Taking a short break.

I've been MIA for a couple of weeks.  I've been a busy girl.  We have been preparing our home to sell and it has keep us busy and also, we decided to move to Robert's aunt's lake house while doing this and while it is being shown.  We have four cats and it is better not to have pets in the home while trying to sell it.  Also, hubby works days and nights.  And when he is working nights he has to sleep during the day, and having to get up and leave for a house showing would be very difficult.  We will be back and forth some.  And, most important of all, is that we are very messy people, and the stress of keeping our home show ready would just be unbearable.  Right now I'm in the house for a few days doing some work.  It's been nice to have internet and cable as we don't have that at the lake.  It can be a distraction though...

My menu planning has gone out the window.  It's just to difficult to plan too far ahead right now.  But I will be back soon with that and will try to keep you updated with the house sale.

Thanks for stopping by.  Check back again later.
