I must apologize for being MIA for so long and I’m hoping ya’ll will understand. Yes, I’m officially a Southerner now, all moved in but not quite settled. I still don’t have internet access at home, hence this quick update. So, did you miss me? Well, did you, did you??!!
Oh alright, I know you all have busy lives too. Truth be told, I also only missed being online for a couple of days and then was too drained to feel any sort of significant emotion. If you’ve moved before, you know exactly what I mean. Every waking moment of your life gets devoted to packing, then unpacking, and you know that the only real motivation that gets you going is the thought of once again achieving some semblance of normalcy in your daily life. This is one time in your life when the mundane, the predictable, becomes a delicious thought worth fantasizing over. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I actually want to be bored. Ah, sweet ecstasy…routine, routine, where art though?
So my life these days are filled with stocking our pantry, installing temporary paper blinds (Who would’ve thought deciding on curtain rod styles was so challenging!), doing laundry (and I don’t understand why this seems never ending these days), and the most time-consuming of all, watering the lawn. I never knew sod was this demanding and I am seriously dreading our water bill next month. I absolutely hate this task, but then again I was never a yard-work type of person.
Well, since my physical exhaustion has seemed to have sucked out all my creative juices and has rendered me incapable of writing anything with real depth and substance at this time, let me leave you with a few photos of our new abode. It still looks quite sparse at this point but we’ll probably take our time decorating. Homes are never-ending projects anyway. Thanks for dropping by to make sure I’m still alive and have not completely lost my mind…(or have I already accomplished that?). I will do my best to return here as soon as my fully functional brain decides to check in.
|the bane of my existence these days....|
