Searching...

I've been somewhat absent in my blogging and blog hopping lately. There is a good reason... A week ago a representative for my landlady (Violet) called and said that she had passed away. She was a lovely elderly woman that we've rented our home from for six years. Anyway, the trust that now owns the house has to be liquidated in order to disperse her estate to her heirs. The house is not in a neighborhood that we really would want to buy in, plus, with massive medical bills over the past two years (my motorcycle wreck and my husbands winning battle with cancer), we aren't in a position to buy, so... we've been searching for another house to rent. The agent we have knew and worked with Violet, so she knows our situation and has been showing us very comparable homes. Anyway... until we find a place and complete the move, I will be hit or miss with my blogging. One benefit for you is that, we are going to have to downsize... That means DESTASH! So when I finally do my giveaway, there will be lots of things to giveaway. So stay tuned!
