Over the weekend we went to Indiana to a baby shower I hosted with a friend for my sister and her husband. We hooked up a web cam, since they couldn't travel to the party, and it was really fun. It was like, there was this big party, and my sister was in this one corner of the room - and everyone virtually mingled. Web camming is so fun! I'm so excited that we're going to be able to talk face to face (as it were) from now on! Maybe flying cars are next. (When I was a kid, I thought The Future would be all about video phones and flying cars.)

In other news, M. and I are going through the excruciating process of buying our first (and last?) home! The size of our future mortgage sure puts my student loans in perspective. Here's a short list of things I won't miss about apartments:

  • Our insane landlord who feigns Alzheimer's when we remind him again and again what needs fixin', and who, when I called him on our move in day to inform him that A. the front door had come off in my hand and B. there was no seat on the toilet, told me to never call him about "little things."
  • That persistent HAMMERING in the basement. WILL YOU BE QUIET!?!?
  • Doing laundry in a creepy basement with an untended sewer problem (see List Item #1) - exiting building in snow/rain/freezing cold, reentering (poopy) basement, discovering neighbor has used all my fabric softener...
  • White walls. I am SO SICK of white apartment walls.

But, perhaps I am counting my chickens before they hatch...

Yes, the shower was a success!
Hope all is going well with house purchasing:)
We got a web cam yesterday and skyped Carrie already! It is amazing. Look for us when you get your new webcam.
