Went for a long walk with Izzy this morning and ran into my neighbor and friend with her dog. Both of our dogs are rescues. The first time they met it was a high pitched bark feast complete with snarling...now they sniff, paw and play with one another. They pranced along as my girlfriend walked behind talking.
I took a chance and let Izzy be loose in the house, instead of in her crate. I went to pick up my new glasses and ran some errands. I was gone almost three hours. When I opened the front door, she had just come in from the back yard through the doggy door. The house was as I left it. She ran to me and jumped on me with exuberance. I am so very proud of her!
I began to prepare all the paperwork for our Reverse Mortgage application. My husband called from work and told me he was on his way to pick me up. Our appointment was at 5pm. We signed an inch thick pile of papers, ordered our appraisal and paid for it. The Appraisal is our next step. I leave for California on the 6th, so hopefully we can get it done before I leave....otherwise, my husband will have to make sure the appraiser knows all our upgrades and improvements.
Step by step we are getting closer to my husband retiring... we talked at dinner of how fast the time is flying. This year is almost half over!
