Mia... and I am afraid...

It seems like I am always apologizing for being MIA... and I am afraid this missing in action will gone on for a little longer!!!

First up - Hubby got a new job!!!  Whoooo hooooo!!!  It is still with the military (thank heavens!), but it is requiring us to relocate!!!  This has made us very sad as when we built this house six years ago we thought this was where we would grow old.  We never planned to move away from here... but Uncle Sam has a different idea and when called we must go.... so.... we must go!!!

We are being moved to the Atlanta area (UGH!!!)... We spent nine days up there last week trying to find a place to live.  Let me tell you that was a disastrous adventure!  On day three we found a house, signed the lease and low and behold I had forgotten my check book at my friends house so I could pay the deposit.

Well the curve at this house was kind of steep!  And I was concerned about my car being able to go over the driveway.  I was so worried about it - I didn't sleep all night.  So the next morning instead of going to pay the deposit check - hubby and I drove 5 1/2 hours home, switched out the jeep for the car and drove 5 1/2 hours back just to find out the car wouldn't go in the drive without scrapping!!! It was bad!!!  We tried every way you can imagine and I swear it sounded like the oil pan was being ripped out from under the car!!  Thankfully since I had left my check book, we had not paid the deposit and we were able to get out of the lease!!!

Finally after several several more days of searching we finally agreed on this house!!!!

Then we came back and we have been packing every since!!!

Now if moving was stressful and time consuming enough, we have airline tickets for the holidays and since one of our family members is having some health issues we don't want to cancel!!! Plus the tickets are nonrefundable!!! And to add to that, we are also trying to rent out our house!!!

Thus I will probably be MIA for at least a month if not until the end of the year!!!

Hopefully once we get completely moved and settled in I will be back into blogging and business 110% (The new house has a much bigger scrapping area than our house now!!!!)

I will be hit and miss for the next month - but please know I am wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!  And please don't give up on me! I will be back!!!

Until Next Time!

Praying all goes without complications for the two of you and the move.
Don't worry about new files or blog posts- you uploaded tons of good files to the store this year, so we have plenty to keep us busy. Maybe we'll actually have to pay for some more if we want them!
