FINALLY!

Summer break arrived this week! It was way overdue thanks to the 2009 Ice Storm of Death that we suffered through this past Winter. But it's here and I am so looking forward to it! My plans for the summer include:
  1. Rehearsal for Grease(I'm in our community theater production of Grease!!! Did I tell you?)
  2. Reading
  3. Catching up on Movies/DVR'd things
  4. Sewing
  5. Catching up on some things that need to be done around the house.
  6. Maybe a few day trips for shopping/antique malls/flea markets
Now I know that doesn't sound very exciting, but last summer I went to Europe, and that was enough excitement to last me years! Besides, we start back to school on August 4th! Yikes! So only a few weeks of actual summer to enjoy this year and the less I'm doing, the longer it'll seem, right?

The most exciting thing going on this summer??? We're getting a puppy!! Yay! I am so excited...I've wanted a dog forever! I love dogs, and growing up, we always had dogs around the house of every shape size and mixed breed! And even though he only had maybe two dogs growing up, Mark loves any and all animals.

We've worried about having a dog in the same house with 2, then 3, then 4 cats. But we've finally decided(after 21 years) that we have plenty of room in our home(and hearts) for one more set of paws...and there are sooo many dogs out there looking for homes that it was time for us to do our part to help them! I've been scouring Petfinder non stop and have made a few contacts that didn't work out...but have kept up the search and now I have an appointment to meet up with this little sweetie on Monday. Her name is Mya...she's another rescue dog that I saw on petfinder.com. Her info is here. I'm praying that we pass the application process and home visit and that Mya passes the "cat test" so that we can adopt her.

Oh gosh...what comment to leave first! Mya is the BOMB! I hope you got to adopt her. I went to the site and it said 'adopted' next to her name...fingers crossed!
As for GREASE! YEAH! YOU! I would love to do something like that. I genuinely miss singing. I never acted though. hmmmmm....
