To begin with I hope you all don't think I have fallen off the planet, 'cause I have been here, just as a browser not a blogger. Here is what I have been doing, in list form of course.
1.) Prepare home in Indiana for moving in May 2011. Literally right after my last post.
2.) This preparation entailed Decluttering, Tossing, Cleaning, Repairing, Painting, Staging, Cancelling various things related to home and Moving. Various posts coming about these topics.
3.) Finding a home back in Pennsylvania where we previously lived 4 years ago. This is where we call home and all of our extended family (and friends) reside.
4.) Do all of this while husband travels and works during the week in Pennsylvania. I have 4 children to run around and get homework done etc. etc.
5.) August 2011, In Pennsylvania now, dealt with re-registering to schools, finding Dr's, getting physicals, joining sports, tying up loose ends in previous state.
6.) All of children are in school now. Time to dig out of boxes. Keep, Toss, Donate, things we brought with, amazing what you box up. Organize storage room for easy access to items used during the year. Post in the future on bin organization.
7.) Go room by room and make a list of all of the items I'll need to decorate home, including furniture that we desperately need. Make Excel spreadsheet. Done!!
8.) Halloween comes and goes. Prepared for Thanksgiving had fun with family. Decorate for the holidays. 1st Christmas spent back with family, since our second year in Indiana. It was so great to be here with them during the holidays. Run, Run, Run...Busy, Busy, Busy.
9.) Start eating less to lose weight beginning November 5th, 2011.
10.) Deal with the aftermath of Christmas/holidays, get some down time in and prepare for reposting on blog/facebook/twitter/pinterest. Getting organized all the while.
11.) Write down ideas for blog that have been trapped in my head. Change blog colors. Clean up items and make blog prettier.
12.) Start walking 30 minutes everyday, up and down the mountain we live off of.
13.) Reach 20 lb. weight loss goal as of January 15th, not bad for 2 months and 10 days. Lose 20 more for 40th birthday in March.
14.) Thank God everyday for getting me through the past year.
15.) Take a breath, now post content to blog.
Wooosh, did you get all of that. It's way more detailed than that but I'll only post about the good parts in future posts. All I can say is I am glad to be home. Because there's nothing like it!!
