cycle, though it is possible to forget how to ride it

Wasn't Thanksgiving two weeks ago? Three? Ooh...nearly ten...
I'm trying hard to not let time slip by like that, but I'll be damned if I can figure out how to do it. The holidays merged into snow days and dog adoptions and more freaking snow days. I was feeling so lovey and blessed for my sweet children at the end of December... that's over. And, as I recall, February is not the kind of month that makes everyone feel all shiny happy better.
No worries! I have solved my February doldrums before they will happen! Two, not ONE, but TWO puppies will arrive here on February 10th. Two fuzzy, little, snuggly, silly joyful fur balls to lighten everyone's mood and give us something to giggle about. J is going to name them and we will have the fun of training two clean slates to be the best family dogs ever. These two will be exposed to every possible scenario. Cats, kids, babies, noise (nothing like some call of duty to numb you right up), other dogs, being held and smushed, and, most fun... snow! Puppies + snow = giddyhappylove. There is NOTHING like baby animals to make your heart swell.
I feel so lucky to be able to foster dogs at our house. I have this "save the world" thing in my head and I feel this incredible NEED to do something about it. I love these dogs and I seem to have a knack for training them, so I have to save as many as I can. SO far, two. I wonder how many I can help in a year?
