A quick rundown

Christmas break was busy with several visits from friends, hosting both sides of the family for Christmas (that's a first for us! Welcome back to Michigan!), etc. The grown ups in the house are completely disenchanted with winter and wanting our warm, southern winters back, while The May Queen keeps praying for more snow ("think we'll get 3 feet tonight?"). After I remained healthy all fall despite colds all around me, I finally caught one (or it caught me, more likely. I TRIED to run...) The biggest and best news is that we have a closing date for our house here in Michigan, so at the end of this month we can finally start moving out of temporary housing and making a HOME in our new community. Of course, we still own a house in Louisiana, so that's a bummer. Still, visions of paint chips and new bedding are dancing in my head.

I've been posting pictures over on my project365 blog. I'm starting two part time jobs at my church.

Oh. And we used It's Not the Stork, at Magpie's suggestion, to start a birds and bees conversation with The May Queen. That went well (totally "eeewwww..." free).

So see, I'm still here. Plugging away. Just not posting.

Congratulations on finding a house. I had seen a comment of yours elsewhere about this - Great news!

I enjoyed scrolling through your photos. I would have loved to have seen the eclipse, but I don't enjoy getting up in the middle of the night.

You've a lot going on! Glad to hear you found a house in the North - hope the other one sells soon.

Huge congrats on the house! That is exciting. So glad you are back and it seems very busy...

Sorry you got sick. I've been avoiding it thus far, but have come close...

I'll have to check out that birds and bees conversation. :)
