Where has the time gone?...

Oh my!!! It has been a YEAR since my last post, and what a year it has been!

Sept - March:  renovated new house (aka the money pit)
Nov:  moved into new house
Dec:  Prince Charles moved home, with a kitten (Atta, the indoor cat)
March:  I manage the yarn shop while owner has back surgery
              Mom visits for the month
May:   Mom has back surgery and I help out with her recoop
           Husband brings home new cat (Smitty, the outdoor cat)
June:  Mom moves in with us, for good
July:   Marley moves in with us (an adorable basset hound/lab mix)
Aug:   New drainage and hardscaping 
           5 days w/o water = New pressure tank, one week later, no hot water
Sept:  landscaping plans
Oct:  possibly paint the exterior, but we've been waiting for 2 months
         possibly hiring a new painter

Just one year ago we were empty nesters.  Now we have our son, my mother, two cats and a dog living with us.  It all sounds like a lot, but it is really a blessing.

The house still has areas that need work, but that can wait for now.  This time of year, I am in love with the property!

YAY! You posted!
I would be in HEAVEN in your woods this time of year... hearing the leaves crunch underfoot, feeling the crisp air and smelling damp earth, watching the dog chase squirrels..... rewards for all the work and changes of the past year. You've earned them!
