This has been the longest hiatus I've ever taken from blogging.
It has been wonderful. I knew that the moment I started thinking "This would make a great post!" that it would be time to come back.
Well, here I am. And I can't really remember what I thought was such a great thing to share with you all.
It could be that our lives are being saturated with change at the moment.
First of all, we're moving after living in the same place for almost five years (you can read about why here). That in and of itself has been nerve wracking, disappointing and exciting all at once. If you've ever moved five people's worth of stuff, three of those people being kids who are scared and nervous and don't understand how their beds could possibly fit through the front door then you know what I mean. We had a place but backed out because the basement walls were squishy with moisture and Brad was not comfortable with all the exposed wires and water down there. Which was sort of a side note because the elderly landlord FORGOT he gave the place to us and had another family moved in before we could even tell him we didn't want the place anymore. So yeah, that kind of worked out.
Second, my work situation is being altered greatly. The lady I take care of is moving in with her daughter in a new house about 85 miles south of us. Not exactly good as a regular commute. I'm SO happy for her, though, this is a much better set-up and she'll never be alone at night. I recently gained a really unique opportunity working with an award winning author, which I am extremely stoked about. It all came about essentially through a rogue email and I cannot believe how blessed I am for this chance to apply work I love doing to help someone I greatly respect and get paid for it! This work won't be the end all, though, until I can show how effective I can be and then build a client base of other authors. So, I'm still doing my photography (another job I absolutely love doing), I will be working for Millie for a while longer and I will also be working for Starbucks part time as a barista.
Lest you think my musician husband is just sitting on his butt playing his guitar Andy Dwyer style, he's finished a new album, is playing The Bite of Seattle next month and is still the Technical Director at our church.
Um...we're a little bit busy.
School is out on Friday, my daughter 'graduates' kindergarten tomorrow and it still feels like early spring in Seattle, which I am NOT complaining about. (Unlike what seems to be 90% of Seattle area people I do not miss nor wish for hot weather.)
Let's see...what else? Our older boxer has cancer, our younger boxer is adorable and we find out today if we got the latest house we applied for. We just got family pictures taken with Kaylee Eylander and I can't wait to see them. I have my own computer now (no sharing with Brad and getting in trouble for messing up his OCD desk organization) and am currently getting the people's eyebrow because said husband is slaving away packing while I'm dinking away on the interwebs.
Alright, friends! There is your five second update and here is a promise: I will be posting regularly again starting now!
Did you miss me?
