Hercules? Derpy?


Our newest addition to our household is a red ear slider turtle. My little sister has been wanting one for a while. While my dad was in the hospital after his surgery, we went to the local pet store to see if they had turtles. Sure enough, they did. So, we brought one home. Now, we are just trying to figure out if it's a boy or girl. We have decided that if it's a boy, his name is Hercules. If a girl, her name is Derpy. (Oh the mind of a 12 year old) This now makes 3 dogs, 3 hermit crabs and a turtle to our animal population. I will be posting about our hermit crabs as soon as I can. So far, we have had good luck with the turtle. We are looking to upgrade the tank and move our hermit crabs into the turtle's current tank so they will have a bigger home and we may even add a couple more crabs!

Oh wow... it's been a while.

Not that anybody reads this of course but, it really has been a while. I can't believe I let it slip by that quick. I'm a slacker. What can I say?

In the past few months, a lot of things have happened. Lucky went to live at his new home, I got a promotion at work, my dad had a heart attack and open heart surgery and Chad & I bought a trailer to fix up all within a month, and my aunt passed away a week ago.

One could say it hasn't been easy that last few months but it hasn't been terrible either. We've had some ups & downs but that's life. I just can't believe how time is flying by. Before we know it, it'll be Christmas & New Years and 2013 will be here and I'll be rushing to get everything ready for when Chad & I get married in September. Whew!

I'm not sure when I'll write again. Obviously, you never know with me. That's just how it goes. I hope you all (whoever reads this) are doing well and I'll be back soon.

Until Next Time...
