Oh Little Blog How I Have Missed You!!

Looking through my windshield in Mississippi in the middle of the day during a storm.
The truck in front of me was my husband.


Wow folks!!!! I have missed you all!

When I posted last about moving back to CA, I knew my blogging was going to be off for a while but did I think that it would be a month before I got back on here?!? Heck no! Yet here I am, just over a month after my previous post and I have to admit I am scared to open Google Reader.

So much has happened that it is going to take me weeks to update you on all of it. Ok so there have been a couple BIG things that have spurred a bunch of smaller things. For starters...

WE GOT OUR CONDO....I AM A HOMEOWNER!!

That has brought on painting, painting and more painting. We have also put in hardwood floors in the living/dining area. I am going to post pictures but that is not even the really exciting part. It is a 2 bedroom condo and it is just my husband and I so with the spare bedroom we are going to have a....wait for it....wait for it...

LIBRARY!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, my husband loves me. We went to Ikea 2 weeks ago and bought 7 bookshelves! I can't even express my excitement but the thing I love about all of you is that I don't have to because you can understand how I feel. We still aren't living in the condo because all of our belongings are in the hands of the Army delivery people. The ETA is anywhere from June 20 to July 2! Luckily, I have an awesome mom with some spare room for us to occupy until it arrives. The good thing that came from that is we were able to do all the painting/fixing up of the condo while it was completely empty. The bad news is my mom lives in the boonies (yes I have brought this up before) and she doesn't have internet. So you can see why my posting has been off. I have been so busy that this is the first chance I have had to visit my favorite coffee shop with free wifi. Things are finally starting to settle into a pattern so I will hopefully be more on track for blog stuff. Slowly but surely I will be caught up....

Congratulations on getting a condo!! That's so fantastic! And I am, of course, green with envy over your having a library. SEVEN bookshelves - seriously, if I suddenly had seven new bookshelves, I'd go on a book-buying spree the likes of which this world has never seen. :p
