Fashioning My Cyber Microcosm: Thrusting Forward, Full Speed.

It would seem that many of the bloggers I follow are experiencing a sudden influx of things gobbling time.
Mostly good news, as I've been reading!

I too have been utterly busy in the best of ways.

It must be the spring winds upon us.

Most of you know about the house hunting I've been doing, and the prospects of moving. However, an itty bitty handful of you are actually privy to certain monumental-completely-life-changing news that I've been holding and holding back to announce until the process is good and well underway.
Well, the time has come to unveil...

I am about to become a first time homeowner. This weekend we had looked at 17 houses in one day, and put an offer to one of those.

Ack!

This is why my posts have been a little dry; very minimal traffic than usual, this is how I came to that conclusion. There's not much going on in my head dealing with anything aside the sea of papers, and hopes, and expectations... and everything that comes with such a task.

Ok, so that's a lie. Before we first got the news about moving, I was working on a few projects for two ladies-- one of them is a friend from high school, and we've made an arrangement between the two of us that I shall make her some costumes for the Calgary Comic Expo this coming April. It's becoming more and more star studded as the years progress-- I bet in a few more, it can rival those you can visit in Vegas! Just look at the line up for 2014! I really wish there was a possibility of attending myself...

Unsurprisingly, it's been a little difficult meeting the deadlines I set for each part of each costume-- it should've all been done by the end of March, but since we got the news I haven't had the free time I was expecting to have. I'm making her a total of two costumes, and I only have one about half way done.
This is pretty horrid. If she were a stranger, they'd have fired my ass but quick.
Though I have definitely learned a valuable lesson in time management between the commitments I have with her, the other acquaintance, and house buying.

I probably shouldn't even be spending time writing a blog post... but I can't contain my excitement!

    1. Indeed! That's really all our Realtor has been pushing us on, to check the plumbing.
      I'm really hoping that the new house gets an ok from the inspector.

    1. Yes! I'm so thrilled and scared of the idea, haha!
      So far the process has been relatively painless... just a lot of work! I was actually thinking of you in all this-- I mean, we're buying an already made house... I was wondering where the heck one starts to even build one from the ground up! Or even move an entire house from one place to another! You've got some mad powers of organization and planning!
      I don't think I could ever take that on.

    2. Oh, I don't know ... I bet you could. ;)

    1. That was nearly my reaction too when my husband came to me and said "I think we may buy a house, what do you think?"
      Heheh, I'm super excited!
