I'm back!

Just wanted everyone to know that I'm still alive...  haha.  This past week of vacation was busy!  Here's what we accomplished on the floor.
It was not super easy, but not super difficult either.  Ev and I did have a hard time getting started until Johanna and Ben came over and helped.  They had just done their floor recently so got us going on it.  After the first couple rows were in, it went somewhat smoothly.  Keep in mind that we have an old house and I really don't think there is a square wall in the place..  haha.  At any rate, we have the one room finished and are pleased.  The second room is ready for us to begin laying flooring, but that may be a project for another weekend or two.  The bedroom carpeting has not been removed, but it will be the third room to get the laminate. 

And here's the newest addition to our family.
Addison, or Addy for short, has some pretty big paws to fill, but she's already on the way to completely stealing our hearts!  Oh, who am I kidding - she already has!  This pup has had a rough start.  She was adopted out over Labor Day Weekend and met with a bad accident which resulted in a broken leg.  The very next day she was relinquished back to the shelter because the people who adopted her could not afford the vet bill to repair her broken leg.  She had a cast on for weeks after surgery to insert a pin in her leg.  When we picked her up Thursday the cast had just been removed.  She had been kept in a cage for the majority of her time at the shelter, before and after the injury.

When we brought her home she went wild in our fenced in back yard!  We really should have corralled her because that wasn't good for her to do right after getting out of her cast.  We didn't let her do it too long, but the next day all she did was sleep!  She does limp on the leg right now, but gets around pretty good.  It's going to take time and patience and love to get her to trust us and be on the way to being a top notch doggy.  We are up to the challenge!  She already has connected with Ev and I, and comes running to us in her lopsided way whenever she comes in from outside.

So that's it for tonight.  I'm winding down and close to calling it a night.  Back to the grind tomorrow.

That floor looks fantastic! We are so pleased with ours - we didn't do it ourselves though, the guy put it down in less than a day! We are so hopeless with the house things, it would have been a disaster.

Beautiful floor. I'm sure you will enjoy it!

And it will be fun to watch her grow into her paws. (At one point when she was two, my daughter had to grow into her hands and feet too!)
