(Italian people only)What does "Insomma...scusa se non mi sono fatta piu' sempre" mean in English?

Ciao a tutti! Mi chiamo Chris. Studio Italiano per 5 mesi I came across the following dialogue in my Italian textbook today: ##Dialogue 1## " Enrica: Martina! Come stai? Martina : Eh, insomma... scusa se non mi sono fatta piu' sentire, ma abbiamo cambiato casa e cosi' abbiamo avuto un sacco da fare." ###Dialogue 2### "Enrica : E avete dovuto fare dei lavori? Martina : Si', ma in parte li abbiamo fatti da soli, Nicola per fortuna sa \ fare di tutto in casa. Ha imbiancato, ha messo addirittura le piastrelle nel bagno .... Enrica: Ma guarda, per le tende posso darti una mano io, lo sai, io so cucire..." Question 1) The same as the title question. Also what do "se" and " insomma" mean in Dialogue 1 ? Question 2) What doe "Dialogue 2" mean in English? ( Please don't use any on-line translator such as Goggle translator) I am currently studying Italian ( Livello A2) . It's getting hard!But I love Italian langauge :) Grazie mille!
