Life is Happening...

I lived in one house my entire life until I left for college at 22. It was all good - I wasn't a lazy out-of-work slob, or a mama's boy, or even a free-loading playboy. I had a great job, great friends and really, a great life.

At college I lived in a dorm and then an apartment, got married in my 3rd year and lived in a little trailer outside of our small college town for 10 years. We moved to our current home 15 years ago, and my children were only 4 and 5 when we moved in to our current house.

And I'm 50 now. Our son is disabled and as he has grown, it has become very evident to us that we need a home that better helps us serve and minister to his needs.

I share all this to relay the news that in the last 2 weeks, we have sold our home and need to be out in 2 weeks, are currently looking for temporary housing, and are shopping for land and designing a new home - nothing extravagant - but something that will work well for our situation.

So - I won't have a lot of spare time to blog about my '70s memories for a little while. I will certainly throw out the occasional thoughts when time allows, but it will be a bit thin probably until mid-February or so. I have endeavored to blog at least every 3 or 4 days since starting my blog, and it bugs me when bloggers just fade out, so I just want to get it out there that while I may be on a little hiatus, I am not out of the picture. I will be back full force reliving those '70s with you soon!

Happy blogging, and long live the '70s!

Oh I hope you don't fade out. All my faves tend to do that. I'm sure you will be busy though. Building a house from the ground up, I can't even imagine. Best wishes for a smooth move and all that :)

Hey, Ally. Rest assured that I will not be fading out... "The force is strong in this one" (regarding '70s pop culture "Stuff").

Thanks so much for the well-wishes! In my "real-life" I'm an Architect and have done plans for close to 50 homes over the last 20+ years, so it's not totally foreign to me. And we just closed on our existing house and signed papers for a really nice rental on a month to month basis for the interim, so after we get moved in, things should settle into a routine of sorts.

I appreciate the wishes though... even if I "know how" to do this, the process is huge!

Anyway, best wishes to you, too... and watch for me in the blogosphere as I am able to get there.
