It’s been a busy week around here, as you may have noticed from the complete lack of attention I’ve given to this blog (and Facebook and Twitter, for that matter).

Part of the reason came to us Monday night, when we surprised our daughter with the one thing she’s wanted more than anything for years: a puppy. It all happened pretty fast. We only found out about her on Sunday, and by Monday, my husband and I were on the road to Abbotsford through rush hour traffic to meet her and, it turned out, bring her home.

Are we nuts? Possibly. But the look on Isabelle’s face when she saw her for the first time made it all worthwhile.

      Thanks, ladies. Julie, she doesn’t have a name yet. We’re working on it. :)
