So I haven't been writing too frequently but we've been busy. We are house and dogsitting for a friend from church right now. Well actually we are baby boy mansitting too but that is another story for another post.

But what it does mean is that we are spending most of our time across town, not having our computer nor internet. And the truth is, I really like it. We do spend some time at our house so our cat doesn't get too lonely and we do what we need online while we are there, but when we head over to the house for the night, it isn't around to suck up time. Even with the fancy cable that is there (as opposed to our really cheap cable that gives up the networks, pbs and the history channel only) I feel like I have so much more time in the evenings.

It isn't all good though since I am now growing discontent with my apartment. I love being in a house, especially those in nice family neighborhoods. We took the dog for a walk one evening and just strolled around. Other things I like about the house - the gorgeous backyard. It's huge with a nice plush lawn. We've played Frisbee, grilled and ate outside, and watched the birds actually eating out of the bird feeder. We have had a birdfeeder at our apartment for about 6 weeks now but not a single bird has eaten from it. :-(

I don't really mind living in an apartment, it is just that I haven't lived in the same place for more than a year since I started college and it gets old. With a dad in the military, I always thought when I grew up I would move around less than as a kid, but so far that hasn't been the case and well, I am tired of moving! I am ready to put down roots and decorate and buy furniture from someplace other than a garage sale without having to worry about it getting ruined. But someday we will have our own house, and what is fun about housesitting and moving around a lot is that you can try out different styles and see what you like and don't like and what you think you can convince your husband to agree with even though he says he doesn't like it (read: open floor plans). Someday...


  1. Well maybe if I need my house watched I'll give you a call as well.

  2. As long as we don't have to try to prevent your kids from having parties.
