Thinning the herd...

Well, in the midst of moving I decided the number of pets we have is too many.  In an attempt to remedy this situation, I relieved myself of the cat that shits on my pillows, I think I've found a home for the rats (providing the people actually show up this afternoon) and my black pit bull mix went back to the people we got her from. 

I love that dog.  She's an amazing dog, she loves my baby, loves me, follows me everywhere.  On Saturday, the people emailed me telling me that they missed her, and thought they made a mistake 6 months ago when they gave her to me.  We talked about it and since I haven't gotten her fixed or anything, we decided that maybe she'd be better off with them. 

So imagine my dismay when I was browsing through Craigslist and found an ad for her.  They decided they weren't going to keep her and rather than offer her back to me, they just put an ad there and I guess thought I'd never know.  I'm not a horrible pet owner.  Yes, I love them all, even the rodents.  I've never been really good about getting animals their shots even when I had a ton of money, but I figured since no one ever goes out of my yard they'd be safe.  I guess that made me seem like such a bad owner to these people that they'd rather she go  to the pound than come back to me. 

Well, I find that unacceptable.  I emailed them, and I'm trying to get her back.  If I had known this was going to happen, I'd never have given her back to them.  I'm pissed about it, but I don't know what to do.  I'm so upset by the whole thing!!!  I will keep everyone posted on that issue.

The raven has flown off to be a raven, and I know I said I was doing mamatography, but I fucking suck and I haven't gotten my shit together to do that  yet.  Moving sucks!  I just keep in mind this is the last time I have to move and I'm fine though.

The house is shaping up, and we'll get it done soon and be over there, it's gonna be great.  My kids are getting excited by this and they've already gone swimming to break in the pool for the summer.  Pretty cool I can teach phiz to swim in the pool I learned in 35 years ago.  That place is so full of memories for me, and so many good ones at that.

I'd like to ask the few of you that read to leave me a comment, tell me your best and worst moving stories :)

Until next time...

Army brat so there was a lot of moving but it never really bothered me one way or another. The worst move though was when I finished college and my DH and I decided to move in with my folks to gather up a down payment for our house. Our apartment though was the worst ever- we're talking cockroaches, lead paint, the whole shebang... but it was a high cost of living area so that was as good as it was going to get for us. Long story short, our building got bed bugs, 3 times. Surprisingly we didn't get it but it was a nightmare checking EVERYTHING, packing, then unpacking and checking again. The worst case of moving ever!

Oh no!!! I fortunately have no experience with bed bugs but I can see how that could scar you for life!
