"THE FINAL COUNTDOWN"

10....9....8....7....6....5....4....3....2....1...................


Nothing like an 80's hair band reference to express how excited we are to be on the final countdown to the day that I (Kari) MOVE HOME!!! There are many different ways to count, 27 days, 19 work days, 3 more weekends, 2 more evaluations...and all of those things mean I move home THIS MONTH! It's been a very long two years and I haven't decided how to return to the blog. Do I try to update everything? Do I just start again with the status quo and not do an update? It's kinda weird because it feels like a lot has happened and yet a lot still feels the same...

We haven't done much to the house - when you only see your spouse for 48ish hours each week doing home construction every weekend didn't sound super exciting. However we did essentially go to two years worth of estate sales and the "vintage finds" are starting to overtake the house. I'm hoping to do a flea market sale when I come home, so I think that would be fun.

The last two years apart have been tough for sure - we can't express how happy we are to be coming back together and in turn able to get back to normal life which including home renovations, vintage revival, and blogging!!

Glad to hear you are finished with your fellowship or whatever it is. We have missed you. Can't wait to learn what you have squirreled away to work on. Ann

How exciting! I can appreciate the move home countdown too! Are there paper chains involved this time? I can't wait to see the before/after pics of all the great furniture you guys have collected over the past 2 years. Happy last few weeks of post doc!

Thanks Nutbird! You're right, it has been my psychology fellowship and I'm glad to be finished too!

Thanks Bridget! The collection is pretty daunting I will admit. :)
