Hello there. Thanks so much for stopping by even though I don’t have anything to share today. Actually, I have a LOT to share, but it’s all stuck on my computer which (bad news) went into full-tantrum meltdown mode yesterday and is currently in time-out at the computer-fixer place. Please pray that they can recover it, because I have a ton of stuff on there I’d hate to lose. And consider this your friendly but stern reminder to BACK UP YOUR HARD DRIVE! Right now! Do it!
Anyway, so I’m blogging from my son’s computer, which has none of the programs I typically use to blog, but a lot of Minecraft. If you don’t hear from me for a while, I’ve been sucked into this mystery that is Minecraft.
So while we’re chatting here, let me get a few things off my chest. Like, I suppose now might be a good time to tell you that (good news!) I’m pregnant! “What the whaa?! I thought you were done having kids Lindsey!” you are thinking. Yeah, I thought that too. This was very much a surprise! (And yes, I know how it happens, thankyouverymuch). But we are excited. Baby #4 is due at the end of January, and I’m finally feeling pretty good, as in, I don’t lie face-down on the couch all day and need a nap after climbing the stairs anymore.
And here’s some so-so new: we’re moving. That was also unexpected and unplanned, but we got a good offer on our house, so we are shipping out. And soon! As in … the next week or so. (And I thought summertime was hectic). We aren’t going far, just to another neighborhood down the road, but we will be renting for a little while.
I’m having majorly mixed-feelings about it. Doesn’t help that I’m extra hormonal at the moment either, sheesh. I’m so sad to leave our home now; we’ve worked hard on it over the last five years, and I love our neighborhood. But I’m a teensy bit excited to rent, just because I want to push myself to be creative with trying to make a rental a home, and find some good ideas for making it feel like ‘us’ even though I can’t do anything permanent. Kind of sounds like a fun challenge, you know? So, I plan to be sharing more of what I’m up to on this here blog, and that will be fun too! Who’s with me!? Yay!
As you can see, life around these parts is rather coo coo crazy at the moment, so I will be putting off the Ugly Lamp Contest for another week. I was planning to get it up next week, but it will be the week of August 26th instead. So, there’s still time to get your submission in, although, with the amount of insanely ugly lamps I’ve received thus far, I’m afraid not everyone’s submission will make it into the contest. We’re only taking the top 18 ugliest of the ugly! Can’t wait!!
