A new approach

After a few more frustrating instances last night, I decided that Rocks for Brains would stay in the kennel for the remainder of her stay with us. We felt bad about locking her up- especially Geoff- but after talking to some people, we realize it is the best thing. Since most dogs won't potty in their kennel, I'm hoping it'll teach her some bladder control, because she has none. And of course, it'll give me some sanity. I've been taking them outside every couple of hours to potty and play, and then putting Roxy away again, and it's been working great. She always whines and howls, but then she goes to sleep. And here after three puppies I thought we had the housetraining thing down, lol.

Today I've been able to go to the gym, clean the house, do laundry, shower and do my hair/makeup, and go grocery shopping for tonight's dinner. I think I have about an hour to read before I need to start making dinner. We're trying tin fool dinners tonight, hope it works out.

Also I did some research yesterday, and it appears that it will easily cost a couple thousand dollars to try and move stuff to the east coast- that's using movers, or renting a haul, or a combination of the two, there's just no getting around it. But I found some flights for $179 each. So we've decided to just sell everything and fly. I'm fine with this except for the bed. I love that bed, it's soo comfortable. We'll check a couple bags each, fly out, check in to our housing, and spend the first day shopping for something to sleep on and a computer, so we can look for jobs and generally find stuff we need. July 14th is the day!

Movers our so expensive! Our last move cost 12 g's CRAZY! Thats like the cost of a nice car. It sure was alot easier that moving it all ourselves. Alot of money though, good thing the Army paid for it all.

I don't blame you one bit for selling your stuff. And it's always fun to start over and get new things. sorry about your bed, though.
