I'm Back :)

Okay, so being off line for a week was difficult to say the least.  I missed reading everyone's blogs and chatting with you all through email. I missed all of the wonderful daily inspiration and the good laughs.  I missed posting what I was working on, even though I didn't have time at all to work on anything last week.  You see, last week was like this.

It started with a 25 hour drive.  Next was three whirl-wind days looking at over 30 houses and spending time with my husband's family (this part was awesome).  Then it was back in the car again for a quick jaunt up the I-15 to spend some time with my family , including my brand new niece (again awesome).  And then the bummer, back in the car again for another 25 hour drive back which turned into about 27 hours as our car broke down 30 miles from home and had to be towed in. (ya, a bit scary).

But in the end We found a wonderful house in Utah that we absolutely fell in love with, our offer was accepted, and we now have somewhere to go to when we finish up here in Indiana.  Yippee Skippee!!!  So my friends, I missed you.  I am sorry for the prolonged absence but I wanted to focus my efforts on our goal to find a house, and spending time with family.  It was a wonderful week!!

I would post more about projects finished earlier , pictures of the house, and such but I have a showing of my house here in South Bend in 1 hour and need to finish unpacking.  See ya tomorrow!!!
Pin It!

  6. Dying to know where you are moving - maybe close to me? Glad to know you are back and good luck selling the house. Just know right now they will always want to drop by in 20 minutes on the day when two tornados, a hurricane and three bombs went off. Maybe that just happens at my house...

  12. Sounds like a great and successful trip. I´m glad that Germany is a bit smaller and a 25 h drive brings me through several countries ;-). Sorry to hear about the brake down and good luck for selling the house.
