It's been a while...

well, since October! It's hard to believe that the last time I wrote was when I was telling the world (or all three of my followers at least) that we were expecting a girl! Now that girl is a healthy, happy, and very wiggly 2 month old! She is the joy of my life! I am now a stay at home mommy, and really enjoying it. Although there are some challenges that come along with it. I am in the process of getting the house ready to sell, hopefully by next year about this time. There are several reasons we are waiting a year. Some personal that I don't feel I can or should share. Some financial. And some practical. For one, the floors still need to be finished! Yes, our project continues. Things just got busy! And the floors down the hallway and in both bathrooms are still not complete. But I am hoping they will be sometime this summer. We also need to have a little landscaping work done. I am scared to know how much that will cost. Yikes! But it has to be done. We had a tree fall (on our house, no less) a year or two ago, and since it is gone, the area on the right of our driveway looks horrendous!!! So we are going to put up a small retaining wall and plant some big pampas grass to screen out our neighbors (who I really like, but are really close!) and to make it look nice. Plus I hear it's hard to kill pampas grass. I will do my best though! :)

I will share pictures of everything soon...including Ava's room! That is one reason why I haven't posted anything...I was so busy prepping for baby, then having baby, then taking care of baby!!! :)

One last thing...some of you know me well. Some don't. I have a prayer request that I don't want to share in such an open format. Those that know me well know what I am talking about. Please just pray for strength and comfort for me, and several friends that are going through the same thing right now. If you would like to know details, I would be happy to share them with you. Just email me. But God knows, so all prayers are appreciated (and needed!!!)

I promise that I won't wait another 6 months before writing again!!!
