Yep, I'm Still Alive

Hey, folks!  In case you are wondering, yes I am still alive.  It's just been a very busy week, and the internet wasn't working very well.  I haven't gone this long without blogging for quite some time so it was bound to happen.

Really, it was probably for the best that I didn't blog throughout the week.  We had some problems with our upcoming move--they didn't schedule it!  We were told a few different things--some of it obviously lies--but someone finally decided to intervene and help, and now it's all on track again.  We may not get our stuff for two weeks, but it's better than the alternatives they tried presenting us.

We did get something shocking this week, though--good news!  Throughout this entire moving process, we've never received good news.  It's always been "well, this was screwed up" or "this happened, so now you owe this amount of money" or something else along those lines.

So, the good news.  We thought we were going to lose about $5500 on the sale of our home.  In this market, that's not really all that bad, but it was still a little depressing.  Well, we got word from the organization that helped us with renovations when we first bought the house, that they were reducing the amount we owed them by almost $8000.  Not only are we no longer losing money on the house, but we may actually make something off it.  Amazing.

And of course, the best thing from this week?  Michael is home!  He arrived home early yesterday morning.  Our days between now and when we leave for Kansas on the 8th are going to be busy, but it's so great to have him back.  Six months apart was just too long.

I have a lot of catching up to do in blog land, but I may be a little behind for a while.  My sister's bridal shower and bachelorette party were last weekend so I plan to blog about that soon.  And today we have a going away party with Michael's family and some friends, so I'm sure I'll blog about that too.
