A Home and a Gala

Note: I am working on a starting a new blog, since my European Adventure's are over, so check back soon!

I am starting to feel normal again after a crazy month of being home. My house is starting to feel more like a home instead of a cold new place. (I promise to get pictures posted soon....really, I promise.) I do not feel settled yet and my patience is running out! I have things on the floor and so unorganized at the moment and it is driving me nuts. (I am an organized freak and hate clutter!!!) I walked upstairs yesterday where the media room is located (it will be a media room one of these days, but right now, it is my junk room!) and looked around wondering where to start. I picked up a few things then started feeling very overwhelmed and turned around, shut the door, and walked back downstairs! That is how I am dealing with things these days....just shutting the door and dealing with it later!

As proud and excited as I am over my new house, I have really not invited many people over because it is not perfect yet. Ok, ok, I know...I need to get over that....and I time! You know, when it is perfect! Just kidding....if I have not invited you over, just come on could be a while before everything is perfect!

Outside all of the house stuff I have been doing, I am starting to reconnect with some old friends! I went to a Catholic elementary and junior high school which only went to 8th grade (so many of us went to different high schools). This year marked the 20th year since we graduated (from 8th grade) and we decided to have a little reunion last weekend. Our class was not that big (maybe 40 people) so we were able to contact most of our former classmates for this event. The school was having their annual gala fundraiser event so we decided we would use that to host our reunion!

What a fantastic weekend we had. A few of us met up for happy hour last Friday night and then the Gala on Saturday night. A new school has been built since we were there so I was excited to see the new and improved Sacred Heart School! I really loved going to Sacred Heart...probably the best school years I ever had! Our class was the best, if I must say so myself, and we were all very close! I have stayed in contact with many of them over the years.

We had a great time reconnecting, talking about the past, and planning future events so we can all stay in contact! I love these friends so much!
Things are started to settle down for me, so I promise to be posting more frequently soon! I hope I am not losing any of my bloggy friends...I miss you all in blog-world!

    You won't loose me Sister! I think you and I are very much alike, I would TOTALLY be doing the same thing with the "junk room"!!! Just remember: How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time...This helps me, go do 1 thing then get outta there. Before long the room will look more ordered. Anyhoo, that's my little trick for dealing with my very overwhelmed nature!
    You take your time with the new blog, I can't wait to see it!
    love to you~Robin

  3. I miss you too! But I'm glad you are getting settled!
