I’ve been a lot quieter than usual. I know that’s difficult to comprehend, me being quiet. No one in my family would believe me if I told them, but this introvert has had to withdraw from the world as much as possible for sanity.
We’re getting so close to the house being finished. Maybe 30 days, or so, from when we close. It seems like it’s been an age since we started, and really, it has been. But, as I pop in here and there to see the progress I’m pleasantly surprised at the changes during each new visit.
We’re not building anything grand, just a small house for the three of us, with a little more room than we have now. I’ll have an office, something I’ve been missing, which means I will have a small studio area for photography and writing. I realize what a very lucky girl I am to be able to do this.
Christmas is almost upon us and between the holiday celebrations, move preprations, and research for my book, I’m feeling overwhelmed. Have I mentioned I am also making a few TV appearances here and there? Tomorrow, I will be in Asheville, NC, to hang out with the folks at WLOS and talk about products you can use during holiday travel to help keep you healthy.
It’s part of the research “bug,” if you could call it that, which I acquired at a very early age. To find the best possible product, I’ll spend hours researching. When it was time for us to buy a new TV, I’m pretty sure I was this close to sleeping on the sofa — as I killed my phone, and my husbands, while standing in Best Buy. The bad thing is, this was after I’d already spent a good 10+ hours researching televisions. I will say I have eased up on the research a great deal since then.
So, that’s life, in a nutshell. I’m keeping it short as I’ve have to be up super early (2am) to get ready to leave for Asheville. Which means I need to now wear myself out in order to go to bed at 7pm. If you know me well, you are laughing at the wake-up call time. I’m more of a go to bed at 2am and get up at 9am kind of gal.
