Just in case you were thinking of sending me a card, it’s my birthday in another twelve days. Some people think that the number 13 is unlucky, but it was certainly lucky for me when I was born on it. The sad part is that I’m going to be celebrating my birthday in kennels and won’t see my Mistress until the following day. It wouldn’t feel so bad if I didn’t know that Shadow would be with them even though I won’t. Oh well, I guess it can’t be helped.
The other exciting thought is that in theory, our new house will be finished next month. Of course the difference between theory and practice may be a few weeks work, but it’s exciting to think we are almost at the original planned completion date. We never thought that we’d be moving in for Christmas, so there isn’t a major disappointment and as my Mistress has said, if the job is worth doing, it’s worth doing properly. With my birthday and Christmas, the time will soon fly by and we’ll be moving in before we know it. The main hope is that we can be there before any snowy weather means we can’t get off the drive here. At least if we can park the car up there again we won’t risk being totally snowed in again.
I jumped up the other day in my excitement that my Mistress had come home. I accidentally caught my tooth on her knuckle. She took it very well as she mopped up the blood, but the bruising has meant that her knuckle has been quite painful for a few days. I ought to know better, but I do still get so excited to see her.
