Just got back from the Fashion Show Mall after retrieving my iMac from the Genius Bar.  My hard drive decided to take a dump on me after only six months and I lost everything in the process.  I am most upset about the digital pictures that were on there going back to 2003 and the over 100 GB of music I had managed to rip.  I've since gotten rid of A LOT of those CD's in anticipation of the move.  Those pictures are gone forever, as I didn't have any backup to speak of.  Some of my favorite pictures of Gabrielle were on there, waiting to be printed to adorn the new house.  Beyond Frustrating.

Juice has always had ear problems, this past month or so it's been a lot worse.  We decided to take him to the vet today to find out what was going on.  Ms. Vet examined his ear and found tumors.  After a quick biopsy, they were determined to be cancerous.  I feel so bad for the little guy.  Gabby's heartbroken, her best friend is dying.  He's not in any pain that we can tell at the moment, but the cancer is inoperable.  They would have to remove his ear, his ear canal, and possibly part of his skull ... and that wouldn't guarantee that it would all be gone.  He's not in any pain that we can tell, and seems to be in his usual sunshine spirits.  The only thing we can do is enjoy what time we have left with him.

My parent's dog, Shadow, passed away today.  He was a grumpy old man from the time he was a puppy, an OCD little thing, and a companion to Rose.  He lived a good, long life.  He'll be terribly missed.

Received the Good Faith Estimate from the bank today in reference to the construction loan.  They are asking for a ton and a half of paperwork that is going to take a bit to gather.  Most importantly, they are wanting the builder contact information.  General Contractor #1 isn't returning my calls anymore.  Oi Vey.

I've been talking to my mother about the possibility of putting my Grandmother's land in Missouri into my name so we can build a house out there.  She's dragging her feet for some reason, saying she needs to be out there to do it.  Think I'm going to have to do the majority of the leg work myself to prove to her that she doesn't.  Fun times ahead!!

Greg and I had an actual date tonight, just us ... no kids ... dinner and a movie.  I had such a good time. 

the movie we went to see - Dragon Wars - was the dumbest movie I have ever seen in my life.  and that is saying a lot. the fact that there were sparsely populated dragons in this movie couldn't even save it in my opinion.  every cliché that you can possibly think of resided in this move.  all the way from the opening scene with the native American Indian ranting and raving - to the ending where the female dies but proclaims "I'll always love you" to the guy she's known all of a day.  terrible.  don't waste money to go see this movie ... I almost walked out on it too many times to mention.

other than that ... fantastic date night!  need to do those more often.
