Awesome jobs recently guys. It is so hard to believe some of the things that have been on here in the past few weeks.
I've got some clothing to post, but a quick catch up first.
As I mentioned on here a little while ago my fiancé and I had to put our dog down. Had five years with her after we rescued her after a LONG stay in the humane society. We decided we wanted to rescue again and this little guy popped up online. Apparently he was found wondering the streets of Loogootee, IN with no tags and extremely long hair, guessed to be a Shih Tzu poodle mix. My fiancé found him the day he was posted and although they had a ton of requests for him, we were the first ones able to give them money.
They day we first met him.
The humane society was able to have Indiana University, though a special program for abandoned pets, pick him up and have him neutered for us before we picked him up. The vets there estimated his age between 1 and 2 years olds. When we took him for grooming, the person there said based on his hair he was closer to a year old. Apparently the way dogs hair grows when they are newborns is different than when they get a bit older and she noted that his newborn hair was still present, hinting that he had never gotten his hair cut before.
Post hair cut, at the scene on the crime. He literally ate my fiancé's homework.
He's been a hilarious addition, his personality is so strong and I was happy we could give him a good home.
Then about two weeks later we gave him another new home.It was far from thrifted, but we did get an extremely good deal. The house was appraised at $10,000 above our purchase price. On top of that, our state's housing corporation was having an incentive program for first time home buyers. Assuming you met some credit requirements, you could get $15,000 down payment assistance, that assuming you stay in the house for at least 5 years and make your payment, would be completely forgiven with zero payments or interest due. They did this program a year or two ago and the money allocated in the state's budget for it ran out in a week. This time is ran out in about 3 hours.
The house was in our ideal neighborhood, 1,800 sq ft (which doesn't include the full unfinished basement and detached garage), original hardwood floors, and apparently the previous owner had a serious green thumb. We've been told by multiple sources that the two Japanese Maples on the property could be worth a couple thousand each.

I also got one other kind of new "home". My work relocated from an small historical building (attic) downtown to one of the "nicer" towers, and along the way I got bumped up from a cube to my own office. The natural sunlight is greatly welcomed. Its pretty bare so far, so if anyone has some cool office/desk swag they'd be willing to part with I'd be interested.
