Wow, so where's she been?

It's been more than two months since I posted anything.

In that two months, chaos (good chaos, but still) has entered our lives.

My husband accepted a new job. One that's several states away. We've been communicating by phone and by Skype. Needless to say, that's not the same.

I've been parenting three kids essentially alone. Getting a house ready for sale. Trying to finish my master's degree this semester.

Oh, and my boss threw a monkey wrench at me, shuffled me to a different department, and for the past two weeks, I've been learning a new job. It's a good move (not that I think he meant it to be one, but it was).

I've had updates occasionally on Facebook, but for the most part, I've been keeping things to myself.

I've had to call in the help of family and friends. I'm not completely comfortable with that. I'm a pretty self-reliant person, to the point that I overdo. This time, I'm trying to call out the troops sooner.

So, I'll be posting infrequently. The house goes on the market tomorrow. I'm hoping for a relatively quick sale. If it sells by summer in this market, I'll be happy.

I'd like for our family to all be in one house again. Here's hoping this all works out the way we want it.
