Where the crap did July go...

We had an interesting July...and I'm telling you it felt like it passed in only a couple of days. On June 30th we moved out of a place we called home for two years, and I'll seriously miss it and the memories we made there were irreplaceable. We had to ship our dog babies off because the couple of different places we were staying at wouldn't allow for animals. Guster stayed with my sister Kelly and her hubby and their two canine boys Wrigley and Jackson. Rowdy stayed with my other sister Michelle and her hubs Chris and the joke is that he, in fact, went to fat camp. He had packed on the pounds this fall after we brought Gus home and since Michelle had recently rehabilitated her grossly overweight pug, Molly, it seemed to be a great fit. We stayed the duration at our friends Fran and Ron's house. They were wildly gracious hosts and it certainly didn't hurt that Franny went to culinary school which in turn provided us with some flipping fantastic 4th of July cake with homemade whipped cream icing...among other delights. So to recap in the month of July...
We moved four times, flew two times, drove through three states, saw a bear on multiple occasions, a black panther (the actual animal NOT the group) and trained a new girl at work in two weeks so I could go on my vacation worry free.
This Wednesday we will finish our last foster parent class. It makes me sad...I seriously will miss these people and the passion that we share. I'm making Chicken 'n Dumplings which I'm expecting to turn out perfectly (heheee). Last weeks class Anna (our teacher) told us she wouldn't be here for the last one. It made me super sad because I'm a closure kind of girl, and I like to mentally prepare myself for things like that. I would have gotten her a card, a treat, or something but no she told us as we were walking out...I know it won't be the last that I see of her. We have to schedule a few meetings and such in order to finalize some things but I'm a weirdo...I thought I had mentioned that before?
Goodbye July 2010...if you were this wild and crazy I can't even imagine what July 2011 will look like...
