UNDER CONSTRUCTION!

Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

Well you would not believe this day..

So today, as I am taking Barney to the vet, right as I turn onto the busy highway, my transmission went out (I have a stick shift). So with Barney yelling in the passenger seat in his carrier, I am trying to get out of the way of the major morning commute traffic and exit to a quiet street - I knew that even though the car was going 5 mph, I could probably make it to the nearby store parking lot. Get to the lot and call for help (thanks Brad's mom and dad) and then let Barney out to calm down while I wait. He was a very good boy - he got scared by cars a couple times and went diving for the carrier but mostly he sat on my lap and comforted me (I just lost it once I got to the lot). But then when we finally got back underway he was much calmer - he didn't cry one time. Now, at the vet he was freaked out again, but I am sure he will be ok there. It was a rough morning for both of us - my car is at the dealrship now (it had to be towed and I forgot to give the driver the key so they won't have info until tomorrow) and Barney is having his hoo-ha-ectomy. If I don't visit much today it is because I am just having a really bad day. I will be sure to post an update later on the Barnacle!
