Good Morning Xangaland!

Sorry I never got back yesterday!  Busy day!!  The groomer was a huge success!  Gandalf is still shedding a little but they say that happens for the first two days after grooming because of the stress and excitement.  However he looks like he lost 10 pounds and his coat is all shiny and soft!  I’m excited about this.


Yoda of course looks ten years younger!  We had them do a nice summer cut so his hair is very short but with a big slobbery brother like Gandalf this is for the best!!


(Sigh) My babies…..


Today I have to run over to my mom’s house to help her with some things on the computer.  Then I’m here catching up on a thousand little things.  What’s new these days? 

I know that my site has become boring this last few weeks but please bear with me…  I am going to have increasing amounts of things that will just consume my days for the next few months but I’m trying desperately to hang on to all of you.  When I’m living in Germany and my world is upside down all of you will be exactly the same and I have a sneaking suspicion I’m going to need that in my life.  So give me a few months to move and all will be back to normal. 

Hey I discovered something so disturbing yesterday!  I must be getting old!  I have never once in all my 25 years been able to touch my nose with my tongue.  It’s hereditary you aren’t supposed to develop the talent.  I was in the shower yesterday and water was running off my nose and I just stuck my tongue out, who knows why, and all the sudden boom I touched my nose!!!!!!!!  I freaked and walked around doing it all day just to make sure it wasn’t a freak accident.  Do you have any idea how devastated I am?  Because my tongue didn’t get longer so you know what that means right?

My nose must have…. sigh….

  1. I like the pics of your dogs..and love their names! They look like they are proud of how pretty they look! Now, I’ve heard of getting “long in the tooth” but never “long in the tongue”…LOL! Hmmm… I’ll have to try that one! Have a great weekend!

  2. Sorry about your tounge & nose..My sister can do it..LOL..The dogs are so cute..I love that picture of them together..Looks like they are smiling!! And I know I  will stick with you while you are moveing!! Good Luck with that and my prayers are with you!!

  3. I love that you are praying for me–it is SO encouraging!  I never tire of hearing it!!  ;o)
    Your puppies are cute!  I love their names, too. 
    I LOVE your tongue and nose story–that is hilarious!!!  I can’t touch my nose with my tongue, but who knows–in a few years, I might just be there with you!!

  4. You’re moving to Germany.  Wow!!! Sorry haven’t been on in a while but i guess you know I haven’t had a computer in a few months. Anyway..I’m sooooooo jealous.  I’ve never left the little town i grew up in.  Shane asked on our honeymoon “other than when we’ve been together, when was the last time I left the state?”.  You know what my answer was…. 5 YEARS!!!!!!  Now that sucks.  I will travel one day.  My goal used to be to go to London.  Now it’s just to get west of the Mississippi river. =(
    Your dogs are sooooooo cute. I want one really really bad, but Shane said not with our new carpet.
    Sometimes a quite period is really good.  No need to apologize.
