I Am Back!

Good morning! I am sorry to have dropped off abruptly but there has been a lot going on here. First off,  for those of you that do not know I have been spending the winter in Wisconsin. I have work and family there and so for the last three months I have been enjoying the icy cold air, the constant snow and all the rest.

Last weekend my husband and I packed up the car, our pup and various belongings and made the drive home. We stopped along to way in West Virginia to pick up our newest family member, Paris! We did not name her, she was named by the breeder but we love the name and so we are keeping it.

She is a little black and tan sweetheart of of dachshund, six months old and a little pistol. I forgot how much energy a puppy has. Munchen is 13 years old and has slowed down a bit so we are learning to adjust to new sleep patterns, eating patterns etc.

Not to mention the fact that when I arrived home it was still Christmas! Yes, the trees are still up, the stocking are still hung and there are cherry blossoms in the yard. It is a little surreal.

I have been sorting three months worth of  mail, about 75 magazines and catalogs, packages and more. Unfortunately, I simply did not have the energy to blog.

I am settled in and will be back posting this week on my regular schedule. I hope that you have a great day! I missed visiting you and will be around later to catch up with your blogs.
