Clarice is having trouble adjusting to the new house so we've been the vet three times already. She's been throwing up almost daily and we've been doing everything we can do to not stress her. She's been wearing a calming collar, we're spraying calming spray everywhere, changed her diet, her food locations, ect......but she's still having some problems. Hopefully we can get some relief for her soon. Poor little girl is just not quite herself and that's hard for us as well.
We're not even completely unpacked yet but we've started making changes to make this house our home already! We have a lot of plans but as we all know that takes time and money plus a lot of patience so I'm trying to adjust my expections. I know this will sound weird but we've only bought one preowned home in all our married years. I'm used to moving into a new house that's exactly what I want, painted colors that I chose, ect..... but we'll get there. It sounds like I'm whining and spoiled but trust me this house is almost perfect with such amazing views that the rest doesn't matter that much. The home came with a hot tub on the back deck that we had absolutely no interest in owning so I listed it on CL the first week to give away. We had a taker almost within the first 10 minutes because we only asked that they bring help to move it and that was all. Of course, they had to get it up the side of the mountain to take it home but they did. Now here's the really weird part, the couple comes to look at the tub and we get to talking because they just relocated here from SC so just chatting away about Asheville, places to eat, shop, ect..... I mentioned that we moved from Atlanta area and they asked where so I say North GA mountains about 45 minutes from Atl...we chat a little longer and she said we have a chiroptor that we love in Atl and we're willing to make the drive to see him. She tells me that they attended church with the guy's parents and used him until he moved away then have traveled to see him when her back issues got so bad. She then said "Dr Clayton is worth traveling hours to see" and for some reason I just made the connection that her Dr Clayton is my Dr Clayton Willimas in Cumming. Seriously!!! It's a small, small world. And I agree with her that Clayton's adjustment is well worth driving a couple of hours for but who would have thought we'd know and use the same DR. and I met her on Craigs List.....Crazy!
Now for the best news EVER....I'm a Great Aunt to a beautiful little girl names Zeva Ellis and she is just so stinking cute. I can't quit looking at her pictures and just grinning like an idiot. I love this little gal with all my heart and I haven't even met her yet. I know when Zared was born I felt like my heart just exploded because I love that kid so much but knowing he's a daddy to this precious little one takes it to a whole new level.
Do something today that makes you smile!
