4 Reasons Why I'll be Anti-Social for the next 2 1/2 Months

Dear Friends,

My life is getting crazier by the moment. I just wanted to let you know that I love you all but because of the following four reasons, you may not see or hear a lot from me in the next 2-3 months. Don't hate me cause I'm busy.

1. We Bought a House!!!

Before you get too excited, realize that Chris comes from a construction background and he was set on looking for a fixer upper. So the house bought is the epitome of a fixer upper and not cute AT ALL. But it will be because we are fixing it up. To make a long story short the house is a basement...just a basement and over the next several months we'll be remodeling and eventually putting on a top level.

 Right now we're in the process of moving and we're starting renovations on the basement so things have been kind of crazy. It's a super exciting new adventure, but it's come at a somewhat hectic time.

2. I Have an Awesome Job!

After I got over wanting to be an actress and a movie star, I found my love of writing. Sure right now I'm just writing for a wedding blog but it's actually something I really enjoy. However, it is pretty time consuming. Lots of phone calls and writing and it doesn't leave me a wealth of free time.

3. I'm This Close to my Degree!
I only have two classes this semester but I still have homework to do for both of them. Plus the actual going to class part. So if I'm not working on packing or moving, or writing for work then chances are I'm in class or doing homework. And if I'm not doing that, it's because...

4. I LOVE Being a Mom!
Evie is my pride and joy. She's beautiful and sweet and cuddly and every "free" moment I have is spent with her. Lately more than just free time has been spent holding her. During the day she's been fussy and won't sleep anywhere but in my arms. Not that I mind but it can make it difficult to straighten up, or do anything on the computer or more crucial things like eating or going to the bathroom.

My mom recently left to go back to Georgia and I didn't realize how much work it is to take care of my sweet baby until I've had to do it on my own.
It's definitely been a humbling experience. I'm one of those people that gets antsy if I'm not being productive. It's hard for me to sit still. It's been difficult for me to learn it's ok for me to sit on the couch and rock my sleeping baby. I shouldn't feel guilty. Right now she is the most important thing in my life and nothing else matters more than her.

So please forgive me if I seem to have disappeared from off the face of the planet, I'll be a little busy for a while...

  1. You bought a house! That is so great! I can't wait to see what both of your creative minds do with the building and the property.
