Popping in

...to say thank you so much for all your kind thoughts, warm hugs and well wishes. I can't tell you how much it has meant to me, even though I've been so silent. And I promise to tell you more than what follows in this post, but for now I thought a little update was in order!

Right now I'm back in the wine country with my family. Mr. Romi's shoulder surgery was longer than expected, but successful, and - as long as we are able to force him (and I do mean force him) to take it easy - he is in line for a 100% recovery. Woot! I didn't realize how stressed I was about it until I slept 13 hours the night he came home. Heh. And he's the one on pain killers! He wanted to leave today, but I convinced him to stay a bit longer and get past those first few days before the long drive back.

This is what we are driving back to.
Can you guess where it is?

And this is who we have with us while we're staying here.
That's Otto, the Miniature Schnauzer. He'll be coming back with us too. :)

Well, I'm sitting here at a cafe and I've got to run! Much to do. More later!

Thank you all again. Your comments have meant the world to me!

Barking mad. Heehee. Mr. Romi had reserved him and he was ready to take on Bear's birthday. I wasn't convinced at the time but he is a little walking puddle of joy and a great stress reliever. He is beyond precious!

OH MY GOODNESS!!! Otto is adorable. He looks a bit like my little Jewell who is truely a jewel. and yes they are a puddle at that point. and fantastic stress relievers. How can you feel stressed when they spend the day making you laugh. Congrats on the new addition, and glad to hear that Mr. Romi is doing well.

May I suggest starting bark training immediately? Those miniature schnauzers sometimes become quite the barkers (people walking, squirrels, doorbells, you name it). My aunt has two that I watch from time to time and it is AWFUL. They bark all the time. I have a lab, she only barks when outside, or if she is really needs us to know about something outside (this is usually the gas guy or meter reader). Best trick I've found it to partially fill an empty jar with nails and change and shake it when they bark. You'll pat yourself on the back later that you don't have a yipper!

I love Otto!

And I'm so glad Mr.Romi is doing well.

And I'm guessing Nevada. Lovely picture of the mountains.

Nothing like getting things all done at once. I can't imagine all that but when things come together, I guess you have to roll with it. I know the knitting and huggable puppy and kidlet (he's adorable, too) will all help. Tell Mr. Romi that yes, he really has to rest or else the recovery will take much longer. Hugs coming at you all.

Glad to hear the surgery went well. Mr. Romi will never take it easy with a new puppy around! Are you going to Montana or Colorado?

The charming little puppy that I have seen in a bit. Take care and I wish you all much healing.

At least a miniature Schnauzer won't put that much pulling force on the end of the leash when Mr R takes him for a walk.

Continued good wishes through all these changes!

Ooooooo--it looks like your new home may be just over the mountain from me!! I'm so glad that Mr. Romi had a good result and I'm seriously jealous of your puppy! (Teehee--puddle of joy. Best.Description.EVER!)

My goodness, yes, that's a lot of life in one month. Sad you are leaving wine country, but hope the new adventure will turn out well.

Glad Mr. Romi its doing well. He must rest or risk re-injury which can lead to additional surgery. Surely that would motivate him? Congrats on surviving a move, surgery stress & a new puppy. Looking forward to hearing more. Take care.

Yeah, you better move so I don't come steal that adorable doggie!

Hope everyone is well and my guess is Nevada. Flat then mountains equals Nevada in my book. Take care!

Hope all is well... I have a white Mini and they're really fun and the males are especially affectionate and "protective" of your yard - especially from squirrels and people walking by and also when someone rings the doorbell (as someone had posted). But luckily, he's not a barker - just occassionally when I tease him. He doesn't like putting on the sweater I tried to knit him, though...

I hope Mr. Romi has a quick recovery, and I'm looking forward to hearing about your new adventures! Hope all of your transitions are smooth as possible.
