Moving

Thursday, August 11, 2011
Sorry guys, I haven't been ignoring you...really...not intentionally anyway....

First my computer goes out and I am without internet and picture uploading capabilities for weeks!  It was TORTURE!!  But now I have a loaner from my Mom-in-law. So I can TRY to catch up.... *whew* crisis averted there.... but now....

WE'RE MOVING!!!
Guess where....




Yerp...JOMO. (That's Joplin, Missouri...)

(is it just me or is it totally hard to differenciate between the state of Missouri and Alabama??  Am I the only one seeing the similarities in shape??  It IS just me?  Harsh...)

We are repairing the damage to a home in Joplin (and when I say "we" I mean mostly my lovely MIL) and should be in sometime before October but we have to be out of our current place before the end of August...so we will be a bit nomadic for a month or so... but that's no biggie, I spent most of my college years as a nomad so I'm good.  (and yes, I always had an apartment in college, but I spent so much time going to Houston to see my folks or to Dallas to see my friends that I was hardly there unless it was the middle of the week and I was asleep...)

I have to bid farewell to my beautiful Texas...*oh how I love thee...*  To say that I am a tad stressed would be an understatement. I am STRESSED OUT OF MY MIND!! (Hence my insane rambling today)  The moving truck comes tomorrow and its like 11:00am and we aren't even close to being finished yet!!! 

So...that is why I have been absent.  Really once I get plugged in and settled I am going to have TONS of cookie posts...and some before and afters of the house we're moving into perhaps. 

Ok, now where did I put that packing tape?
