I’m Not Dead!


Quick, name the movie!

I just wanted to let everyone know, I’m still here and have NOT abandoned this blog! I was on an extended visit to my parents and thought I’d be able to work from there, but I ran into multiple technical snags. Plus, I arrived to find a to-do list a mile long, and tasks were added while I was there (like, demo-ing and rebuilding stairs and a landing)! You know, little things like that. Notice I called it a “visit” and not a “vacation.”  And now we are in the final days before school starts (in 6 days), so it is hectic here with last minute back-to-school prep and catching up on all the mail and bills from when I was gone. AND I’ve been working on my coloring pages which I hope to put up for sale on Etsy very soon!

All that being said, I have been working on a post that should be ready for tomorrow if not sooner. Don’t know if I’ll have anything for next Tuesday, but definitely for next Friday. We’ll see… As soon as the dust settles and Em is back in school, I’ll be able to get back to my routine.
