"Home, where my thought's escapin'..."

Oh, my goodness! Not to state the obvious or anything, but it's friggin' cold out! PJ is in bed and I have been up and down trying to get some laundry done. I can't wait until the day comes when I don't have to go outside to get to the washer and dryer!

I finally got outside today after being inside for four straight days! Seriously. Four days. I did manage to have some people come here, so I wasn't completely shut off from society! But between the snow and that coming-down-from-Christmas exhaustion you can only know after a bog holiday has passed, I was more then content to just stay inside, snuggle PJ, chat with Pete, and do housework!

Oh, quit yer laughing! I did do housework! I have been kicking ass and taking names! Kitchen. Clean! Living room. Clean (cluttered with the spoils of PJ's birthday and Christmas, but clean!)! PJ's room. Clean! There's still a lot to be done, but I don't feel like the idea of a clean, orderly house is completely insurmountable! Amazing.

Either way, Pete and I are hoping that 2011 will be our last year of apartment dwelling! For one thing, I'm really just too bitchy to live in this close of a proximity to other people! ;-) Especially in an old house like this one, having three apartments is really like being roommates with the people in the building, and I'm just not good at it! Also, now that we have started a family of our own, and PJ is getting bigger, a two-bedroom apartment just doesn't have the room that we need. While I'll miss the location (we really do live in an awesome spot!) I am praying that the coming year opens a new chapter in our first home!

All we have to do is win the lottery.
