Yellow, on the Side
I'm sure I've mentioned before how envious I am of people who can wear yellow and wear it well. It just doesn't work with my coloring, and I've accepted that. But I'm still jumping on board with this round of Everybody, Everywhere and sporting the only yellow thing I own - my bag!
It's still pretty warm here, but we had a pretty nasty rain storm yesterday that took away a lot of the humidity. It's at about 50% now, which is a serious improvement over yesterday. Like, I'm not drenched just by walking outside. Said storm yesterday resulted in all kinds of power outages and trees/branches all over the streets in the Chicagoland area. It's weird how many of our storms this summer have been severe. The storm hit right as I was on the train on my way to work, so we stopped and sat on the tracks for about an hour. Ugh. A lot of the traffic lights were still out when I left work yesterday afternoon, which caused problems for the bus that I take to the train station. So all in all, I spent about 5 hours commuting to and from my office, which is 25 miles away. It totally sucked. Like, to the point that I was nearly in tears while sitting in traffic on the bus last night. The day would've been a total loss if it hadn't been for this new addition to our household last night:
This is Jude's new foster sister, Kameko! 3 years ago we adopted Jude from a wonderful 100% volunteer rescue group, New Leash on Life. I keep up with them on their Facebook page, and am always perusing their available dogs. I've wanted a second dog for a little while, and since we've moved, we actually have the space for 2 dogs. I spotted Kameko on their website and read her story and thought she and Jude would be a pretty good match. She's 6 years old and, like Jude, a rottweiler mix. She had a good home, but the guy who adopted her had to move overseas and couldn't take her with. She's been in day care for 3 weeks since he left, and Fella and I felt bad that she didn't have a home to stay in. We took Jude to meet her on Saturday, and they got along pretty well, so we offered to provide a foster home for her. We're seeing how things work out, but it's possible that we'll adopt her. I'd love to, but it depends on how Jude adjusts to all of this. They seem to like each other (here they are together), but it's a big change for Jude. Does anyone with multiple pets have any tips on integrating a new pet to the house?
