Hopefully this is the last post (at least for a few months) where I find myself wanting to open it by saying, “What a whirlwind!” “My head is spinning!” or “What the hell just happened?!”
As a lot of you know I’ve been in the process of closing off one chapter of my life to start a new one. They say that divorce and moving are among the top 5 stresses in life and I decided to tackle them at the same time. And not just a simple down the street move.. an 1800 mile move to my home state of Iowa that took two car trips. My bum is about as flat as a pancake from the 60+ hours I’ve spent in a car the last two weeks and my forehead looks like an etched road map of all my stress. Botox party, anyone?
Today I go and pick up the keys to my new place which I’m excited and nervous about. It comes with 2 acres that I’ll be tending to and it’s my first time renting a house and not some teeny tiny apartment. It’s also been about 6 years since I’ve lived alone and I’ll be out in the country, adding another factor of isolation. I’m sure I’ll be hypersensitive to every new creak and groan of the house and of course the new season of American Horror Story will not be helping my paranoia any, but I’m ready for this. I tend to work best when I’m alone and my creative side thrives on it.
I’m really looking forward to finally getting settled and being able to shift my focus back to what I love: THIS BLOG! Fall is my favorite cooking and crafting season, so I’ll be working on a ton of new projects to share with you.
Stay tuned for a brand new recipe tomorrow!
