No, I haven’t forgotten about my blog. In fact, I’ve had it on my to-do list for the last two weeks, only I haven’t done any new projects or anything that seemed “blog-worthy.” Then I remembered it’s my blog and I can write whatever I want! I love having that kind of power.
For those of you who don’t know, my husband and I just bought our first home! The past couple of weeks have flown by as we searched and finally made an offer on a house. Then we had to deal with contracts and banks and paperwork and the like. As we (not so patiently) wait for our closing date, we’re starting to dream about what we can turn our home into.
Besides the standard paint for a couple of rooms, we both have grand ideas for spaces of our own. One of the basement rooms will be turned into a training room for Mr. Ironman himself and one of the upstairs bedrooms will become my craft room! I can’t tell you how excited I am about that, to have a dedicated space to putz and do my own thing, no matter how ridiculous.
The yard of the house has two garden plots, and I am SO EXCITED! I ordered some seeds last week and they arrived a few days ago. I bought some soil last night so I’m more than ready to get those seeds started. I love planning out my garden, deciding what to plant knowing that whatever the plants produce will help feed us through the summer and fall.
And more exciting plans: we’re heading back to Ireland! For some reason, Keith thinks a half Ironman sounds like fun, so this weekend we’re going to start planning our trip with a dear friend. Touring the beautiful country of Ireland for a week sounds pretty good right now, as it’s just barely above freezing here.
As my past has taught me, always plan with a grain of salt (does that even make sense? It does in my head, but that’s not saying much…). If there’s one thing I know to be true, the only constant is change. So here’s to making plans with every intention of them going awry and having a grand adventure instead!
