I just happened to look at my blog today and found that it has had a huge surge of visitors. I figured I'd better give my readers something to, you know, read.
Many things have changed since my last post. My husband was laid off, but then hired by another company. With less than a week to move 100 miles away, life became quite hectic. Although we hired movers, there was still a lot to get done. I sold three of my fish tanks, including the saltwater reef, but have since bought two new 5.5 gallon tanks to replace them. We got rid of all our old furniture, only keeping our bed, two desks, and three office chairs. While we were unable to get a ground floor apartment, I love having a private balcony to do my barbecuing on. It also has a spectacular view, as you can see from the included picture of snowmen above.
As many of you have probably heard, we endured quite the snow storm here in the pacific northwest. The media made it seem much worse than it really was, but it was definitely an inconvenience. At that same time, my husband was very sick. When he began having trouble breathing on Sunday, I scraped all the ice off my car and we headed to the ER. The doctors
tortured him did all kinds of tests on him and decided to check him into the ICU. He was moved to non critical care on Tuesday afternoon, but wasn't discharged until Wednesday evening. During that time, I had to drive back and forth to grab things he needed from the apartment. The snow made that more difficult. Snow is beautiful, but I'm glad to be able to leave again.
