Not just a trip!
Last week we took our annual week off for our anniversary.
Since I last wrote, I’ve been on a nonstop little rollercoaster that doesn’t seem to want to slow down.
It started off great! We went on our yearly vacation, and we went to Panama City Beach. It was great! We snorkeled, we went to a ridiculously cute museum, beaches, the whole 9 yards. The whole time people are coming to look at our house which has been on the market, and we’re just over there “yep, go on in!” We had a great -and much needed- vacation.
So we come home, and we got an offer on our house! Very excited! Then we didn’t get it in writing for over a week….but we also got 2 more offers! Omg! Everything was going great. So we took an offer, the only “downside” to this…we have to be out by Sept. 24. Yes, that is 9 days from today.
So now we’ve been trying to up our house search, which has been difficult because it’s been a busy time for my husband’s job…and also it’s football season. We’re trying to hit up a few houses on each free day we have, but we already know we’re not going to be able to find a house and move into it in less than 2 weeks time. We have a backup plan, but it’s going to be a little challenging. It also means no sewing, no DVR, (Hi my name is Ashley and I’m addicted to TV) hopefully it will just encourage us to find our next home really fast. It’s just tricky because so many homes are being listed and coming off almost as quickly as they are listed. Out of about 40 or so homes we sent to a realtor only about 20 of them are still available. Craaazyyyy!
I have been able to do at least SOME sewing. I made a cute little yellow and white chevron (Wait. Can we talk about how it used to be zigzag, and now everyone’s calling it chevron? I know I do it too, but why? ^ that is a chevron. Anyway…) wallet and I’m starting up a little project that, once I get moved, I think will really kick off nicely. My friend has been in a tough situation for quite some time now, and I had thought “I want to do some sort of charity thing to help her out with her crazy bills” but I wasn’t sure how to do it. Well we both kind of talked about it and I am going to make my profits partially go to her to help her out, and to raise awareness for leukodystrophy. I’m going to make more wallets that are going to have a little blue ribbon as well as anchors and chevrons…(zigzags).
I’m really looking forward to getting this project up and going, it’s just not very easy to find sewing time right now. I may have to skip football Saturday (omg blasphemy!) to get some sewing in before I can’t for a while.
Anyhow, that’s what I’ve been up to lately! That’s why I haven’t been blogging, lol.
Until next time, happy sewing!
