Iâ€™m BACK! Did you miss me? Itâ€™s taken us almost an entire month to feel half way settled in our new place. The kids are still getting adjusted and my three year old keeps sayingâ€¦ â€œI want to go homeâ€ despite the fact that I tried to prepare him for the move and even had him pack a box of toys for himself. Hopefully as time goes on heâ€™ll accept our new home. We had to live in a hotel that specialized in extended stays for nine days and that was a bitter/ sweet experience. It was like being on Staycation! We didnâ€™t leave town, we werenâ€™t in our home and there were activities for the children to enjoy. The condo was laid out like a one bedroom studio apartment. We had a living room area, dining room area, bathroom, kitchen and bedroom with two queen sized beds. There was lots of storage and closet space to accommodate our belongings. That was a plus! However, when you are used to being in a two story home with three or four bedrooms and you downgrade to a one bedroom condo (even if itâ€™s temporary) itâ€™s definitely something to get used to. Nobody has the privacy and space they are used to AND you drive each other CRAZY!
It was hard to blog throughout this transition due to so many reasons, that chaos of moving but the worst being that I didnâ€™t have internet for the first two weeks in the house. Apparently, this location sucks and Iâ€™m in a blind spot. The internet provider I had basically said that there is nothing they could do about it and maybe I need to look into another company. WOW! I was surprised! Anyhow, Time Warner Cable has hooked us up with cable and internet and Iâ€™m rocking & rolling again! Iâ€™ve also been busy designing site after site, which is a good thing. Not having internet wasnâ€™t helping the situation it was just pro longing my work and causing me to make a list of things Iâ€™d have to play catch up with when everything eventually got settled. The good thing is that Iâ€™ve been too busy to let anything really bother me. Iâ€™ve missed writing and I have a list of blog topics that Iâ€™ll be writing on in the coming days and Iâ€™ll continue to share all my blogging and social networking events with you. I took some pictures when we were at Duke Tower Hotel & Condominiums. I definitely give the hotel five stars on customer service, housekeeping, maintenance, and amenities.Take a look at the picturesâ€¦
