Surfacing from the depths

Where HAVE I been? Life has just been utterly, completely crazy, and I've had to take some time out from a few things to stay on top of other, more important stuff. And gee... there's Christmas, racing towards us.....

So, we took possession of our house 11 days ago and we're still sorting out a few minor bits and pieces. The plan was to build our McMansion in 20 weeks - the timeframe was even "guaranteed" by the builder. Reality bit HARD and it took 40 weeks instead. Meh, moving on...I'm bored with the whole thing myself, so I won't drone on about it here. We're moving house next weekend, but the past week and a half has been a flurry of activity for us, with a billion things to organise. Not to mention the many, many weeks of stress-filled activity before that.

Training has had to take a back seat. There are only so many hours in a day, after all, so it's been a bit hit and miss. More miss than hit, really. But this morning, I cranked out a fairly brutal weight training session and I can feel the DOMS starting already. Feels goooooooood!

As for blogging, that's been a luxury extra I've just not had time or inclination for (except for my house-building blog and that's been more of an essential letting-off-steam thing). I've barely even read a blog. In fact, I just logged onto Google Reader to find that I had 283 unread items. Yeesh. I might be a while catching up, so excuse me if I haven't commented lately. Please. Same goes for replying to emails, or Facebook messages. Or forum posts...there's only so many hours in a day, y'know.

Tomorrow things move forward a little, with our appliances being installed and some minor electrical work being done. The next day, our carpet goes in. Then we get to move in. I also get to be without broadband temporarily. Great. Oh, but I can finally put up my Christmas tree. :o)

The end is nigh. I just have to survive another week or so. Then Christmas. Then normal life can resume. Phew.

Hope all settles soon, as least you can put up the Chrissy tree :)
That'll make you smile!

You'll have to come for another visit and check out the new place. :o) It might not look quite the same as the display, with our crappy furniture in it....
