I Thought I'd Lost You!


I guess everyone's tired of seeing my wildflowers....  but that's all I have for now...  Nothing else is blooming yet.

It's been a busy time.  Next week is my final week of work, then a week off, then my new business will open.    Today we went to WCBC studio to record "Listen Up" segments for  radio.  This is just one form of advertising that we're going with.  


The newspaper will be covering our grand opening and maybe our ear carving.  


Our meeting in Fredericksburg,Va. was great.  The Hilton we stayed in was luxurious and clean and the meeting was top notch.  We met a couple who used to work for Miracle Ear, who had left there to go on their own... just as we are doing.  They had so much to offer.  We were given their card immediately and told to call anytime.


I'm starting to get really excited!!  


This morning I took Gracie over to the 'home office' and, as I often do, I turned her loose with her leash still attached, after pushing the door closed.  I started looking through some things on my desk and taking care of some business, then I turned around and called for her and I noticed the door was wide open!!  My heart dropped!!  We live along a busy highway and it's always been my fear that Gracie would get out and run onto the road.


Dear Diary,
Mom.  What can I tell you about her?  She's a little do-de-do-do ~insert twilight zone theme song here~  She came out of the office today first yelling "Gracie!"  
then it was "H-e-l-l-o  g-i-r-l. . ." i-n s-l-o-w m-o-t-i-o-n ~ ~  then she GRABBED my leash and hugged me real tight like she'd never let me go and  she kept saying things like, "I thought I'd lost you!"  Geesh.  I was just laying on the porch getting some sun and watching the guys cutting down trees along the highway.  She really needs to get a grip.  Gracie.
