Steven (that's the husband) left September of 2014 to start his new job in Idaho Falls... Hunter (that's the teenage boy who still lives) and I stayed in Virgina to get the house ready for the market and to finish the school year out. Jewel (that's the daughter who is now married) decided that she wanted to get married to Bentrick ( that's the son-in-love). Which meant I planned a wedding all by myself (well jewel helped with ideas but the actual pulling off of the ideas was mostly me) but it was fun and it kept my mind off of Steven being gone. He got to come home for Christmas and the wedding which was awesome cause that was two weeks we had with him. I purged the house of all the things we didn't need anymore, that was 15 kragen (which is what we call our Nissan murano) fulls of stuff off to goodwill and when I say full I mean I was the only one who could fit in the car in the drivers seat... all other seats were folded down and the kragen was full!!! After all of that there was organizing the whole house to get it ready for showings. Then the painting and staging and keeping it spotless and leaving for showings... ummm selling a house is not the easiest of things to do... just sayin...

So now I am typing this and uploading pictures from the trip so that I can procrastinate and not unpack boxes but my procrastinating time is drawing to a close, I would like to finish the kitchen today so that we can have a lovely home cooked meal because I am tired of take out!!!
Fish Bench in Idaho Falls
New Town, New Hair, Same Old Me
Oh yes there was arting time in there sometimes because I needed to keep up with my wonderful WWATC peoples but alas no blogging, because silly me thought that uploading them to our facebook group and the WWATC blog meant that I blogged about them on this blog... yeah told you I was silly, and I may have forgotten to mention that somewhere in that 9 months of everything that was going on in my life I may have lost my mind, not sure where yet, but I am pretty sure it is gone!!!
some of my Wicked Wednesday ATC (WWATC) projects!
a Little Art Journaling
and to top it all off I started participating with Listers Gotta List!
So now off to do more unpacking because the sooner I finish the kitchen and living room and office the sooner I can get into the art studio and get that set up so I can start arting again!!!
