It's Been A While

New year should bring new posts for this blog, but lately I have just been weighed down with work to do anything blog worthy.  I'm hoping that is going to change soon once I get a good handle on these new projects.

I always like to have something to look forward to (something to plan, excel spreadsheets to maintain) so we have been tossing around some ideas of a get away in May (after Chris graduates...knock on wood) and plotting out when the house hunt will begin.  It doesn't seem like it's been that long since I wrote this post, but I am amazed at how far we've come and am crossing my fingers that we'll be good to go come July.

In the meantime I did knock out Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and will be starting on the 3rd book soon.

I need to make it to a secondhand book store to pick up the last 2 books

In unrelated news, mom is currently on the hunt for a new dining room chandelier and I have fallen in love with some of the beauties out there.  Now to find an extra couple grand laying around...oh and a dining room to put it in :)

One of the cool chandeliers we spotted 

Do you have any trips, projects or plans coming up?  Anyone else having a hard time getting back into the swing of things post holidays?


  1. Glad you're back! I was thinking the other day it had been a while since you posted, and I'm glad things are okay. :) Hope it gets easier!
    Also, that chandelier is AWESOME.

  2. LOVE that chandelier. We're also planning on planning a getaway, haha. I just need to be planning/looking forward to something and if we don't sit down and plan it, it never happens/we never save money for it.

  3. I know what you mean about being bogged down with work. I miss your posts!

  4. I definitely know what you mean, sometimes it's hard to get back in the swing of things after the holidays. But yay for reading and a possibly trip later this spring!

  5. definitely hard to get back in the swing of things! wow that chandelier is so cool.

    the first 3 harry potter books were my favorites of the series.
