Study...or clean....or straighten....or study....or write a blog. AHHHH!

ADHD you are killing me.  I have 15 million things to do and on top of that i need to study...and on top of that i want to write a blog.  For real?

Here is an update of my life:

Paul (my brother)- graduated from Dental School last weekend.

Then Tiberius got sick and we spent the weekend at the Emergency Vet
Friday he started drooling a lot and threw up.  He was febrile to 104.  Our regular vet took x-rays and said it  looked "strange" and sent us to the Emergency Vet.  Where they initially thought he had pancreatitis....but then got an ultrasound (and a bad shave job) and it appears my poor, intact bloodhound, has an abscess of his prostate.  And was promptly placed in the ICU for 24 hours, given fluids and antibiotics.

The cure?  Neutering.  I am NOT excited about that one.  I don't think he is either!!!!

Then we went back to the Emergency Vet again yesterday.  For this little one.
This time our German Shepherd Leia caught a bird and was using it as a chew toy.  Poor bird had a broken wing.  Back to the Emergency Vet.....we are becoming regulars there!
She (or he) is fine by the way.  The Emergency Vet clinic took her and is mending her broken wing.  And through this ordeal, Taylor decided she wanted to be a Vet....and asked if her grades in 10th grade counted if her 11th and 12th grade scores were better.  I was also told last night by Liz that Missouri has a great vet

And last but not least, the house is officially on the market!!

That's it for now- thanks for gotta go do something......

No, not on the market yet....but here is a preview!!!

This is my house.  Located in a cute neighborhood on James Island (off of Harborview Road).  It is close to downtown, the beach, and is in a good school district (Stiles Point Elementary is a great school!).
Unfortunately, it is time to move on.  There have been some great memories in the house (and some not so great) but I am ready to start a new chapter in my life- so out with the old and in with the new.

House purchased in 2008.  Since then, LOTS of upgrades, remodeling, landscaping, and fresh paint!

<-PS- i put this mulch and stone down all by myself!!!

Backyard with pool (chlorinated), hot tub, banana trees, peach tree, and a pergola with lanterns and strand lights (perfect for an evening party).  Also there is a side fenced in yard perfect for pets!

<-- there is a nice porch off the master bedroom on the 2nd floor.  We have a table and chairs up there, and often have breakfast there.  Taylor also likes to sit out there and read/write

There is also a screened in porch perfect for dinners on cool summer nights.

Peach tree blooming (yes, we eat the peaches if the squirrels don't get them 1st)

Downstairs there is a newly remodeled kitchen (25k in upgrades) in the Fall of 2011.  New appliances.  Travertine stone backsplash and granite counter tops and eat in bar area.

 My favorite light in the whole entire world!!!

This is the eat-in area, connecting a small room to the kitchen.  There use to be a wall, so both rooms were really small.  When we remodeled, we knocked down the wall and opened up the kitchen, put the eat-in bar up, and really opened up the space.  It is perfect for hosting!
Also, check out my oyster shell mirror (that i made!!!)

Downstairs there is also a dinning room, living room, family room, full bath, and laundry room.

Upstairs- 3 bedrooms and 2 full bath

Newly remodeled kitchen with 25k of upgrades!  Dinning room, family room, living room and laundry room on the 1st floor.
