Tuxie Tuesday: Update on Us

Hello all!  Dragonheart here.  I've discovered that the desk makes a wonderful spot to lie in the sun, now that it's in a new position, after being moved around during the staging of our house.



We weren't around on the weekend, and won't be next weekend either, because currently our dad is only home on the weekends, so we and our mom are spending lots of time with him when he's home. He had to report for duty at his new posting the day after Labour Day, and that city is about a 4 hour drive away, so he stays there during the week, and comes home on weekends.  He will continue to do that until we actually move!  Although next weekend our humans are going up to Ottawa for a very special race, the Army Run, which raises money for Soldier On, which helps injured and disabled soldiers.

After that, we move into a hotel on September 26th, when movers will arrive to pack up all our stuff, then load it, and then move it to our new city.  Then we will move into a hotel in our new city, until our new home is ready on October 13th.  So we will be living in hotels for quite some time.  Merlin and I have done it before, when we moved from Germany all the way to Edmonton, Alberta, and again when we moved from Alberta to Ontario.  This time it will be a much closer move, but because of the closing dates on the houses, we'll still be in hotels for a long time.

Our mom is still looking for work as a registered dietitian, and is busy customizing her resume and cover letter for all the jobs she applies to.  We don't mind if she stays home to be with us, but we know she would like to be working.

Until she finds a permanent job as a dietitian, she is designing scrapbook pages.  She is offering her services for $10 for a page with up to 3 photos, $15 for a page with 4 or more photos.  You can see her gallery here.  She is able to make pages with any of the kits that you see in her gallery, and she also has some additional cat- and pet-related kits in her supplies.  If you would like a page made, please contact us!  Thanks!

Love the scrapbook pages! I try and craft a bit but don't get around to it as much as I'd like to. Good luck on job hunting.

Living in a hotel is like being on vacation! Hopefully everything goes smoothly for all of you.
