A couple of weeks of some kind of respiratory virus, along with a sinus infection (first I've had in years and years!) and now I'm coughing, coughing, coughing. It's getting really old and is totally zapping my energy level. Each day is a bit better so I hope to be able to put something up worth reading sometime soon.
We've been transitioning over a little 2 yr old terrier mutt named Trixie, who will be staying with us permanently beginning tomorrow (our 15 yr old miniature dachshund had to be put down last December). Number 3 daughter just has one more year of high school and then number 4 will be all by her lonesome here -- so Trixie will keep things enlivened over the next number of years.
