Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

1. Today is my last Monday before Spring Break. That sentence makes me do a happy dance. I am more than ready. We don't have any plans for Spring Break. I'm just ready to sleep in and relax. Actually, I probably won't do much of that either. I have a project that I've been working on that I will be tackling next week. I need to get it finished. It's one of those secrets that I'm dying to share with you. And I will when the time is right.

2. The husband and I spent the weekend driving around looking at houses. We've always thought we would buy land and build. But as things are changing, it makes more sense to buy an existing home. We actually found a house that we both love yesterday. As soon as we walked in I began picturing us there in the future and being a family in that house. It is an older house and has it's imperfections, yet it seems perfect for us. We are talking about it, doing our research, and praying about it. I'm trying not to get too excited too quick. A lot has to work out for us to buy this house. I'm trusting that if it is where God wants us to be, he'll take care of everything.

3. The husband is out of town. Thankfully its a short trip. He will be back tomorrow evening. I just prefer him to be home with me. I'm praising God that all his traveling is far less now that it has been this past year.

4. This weekend we found a growth/bump on Liberty's nose. It doesn't seem to bother her when we touch it, but it definitely got our curiosity up. Andrew had me google it Saturday night. Bad idea!! They always put worse case scenario on the Internet. The first thing that popped up was cancer!!! Not what I needed to read. Of course there were a million other possibilities such as excessive licking, allergies, bee sting, dog acne, etc. Yes, dog acne! Who knew? But of course my mind focus on cancer. I'm sure it's nothing. Andrew is supposed to call and get her and Liam an appointment at the vet this week. It's time for their yearly check up. Hopefully they will be able to tell us something about her nose growth.


  1. My Cali gets those bumps, the Vet removed one on her head, then years later another one on her foot, she has a tiny one on her eye lid now, she is 18 years old:) She alwasy did fine:) but I alwyas worried:( Can't wait to know your project and surprize:) or should I say secret:) if I can help you with your real Estate I would love too help:) hugs

  2. Well I sure hope nothing is wrong with Liberty!! Keep us updated!

  3. How exciting about a house hunt! And hope your Liberty is okay!

  4. Mollie gets bumps too. the vet told us that they are oil glands that get clogged. i have to pop them when i can (yuck!) because if they get hard, they can turn into a cyst, and depending on where it is on her body, it could be hard to remove. She had one removed from her tail a couple of years ago. She did fine, but like you, I was worried to death. She gets them frequently though, and now that i know what they are and what to do about them, it doesnt bother me as much. I hope your baby gets a good report at the vet and that it is something simple. :)
