I Still Exist!

Oh my goodness, I don't even want to look at the last time I posted.
*shakes head in shame*

Hello! Hi! Howdy and good day!
I know it has been a long time since you have heard from me.  In case you might have forgotten: my family moved.  Moving from one home to another is a task of its own.  But when it is across an entire state... well, let's just say life as gotten hectic.

I love being back in the place I was born and raised.  It is gorgeous here, and I am inspired every single day.  So why the lack of awesome blog posts and crazy editing you ask?

Long story short: We have yet to move into our new home.  A month ago we packed up and left Oregon.  And since then, my family of four have been living in a mini Winnebago in my dad's back yard.  We mostly use it just has a bedroom and are able to use the house for everything else.  I have even been able to set up my computer in my dad's living room in an attempt to get work done.  Regardless, not a whole ton of work has been achieved.  There is something about not being in "your place" that makes settling down and getting any task done.

Have I mentioned how rock hard my bed is?

We move into our apartment in less than two weeks.  And boy am I excited!  It is a three bedroom which means *drum roll please* I GET MY OFFICE! AH!  After nearly four years of being a dining room writer mama, I not only get a dining room back, but I get my very own office as well.  With a door.  That I can hide behind.  And lock.

But that is a little under two weeks away.

Tomorrow I will post an update (in a way) about LJ and what is going on with it.  So make sure you check back then!  And now, I am off to exercise and get this lazy bum moving!

A view from where I am. Gorgeous, right?

Happy Writing!

Sounds hectic indeed! But it also sounds like your new apartment will be worth the wait :)

That view is amazing!

Oh man, I understand how not living in your own place for over a month can be! When I was younger, my family left the east coast and moved across the country to Arizona. It was a very short notice type of deal. My dad moved there first to start work and my mom, sister, pets, and I followed a week later. Since we had never been to AZ before and definitely didn't have time to plan everything out, we lived in a HOTEL for THREE months! It was a bit of a nightmare. Luckily we had two conjoining rooms so we weren't all on top of each other. Lots of takeout :) It's nice of your dad to let y'all live in his back yard! The view looks gorgeous. I bet you're excited about having your own office! I couldn't imagine having to work in the dining room. I would have papers and everything all over the place. There would be no eating there!

Glad to see a post from you!

Your new (old) home looks very beautiful indeed. I look forward to seeing more photos from the region in future. And hearing about LJ progress, of course. :)
