An Update on My Whereabouts

Where oh where has Polly gone?
Here I am!

Geez, you'd think I got lost as long as I've been gone.
Thank you all for your patience while I get my life organized.


Where do I start?
I'll just start from the beginning.

Nothing really earth shattering has been going on here, just life in general.

As we all know, even the best laid plans can run amuck sometimes.
So, here's part of what's been going on the past month.

1. Hubby had some medical issues (twice) and needed my full attention. Poor guy was absolutely miserable, and he wasn't getting any sleep. He's doing much better now but is still facing some surgery.

2. I got sick myself (after him, thank goodness). I had some kind of awful stomach thing going on that lasted 10 days. In bed for almost 5 of those. Serious pain kinda thing.
 And right before that started, I got another migraine.
Another situation of complete agony.
The migraines are bad enough without the excruciating pain that kept me doubled over for over a week.

3. During my time away from the blog, I did 2 markets.
For those of you who do them, you know how much work they require.

4. I had 3 drapery jobs that had to be fabricated and installed.

5. I had family stuff that needed tending to, which required me to be at my mom's on three separate ocassions. (About a 2 1/2 hour drive each way.) It's always hectic activity there, so blogging is out of the question.
.........and if that wasn't enough on my plate......
6.  I'm getting ready for a neighborhood yard sale tomorrow. 
(although the weather is calling for a 60% chance of rain)

If you're local to Bowling Green, KY, let me know in the comments and I'll send you the info.

In addition to that, I have 2 more exciting things going on, but I can't let the cat out of the bag just yet.
Still some details to work out and some dotted lines to sign, but as soon they are done deals, you'll be the first to know.

If you follow me on FACEBOOK, you'll know even sooner than that.
I'll be back to regular blog posts on Monday. You know, the actual decorating kind.

AND, many of you asked me about when I'll be picking back up on The Home Decor Series.
I'm happy to say that I will be returning to that next week as well.
Those post take a really long time to plan out, so I had to put them aside for a while,
but I have several prescheduled already that will begin next week.

Ok, that's my update. I still have a busy weekend ahead of me, but I'll meet you back here on Monday!

What's been keeping you busy?

    I was going to send you a pic of my LR/DR area to get your wisdom on how to place furniture. Is that something I could throw at ya? If not, that's totally ok, I have 47 million other things I could be doing. One of them is blogging. Goodness. I haven't been there in months!!!
