah! Well, Oakley hasn't gotten me any guys yet :P 

Very cute puppy.  DD is so anxious to get a dog.  She's talking about renting a house when she graduates in August, just so she can have a yard.  And exciting, she has two interviews tomorrow in Arlington (part of DFW metroplex).

A couple of cuties to be sure!

Well one of them was just a short phone interview with HR - setting up a zoom next week with the clinic director. The in person interview actually made her an offer that she is considering - supposed to send her an officer letter next week.  She's also been contacted by another pediatric clinic in Waco that sounds very interesting.  She was SOOOO worried about finding a job, worried if she should renew her lease, wait until after she passes the certification before applying, worried about the timing.  Now her worries have changed to what if I accept something now but find something better in a few weeks.  Shaking my head - she likes to worry.  But now at least it definitely looks like she's leaving Abilene, so she can start packing, bringing "stuff" back here as her lease is up end of August but she doesn't take the test until September.  And we need to get space cleared to store her stuff for a few weeks - or maybe she'll have a place by then.  lots of changes coming grinning
