I hope you all enjoyed Adam posting. Hopefully he'll post more often!
I am enduring a winter cold. The congestion isn't as bad as normal, but my throat is quite sore. I came down with it at Mohonk and it has persisted. Luckily, a couple of ibuprofen a couple times a day takes the swelling and pain down. Unfortunately, my voice is almost completely gone. I have been speaking primarily in whispers yesterday and today. This could be problematic because I am singing in a Christmas quartet in a week and a half. We'll see if I'm better by the practice on Sunday. The last time I remember losing my voice was when I first started dating Adam. I'm sure hearing my raspy voice gives him little sentimental tingles.
Last night we put Katrina to bed at 6:30. Adam had scout Roundtable at 7:30 and was reluctant to leave me in the semi-coherent state I was in. I made the decision for him by falling asleep on the couch. I woke up when he came home a few hours later and he helped me move to the bedroom. By 10:30 I was asleep again. Plus, Katrina made it all through the night without a feeding. So we all stayed in bed until almost 8:00 this morning. Why so sleepy? I have no idea. I'm not as sleepy today, but I'm moving around at a pretty slow pace. Yesterday I at least unpacked, put up Christmas lights, and did a few other things. Today I've draped a garland over our food cabinets and that's about all.
So I'm back to my favorite worthless pasttime while Katrina naps--looking for a house to buy. We are locked into this apartment for another six months, but I like to look around and make lists. Then, in six months, if we want to actually buy a house, I'll have a nice handy list of available houses. With this economy, it's not unlikely that many of these houses will still be on the market.
Too bad houses aren't like art. I just bought two large pieces of art on eBay for $.99. They are fairly pretty and will look nice once they are stretched and framed. If I could buy a house on eBay, that would be cool.
I would buy this house in King of Prussia:
It's beautiful on the inside and only about $30,000 out of our price range! I'll take that for $.99, thank you very much.
