Thank you for the welcoming posts.
I wouldn't say I was energetic... just very tired. lol.
Actually, it's not to bad. Three of the kids are in school most of the day and the dogs are very lazy.
They have a fenced acre to play and run around on if they choose, so I don't take them out on walks often. Right now all eight are big black puddles of snoring fur surrounding my computer chair. lol.
As for Arizona... it's okay. I'm just East of Phoenix. Winter's are nice here, but summers totally bite. We are planning a move to Northern Arizona in the next year or so. Pine trees, a little snow in the winter, but most imortantly, much cooler summers... I will be in heaven.
