And in other news, I finally bought curtains. We've lived here for 12 years now and never had curtains. My Mother-in-law had planned to sew us new curtains, but then she got sick and was unable. Other things took priority (as they rightly should), and as she got sicker, curtains became altogether unimportant. Having put them up tonight, I can't believe how much nicer it feels to sit in the living room and not notice the neighbors across the street coming and going. Of course, and perhaps oddly enough, I picked curtains that would match the floors in the new house. We're already making plans on where gardens, out-buildings, the rabbit barn, and the kids' playset will go. The kids discuss it as if it's only a matter of time before we move into that house. They have plans of playing in the woods, exploring the land, claiming their very own bedrooms, and they're all very excited. Hopefully after our meeting tomorrow afternoon I will have more information and at least something of an idea on where we stand and what we need to do next.
And it's snowing... We're supposed to get "up to 6 inches" over the next day and a half. What fun!
