Okay, all... I guess it's time to make the switch over to Bloglovin!  I hate change and always get fussy when the internet forces me to abandon my old ways, but I've been scrolling through Bloglovin' this morning and it's so easy to use that I think I'll be fine ;)  Hope you'll all come join me over there before Google Reader sucks my blog into the abyss...

Today we had to put our sweet elderly dog down when his body succumbed to the cancer we hadn't even known he'd had.  I left work to say goodbye to him at the hospital and stayed until he was gone.  He was a happy, handsome dog who was much loved and will be much missed.  Even if all dogs don't go to heaven, he sure will.  We'll always love you, Merlin.

Pardon my absence, please, I've been preoccupied ...
...with planning the Great American Road Trip!

On May 18, K and I will be packing up the station wagon and embarking on the adventure of a lifetime, spending three months crossing and re-crossing the US of A.  I have wanted to go on this trip since I was in high school, and (ten years later...) it's finally happening!  This is part of the reason why I haven't been shopping for new clothes to blog about (or shopping for anything, really, except sneakers and camping gear), and have been generally a miser about money for the past many months.  It will be tight, and when we return I will be unbelievably broke, but this is one of those things that I just HAVE to do in my life, and now is the time.  The blog will likely change a bit.  Or a lot.  And that's okay with me, I'm ready for an evolution. 

I hope you'll come along for the ride!
