Under Construction

I did not fall of the face of the blogosphere. I am under construction. Not my site.  We are in the last stages of a major move. Really a double move. Moving into parents house moving out of ours.

Cleaning up, some redecorating and remodeling on our house and packing our belongings. I am getting really tired. And for my artsy side at the worst point. All my stuff is currently packed up save for a few items!!!!!  My friend Jeny has been helping me and keeping me going when I just want to curl up in a corner and take a long nap.  Tomorrow if I am not exhausted we are painted the wood paneling in my pare
