Unfortunately, the military would also prefer that there are no dogs in life. The cabins at the lake remained unrented, no dogs allowed. However, they were willing to rent a small, tiny, minute trailer. A FEMA trailer. Make alternative plans if a disaster heads your way.
I discovered a few things about myself during reflection time at the lake. I am claustrophobic, OK I already knew that. I cannot relax in 400 square feet.. With a husband, two kids, and a lab. One of the kids returned to Pittsburgh, leaving us a little more space.
I love being near water. Keep that in mind for future moves.
I hate to throw out good food. So, we had the duck confit with some peaches warmed in duck fat and sprinkled with pepper. Delicious, I will make duck confit again.
I threw out the duck fat. I had to restrain myself from walking up to the RVs and seeing if they wanted it.
We have moved back into the city for a few nights, Drury Inns accept dogs. Scout preferred the lake. Menopausal women prefer air conditioning.
We are going to help with a youth retreat and then we will drive across the country. Will we own a house? Who knows. It is much more complex than the last time we bought a house.
