Hello, internet friends. Long time no see. That's my fault, I got busy living life and let this old blog collect dust on the sidelines of my internet shelf. You get points for showing up after my ghosting act and bonus points if you can guess the song from my title.
I decided I shouldn't let 2016 close without documenting a little bit of what has happened in the past 6 months of my life. I'm getting old, how else am I going to remember this in a few years?!
// I started a business and I have clients. I thought about telling you all about my business starting venture several times but decided not to bore you with the details. If you want to know more you are welcome to stalk my business website. The extra money is fantastic and if I can keep growing maybe someday it will be the only income maker I need. Goals!
// I bought a house....at the beach! In late October the neighbors showed up and mentioned they were putting their house on the market. I had been staring at their part time vacation house for the almost 5 years I lived here dreaming about what I would do if it were mine. Well, it's mine! WWe closed right before Thanksgiving and then spent the next three weeks moving in and waiting for internet installation. It has 3 bedrooms which if you've followed along before I ghosted you know is the perfect number for us. Best of all a screened in porch where we can enjoy spring, summer, and fall mosquito free. There are still lots of changes we want to make but most will have to wait for warmer weather. In case you are wondering, I did name my beach house as is customary. We are calling her Holy Ship!
// I have read maybe 2 books since July. I've been too busy and distracted to read the way I normally read. I'm hoping after the new year I find a place where reading fits in again.
// My body weight has dwindled and it makes me sad. I know that most people have a problem losing weight and keeping it off but I have always had a problem gaining and keeping weight on. At this point, I'm so unhappy with the way my body looks I'm glad summer is over so I can hide it for a while. I'm not unhealthy, in fact, I feel great. I sure do miss wearing adult clothes, though.
// I staycationed with my sister at the beach in August and it was just as awesome as it is every time I staycation with my sister. We are staycationing again for Christmas but next year we might actually try some non-beach places for our together time.
2016 was the year of Kelli for sure. How has the end of your 2016 looked?
