Hello, my friend! Hello!

The Gypsy and the Gypsy's Husband buried alive!
My dear and loyal readers,

First, let me assure you that no, I did not just drop off the face of the earth.  It rather felt that way, but my sudden and abrupt departure was absolutely necessary.  This Gypsy’s life has just been a little out of control in the last few weeks!

As many of you know, my husband and I have been living apart for a little over a year.  His work took him to San Francisco.  But we had a house in Sacramento -- a place where the housing market has been very, very rough.  Last spring, we decided that we would wait until 2010 to list our house and try to live together in one city with the hopes that the housing market would stabilize. 

Well, it did.  And to our surprise, dear readers, our house sold in four days.  In fact, our buyer wanted a shortened escrow period, too.  We were completely surprised!  We thought it would take months for our home to sell, and we were rather unprepared. 

So, in the last month we sold our house (with all the work that comes with that undertaking), found another apartment in San Francisco, moved out of my husband’s old apartment, moved out of our house, and are beginning to settle in at our new apartment. We've only been in our new place about a week, and we are still surrounded by boxes. 

Phew!

Oh! And tomorrow I leave for two weeks in London, Wales, and Ireland.

There are times when it just feels like the Earth is spinning a little too fast!

But the dust has settled a bit, and I’ll be blogging and tweeting my way around London, Wales, and Ireland, so make sure you are set to come along! 

I’ve missed you!  What have you been up to while I’ve been gone? 

Cheers!
A
