The past few months…

So where have I been?

When I started this blog back in April, I didn’t fully realize how difficult actually doing all this house stuff was going to be.  Soon after, appointments needed attending, forms needed filling and things needed to be signed. I was fortunate that I had a great group of family, friends and co-workers to support me, especially during the final days before closing.  I *literally* couldn’t have gotten through everything without them to help me along the way.  A strong support system is invaluable.

But support or not, I was overwhelmed, and the blog just fell by the wayside.

But no more.  The house closed just over two weeks ago, and I moved in a few days later.  Things are starting to calm down, and I finally have an internet connection again, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to start writing again. 

My house might be brand-spanking-new, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t projects and DIYs to undertake. I’ve already started by painting a pair of bedside tables for the guestroom, and I’ve already changed the light fixture in the master bedroom. I have tons more ideas waiting in the wings, so there is lots to write about. Stay tuned…
