Phew, I am back!

Missed me, didn't you?! You can admit it.

What's that? You didn't know I had gone anywhere?

I didn't technically GO anywhere, I was just missing from blog world this week. Today was the day we had to be out of our big house and move into our smaller house, because today began the summer rental season. People ask me if it is weird knowing that strangers are living in my house. This is the second summer we have done this and I don't think it's that weird. Plus, we get a good chunk of change to rent the house. If ever I worry, I think of that.

So, this week I should have worn a pedometer because I was never sitting. Moving boxes, toys, furniture, toys, dishes, food, bikes, crap, toys, etc..... around and setting up my house to look like a hotel with amenities was tiring. I was taking my Advil with wine at night and falling onto my twin mattress on the floor with my eyes half open. Yes, because I was concentrating so much on making one house cozy, the one we are now living in looks like a Transfer Station. DH and I need a new bed, but haven't gotten around to getting one, so he has been sleeping on the boat (he is practically working round the clock....) and I get a spare twin mattress. I figure it is a step up from the blow up mattress. Of course, sacrificing my bedroom for my daughters' bedrooms is what a mom does. Their rooms look great! They are very happy in them and they each reflect their personalities to a tee.

Then, there is the case that we are still in school. Yup, till Monday. Good grief! Enough already! So, in amongst packing and moving there were (47) a few things that needed to be done and attended.

And I didn't have internet in my house for 3 days. I know, I can hear all of you screaming, too. It's tough without the computer, I puffy heart it more than the tv!

So, it's not that I gave up on my faithful in blog world, it's just that life got in the way. Don't worry, I won't let the unpacking get in the way of writing. I don't have a deadline to get it all unpacked!

Welcome back! I think it would bea really rough to move for the summer. Still not sure exactly when I am going to be up there but it will be after the 19th most likely.

Welcome back is right!!!

King Daddy is still in school as well, why end on a Monday? Who knows...

I hope you soon get settled!

I hate that school goes so late into June. Especially since they start in AUGUST. Seems like summer vacation is shorter and shorter all the time. Yet they get a gazillion days off during the school year. Who plans these things? I want to register a complaint!
