Settling In...

Don't be afraid to start over, it's a new chance to rebuild what you want.
Everything happens for a reason...

The Blues Festival is over.  It was a good time and though the days started out cold it always seemed to warm up during the day for the festival.  Made us happy and we were able to enjoy it much better.  We saw some new artists who were really very good and a few we already knew, and they did not disappoint.  Overall it was good and knowing it will be our last one as Chicagoans made it bittersweet.

Now it's back to taking care of business and two things on our mind.  Get treatment for Brutus and list our apartment for sale.  So far, Brutus has already been to the vet three times.  Yesterday he was there to have his blood taken so that when he goes back o Thursday they will have a better idea as to what is going on and how to treat him.  That is what we hope.  

Brutus is being so very good, but he really does not like being in a taxi.  Both Arvid and I are with him so that seems to take some of his stress away.  Today as he was having blood drawn, we heard this scream.  Both Arvid and I looked at each other and simultaneously said, "awww it's Brutus"  Yes, Brutus is a screamer, but just like a kid as soon as the needle prick is over so are his screams.

Next thing on our agenda is selling our apartment.  Traumatic because we have to keep it spotless and we have to just put most of Brutus' things away.  He does not like this so we are hoping it sells fast, but that we can stay until the end of summer.

It's listed and now have to be prepared to show it at any given moment.  Not ideal, but it is doable.  
What better way to end the afternoon by having a nice and relaxing time at the hot tub.  Brutus also had a moment with his dada.  He just jumped up on Arvid's lap and stayed there for quite a long time.  Both of them had a good time.
Wishing you a good day and remember, life is too short to wait..

And they lived happily ever after...
