Wheee! What a roller coaster ride!

So I've been missing. I still will be for a month or so, but it's all good and I think I can share a bit of what's been going on.

Here's a mini-rundown of the past two and a half months...

We've dealt with job loss, gained employment, gone to a gazillion birthday parties, prepped our house for sale, decluttered, painted ceilings and walls, cleaned our fingers to the bone, we've battled a nasty flu, gone to swim lessons, soccer practice, soccer games, cooked, done laundry, worked full time, done grocery shopping, made curtains, steam cleaned carpets, sold our house, shopped for houses, bought a house (just a couple of things before it's official!), slept (a tiny bit), and loads of other stuff that is escaping me at the mo' as well as trying to make sure our kiddo is a-ok while he only has one frazzled parent at home and the other is away working.

We've been busy. So busy that much of our 'outside' life has gone completely neglected.

I'll be back in the latter half of August to share the fruits of all this madness. For anyone who has emailed me, I'm sorry you've been put on hold, I'm especially sorry if I've worried anyone, but I will get back to you once our move is complete. As much as I'd like to do it all, I can't. Something had to give before I lost my mind. I've been on the verge of a panic attack for the last month but things are finally slowing down and I'm starting to catch my breath.

Once again, I'm sorry to those of you that have emailed and haven't had a reply. Please just hold on a little while longer and I will get to you as soon as I can! I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate your patience and understanding.


  1. Wow, that's a lot. I can understand the panic attacks. Loss of employment coupled with moving which is I've heard the second highest stress inducer, the first being a death in the immediate family. I hope you are all able to get settled in your new surroundings and in the new job.

    Sending good thoughts your way

  2. Wow, that sounds like a wild month! I'm glad we could squeeze in our little coffee & swap before the bulk of the craziness. :)

  3. Good luck and I can't wait to see some goodies when you are back! (And catch you for a round of IYP!)

  4. Wow knickers you have been busy. I'm happy to hear about the new home. Hope all goes well and I'll be thinking about you -parisgirl
