A New House and a Puppy!

Phew....after this post I'll have you all caught up on the last month! What a crazy time for work (TOO many hours!) and running (TOO many kilometers) and housework (NEVER enough time!) haha!

So....exciting news! My brother and I bought a house together!!!!!! We split evenly on a raised bungalow with separate entrances. He'll live in the walk-out basement with Amanda and Reimer, and I'll live in the upper part! We don't move until Sept. 1st....but I'm so so so excited! I'm really glad that we thought of this option and were able to do it civilly and with the help of our parents, and find something we could all decide on. After living in a basement apartment underneath a couple of 75 year olds who (although I love them dearly) sometimes drive me nuts...this is a HUGE deal for me :-) Here it is!

And, even more exciting, is that assuming all goes as planned, I'm getting a puppy in the fall!!!!! I fell in love with the Shiloh Shepherd breed and I CAN'T WAIT to have one! Any name suggestions? I'm pretty set on Finn for a male dog....full name being Finnigan of course, but I'll call him Finn. Still open to suggestions though. And of course, if his personality dictates a different name, I won't be totally set on Finn. Maybe Roxy for a girl? Not sure. Here's a pic...just a random Shiloh from google images LOL!


  1. Congratulations! Owning a home is fun and a lot of work at the same time but nothing is as good as your own forever space!

  2. Wow, what a step, Congratulations on your wonderful home. Think of all the empty walls ;)
    You know, if you name your puppy "Comeon" or" Comear" he/she will always come when you call.
    Be always in stitches

  3. read all your updates - great race!! And CONGRATULATIONS on your purchase. I know that you had issues with roommates occassionally too and that will be solved. How cool about both puppies - the golden and your future baby!
