This and That

You may have noticed that these days  months year, posting on my blog has been a little thin. And while I enjoy sharing things with my friends out there in blog land, I've had other priorities. First Ward was sick, then we began the odyssey of buying and selling houses and moving. We have been in our new house for a couple of months now, so is my time freeing up? Well, sort of.

There is definitely less stress than there has been for a while, but things are busy all the same. During the throws of house excitement, I cancelled several appointments. Now I'm rescheduling them and catching up on all of my yearly/semi-yearly visits such as to the dentist.

There's also a lot of work to be done in the new house. While we have most of our daily use things unpacked, there are still several things waiting to be uncovered from their boxes. However, we're still trying to figure out how our things fit in this new space as well as painting to be done before we put much more in place. In addition, there's the tree trimming, yard work, electrical problems, leaky pipes, etc. to contend with. All of those things that have to be dealt with when you own a house.  Add in a declining cat and sick relatives and my time seems to be pretty filled.

However, I could manage it a little better. For example, when I sat down last night to check my email and start a blog post, I got a bit distracted. I came upon a quiz to see how many of 100 popular TV shows from past and present that you could identify. I'm not sure if I should be proud or not, but I got 95/100 correct. :)

Also, Ward and I are taking a little time to explore our new area and just spend some unstructured time together--meaning not doing a chore. This part has been fun and we're making it a priority to keep it up.

So while I'm still busy (isn't everyone?), I really hope to pay more attention to my blog now. If nothing else, I need to update the Who-am-I type things, because they've changed since I started this blog several years ago. But we'll see. Until next time, thanks for checking in.
