"Just follow your heart and you will find peace in life." - Among Savages
I had a good night's sleep and woke up this morning pain free to lots of glorious sunshine. I tell ya, there's nothing like some sunshine first thing in the morning to brighten up your whole day! This is especially true after the cloudy, dreary day we had yesterday.
As you can see, I broke down and purchased the Constant Salutations top. I wanted to get it in a medium, but they were sold out of them online and at my store. I decided to take a chance and order a small. It's definitely fitted, but I think it looks nice. Jerry approved. I noticed in these pictures that the dye from my jeans has really bled onto my Frye boots from crossing my legs at work. I took some hairspray and a dry cloth to them the other night while watching TV. It seems to have done the trick. I was really freaking out that my Frye's were ruined for life. I need those suckers to last many more years to justify their cost.
House hunting is still going strong. So far, we've found 2 possibilites, both very different from each other. One is new, updated, and ready to move into. The downside is it's a little smaller than we would like. The other one is old and needs lots of updates. However, it has more character, tons of space, and hardwood floors throughout. Oh, and it has stairs...my kids really want stairs. It even has a laundry chute! I want to live there just for that! Still, I don't know if I want to take on another big home improvement project. I already did that with my last 2 houses. I know how expensive and time consuming it can be. Both of these contenders are in the city, but we are suppose to look at a country house this weekend. I'm really excited about that one.
Even after weighing all the pros and cons, I think, just like all important decisions in life, we will end up going with our hearts. It's worked pretty good for us so far. Maybe the right house is still out there, waiting for us to find it, so we're not going to rush this. It took us awhile to find each other, so it might take us awhile to find our home. I'm hopeful, though, because with the dawn of each new day, comes even more possibilites.
