Phew! Don't know about ya'll but, for the last three weeks we seem to be passing around the same mutation of a virus to one another. I get one person cleared up from the Ick and another comes down ill to include myself. Latest victim in this Greek trajedy is Saenz. However, he should be up and about if my recovery is any indication by tomorrow.
Lisa is packing up her room today; her mother is picking her up tonight. After a two week stay in San Antonio; Lisa is planning to move to California to live with some friends to find 'happiness'.
Looking back at parental history, hubby at age twenty was gaining his feet, her mom by 20 was married to her dad with two boys, and I was serving in the Air Force in the Philippines. Though we both feel it is a mistake to undertake such an endeavor without: familial support, a steady job, financial plan & fallback monies, solid work ethic, and education but, we will be here in case she needs a soft place to land. Hubby and I wish her a smooth path into adulthood.
Update on the Volvo, seems the seller did not notarize the proper forms and we have to make a trip back to San Antonio to get the corrected forms. (sigh -- I am antsy to hit the tar with boys in tow.) All is good though since I still have a til Monday next week to get the car registered under our names. When we finish perhaps we will take a side trip since we will already be in San Antonio. Who knows -- our lives and schedules are fluid.
Another thing I managed to get done this week is to get a copy in the mail of a 'release of lien' from Ford Motor Credit for Bubba Junior, a 1995 Ford Ranger I bought as my first vehicle. Yeppers, I tend to hold on to things until they are ready for the junkyard or longer. In 2002, we left Bubba at my mom's house in storage when we were to be stationed in Portugal. Well she asked if I could send her the title so, she could use the truck. No problem since it had been sitting at her house forever and I felt guilty about the truck being there so long. I went looking for the truck's paperwork to my chagrin --- it was lost in the five or more moves since 2002.
So then began my journey of acquiring a proper duplicate copy of the title and such through the Texas DMV. It has been over a year but, this week I have finally gotten one step closer to acquiring the correct paperwork to sign over Bubba to her. What a journey of red tape it has been: Fill out Form A and send to Organization B & you can acquire Signature Z before getting to Step 2. (WHAT A MESS!) Anywhosits, after one phone call and $17 later and talking with a knowledgeable person at Ford Motor Credit; a release of lien is on its way. Next step, no clue yet I have made some progress finally. SORRY MOM
Both puppies made it through their surgery fine. They are still harassing the hens and chasing rabbits they find in the yard. Once Sonic moves out Banjo will not be the little follower and will probably spend his days cowering on the back porch. It is a huge piece of mind knowing they will not be responsible for any more strays in the area. While I love the dogs and made sure they are up to date on shots to include neutering; not everyone feels the same way. One day though, we will get a bottle fed puppy (large bred) hand raise it and train it to be protective around chicks, rabbits, lambs, and such. The only way to ensure the a dog will not become bird aggressive.
I just want to wish you all well. And I hope none of ya'll experience the 'gift that keeps giving' -- winter ick. Talk soon,
