We're heading off to a cabin tonight in celebration of Husband's 40th (he's FORTY) birthday, which will raise all sorts of questions, such as, is it actually POSSIBLE to work full time all week and then do anything but drool on the weekends? We'll see. In the meantime:
My five favorite things about this house (which I am still, uh, learning to love):
1. It's one floor (with a basement).
2. The laundry room is literally two steps from our bedroom (this is the best set-up EVER and I HIGHLY recommend it).
3. The five floor-to-ceiling windows in the front room (esp. once these windows have been replaced and we no longer spend the winter heating the outdoors with our central air system).
4. The cavernous back porch, sunny and bright midday, shady and cool (yet open to the entire yard) in the afternoon. It's a perfect place to have a beer after work or eat dinner in the summer.
5. Our new master bathroom.
Have a great weekend!
