Blog Slack BUT... Big News!



So yeah..I haven't posted on my blog in about a month, just shy. I think about baking, and I get out the cookbook, usually my TWD book and then I look at the recipe, and then I look at the couch ...and then I want to sleep.

Here's why. We're moving! We bought a new house and we have been 'moving' all month long. The process is pretty long and complicated because the new house has to have the 2nd family room modified back into a garage (someone's bright idea 20 years ago)....so the construction has hindered us from moving in entirely.

So we've been taking our town since we still have our existing place, and have been slowly moving things in and organizing as we go. 5 years in our place has turned us into CRAZY packrats. The new house, while way more expensive thanks to this ridiculous area where we live...is smaller sq ftage but has a very big front and back yard and an excellent elementary school for the child we don't have yet. So we have less space for more money, but actual dirt. Awesome!

No but really we are excited. But busy ... esp since how can I have SO MUCH STUFF I have to go through...and I haven't been baking hardly at all. It's so depressing. I even started craving cupcakes from OTHER places today, sacrilege. Desperate times.

Anyway, I just wanted to post and let you all know that I am still here and reading blogs, but just without time of my own (and within a few days without a kitchen as we are moving it this wkd)... to do anything. I am hoping to be BACK in the baking saddle come first or second week of Feb. Woop!!!!
