I have had a calendar reminder for weeks to sit down and write some posts, and I keep moving it to the next day.
It's amazing just how much we keep finding to stay busy as we settle into our new home and new routine. In addition to work and general life (laundry, dinner, cleaning, and most especially our time with Connor), we keep adding to the list of things to get done around the house. Sure, we keep crossing things off, too. But it seems like we're adding more than we ever get done!
I know in time we will feel more settled, but for now I'm anxious to get the small projects completed (like fixing a hole in the pantry door, or replacing door stops that are worn out) so that we can focus more on the fun task of decorating. We have plenty to get hung on the walls, and we need to decide how to arrange things on bookshelves to make them look nice. And I have a lot of empty picture frames that I need to print something to go in them.
It's definitely fun and exciting to make this new house our home, but I'm also ready to just have it done. We've come a long way in only a month since we started packing everything up on the other end, but we just still aren't quite 100% where I'd like us to be.
All this to say, I'll eventually blog with more regularity again, but I hope you won't disappear on me if I am still a bit quiet for a little while. I love blogging, but sometimes when I've got a to do list a mile long, I just can't sit still long enough to share a meaningful post. However, never fear - I'm still keeping up with all the blogs I like to read! Sometimes I catch up on them on my phone before going to sleep, and it's an awesome way to relax a bit and see what everyone is up to!
I'll be back soon with a race report from our September race - it entailed running through a corn maze!
