Travel, Taxes and Tears (of the canine cruciate ligament)


Hello all!
I hope everyone is doing wonderful. I have not blogged in a while due to travel, taxes (SHUDDER) and my dog Forrest being ill and getting a knee replacement yesterday. Please send him good thoughts. We go to pick him and his bionic leg up this evening. His vet says the surgery went great and Forrest is doing well. This sort of thing is still very stressfull, as Forrest is 11 and that is quite elderly by Dalmation standards.
Things have been crazy.
We went to Washington D.C. for the Cherry Blossom Festival--however the climate was less than festive. It was FREEZING cold. I would have loved to meet my girl Jennipah,(at Jennipah On Tour) but my trip was sort of last minute and very short. I have tons of pictures, but have not been able to download them all. We were able to peruse the National Gallery of Art, but the lines to all the other museums were literally over a block long.
I have been gone on a couple of other impromptu trips due to some neat opportunities in the past couple of weeks, but things seem to be calming down now, and for that I am thankful.
The gorgeous and brilliant K at THIS COOL BLOG asked me to do some posts about mascara, and I am sorry I am so remiss, but I will do that tonight or tomorrow. Mascara and perfume are my crack, so I am ALWAYS happy to post about mascara. K also needs some ideas on some media geared towards children in the 80's for a class she is teaching...so if you are a child of the 80's head on over there and take a walk down memory lane to help her out.
Lovely day to all.

Did you take that picture? It's gorgeous! DH and I were able to go walk around the cherry blossoms last Thursday, right before the cold front hit. I am so ready for it to really be Spring!

I've been meaning to post a picture of the cherry blossoms we saw but have been so busy and haven't had a chance to blog about it yet.

Looking forward to the mascara posts! :-)

You have been heavy on my mind all this week. The pic is really pretty. Sorry about the crappy weather. Get this, we had snowflakes here last week (Im in Ft. Worth, Texas)!! Give Forrest lots of love from his Auntie S. If Heather Mills can dance w/ her bionic leg Forrest can too:)

P, my thoughts are with Forrest!!! I'm so sorry to hear he's not doing well. On a happier note, I'm LOVING that you were able to score some Cherry Blossom perf. I mean, no one tells US you can't procure a beauty product. Just saying. Happy Thursday to you!
