Guess Who's Back? Back Again...

Shady's Back.  Tell a friend. 

No just kidding, I'm clearly no Slim Shady.  But I'm back, finally after a few week blogging hiatus.  Miss me did you?

I don't want to bore you with every little specific detail of the last few weeks but let's just say it involved packing, unpacking, donating unwanted items, going through boxes of stuff asking myself, "why the heck did I even buy this in the first place!?!" and signing loads of paperwork to solidify the fact that I now own real estate.  Oh and not to mention filling out five thousand change of address forms for my many accounts. 

Also I must admit that the health kick we were on kind of fell to the wayside as eating out became a must.  I'm not kidding you when I tell you that it took us four days to find the pots & pans.  And the coffee pot has been located but the actual coffee to accompany the coffee pot is still MIA.   Anyway, my point here is that since I've not been eating like I should, well needless to say I've not been tracking what I've eaten nor done my weekly weigh ins for about four weeks.  I'll get back on track at some point.  I swear.  But I am kind of avoiding it.  I don't want to see the damage done that was caused by my hiatus. 

I am still trying to get this house in order which is why I've not posted pictures.  I'm planning an entire post dedicated to the new house but want everything to be in its place before I blog about it.

However for those that have not seen it.  Here it is.  Disregard the sattellite dish in the middle of the front yard.  Trees block our signal so this was the only spot for it.  I'll get over this eventually but for now I'm still annoyed ha ha.

Back to my this is our 1965 Brick Ranch (4 BR 2 BA) which has been recently renovated with all new tile and refinished original hard wood floors throughout. 

Also, a newly renovated kitchen and bathrooms make this house a first time home buyers dream!  We are so blessed.  Sometimes I think I'm dreaming and that this isn't real and they are going to call me and say "just kidding" please vacate the premises.  That feeling will soon fade as I'm quickly approaching the date that our first mortgage payment is due.

So here are a few shots from move in day.

So that about sums out my hiatus explanation.  Stay tuned for a more detailed post about the house in the next couple of weeks.  So much to do, such little time. 

Stay tuned for my next post on my Harris Teeter Super Double Coupon trip today.
