We’re moving to Boston.
We’ve known for a few months that my husband’s job (he is a contracted employee with the Department of Defense) would be eliminated in March of 2013. That has caused us to seek new employment, of course. And we found it… in Boston! Perhaps that’s one reason I stalled on the blog? I don’t function very well under a feeling of unrest.
Can I say how much it pains me to be packing up my house and getting it ready to sell? Can we remember that I just built a big, awesome bed for the girls? Custom designed and hand-built for that specific room? Can we remember that every single room in this house has ANGIE written all over it? We can say that. (I don’t actually write my name on the walls. But if ever there was a house that “spoke” about it’s owner, it would be mine. That’s what my buddies say. My buddies are always right. I’m going to miss them.)
I’ve cried it out. But I definitely haven’t written it out. I haven’t been blogging for a very long time. I’m so sorry. I’ve been actually DOING things, instead of writing about how I am going to procrastinate the doing of things. It’s weird. :-) I have so much to catch you up on. I’ve built boxes, painted walls, installed ceilings, painted bricks, etc, etc. We’ll get there.
I’m making no promises of consistent blogging right now. But I wanted to say “Hi! I’m alive!”
FYI: we can all look forward to us buying a small, old home in the Boston Area. That means lots of projects. That means starting over on a clean (dirty and old, probably) slate. Yay! (I’m trying to be excited!)
Tell me I’ll love Boston? Tell me I’ll make another home speak my language again? Tell me I’ll survive the process of cleaning up, staging, and selling my house? Tell me to stop eating Halloween Candy.
Hi! Are you still there?
