Grass is always greener

So my fiancee and I have decided to start looking at houses. We have looked at about 8 so far. We will probably look at 8-10 more from the look of things. A friend told me that you have to look at 40 houses minimum before making your decision. Do you agree or disagree?

What a clever gift idea

I like to give homemade gifts more than something store bought. I feel that it adds a certain something, and when I saw this I thought I'd better share. Give your significant other a gift they can really appreciate. Or if you are a secret admirer and you are ready to let the secret out, make a Scratch Off Photo Valentine card. This doesn't just have to be for valentines day, its appropriate for whenever you want to give a unique photo gift.

Our cat likes plastic bags

I think Kolya likes plastic bags a little too much. Many times I've been woken by the sound of him chewing on them. Knowing that fish oil is used to keep them from sticking together helps me understand a little bit, but no matter what I try he won't break this habit. *sigh*

Stealing Light

A friend of mine suggested that I start reading book one of a trilogy, Stealing Light. He was very much in love with this series and he wanted me to experience this as well. I recently picked up the book and am now about halfway through. I have to be honest, it's been pretty great so far. It doesn't really stay with what I'm used to in most of the books I've read. The lead character keeps having these flashbacks but there isn't really any warning. I'll be reading the current storyline and the next thing I know I'm back in the past. I found it hard to follow at first but now that I'm expecting it I think I like it. Anyway, just wanted to let you know about this if you aren't yet aware.

my old blog died

so my old blog died due to issues with my migration. I decided to go with a cheaper solution. I didn't post that often anyway, so hopefully my 3 viewers will be able to cope. :) If it works out I'll be trying to recover old posts from the other blog.
