Yes, I am Really Busy!

I know, I say that all the time, but the busyness has heightened around here. Why?

Yes, I'm still on my blog tour and that takes a lot of time--but that's not why.

I'm still doing all the things I usually do, so of course that's not why.

I'm beginning to put together ideas for my next Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery, but that's not why.

The big reason is my granddaughter, her hubby and their two little girls have moved in with us. They are buying our house and we'll continue to live with them. They wanted to buy a house and granddaughter mentioned she and her hubby were interested in buying ours. The house is big--we already have a great-grandson and his wife occupying the upstairs bedroom.

This is a great solution for all of us. Hubby could no longer do the up-keep on our old house--grandson-in-law is very handy.

The busyness comes from trying to get all of our possessions situated (blending two households), and two very lively pre-schoolers.

Their tiny dog came along with them--and we have two cats. That's been interesting. The animals mainly ignore each other.

How does this all work while I'm trying to write a new book? Not a problem. The kids love to play in their bedroom and outside. Yes, they do like to come and talk to me--but I love it.

Sounds like a great arrangement all the way around and, that picture is really cute!

Wow. Sounds like a good arrangement. Maybe some adjustments at first, but should be fun.

I am loving it! Two little girls that want to know what I'm doing and giving me big hugs.

Sounds like a good, old-fashioned living arrangement, Marilyn. My grandmother lived with my family from the time I was nine months old.
