|Toby and I my last month in Austin|
Then Jeff moved away and Toby lived with Jeff's roommate. Then Jeff's roommate moved away and into an apartment and left Toby with his mom. And quickly after that, Jeff received a call from his roommate's mom to come get the dog... that was two weeks ago.
Since then Toby has already proven true every fear I have had regarding getting a dog, including being sick and costing money.
On another note, even though Toby is slow and old, it didn't stop him on day 1 from digging up my bell pepper plants that had recently sprouted.

For my first planting efforts, if I can use any of these in a meal, just once, I'll call it a success. Our backyard isn't the only happening thing around the house though. We finally found a dresser.

After finding it online from a store in California, calling the manufacturer, calling a local wholesaler, calling a local retailer, and then finally contacting the wholesaler again, the wholesaler cordially agreed to sell it to us. Yay yay yay! And now my high school freshman furniture set is officially in the guest bedroom.

And for the most exciting piece of news... our hallway/living/dining room remodel timeline has been set! Now = prep prep prep. June 2 & 3 = family help days and kick-off. The week after = Jeff and I off to work work work. And after that = finish it out.
Hooray for prep officially starting this weekend! Wish us much luck and motivation! We need it.
