A new look for us... sort of

Four years of improper construction makes a nice case for rotting wood and leaks! UGH! Finally, after getting the run around from the builder and insurance company (neither of which I will name here --- although I should) we decided to cough up the cash and take care of this nasty problem once and for all.

For me the 'silver lining' to this huge bill and weeks of construction is it will finally be fixed correctly and I can decorate the music room. For the kids, the upside is they couldn't participate in their piano recital because the piano had to be sealed off for several weeks, hence, no practice or lessons.

Always something good!

Room for Roo

Recently in the middle Tennessee area, there was a huge puppy mill bust. Conditions were horrific and dogs in make shift jails were left outside, neglected without food or water, sitting in their own feces. Animal Rescue found more than 100 dogs suffering in this mill. My friend, Shawn Aswad of Snooty Giggles Dog Rescue took in the old, sick and suffering and rounded up fosters for these dogs until they can find forever families willing to love them. We were lucky enough to be able to foster a sweet little teacup Chihuahua named Roo. Roo is 5 years old (approximately) and a love. She is extremely timid, as she has never known real love and affection, and she is scared of sudden movements and sounds. But once she learns to trust, she is so cuddly and loving and will allow you to hold her. I would love for Roo to find a forever home who would love her, work with her and help her realize a true dog's life. If anyone is interested in adopting her, please let me know. Here are some pictures:

Help me find this sweet girl a home!
