Has it really been over two months since I posted anything?
Um, can I use the excuse that my husband and I bought that house that we wanted ala short sale–and let me tell you, there’s a reason people run screaming away from houses when they find out they’re short sales–and then a few other things happened.
Cause let me just tell you, it wouldn’t be moving day without a little excitement, and ours was no different. Thank goodness we hired movers because my appendix decided that it needed to come out the same day we were scheduled to move. So I got a trip to the ER, an overnight stay in the hospital, and some good drugs. Plus I got out of moving, and those of you who know me will understand that that was a big plus. What’s a little pain and emergency surgery to avoid manual labor?!
Anyhoo, after I was freed from the hospital I wasn’t allowed to lift anything, so the boxes are still in various stages of getting unpacked and my studio is a total wreck. At least we finally finished painting the second bedroom, so we can move all the boxes that we’ve been storing in my studio and then I can get all set up. Erm, as soon as we get around to moving those boxes…
Our house has had tons of new electrical work (cha-ching!), we’ve painted almost every room (including that pesky second bedroom that required we peel off old paint, sand, patch, sand again, prime and paint the walls), and we’re getting a re-roof done right now (cha-ching! cha-ching!), which involves ripping off the original shingles from 1930 and baring the house’s rafters for all to see, then adding plywood and finally shingles. Oi.
Oh, and our dog Sadie had a tumor removed from her eyelid while my husband was in Scotland for a week and half. I know, right? Don’t worry, we’re both fine and our doctors say we’re recovering really well.
And I’m working a little part-time job.
So I’m sorry I haven’t written for a while. I promise I’ll do better.
