Mid-November already?! Sheesh time flies, especially when you do not blog about it. Speaking of blogging…Oh where is my blog? Oh where is my blog? Oh where, where oh, where oh, where oh, is my BLOG?! I may or may not have wrote that to the tune of Veggietales “Where is my hairbrush?,” which may or may not get sung around our house on a weekly basis because the darn hairbrush likes to play a mean game of hide-n-seek with us! Needless to say that little tune is a constant. And while I have not been MIA from my blog over a missing hairbrush (the entire time anyways), I have been a little UNPLUGGED…literally.
You see, in May we sold our flip house, rented it back for a few weeks, & hoped we would move straight into our Barnhouse on our land! Oklahoma would prove to have a consistently rainy spring to summer this year so that all got pushed back a month (or two!). Which pushed us into Jonathan’s parents house for like the forth time or something (I am not counting, but they might be keeping tabs because we not only invade with 2 grownups plus a kindergartener now, but THREE glorious pups as well…aka turning their home AND schedule, more-less LIFE, upside down :D). So what does that have to do with me blogging? Sounds like great posting material, no? You’re right…except we ended up moving into our Barnhouse on July 30th with the bare necessities, simple bare necessities…you know, running water (NOT hot, basically just brush your teeth & flush a toilet type situation), electricity, & all of our things. No propane (gas stove, hot water heater, etc), NO INTERNET, no moving into it all set-up and unpacked like I had envisioned, just good-old fashion living on our own, out of boxes, eating lots of take-out, & showering at sister’s (Hi Newlywed’s - thanks for the hot showers & laundry room!) or our parents (…y’all didn’t think we would ever fully leave the nest right?!)
It has been a process folks! A beautiful, first world process that I do not take for granted, seriously. However, I am beyond happy that we are finally to a full functioning home and able to welcome others over (my entertaining heart rejoices!)…except one small thing, we still DID NOT HAVE INTERNET?!! Gasp. What was a borderline-millennial who loves to blog to do!? Well she continued to work (mainly from her phone - the hubs LOVES our bill right now & not to mention I am not sure I have been getting all of the email inquiries because I am only on my phone, current fear of mine...), write, take photos, & carry on like she did before, only she didn’t get to post about it. And you know what? I’m a survivor-what?, I’m not gon' give up-what?, I'm not gon’ stop-what?, I’m gon' work harder-what? (…man I sure do miss Destiny’s Child, which is why I am only a borderline-millennial…I’m part of the glorious growing up in the 90s to early 2000s era of awesomeness)! ANYWAYS, I am basically in the midst of working this all out and learning to function without high-speed internet (not even good ol’ dialup AOL). Not sure how user-friendly my method will be, but I MISS MY BLOG and I am beyond ready to post again (with or without the internet; so take that AT&T and COX Communications! Just a little blogging humor...you can still try to run internet to our property please ;D).
So without further adieu, break out the donuts, someone pour me an ice cold Dr. Pepper, send me all of the good vibes (and possibly still send me high speed internet if you have any connections because it really does simplify a work-from-home-momma’s life...), & let’s get back to blogging y’all!!
