Don't You Forget About Me

HELLO, MY PRETTIES!!

Oh, how I've missed you so!

Gosh, it's been so long since I last blogged or even read anyone's blogs. I'm so sorry. But, sincerely, I have missed you all. So much has been going on this past couple of weeks. Let me tell you!

The reason I hadn't been blogging was because we are in the middle of moving. For those of you who follow me on Twitter, yes we are still moving!

I had been on a blogging roll and was starting to feel so connected to you all when my living situation changed and I no longer had time to blog at all. I spent all my days boxing up dishes and toys and taking furniture to our storage unit.

We made the decision to leave our two story, two bedroom, two bathroom townhouse to move into my sweet-tart's grandmother's house. We finally decided that we were ready to stop renting and buy a house. But, saving money for a down payment is hard when all of your money goes to paying where you live at now. So, since GG (we call her GG because she is our daughters' Great Grandmother) lives alone, she allowed us to move in with her. We decided that we would help her with bills and groceries and housework while we lived there. While we still have to pay, we will be paying a lot less and therefore, will be able to put money away in our piggy bank for a house down payment. And in turn, we have been helping GG fix up her home and yard--we help her do the work that was always hard for her to do on her own.

We hope that in the end, it will be a win-win situation.

So, now that I am not living at my old "home" anymore, I have been busier here. GG has a big yard that the girls love to play in, cats to chase, a pool to swim in...they are having a blast. I have helped her reorganize her kitchen and closets, trim the trees, paint some walls and it's actually been fun. This is all things we were never been able to do renting a townhouse which is all the reason more why we want our own house now.

I haven't had time to blog or read your posts but once I get fully settled in, I hope to resume where I left off. We still have a ton of things at our old place. My sweet-tart works a lot so by the time he gets out of work, he doesn't feel like packing and moving more stuff. But, he is going on a one week vacation starting Sunday so we plan on being 100% out of the townhouse during that week. We have until August 1st to be out so we've been taking our time.

Can you believe that I don't even have my makeup over here yet (or my camera)? My makeup is still at the old place! I miss it so so very much. Maybe when I can haul it all over here, I might do a collection post or something since it will all be out as I try to find space for it in our new room. That is going to be a challenge!

Well, my beauties, that is all I have to say for now. I just wanted to let you all know that I am alive and well and that I honestly miss you all very much. I have never felt so disconnected before. My blog, Twitter, Facebook, has never been more neglected before. But I will come back as soon as I can. I love blogging and I always want it to be a part of my life.

I just ask for some more time to get comfortably and fully settled in. I have been spending a lot of time with my girls and GG and that is a good thing. I don't want to enclose myself in my bedroom and spend a ton of time taking pictures, and swatching, and blogging because GG probably wouldn't understand. I don't think she even knows what a blog is! Maybe one day I will show her what I have been up too. I am very proud of my blog and all the wonderful comments you Pretties have left me. Maybe she will like it too!

Just please, don't forget about me.

I love you...I miss you...
