Aren't my sweetie and my dog so cute! Geoff actually asks Gracie for kisses (something I choose not to receive from my dog!) I can't believe how big she is now. She weighed 32 pounds when she went to the vet last Friday. She also got her new summer hair cut a few weeks ago and is looking pretty sharp. Other than her occasional "teenage" rebellions, she's doing well for a pup.

I took these first pictures a few days ago to show the progress on the house, but I had to take new pictures today because everything is moving pretty quickly now. Yay! We had to move out of our bedroom Tuesday night, a big chore, and they have since torn out the old closet and built the frame for the new one. Just a little difference in size, wouldn't you say? Hee hee! I'm really excited for my new walk-in closet. Of course in moving all our stuff and "storing" some of it in our den we've realized we can probably get rid of a lot of it. If we haven't used it in the past 5 years we've been in the house do we really need to keep it? So we'll have to have a huge garage sale at the end of our remodel. I've been thinking we'd invite the neighbors, too and have a community garage sale. Hmmm. I'm not sure how well that will work in 110 degree July heat! Yes, hopefully we'll have the remodel done in a month. We're crossing our fingers. We are still waiting for the gas company to come move the meter (it's been atleast 3 weeks now.) They're also charging us $600 to move it, another of those costs that tend to crop up during a remodel. Oh well, I'm pleased with everything overall and have been very satisified with our builder and the contractors.
This is our bedroom before. Notice the size of the closet. I had some trouble getting a good angle of what they've done so far with the new closet, but you can see where the old closet was and how much bigger the new one will be.
