Mikaila made it safely to Florida. She's a very mellow, go-with-the-flow kinda dog, and she didn't even seem to mind the traveling that much. Unfortunately, the usually immaculately sunny weather gave way to thunderstorms all weekend so she spent the better part of two days terrified. I feel bad that she has to live in an apartment now when she used to have free run of a whole house + 5 acres (and then some since she often visited the neighbors…), but she's getting used to being on a leash and going for walks. I hope she doesn't miss the house or my mom too much. Gatsby is adjusting well to the new addition to the household. I think they may have bonded over their shared phobia of thunder.
Ben and I recently started watching The Office and we love it. Netflix has all of the episodes available to play on your computer and since we invested in this nifty little cord that connects the computer to the tv, we can watch them just like they were on dvd (if you like to watch tv online, the cord is really a great deal – I think it was $13 on amazon and the picture is very clear). We're in the middle of the second season now and hooked.
I am still reading A Long Way Down. I'm hoping to finish it soon.
