Let's Play Catch (Up!)

Hello blog universe!

Sorry I have been away for so long. Like I told my team lead at my end-of-the-year job chat today, I've just had so many things going on in my personal life that it has been hard to keep up with everything (like this!)

However, it is a great time to get back into my blog, because tomorrow is a big day...

Tomorrow is our Apple-versary...aka the anniversary of the day we found and kept our wonderful, beautiful dog, Apple. There will be many posts to come about this :).

Since I last posted, we did manage to find a house that would take Apple and our application was accepted!

In our front yard!
The houses that we looked at the day after I posted Moving When a Family Member is Four-Legged were a bit interesting. The first one was decent enough, but it had a tiny yard, some cleanliness issues, and it just didn't seem right. 

The second one was like something out of a nightmare. There were cracks in the walls, dirt and grass all over the floor, brown smudges, holes in the ceiling, and it reeked of drugs. It was awful. I was so worried we would never find a place, and I desperately hoped the last house would be better.

The last house was much better, and although Steven had to leave to go to a temp job, I went ahead and put the money down on it. We had a few security issues when we first moved in, but since then, everything has been fine and great!

The yard is awesome.

 We painted the majority of the interior of the house, and it took 3 weeks to get our stuff settled in, but now we are quite established here. :)

I am so glad they accepted Apple, but I had hoped to foster dogs for Austin Dog Rescue after moving, and I have been too "chicken" to try to clear this with my landlord....we'll see if anything ever comes of this.

Apple has been really enjoying the yard, but has unfortunately been digging, and misses the company of other dogs at the dog park, so we still try to take him somewhat often. 

Tomorrow, I really promise that I will post blogs! I will have to show you his cake, and I plan on posting "To My Dog's Previous Owners," a blog similar in style to To My Dog's Mother, On His Birthday. It should be a great day!
