Isn't she adorable? How could you not fall in love with that face? She's a wonderful addition to our family and we just love her to pieces!
In other news, my husband was laid off from his job of 17 years on January 3rd, which was a bit of a surprise. He worked for a small plumbing company and business had been slow the last couple of years but it was still kind of a shock when he was let go. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise though as he desparately needed a hip replacement and never felt he could take the time off work to get it done so this was the perfect opportunity to have the surgery while he is unemployed. He had the surgery two weeks ago tomorrow and is doing exceptionally well! He just graduated from the walker to the cane and he is moving better everyday! Once he is all healed and gets the go ahead from the doctor to go back to work he will start the job search for a new, hopefully more secure job with a larger company. He is also toying with the idea of going into business for himself but that's a ways ahead and right now we are just concentrating on him getting his strength and mobility back and being pain free for the first time in a number of years.
That's about all the major news for now, I'm happy to be back and I really want to participate in some challenges with several of my favorite stamp companies so be on the lookout for more posts from me!
