“Where Have You Been?”

So it seems that I’ve desperately neglected the blog over the last year or so. I guess I kind of have an excuse because I’ve been a little busy. Here’s a quick recap of what has been going on in our lives.

  • December 2011 – We bought a foreclosed home, moved in, and began a complete renovation of the house with lots of help from our family and friends.
  • March 2012 – We got a puppy! Hank is a fun, sweet boy, but was lots of work for a while there. I guess that’s puppies for ya!
  • April 2012 – I left Changes Hair Design and finally fulfilled my dream of opening Salon Juleen in our new home.
  • June 2012 – We found out we were expecting a baby!!! I got my first official bout of “morning” sickness just hours after the positive pregnancy test, and it lasted well into my third trimester.
  • January 2013 – Beautiful Baby Emma Grace was born at 37 weeks via Emergency Cesarean Section, due to complications from Pre-eclampsia. I spent 5 days in the hospital and Emma stayed in the NICU for 10 days.
  • April 2013 (Today) – Emma is 14 weeks old, and is keeping us extremely busy, and very entertained! I’ve grown to love motherhood more and more every day, and in ways I never could have imagined!

So since we’ve had a few small life changes, I’m going to attempt to get caught up and elaborate on a few of these significant events over the next few weeks/months.

House Update

We’ve owned our house for over a month, and have done a ton of work to it, but I have yet to write a single blog about it or post a single photo. I have been awfully busy, but that is not the reason for the lack of posting. The problem is a lack of Internet! At the moment I am posting from my phone, therefore this will not be a very lengthy post. We have been having issues with getting out Internet connected since we bought the house. I won’t go into all of the boring details, but it came down to two things. The first was ongoing confusion about which is our new address and which was the old. And second, there was a problem with the phone lines coming in from the street which our DSL requires to connect. I got a call from ACD.net this morning informing me that AT&T had finally rectified the problem, and I went to plug in the modem and router, and realized that the electrician had snipped of the plug end of the phone line because he will be adding a wall socket for the phone once the drywall is done. Arrrrggghhhh! Hopefully we can come up with a temporary fix in the meantime! Regardless, sometime in the near future I will get caught up on posting about of the projects we have completed in the house, with lots of pictures included!
