I have begun the hunt for a puppy. My friend in Florida is just too far away and I'm not sure how long I want to wait. Summer sounds so far away. I figure it can't hurt too much to save up some money and take a look around here. I really fell in love with the Shih Tzu, which surprises even me. I never thought I would want one, but then again I had never had one before. Ellie had to work hard to win me over, especially since she was so difficult to housetrain. I wasn't sure I ever get used to her funny little face, but she was so full of love and affection, and funny tricks and antics that I couldn't help but love her. My biggest question is whether I want a male or a female. Is there really a big difference in how they act? A male is less expensive so I'm thinking that may be the way to go.

A Whole New World
As expected, we woke up to a fresh new look this morning. The trees are covered in a thin layer of ice and snow. Damage is minimal but there was no school here today, although I guess Rachel's boys had to go. It has been a rather quiet and very sleepy day. I couldn't keep my eyes open this afternoon and took a much too long nap. I have my van back, complete with new fuel lines, but haven't gone out to the grocery store yet. This is not my favorite weather to run around in and I was much too tired to even think about it. I don't know if the weather has something to do with my fatigue or whether my coughing has caught up with me. Either way, I hope I am feeling more energetic tomorrow.
