Fill 'Er Up!
I was talking to a friend this morning and the topic of a "cup half full" or a "cup half empty" came up in conversation. And I realized that I am definitely a realist, rather than "half empty" or "half full" the thought that popped into my brain is - well is the cup being filled or drank? What's going on with that cup?
We've been homeless since May! Can you believe it? I can. Dante and Ziva have been super troopers though! Where personally I've struggled with frustration they've been happy campers - in a very literal sense.

Thank doggy for flexible dogs! In the very beginning they just thought it was one big party. After our home sold we temporarily moved in with my parents (Doggy Disneyland HERE) while we figured where we were going to live in Southern Oregon. We changed from purchasing a house to deciding to build one (because no homes were available, it's a HOT market down here!). We then had some back and forth with a seller over their property before we finally had a sale agreement.
While not the most pleasant experience thus far, we close on our dream property in a month and we're super excited to start #building !! 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻 #dreamhome #homebuilding #newconstruction #oregonbeauty #smallthingsmatter #thistle #thistleflower #beauty #nature #flowerpower #flowers #flowerstagram
After we had our new property in contract we then had a bunch of paperwork and an itemized list of things "to do" in order to get our construction loan underway. In the meantime Dz Dog Dad was staying with a friend in Southern Oregon while we puzzled out how to get myself and the Dz Dogs down to him. (Traveling With Large Dogs HERE) Long story shorter... we purchased my parents RV and moved our little family (minus the cats, my mom is watching them. THANKS MOM!!) to our friends property in the RV. Finally Moved to Southern Oregon HERE Whew....
|That was tiring...|
After everything we've been through we could certainly be cranky and glass half empty kind of people. But a lesson from the dogs.
FILL up that darn cup, TOSS it back like a shot,
and KEEP ON KEEPING ON!
and KEEP ON KEEPING ON!
And Great News!! We're finally closing on our property!
Patience & Persistence Pays Off!
