Here is what is happening in Doodleland:
- Darling Petunia Hannah is doing well at school and just got a promotion at work. She is on track there to get her dog grooming certificate and will soon be working full time at a store down south. She assures me that her school will not suffer and I certainly believe her. Very proud mom!
- Alexander the Great is also doing well in school and loves being home instead of in the dorms. He made National Honor Society! Very proud mom!
- Prince Charming Michael is still making the extra long commute to San Antonio everyday, but is doing great at work. He loves working on cutting edge tech and finding new uses for it. His efforts have brought his division many new prospects for contracts and expansion. Very proud wife!
- Witchy Mom Me got promoted out of my job as manager of the Round Rock store’s frame shop and am now Operations Manager (Assistant Manager, but paid hourly) at my original store here in Georgetown. More hours and responsibility, but much shorter drive. Yay, me!
Busy life means less time to be creative but we’re each doing the best that we can. I am trying to keep up my journal. Need to make doodle time, though! Hannah is trying to knit and crochet in her down time. Alex and Michael work in their gaming time as much as possible.
It’s rare for us all to be together for family game time these days. But that just makes the times where we’re all together (and awake) more special!
Gladys passed away just before Christmas, so the house feels a little empty around knee level. She is the dog that Alex and Hannah grew up with so it was very difficult. Dosh and Rupert are doing a good job of keeping us busy with other puppy things so that we are not too sad for too long, though.
