Wow, amazing how much time has passed since I returned from Vegas. I’ve been busier than a one armed paper hanger, and well, a lot has changed.

Still working on No Place to Run.  I’ve also been working on Pillow Talk for the Four Play anthology.  Both are due December 15th.

Want to know what else happens on December 15th?  Besides the fact that I’m obviously taking a break from reality…

See, I’ve wanted to move for awhile now.  We’ve outgrown our current house and with three very rambunctious, getting older and bigger children, we are really feeling the squeeze.  We need room. More room. Lots of more room.  But well, the thought of having to move?  Enough to make me pluck out my eyeballs with a fork.  But we revisited the idea recently and typically we said well we’ll consider it next summer (because really we are chronic putteroffers ;)

But then we happened to see the PERFECT house. And it’s for sale NOW, not next summer. And well, did I mention this was the PERFECT house?  It is everything both hubby and I want as far as location, yard size, house features. I mean this couldn’t have been designed better for us. So how could we pass?

Well we didn’t.

So uhm what else happens on December 15th?  We close on our new house.  Because clearly I didn’t have enough to do with my current deadlines. I had to add the hassle of purchasing a new home and closing on it and then MOVING. For God’s sake. I’m already whimpering. The good news is I can take my time because I’m not putting my current house on the market until after we’ve moved completely out.

I can’t wait. Finally there will be room to spread out and not be on top of each other all the time.  AND I have an upstairs office far far away from everyone else. I may never come out of it….

  4. Big Congrats. And sometimes you just gotta take advantage of opportunities like that even when they are an unexpected boon.

    I’ve packed and moved alot and have found that the least stressful way is to pack only one room at a time, and when low on time I put aside at set amount of minutes with a timer….work on packing for only that time then go on to other things that need to be done. That way I always feel like I am making progress and helps to relieve some of the stress of moving.:vaccuum:
