Oh blog, how I have missed you

I don’t know how it happened, but a quick hiatus from writing turned into a month long sabbatical.  Not that i was trying to get away from blogging…it’s just that once I stopped I was almost intimidated to come back.  What could I say to make up for my week long absence?  And as that one week stretched into two, and then three, I began to panick.  This one had better be good, I thought.  And so finally one month into my “I’m too distracted to write” phase, I have decided to take the plunge.  Nothing fancy here, just a little snippit of life.  Enjoy. 

Life as usual is a bit crazy.  Today we are getting a new septic tank.  I know, i know…it’s not exciting, but here is a picture of my yard.  Did I mention that yesterday we put a for sale by owner sign in the front yard?  Gee, why is no-one interested?  Yikes.  Good thing this won’t last long.

I’m Back!

I know, I know… you must have missed me terribly.

We had a wonderful vacation…lots of sun and very little to worry about.  I will share pictures once I get everything organized.

Today John and I spent some time organizing The Basement.  I feel like they should name a domestic horror flick after “The Basement.”  Its’ the one place in the house that seems to get absolutely no love.  For the past 3 years, we have shoved our crap downstairs, and reveled in how much space we had.  As you can imagine, it eventually turned into a complete nightmare….dust, spider webs, and lots and lots of JUNK!  Now as we look to put our house on the market, we have to confront what we have done to ourselves, and find a way to get rid of that musty, not so inviting smell.  Why? Whhhhhhhhhhhhhy ( imagine me screaming at the top of my lungs) did we let things get so unmanageable?!
