Dudes. I’ve been MIA again.
But! For good reason. Mostly.
Hubs and I bought a house!!
Our lease is up end of February, so back in November we started looking. Around Thanksgiving and the wretchedness of losing my nana, we met with our realtor, who showed us 7 houses on a rainy Tuesday night. The one we bought was the third we looked at. We closed two weeks ago and moved in a week ago while we work on cleaning the old place out (mostly cleaned out – have a load to go to Goodwill and a load to come to the new place – then we need to schedule cleaning ladies and carpet cleaning).
I’m mildly devastated that we moved out of Annapolis, but we’re only up the bay, and about 25 minutes away from “the city” (either city – Annapolis or Baltimore – which is quite convenient). The neighborhood is nice, we have some nice neighbors (from first impressions) and we feed into a great school district. Not to mention, daycare and our new, soon-to-be-gym is across the street from daycare both of which are about 2 miles from home. If that.
So it’s been a wild ride through most of December and early January, not to mention general insanity at work, both leaving me a bit crazed, stressed and feeling out of sorts. Leaving little to no time for running, blogging or any fun things because I’ve been too exhausted. Not that I need to explain or “justify” an absence… “i write for myself” as I constantly say – which i do, but as a marketer, I do acknowledge and consider my audience – even if many hobby bloggers do not (or are just starting to).
But, I’ve got a plan. I have not and will not disappear forever, I love this space too much. I have an editorial calendar, a training plan to share and some other life goals to get my butt in gear. Not to mention, you all get to see our “dream home” come together! I’m no Young House Love here, but I am ready to get friendly with my inner crafty-pinteresty-DIY-trying self.
Happy Sunday friends! Stay tuned – more to come soon!
