Long Time Coming . . .

I'm Back!

It's been a long time coming Loyal Readers!

In fact it has been so long since I have written a real blog post, I am a little nervous.

But after 26 days of battling with AT&T, I finally have my Internet connection!  WOO HOO!

In all seriousness, you never realize how much you use the Internet for EVERYTHING until you don't have access to it.

The whole moving process is stressful, and when the first answer to every question is, "Please refer to our website for additional information..."  my response was, "I can't!"  Then, the challenge of trying talk to a live person at any business is like finding a needle in a hay stack.  Good luck!

But we are out of the woods and on to bigger and better things!


In the twelve years that I have lived on my own I have used public laundry mats.  I never felt that my clothing smelled as fresh and clean as when my Mom did my laundry for me.

But now that I have my own washer and dryer, my clothes came out smelling just like when Mom does it!  Woo Hoo again!

And the other night, I used my dishwasher for the first time.  Believe it or not, I had never used a dishwasher before.

All in all I am having lots of "first" experiences and it is exciting.

So here is a little of what has been going on the last four months...

The Song Of The Day - Long Time Coming by The Delays


  1. LOVE IT! I am so excited for you. And your parents are awesome for helping paint the place. I can't wait to see it in person.

    But when you say you have never used a dishwasher, do you mean never? Like even when you were growing up? Wow.


  2. I'll take the dishwasher question. When Jon was growing up I was the dishwasher. A dishwasher came with the Moorpark house but it never worked properly and sounded like a helicopter so it was never used. About two years ago we were doing some things in the kitchen and put in a brand new dishwasher, which is not used very much because two people don't use a lot of dishes. Love the 'half load' setting.


  3. great job jon! i absolutely love love love seeing your smiling face and your beautiful building that's what this was all about. you make a mother cry. i love to see my name mentioned, MOM, along with your own fresh smelling wash. thank you for letting us help and be involved. i guess you get what you pay for; and here's a shout out to dad, good job on whatever the heck i missed seeing you do. you did it well!
    love, your parents

  4. Aww, you made sham oil cry too. Sort of. Happy to see after all the time you spent searching, youve found yourself the perfect home. Congrats!
    So, for real, can I come do my laundry AND dishes over there
