The Squirrels Stole Our Pizza:  A Housewarming Story


Merry Christmas!  There are a few days of Christmas left, and we’re still celebrating it up. There are lots of reasons to celebrate. We have a house!  Officially!

The Saga of the Last Day

Turns out I am the absolute worst at moving.

A House Hot Mess


  We’ve been seriously looking at zero-entry, handicap accessible houses. I’ve started de-cluttering and cleaning and organizing in order to get our house ready to show.  ‘Cause we can’t buy a house until we offload this one. So it’s serious.  Scrub-the-shower-and-put-the-extra-towels-away serious. Do we need to move today? Nope.  Our house fits us. But we don’t […]
