I want to apologize to everyone for my total lack of updates & posts these last couple of months. It's been a very busy time for me lately. If you don't want to read a long update can skip down to the last 4 paragraphs. Otherwise read on...
As you may know I moved to Sacramento in May/June. Let's just say thin gs didn't go as smoothly as I'd hoped.
I was staying with relatives while I looked for a place of my own. I actually found a very nice place soon after moving & put down an offer on it. Unfortunately some one had beaten me to the punch & made an offer just before me.
This didn't mean I was out of the running. Merely that I was in second place should anything fall thru for the other folks. I was told by the Realtor to hang in there & we would see what happened.
What happened was a whole lot of waiting. First it was waiting to see if their loan got approved. Then I had to wait while they did all the inspections; which included extra inspections above & beyond the normal ones (the other folks wanted these done). Finally had to wait & see whether the other folks got there paperwork in & everything taken care of.
Meanwhile both I & the seller were getting impatient. The other folks had already been given one extension on getting there paperwork in. After missing the second deadline the sellers decided it wasn't worth the hassle & accepted my offer instead. Needless to say I made sure to get everything in as quickly as possible. By the end of June I, finally, had my place!
Now came the hassle of moving all my stuff in, fixing up the place, setting up internet/TV, etc. All the little things involved with moving into a new home. I've always said if there was one thing I hate more than packing & moving, it's moving & UNpacking.
Anyway that's where I'm at now. I'm hoping to have the office painted & set up by the end of next week & the rest of the house set by the end of the month. It's great to finally own my own place & not have to worry about renting anymore!
Once everything is all set I'll be back to posting updates. Have a few sets I'm currently working on that I'm hoping to post to Zivity in the near future. Including an update/re-release of my "Masquerade" set; this time with more, & better, photos. Will post samples & accouterments of the sets here. Don't forget to vote! I also have some individual photos, non-model, photos I've been working on that I'll be posting here. Maybe I'll even post a photo of my new office once it's all set up.
Looking forward to meeting & working with new models in this area. Hopefully I'll be able to find some. Also looking for a good rental studio. Had one lined up while I was in the Bay Area, but unsure of what's available here in Sacramento. Sure I'll find something & some great models though. Just haven't had time to look yet.
Thank you for putting up with my absence. This experience has definitively taught me the truth in the lyric by John Lennon: "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans". Luckily in the end it is all for the good & I'll be back better than ever in the very near future!
