Crazy Busy

I looked at the blog assignment for this week - um, yeah, I'm up to my eyeballs in boxes and I just can't think straight anymore! I have zero energy left right now and I really shouldn't be on the computer at all. We are moving next weekend and I am so not ready! Very excited about the new house, but I feel like I've hardly made a dent with my packing. (despite the mountain of boxes already packed and piled up in the corner)

So, unfortunately, this is it for my blogging this week I think. What have I gotten myself into!?

Time Turner?

Anyone know where I can purchase a good time turner? I looked for one in Diagon Alley, but no luck. I really need one!!! I signed up for this swap with nothing but time on my hands.... then I bought a house! We take possession on October 15th, so I'm frantically cleaning and packing right now. Can I manage to juggle my Hogwarts schedule and my Real-Life? Hmmmm, I'm sure going to try!
I've got a start on my swap kit, but I'm going to have to leave the hand-made part of it for after I've moved into the new place. (since I've already started packing my craft stuff!)
I'm feeling a bit frazzled, I admit it. But I'm so happy/excited at the same time. :)

New Term!!!

After taking a break from swapping, I'm back for HSKS 12!!!! I'm very excited to be back.... and I'm happy to be part of the "Hermione's Heroic Braniacs" family.
Things were starting to quite down around here, and I was going to have lots of free time..... but then we went and put an offer on a house yesterday!!! SQUEEEEEE!!!! I'm anxiously waiting for a phone call to see if the offer has been accepted. We have a house already, but it's in a rough neighbourhood and we want to get the kids into a better area before they start school (next year, possibly). I really, really, really hope we get this house! (and then I hope we can sell this one quickly!)
