Please excuse the mess. I'm in the process of moving to a new server and new blogging software. It'll be a while before this place gets to be looking like normal again.

A Thanksgiving filled with firsts. First Thanksgiving in the new house. First time we've hosted Thanksgiving. First time using our new dining room table. First time using our good china and silverware.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Our first snow in the new house. I thought we were just going to get a few flurries tomorrow morning, but the grass is covered already.

So I'm leaving my house this morning, feeling like I've forgotten something. Cisco's giving me this look like "what do you mean you're leaving me." (Which probably means he'll tear something up today.) I'm cruising along to work (my 55 minute drive took me all of 20 minutes today -- thank you to everyone who took today off), called the vet to get some tick preventative (we've pulled 3 ticks off of Berkley in the last couple of weeks), so over all it was a very productive morning.

I get to work, and I'm getting everything out of the car and oh look, I forgot my purse! So I have

DOH! We're off to a great start.

Of course I had to call Chris who after a good laugh agreed to take me out for lunch.

And in other randomness for this morning...

Happy Day before Thanksgiving!

Berkley got his first Novice Standard Preferred Leg today! This weekends trial was in Leesburg and they're never that close to home so I figured it would good experience for him to get used to being in his crate and yes, he still did have to stay in his crate and behave when I came to get Cisco (we had major issues with this the first time I took them both to a trial). And if he was a giant pain, it was close enough I could take him home. Well, he did great! He dropped a bar and had weave issues in Jumpers, but did beautifully in Standard. Not only was it his first leg, but it was a clean run and he got first. Whoo Hoo!

Now Cisco, is another story. We had moments of brilliance and then we'd spaz out. Oh well tomorrow is another day...

It's been a while since I've updated this. Lets see... My hair is now brown. I hadn't been happy with my last couple sets of highlights so I really didn't want to pay to have them touched up and my roots were coming in dark, so I went dark -- maybe I can get away from coloring my hair. probably not.

Last weekend Cisco qualified in Starters Pairs and Jumpers at the TAG trial in Sterling.

The first week at the new job was overwhelming. I started off the week in tears and ready to quit, but now it might be ok. I'm going to give it a chance. We'll have to wait and see how it goes.

Starting work on the family calendar this weekend. Thanks to everyone who sent in submissions.
