Yes, I am still here! Even though I have been very absent on the blogosphere for quite some time! Nothing could have prepared me for how much of a fiasco moving into a new home could be and throw in Thanksgiving and Christmas, and I was a million different directions! Needless to say, I couldn't have made it through without red wine...L.O.T.S. of red wine.
I thought I would give you guys a run-down of what I have been up to since I last blogged!
We moved into our new house! Yay! We got the certificate of occupancy on November 15th and it was full steam ahead to get moved in before Thanksgiving. A brand new house doesn't mean it doesn't come with it's little quirks and problems and I think it's safe to say after almost 6 weeks of people coming in and out to fix minor things, the house is perfect!
And to make things crazier, I flew up to Memphis to run in the St. Jude Half Marathon the first weekend of December. That has to go down as one of the best races I have ever run! Such a great cause and because my team and I raised money for the hospital, we got to tour the facility the day before the race. What an amazing place!! I could seriously go on forever about this place! A very worthy cause and I urge everyone to donate whenever they can!!!
December has been a complete blur! My daughter was out of school for two weeks so I didn't get much accomplished on the work front but I thoroughly enjoyed being home with her. Christmas came and Santa brought her a beautiful new swingset! Santa had a very special elf that helped him a.k.a. Daddy and I am pretty sure we are never ordering a swingset for any present ever again! Took him a week of putting it together after work and he is definitely my hero for doing so!
I joined the club and got an iPhone for Christmas and I am in love with it! I also ponied up and bought a "fancy" camera so I can take better pictures for my blog. Which means I better get back to blogging!!
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and I look forward to being back better than ever in 2012!!
