I’ve just been horribly busy the past few days in the life that does not involve the internet.
But I have big news! Zille has been living crate-free since last Friday, and she has been a perfect angel. Today I even forgot to close the bathroom door to protect its precious contents of shoes and dirty clothes, but they were untouched when I returned. How good a dog is she?
I also ordered Roo a “JUST ROO IT” England footsoccerball shirt in anticipation of the US losing its game 3 of the World Cup, but lo! We are still in the tournament. Roo will root for England anyway, because none of the US players share his name.
In other exciting news, the Best Mother Ever will be here next Wednesday, and then next Friday evening I depart for a week in England with my fiance and get to meet my future in-laws (including Tansy the Calico Cat), see Stonehenge, visit my friend Liz Blackdog, and then head off to London for a couple days of sight-seeing before I finally return, exhausted but grateful to be home, to the welcoming arms of the Usual Suspects and the Best Mother Ever, who will probably be pretty exhausted herself after eight days alone with them. If we’re lucky, she’ll keep a diary like she has the past couple times she’s kept them and give me permission to publish excerpts. If you think I’m hilarious, you’ll love my mother. No pressure, Mom!
