New home for the hermies

I apologize for my lack of updates, but my summers have never been quiet.  It was filled with art projects, horses (volunteering for therapeutic riding), a trip to Spain for World Youth Day, and... a MOVE!  Yep, that's right.  I packed up my stuff, my dog, and the three hermies and we headed to college!  Some people reading this my think I'm crazy taking my dog with me to college, but long story short, my parents couldn't take him to where they'll be moving soon and my brother has a house with a yard, so Moses can spend his last days there.  When I say last, I mean until October.  Moses is a very old dog who just seems to get more health problems everyday (tumors, strokes, arthritis, etc.),  all of them causing him a lot of pain and suffering.  So we've decided that my entire family will say goodbye to him one last time in October.  Needless to say, I'm not looking forward to it.  And that's an understatement.

On a happier note, the hermies have adjusted just fine to the new home.  My brother has a HUGE fish tank that he got for free sometime back.  He wants to put fish in it... I say he should get hermit crabs.  But for some reason the hermies creep him out.  He's the third guy I know that's creeped out by them!  What is up with these wimpy guys?!  Anywho, I want to get more hermit crabs sometime, but I doubt that'll happen anytime soon.  Oh, last thing.  Maui is bigger than Tiger.  No, seriously!
