Moving on from the negativity, this week we reached our 5 year milestone of living at Golden Pines. To some, I know that it's not that long, but it's a milestone nonetheless. I remember very well the day we left our last house in the subdivision. I remember the feelings I had when I stood in it's empty entryway for the last time looking at the freshly painted bare walls, new carpet and polished floors. Carl and I felt humbled as we thought about our life there and the dogs that had found their way to us during the 10 years we lived in the house.
