We interrupt this blog…with life.

Things are moving slowly but surely on the selling/buying house thing. We are like The Little Engine That Could…chugging our way up the mountain that seems impossible to climb. We can see the summit…it is SO CLOSE. But as with most things…it isn’t a sure thing until the last minute. There are still a couple things that could go wrong.

But we keep chugging.

We think we can….We think we can…We think we can

Anyway, part of the process is we have to tent our house to get rid of a few pesky termites. So I will be away from cyber space a lot this week…my house will be full of poison while we are away to the in-laws.

I know what you are thinking, “NO MERI! Is there a computer at your in laws???”

“Why yes, dear friends, there is.”

Problem is, my lovely Sophomore Son has procrastinated and needs to finish his thesis for his Honors History class…before this Friday. Friday he leaves for scout camp…multiple camps, two he will be a councilor for, and one he will be joining in to earn some of the last requirements before his Eagle. (And yes, that was a surprise Braggy McBraggerton right hook!)

Anyway. When he comes home, we’ll be moving (hopefully,) and then school starts.

So he has dibbs on the computer at the inlaws.


I’m sure I’ll find some online time…but blogging probably won’t be happening this week.


I’m already behind on reading blogs and I feel like the world is crashing down in a wave of responsibility and worry. But we’ll make it through…we will!

I’m not even going to go into the fact that J leaves for Camp with M on Friday…and will be gone for 10 days. Nope, not even thinking about it. A girl can only take so much before she soars off the edge. And school starting, with conferences and 504 meetings, and J starting Jr. High…NOPE, not even on my mind. No siree!


(That was merely a mind wiping scream. I’m not thinking it about it anymore…honest.)

So until then…adieu. Much love to my peeps. May your nights be full of good numbers, sleep and happy dreams. And may your days be full of love and laughter.
(I know, I know, real life has to happen too…but a gal can send good vibes your way, can she not?)


  1. What am I going to do with out a daily dose of Meri?

  2. I'm going to miss you girl! Enjoy your break away from cyber space. Sending good house vibes your way.

  3. Good luck with everything you have going on! Moving is a 4 letter word in my book...hope yours goes well. We will miss you!

  4. Pfft...don't even worry about it. Just think of all the awesome posts you will have when you get back.

    Enjoy your time off.

  5. Good luck, God bless, hope the bugs leave and you get some non-blogging time to yourself! plenty of time to catch up later!

  6. I call a halt to all blogging activity until you return. We shall ban together and strike until those damn termites retreat and your home is poison free :)

    In addition, please know that you are ripping our hearts out with one single post, as most of us will be lost until you return to our blogger dashboard or Google reader. However, all will be forgiven when you meet us in you know where :) Adding additional pressure to the "you have no choice" clause previously mentioned.

    bahahahahahaha! LOVE YA MERI!!!

  7. You're an amazing woman. Good luck with sending the termites to happy termite heaven and keeping all the boys' schedules straight!
    Don't think of us, just enjoy the break. Read a book, take a bubble bath...

  8. well you have to hurry back because none of us can stand the whole week with out the Meri and the boys . Omg I sound like the dukes of hazzard tune . LOL !!I hope you will be back soon .

  9. I'm going to miss you Meri but have a nice peaceful vacation away!!


  10. NO NO NO - Please don't go. Don't go! Missing you already!

  11. Hmmmm.... you know there is a blogging app for the iphone, don't you?!? ;)

    Wishing you a termite free house, a heart full of joy, fast moving housing details, a brain free of worries, and nights full of peaceful sleep!

    We're always here if you need us!

  12. Boo Hoo! You will be missed. Hurry back! : )

  13. Aw, you're going to be so missed, Meri! Can't wait to hear all about your visit and all the activities with your kids when you come back!
