Settling in.

We're officially out of our old house and into our new one. Some parts took some fancy brainstorming to get past, such as how to get a queen-sized box spring up a narrow stairwell. My husband and one of my man-besties ended up having to climb on the roof and pull it in through the balcony. It was moderately entertaining and incredibly terrifying. I'm glad they both made it safely. I suppose everything is funnier in hindsight. Now we're slowly unpacking and turning an empty shell into a home.

We've also run into the typical moving adventures. Things needing repairs and having to wait on repair-people. Usually I find a random stash of junk that people leave behind, but this landlord did a pretty good job of cleaning everything out.

I'm finding that I'm a bit less trusting of landlords and their promises of repairs/solutions, after our last 3. So far, we've been pretty fortunate with this one. The process isn't super fast, but at least they're getting done. I suppose this is one of those things that I need to work on. It's been pretty difficult to just sit back, take a breather, and trust things will be taken care of.

I've had some family situations pop up, that have been taking up a lot of my time. I don't feel comfortable getting into too much detail, but if you could keep my family in your thoughts and prayers, that would be much appreciated.

Book-wise, I've been doing a lot of editing. I'm not sure when I'll have a cover for Blood of Eirny, but I'll let you know as soon as I do. I'm also going to go back through The Rapture of Avery Maye and do another edit there.

I also might have a surprise sometime in the near future.

I've also been doing a bit of reading. I'm currently working on Baby by JK Accinni. I seriously love it, and it's different from anything I've read before! I'll be writing a review as soon as I finish these last two chapters!

I am brainstorming for a vlog. I keep getting requests, and I really need to pull one together. If there's anything you want to see on one, let me know! Comment here, email me, or send a message to my Facebook page.

    1. It was pretty funny! They had to walk out onto the roof from the balcony and have 2 guys push it up for them. Then they dragged it up the rest of the way, across the roof, over the balcony rails, and through the sliding glass door. I was a nervous wreck

  3. I feel for you on the Moving adventure. I just had to do it and it's no fun. I prefer packing over unpacking any day.
