All That I'm After Is A Life Full Of Laughter...

Thank you for all the responses on my possible career change! I was really excited to hear that there are others out there who earned their bachelors and then decided that it wasn't for them. I emailed one of my mom's friends who is a 3rd grade teacher about shadowing her once I move back to Virginia and she is more than happy to. It's all very exciting and I can't wait to go back to school. Yes, I hate tests and writing long research papers, but really I love school. Nerdy I know.

We are getting the dogs micro-chipped tomorrow morning. It is a bit expensive at our vet, $50 each. But I trust them. On base it was going to cost $25 for the first time vet visit and $25 for the chip. Since the price would end up being the same I'll stick with the ones we know. The kitten will be chipped on Thursday. One expensive week at the vet! But with moving and staying at different houses (my parents, E's parents, E's brother) I will feel much better knowing that if something happened we have a better chance of finding my babies again!

My sister arrives in 5 days!!! I'm so excited that she is coming back! Although we did almost all of the touristy things in Pensacola last time it will be nice to have her here again. My parents are arriving on Sunday night. It is going to be nice to have everyone here because my sister and I wont be back to Virginia before my dad's possible departure date for Afghanistan. Which I can't believe is almost here! Time is flying by!!

  1. I think it's a FANTASTIC idea to have your pets chipped! I was reading just recently about a stray dog that was found who HAD one, and the owners were actually in the next STATE! They were reunited! Yay!

    Have a BLAST with your family, enjoy!!

  3. Oh goodness, I feel much better having paid $35 to microchip my puppy! it's so worth it for that peace of mind, though!

    Hope you have a wonderful time with your family.

  4. Have fun with your family! Is it warming up down there? We're going to Atlanta for spring break and I'm really hoping the south warms up by then!!!

  6. Good luck with the career change. It will be worth it if you end up happier in the long run. Both of my dogs were chipped when I got them, but I would have done it if they weren't. It's so scary to think about something happening and them getting lost.

  7. That is a very interesting idea about the chip. I don't know anything about it. We have 3 dogs and it would be really devistating if any of them were to go missing. I need to find out more info on it, we might could do one at a time!!! I too am thinking of a career change, its such a scary thing! I'll keep you in my prayers!
