Making do.

Have you seen this flittering around internet land? I have, and it's my motto as of late. Even with the holidays.

I have been off the internet little bit folks, like maybe you have with all that's going on with the holidays!  I have to apologize for the lack of posts here, but we've been in a bit of a transition. All in a week, we sold our car, bought a mini-van, had our 9th anniversary (same day as Nie) and made an offer on a house. Oh, and not to mention Christmas and traveling and and the seasonal cold going around our house. Oh boy....that's enough to want to end the year and start and new one! We are broke and exhausted...but very happy to be moving again and making new changes. We are grateful!

We are still in the last stages of finding out about getting into a house, but I can't tell you how good it feels to be looking forward to that.  I don't mention lots of personal things here on the blog, but we've been waiting to move into a permanent location for over a year now, and I'm really looking forward to settling in to a place we know we'll be in for a while! Not to mention the chance to decorate and really make a house a home. The itch to nest has been getting me for so long now...and I am ready! But it also means that this may be the second christmas in a row where we are moving just around the holidays. Yuck. I will vow right now to never do that again! What was I thinking?

So, this all brings be back here, to say sorry for the lack of interesting things going on. Things will get interesting....and soon:)

Have fun making merry. We are very much in the christmas spirit. Listening to this and enjoying smells from this.

Enjoy these next few days! I am loving the moments of explaining to my kids how Santa gets down a chimney. It's magic:)
