Been A While

It’s been a while, WordPress and friends. I have been busy with general life things – perhaps that’s not an excuse, but I’m still trying to get better with updating my blog despite having so many other things going on. I know lots of bloggers do it, so what is stopping me? To give a … Continue reading

The Good, The Bad, and the Houses

It has been a long and hard couple of weeks. I guess when I said July was the month that was being mean to me, I should have just thrown August in there too. Some good things are happening though, now that we’re nearing the end, and there is a light at the end of … Continue reading

Be Vewy Quiet – I’m Hunting Houses
