On January 30, I retired.
The first part of the week of Feb 1, we packed
Thur Feb 5, the movers came and picked up our stuff
Monday Feb 9, we were on the auto train headed for our new home in Central Florida.
On our way down to Florida we got a call that MJ's mom had a "whopper of a stroke". She lives in the Fort Lauderdale area. We were able to get down to her in time to say good bye. She was 89 and in great health, still living on her own. MJ's sister was also on her way down to Fl when she got the call because they were all coming to see and stay at our new house for a family style vacation. We know she was very happy and pain free when she passed. More than that you can't ask for in life.
Friday night back to the house
Saturday 8 AM the movers arrive.
Sunday through Thursday we unpacked.
And then the best day of the last three weeks came........
The kids arrived.
The girls playing with MJ
We are rescuing them through Florida English Bulldog Rescue.
They were abandoned as puppies and had a lot of health issues that needed to be resolved. In great shape they were adopted out to a family that were apparently not a good fit. They both came back in worse shape than they were originally.
Nettie is now very healthy and living with us. Celie is still on medical hold due to a stress related mange issue that is well on it's way to gone. We will have have play dates so that she is used to us when the move happens and so that she stays in contact with her sister. They are about a year and a half old. Very timid but very lovey dovey. I know we can give them a wonderful forever home.
