Husband and I are now homeowners, having acquired a cool old house in a nearby suburb. What really sold me on it though were the shed by the garage (keep gardening and lawn care stuff in it), the well in back (save on water bills when watering the yard), and an all-weather gazebo! (Hello entertaining!)
First things first: we need to get a washing machine as the house currently doesn't have one.

Well, it looks like I won't have to look for a job and place to live in Toronto, Winnipeg, or Vancouver anytime soon. The people of the US got it right and most efforts at vote fraud failed miserably. It's times like this that I am proud to be an American and that I exercised my right to vote.
