Coming out of the dark...

Ages, that is.  The dark ages.  You know, those times without computers. 

We were down one in our house.  And since the hubs was the one looking for work and all, we thought it best that he use the laptop that I had mostly claimed as mine while I used... nothing.  Which meant that I could only get on the computer briefly.  For quick FB updates and no blog reading whatsoever.

I gotta be honest, the reprieve was quite nice and I did get a few other things done, like quilting and laundry.  I even played with my child! Oh the benefits of being unconnected!  I rather enjoyed it.  It was nice not having the computer so... available to my every whim.

But lest we get carried away and think that I would give it up forever, I am back.  With good news too!

1.  David got a job!!  He starts Monday and will be working from home.  This will certainly be a new and exciting adventure for us that will save on both the gas for the car bill and on eating out.  Commute time is great as well.

2.  Due to new job, new computer.  Which means that my laptop really has become my laptop!  And I have a desk which I am ridiculously excited about.  Since David needed an office to make this whole work from home thing actually, well, work, we converted the downstairs front bedroom which was doubling as a disaster area complete with old empty boxes and broken things shoved in every corner into an office.  Complete with a newly painted D.I. desk and wall art  I took before picture but am waiting for the finishing touches for the after.  So I now have sole possession of the other reclaimed desk that was so graciously bestowed upon us by our neighbors who moved and are still mourned.  I painted it black with a light green top.  David never knew what to think about the green. I fell in love with it immediately.  I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have fit through the doorway of his office without some creative sawing.  So it was pretty much destined to be mine.  So happy!

So.  New job, new workspace, new adventure.  Life is pretty good my friends.  Happy to be able to stay in Logan and share.


  1. Yay for the job!!!

    Ha! you are so cute :) I laughed right out loud about the "neighbors who moved and are still mourned". Thank you!! I mean, sorry for leaving, but thanks for missing me? Does that sound rude?? Seriously though, seeing you on Sunday made my whole week! :) Zoe and Kaia still like to sing your version of "Popcorn Popping" . Do you remember the email you sent me when you thought we were taking the for sale sign down, but Gabe was just going to mow the lawn? :) You are so wonderful. I'm so happy for you guys! I'm hoping to claim my own desk and space in the near future - and I hope I can paint mine as cool as yours! :) I can't tell you how happy I am you guys are staying in Logan.

  2. SO happy it has all worked out so well! Blessings everywhere :) Who does he work for that he'll get to work from home? I might be a little jealous..... :)

    1. Shari, it's a company called Earthsoft. He works on software. So nice to have hime at home even though it is an adjustment. :)

    2. Sweet! That's really great for you guys :) Are they based out of Utah? Or how did he know about them? I feel so behind :)

  3. What i do not realize is in truth how you are not really a lot more
    well-preferred than you might be right now. You are
    so intelligent. You understand therefore considerably in terms of this topic, produced me in my view imagine
    it from so many various angles. Its like women and men aren't involved unless it's something to accomplish with Girl gaga!
    Your individual stuffs great. All the time handle it up!
