Bad News...or maybe good?

The husband and I were sitting in the livingroom, enjoying our nice relaxed Sunday afternoon playing "Guitar Hero: Metallica", when our landlord knocks on our door.

"Bad news guys, we are selling our home and going to move in here!"...... *insert long pause here* ......

That's right, we are getting evicted. They will be putting their house up for sale at the end of May, in case you need me to do the math, that is a month away! They are offering us the home they are selling for a good price, and the home is is just in a bad location. Definately not a location I would ever choose to live.

The plan of attack....get approved for a home loan, start looking for a new place to live, work as many hours as we can, pray and hope everything will turn out for the best.....

Till then I will look out my window everyday so I can remember this view forever, because I will miss this view!

Another Bull@$#^ Post

I have been trying each day to think of something to write about. Obviously with no luck. I haven't gone out on an adventure, haven't crafted much, and pretty much been a boring lump of a human being. This will pass, I hope.
I have enjoyed some nice sunny days sitting at work. I am very hopeful for a hot summer. This years project...Cold Boxes...

In this picture they are using the Cold Boxes to start or harden their plants. I will use the Cold Box as a greenhouse. My place gets too much wind and rain...and well the weather is just too unpredictable for plants to grow. (and I am too poor to invest in a greenhouse) I tried to grow plants last year only to have their growth stunted by a cold spell. Not this year!!!

Just Breathe....

Right now I am in the middle of the a huge tornado called "Tax Season". I have been working lots of overtime, trying to stay out of the way of cranky accountants, and making sure there is plenty of coffee in the office, all while trying to maintain my sanity and keep a smile on my face. On the upside...I am getting lots of overtime, which is a blessing considering there are lots of people without jobs these days. On the downside...I am so exhausted by the end of the day, that I haven't been crafting much, I have neglected this blog, the dogs haven't gone on any trips to the beach or anywhere, I am not exercising and I pass out on the couch at 9:30pm most nights.

Although I love my job, and deal with the stress 100% better than anyone in the office, long hours and cranky people wear on me.
