Llama Drama already!  Word is that Nitro, one of the llamas is not doing very well.  If he doesn't respond to the antibiotics soon, they will put him down.  Well, he is 17 years old.  If this happens, Santana, his friend will go live with some other llamas down the street.

This may leave us with three cats and nine chickens to care for.

I hope Nitro rebounds because I saved him a place on my Christmas card picture wearing a santa hat.

Moving is going well.  We are almost done and will be living at the in laws house in Eagle River by Friday.  My car is posted on craigslist.  We're eating off paper plates and sleeping on foam mattresses.  Feels like upscale camping without bugs or rain-soaked clothing.

Three weeks from Tuesday, we will set off to Redmond.  Our van will be filled with flyfishing gear (no spin fishing for me anymore!), mountain bikes, my binder of recipes, and my card making supplies.  First item on my list (of course, I have a list with little checkboxes) is to join a gym.  Then we will unpack.

For now, we are busy sorting and selling our stuff.  Ferrying items to Eagle River to store at my in laws.  And trying to decide if I should sell my car.  I love my little Honda.  It's been a good car for 12 years.  150,000 miles, oil changes and a couple of battery changes.  It made it up here twice from good ol' Greenville (G Vegas), South Carolina.  Guess, I will have to decide soon.  Sigh.
