I don't even know what to title this post.

I think I've beat "I'm back" like a dead horse by now.

Trust me: life has been insane. Insane in the membrane, insane in the brain.

Let's just go topic by topic, shall we?

The house is coming along.
I will post pictures of the interior once it's completed.
I would say it's about 85% of the way there.

We had a major undertaking with this house. It was built in the late 50s and I'm fairly certain that we were dealing with the original paint/wallpaper. We have so far painted every bedroom, the living room and dining room.

Our next room to tackle is the kitchen. The wallpaper is so unfortunate it makes me not be able to breathe. Let's just say that if I never see fruit wallpaper/border/light switch covers again it will be too soon.

My bathroom is slightly done. I still need to take down the border and repaint the walls, but the tile is actually kind of pretty.

My promotion has been more work than I anticipated.
I'm not complaining by any means, but I have been kind of overwhelmed at certain aspects of it.

I'm basically working 60 hour work weeks right now, which is another reason I've been absent.

When I was in retail before, my mom bought me a little wall hanging that says "Having a career is not the same as having a life." Truer words were never <strike>hung on my wall</strike> spoken.

But, I'm back in that boat that I swore I would never be in again. Never say never, am I right? I'm grateful for my job and I know I need to pay my dues, so I'm chalking it all up to experience right now.

Recently I started dating someone and it was wonderful. Key word here: was.
Turns out my penchant for attracting the wrong kind of male specimen is still in full swing. This time, however, it was concealed with the "I'm a good guy" scent. So, it wasn't as easy to recognize. It was actually never on my mind that this guy wasn't what he appeared to be, which is strange because I usually start to think that from the first second I meet someone. I won't go into detail because...well...I'm going to have to file it in the "that's none of your business" file, but suffice it to say I could write a book. A good book. Like
NY Times best selling book.

I was really sad about it for a while. I think I'm still getting over it. But I know that there's a reason that I went through what I went through. I'm just praying that when the right one comes along that God will soften my heart to him and allow me to let him in; I know he will.

So, for the last time....I'm back.
Now to catch up on all of your lives!
