Back in the Saddle Again

Enough, as they say, is enough and I think it's high-time that I stopped worrying so much about the boxes, bags, and big mess that is surrounding me here at the new humble abode and got back into blogging a bit. I believe that I am caught up enough that I can take a little time away from the total disarray and do something other than haul boxes in and out of houses.

That's not to say that I am completely done with the old house yet but there is light at the end of the tunnel and I don't think it's a train coming at me. I figure one more day of lugging stuff out of there to the local Goodwill, another day or so to clean and make sure that everything is in good condition, and then I can leave the key on the counter and call it done. I will be more than happy to close the door and leave that part of my life behind me in more ways than one.

In the meantime, it will be nice to get back to blogging and visiting all of the friends that I have missed over the past couple of weeks. With close to 800 unread posts in my Google Reader, I won't get to all of them but I do hope to at least stop by everyone's blog and say 'hi'. The only major distractions I might have now are the totally fantastic HOT SHOWERS that we have here at the new place which have been more than worth the pain of moving in the dead of winter in New England. It's sort of like staying at luxury hotel rooms every day - minus the cute little soaps & shampoos & conditioners that they give you! Well, that and we don't have a big ole jacuzzi but we do have hot water - something I will never ever take for granted again!

    Well they do say that moving is the number 3[?] most stressful experience a bod can undergo. I still have boxes that I've failed to unpack in the attic. Maybe I should take a leaf out of your book and nip along to the Goodwill. So glad that you've been rewarded with really hot showers.

    So glad to hear you are almost done and enjoying the new place. Hot showers are the best and an absolute necessity to get me through New England winters. Enjoy! It is good to be reading you again.

  3. I'm glad the move is becoming more manageable. You will like having hot water and not schlepping up and down that blasted hill in the winter.

    Enjoy and welcome back to the world of blogging. Big hug. :)

  7. Welcome back to the fray or from the fray or not considering the fray for a bit.

  8. Whew~ Almost at home base, with hot water to boot!
    Our place looks about the same as when we moved a year and a half ago - and that's not good!
    I heard yesterday that you need to eat an elephant one bite at a time and that's what I'm going to focus on!

  9. Almost done is a good thing...a hot shower is a GREAT thing!!!

  10. yopu know what they say, its not going anywhere...

  11. sniff sniff I miss you sniff

  12. Good to hear that you are getting things under control there in the moving department. It does take a good while after to get everything fully situated -a job I don't envy you for, that's for certain.

  13. Yay! I really missed you! And I'm very glad you gave yourself the gift of hot showers! It's more than OK to be nice to yourself!

    I'm really glad to hear that you are nearly all moved in. I've missed seeing your comments. Granted, I haven't been blogging much either lately...but still, perhaps by the time you've caught up...I'll find time to start blogging again.

    I like what Gracie said about eating an elephant one bite at a time. *LOL*

    I hope you at least get the old house finished up soon and you can rest a bit!

    Take care and visit when you have time. :)

  18. give away
    throw away
    put away

    little bit at a time

  19. Hurrah for hot showers!


Thanks for visiting!
