Happy New Year!

My oh my.

It's been a long time since I've written. I'm kind of embarrassed, really, but there wasn't a whole lot I could do about it. I didn't realize just how much I took for granted this whole 'internet'-thingy until I didn't have it anymore.

And I still don't have it. Not at home, anyway. No, this post comes to you thanks to a monumental scheduling misunderstanding which has put me at school with enough time to answer all my emails AND post a blog before my first class of '09 starts. Yikes.

So the above photo is of our house with the roof on and the windows in. The one below is the one I sent out with our Christmas letter. The house looks about the same right now, just with about 2 1/2 more feet of snow on the roof - you probably think I'm kidding - but I'm not

It's been a bumper year for snow, and if it were a cash crop, we'd all be rich.
Our living conditions are much the same as last time I wrote. We're living in the garage, happily using our outhouse and fantasizing about the conveniences of hot running water and indoor plumbing.
The progress on the house has been consistent in speed, and now all the changes that happen are on the inside. The painter is there now, and the inside is slowly changing into a lovely, lovely colour. The kitchen should arrive mid-month, and the lovely couple that are staining our floor will be here in the 3rd week of Jan.

And because everything is so back logged, photo-wise, I had to post a pic of my boys TWO months ago...

Boy it's good to be back.
