Moving forward one step at a time.

After what seems like it's been an eternity, we are moving on and building a new nest. Our previous home still hasn't closed. We are on the third, or is it the fourth, buyer. An all cash deal for the bank, this latest one. If they don't accept it, there is something seriously wrong with the banking industry. It's ridiculous!!
We've found a house to begin the rebuilding process and we're starting to feel okay. It's odd to rent after so many years of owning. Our landlords have been kind enough to let us make it our own by allowing us to paint rooms. I've only painted two so far. Macey's bedroom and my studio are a beautiful shade of soft pink. That's enough for now.
The cats seem to have weathered everything just fine and have found their favorite spots.
And would you look at our sweeter than ever granddaughter!! She celebrated her second birthday in May. Can you believe it?!! :)
Now that I have a studio in which to work and spread all my projects around, I'm back to creating again. I'll post tour pictures soon. For now though, it's enough for me to have a blog post up letting everyone know we are on the mend and have so very much to be thankful for. Thank you for hanging in there with us and cheering us on as we move forward.

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

So glad to hear you're moving forward with your lives. We know how tough it's been being self employed ourselves, it sucks right now! You and your husband are an inspiration to all us! Wishing you all the best.
PS-
Can't believe this was the little baby you had out at the show 2 years ago, what a cutie!

Hang touch, girl. I know the strange feeling of finding yourself renting and starting to recreate a home after owning, and all of the turmoils with home sales all too well.
Just take it a day at a time and remember the important things in life aren't things.
