Back from the land of no internet

I hate moving.

Anyone else with me here?

Sorry to start out on such a downer, but can I get a Heck Yea on that one? Let's just say a week and a half spent moving to the Middle of Nowhere* with toddler in tow and not getting internet set up until a week later is enough to leave me with the shakes. Turns out when you live in The Boonies* you have to bribe the service technician with homemade oatmeal coconut cookies just to get him to drive the 45 minutes to come and install a DSL modem. Who knew? But it's all good now - we are settled, I have internet (YAY!), and with all that free (internet free, that is) time, I made a real dent in my TBR pile. All very good things.

Thanks so much to Holly (isn't she just great?!) for holding down the fort over the last week and for all those who made her feel welcome - I know I've added both The Bride's Farewell and The Lost Conspiracy to my TBR pile *sigh* Thank again!!

* Don't believe me? Think I'm exaggerating? Well, here's picture proof. I give you: The View from my Backyard:

Thanks again for inviting me. We missed you! Glad you're back.

Wow, that view is amazing. It looks like Western Australia where I used to live, but I'm guessing it's Arizona or something?

I have moved seven times in as many years. I hate it.

Holly - truly you are a lifesaver. You should really get your blog going ASAP!!

Rhiannon - yep, high desert it is - otherwise known as southern California. and ouch, 7 in 7? I can't complain when I've lived in the same house for the last 5 years!!
