I apologize for disappearing for a bit. I have had a hard time concentrating on reading and blogging with all of the events surrounding the murder of George Floyd. Some of the things that have happened lately are just really hard to wrap my mind around. We must do better.
And then there was this other little thing…
I bought a house. This was kind of unplanned. We have lived in the same house for almost 20 years and really had no plans to move. We have always liked our house but have often wished it had a few features that it doesn’t. One of the houses in our subdivision that we walk the dogs by daily was listed for sale and it has all of the things we wished our house had. My husband and I decided to give it a shot. I had to hurry up and get us pre-approved for a mortgage and schedule a time to see the house. Everything moved very quickly with the house being shown for 2 days and offers due by 9pm on the second day. The owner looked at the 6 offers she received and made a decision on Saturday. I was thrilled that our offer won out against the others.
For the next couple of months…
I have 20 years’ worth of crap stashed in my current house that needs to be sorted and a lot of it needs to be purged. I will have to get my house ready to sell while juggling inspections for the new house. There is so much to do and a lot of stress involved. I don’t think that I will have the time or energy to dedicate to reading and blogging as I would normally have but I have no plans to go away! My plan right now is to continue posting Books from the Backlog every week, along with a weekly update, and reviews when I can. I don’t believe that I will be able to keep up with daily posts or comments for a while but will do what I can.
I value every one of my readers and thank you for your patience during the next couple of months.
