Hello everybody. Wow, it has been so long. Stupid computer upgrades.
This is a bittersweet post, as I am saying hello and goodbye at the same time.
All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go,
I am standing here outside my door. . .
Hmm, sounds like similar lyrics to an old, but familiar song.
The long and short of it is that Oak Leaf Forest is closing down for a few months. All the residents are heading out on vacation.
The construction of Willow Ridge has also been put on hold as Builder Sam is busy with one of her children who has just had a major surgery and will require a couple of months to recuperate.
While I am waiting, I can show you some of the little changes that have occurred around here.
Due to major computer issues (namely, Builder Sam's computer being too old to be upgraded and Blogger's changes locking us out from the blog world) we moved the school computer right next to my realtor's office. (This is where this post is coming from.)
(However, if random French words or math equations suddenly appear on screen, it can be attributed to one of these programs logged on this computer.)
WAIT. . . 
I hear a familiar sound. It is very distinct. . . it's the groaning, wheezing sound of time-ancient machinery. . .  Vrreeeow-vreeeow-verrrow. . . .
Yes, it seems my ride is materializing. Better grab my bags off the porch.
Well, it is great to see you all again. I will see you all somewhere down the road.

…Huh. So it's smaller on the outside. Hopefully it will be bigger on the inside.
Time to go.


  1. GAH!!! I mean... I understand. Goodness knows I've walked away from the Wylde Kingdom a time or two... but... but... NOOOOOOOO!!!!

    Anyway... have a good trip, and I hope you can come back soon. You will be missed while you're gone. That's for sure. *hugs all around*

    - Wendy & the rest of the Wylde Kingdom

  2. I am sorry to hear this! Guess you are not making it to the A2 mini show.

    Take care of your living miniature.

  3. Best wishes for a speedy and healthy recovery for your child. I've enjoyed your blog, bit I understand that all good things come to end...or a temporary end when other priorities come up in life. Blessings to you and yours xo

  4. Aw, so sweet. <3
    I was actually just wondering if I'd lost my subscription to this blog or something. I wish for you all the best.

    random, but I am actually doing that same geometry program right now.

  5. You will be missed, but it is understandable. Glad to know you will be coming back sometime though. Will be thinking of Builder Sam and her child as she/he recovers from surgery. Tell Builder Sam to take care of herself too. Have a great vaction!

  6. I join the others to say you will be missed while you are gone... however long that must be! Good luck on your "adventures" outside of blogland! I sure hope you will be back Someday!
    And especially I will wish for a speedy recovery for builder Sam's child!

  7. Hello Isabelle, are you sure you'll fit all your luggage in that Tardis? Hope you have a wonderful vacation, don't forget to email sometime!

    Best wishes to Sam and the family, we all understand family comes first, which is especially true when children need special attention.

  8. And I was first expecting you to leave on a jetplane... I should have known better... ;O) Have fun on your vacation and come back with loads of adventures. My very best wishes to Sam and her whole family, I'm wishing you loads of strength and your child a full and fast recovery. I'm really looking forward to seeing all of you again some day!


  9. wishing you and your child lots of love and hugs as they recuperate. I have missed your blog posts and thought something important in the dreary 'real' life had taken you away from dolly world...hope you come back soon to tell us about your adventures when you get your computer problems worked out. I know all about the health issues as I am having those myself. Take care!
