Are you there, World? It's me...Colleen

So we moved.

There's that.

And the billions upon billions of things that came along with that.


You may want to just skip this post. It's going to be a lot of complaining. And there's no pictures. I'm just too tired. Not that anyone is really worried about all know I'm going to inundate you with photos soon enough. :)

I'm just tired. And in a funk. A tired, funky, funky funk. Can't seem to get into a daily groove for the life of me. I'm blaming it on being in a new house. All the stress that the cosmos have suddenly dumped on us isn't really helping either. Everything always seems to happen at once. We make a move (which just drains the finances) and the work in our area dries up at the same time. Some work would be nice, Universe. If you could just throw some work our way, we'd have nothing to complain about. The no work kinda putting a damper on this beautiful time of year for us. See we need the work in order to earn that All Mighty dollar.... Doesn't matter who you are - your little world stops pretty suddenly when that All Mighty dollar is threatened.

I'm just so tired of this economy throwing us curve balls. Every single time we are back on our feet, with light hearts, smiles on our faces...plans of FINALLY starting a family....something happens. Something always happens. Whatever that something is knocks us down again, and scares us enough to wait a little longer to start that family that we both want so bad. It just feels like the time is never going to be right. Ever. No matter how hard we work for it, how right we try to go about everything, or how much we want it. And we're not spring chicks anymore - we're working with a window of time here.

On a brighter note!!!!!

Dogs. Love. New. House.

Really - they love it. They've been playing non-stop for the last two weeks. They run around chasing each other and playing tug of war with branches. Fletch has taken up a very disturbing, and very emphatic courting of Crystal (which of course means he's been humping her non-stop....just gross), this of course means Mobee then has to try to imitate him (hilarious since he's only a foot off the ground). Needless to say the nerds have been keeping the smiles in our house plentiful, despite all the mean reds that have been floating around. And trust me, there have been a lot of mean, mean reds up in this bitch.

I'm also rather partial to our new house. It was a horror story to move into (another day, another post) which is why I've been away from the blog for so long (has it really been three weeks???). Now that we've got it in order though, I feel that I can breathe easier here. There are a few things that will take some getting used to. Such as the fact that we are out in the country now and the spiders are HUGE. Or the fact that we have three 90-gallon trash cans that we have filled each week and still haven't even made a dent in the leaves laying about our yard. I'm also having to learn how to cook on an electric stove...I swear I've burnt a portion of each meal I've made over the last two weeks. Just burned the crap out of it. To a crisp. I could elaborate, but you get the picture.

Ahhhhh, just look at all the fun stories you guys get to look forward to! Me whining and complaining in all my glory! You lucky, lucky ducks! :D

'til next time...


  1. I'm so glad you posted this. I got into a funk today. I'm on a funk changes hourly. Moving is so difficult, and I feel ya.

    I can't get into a grove either and I am just feeling homesick.

    I'm glad to know that I am not alone.

  2. Ha! Trust me Shelia! You are not alone! It's the absolute worst that this is the time of year that it happens during. Last year we moved from California at the end of last Fall was kind of crappy too. Which sucks because Halloween is my favorite holiday. I can't remember the last relaxing, fun Halloween we've had. NEXT YEAR DAMMIT!!!!!! IT"S GONNA BE FUN NEXT YEAR!!! (my mantra for the last three years)

  3. Glad you all are settling in and that the dogs are doing well with it too. :) I don't know that any time is THE right time to start a family, but obviously some times are better than others. I hope things smooth out for you economically soon.


  4. Thanks, Sara! We've been here before and we've always managed to come out of it! I'm just tired, overwhelmed and more than a tad bit things are probably looking a little worse than the actually are.
    btw I loved your Super Self Love post. It was pretty awesome. :)

  5. only got 2 mins so can't read but will pop back! happy new home - hope you are feeling less cranky by now!

  6. Hey Colleen,

    So sorry to hear about things being down in the dumps. Sometimes, days (and weeks) just suck. So I’m sorry you’re there and hoping that things improve shortly.

    As for Mobee, while that little pup may only be a foot off the ground, I can attest to his intimidation skills. And I love him for it. And that fact that he’s the cutest little prairie dog that I’ve ever seen. :)


Your comments simply make my day!
Thanks so much for stopping by - hope to see you again!
