A Quiet Month

Well, I've sure been quiet, huh? It all started with that darn "Blog Every Day For a Month" thing. I have this fear of committment, so I just gave up and waited it out until January.

So here I am.

Don't get me wrong, I've had plenty to blog about, let me tell ya.

Goofy's December/January in a nutshell:
- celebrated an anniversary (Good God...SIXTEEN YEARS!!)

- celebrated a birthday (Holy Moley...FORTY-ONE YEARS!!!!)

- felt very old, so took a nap

- took Goofy Junior to a Nutcracker Tea Party (where he announced during a lull in the action, "When I grow up....I want to be a Ballerina". I'm so proud)

- sold our house on the day before Christmas Eve (complete with visiting family members twiddling thumbs in living room as we signed paperwork with the buyer's agent)

- hosted Christmas dinner

- had a very quiet New Year's Eve at home (the first one ever, I think)

- bought a new house on New Year's Day

- had the buyers of our house get cold feet and back out THREE DAYS after we bought the new one

- had quick nervous breakdown wondering how this would all work out

- regrouped and had open house this past Sunday (in the sleet/ice storm - surprisingly, 1 person actually showed up)

- had inspection of rental house

- promptly failed inspection of rental house (electric still not working, water not turned on - picky, picky)

- took matters into my own hands and called city, power company and electrician and played the Whose Problem Is This? game for a few weeks

- finally got electric on (Yeah!)

- finally got water on (Yeah!)

- have two leaks in plumbing (Boo!)

- promptly turned water off (Boo!) and called plumber

- planned and executed company holiday party (shoot, this was easy compared to the rest of the month!)

So what have you all been up too? I've missed you all!
