AUNTIE ANNA IS HERE!!!

*** Update from my previous post... the only thing stressing me out right now is the fact that I am still WAY behind on catching up with all of your blog postings... but it will eventually happen!***

My sister left South Carolina on Saturday morning, September 5th. She was scheduled to drive across the United States for five days, but she decided that she just couldn't wait that long to see her precious niece. So, she drove for over 14 hours each day, and arrived here a full day sooner than planned. That's right... as of yesterday evening at about 6:00, Auntie Anna now lives in beautiful British Columbia!!!

Reagan had been standing by our front window for most of the afternoon waiting for Auntie Anna to get here. I think that she was running out of the front door before Anna even had her car in park! Of course, Anna was already out of the car and running to hug Reagan as well...Ryan and I both got some Auntie Anna love as well, although I only have pictures of Ryan!I can honestly say that I have never seen Reagan ignore a dog before, but she wasn't even interested in Auntie Anna's black lab puppy named Theo... all she wanted to do was hug Anna! She eventually turned her attention to the dog, but it took a while for that to happen!And yes, we did find the perfect home for Anna's puppy! Our neighbors across the street (different neighbor than from previous post) were more than happy to take Theo into their home. Theo is fitting in well with the family, especially with their 10-year old black lab named Sadie. Sadie has become Theo's role model, and she is the perfect role model for him! The two teenage boys who live in the house have already fallen in love with Theo, and I think that the Mom & Dad in the house have as well. It's perfect in that Anna can just simply walk across the street to visit whenever she wants to see her boy.

When it was time for bed last night, Reagan would only let Auntie Anna tuck her in... Mommy & Daddy have become chopped liver. At three in the morning, Reagan crept into our room and asked if she could please go get in bed with Auntie Anna. Of course, I told her to go ahead! And today has been much of the same. Trust me when I tell you that Reagan is extremely excited to have Auntie Anna here living with us. And I am too! It was so nice waking up this morning and enjoying a cup of coffee with my sister. I'm looking forward to MANY more mornings like this one!

As of today, I am 99% sure that I am the new "Night Services Manager" for the Hampton Inn in Langley. I have unofficially been told that I have the job... we are now just working out the logistics of my schedule. I should have official documentation by Monday next week, and I am holding off on my celebrations until that takes place. I am even hesitant to blog about it in fear that I may jinx it all, but I'm taking the chance!

I'll be missing in action (once again!) for the next few days. We're leaving on Friday morning to go camping for the weekend! But rest assured that sometime next week, I'll be back with countless pictures from our adventures. And hopefully I'll have "official" job news to report. And seeing as how tomorrow is the VERY FIRST DAY OF PRESCHOOL for Reagan, I'm sure that I will have a few hundred pictures or so of that event as well! Hopefully I won't cry so hard that I make a fool of myself. Thank goodness I will have my sister here to keep me in control!

Did I mention that I am so excited and relieved that AUNTIE ANNA IS FINALLY HERE!!!!!!!
