maybe a kennel in your sewing room where he can see you but not mess with anything??

or at least train him to stay on his bed?

That is what DJ does with his new doggie.  It works pretty well for them.

Hiya all.  Happy hot July.  CA had a week or so of high temps at the end of June and now it seems to have moved to CO.  We came here a couple of days ago to attend a memorial for one of DH's cousins.  So we are staying on a couple of weeks to do some chores at our place in Ft Colins and to have a couple of in person mtgs with our architect and builder.  DH is getting nervous about the shaky housing market in our area in CA.  He wants us to move out so the floors and one of the bathrooms can be updated and modernized and get the house sooner than later.  But I'm in such an emotional quandary.  I do look forward to moving here but don't want to move twice (once into the small house and 40ft storage container on property and second into the new house after it's finished).  I'm trying to discuss non emotionally but inside I just want to cry out "!WHAT!"?*?*?  I don't want last Christmas to have been our last one in our CA home!  I'm not physically, emotionally or mentally ready for this!  We had a plan!  

Oh well.  Thanks for reading this.  I've not shared this info with many close friends.  Things still change and timelines still change.  Our final design isn't nailed yet.  We still have one set of rooflines that conflict with each other.  We're going to meet with the architect and builder this Monday and hope to get this solved or we'll delete the Observatory ("windows in the round" upstairs room) and get on with the engineering design so we can break ground and get to building!  And come to realize we can delay the sale and move out of our CA home until at least next year.  I'm praying about all of this.  Oh, and my proper attitude too.  

I never thought I would be living in an RV full time and only visit my house. We are now trying to rent the house and all our stuff is in storage. Figure that is God's plan for us right now so just trying to maintain a grateful attitude. We have been tent camping the last week in the Rockies and enjoying some amazing scenery. Heading back to the Front Range tomorrow.

Is it hard to rent out your house? Around here where I live it is hard to found a place to rent.

Well we are out in the country and it was only listed a week ago so it is too early to tell.

I'm sure that doubly confirmed her offer to DD!

the awkward thing was I terminated her.  But she still wanted to use me as a reference.  It didn't matter tho, daughter has accepted a position in Waco, at a larger clinic where she will be working with several others OTs.  She feels she wants to work with some experienced therapists for her 1st job as a registered Occupational therapist.  It's a growing pediatric practice, with a waiting list of over 60.  So she will be able to have a full client load pretty quickly.  And the salary was significantly higher.  I'm a little disappointed that she won't be closer in Fort Worth but Waco is only 1.5hrs away, slightly closer than she is now.   We drove down on Friday and looked at apartments.   It's changed a lot since I was there in 1980 smile

How exciting for your DD!  Maybe she will run into Chip ad Jo Gaines.

you were definitely right about the shortages in therapy.  She got 3 offers right away, and was just contacted by a 4th.  Though she's still happy with the one she took in Waco.  I was surprised too at the salary.  My impression has always been health care didn't pay as well as business but her starting salary is significantly higher than my son's in accounting  - both with masters.  Though she has experience & he doesn't - also her grades are better.  Still, we're all glad because her debt is $$$$ignificant.

Our DD has been a  PT for 16 years and she says there is always a need for more.  She gets 1 or2 students a year to train during their clinicals.  I think that there are so many of us "baby boomers" getting older and needing therapy, and I think doctors are more likely to prescribe therapy  than they did in years past.  DD is still working on student loan!!  Undergrad wasn't a problem with her scholarships ad grants but grad school sure was a bite.  She lucked out and only needed her masters.  The year after she started, it was changed to needing their doctorate to get certified.  That would certainly add to the student loan debt.  Is she working through a hospital or private clinic?
