This last week I have been trying my best to pack up the house to move. Saturday morning things started to hit me. Boxes lay half packed, unpacked, filled and marked all around me. I had a moment of sadness.
This house was nothing but a shell. Nothing but unfulfilled memories and hopes for a future here for my children...my family. The neighborhood where we could walk out our front door to go trick or treating and catch the bus. The beautiful mantel decorated with all our stockings, where my kids could imagine Santa dropping down the fireplace. Warm summer days spent outside in our backyard...
...All to never happen....
It's not necessarily the memories that wont be made as it is the moments I had dreamed and hoped for are no longer there. New ones I'm sure will fill there place as we move into our new "home" and settle into our new routine.
It is bitter/sweet to say the least. To look around and see what never was.

Anyone who knows me, knows I love me a good blog, a cute dog, and a good story. Here's a quick run-down of the story of a cute dog on a blog. I'll try not to rhyme anymore :).
Bye Bye Pie's Puppy
There's this blog I like to check in on everyday, Bye Bye Pie. The gal is funny, there is some language if you are sensitive but overall it's worth it for the "pet-speak". She is a huge animal lover and blogs about real life. Anyways, while she was in her local pet store, someone left a puppy in a box in her car. She can't keep the puppy because she already has a full house. The lady was interviewed on the local news and a new home has been found. I'll let you read up on it here.
