Houston, the Eagle has landed

and so has the menagerie.

The Grande Dame of the brood, Georgie, my first dog, and RI resident (read: she was commandeered by my Mother when I moved to Colorado four (4) years ago), who is at least thirteen (13) years old, survived surgery today: the removal of a small orange-sized oozing cyst-tumor-thingy. It's being biopsied. The vet couldn't get it all. It was like the Energizer Bunny, she reported.

Being home prior to the possible life-ending surgery was the goal, and we achieved it. All six (6) of us arrived in southern RI at 9.22 PM on Monday evening, Memorial Day.

Whew. What a ride.


Happy birthday to my dear sister.


Edited to add: My folks place is about three (3) hours from where I will live. The movers will most likely deliver my stuff on Sunday, June 4. I have new job meetings June 6, 7, 8; 20th high school reunion June 9-11.

The journey is not over yet.

Final point of reference: full-time, fancy new job begins officially on Wednesday, July 5.

Hurray you and yours made it in one piece. So what are you doing online shouldn't you be unpacking?! ;)

Amby said...

I'm glad you all made it in one piece with sanity intact! I'll keep my fingers crossed that you get some positive news back from the vet as well...

Rain said...

I hope all goes well with Georgie.

Glad you all got there ok.

Sarah said...


glad you made it.

Hope doggy is OK. Pet stuff is so hard for me to deal with.


Areli said...

Oh, I hope Georgie makes a full recovery.

I am glad you get a bit of a rest, before you have to start unpacking, enjoy it and your family.

Sending Georgie well wishes...

And a yay for brand spanking new job :)

Betsey said...

Good that you made it to RI in time for Georgie. And good luck with the rest of the move and starting the new job.

Welcome! I can't believe you made it from Missouri to Rhode Island by car in 36 hours. My husband and I make that trip every Thanksgiving by air and I swear it takes that long.

Glad the most car-intensive part of our journey is over. Enjoy all the activity coming up. And let me know when we'll have our own mini RI stitch and bitch!
